Gawith & Hoggarth Grasmere Flake

If you're one of those people who find Gawith, Hoggarth & Co.'s Ennerdale Flake to be a little too heavy in flavoring, but find Kendal Flake a bit too tame, Grasmere should be right up your alley.
This medium-bodied flake is made of superb Virginia and Burley with a noticeable, but not overwhelming touch of rose and geranium. This is still a fairly robust blend, so you may want to reserve Grasmere Flake for an enjoyable evening repast.

A First-Rate Second-Rate Smoke
Not my favorite, but notable. Has a sharp-pointed sweetness that is very distinctive, like floral scented super ripe Virginias. It smoothes out a lot as the bowl burns down. Not an exceptionally rich or remarkable tobacco, but it burns and rubs out very well. The intensity of its flavor was surprising at first, but now I've come to anticipate it with pleasure. Because it lacks a certain measure of complexity, I'm going to stick with Kendall and BB #2 as my mainstays. But this will certainly occupy a spot in my rotation.

This is different
Tried this recently and must say it's different than any other English or aro I've come across. The long flakes are a bit moist but pack and burn well. Smoked slowly there's no wet dottle. Taste comes across as floral but not overpowering. Wife says the room note reminds her of warm jelly toast. I actually like it!!

For Lakeland lovers
Dark v pliable flakes, with lighter colors interwoven, in the bag modest rose notes. Pre-lighting in the pipe, the rose scent/taste was certainly there (reminding me of various rose-flavored sweets). Smoking, the essense was a bit stronger than Glengarry Flake, but nowhere near the levels of some of the other GH scented tobaccos, probably between Glengarry and SG Kendall Cream Flake, maybe (for me) around the level of Louisiana Flake (which I also liked) or a bit stronger. The room note (well, car note) when I went to check was more of a straight darkish VA, with just a hint of rose that might have been my imagination. The N-level was strong, but not overwhelming. Of course, Lakelands do not please everyone . . . ok, Lakelands are popular with only a few pipe smokers. If you have no experience with them, the Rose/Geranium will seem a lot stronger than it actually is.

Not too much going on here...
Good timing on P&C's request for my feedback, as I just last night had a bowl of Grasmere Flake. I wanted to say good things, but this is my third round with it and I'm not impressed. I've tried it slightly moist and also dried out. I know some of these flakes can behave, well, "flaky" so I cubed it once as well, to see if that would bring out more flavor and character. The only thing I detect is a mild chocolate element, no grassy or earthy notes, maybe a little plant-like muskiness, but other than that, not too much going on here.

Like all Gawith Hoggarth products this is excellent tobacco, that said I found the flavoring a bit odd; like a perfume. However after finishing one bowl I almost like it. I will smoke another soon.
