Seattle Pipe Club Rainier Levant

From P&C's website: Joe Lankford has fond memories of some of the blends that the legendary tobaccos from Drucquer & Sons. One particular favorite of his was Levant Mixture, and he missed it so much that he decided to develop his own tribute to it - introducing Seattle Pipe Club Rainier Levant. This is a rich and fragrant Balkan-style blend made of zesty red Virginia, earthy/spicy Turkish Orientals and plenty of Cyprian latakia.

Apr 04, 2023 Mild None Detected Medium Strong
Good, equilibrated mix of Virginia , Turkish/Oriental, and a pinch of latakia. Very Creamy , Kefir-like smoothness. Turkish is slightly peppery. Virginia is sweet with a tiny bit of grass. The latakia complements the other 2 , without taking a lead. Burns cool (no bite) and consistently, with no relights being necessary. Nicotine level is rather low ; and the smoky aroma tends to linger in the room forever. It may be an all-day smoke for English blends fans.

Reviewed By Date Rating Strength Flavoring Taste Room Note
Jan 21, 2023 Medium None Detected Medium to Full Tolerable
Tin note of sharp sweet smoky. Tobacco is black, dark brown and brown ribbon cut. Moisture content is good. No drying/prep needed. Burns moderate with few relights. The strength is medium and nic is mild. No flavoring detected. Taste is medium to full and fairly consistent, with notes of floral, smoky, wood, sweet, herbal incense, dry peaty vegetation, spicy, orange peel/zest, spices, toasted bread, earth, mildly acidic, buttery, mildly bitter, a mildly sour mild citrus background note, and a peppery retro. Latakia is leading with Oriental/Turkish providing a little more support than the Virginias. Room note is tolerable, and aftertaste is great.
