A strong, chocolate-spicy Malawi-Burley is the focus of Dockworker Flake. This is complemented by spicy Oriental and Virginia from Zambia, India and the Philippines. The result is a sweet and spicy Blend with a wonderful Burley/Oriental note. This unusual blend convinces with a very complex and beautifully balanced taste. A strong to powerful Flake for followers of incisive, original tobaccos. No added flavor!
The United Passion Dockworker Flake offers a rustic look in the tin. The gray- and black-brown marbled Flakes, with small lighter inclusions, are irregularly shaped, cut short and are unheeding stacked in the round tin. The moist-sourish plum-scent is deceptive, because the Flakes are not too moist, but well-conditioned. However, since the tobacco is very brittle, the Flakes can be removed individually only with care.
The United Passion Dockworker Flake can be folded with a bit of attention and folded into the pipe. Its crumbly consistency also makes it very suitable for grinding it into a Ready Rubbed to your own liking.
As usual with Flakes, it is advisable to extinguish the first embers. Then smooth the surface gently with the tamper to give evenly fire again. Then burn the United Passion Dockworker Flake quite evenly until the end of the filling.
The United Passion Dockworker Flake almost overwhelms with a lush smoke. First, the aromas are tart-spicy, smoky and resinous in order to reveal sweetish toasted bread notes in the further course of the smoke - especially on gentle puffs. This natural sweetness reduces the strength of the Flake and enriches the smoke with a diversified element. Since the strength of the United Passion Dockworker Flake is already protected against heavy smoking, you do not need to worry about gargling or tongue-burning. If the tobacco goes out in between, it brings no disadvantage in taste, if you give fire again. The remaining medium gray ash is powdery, mixed with a few unburned crumbs. Together with the almost non-occurring condensate, the cleaning effort is therefore low.
The redolence of the United Passion Dockworker Flake is natural and also the included Oriental is to smell, so that the tobacco is more suitable for smoking-society or the fresh air.
The United Passion Dockworker Flake is a rustic flake in its very dark brown tones. Even in the pipe, the tobacco provides flavors that would make joy to the eponymous dockworker. The powerful Flake with its smoky flavor is easy to smoke in the fresh (sea-) air, whereby the maritime seeming tart, resinous, tarry notes are softened by a pleasant natural sweetness, so that the tobacco is not too overwhelming. Nevertheless, the Flake could be a bit overwhelming for the beginner and even the more experienced smoker should not necessarily enjoy the United Passion Dockworker Flake on an empty stomach. After a rich meal or at the end of the day, the United Passion Dockworker Flake will bring you to a successful conclusion.
