DESCRIPTION
The first of a collection dedicated to Samuel Gawith 1st, Chocolate Flake is a luxury blend of Virginias, Burley and long-leaf Latakias. To complete the luxury a rich, dark chocolate has been added after cutting. Excellent smoking qualities with good smoke and a delicious room-note. Medium strength.

An Aromatic for People who Don't Like Aromatics!

If you’re looking for a blend that will bombard your taste buds with sweet chocolate flavours, you would be well served to keep looking. Very lightly cased, Samuel Gawith Chocolate Flake offers a very pleasant tobacco flavour, with a room-note that seemingly doesn’t drive anyone away (my wife being the exception). Great "fresh" from production, Chocolate Flake ages exceptionally; with the sweetness seemingly growing exponentially. While a little too full-bodied for all day smoking, this is a wonderful blend - particularly after a large meal.

I highly recommend it!

Samuel Gawith - Chocolate Flake

 A very pleasing SG blend. Chocolate is subtle and so is the latakia. Hand rubbing is suggested. I did not need to dry it. Very mild for a SG tobacco. Recommended! Will buy more.

Update 4/16/19 The square tins SG uses do not keep air out! While the tobacco came to me a bit on the moist side, it is now brittle after only a month or so. However, it still smokes well, tastes good but I am detecting more of the Latakia than before. The Lakeland scent seems to be all but gone.
If you plan to cellar it don't open the tin!
