Lakeland

What is the most Lakelandy blend out there? Also what are some good working class British blends (not necessarily “English” blends with Latakia.) I’ve heard that St Bruno and Erinmore might be in the same vein but haven’t tried them yet. They are both on my list for the next order I place.

Do try St. Bruno. The ready rubbed is a bit more flavored than the flake, but whatever is most easily available to you will suit. That's a great middle class British smoke.

Erinmore Flake has been Wosbalded. The old one was a force to be reckoned with, sweet and strong at the same time. The new one is modernized and more than a little passive aggressive. No bite. Lacks courage in its convictions. Keep an eye out for the old rectangular tin.

Otherwise, go through the Gawith lines. There is no best. Just tastiest for you. I'm a fan of several, and if you PM your address, I'll help.

When I think Lakeland I think Ennerdale Flake. You get some strength, lots of Lakelandy scent, a good cut of flake, excellent quality leaf, and an easy pack and burn.

This is the quintessential Lakeland.

The Great Rusty once told me that Ennerdale screams Lake District.

I just finished a packet of Ennerdale that I purchased several years ago. It had lost much of his fragrance, and behaved like a normal virginia flake.

If you don't enjoy it at full strength, you can leave it open for a few days to serve as a room air freshener.

The only one I ever liked was Bob's Chocolate flake.

Yep. And the Play-dough tin scent is quite unique.

It will ghost your pipe.

Bob's Chocolate Flake is mighty yummy too.

Don't be put off by the Play-Doh reference. It's quite satisfying. Strange, but satisfying. Really.

Interesting fact.

I met the director of Gawith Hoggarth on 3rd Sept at an excise industry meeting (including baccy track and trace nonsense). I said you Yanks are massive groupies, which he knew, of course and offered me a chance to visit. He told me they'd bought Sam Gawith, which I didn't know. Worship me, oh you might.

Bob's Chocolate Flake is also tasty and worth a try.

That is a cool story. I’m December I’ll be buying a Peterson system and a ton of Lakeland stuff. I’m going to stink up the basement bad to get my wife in the Christmas spirit.
