Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding Special Reserve

On a shelf in a warehouse, a small quantity of special small-leaf tobaccos were found. When they were discovered, they were offered to Joe lankford, the blender of the Seattle Pipe Club blends. Rather than coming up with a whole new blend, Joe took these rare tobaccos and substituted them for some of the Orientals in his very popular Plum Pudding. Plum Pudding Special Reserve is a limited release version of his bold Balkan cake in a 4 oz. plug, featuring these very rare sun-cured tobaccos. Save on Seattle Pipe Club’s Plum Pudding Special Reserve here and enjoy this one-of-a-kind blend.

Very Satisfying
Not much I can say. I really like it. Peppery and complex. Exactly what I like. Wish I could afford to buy pounds of it.

Bar none my favorite smoke
Absolutely unbelievable! It is the most well behaved delicious pleasant smoke I have ever had in my whole life. I love the original but this is well worth the extra money. Thank you joe lankford!!

Smoked Brisket
I enjoyed this one very much. It smokes smooth and cool, stays lit, and has a great smoky flavor and powerful tin note from the dark fireds that reminds me almost exactly of a good smoked beef brisket. The room note is quite mellow, however, and while I usually have to be in a certain mood to enjoy dark fired blends, I will definitely be jarring this one away to enjoy more often in the future. It's a bit expensive, but it's a premium blend, after all, and well worth it, in my humble opinion. If you enjoy smoky, dark fired blends or just want something to jar away for special occasions, I say this is certainly a good blend to look at.

I actually prefer the regular Plum Pudding ...
Don't get me wrong, this is an outstanding mixture in its own right, but to my palate, the regular Plum Pudding has a much better “finish”. I love the long lingering aftertaste of the regular Plum Pudding, which the Reserve doesn’t seem to quite have (to me anyway). This will probably get better as it ages however, so I’ll just smoke a bowl on special occasions every few months and see. Still a great smoke.

Oriental and...
I opened this after finishing a wonderful tin of Mississippi River special reserve. The crumble cakes look the same, but they are vastly different. This one is very oriental forward. At first I found myself wanting a little more Latakia flavor, but realized that would make it les distinct from M.R S R. Now after half stinks, I am enjoying the heavy oriental supported by a light touch of Latakia. Floral, slightly sweet and a welcome diversion from the heavier Latta English tobaccos i often enjoy. Burns slow and well and is a good change of pace. Like all Seattle Pipe club offerings I've tried, superb quality and an interesting, satisfying smoke.

Excellent tobacco
This is the first non aromatic that I have tried (always went for the heavily cased tobacco). If you have never tried a non aromatic and want an easy bridge over than I highly recommend this. It opened a whole new world of tobacco for me.

Splendid
My go to. I'll switch it up with some Maltese Falcon, Bengal Slices, Sassieni, and occasionally Cross Eyed Cricket to awaken my pallet, but always find myself in blissful deep reverie once I've returned home to Plum Pudding Special Reserve. Nirvana Exemplified.

Satisfied
Tin note fruity, fermented, smoke smell. First time smoking these combinations of tobaccos. Right out of tin was beautiful smoke. Tasted herbs and spices and fermented qualities, not really any strong tongue bite, and what i really enjoyed throughout the whole bowl was the fruity sweetness that would envelope my tongue ever so gently and then disappear and then come back time and time again. Smoked perfectly to bottom of bowl. This is what a smoking experience should be, getting you excited to load the next one and appreciate the finer things in life. Two thumbs up!

Better than the real thing!
Without doubt this is the finest pipe tobacco I have had. There is no topping in this blend, but the flavor of dried fruit and citrus peel are prominent and show what a truly skilled blender with access to top leaf can do. Lights well and stays lit without too much fuss.

