You Won't Regret This One
Fantastic smoke! I just bought this on a lark because I had a P&C coupon and I liked the name. Very glad that I did, already looking to get the bigger tin.

Great "Go To Tobacco
I'm a pipe smoking newbie. Love the intense flavor of this one. Excellent smoke from start to finish. I can't stop smoking this one and I've now found my go to tobacco.

Great Blend!!
I wrote a review for this blend previously, and for some reason it didn't appear. That is a good thing! I love this blend! I said in the previous review that I normally don't like English Blends that have been mixed with Black Cavendish. This blend is making me a believer. I am now smoking a bowl or two (or three) daily. I will definitely be adding to the hoard. Try it for a change of pace.

Excellent Blend!!!!!
I was very pleasantly surprised with this blend. I am sometimes leery when blenders add Cavendish to what would normally be an English Blend. However, not a problem for this particular blend. The blend is harmonious, yet you can still get a distinct note from each element of the blend. The taste is full (meaning there is always something to be tasted or experienced) and the strength is medium. Surprisingly, it also was a fairly cool, dry smoke. There was very little moisture in the bowl and I smoked it out of a Peterson 313 Standard that was just shy of being over-packed. Still smoked with no problem. This is definitely a blend that will be apart of my regular rotation.

Cool, Flavorful Fig; Great Sweet and Spice Blend
At first open there are some large fig notes and earthy background on the nose. It was a little moist with the first pack but that worked out over time. This is a smooth, cool, flavorful smoke which developed throughout the bowl and pronounced by my pot shaped pipe. The first third of the bowl had a dank almost musty flavor like the Pacific Northwest itself. The fig on the nose developed in the middle of the bowl as the smoke was medium to full. The perique spice faded to a sweet finish as the bowl ended. This is my favorite SPC blend!

I have found that SPC does an exceptional job with their tobaccos and I am not wrong on this blend.

SPC Deception Pass
Upon opening the tin I was greeted with a strong note of bitter sweet dark chocolate with a slight vinegary note. After letting it dry for a half an hour the flavors really come through. Extremely enjoyable smoke. Accompanied by a glass of red wine the flavors really intensify. Highly recommend.

Deception Pass Left Me Wanting More...
This tobacco has a nice tin note. Packing is easy and it lites easily. What was missing in this tobacco for me was rich flavor. I will be letting the second tin I have of it cellar for a few years and try it again.

Seattle Pipe Club Deception Pass
First tobacco I ever tried, was initially given to me by my son. Smoked numerous other tobaccos since and Deception Pass is still my favorite.

Excellent Selection of Blends, Reasonable Prices, and Reliable Shipping
I don't order from anywhere else for my pipe tobacco as the market in stores has become saturated with aromatics. Pipe and Cigars always has a great variety of blends that suit my taste with reliable shipping, and Seattle Pipe Club is one of the best providers.

You MUST try this one
First off, you can't go wrong with ANY of the Seattle Club pipe mixtures. I bought 2 ounces of each and was particularly impressed with this one. It was mild, smoked slow and cool and seemed to change (in a good way) throughout the bowl. I quickly went through the 2 ounces and bought 8 ounces, actually 2 8 ounce tins and put them into one of my prized 16 oz apothecary jars. I say "prized" because "only my favorite tobacco" makes it to its own 16oz jar! I know I can fill my pipe with any of them, any time and as many times as I like and I will have a pleasant, pleasing experience. As a 50+ year pipe smoker I'd rate this a 5+ out of 5 and recommend it HIGHLY.

Deception Pass keeps you guessing.
At first I've not bought this bacco however I tried it as an ounce sample. I later bought a tin because I loved it so much. It gave me the Virginia flavors I love plus more... I say more because the blend changes through out the bowl in a good way. It's always Virginia with added nuances that pop up to say hello but not override the experience. Do yourself a favor and at least try 2oz of this blend.

Really enjoyed this and then bought some more.
I originally purchased this tin because it was the contest tobacco for the CPCC 2015 slow smoke contest and I wanted to try it out. Once I received it I immediately opened it and was pleasantly surprised by the note of Perique... POW! I filled a clay pipe full and began, WOW this tobacco is great. I also tried it in a cob and my briar and it smoked great in all three. I think it does need a bit of drying time right out of the tin but other than that what a great smoke. I did smoke it slow due to practicing for the contest and it gave me no bite and with drying time no re-lite. Since the first tin I have order 2 more for the cellar I can't wait to see how these age. Recommend if you like Perique.

While there's nothing wrong here, it doesn't mean that there's anything right. This just wasn't my cup of tea and this is the only SPC blend I can that about. It's decent, but in a world of exciting blends there's no reason to smoke something that doesn't excite you.

