Wow, really been doing some posting today! lol Not sure if it's withdrawal from being away from the forum for so long or if work really is just that slow today! hahaha
Anyway, I tend to get stuck in the habit of going back to the same thing once I find something I like. When I started smoking a pipe I loved Eng/Lat blends, so that was all I smoked. Then I found Penzance, which was my fav and again all I really smoked. Then I was turned on to other blends not containing Lat and found 2 that I absolutely love in Stonehaven & Hamborger Veermaster. So now I find that I smoke these 2 blends like 70% of the time, Penzance like 20% of the time, and the other 10% of the time trying new stuff. As of late I really haven't found anything I can say I'm "crazy" about. Closest thing would be GLP Jacknife Plug & Haddo's Delight. Both great smokes, but I don't have the drive to smoke them like my favorites.
So in this thread I'd like you to list your top 3 tobaccos. If I were going to try 1 of them which would you recommend and why do you like it so much.
My top 3 are def Stoney, HV, & Penzance with Stoney being at the top! To me there is just nothing else like it out there, at least that I've tried. It isn't overpowering with body, but yet has enough flavor to satisfy any smoker. It is the smoke that got me to realize that pipe tobacco blends don't need Lat to be good and have a ton of flavor. In fact it along w/ HV is what put Eng/Lat blends on the back burner for me.
