    Well, because of another thread concerning drug store blends I've tried Prince Albert since coming to CS. Now, because of this thread, I went to the store during my lunch break and bought some Carter Hall and some Half n Half. I'll give them a try tonight (in a cob Mister Moo ).

    Your comments are better organized than my poll was. I've long since changed my PA/CH point of view from negative to neutral since changing pipes, btw. As a newer neutral I feel like I'm in good company.

    I hope TheTraveler is at least as pleased.

    After trying almost everything but captain black, I'm really enjoying CH, PA and ERR. I don't know what to think of H&H, I'll have to smoke it some more. The one I've been smoking the most has to be ERR though.

    So far I'm happy with the Prince Albert I've tried. I look forward to the H/H and CH tonight!

    I've been smoking a pipe for a few years but I never smoked anything except blends found at local B&Ms - never tried any "high-falutin' " tinned tobacco or any "OMG, you shouldn't smoke that crap" drug store stuff. Maybe that's a unique perspective and maybe not. Since coming to CS I've tried tobaccos from both ends of the spectrum and found, to my pleasure and surprise, that there is a lot more good tobacco out there than I previously realized.

    Another great thing about these is with Winter fast approaching, if I get too cold and have to dump my bowl out I will be less pissed off if I'm dumping Carter Hall that costs mere cents a bowl rather than some of the pricier stuff.

    The only one I've tried is the Captain Black...since I figured it was pretty indicative of drug store tobaccos I never went back for a second try of anything else...
    There is as much water on Earth now as three billion years ago. While the amount of water has remained static, the amount of Tequila and Triple Sec available for making Margaritas has expanded enormously. So you see, we have made progress after all.

    Well, now I've tried Carter Hall and Half n Half. Overall I'm glad I tried them just to make sure I leave no stone unturned in my pursuit of my favorite tobacco!

    The H & H I didn't really care for. The taste was passable but I didn't like the room note at all for some reason (or maybe that was just the chili I had for dinner!).

    The Carter Hall, on the other hand, is actually nice. I like it. I'm always going to have some Prince Albert and Carter Hall on hand.

    Maybe tomorrow I'll pick up some Captain Black, some aromatics, whatever the drug store holds.

    Of course, I've told my wife all about my intention to try all the drugstore blends I can find in preparation for Phase II of my master plan - trying all the nice, tinned, imported blends I can find. What do you think - will my plan succeed?

    You guys talk about these tobaccos as if they are very easy to get. I've never seen one drug store here in Arizona with Prince Albert. Only drug store tobacco I've seen are Captain Black and Blenders Gold.

    I really want to try Prince Albert too.

    Try Wal-Mart - the local WallyWorld here carries it. Also, do you have any "Discount Tobacco Outlet" type stores near you?

    Walmart carrys PA, at least it does here in GA. $2.02 per pouch. I prefer the tub but the pouch will do just fine also.
