While it isn't as strong as some other blend types, Virginia/Perique style tobaccos are preferred by smokers who love flavor, who love age, and who just love taking care of their pipe and tobacco collection. Deception Pass is a mixture that was designed and blended by lovers of tobacco just like you. A precise combination of Perique and Virginia, with a bit of Turkish tobacco, is what makes this blend so special.

This is a good tobacco pretty much right out of the tin, however, I tasted a rather strong spiciness in the first few bowls and it even made my lips sting a little. After the first few bowls, however, it seems to settle down and was very pleasant.
I really love the rich and dark sweetness that this tobacco brings to the table. I actually like this more then Mississippi river. I wish I had tried this sooner. I will be buying alot more soon. The tobacco is good to smoke right from the tin. It isn't too wet or dry. I didn't give this tobacco one minute of drying time and it smoked down without a relight.
