Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River

Rich Virginias Pressed Tobacco Spiced with Oriental leaf Latakia, and Perique The source of Mississippi River™ ! The way Joe tells it, it all came to him in a dream. Joe blended for 25 years before coming up with this, his first blend. Everything before was...unsmokable, says Joe. So one night, Joe wakes up from a sound sleep, grabs a pencil by the bedside and scribbles a recipe from his dream. He even dreams tobacco! Morning comes and he uses the notes to create a Virginia blend like no other. Mississippi River is born. The rest is history in a tin. Ask Joe if you don’t believe me. Members beg for this blend. It’s a little embarrassing. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Customer Reviews of “Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River”
What can I add to the already glowing reviews around the internet for this tobacco. Very good, top 5 for me. Get it while you can, cuz it goes fast, and not for no reason.
CS of Yucaipa, CA
Like most new pipe smokers I started with aromatics. After reading a lot about English blends and non aromatics I decided to give Frog Morton on the Bayou a try due to positive reviews online and the fact that my local B&M carried it in stock. Unfortunately I hated it. To my nose it smelled like burnt ketchup and tasted only so so to my taste buds. Discouraged I looked through forum recommendations for something else besides aromatics. I found some reviews on some VaPers and put an order together. As a last minute addition I added 2 oz of Mississippi River bulk due to a YouTube review by DagnerPerformance. The 2 ozs came as one big chunk. It was the last one I tried when my order arrived. It smelled very smokey somewhat like the Frog Morton but with an underlying sweetness that made it much more appealing. Now to the actual taste; This tobacco had everything I wanted. I could definitely taste the Virginia base and sweetness that reminded me of a very light aromatic. I could also taste the spiciness and smokey flavor from the latikia. I loved it. The room note was pleasant. The smoke was very cool with no hint of tongue bite. I have sampled a lot of pipe tobacco in my 2 years since I picked up the hobby. Mississippi River is my absolute favorite blend. I highly recommend it to any new pipe smokers looking to venture into the world of non aromatics for the first time. You will not be disappointed. Hint- order a lot, it always seems to be on back order.

I HAD HEARD ABOUT SPC MISSISSIPPI RIVER TOBACCO FROM PIPE SMOKING FRIEND - I AM A HUGE FAN OF LATAKIA WHICH IS IN THIS BLEND - THIS PRESSED TOBACCO HAS A GREAT ROOM NOTE - LOVE THE BOWL NOSE FLAVOR - THE TASTE AND THE SMOOTHNESS OF THE SMOKE - ALMOST EVERYONE I HAVE TALKED TO WHO HAS SMOKED IT - GAVE IT A 4 OR 5 ON A TOP 5 STAR RATING. I AM SMOKING IT NOW - GOD BLESS AMERICA AND ALL OUR AMERICAN MILITARY WORLD WIDE!
MH of Edmond, OK
Bar none the Best Blend I have ever tried. better order some before I buy it all!
LF of Eldorado, IL
Ok,ok, everyone settle down. YouTube kool aid has this tobacco earning high praises. 1st impression is nice, one big 2oz slab, dark color, sweet aroma. Light it up and it was a bit musty, dried the mouth a bit, and was very one dimensional. Some dusty cocoa powder flavor and really light pepper. That's it. Not sure what the hype about this blend is but that's after smoking right off the truck, I'll give it some time in a jar and try again. I did however like the amount of smoke it produced, big clouds quickly filled my garage leaving it with a pleasant aroma. I guess I expected a lot more, but I'm ok with it. My life has improved since discovering P&C
JA of Greendale, WI
This stuff is a wonderful all day smoke. Once you sit back and relax, you notice just how good it is. I ended up buying a pound bulk yesterday. Today its on backorder. Lucky me!
CS of Grey Eagle, MN
A great smoke with a lot of spice, that's not overbearing, and a proper amount of sweetness to keep coming back for more. Truly a tobacco to be savored for a lifetime.
KB of fridley, MN
What can I say Missisippi River pipe tobacco far most the best smoke Ive had. Best of all no tongue bite like other pipe tobacco. I highly recommend this tobacco for those who hasn't tried it yet get your order in quick cause it sell fast.
