Loose Bosun Flake
Gawith Hoggarth loose Bosun Flake is a blend of fire cured, dark fired and air cured Virginia leaf cased with geranium and clove natural oils. The flue cured Virginia’s provide an earthy, spicy, plummy base which is enhanced by the smoky, woody notes of the dark fired leaf. The air cured Virginia’s provide a light sweet note which enhances the lightly added clove and rose geranium oils. A complex, rewarding and smooth smoke this blend is medium to full in terms of its strength and nicotine content.

Gawith Hoggarth loose Bosun Flake generally does not require any additional drying and you can prepare this flake tobacco in a number of ways:
Folding and stuffing. Fold the flake in half long ways against the grain of the flake. Fold the flake in half again this time with the grain to form a square. Gently squeeze the tobacco before stuffing into the pipe bowl.
Rubbing out. Rub the flake gently between the hands to break up the flake to desired thickness before loading the pipe.
Rolling. Roll the flake with the grain generally lengthwise, squeeze gently and load into the pipe bowl.
Whichever method you use is a question of personal preference but the tobacco is best packed lightly to prevent any draw problems as flake tobacco tends to expand more so than ready rubbed tobaccos.
To fully appreciate the flavour and taste we recommend that the mixture is packed loosely and smoked at a slow pace to prevent the tobacco burning hot which will impair the taste and aroma, cause the pipe to overheat and potentially causing the dreaded tongue bite.
We carefully weigh and pack all our loose tobacco in a branded non-resealable pouch to ensure that the tobacco arrives with you in perfect condition. Orders for 500g of Gawith Hoggarth loose Bosun Flake will be despatched in the manufacturers original packaging.
