Bold and memorable, the Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake is a heady blend of Dark Fired Kentucky and Virginias with a topping of Tonka Bean (you might know it as Tonquin). The result is a sophisticated blend that pleases the most mature and discerning of pipe smokers. But beware, this blend packs a punch in both strength and flavor.

This was my first time with this blend. The tin note is different with the tonquin bean extract. I love the unique tin note, dark, rich, earthy, and for lack of a better way to describe it . . . a roasted bean. My wife says it stinks in the tin like something dead. I strongly disagree. My eldest daughter loved the tin note and disagrees with her mom also. The smoke is deep, rich, earthy, and has a depth that you don't find in a lot of blends. Room note is pleasant, and my wife says the room note smells nothing like the tin note and she barely notices it when I smoke it. Wife approved, and I really, really like this blend. I just hope I can keep enough in my cellar until the next shipment.
