Samuel Gawith Balkan Flake Pipe Tobacco

Quick Overview

On the beginning I would like to say, that this is my first tobacco with Latakia and it remains my favorite blend to this day.

When we open the tin, our eyes can see very dark pressed tobacco. As producer quote, Balkan Flake is a blend of 70% Virginia and 30% Latakia. In the smell we can feel distinct smoky scent of Latakia and something like a plum confiture. This tobacco is also hand messing.

Smoking of Balkan Flake remind me a peculiar dance of professional dancer and and novice. This is dance of discordant partners - they don't dance in harmony way, but they try very hard. Of course it doesn't mean that this is bad tobacco. Balkan is also for a reason my favorite mushrooming blend. In the taste except for precious old leather, I can feel foresty, coniferous flavour. It remind me a calm, pine forest with a lot of resin. This blend also is filling the empty blank, after Balkan Sobranie withdrawn from Polish tobacco marketplace.

Summing up it's a delicious blend worth of buying and smoking and I can recommend this blend for all pipe smokers.

  • Review of Samuel Gawith Balkan Flake


Since 1792, Samuel Gawith have been producing Traditional English tobacco in Kendal. Using original recipes and sourcing leaf from tobacco growers the world over, we are pleased to offer their full range of English Mixtures and Flakes.

A beautifully formed dark flake of pressed Virginias and a generous helping of latakia. Relax and enjoy this medium strength tobacco with its "smokey" flavour and cool, smooth characteristics.  Fans of Latakia who are looking for something different should try a tin of Balkan Flake from Samuel Gawith. Unlike the Balkans you’re probably familiar with, this blend is primarily Virginia with about 30% Latakia. The result is a fairly mild English that puts the Latakia flavor forward.
