Seattle Pipe Club - Potlatch


Seattle Pipe Club's Potlatch, created by SPC's master blender, Joe Lankford, is a stroke of genius. This distinctly different approach to the American-English genre will appeal to a broad range of pipe enthusiasts. The ingredients include nutty-sweet toasted black Cavendish, specially selected Burley, smoky Cyprian Latakia, zesty golden Virginias, fragrant Turkish and Acadian Perique. Blends of this type were incredibly popular at the peak of pipe smoking's popularity, and are making a comeback among American pipesters. SPC Potlatch will transport you back in time. If you haven't tried this amazingly complex blend yet, you're missing out.

Great evening tobacco
I'm usually a fan of sweeter aromatics, but this is quite enjoyable. Great tobacco for the evenings. Very calming with great flavor.

Potlatch
It's an all day tobacco for me. It has a mild flavour and very enjoyable. I'll be getting more when I need to.

An excellent potpourri of flavour.
An English blend with some zing from the added burley, definitely made it into my rotation for 2019.

A winner in taste and aroma
Great job blending all those different tobaccos. It's one of my favorites already.

Would buy again, but...
This is a good English style blend and I do like it. Normally I would give it five stars based on aroma and taste. As compared to my other favorite English blends, however, it tends to smoke a little hot. I tried it in several pipes and found the same result. Certainly good, but not for steady smoking, for me anyway.

A Blend Beyond Belief
I began pipe smoking in 1971 without indulging in cigarettes. For a number of years, I additionally explored cigars. Now I only savor pipe tobacco. For most of these 47 years, I’ve smoked Troost and Russ’s Match of this exquisite Cavendish. Occasionally, I’ve ventured into a full Latikia: however, Potlatch has bowled me over completely! After reading the history of the Seattle Pipe Club (SPC) and listening to the sage advice of Sal at Pipes and Cigars, I bought the 8 ounce can. Am I glad that I did! The complexity of this 7 tobacco blend will truly astonish you because of the deeply rich taste. Joe Lankford at SPC is an absolute genius for creating this sweet, smoky, musty, and tangy blend. Potlatch might even surpass Troost Match as my first choice. Do yourself a favor: BUY THIS BLEND!!!

Splendid Surprise!
I got it on a splurge to get free shipping and it has become one of my favorite smokes. It is harsher than some but it makes up for it with a nice dazzle of flavor. I recommend trying this complex blend.

smells great!
The aroma when you open the can is great. The taste is not so full. Similar in strength to Captain Black—white.

Good all-day smoke.
I was introduced to SPC tobaccos a short while ago but I'm am a dedicated Dunhill fan, so that has been my go to...until now. With the impending Dunhill closure of their pipe tobacco line in the US I've had to switch gears, and it looks like SPC is the lucky winner! Potlatch is a good replacement (IMHO) for My Mixture 965. While the flavor profile is sweeter the cut burns evenly, the taste is consistent, and it burns evenly throughout the bowl. It's strong enough to satisfy without becoming overpowering and it's a welcome addition to my daily rotation.

I'm newer to pipe tobacco,
I'm newer to pipe tobacco, I used to smoke cigarettes and not I found "real" tobacco. I really like this blend. It has a not too sweet, but very rich taste and smell. It has that nice nutty taste and aftertaste. I would recommend it.

Potlatch is potluck.
Haven't smoked a pipe in many years, but have missed it everyday. I worked with a tobacconist for several weeks back then to find a blend that I liked. It was a blend of toasted and natural Cavendish with a touch of Latakia. I didn't much care for Perique then, however as one ages so does ones tastes. The description of Potlatch sounded interesting, so I ordered some. It smells heavenly. I've only smoked a few bowls full so far, but I LIKE IT. I wouldn't smoke it all day. It is a special tobacco blend like fine scotch, meant to be enjoyed when you have time unwind and think pleasant thoughts. Perique is an acquired taste, and I'm getting there.

A lot going on
Let me begin by saying this is by no means a bad blend, nor is it low quality, there’s just a lot going on flavor-wise, and it’s hard to really enjoy any one of the (too) many elements at play. It truly is a potluck of flavors, and I will enjoy the rest of the tin; though I don’t know if I will order any more. Probably a 3.5.

Really like this Smokey, very cool tasting tobac. I get another different taste with every bowl. I wish it could be on sale all the time, or if it was available in larger quantities. Will be ordering more.

