Default Give a FOG some advice

Ok all you pipe suggers, Give a FOG some advise here,
20 years ago I dabbled in pipe smoking, Won't tell you what I smoked cause' most of you would yak at the thought of it ( I smoke King Edward cigars back then ) I've been a big time smoker for 30+ years, And still smoke cigarettes as well ( Roll my own ) I'm thinking of pipe smoking again to cut back even further on the cigarettes I smoke but 30 years of smoking, Coffee and Bourbon has deadend the ol' taste buds, I like STRONG!
So what should I look for in the way of pipe tobacco?
I'm also CHEAP ...

This is about the strongest and most inviting leaf to cigar/cig smokers IMO. Look for an english blend.

I've tried a few of the aromatics, but there all tooty fruity... if you want something stronger the English blends I've tried might be more to your liking, as far as I know, which is very little, English Blends means no artifical flavors have been added, this may be more inline with what your looking for, a straight tabacco, and they do taste better than they smell.

Hey good luck with those cigarettes, I put em down about a month ago, one word Chantix, worked for me.....so far.

I would also recommend English and Balkan blends. If you want a straight up powerful tobacco I highly recommend Peterson's Irish Flake. It is an awesome smoke.

If you really want some of the strongest blends out there, you'll need to start with the Samuel Gawith & Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. Tobaccos. They are some of the strongest available!

The following are all Samuel Gawith & Gawith, Hoggarth & Co:

Samuel Gawith - 1792 Flake Spicy & strong!

Samuel Gawith - Black Pigtail This one can do permanent damage!

Samuel Gawith - Brown Pigtail Same as above!

Samuel Gawith Black XX Rope - This will rock your boat!

Samuel Gawith Black XXX Rope Strictly crash & burn!

Gawith, Hoggarth & Co. - Coniston Cut Plug Very full flavored & strong!

Gawith, Hoggarth & Co - Brown Irish Twist Very addictive & killer strong!

Gawith, Hoggarth & Co - Dark Birdseye A great smoke. This one will sneak up on you and hurt you!

Gawith, Hoggarth & Co - Dark Plug One of the best Very strong & tasty!

Here are a few others:

Kendal Curly Cut
Kendal Best Brown Flake
Grouse-Moor
1792 Flake
Squadron Leader
Full Virginia Flake
and
Scotch Cut Mixture

If you want flavor then try C&D black frigate, It smells like your burning a cat but it has flavor, or Mississippi mud from C&D

I believe you may have to look overseas for the Black or Brown Pigtail. I do not recall any US Vendor that carries it. I haven't had any for at least a year now.

The following vendor has a very nice selection of ropes & twist, from both Samuel Gawith & Gawith Hoggarth:

Two UK Vendors that should have them are:

You can buy C & D blends very reasonable online...............http://http://www.4noggins.com/cornellanddiehlbulktobacco.aspx

Billy Budd and Night Train are 2 favs of mine that are on the strong end of the spectrum. Night Train is loaded with Perique and Billy Budd with Latkia, both unique and flavorfull blends IMHO.
