Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake – Pipe Tobacco Reviews

Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake Pipe Tobacco Tin

I have smoked this blend in both tinned and bulk. The tobacco in the tin contains a little more moisture and that is where the differences end. I can detect no difference in flavor, aroma, or any other qualities from either the tinned or bulk. The tin aroma is a straight forward Virginia tobacco aroma. It is accompanied by that tangy Virginia smell that I find really appealing with a very slight sweetness far in the background.

I have taken a couple of flakes (Fig 1) and folded them over and fully rubbed them out into a slightly chunky mixture (Fig 2). I gravity fed the bowl and finished it off with a very light amount of pressure to pack it down. Upon the charring light I am met with the natural sweet aroma of the tobacco. I finished lighting the tobacco and settled in for a nice smoke.

The first thing that I noticed is the nice natural sweetness of the Virginias, it is very nice. At no time did the tang from the tin aroma make itself known in the taste of the tobacco. There was just that nice Virginia sweetness. There is nothing complex about this blend, but it is a great smoke. It is a straight forward tobacco blend. It has a slight naturally sweet finish that lingers for a bit. If you push it too hard, it will bite. So be careful and take your time to slowly smoke this and savor every puff.

Now make no mistake; this blend might not be complex, but it is a great pure Virginia blend. In my opinion, it is one of the best Virginia blends made. It is in my top 5 favorite tobaccos and has been since I first smoked it about 3 years ago. If you like or love Virginia blends, (I love them), this is an absolute must try. I Highly Recommend it.
