Brand new pipe smoker here! The name is Dylan, from West "by God" Virginia! Got my first pipe yesterday and have enjoyed one bowl of grandpas blend tobacco! Make me welcome, introduce yourself, and reccommend your favorite smoke!
Welcome Dylan! I'm brand new to pipe smoking too. There are plenty of knowledgeable brothers here that are eager to help you along. I highly recommend the Newbie Sampler Trade for Pipes . It's a great way to try a wide variety of good tobacco, and begin to determine your taste preferences.
As for tobacco, I have smoked a fair amount of Prince Albert and Lane 1-Q, in getting acquainted with proper smoking technique. Those are pleasant in flavor and easy to work with. Now slowly working through my samplers, my favorite so far is the one I'm currently into: Peter Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake (aka LBF)
to Puff, Dylan! There's such a broad variety of pipe tobaccos out there, not to mention a broad variety of preferences, that I'd hate to actually recommend anything, but my favorites are Frog Morton and Peter Stokkebye Proper English.
Hi Dylan.....and you're right in my backyard. I'm getting ready to send you a PM....keep an eye open for it!
Ahh! just realized you don't have enough posts to receive PM's from other members. I just wanted to let you know that we have a Pipe club that meets at Tobacco Warehouse in Cross Lanes on the second Tuesday of each month. Very Short notice but tomorrow July 10th is our next meeting from 6pm to 8pm. Bring your pipes and some zip lock bags. as there is always a plethora of different things to try. And judging by your user name, we have many things in common! Hope to see ya tomorrow.
