Manufacturer Description:
A full strength, mellow tobacco, comprising a blend of Dark Fired leaf, oven baked and flavoured. For the pipe-smoker who requires strength of flavour.

The 1792 flake lies in relatively thin, dark brown flake slices in the rectangular box. The slices are interspersed with a few medium-brown portions. The smell is strong, somewhat earthy, almost musty. Apart from the strong smell of tobacco is spreading out a subtly sweet scent, that is probably of coumarin from tonquin. The tobacco feels slightly moist and supple.

The 1792 flake can either be rubbed-off between the fingers or stuffed as whole slices. Rubbed-off the velvety, smooth feel confirms and the tobacco dissolves into relatively fine fibers. These can be plugged well as a Mixture. Whole slices, once folded and then buckled, can be just as good stuff into the tobacco chamber, where you should adapt the “plugs” with a loose rotation into the bowl. It must be taken to ensure that tobacco is not stuffed too tightly, since it is after lighting a little expanding. As a final layer some small crumbs of tobacco should be filled to facilitate the kindling.

Light up:
The 1792 flake could be light up well with 1 or 2 flames. It hardly tend to straighten up, but it should soon be pressed lightly with the tamper.

Smoking  properties:
Like most Virginias, mainly flakes, the 1792 should be smoked with caution, so that it is not too hot. Contrary to the strong smell from the tin, spread the tobacco after lighting a nearly soft, slightly sweet taste. This impression is misleading to the smoker but only briefly about the strength of tobacco! The Flake unleashes a powerful dose of nicotine and should not be consumed on an empty stomach. Burning down is good-natured, with less condensate. In the second half the sweet aroma gives way to a slightly bitter, strong tobacco taste. The residual ash is medium to dark grey.

The redolence of the 1792 flake is strong of tobacco with a slightly sweet note. The smell is somewhere between a pleasing cigar and slightly sweet pipe tobacco. But the redolence of the tobacco can not hide his strength. The 1792 flake is therefore not suitable for any occasion, but it fits especially after a hearty dinner to round off the day to leave.

The 1792 flake is a very dark, almost black tobacco, which is cut into relatively thin slices. The strong smell already suggests a certain intensity. A subtly sweet aroma, probably coumarin from tonquin, weakens the smell slightly. The taste is correspondingly strong, with a hint of sweetness. The handling is easy and burning behavior good. However, it must be taken care on the temperature, or the tobacco will be biting. The tobacco fades into a relatively dry medium to dark grey ash residue. It’s recommended for experienced smokers who love a strong variety - but not really suitable for beginners.
