Plum Pudding?

Post by Fainn » Wed Nov 18, 2020 5:16 pm

My favorite tobacco is Ten Russians. I keep hearing about Plum Pudding, but the price makes me wonder if its worth it. Is there anything special about it or just the reputation?

Plum Pudding from Seattle Pipe Club?

Tobacco Reviews
Plum Pudding is an English Balkan blend like no other. Rare tobaccos, crafted and pressed carefully together. Many pipe smokers say it is their perfect tobacco. Nirvana, said one reviewer. Master Blender Joe Lankford created this treasure for the Seattle Pipe Club our perfect tobacco. Delicious, smoky, spicy and positively addictive. Truly an exquisite tobacco to share. Enjoy this original cake of six rare ingredients: Latakia joins with Turkish Orientals, Virginias, cavendish and perique. Crafting the most sought after small batch blends in America since 2007
Pipes & Cigars


I'm not a big latakia smoker. I enjoy blends of all-the-types, although it gets kinda hard to tell them apart.



Here is Tobacco Reviews on Ten Russians:

Capt. Earle's Ten Russians is a true delight for lovers of latakia. Rich and full bodied, Ten Russians is pressed to deliver a perfectly balanced blend to the true aficionado of full English tobaccos.

It's pricy, but I'm tempted to try it after reading those reviews.

i tried it and liked it but it's been a while since I smoked it. I like Latakia though because it tastes leathery to me. I think Pirate Kake just as good and I like Billy Budd best of all. Different tastes and different blends but that's what I personally like. I'm really bad at tobacco reviews.

I went through a couple tins of SPCPP several years ago, before McClelland went out of business, and reportedly blended and tinned the SPC blends. I've never confirmed this, and I also haven't confirmed the written rumors that Sutliff now blends and tins these. I suspect it's not the same smoke that it once was, so consider that when reading older reviews.

I smoke it daily.
It’s a good smoke. It’s pricey, but I buy an 8 oz can whenever it’s on sale.
I’m sure there are other blends that are similar or better but I’ve not found one yet.

Buy a small tin and try it. It’s the only way you’ll know.

If you like Latakia you will like it. It’s very good.