Works for me!
I've smoked a pipe almost 70 years...every lmaginable tobacco available...from pure burley to complicated latakia blends. I can't remember another blend that that is as complex as this one.....and still be a delight to smoke! It has not become my "go to" tobacco...but I would best describe it as a "dessert" blend. Something I reach for when a great burley, virginia or heavy latakia blend just don't quite hit the spot.

Good
Not a bad blend on its own, makes a good fraction of a whole with an aromatic. I set about half of my tin aside in a jar to age and jarred the other half for more immediate use.

SPS Potlatch
It's good, but there are other tobaccos with the same basic blends that I like better.

Interesting but I don't care for it. I'm glad I bought it on a special offer.

Great all day smoke
This is a great all day smoke, it has a bit of sweetness from the black Cavendish that is subtle behind the smokey latakia. Bottom line is, it is good.
4 out of 5
Excellent all day smoke
My preference is still SPC Plum Pudding SR but this one is by comparison a bit more bland. There is an initial sweetness or nuttiness that soon dissipates. It is unfortunate that there is burley included as I have always felt it a detractor when attempting an English/Oriental mixture.

Good, Solid and Classic Smoke
I’m giving this four stars due to personal preference. I greatly enjoy its rare combo of leaf and flavors, and if I weren’t such a hardcore Latakia man I’d give it five. Very strange and appealing, full of crazy notes both deep and sweet. Definitely give it a go.

Potlatch.
Just got my first 8oz can. I bought this because some reviews said it was reminiscent of frog morton cellar. Cellar is my all time favorite. This should have been named a cellar match. I love it. It's hard to blend that many tobaccos and get it right but they did. I smoked 4 bowls already and can't make it give me tongue bite. Awesome. Ordering 3 more 8oz cans tomorrow. If you like F.M. Cellar buy it now. You will be happy you did.

Quality, but flat and dull . . . .
I may be to inexperienced to fully appreciate this one, however, it just didn't do it for me. I can tell that it is a quality product and that it smokes well. For me Potlatch is just a bit dull and flat. Now before you think I need a tobacco with hit you over the head flavors I would like to point out that I enjoy smoking HH Vintage Syrian. If you are on the fence about trying this American/English blend I would say do it as regardless of individual taste the quality of the product is there and it will not be money wasted.

Potlatch = Plenty Good
Very nice blend that doesn’t fail to satisfy. Hits the spot when PPSR would be a bit too much for your mood.

This stuff is great!
I ordered a small tin and it just got better and better as I worked my way through it. Esoterica and english blends and have become favorites but I can’t smoke them all the time due to scarcity mostly. Squadron Leader has been in heavy rotation to break things up. I mention these to give you an idea of blends I favor as comparison. I like the nuttiness the burley in this blend and there is a subtle sweetness that I really dig. The ribbon cut is an easy pack and burns to a fine ash. When the tin was finished I missed it and ordered a large tin this time. I like the SPC blends a lot and this may be my favorite offering from them. I’ll keep you posted.

Great smoke
Tried Mississippi River and immediately enjoyed it. So on a whim I tried Potlatch and found it to just as enjoyable.

Wasn't thrilled. Didn't live up to the hype.

Suprisingly delightful
Took my first bowl after dinner on a nice quiet evening in my backyard. I'm new and haven't smoked near as long as most reviewers here but I must say, after trying about a dozen kinds and blends, this one is my favorite so far. I will be reordering for sure.

A true potlatch of flavors!
This is a first-rate blend, somewhat reminiscent of Frog Morton's Cellar--which happens to be my all-time favorite tobacco. It begs the same question when you taste it: "Is this an aromatic or is it English?" The cavendish and smoky Latakia are definitely present as is the burley, which to my mind is what makes this blend unique. The Virginia plays second note to the burley's natural nuttiness in adding a delicate sweetness. As for the Perique, I could barely detect its presence. All in all, a slightly sweet and smokey Anglo-aromatic potlatch of flavors that is almost as pleasing as the Frog. I will most certainly be adding more to my cellar.

Great flavor
It smells just like a campfire but the taste is like nothing else, it's favorite pipe tobacco. In the morning with your coffee it's outstanding. I panic if it's not in stock and I'm about to run out.

Love it.
Reviewed it once, doing it again, because I love it.

High-End Tobacco!
Remarkable blend. THIS is thee one that could get me off of aromatics. Complex taste, cool burning, satisfying. After the first bowl, I ordered more. On my 3rd tin now and like it more and more as I go. A keeper. These S.P.C. blends exude sheer quality. You know as soon as you lite them, you're NOT smoking the cheap stuff. They taste expensive. The Rolls-Royce or pipe tobacco.