IA of Brooklyn, NY
Like most of you, I have heard a lot of hype surrounding this tobacco and let me just say, I can see why. I originally ordered 1 oz. along with 1oz of plum pudding -also from SPC, and both did not disappoint. I currently have an 8 oz of MR and 8 oz of PP coming my way. MR is a fantastic smokey blend. It packs nicely, although a little wet straight out of the bag for my liking. Upon lighting it I immediately get this salty smokey flavor which fills my mouth. MR produces thick rich smoke which leaves me with a creamy taste. My palate is NOT as refined as many people on here (at least not yet!), but I still can pick hints of what taste like a fruity note halfway through the bowl. If you enjoy English blends this I highly recommend this one, I normally only smoke 1 bowl a day however I had to have multiple ones of this. Fantastic! Order it while it is here. -Also try Plum Pudding!
MD of Rutland, MA
I just received my first tin today and couldn't wait to try it out so I immediately packed my pipe. I've been smoking mostly English blends this year so this one caught me off guard at first. Upon lighting I got the cloud of smoke that Virginias are known for but, didn't taste much (remember that I've been smoking a lot of Latakia.) At first I was let down because of all of the wonderful reviews, but as the bowl went on my taste buds re-adjusted and I started to taste this delicious blend. It's deserving of every positive review and will be in every order as long as it's in stock.
JD of Hampton, VA
This is my #2 English blend, behind McClelland FMC.
SW of Tallahassee, FL
I am new to a pipe, I switched from cigarettes. Not to say this in any way taste like cigarettes, but it is wonderful! I have tried at least 20 different pipe tobacco and this one is my favorite. I did notice that it causes massive amounts of build up in the bowl, but until I find a better flavor I'm sticking to this one.
CS of goshen, IN
Really couldn't believe that this tobacco was as good as all of the reviews said it was. At first light I wasn't sure how I felt about it, but once I got into the bowl it was tremendous. Not overpowering spice, but enough to warm the mouth and give a lot of flavor in every puff. Can't wait to order some bulk.
MS of Spruce Pine, NC
It took about 15 to 20 bowls before I started to like this stuff----it went to my top 5 tobaccos now----great smoke with a cup of Joe in the morning
RL of Mesa, AZ
Awesome caramelized sugar taste from the Virginias with just a hint of smokiness in the background from the Latakia. The only bad part is that eventually you reach the bottom of the bowl and you have to face that it's gone...
ND of Morristown, TN
Tin aroma: Absolutely amazing! The virginias really pop out at you with a beautiful scent! The Smoke: Yet again, absolutely amazing. Keeps lit amazingly. Very full of flavor, yet smooth. Room Note: Astounding. Very woodsy scent, like a sweet campfire. Strength: Medium, not strong, but also not mild. The perfect median. Overall, I bought a 2 ounce tin. And then a week later bought 4 ounces in bulk. I am making sure to keep this stocked up no matter what.
PH of Deer Park, NY
Kinda a newbie at pipe smoking but I've been a cigar/tobacco lover for a long time. Not the best at describing the flavors but an almost buttery, nutty, rich, sweet at times....flat out delicious tobacco. I smoke it with my Breakfast coffee and its wonderful! Takes a couple of bowls to reveal itself but when it does its fabulous!
MP of Elizabeth, CO
This is one of my all time favorite blends. I started out with 2 ounces a month ago and ordered half a pound immediately after. Definitely a ritual twice a day smoke for me, and I was missing it as I was being shipped a new supply. The taste is indescribable, but I'll try. It as the normal characteristics of an English blend, but with a tartness kind halfway between lemon and copper.
WE of Fayetteville, NC
I bought this tobacco because of the high amount of reviews and good words about it expecting to not really be impressed. Opening the package I could instantly smell a mild smokey mixture and upon loading the first bowl I realized right away why this tobacco is so popular. The flavor is a mixture of a smokey and sweet taste that goes back and forth which makes me continue to smoke from morning to night and really smells good when lit. I liked it so much that I bought the 8 oz tin right after. Thanks Seattle Pipe Club. This is a really good smoke.
JC of Saint Amant, LA
Ok. I'm new to pipe smoking, just under 6 months. Like most guys I've started with the aromatics, which I love. After hearing the buzz on YouTube about Mississippi River, I thought I'd try it out. I have to say this stuff is smooth and mellow! I really like it as a change up smoke. I've tried the heavier stuff like Dunhill's Early Morning Blend but found it too thick for my tastes. Maybe it will grow on me. I'm still learning. But I don't care what anyone says about aromatics being for neophytes. I smoke what I enjoy, period. This is a great blend. I plan to order it by the bushel.
