SPC brand pipe tobaccos have been the equivalent of trending in the pipe tobacco community. As soon as the first blends were released in micro batch form in 2007, the club has experienced the snowball effect of popularity. Arguably their most delicious and popular blend is the Plum Pudding. This is a strong mixture of five different tobaccos, but seems to be one of the silkiest textured tobaccos out there. People are going crazy over this blend. Order your new tin today!

As a new pipe smoker I found plum pudding interesting to smoke and very flavorful. Take your time with this one and really try to pull all the different flavors out and you too will find this very enjoyable!
So I made a review of an English blend that wasn't the highest of reviews. I made an order of a missing label/dented can and this is what I got. I must admit it sat for a month before I opened the tin. with some doubt and negative thoughts, I lit up my bowl and gave this "Plum Pudding" a try. First I want to thank the guys for sending me this tobacco, what a surprise it has been. the mix isn't overpowering in any respect and the flavors are melded perfectly. As a new pipe smoker, I am still feeling my way around what I like, trying things and all. I will say that this will end up in my rotation for sure. A rainy day smoke when you have all the earthy smells, you smoke one of these and you get all the wonderful earthy spicy flavors to go along with it. Again, Thanks guys for sending me this, I would love to get more advice from you on more tins. I would recommend this to folks that are looking for a well-balanced English-type blend that isn't overpowering. It's worth your time.
Absolutely fantastic. Especially after a hearty dinner relaxing on the porch.
My favorite tobacco period. Sweet and Earthy!!!!
A great blend that covers an array of tobaccos perfectly blended in my opinion.
Sorry to say nut this tobacco does nothing for me and cannot understand what all the fuss is about. I have also bought the Special version and truly hope that it wifi be better...
I tried Plum Pudding because I saw how it was regarded in the pipe community.also I think my tastes for different pipe tobaccos have been maturing and I was ready for something a little different. I was not at all disappointed with this blend...If you happen to like the taste of Latakia, Orientals, and Perique, you should definitely try this blend...it is very interesting, complex, sweet, sour, smoky and this has shown me what the hype was all about. This is a very good blend if you enjoy tasting out different qualities of good tobacco blends. I break off, lightly rub out, then dry for a short while.., then enjoy the concert of flavors...no doubt about it,..this has become a favorite of mine. Its a little more expensive, but I will purchase this again.
Very happy with this. It's smooth and complicated.
