– SPC Mississippi River (Video Review)
I received this tin from a community member and was highly impressed.
General description: TObacco Reviews tells the story of Mississippi River which came to blender Joe Lankford in a dream. Awakened from a sound sleep he grabbed a pencil and scribbled a recipe before the memory faded. The next morning he used those notes to create a Virginia blend like no other. Mississippi River was born. The rest is history in a tin. Enjoy the rich Virginias pressed in cakes with oriental leaf, a pinch of Latakia and Perique. Exceedingly popular with good reason. Crafting the most sought after small batch blends in America since 2007. Smooth, creamy, rich, lightly smoky and appropriately sweet, with hints of dried fruits and a touch of dark chocolate.
A blend of Latakia, Oriental/Turkish, Perique and Virginia.
Taste: Excellent flavor of the initial light and first few puffs. I could immediately taste the Latakia and the Orientals and I got the dark chocolate. The Perique and VA was more subtle, but provided a good balance and some spiciness. Maybe its just me, but I was sure I got some Brandy notes in there.. My favourite Latakia & Orientals remaned prominent throughout the bowl. A medium English blend which might be a nice cross-over for those who would like to try English Blends. No tongue bite which was nice!
Over all the tobacco was just the right moist level and stayed lit. Highly recommended. I actually bought another tin and will try and keep this in my cellar.
