PostSubject: Greetings from Georgia   Wed Dec 02, 2009 8:22 am

Hello all,

I am a recent pipe smoking convert after being a relatively long time cigar smoker. While visiting Gatlingburg in early October my new fiance (proposed on the trip) and I decided to give pipes a try after talking to the guys at Gatlinburlier. My initial thoughts were just as a novelty and so we both chose churchwarden's that we liked, thinking that we would continue primarily smoking cigars. Now after a couple of months with the pipe I am about ready to trade off everything in my humidor for pipes and pipe tobacco. I have come to the realization that the churchwarden may not have been the best first pipe but the style suited me and it definately got me in and hooked. Last weekend I decided to upgrade and purchased the beautiful Ben Wade freehand seen below while I was at The Briary in Homewood, AL. Now its just a matter of trying as many tobaccos as I can get my hands on. Not qutie sure where my preferences lie, though. Everything I've tried so far has been aromatics of one sort or another and While I enjoy the room note I could use a step up in the flavor dept.

Is there anyone in the Greater Atlanta area that meets regularly? I am in Carrollton but we don't have much in the way of tobaccos availble here so are there any good shops around?

Looking forward to getting to know everyone here,
Adam

Greetings and welcome! This is a GREAT place to hang out, learn, socialize, and ask questions... so do so and know that we were all at one time in the same place you are now. Have fun and enjoy the journey! Oh, by the way, I really like the Ben Wade freehand - a classic.

Thanks for the greetings.

My fiance is in the process of finishing school at U of Alabama, so I still pass through Birmingham and Tuscaloosa pretty regularly. Are there any type of group get togethers in that area?

Not that I am aware of.
They usually have a pretty good crowd in the lounge area every Saturday, esp during football season.

Welcome Aboard! You have chosen wisely! You now need to try an English Blend, A straight Virginia, and a Virginia/Perique blend. That will give you a good place to start. Try a tin of 'Frog Morton" from McClelland for an English blend. That is always a good place to start when making the transition from aromatics. For a Straight Virginia I might go with a tin of Orlik's Golden Sliced and for a Virginia/Perique(Va/Per) blend of course A&C Peterson's Escudo Navy Deluxe. I'm sure you will get many other worthwhile suggestions. Go to tobaccoreviews.com and start doing some research.
