    I am in a discussion with some fellas regarding SPC Plum Pudding. One fella swears up and down that all SPC blends were created by Russ, and not Joe Lankford. He said “Yes, the person who blends it is Russ. I believe he worked with Joe, but has always been the maker of all of the Seattle Pipe Club tobaccos.” Am I missing something? Or is he just misinformed? Thanks!

    He is misinformed, or simply another idiot who likes to spread misinformation.

    The internet also corrected the error. We live in a constant information war about pretty much everything...any given subject requires personal effort to get anywhere near the reality of things.

    Which is why the web is such a double edged sword...lots of bad info with it...but more limited and harder to access info without it.

    I wrote about this a couple years back for this forum. Joe Lankford is the sole creator of the original SPC blends. Here's my reviews of them, plus the history of how they came to be.

    Thanks fellas. I was pretty sure that there wasn’t anything going on that I was unaware of with the creation of SPC blends, but wanted to check to ensure that I am a help to net truth and not a hindrance.
