Both will likely give you more of what you are looking for. Just remember to smoke slowly. This will help you pick up some flavors instead of just hot smoke.
    I second that and I always say newbies should start with english, balkan or VA/latakia blends because you can taste the latakia if you can't taste anything else

    Thanks for the tips guys. I've also noticed that people say that over time, I will pick up the flavors more and more. I'm making a trip to one of the local stores tomorrow, to try some English and VA blends.

    Would Frog Morton be a good blend for a newbie? Or should I try some other non-aro blends first? (I've only smoked a couple aro blends before)

    Being fairly new to pipe smoking myself, a seasoned pipe smoker recommended Frog Morton to me as I had only smoked aromatics before. I love it! It's by far the best tobacco I've smoked yet. Keep in mind that my experience is quite limited, but I do enjoy FM. I haven't bought any other tobaccos lately and have put the aromatics down for now. I just really like the FM. I'll probably try the other FM blends after I go through the tin I'm on now.

    Alright, I think I'll get a tin. Is it a strong tobacco? I heard that it doesn't bite much, would you agree?

    The Frog series would be good for you. It smokes easily and I don't remember getting tongue bite when I was smoking it. Pipesandcigars used to have the 4 tin set for a discounted price. Actually the original Frog was my least favorite of the set.

    It's not strong at all, I find it quite mellow. I've experienced no tongue bite at all smoking it.

    I really want to try the other FM blends, but at $30 a tin up here the "master of finances" aka wife really limits my purchases! lol

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    I looked at the price of some FM tins at me local B&M, and $25 a tin is a little too much for me... Are there any tobaccos similar to FM but for a lot less - around $12 or less?

    Did you look at 50 or 100g tins? Here's the 4 tin set that I mentioned $29.99

    ohhhh... I think It might have been the 100g tin

    I'll have to go back and see what the price is for a 50g

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    Went back today and got a 50g tin for around $10. I got the just the plain FM. Not too fond of the smell, but you really can't judge a tobacco based on smell.

    I'll light it up sometime this weekend and see what I think.

    Had a few bowls of FM over the weekend and really enjoyed it. It's the best pipe tobacco I've had so far. Thanks for the recommendation guys!

    (Sorry about the triple posting!)

    Glad you liked it. I'm trying to decide what FM blend to try next. Decisions, decisions!

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    I'm just wondering if anyone can speak to whether a stem can be darkened once it has faded to that almost brown color that some stems seem to turn as the pipe ages and wears. I presume the answer is no, but didn't know if anyone had some experience with this. I didn't think a normal stem polish would do the trick, but I don't know what else could be done.

    You bet it can. A lot of the guys here refurb their old pipes themselves. I take mine to my local BM and they do it for $5. Stem looks as good as new after a good polishing. There are a lot of guys here that do their own and they could be better help. Also search the topic. I have read a number of posts here on this subject. I have been wanting to learn to do it myself so I will search it too.
