2018 Contest Pipe and Tobacco
2018 Contest Pipe - BriarWorks Poker
The UPCA is happy to announce the contest pipe for 2018 will be a poker from BriarWorks. This handsome pipe features a black wire-brush finish with a nickel ring and acrylic stem. The pipe will be stamped "UPCA 2018."
2017 Contest Tobacco - McClelland 5100 - Red Cake
Once again, the UPCA contest blend will be McClelland 5100. This blend is a style of English Virginia that has seldom been seen in the United States. A sweet, exceptionally soft, fully rubbed matured cake.
As most of you know, McClelland has suspended production of 5100 due to poor quality of the Red Virginia tobacco in this year's crop. They then decided to go out of business. Fortunately, the folks at McClelland stashed some of last year's crop for use in our contest. So, we will be quite lucky to have aged 5100 in our pipes at this year's contest.