Excellent
This is a very high quality excellent tobacco, the richness and just the right amount of latakia make it a great smoking tobacco I actually look forward to it each and every day. Highly recommend

SPC Plum Pudding Special Reserve. Grab it while you can!
So I have had the MS River Spec Reserve and didn’t find it worth the extra coin compared to regular MR so I was skeptical about PP SR, until i tried it. The Plum Pudding SR is one of the most intriguing pipe smokes I have found, without being overdone, which I find in Potlach and a couple other blends out from other retailers. I actually went back and bought 4 more tins of the PP SR, so I could have a total of 1# put into mason jars hoping that time is good for this blend. I just smoked a bowl last evening and it’s easy to sit there in a,aze,rant as you smoke. The special VA and Orientals lift this into its own category that when smoked slowly should give way to a non-biting blend that needs little fuss other than the occasional tamping. The tobacco burned down to a grey ash, which easily poured right out of my pipe. Having it in Kake brownie form gives you option to break it into cubes, crumble or just tear it into flake, and you can decide how to pack the pipe. This is a limited releas and justifies that extra $6-$7 per oz. in my humble opinion.

The Best
This is hands down the best tobacco I have ever smoked. Infinitely better than regular SPC Plum Pudding. This will be my go to tobacco.

Well worth smoking every day
It has a very strong smell,right from the can, some can describe the smells, that the nose picks up the different flavors, but in smoking plum pudding is very pleasing and relaxing, the flavor is like being outside watching snow flakes falling all around you. with know one around and the moment is peace and enjoyment. I can not imagine no one liking this tobacco, but I will keep on smoking it and one day, buy more and enjoy as I do. Thanks to all who make it for all to enjoy.

Didn't think that the original could be topped.
I've just started cellaring my favorite blends. This blend is going to be the backbone of my cellar.

Plumb Pudding Reserve is plumb good!
I had been curious about SPC's Plumb Pudding for a long time, then they put out the 4 oz. reserve tin and that was my nudge to finally order a tin. I am really glad I did because this stuff is so good. So rich and full of flavor and does'nt burn too hot. This is one of my favorite latakia blends in my rotation.

One of my favorites
Was a little shy of the plug at first but it is well worth it. Very smooth burn, no bite and great flavor. Has quickly moved into my weekly rotation.

One bowl wasn't enough !
I usually smoke one bowl in the evening. After cracking my newly purchased tin of plum pudding reserve and smoking the first bowl, I immediately decided to smoke a second. There are many attempts at blends similar to this, but this one is the real deal. So smooth, so flavorful, everything I was expecting. Stop thinking about it and just get some.

Thank goodness it's back in stock. life would not be the same.
a must try for any latakia lover. the flavors are complex and evolving as you smoke. it has a serious backbone of latakia that is very approachable. not over powering. as you get to the end of the bowl something magic happens and all the flavors merge into a cushy sweet pallet feel that delivers flavors of every tobacco in the blend. it is 10 times as good as the regular Plum Pudding. anyone who thinks otherwise has got something wrong with their taste buds. this tobacco is my co-favorite with Penzance. I feel they are on the same level of quality.

Delicious and complex
Big solid cake of deliciousness. Delightful smoke, big and bold with a tiny bit of a spicy note and hint of sweetness. Definitely going to order more.

Nice stuff
I just ordered a tin after being gifted one. This tobacco should age well. Very similar to the original. I found it to be well balanced and rather full for so young a blend. That said, the same results could be obtained with age on the original blend. My older tins of plum pudding are already showing great promise. Will make a great addition to my cellar. I might order more.

So So Good!
Wow...what a fantastic blend. If you like the Seattle Pipe Club Plum Pudding regular blend (and how you wouldn't I am sure I don't know) you will LOVE the Reserve. Complex and continually changing this tobacco burns fantastic and is enjoyable from the first puff to the bottom of the bowl. A terrific all day blend, this may very well be my new favorite (I immediately bought a couple more tins after the first smoke) and I already miss it knowing that soon it will all be gone!

This is NOT the most excellent tobacco you are looking for.
I waited to write a review until I stocked up! If you are a fan of the original SPC Plum Pudding, then do yourself a favor and buy this. A tin to smoke and a few to age. You won't be disappointed!

Do Not Buy This
Do not purchase any of this. It tastes like raw sewage so I am preparing to purchase a large quantity so no one else will have to smoke it. By so doing, pipes and cigars will not have it on Back Order thereby leaving more for me.
