Gather around we'll tell you a story; a story of a man named Joe, who dreamt a dream of a Virgina blend like no other. Waking up, he wasted not a moment in scribbling down his notes, before that half-awoken haze could pass, and full consciousness could see what he had seen in his dream drifting back to some un-recall-able corner, lost amongst the waking contents of his own cranium. That dream was of Mississippi River, a concoction pressed and rich, of Virginias, Latakia and Louisiana Perique, and perhaps, at some point in its course, the mighty river itself may have whispered, "Blend it and they will come."
Well, all my overboard attempts at myth-making aside, two things are for certain: Joe Lankford did blend it, and they have come. "They" being the reviews, and their testament has been that this mixture is every bit as solid as anything the waking world has ever offered.
This is my favorite .. I bought 2 oz to try it , and now i will buy 100 ton of this tobacco 🍻

I first bought this blend at a brick and motor store in Tacoma, Washington. It made me change the tobacco I smoke in my 20 year old Larson pipes. I love. it. Smoking is an individual taste. But, this is one of the best I have smoked. Just Saying.

This is a really good tobac when you find the right pipe for it. A pot shaped bowl really allows for the subtleties of this tobacco to come through. In the beginning I taste mild English flavors and the lat is barely present. Complex dark chocolate... Read More flavors intertwine with a subtle tang from the perique - Midway thru the bowl the intensity is kicked up a notch making it hard to put down. This is when I feel this tobacco displays it's core of English splendor - always burns down to a fine white ash. Read Less

After a chasing of almost five months, i finally could bought a pair of ounces of this stuff. I have had great expectations on MR. I bought in bulk so i don´t know if it has something to do with the quality of the tobacco (i guess not). Nice aroma... Read More upon opening the pouch; at fist charring light, perique greets you like a punch in your face. Indeed, for my taste this mixture is overwhelming in perique, poor in oriental/turkish, very shy in the virginias and also unnoticeable about the Latakia. So, i am really dissapointed about the very famous MISSISSIPPI RIVER. Wont buy it again... Read Less
