Yes, Seattle Pipe Club Potlatch was smoked and reviewed on Pipe Dummies here. But, I feel that it still needs to be solidified as a written review on our master list, that way it is available to all. Especially, when we all enjoyed it so much. Using seven different tobaccos, Potlatch is yet another small batch blend from Seattle Pipe Club. All of which seem to be highly sought.

Tin/Jar Note: Smokey honey and hay notes. A bright, yet smoky aroma.
Visual: A fairly short, broken ribbon cut of well mixed tobaccos. Lots of dark, light and medium colored tobaccos. Not too wet or dry.
Flavors: A little bit of everything, and in a good way. Nutty Burley, a little kick from Oriental and Perique and touches of sweetness from the Black Cavendish. Not too much of any one, but a great combination.
Smoking Experience: Excellent! Burned well, stayed lit, no gurgles and no bite.
Tobacco Strength: Medium-Full
Room Note: Tolerable-Pleasant
Comparable Tobacco: I have not had another pipe tobacco yet that was this multi faceted.
Conclusion: I am still surprised by the complexity and enjoyment I get from this blend. This would definitely be worth grabbing a couple tins. One to smoke and one to age.
