Just bit the bullet

So I am still new to smoking tobacco in other forms besides cigarettes. I just placed my first purchase of pipe tobacco and a cheap 5$ pipe. After a lot of looking and having no idea what i was looking at, I went with C&D's Corn cob pipe and button nose, Sutliff 1M and Lane 1Q. Im hoping there is something there I will enjoy.

Youíre starting out the right way, Missouri Meecham Country Gentleman is a great cob under $20. The choice of tobacco is very subjective as everything else. A local pipe shop for small samples, or purchases of small quantities is a good starting point. Enjoy!

Thanks for the advise. Pipe choice was easy since i wanted something i wouldnt mind tossing if i didnt enjoy it or ruin my misuse. I also tried to get a mix of tobacco that ranged in flavors and types at small quantities, 1-2oz per. Shipped this morning so hopefully ill have an update this week.

I see you picked 3 Aromatics and all Vanilla, hope you like them but for me and im quite new, i didnt like Aromatics when i started, in fact i stopped with the pipe because of them, when i started again i went with Va/Per and Va/Bur's so dont give up if you dont like those 3, just change it up a little

@Adarus21, have a look at some YouTube videos about the basics of pipe smoking. There are also some great tobacco reviews that will help you think about the nuances of what you're tasting. Some popular sites are Muttnchop Piper, Stuff and Things and Briar Blues. Enjoy the journey. As others have said, be patient and persevere and you'll learn to love pipe smoking.