First rate blend. No bite and decent volume of smoke. This is definitely an all day blend.

My favorite New Blend this year
This is a great all day blend. You may not get it your first few bowls, but this is a complex, yet smooth blend. Tangy, sweet and with a little spice. It's like a potato chip, one bowl begs another.

Fantastic blend!!
I was not a big fan of VaPers/Virginias, non-English blends, etc. until I tried this blend. Now I am trying many different types of tobaccos and loving them. Another winner from the Northwest. Highly recommended!

great blend
a tasty everyday smoke. very smooth, yet full flavor. good any time of day. in a class by itself, like mac baren's acadian perique, but different. no candy store or waffle joint taste here, just good quality tobacco taste.
Customer Testimonials
This one is quite nice! Girl friend (significant other) friendly. The flavor is mellow, not too spicy, with a pleasant aroma that makes is suitable for smoking indoors (I don't usually smoke inside, as the after-smoke is not necessarily to everyone's taste, though I don't know why). I'm at a stage in m pipe smoking where I'm trying to give all the major tobacco types their fair share, so I consider myself still much in the learning stages. If you're looking for a potent latakia element, this is not the one. Perique, maybe not so, either. But I cant see how anyone would say no to this one. Enjoy!!
A really great VaPer, and my favorite to date. If smoked even moderately slowly, it will not bite, and burns exceptionally well.
Ribbon cut, easy to pack, on the drier side but just about right for me...Smoked my first bowl and said "Meh...". Smoked a second bowl and all of a sudden I am reaching for this stuff. Nice sweetness from the Virginia's on initial light and it settles into a wonderful mixture of orientals and perique that are married perfectly throughout...Not overwhelming for those of you who shy away from the orientals...just a perfect balance. This is unlike any other tobacco I have smoked and it has really "grown" on me. Don't give up on this one after just one bowl, give it time. Yet another quality tobacco blend from Seattle. We've come to have high expectations of them and this does not disappoint.
Deception Pass is a truly wonderful smoke and has risen to a high place in my repertoire. I use to be a "English only" smoker but have come to enjoy VaPers as much or more of late. Deception Pass has all the tangy sweetness, complexity and spiceness I look for in my smoke. Admittedly, for my palette, it is a tad more spicy than I prefer for an everyday smoke. But when I have a yen for something a little richer and deeper my first reach is to Deceptoion Pass. Highly recommended.
First off, the only reason I tried this tobacco is because it was a Joe Lankford creation.. I am a huge fan of Mississippi River as well as Plum Pudding.. They are in my constant rotation to say the least.. I love these magical blends, and order them by the pound, and without them, my pipe smoking hobby would be at a loss I don't want to imagine.. I have tried several Vaper blends, and they have had great qualities, but none of them have compared to Deception Pass.. It has all the tastes, and qualities of a Vaper blend, but so much more.. It has no burn, and no bite, and has a wonderful "all day" flavor to it that is down right addictive.. It takes a few bowls to really appreciate this blend, but when you do, you will def repack, and reorder.. I can only hope it becomes available in bulk... 5 out of 5 stars... I want to say thank you to Joe Lankford, as well as Pipes And Cigars for offering this blend!! Loving this stuff!!!
To start I am a VaPerOr fan. The first bowl of this tobacco was pleasant but nothing spectacular, I have found myself going back to the tin almost every other bowl. It's not easy to compare to others of the Variety but to me seems an all day blend the variety of orientals tasted new to me not the sour that I'm use to from the CD blending house heavy hitters like GLP Cairo or embarcadaro. Well I'm certainly happy to find this and plan on cellaring a tin or five.
Just received my order last night. Very impressed with this blend. Very balanced, and I love the ribbon cut. Smokes well without a lot of preparation.
With this blend Joe has satisfied all vapor lovers!!! Smoked it right out the tin as soon as it came and it's lovely. This is an every moment of the day blend! Joe should have named this blend vapors dream because by far the best Vp blend I've ever smoked!
Tried this During the SPC Annual Dinner. What a treat! DP is a ribbon cut tobacco and is easy to pack and light. Initial aroma is rich with a hit of spice and vinegar. To me the perique is there and peppery but not overpowering. Seems very balanced. Also, the orientals are there, more in the beginning to play with your senses. The bowl then settles down into a near perfect balance of fine virginias and perique. Dwindles down to a nice ash. Joe REALLY outdid himself on this tobacco. Order it for sure. Don't forget to save up for Pike Place and Potlatch, SPC's other two blends coming out this year on P&C!
