After a couple of inquiries we have added this characterful flake to our shelves. And why haven’t we been asked for this before now?? The same day we put this out in our Scarborough branch it began “ah you’ve got my favourite in” and “oh you’ve got Bob’s flake in i’ll take a couple of ounces” (Of course we weighed them 50g to be politically correct!)
The Gawith Hoggarths Bob’s Flake is a rich full flavoured flake tobacco comprising of 8% Latakia, 82% Virginia from Brazil, Zimbabwe & Malawi, 8% Malawi Sun Cured & 2% Malawi Burley. The blend has been generously cased with rich flavours of Cocoa and Vanilla. The clash of the Latakia with the sweet casing provides a unique aroma as the two distinctive flavours almost come together in harmony in a way you would never expect. Gawith Hoggarth were really being adventurous when they blended this one but the risk paid off.
Opposers of anything Latakia should still sample this blend in the same way smokers who detest anything remotely sweet should not disregard this unique blend.
Flake Pipe Tobacco:
The Gawiths Bob’s Chocolate Flake is sold in Flake form. Flake tobacco usually requires rubbing (breaking up) before it can be smoked. The tobacco can be rubbed to the smokers preference depending on whether they prefer a slow or fast burn rate.
