Hello everybody, my name is Andy, long time cigar smoker and picked up piping earlier this year. I tend towards darker natural tobaccos and Burley blends and not to sound repetitive, but I prefer my tobacco to taste like tobacco. Heard about this forum from friends on another who said this was a good place so thought I would check it out.

2: Solani ABF

3: Uhle's Blend 00

Also have a few other favorite Burley blends like well aged ( over 10 years ) the Old Codger Carter Hall

Hi Andy! welcome to the BoB. I hope you enjoy your time here. If you like strong unflavored tobacco that doesn't necessarily taste anything like cigars (since LC made some recommendations there), you might want to look into some of the Gawith Hoggarth & Samuel Gawith rope blends.

Welcome from the outskirts of northern Michigan. The pipes shops are almost non-existent but population is more agreeable to this member. Enjoy your stay here and you can learn much here. I made one visit to Iwan Riess, WOW!

They have literally thousands of pipes in stock, it's pretty amazing! If anyone is looking for a Castello, they are overstocked and would likely make a great deal for you.

Thanks again for the welcomes fellas.

Quick question: how do I setup an avatar? I see that a lot of you have one, but I don't see where to set it up in my profile.
