At smoking pipes the descriptions are actually legit.. not the usual over sell..

Donít forget tobacco reviews if you have questions. A peer review of each type of tobacco.

I took your advice Insignia100. I just jumped in the deep end and bought 2 tins of tobacco that I didn't really know everything about. I felt like your suggestion was a good one so here are the 2 I bought:



Tell me if I chose well. Thanks for the encouragement brother!

You chose well regarded tobaccos, but Virginiaís are not friendly to the new smoker and could cause some discouragement. Be sure to smoke very slow and I would suggest breaking up those mediallions the 1st few times. Advanced tobaccos, there.

My advice would be to go to a local tobacconist, if you have one, and ask them to suggest various blends that you can buy 1oz samples from bulk, to get an idea of what types of tobacco you enjoy. Once you discover the few you really like, come back and ask us for suggestions of well regarded blends that are similar. Weíll get you on the right track.

I, personally, would suggest you start with some Burley based blends that are available in ribbon cut. If you do buy flakes, rub them out and let them dry for 30 min to an hour. Iíve been smoking pipes for a few years now and I still donít smoke flakes, without rubbing them out. They are never dry enough for me when folded and stuffed. Sorry if Iím giving you newbie advice, but aim assuming this is new for you. If you want to chat about where to start, shoot me a PM and Iíll send you some samples of what Iím smoking right now.

I just tried Dunhill 3 year matured a few days ago, i put it right in the pipe from the tin, no drying time and it smoked very well, im a fast smoker and tend to get some bite but the Dunhill didnt do that, good choice im thinking, the other 1 i have not tried.
