STP M/M Log Cabin House Blend Pipe Tobacco

September 2020

BLEND:  M/M Log Cabin

BRAND:  STP House Blend

BLEND TYPE:  Aromatic

FLAVORING:  Maple

CUT:  Ribbon & Course

M/M Log Cabin was developed by Mike and Meaghan Hulsey as a match for the original Lambert & Butler's Log Cabin blend.  Quality Burleys are blended with flu-cured, red, gold, and stoved Virginias and a pinch of Black Cavendish is added for good measure.  However, it's the maple flavor that takes this blend over the top. A Burley-forward aromatic, M/M Log Cabin produces a char light aroma of oatmeal molasses cookies that transitions into the scent of fresh baked sweet nut bread about halfway through the bowl.  The flavor profile is just as mouthwatering ... delectable notes of a natural maple syrup greet you at the start and segue into an earthy, nutty flavor with a hint of spice about a quarter of the way in that remains through the rest of the bowl.

BLEND TYPE:  Straight Virginia

FLAVORING:  None

CUT:  Ready Rubbed

Cornell & Diehl's Derringer pipe tobacco is an old-school style of Straight Virginia tobacco that provides a rich tasting smoke with a wide range of naturally occurring flavors from the usual citrusy, grassy hay to ripe, dark and stewed fruits, to floral notes thanks to the well-balanced blending of red, bright, and stoved, fermented Virginias.  Its sugar casing helps tame any harshness while lending a light honey flavor to the overall melange.  Watch Sean's video review of this blend on our Video Reviews page.
