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.
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.
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!
