New G. L. Pease Blend to Be Released at Chicago Pipe Show

Update May 9th: We received an advance sample of Triple Play, and you can now read the review here.

PipesMagazine.com Exclusive: New G. L. Pease "Triple Play" blend to be announced and available for sale at the Chicago Pipe Show.

The name Triple Play nicely coincides with its Springtime release and the All-American pastime of Baseball Season. Triple Play also refers to how the three different types of tobaccos in the blend work together as a team to create a unique triple-flavor-play. Like Pease’s most recent release, JackKnife Plug, Triple Play will also be in plug form, which is a brick-solid, brownie-size and shaped chunk of tobacco made up of Virginia, Perique and Dark Fired Kentucky. Pease tells PipesMagazine.com; "Triple Play has much less dark fired Kentucky than JackKnife Plug. I put just enough to add some dimension."

JackKnife Plug has been a runaway success. Pipe smokers seem to enjoy the unique plug form, so we imagine the new plug form Triple Play will be quite popular as well. Stay tuned for a review as soon as Triple Play is available.

I can just imagine how prospective reviewers will exploit the baseball analogy: everything from grand slams to strike-outs; and pinch hits to foul bowls. :)

Being new to the pipe smoking family, how does one go about smoloking a "plug' style tobacco in a pipe?

You have to cut it with a knife. First, cut off a slice. Then you can decide where to go from there. You can fold & stuff. You can smoke it sliced, sliced and rubbed out, or cube-cut.
Here's some info on different pipe packing methods, and Bob is working on a new one just for plugs.

I JUST BOUGHT 10 OF THE JackKnife PLUGS. I THINK THESE WILL AGE BETTER BECAUSE IT IS IN A PLUG

After reading the few articles referring to the new plug, and tasting something reminiscent of Cumberland/GLP, in JackKnife, I'm almost betting the new plug will be even more like a Cumberland plug. Anybody got thoughts on that? A friend of mine smoked JackKnife in a, 'pipe that has never seen cumberland' adn also says it's reminiscent of good ol'Cumberland. Hmmmm..... We'll see!

p.s. I have to make it clear that I am no way knocking Cumberland or JackKnife. Both are absolutely exquisite blends! Got a bunch of each in my 'cellar'. Thank you Glenn Pease.
