Samuel Gawith Navy Flake is a classic blend made with a classic formula. Virginia tobaccos with a small amount of Latakia pressed in flakes that are thick and stunning to look at. A sweet smooth smoke is offered all the way through. A medium bodied-smoke that is easy to enjoy all day. A tobacco that should be stocked up on as age can do incredible things to the flavor of this spectacular blend.

    Pretty good tobacco once it dries enough to accept flame. Fruity and spicy on the palate. Floral on the retrohale. Worth a try.

    Glad many don't "get it"

    Posted by Thomas Connelly on 7th Apr 2022

    I am tickled that many out there just don't get this flake. It's fantastic and that means more for me. Unlike their straight VAs etc this one stays on the shelf for a while before selling out. Give me time to buy it a bit at a time since it's not cheap and I can't just buy tons of it all at once.

    good blend

    Posted by bob on 30th Jan 2022

    The virginia tobacco is in front, the rum based topping is high sugar and makes that lovely candied flake we all enjoy. latakia? small smokey base for the virginia to start from. I like navy style with the rum and they are the few blends that allow a topping to help the blend. Thick, dry/moist flakes that you have to shake out quite a bit pack well with a light touch. With a good rest in the bowl the tobacco will light with relative ease. It does need relights but the slow burn is cool and flavorful, the relights simply add a burst of flavor. With a blend this sweet it does need a slower sip and can tingle if puffed too hard once fully lit. Take some time to allow the cool smudgy smoke to develop and One gets those delightful full flavors easily. As a traditional blend type this is an excellent choice that any Enthusiast should try. For the newcomer this blend will be a bit more work to prepare properly and will challenge those who seek milder blends. For those that desire more flavor this is worth a try and is on my reorder list.

    Navy Flake

    I mostly taste the rum. I was curious about the lakia, but I don't taste it at all Ho-hum. Even if it was always available I wouldn't order more.

    I approve

    Very good Virginia smokes smooth, rubs out into a nice fluffy pile, the smell from the jar is amazing. I don't pick up any rum flavoring but I'm fine with that. A good solid smoke.

    This is a great Latakia, Virginia with a nice rum note. Really nice blend. Simple in design, and complex at the same time.

    I was very impressed with how smooth and cool this flake smoked. I ordered 2 tins one for now and one to age. I will need to order more for aging this is great tobacco and doubt the 2nd tin will get more than a couple months on the shelf.
