Description

It all started in Kendal, England in 1792. Thomas Harrison was a successful snuff maker. Jane Harrison Thomas’s daughter, eloped in 1838 to a young man of Kendal, Samuel Gawith. When Mr. Harrison died in 1841, he left the business to his daughter and son-in-law, and over the years Samuel Gawith continued to prosper.

In 1865, Samuel Gawith died prematurely at the age of 48. His eldest son, also called Samuel, was only 22 and his father had wisely left the firm in the hands of three trustees, one of whom was this son. The elder trustee was Henry Hoggarth, a boyhood friend and neighbour in Lowther Street who had founded a Kendal firm of land agents and surveyors.

In 1878, Samuel and his younger brother, John Edward Gawith decided amicably to go their separate ways and so the two Gawith firms came into being. Samuel took over the snuff mill and business at Mealbank, and John stayed on in Lowther Street.

The firm in Lowther Street went through some troubled times but, in 1887, a new partnership was founded between Samuel’s youngest brother, William Henry, and Henry Hoggarth junior, to be known as Gawith Hoggarth Company.

Gawith Hoggarth Company continued to manufacture tobacco products and snuff at the Lowther Street works until 2009, when they moved to new business premises.

And now, in 2015, the two companies will be back together under one roof.

Gawith Hoggarth's Bob's (Chocolate) Flake, a more savoury smoke than you might first expect. A well-presented brown flakes with flecks of gold and seams of black, this tobacco surprisingly contains Latakia.

The aroma of cocoa and molasses, with the scent of Virginia's grassy sweetness welcome you to begin the preparation for what will truly be a treat.

Rubbing this blend is easy and releases more of the rich aroma, encouraging you to fill your pipe.

Tasting Notes

Upon first light, the flavours of milk chocolate are present, creamy sweet and melting in the mouth. This initial taste evolves as you progress through the pipe and starts to become that of a dark chocolate, rich, fruity, nutty and ever so slightly floral.

The balance of tobacco flavours is just right and the chocolate topping allows them through, blending with them.

The tobacco burns long and thoroughly, leaving a dry grey ash.

Strength: 3/5
Aromatic Taste: 2/5

Well well well, isnt this special. I really like this! The flavour is amazing. The rum is very smooth and mild, not overpowering. Lurking somewhere in the background but just enough to alter the flake. Im not a massive aromatic lover but love them when done like this, to complement the tobacco not alter it will be getting more next time.

A very high quality rich brown flake, pouch note is of milk chocolate, rubs out very well, not too moist, perfect, this isnt at all a overly sweet smoke, almost savoury! A definate chocolate taste is there though, the room note is gorgeous, a real treat and a perfect moisture free delight. Lovely stuff 10/10!
