Gawith and Hoggarth's scented dark flake is comprised of Malawi dark fired leaf, which is slightly smoky, but much more subtle and totally different flavour profile than Latakia; the other tobacco is Indian dark air cured leaf. This is a strong to very strong smoke, spicy to my palate, a hint of smoke. Flavoured with Tonquin Bean, it is a very traditional British Isles type flake. If you like a pint of ale and tweed jackets you will like this tobacco. It is Highly Recommended, but only if one enjoys strong tobacco. It has a kick.
