Welcome the newest addition to the Seattle Pipe Club family of pipe tobaccos - Deception Pass. Another great creation from Joe Lankford, SPC's resident blender, Deception Pass is a unique Virginia/Perique blend that includes matured and stoved Virginias, spicy-sweet Perique, some rich Turkish Orientals and a touch of toasted black Cavendish for an extra dimension of flavor.

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!
