Ok fellas. I'm new to pipes. A while back Francis (spectrrr) gifted me a pipe. I smoked it a few times and then socked it away. Just pulled it back out as I want to get into it. I picked up a couple house blends from a local shop a while back that have been stored in Mason Jars. They seem to be fine and I will smoke some of those.

I'm gonna pick up some pipe cleaners from 4noggins. What kind of aromatics or even nonaromatics would you recommend? Any help would be appreciated. :tu

Hello Justin, the two house blends you picked-up, are they aromatics or non-aromatics and what's your take on them?

you'll find out you want to try them all,just stay away from M79, or maybe that's your thing:sh:D Lanes 1Q in a MM pony cob is a great starter, you might be able to find Captain Black Royal a bit easier to find(heard it's the same thing) I thought aro's was gonna be my thing when I started, but found out quickly the non aro's are much more enjoyable. Rattrays Accountant's Mixture would be a nice start to English style blends. Actually, anything from Rattray's is a good quality tobacco. Have fun, and get a different pipe for aros and non aro's. :tu

I quickly moved away from aromatics when I first started into pipes. I think a good transition is Rattray Marlin Flake or any Virginia pipe tobacco.

I tried pipes for a while and just couldn't make it good to me. I figured since I use smokeless tobacco that my taste is probably zapped a lot of the time and the subtleness of a pipe is lost on me.

I have Anastasia which is aromatic and then the house blend which I'm not sure. I like them both.

You will enjoy this one Justin. It should become one of your favorites:tu

I was going to suggest a VA/PER such as H&H Anni Kake, H&H Virginia Spice, or C&D Old Joe Krantz to place in your rotation...
