Sorry if you didn't like the baccy
You might have to give it a few tries before you warm up to it... you can read about some of my misadventures with pipe tobacco here --> Zurg's Random Tobacco Ramblings
Also, the tobacco probably isn't going to have as much taste as it could have until your pipe breaks in.
Then there's the whole gamet of packing and tamping properly - lol!
45 minutes and 4 relights though... that's pretty darn good for the very first bowl!!
