Seattle Pipe Club: Mississippi River Rum Barrel Aged 2oz

Product Number: 003-606-0027

A pipe tobacco developed by the inimitable Joe Lankford of the Seattle Pipe Club, Mississippi River Rum Barrel Aged is a version of SPC's popular Mississippi River blend. It's an English mixture of Latakia, Virginias, Perique, and Oriental tobaccos, but in this Rum Barrel Aged version, it's blended and then packed into oak rum barrels to age and for the tobacco to acquire the nuanced flavor of oak and rum — flavors well known and appreciated by pipesmokers. It's then pressed into cakes to help marry the flavors, contributing to the character of the fine English blend, before being cut into a crumble cake and packaged into two-ounce tins for flavorful convenience, each tin included with an rum barrel stave to preserve the flavors.

I wonder where the idea for a barrel stave cube came from? ;-) The Rum does transfer nicely to the tobacco, cool smoking, with spice from the Orientals and smokiness from the Latakia. I wonder with age if more Rum and the wood note from the cube wil... Read More

I hope this doesn’t turn out like my other favorite tobaccos; sold out. I bought a tin to try and had one bowl and knew I found my happy place. It’s amazing tin note could be smelled at a few paces away. I rubbed it out and let it dry a bit because t... Read More

Wow! This was a pleasant surprise. Your going to want to rub this out and let it set a spell as it is very moist. Tin note is pleasant, with the rum up front but not overwhelming. Upon first light the sweetness of the Virginia and the rum are up fron... Read More

What an interesting blend! As someone who abhors aromatics, I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. The rum taste is definitely in the foreground, but in interacts very well with the Latakia and Orientals. Give it a try.
Outstanding.

Agreed, it’s not your typical aromatic. The rum is excellent, it’s not faked, blends well with the tobacco and it does taste as good as it smells. The problem, it does lose all flavour at mid bowl and I don’t particularly enjoy smoking it all the way... Read More

Product: Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River Rum Barrel Aged 2oz
Well, they aren’t fooling around with the rum. Which certainly isn’t a bad thing. Very light on the lat, as to be expected, feels and tastes much more like a VaOrPer with rum, which I like. A lot. Not sure the premium pricing is warranted, but that’s... Read More
English with Rum, not a traditional Aromatic

Product: Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River Rum Barrel Aged 2oz
Man is this good!! Funny thing is I wasn't a huge fan of Mississippi River originally. It got much better with age, but for my taste, it was still a mid range English. Add this to a rum barrel and something special happens. I know this is categorized... Read More
