hello all. i've been pipe smoking a year (a newbie). i smoke a pretty little La Silvana Pipe but i'm in the market for an obnoxious big calabash (yeah, i'll admit i fell hard for it from the opening scene of inglourious bastards).

still looking for the perfect tabacco. i smoke a lot of frog morton, gl pease westminster, gl pease union square. probably what i smoke the most of though is tinderbox reserve 1928 which makes me think i might like aromatics, but i've not really ventured into them (i did just order 3 milan samples--two rum types and my buddy). i like the gentle sweetness that union square and westminster leaves in my mouth all day. if anyone wants to recommend tobaccos that walk the fine line of sweet/nutty without being over the top carmel corn, i'm all ears.

Welcome to BoB, Bruins, I myself if new to the Forum, I am so new I don't know what tobacco I have smoked, I am currently smoking something titled Honey and Chocolate but I do not recall the maker, and of course the Captain Black Gold that I ran out and got locally when I decided to start smoking a pipe again. I am going to Smokingpipes.com in Little River today, if anyone can recommend a good Tobacco that they sell. I like a aromatic type smoke.

Welcome to BOB:

Have you tried any McBaren Tobaccos ? Some say they have a reputation of being flame throwers. That's not been the case with me. Smoking slowly, Macbaren Mixture has been a regular for me for years. Check out tobaccoreviews.com. Pleasant piping!

Welcome aboard, Bruins! Maybe check out Peter Stokkebye's Luxury Twist Flake, a quality virginia with a light honey - like topping. Very satisfying, without being over the top in sweetness. Plus, it is available in bulk ... Happy piping!
