I feel your pain. Luckily a few places in TN still grow their own tobacco so you can get some high quality stuff for fairly cheap. I've never heard of that tobacco blend, is it local?

I went to college in Kansas, and they had some goodddd tobbacco shops there, so I used to smoke pipes all the time. We looked like old men, sitting in a circle in a corn field hah, good times!

I now have 3 briar pipes. I have been smoking this stuff called "Wilshire." I have been getting it at the TinderBox for $4 an ounce. It's actually really good. It smokes nice and cool and it's always fresh there. Most of the smoke shops around here don't keep fresh product in, so I get it there.

Honey/Maple is among my favorite variety as well.

Pipe smoking is always associated with old men for some reason ah well, I would much rather smoke a pipe, or a cigar, than cigarettes. At least you enjoyed it and that's all that matters!

So you smoke alot of aromatics? I only have 2 pipes, a Dr. Grabow (my first, wanted to try it out and bought a cheapy) and my Chacom, which is my current. I smoke Westminster in it, and it is a traditional, non-aromatic english blend. I really want to try a good aromatic, though.

Vin, can you look at this website and recommend a good aromatic to me? They have a pretty wide selection and it's where I usually buy from since the tobacco stores around here don't sell much other than lighters and cigarettes. I haven't really tried any good aromatics and I want to try something sweet, honey, maple, vanilla, chocolate, you know. I would like to get a rotation going.

Just ordered me a sampler of Iwan Ries Cavendish... I was not aware that they were all 7oz packs. Wow that's alot of tobacco for a casual smoker I feel like a drug dealer! :rofl:

Guess I'll find some I like and then put the rest on ice for awhile.

Don't freeze/refridgerate your tobacco. It could dry it out or possibly lose it's flavor. It's always a good idea to keep it in a tight, sealed container in a cool place.

Really? I used to put my cartons in the freezer when I used to smoke, and I thought it made them taste way better.
