In my relatively short time with Pipes, I’ve recently experienced this. Sir Walter Raleigh was the 1st tobacco that I actually enjoyed when I started with pipes.
Recently, I loaded a bowl from a 2 year old stash and it seemed sickly sweet to me. I couldn’t finish the bowl. I won’t toss it, because I think I’ll come back around, but it surprised me.
Sweet aromatics, on the other hand, I’ve never liked. Seems like every once in a while, I buy one (C&D Corn Cobb and a Button Nose) and hated it. Smelled amazing in the tin and two puffs in, it tasted like pure chemical to me.
Not sure I’ll ever come around to heavy Lat blends, though. The only blend I enjoy with Lat, is Edward G Robinson.
