Gawith & Hoggarth Ennerdale Flake

Ennerdale is easily Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s most popular flake tobacco. It's predominantly Virginias, from a number of grades and locales, to which some Burley is added. What makes Ennerdale stand out is the fragrant Lakeland topping that brings images of a number of traditional British flakes to mind.

Aged like a fine wine
This is a review of the tobacco I had in the cellar from 2005. I opened the far and breathed in the aroma, a lot of the Lakeland sent has subsided. The flakes were slightly bloomed and the tobacco moisture was excellent. Rubbed out a flake and loaded a cob. First light and the room note was there. My wife even commented on how good it smelled. The first tastes weren't good. I wondered if I had waited too long. But after a few puffs the Virginias started to come on. Still nothing great. Then the magic happened, once I got into the middle of the bowl it all came together. Sweet, soft and complex. The toppings melded with the tobacco flavors and it became delicious. Burns well with only two relights, due to my sipping rythm. This is much better than the fresh tobacco I have. Highly recommend you buy and cellar some for yourself.

Keeping it brief as there are plenty of good, detailed reviews. If you like floral you’ll like this.

Distinct Lakeland floral essence. Rose, herb,sweet and perfume like. This is a powerful tobacco if not sipped lightly, and will catch up on you with nic hit. Very nice tobacco and unique aroma. Grows on you.

Ennerdale Flake moves to #1
It's everything. Awesome taste and lots of it, stays lit with easy draw on the pipe, no bite, and very unique. Don't find many like this, I love it!

Whole lotta granny going on.
So a lot of the folks on a pipe forum have a lot of good things to say about Lakelands - certainly enough to generate curiosity. I therefore through an oz sample of Ennerdale Flake in my last P&C order. I've tried fold n' stuff, cube cutting, and rubbing out. I've tried filling my pipe with flake straight out of the Ziploc, and letting it sit out overnight to dry. I've tried it solo, and mixed with 965. I can see what it is about Lakelands that generates such extreme, love-it-or-hate-it opinion. The 'pouch' note is of baby powder, as is the room note according to my girlfriend. The taste, though, is of flowers. The casing is strong enough to mask completely any tobacco flavors, so I cannot opine on their quality. I am in the middle of the road on this mixture. It is not unpleasant, but it leaves my tongue numb and my palate exhausted. I am nearly through the ounce, and have rubbed out what I have left and hatred it with some 965 - for some reason the combination is really good. Perhaps if I dried it longer, to drive off the heavy casing, my opinion would change.

Ernendale flake
This is so far my favorite aromatic

Unique and pleasant smoke!
Some of the reviews I read said it was overpowering and it would ghost your pipe. However I did not find this to be true. I enjoy this tobacco and will keep in my rotation!

Great Lakeland Flavor
Very interesting blend. I'm new to Lakelands and I enjoy this very much. Mellow flavor with just a hint of almond and other botanicals. Pleasant room notes.

Earl Grey Tea with Cream and Sugar
Really great tobacco. A little soapy at first but after a few days to breathe and a good amount of drying the flavor for me, is unmistakable. Strong Earl grey tea with cream and sugar, mixed with that classic floral burley flavor. The essence in much like oil of bergemont, if not exactly that. Decided to give this one a try and so glad I did. Im not an aero guy but this type of sweet tobacco I love.

Magic stuff here.
I am proud to count myself in the crowd who immediately understood this blend. I won't get into the notes, but I will say that I really enjoyed this tobacco right out the tin. Then, a few minutes the first smoke I walked down the hall and the residual smoke on my clothes wafted into my! that was one of the most pleasing and exotic fragrances I had ever experienced. It smelled like a wonderful, other worldly what a wizard would smell like. Yes, I know, very bizarre thing to say...but I'm calling it how I experienced it. I can't wait to impregnate my tweed blazers with it. Again, strange thing to say, but I figure if you're smoking this you are an eccentric too. And yes, I definitely recommend devoting a corn cob to this one. The presence lingers.

