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.

An Adventure in Every Bowl
One of the most unusual and engaging blends that I've encountered in quite a while. The enlarged cut produces wide swaths of flavors that come pounding out of the gate upon lighting. Pronounced spiciness, pepper, and a somewhat peculiar bitterness that is not altogether unpleasant make a powerful appearance, and just when you think it's going to reach cataclysmic proportions, in comes a swath of natural sweetness bringing both balance and refreshment. For the first half of the bowl, this tug-of-war continues with the hearty back-and-forth of an arm wrestling match that has yet to be decided. Finally, the flavors meld together but keep their individual character. This isn't a blend for all-day monotonous puffing, but something to be savored, a complex, unfolding adventure that calls for your thoughtful attention. Prominent in body and strength. Kudos to Seattle Pipe Club for this ballsy, yet distinguished, blend.

Balkan greatness !
Wow ! The nutty burleys with a hint of cocoa mesh well with the buttery creamy orientals (yendigie? ) and the smokey sweet latakias are the lead . The bright Virginias make them shine and the unflavored cavendish adding body with a touch of brown sugar . The red Virginias and perique are in the background but can be detected and add a little spice with the orientals . I think this is becoming my favorite balkan type blend along with Magnum Opus! The burleys i think is what leads this blend to greatness! Well done , please never discontinue this blend , i would be heartbroken!!

Great in a meerschaum and enough N for a desert or after meal smoke.
Great smooth sweet complex blend and it does have more vitamin N than Mississippi River or PP.

SPC Scores Again!
Having sampled Plum Pudding, Yakama Valley, and Puget Sound, I was comfortable trying Potlatch. It exceeded my expectations in flavor and aroma. It packs great, lights quickly, stays lit, and smokes cool. Each puff delivers a different combo of flavors, with each variety working in harmony with the rest. I just ordered the 8 ounce can. I believe it will be the first of many.

If you like burley
Burley notes are way out front in this one. If you like straight burley and want something with more character, try this. Subtle cinnamon. A touch of spices linger around the tongue. The Turkish provides a cool, clean flavoring on the roof of the mouth. Nothing complex going on here. Good mellow smoke.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great 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.

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.
JG of Peoria, AZ
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
AS of huntington, IN
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.
JS of Boise, ID
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!!!
AW of Corsicana, TX
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.
