I just got Gawith Rum Flake from the recent drop. Its supposed to be rich, sweet, rum and maple. I stuffed it into a small Boswell poker pipe. All I tasted was cream and burley. I chopped and gravity fed into an older Pererson Wicklow from reborn pipes. Again, burley, nothing else. A little creamy. I rubbed it out with my fingers. Finally, some scent on my fingers .. . perhaps maple. I put it into an older Bertram pipe. Perhaps a bit of flavor. Tasted good but couldn't put my finger on it. Its an aromatic but to me, sooo mild. Point is, there was a subtle change for the good. I'm beginning to think when a tobacco and method works good in one of your pipes, lock it down. I'm in this for the pleasure and peace of mind. With that particular tobacco, in that particular pipe, with a rubbed out packing. I had my first enjoyment with this tobacco. I will now repeat the same process in the same pipe to see if it is sustainable. Quite a revelation for me. Still a noob.
