G. L. Pease: Spark Plug 2oz Pipe Tobacco

Product Number: 003-029-0096

A quality English blend from renowned G.L. Pease, Spark Plug's tin art immediately denotes its inspiration: A Union Jack comprises the foreground in recognition of the English blends that dominated British pipesmoking preferences in the early 20th century. These original mixtures offered a distinctly spicy and smoky component though the use of Latakia and Oriental tobaccos overtop a Virginia base. As such, Spark Plug is an immediately Latakia-forward blend that Pease describes as

"Rich, dark, oily, mysterious, full of fascinatingly complex, smoky, and leathery aromas, just like all those little British cars from my past that inspired both the blend and the name. Latakiaphiles are going to love it."

Pressed into a dense plug, Spark Plug can be sliced thick or thin, based on individual preference, and it presents a deep, powerful flavor profile, marked by a campfire's smokiness and aged leather from the Cyprian Latakia, married to rich and spicy Orientals from Greece and Turkey, and sweet Bright and Red Virginias. Like the classic cars that inspired its invention, Spark Plug is charming and satisfying. Take it for a test drive before setting aside to age or enjoy it at full throttle straight out of the tin.

If you rate this blend anything less than 5 stars you are only admitting your lack of a palate. Perhaps just inexperienced. This is one of the most finely tuned blends on the market. Preparation is the labor of love. You can't rush perfection. I foun... Read More

This tobacco belongs in a Auto garage..Tastes like tar, my Tin had a number of thick stems, needs to be shredded to be smoked. Nothing to like with this blend so I gave away this tin.

体风味虽然是我喜欢的烤面包香味,但是过于平淡,缺少变化
September 05, 2022
Product: G. L. Pease Spark Plug 2oz
斗草开盒能闻见一股酸酸的味道,蛋糕砖的装填方式让抽斗前多了一个切碎的动作,个人建议将烟草适当的醒干一些在装填,燃烧会顺利很多。而且烟草的干湿度会直接影响整个烟草的风味走向。 点火后依然是浓郁的L草带来的皮革味道,然后变成O草带来的烤面包风味,烟气过鼻无刺激,烟气量也不算多,劲道也没有其他斗友说的那么大。 到了中段始终是烤面包的味道,和翻车的那一斗相比少了很多甜味,始终是比较平淡的烤面包味道,会夹杂 这一点点果脯的酸味,没有多少甜味。 到了尾段,整个风味有了一点点变化,慢慢的出现成熟水果的风味,不... Read More

Add it to your favorites. It’s fantastic for me it’s very well balanced and perfect amount of Latikia. Only issue is it’s a bit moist so I let it set for a bit before wearing out a lighter lol.

First tin of this blend that made my mouth water. Wish it came in a bigger tin maybe 8 oz. A friend tried some and bought the whole tin off me. So that’s saying something.
Excellent blending.

Take the deep smoky richness of Gaslight, add fragrant high quality orientals balanced perfectly ala Westminster. Finally, always in the background, add the syrupy sweetness of Quiet Nights. Greg is a master of his craft.
Excellent !

Mr. Pease was right when he said "Latakiaphiles will love it.". I'm one and I love it. Coarsely rubbed the flavors mingle on each draw, giving you a taste of the blender's magic touch. Get some now or kick yourself later.

Yes indeed, this is a nice medium English blend, just a notch down from Gaslight, wonderful, a great all day smoke, or a mild break from the strong blends. Greg Pease is a genius, another great blend.
