About Seattle Pipe Club Tobaccos
Seattle Pipe Club Tobaccos, created by club member Joe Lankford, are unique blends, with a leaning toward bold flavour. Plum Pudding is a rich and smoky English-style, Mississippi River is an unusually robust Virginia-heavy blend, and Seattle Evening is redolent with fragrant Orientals. Since those initial three were released, the Seattle Pipe Club has introduced a nice assortment of blends in just about every genre, so no matter what kind of pipe tobacco you prefer, there’s something here for you.