Great smoke
I'm relatively new to the pipe world. I really enjoy this a lot. It's a must try.

Potlatch
A complex blend with a lot of things going on and a lot of different types of tobacco in it but as with most Seattle Pipe Club blends it all comes together perfectly.

Hometown Tobacco
I originally ordered this tobacco because of the name since my hometown is named Potlatch. I now intend to order more for the tobacco itself because the mixture is so good. I'm going to try also more of the Seattle Pipe Club offerings because of my experience with Potlatch.

Rich smoky smoke
Great tobacco! My first try at an English blend, which has taken me out of the aromatic market. Nice smokiness to it with a richness/sweetness added from what I believe to be the cavendish. The only reason I don't give it five stars is to differentiate from the Pike Place which I like a bit more.
5 out of 5
A fine, fine blend!
This was my first Seattle Pipe Club tobacco, and it most certainly wont be my last. Excellent! All seven tobaccos work perfectly together. I was worried a bit, thinking it would be too much. I'm not a big burley fan, so I was super surprised when it was the burley that I loved most. It added a nutty layer that put it over the top. Great all day smoke.

Not my cup of tea.
Not bad, but not really my style. Pretty light flavor, kinda spicy.

Nice evening smoke
After smoking aromatics in the afternoon, this more complex and robust blend is a great evening smoke.

Wonderful tobacco. Smokes very easy with a nice aroma and yet still has a nice complexity. My pipe cabinet won't be without it.

It's A Hit !!!
Ordered a 2 oz. tin to try. Before I finished that, I ordered 2 - 8 oz. tins. This is the best I've had in twenty years. Amazing how such a combination of diverse ingredients work so well together. Burns very well and is kind to the tongue. In my older years I've retreated from fire-breathing blends that delivered extra flavor, to blends like Potlatch. Plenty of taste, just more subtle... Only slightly ahead of Barrel # 76 and Bootlegged in my rotation.

Good stuff!
Perhaps there is a little *too* much going on here, but it is an interesting and well-crafted blend. Not sure I want to make it a regular, but I will smoke all I have.

Bravo!!!
Superb blend! Naturally sweet, spicy, fully flavorful, billowy smoke with a wonderful leisurely burn that didn't need a single relight. The ingredients are all there for the entire palette to savor, none hidden. Lovely white/gray ash. The much loved and sought after moderate spicy nic hit, icing on the cake - BRAVO!!!

Bravo P&C
Tobacco came quickly and was excellent. P&C does a great job for its customers. And they have a fabulous website with lots of choices and information.

Great selection and Price!
Pipes and Cigars (while not the only place I shop online for pipes and tobacco) nevertheless is my favorite spot to shop. I say this because of their tobacco inventory. They carry tobacco blends to fit everyone's tastes. Their pipe selection runs from the inexpensive corn cob to the most elegant briars. Plus,they are a great place to do business with online or by phone.

I Wish I had Known This Had Black Cavendish In It
I wasn't aware that the blend contained black Cavendish or I wouldn't have ordered it. For those who like a mild aromatic, I suppose this is a fine blend. I don't like black Cavendish. Anyone contemplating ordering it should be aware that it is an aromatic, not an Oriental or English blend.

Not ready for prime time ( with me, anyway).
I was seeking a sweet virginia/Latikia blend. Potlach had heavy overtones of Latikia and the virginia was lost. I settled for Peter Stokkebye spun flakes and McClellands Latikia , the latter I place in the mix manually (how else).
Customer Testimonials
I'm latched on Pot! Hey you can't say that!! It's Potlatch...Pot ..Latch! OK, I got it and I like it. Very different. A blend that you want to relax with. Multitudes of flavors comin at ya. A celebration in your pipe. You too can be a Pot Head with Potlatch.
Buy the bigger container !! This is wonderful stuff. Can't really put in a category . You can taste all the tobaccos just a wonderful all day smoke
Fairly new or back to smoking pipes but I order Potlatch tin to test a non aromatic to see and I am on my second bowl and find it quite pleasing. However, it does seem quite mild both in taste and aroma. My Primary smoke is Captain Black royal and this will make a great change off.
I have to say, this is a WINNER in my book. I just ordered a 2 oz. tin of this to try it. Half of this 2 oz. tin is gone, I MUST order this by the 8 oz. tins from now on!!!
Smokey and spicy, the Burley'd Cavendish just adds a wonderful accent to this new blend from SPC. I Love the stuff and see it becoming a member of my regular rotation.
