|Room Note:||2 - Mellow|
Samuel Gawith Bothy Flake was made for the Kearvaig Pipe Club. It's a flake made of ripe, matured Virginias which are combined with a modicum of smoky Latakia and then pressed and sliced into easy to prepare flakes. The Virginias used have more depth than most flue-cured tobaccos, and retain a mellow sweetness that's perfectly compatible with the small amount of Cyprian Latakia. To tie the flavors all together, and to add a bit to the aroma, they infuse the tobacco with a splash of peaty Scotch whisky. The result is gently sweet, with nice depth and a pleasant, tangy finish.
