G. L. Pease: Spark Plug 2oz

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.

Product: G. L. Pease Spark Plug 2oz
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

I'm a big fan of Gaslight...but it's rich like a death by chocolate desert. Not bad but a deep indulgence in a particular direction. Take Gaslight, leave it in the driver's seat but ask a vanilla milkshake to ride shotgun in the passenger seat! ... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Spark Plug 2oz
So far reviews have been split on this blend. I feel that some folks unfamiliar with plug cuts do not understand how to prepare it and smoke it. Traits of a plug cut - usually whole leaves are pressed together (yes this does include stems in most can... Read More

I agree with. Adam. This blend takes a bit of patience and know how. I think this is a rather interesting blend and worth the effort preparing it.
Tar ball taste

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.

Once I can get Spark Plug going properly in my bowl its my favorite tobacco. Its very finicky. Ive found it needs ample dry out time before packing. My last bowl became gummy at bowls bottom and impeded my draw. Staying lit too is an issue. Ive learn... Read More

I carefully prepared a nice natural finish Chacom 871 briar for this blend. Then, I opened the tin and got overwhelmed by the incredible, yet subtle aromas (as soon as the, at first predominant, aroma of latakia diminished). Carefully cutting, and ge... Read More

Product: G. L. Pease Spark Plug 2oz
I love this stuff. It's not at all like Plum Pudding -- at all -- but it reminds me of it in that everything works really nicely in concert. There's a forward but not overwhelming Latakia foundation to everything going on... so you get the smokiness,... Read More

the tin note is powerful. the smoke is creamy and smooth. The orientals come through in this blend and in my opinion, make the sparkle in the show.

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.
It’s Good.

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 jkick yourself later.
Big Surprise

Wow, I normally avoid tobaccos with this much latakia, but Greg is still the master. I really like this one. Great with Scotch and G&T's. A new love.

Just when i thought G.L. Pease had invented all of the flavors known to Latakia blends he comes up with one that has a hint of Cloves, Ceder and Cigar, my opinion. When I opened the tin it had a smell of lots of Latakia and a special spice ready to s... Read More

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.
