Taste: Medium to Full
Room Note: Pleasant
You simply cannot call yourself a pipe smoker until you have tried Samuel Gawith’s Full Virginia Flake. Chances are, once you have tried it, you will become hooked.
This flake contains nothing but Virginia tobaccos, with their unmistakable sweet flavour, creamy richness and perfect burn. Hot-pressed, the blended Virginias take on a beautiful and distinctive dark colour and create a pipe smoker’s dream – a feeling of calm, serenity and anticipation of the next pipeful.
If you have only ever smoked aromatic blends, you are in for a pleasant surprise: pipe tobacco can be truly delicious without any extra flavouring! Full Virginia Flake delivers a pure taste, mildly tangy dark-fruit sweet and very earthy, with a touch of pepper and spice, a fair amount of wood, a little tart and tangy citrus, grass and mild floral notes.
It burns slow, with a very consistent cool, clean flavour, it will never give you tongue bite or get harsh, and it has a pleasantly lingering aftertaste. With its medium strength, this can be an all-day smoke.