Floral Infatuation
There is no tobacco perhaps more polarizing than Ennerdale (that is, until Trump starts his own brand…): It’s floral, incense-sy, heliotrope-laden virginias and nutty burley goodness worshipped or reviled. I’m in the worship camp. In fact, since ordering, I barely touch any of the other baccy in my open rotation (some 15 tins asking to be smoked and another 24 jars…). But nothing comes close to the ethereal smoky perfume of Ennerdale. Soapy? Depends what your grandma wore i guess… it is has a powdery-floralness thanks to a good bit of geranium aldehydes and heliotrope more at home in a bottle of Chanel no.5 but quite at home here too. Underneath that— and really in tandem as even the bombastic scent does not high-hide but highlight the actual smoke— is high-quality long-leaf and matured virginias and burley, both setting the stage for a fantastic smoke. Does it have the lovely smoked-meat tones of a stout Latakia blend? No. Caramel-sweet nutty burley? No. Figgy tea-like delicateness? No. But that’s not why one smokes Lakelands!

A Very Unique Aromatic
This is a very unusual blend. It has a very floral note that is very appealing to me but may not be for all. I was able to pick up an almond/anisette taste along with the floral notes. The flavors really show up on the retohale. I purchased several tins of this blend and I will continue to purchase it as it has quickly become one of my favorite aromatics. Warning: this blend may "ghost" your briar so I would suggest dedicating a pipe to Gawith and Hoggarth blends or investing in a corn cob.

At least, I hope not. Personally, I love it, but then, I've only been smoking for about 60 years, so don't go by what I say. There's a singular, spicy aroma to Ennerdale, and though flavorful, it's mild enough to smoke all day; you tough guys will want to avoid becoming known as "Ennerdale Flakes" for sure . . . which will leave more on the shelf for wiley old farts like me.

Ennerdale Flake's ghost will destroy your pipe. It's taste is overwhelming. I will never purchase this again. I do not recommend it.

wierd flavor
Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s demographic for Ennerdale flake is an aromatic that tastes exactly as it smells. Unfortunately, Ennerdale flake taste awful. It's so hard to find decent pipe tobacco.

acquired taste
It will take time for my palate to mature enough to acquire a taste for this very fine tobacco blend.

Ennerdale ordor
I have agree with JR of Hydro OK this tobacco does have funky smell and it also leaves a floral taste in your mouth. Right now I have a tobacco pouch and two pipes that have that smell. SB of Wisconsin

My most frequently smoked baccy.
My favorite pipe tobacco. It's not for everyone, but it's definitely unique. Seems it's a love it/hate it type. About midway through a bowl the lakeland flavorings take a back seat and it brings out a sweet creamy nutty flavor of a good mild tobacco. Would recommend a dedicated cob, it will ghost.

No, Ennerdale is prob'ly not for you, and if you don't order it, maybe they'll have some when I want to reorder, because this is one of my favorite flakes. Smokes nice and slow, with a pleasant taste and (I assume) a nice odor. No, you prob'ly won't like it. Now if only I could convince the hundreds of other fans, too, I'd be sitting pretty!
Customer Testimonials
This stuff is very different. The tobacco is a nice cut and consistency, a little damp. The smell, that's where things get funky. Imagine Grandmother's perfume sprayed on a urinal cake and you have it. My wife thinks it smell like some nasty floral potpourri. I let it dry a bit before I lit it. The taste was just as it smelled, I tried several bowls in two different size pipes. I can't tell you what the room not was because this stuff just overwhelms you. It is not for me. Now to the worst part. It will haunt the pipe you smoke it in! My small cob still gets a hint of this vile stuff after 5-7 bowls other blends (CH, PA, and CB Dark). My Yello Bole I'm probably going to salt. I'm putting this up in a jar and will revisit it in a year. My final impression. I think that cow processed Oklahoma wheat grass might smoke better.
JR of Hydro, OK
Had to buy a Cobb to smoke Ennerdale Flake. Wasn't sure I was going to like it, but had already purchased it. I'm glad I did. If you want the Almond forward flavor, rub it out and let it air out for 2 hours. The floral Lakeland will take a back seat mid bowl and a nice Vanilla Almond Virginia flavor will greet you. Great stuff!
