Joe not only blends superlative tobaccos, he is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. His wife is also super nice. I miss the SPC meetings. They were always more special when the Lankfords could make them.
Thank you Jim for this terrific review and profile of Joe's wonderful blends. We love 'em of course but it's just great to see Joe's blends enjoyed by so many folks in our pipe community. Your eloquent reviews put into words what I would have a tough time describing. Looking forward to your reviews of Plum Pudding and Plum Pudding Special Reserve!
Check the article again as Jim's ratings from the 4-star rating scale accidentally got stripped out when I copied over. They are added back in now.
We will have a part two with the rest of the blends next month.
