Samuel Gawith 1792 Flake

The Samuel Gawith 1972 Flake is a full-strength, mellow tobacco comprising a blend of dark fired Tanzanian leaf and it is by far Gawith's best selling premium grade flake.

The making process is rather interesting as it starts as 7 lbs. of hand stripped leaf after which it goes through a steaming process prior to being pressed. The cake, having been prepared, is wrapped in a select leaf and packed by hand into a 12 inch square. This cake is pressed and left for a minimum of two hours. Then, the pressed cake is placed into a steam press where it is baked at full heat for two to three hours. The baked cake has then taken on 1792's characteristic rich, dark color. Its hardening occurs during cooling. Once the process of cutting the flake and adding a tonquin flavor is carried out, hand wrapping and packing finalizes 179
