Hi BoB
My son bought me a Savinelli 601 for CHRISTmas 2013.
It took me 3 weeks to light it.
Didn't know how to pack it, what to pack it with, how to light it, what to light it with.
Spent a a lot of time online trying to get answers to all my questions.
I found a place where an "old" guy sends a "new" guy samples from his cellar.
My "old" guy sent me 19 samples.
Some I really liked. Penzance, Special Latakia Flake, Blue Mountain.
Some not so much......I won't mention blends for this one for two reasons. One I may go back and try them again and find I like them. Two I don't want to get flamed.
I also found I liked Presbyterian which was recommended by Fr_Tom.
And I like Margate on a recommendation from TheBriary.

I'm a newb.... I'm having fun.

Welcome to BoB Spuddaddy, blimey, 19 samples, that was incredibly kind of your 'old guy', you're doing well keeping in mind that tastes can and do change over time, what may seem repellent now may seem delightful a week from now, all a part of the magic of pipe smoking, enjoy the journey.  cheers sunny

Welcome to BoB! And no, we won't flame you no matter what blends you like. And the tobacco cellar is a godsend (my web link), I'd be lost without it

Don't worry about getting flamed. When it comes to pipes, its so subjective that one man's penzance is another man's prince albert. Enjoy your sampling. If you live another 100 years you just might be able to try everything thats out there!

Welcome aboard!

Thanks Milkmanv1

I'm sure if I said "Frog Albert Vanilla Flake" sucked I would have found the the underside of things.... lol! 

And as far as the 100 years.....I hope not to be around that long.....so i got to speed things up!! bounce

I bought a tin but haven't opened it yet.

It is terrific. I like its mellow sweetness and the smokey latakia which melds very well into this mixture.
