|Tobacco||Dark Fired Kentucky, Virginia|
|Room Note||3 - Balanced|
Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake is a legendary, full-bodied mixture of deeply matured Virginia and dark-fired tobaccos which are pressed into a cake with is further matured under pressure and steamed until dark. The cakes are sliced and finished with a tonquin dressing for the characteristic flavor. This is best enjoyed by experienced pipe enthusiasts.
This is one of the richest tobacco I ever had. Very tasty stuff indeed. Incredibly smooth for how strong it is. Perfectly balanced. You know your smoking quality tobacco from an experienced company. Theres a reason pipe smokers all over the world seek their tobacco out for over a century. Enjoy a classic.
This is my favorite early morning tobacco. The tonquin bean is slightly pronounced without overpowering the flavor of the tobacco and it tapers off as you progress through the bowl. It is nowhere near as prominent as the topping in say Dark Flake Scented so this makes 1792 a great choice for someone wanting to venture into milder Lakeland tobacco. I do smoke this out of a small bowl due to the higher nicotine content. But if you sip your pipe you should not have any trouble.
1792: well after a big meal, I packed my Pipe with this infamous tobacco...Now I know what tonquin bean taste like. Don't run from this flake if you know you like Lakeland tobaccos. My favorite flake(G&Hco. Scottish flake) is a tamed down 1792. 1792 flake will be my go to winter tobacco.
I had to work with the cut and it was a little to strong for me and burned to hot. But the room note was great. I give it a 4/10
One of my favorites off-the-desktop and into one of my more quality pipes . Full Strength and pleasure right now, but yet with a Pleasant room note.
