Tin Description: Seattle Evening ? is a mild to medium well balanced English style blend with deep but gentle smoky nuances, a bit of spice and a touch of sweetness. This Seattle Pipe Club Blend was created by our own blending guru, Joe Lankford, for the Club?s 2008 annual dinner and is now being blended for us by the folks at McClelland and available through our friends at It was so good that there was none left at the end of the night ? the members could not resist taking all of the remaining ?samples? for their home stashes. It?s another favorite of the Club?s members who want a more mild smoke that is still a wonderfully rich, expressive and flavorful.

The Seattle Pipe Clubís Seattle Evening blend is not only a wonderful pipe tobacco which is in a class all itís own, but it is also a great way of conjuring up a little bit of Seattle back home.  If you havenít been to Seattle, I highly recommend it. It is a magnificent city with a beautiful modern skyline of glass skyscrapers, a friendly charm, and plenty of fun coffeehouses, good restaurants, and engaging clubs. The snowy peak of Mount Rainier in the distance, the world famous Pike Place Market where they throw salmon like fast balls, and of course the iconic Space Needle, amongst many other things all give Seattle a unique ambiance and charm. I had a wonderful visit there this past January for the Seattle Pipe Clubís 10th Anniversary. Now, smoking Seattle Evening here in hot, humid, sun-blistering Florida has me fondly recollecting cool, misty downtown Seattle. I am smoking this great tobacco and letting it take me back there.

The tin aroma is smoky and tangy at first, which is the Latakia and Orientals making their presence known. I find it typical that any blend with Latakia, no matter how small or great an amount, usually has the initial aroma dominated by itsí smokiness. In this case, once you get used to the Latakia fragrance, then it falls back and lets the sweetness from the Virginias come through. There are definitely whiffs of fermented fruit here as well.

The tobaccos
in Seattle Evening form an attractive mostly dark blend with strands of black, dark brown and medium browns. The tobacco just has a look to it that exudes richness and fine tobacco. For some reason, it just looks like itís high quality tobacco. The tin bouquet is delicious, the tobacco looks promising, so I am anticipating good things to come.

To the touch,
the tobaccos are mostly soft with just a little bit of firmness to them. The moisture level feels perfect for smoking. The tobacco doesnít crumble or crackle when squeezed, and it doesnít stick together, or feel sticky or wet
