Hey all. I started smoking pipes just a few months ago. I tend to prefer natural tobacco flavors, and only interested in aromatics that might have some decent flavor to them (haven't found any yet!)
I tried a few of Newminster's offerings this month with their Superior Navy Flake and Superior Round Slices. The navy flake is pretty good, but there was nothing superior at all about the slices IMHO. I'm cellaring ALL of the Superior Round Slices, and about half of the Superior Navy Flake, hoping they both age well. Even in the few weeks that I've had the navy flake, what I've been smoking has already improved by quite a bit.
I'm also a big latakia, perique, and virginia fan, so obviously I had to try Frog Morton. Love it. I tend to alternate every few days between cigars and my pipes, or just depending on what kind of mood I'm in.
Also have a cob besides those two.
