Seattle Pipe Club - Mississippi River Special Reserve

Recently, Joe Lankford was offered some very special, well-aged Virginias. Instead of creating a whole new blend, he thought that he would use them to make a limited edition version of his wildly popular Mississippi River. Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River Special Reserve is everything you love about the original but with very rare flue-cured tobaccos included for richer, smoother flavor.

Gentleman's Delight
A true gentleman's blend that is extremely smooth while holding excellent top and bottom notes. I will undoubtedly purchase again.

What's Great, Made Better...
This is a very yummy blend. Now, some aged Miss River is what originally got me into non aromatics, so it holds a special place for me. But this blend, as the description states, is everything good about the original only better. Now, one caveat... the moisture can create a problem. I've found that if you break your portion right off the block and go, it is very hard to get this stuff to light properly until you get about halfway through it. By then, the burn has dried out the last half and she'll roll away. If you give it some patient drying time beforehand however, to quote other religions, 'you shall be rewarded in heaven!' Haha. The aged Virginias are very apparent if you are used to aged tobaccos... they give a lovely sweet creaminess that only a wise old leaf can lend. I can't wait to see what further cellaring will produce with this one... but in the meantime, it is beautiful enough to stand naked in front of you. Well done Mr. Lankford!! For reference: enjoyed in a wooden stemmed churchwarden

Let down
Wow this was a huge let down for me. Can't really find any particular flavor in this and it smokes musky and scratchy if that makes any sense. Unfortunately I bought the big can too lol.

Wonderful blend.
I had tried Mississippi River in the past and enjoyed it so I decided to give the Special Reserve a go. It turns out to be even smoother, which is hard to believe. A nice, cool, flavorful smoke. As you get to slice it off the cake, the flavor profile changes as it burns down the bowl. I have only tried it in a smaller pipe so far, but look forward trying it in a larger bowl for even more flavor variation. Well worth a try.

Mississippi River Special Reserve is
Mississippi River Special Reserve is a good smoking and tasting tobacco. It is more tangy and a bit stronger as other reviews have mentioned but l personally enjoy the flavor of Mississippi River better.

Great Smoke
I've tried many different tobbacos and blends. There are some I like and some are okay. I think my favorite was Plum Pudding...until I fired up a bowl of this stuff. Full flavor but also smooth. There is something special about the flavor, can't really put my finger on it, but who cares...I like it. It's my go to when I want to have a sophisticated smoke.

Absolute Pleasure to smoke
Some of the best tobacco i have ever smoked only topped by the Seattle Pipe club plum pudding in my opinion.

Incredible blend
This is something really special. The blend of several different tobaccos makes for a truly remarkable tobacco. It is the sweetest and most flavorful Virginia combination I have ever smelled and tasted. It has become my standard and the Mississippi River is excellent also. They are almost interchangeable.

Gotta Be Honest
I’ve got to be honest and say this is a great blend. I’d prefer to say “it sucks, don’t buy it” so I have less trouble getting more. It’s strong and flavorful. Leaves no doubt which pipe you’ve smoked it in. I’ll be getting more to age a bit.

Unreal, in the best way possible
I don't review anything, and I sure haven't developed a fine palate that can pick out all the nuanced flavors, aromas and such. What I can say is that I have tried a lot of tobacco, and this one has "wow'd" not only me, but everyone I have shared it with. Part of me doesn't want to give such a good review so that I can stock up on this stuff before it's gone forever, but the other part of me wants everyone to know how good it is so they can get a chance to experience this blend themselves. Well done, SPC, you guys have knocked this out of the park.

WOW
What a great tobacco quite possibly the best non aromatic blend I have ever smoked and I don't say this lightly as I have been a pipe smoker for over 40 years.

My favorite SPC blend
My new favorite blend. I know everyone loves their Plum Pudding blend, but this one just hits all the spots for me. Smokes down to a fine white ash, no bite at all, excellent taste all the way through the bowl, a mix of flavors that make it lovely and interesting, I even like the aftertaste which I usually don't with most blends even if I like them during the smoke.

Very very good
Mississippi River is my go to. The reserve was suggested by SPC. It is really a cut above.

Miss River is BACK!
Really good tobacco, smokes even better than the original. No bite, just a smooth Pipe. Still my favorite. It was a bit pricey for 4 oz, but well worth it it!

MS River just got better
I didn't think Mississippi River could get any better but it just did! Smooth smoking, great flavor and it couldn't bite you if it tried. What else could you ask for in a great blend?

New and improved!
Haven't cracked the Plum Pudding yet. Mississippi River Reserve seems a bit smoother and tastier to me. All the notes of the original, just more intense.

Mmm, Mississippi River Reserve
I did not think anything could improve Mississippi River but this Special Reserve release did. This is my favorite tobacco blend and number one in my rotation. I had smoked an 8oz tin of the 2014 vintage and loved every bowl. When I saw there was a Special Reserve version available I ordered a 4-oz tin and anxiously awaited its arrival. The tobacco arrived in a pressed cake (much tighter press than the loose krumble kake of the regular verison). I sliced off chunked, broke it apart and let it air-dry for about an hour (it's fairly moist). I like smoking cobs and I have a Missouri Meerschaum Mark Twain that's one of my favorites so I naturally loaded the bowl with Mississippi River. This led to an hour of smoking bliss. The blend of Latakia, Perique and Orientals are so distinct and flavorful that I immediately want a second bowl when the first is gone. The aftertaste is most excellent as well. I highly recommend Mississippi River and if you can get it the Special Reserve edition is even better.
