Loose No.7 Broken Flake
Gawith Hoggarth No.7 Broken Flake Loose is a blend of flue cured and dark fired Virginia’s and Burley leaf topped with a vanilla and Lakeland essence. The flue cured Virginia’s are the major component of the blend with their sweet notes of citrus and hay. The dark fired Virginia adds complementary notes of smoke and spice. The Burley adds to the rich tobacco base with notes of earth, nuts and wood. The blend is enhanced by the lightly added vanilla which marries the complex flavours perfectly. Rich, floral and creamy smooth this blend is medium in terms of its strength and nicotine content.

Gawith Hoggarth No.7 Broken Flake Loose generally does not require any additional drying and you can prepare this broken 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
Which ever 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 No.7 Broken Flake Loose will be despatched in the manufacturers original packaging.
