I really like Samuel Gawiths 1792 flake. But nicotine hit is too high for me. Has anyone got a suggested alternative with a lesser nic hit?

I am actually at a loss to recommend anything here. 1792 is unique - that sort of Vanilla, Chocolate and Leather taste.

I definitely felt the same re. nicotine when I was starting out. Over the years my tolerance for nicotine has increased dramatically and now I can enjoy a bowl of the stuff quite happily. It is nice to have some heavier options in the tobacco bar.

Kind of depends on which features you want to continue. PC's Russ O. has an interesting blend, Fire Storm, that has Virginia and dark-fired, I think with some Perique, that might work for you, whether it fills this niche or not.

It's kind of hard to suggest a match with something that contains tonquin bean in it.

I haven't opened my only tin, so I haven't tried it yet, but my understanding is Sam's Flake has a similar topping over much lighter base tobacco. VaTur blends are generally thought to be on the light side of the N spectrum.
I agree Sam's Flake might work. I just had a tin. It's definitely lighter than 1792 in all respects.

Thanks for enabling, it's in my next order from the US once it's back in stock - seems to go fast!

I wondered the same because I absolutely love 1792 Flake, wouldn't be that good (for me) if it wasn't strong in nic. I came up with the below so in my mind at least it's either Gawith or War Horse bar. Not sure about Anisette in War Horse though, I'm not a fan of anything with anise or licorice, in any form, even though it's a very popular flavouring in my country.

I hate aniseed and liquorice but I can't taste any of either in War Horse Bar. Maybe I've got a defective palate but it tastes more savoury to me. I don't get any floral essences or even valerian root. It does have a decent amount of nicotine in it - maybe a little more than HH Bold Kentucky. That's how it feels to me at least.

Try some granulated rubber cased with creosote. That will get you close.
Just kidding (sort of). I hope you find what you’re looking for 👍

This the tobacco of the Gods, no alternative...
