Morning all, I recently got into smoking pipes and am enjoying it so far. Made a couple mistakes, like making an impulse buy on a terrible pipe at a smoke shop that sells more bongs than tobacco pipes. Along with a pouch of Half and Half (yuck). Unfortunately there are no good tobacco shops in my immediate area and the best pipe to be bought is a Dr Grabow. Despite this, I found a place that had some Mac Baren tins in stock along with their Captain Black so I picked up a tin of their Scottish Blend. I mixed the remainder of Half and Half with some bulk black cavendish I picked up which made it more smokable.
But I've been enjoying my nightly bowl thus far and have been using the internet and tobaccoreviews dot com (can't post links it says) in place of a real tobacconist in my area. Looking forward to picking up a few cobs for experimenting with new tobacco. My first real pipe I think will have to be a Nording. Love the look of his freehand pipes.
Anyway, thought I'd say hi and I look forward to picking the collective mind for info about my new hobby.
