If you’re an Aromatic smoker looking to try something with a little Latakia, the Chocolate Flake from Samuel Gawith might be just what you’re looking for. It’s subtle on chocolate flavor, has hints of Latakia and is not over-powering. It’s the perfect transitional blend for those not yet ready for a full-on English. Wet out of the tin, this flake needs a bit of drying out time for the flavor to be at its best and for an easy lightening experience.

    Tastes Like a Chocolate Milkshake

    Posted by Walt on 18th Dec 2018

    I've bought quite a bit of this Virginia based Samuel Gawith: Mayor's Chocolate Flake recently as it is so very very good. Tins & 250 g boxes. In lovely flake form, it's not a goopy aromatic but as others have noted, this Chocolate Flake has a lot more chocolate flavor than GH Bob's Chocolate Flake. It's truly wonderful. A "luxury blend?" Yes. It truly taste's like I'm smoking a chocolate milkshake. Very tasty and satisfying. It is clean and cool burning and leaves a pleasant, fresh aftertaste in the mouth. I don't taste much latakia in this at all, so if there's a lot in it, it's been expertly blended. Its wonderful with morning coffee. I find it's best enjoyed in a large diameter, deep-chambered pipe.

    On Drying: This blend comes very wet in the tin or box. This might sound heretical but I rub out however much I'll need and then microwave it on a plate for 20--30 seconds. I place it on the table under a ceiling fan while I prepare my pipe. Within a couple minutes, it is dry enough to enjoy. Drying this tobacco does not affect its flavor at all that I can tell.

    Chocolate Milk Shake In A Tin

    Posted by Walter Puciata on 5th Dec 2018

    With my favorite morning smoke, Gawith, Hoggarth & Co Brown Flake (Unscented) out of stock everywhere I am glad TobaccoPipes had this blend for it has filled the nitch nicely. Needs a lot of drying for it comes pretty damp, and loses no flavor by drying. There is no Lakeland scent on the tobacco and one really can taste the chocolate. The latakia is a background player; hardly noticeable. Leaves a nice clean aftertaste in the mouth and a great room note.

    For the Wife

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Jun 2017

    Bought this with the wife in mind. Not a bad smoke, but, not my favorite. If you like mild, then, you should like this. My wife loves the aroma, so, got to keep her happy. I prefer a richer, stronger smoke, so, I generally go for dark fired blends. If your taste is like mine, give "Orlik" Dark Strong Kentucky a try. Don't think you'll be disappointed.
