Navy Flake Loose
Samuel Gawith loose Navy Flake tobacco is blended from Virginia and Latakia leaf with a rum topping. What sets this flake apart is the harmonious proportions of the ingredients and the skilful application of the rum to create a wonderfully balanced blend. The sweet notes of the Virginias interplay with the smoky flavours of the Latakia whilst the rum sits in the background producing a rich, pleasant and mellow taste. This blend is mild to medium in strength with a medium taste and nicotine content. Slow burning, cool with no bite and a unique and pleasant room aroma.

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 it is best smoked at a slow pace.
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 will be despatched in the manufacturers original packaging.
