Much like yourself, I started out with a MM cobb and Captain Black Royal. Soon after I purchased a Dr. Grabow Omega (which is still in my rotation) from the local drugstore and continued with the CB Royal. I've added a clay tavern and several Peterson Sherlock Holmes pipes to my collection, and now mainly smoke Peterson's Sherlock Holmes and Irish Whiskey blends. I also keep a tin of McClellands 221b black shag. I would recommend the Sherlock Holmes blend for smoothness. Not sure about the sweet smelling part though.
