Samuel Gawith Chocolate Flake is not exactly what it would appear. Fine Virginias and Burleys are pressed with a hint of Latakia and pressed with a subtle chocolate note, designed to enhance the flavor and to add a subdued note to the aroma. It's a smooth, creamy, soft flake that will appeal to a wide range of enthusiasts. One of most subtle of the Lakeland flakes, Chocolate Flake is a wonderful after-dinner treat.
This is a fantastic flake. The primary component, as far as taste, is the lovely earthy, nutty, musty burley. Secondly is the topping which is not chocolate but a more bitter cocoa. While smoking this blend the Virginia's, which are sweet, poke its head out occasionally to make the cocoa turn chocolate for moments until the blend returns to again to its original, burley cocoa, state. This is a slightly aromatic that burley lovers will enjoy greatly.
This tobacco gives off an aromatic room note, but smokes and tastes like a bit like an English blend. The Mrs. loves it. It's one of my new favorites.