CB of North Potomac, MD
YES. This stuff is really good. For someone that is only about 1 year of solid smoking under my belt, I feel that this stuff is truly really good. I cannot yet describe what it is, but there is something different about this one. It smokes so nice, stays lit, smooth, tastes great, smells good even while smoking. Honestly this is the kind of tobacco I will share with all my pipe smoking buddies. Great stuff. Will be getting more ASAP.
CS of Roseville, CA
This pipe tobacco is what starts every day for me. If I go more than 2 days without smoking it, I must be sick or dying. Literally, what all pipe tobacco gets judged against by anyone in the know. Sweet, burns cool as ice-no bite EVER. The key to this magnificent tobaccy, is to crumble on a tray and let 'rest' for about ten minutes (that's when u brew the coffee). Go ahead, pack that bowl when the coffee done, its ready. Puff all you like, it wont burn you, its the coolest of the cool. Get some, ya dig?
JN of Oneida,, NY
A truly amazing blend. The entire bowl was full of flavor from start to finish. It had it all..smoky latakia, sweet virginias, the slight spice of the perique and the orientals came out in the back end for me. Very smooth and enjoyable. Two thumbs up!
AC of Raymondville, TX
I loved it. I really thought it was going to be a latakia bomb, or something from the depths of a swamp. From everything I was seeing on youtube from the pipe presenters there, this was THE go-to smoke of 2013. I now know why it's always sold out. This was smooth and easy to smoke. It's light to medium english flavor could easily be an everyday smoke. It's a sweet almost cocoa smoke flavor and a little bit of spicyness. I would highly recommend this blend to anybody who enjoys a pipe.
BD of Prairie du Sac, WI
This is by far my favorite tobacco I have ever smoked. The flavors are so perfectly blended. The Virginias are sweet, and the Latakia is subtle but still there in the perfect amount. I have never smoked anything as unique or as fulfilling as this tobacco. I'll buy it regularly for as long as it's available!
SS of Cincinnati, OH
Well I must say that this is my go to favorite, only been a piper for about 2 years and have a craving for this all the time, just ran out and I am waiting for more from the mail man...would love to order a 1lb size can of it. My 2nd pipe that I just got has been dedicated only to this blend.Very very good!!!
EJ of Queen Creek, AZ
Good stuff, man. Could smoke this all day.
MA of Brookhaven, NY
I'm new to pipe smoking, and have become a huge fan of this blend. Great taste, great smell and does especially not give any tongue bite. I will always have Mississippi River in my rotation .
AA of Brooklyn, NY
I tried it and liked it. Been backordered for a long time. They must be having to wait to harvest more tobacco leaves.
TF of Godfrey, IL
I'm just finishing my first, ever, bowl of MS River. It is absolutely outstanding. I've smoked quite a few well known Virginia's, this is the best to date. I will be buying more.
RG of Tupelo, MS
Mississippi River is so right that its hard to improve on what is alresdy been said about it. Smokes smooth in a meer or briar and is one I will always have in my rotation. Hip Hip Hurray!
RL of Damascus, PA
Every piper out there seemed to rave about this stuff so I had to give it a try. I must say..nicely done! The flavor got better as I smoked it and it burns fairly slow. Very smokey smell, great flavor, will be buying more!
JW of Ringgold, GA
Awesome!!! Loved it! Highly recommended
JK of West Plains, MO
Well I wanted to say it was so bad that I threw it in the trash !!!!!! just so I could buy it all for my self !! Wow first puff and I was hook YOU HAVE GOT TO TRY IT !!! I wished I had ordered way more
JH of Lonoke, AR
Until this, my favorite was Byzantium. While this is quite different, I was blown away. My first "WOW!" experience with a pipe, after four years of trying different things. I lean towards English over the aromatic blends. This blend was pleasantly thick, with a sweet middle and a peppery accent. It retained its taste through the bowl. It was moist enough to smoke slow, but not so moist it needed to be relit. It caught well… all in all, a nice, firmly pleasant experience.
