Peterson Hyde Park = Gawith Hoggarth Rum Flake?

Post by Adam Z » Thu Jan 24, 2019 9:03 am

I cannot recall exactly where I read this, but it's been said that Peterson Hyde Park (which I thoroughly enjoy) is actually blended by Gawith Hoggarth Co. I was perusing the massive list of all the GH blends that SmokingPipes got in stock, and I noticed that Rum Flake was one of the first blends to sell out.

Here's the description of Rum Flake:
A very rich, sweet fully flavored blend. The main feature is the high proportion of naturally sweet sun-cured tobaccos in the blend - over 40%. Only 30% Virginia leaf, with the rest of the blend coming from Burleys and Dark-air cured contribute to a rich, but rewarding smoke. The whole blend is cased in maple sugars to further enhance the natural sweetness of the sun cured leaf and then rounded off with a dash of rum.
This sounds suspiciously familiar to a fan of Hyde Park, the description of which follows:
Peterson's Hyde Park is a traditional English blend of bright and dark fired Virginias, sun-cured Indian and Burley tobaccos. This luxurious smoking experience is achieved by the addition of rum and maple sugars to pressed mahogany tobacco.
I'd order an ounce or two of Rum Flake to be able to compare, but, as mentioned above, it's sold out in bulk and tin. I did sign up to be notified whenever they get it in stock again.

Anybody here have any experience with both blends?

I was wondering the same thing. I got a notification, but they were all sold out by the time I read it.

Unless they just updated their site in the last 2 hours, they've not gotten around to posting whatever stock they might have received.

OR Goose cleaned them out before any GH got posted. :lol:

Well, I just called Jeff and got a 4oz order of Rum Flake coming. Apparently some kind of in-stock email notification system is on the shortlist of new features coming when they overhaul the website soon. I'd have loved to have ordered more from him, but after the kilo I ordered from SmokingPipes yesterday I'm tapped out.

I like Rum Flake. It's flavorful and has a nice strength to it.

I don't know if anyone's still looking, but I just ordered 4 oz of Rum Flake from pipesandcigars dot com. Not my favorite vendor (I don't think they treat their stocks as well as they do at smokingpipes dot com), but they had some.

I phoned in an order of 4oz bulk Rum Flake to Jeff @ 4Noggins last week. He has some GH stuff in stock that isn't posted on the website. I received it yesterday, but I've not smoked any of it yet.
