Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake Tobacco
Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake Tobacco is a full-strength, mellow tobacco comprising a blend of dark-fired Tanzanian leaf. The blend is best selling premium grade flake.
Since 1792 the process of making this tobacco has remained the same. It starts as 7 lbs. of hand stripped leaf and goes through a steaming process prior to being pressed. The cake, having been prepared, is wrapped in a select leaf and packed by hand into a 12 inch square. This cake is pressed and left for a minimum of two hours. Then, the pressed cake is placed into a steam press where it is baked at full heat for two to three hours. The baked cake has then taken on 1792’s characteristic rich, dark color. It’s hardening occurs during cooling. Once the process of cutting the flake and adding a tonquin flavor is carried out, hand wrapping and packing finalizes 1792, making it ready for rubbing into your pipe.
