Default Cheap tobacco

Can you ruin a pipe by smoking cheap tobacco in it. Like say CVS tobacco?

I'd say set aside one pipe for the cheap stuff and knock yourself out.
But keep another one for your better selections. If you don't mind estate pipes, I can ship you another one if you need it.

I think that ruining a pipe is difficult or impossible without physical destruction.
Everclear in the bowl with salt is a great way to remove past materila, tastes, scents.

I'd say that NO you can't

Although there are a few tobacs out there that can leave a pretty stubborn ghost if smoked continually. But I wouldn't generally worry about it

Peter, if you like the aroma smoke it.
The local drugstore will have Captain Black. Smokingpipes.com has a VAST assortment.
The problem is WHAT DO YOU LIKE????
You have to experience it, buddy.
Send me your address and I'll send you a coupla samples of baccy...

Smell and taste it at a pipeshop..YES! put it on your tongue.

You mention CVS...There are several pouches that they will have and you WILL LIKE IT...
I don't know the prices of tobacco...so I'd say buy several different types of their pouches..
Experiment...
like with scotch or cigars...a taste, I think, developes with experience.Laphroaig was my fav when I could drink...I didn't start with that...
Your palate may not have the experience to appreciate nuances of cavendish or something...

It is so hard to decide. Living in south florida, I have found that most smoke shops don't carry a large supply of pipe tobacco. Mostly bulk stuff. I did go to a shop last night and bought one bag of blue note from altadis and the guy gave me a bag of julious orange free. I told him I was a new smoker and felt sorry for me. I am saving these for my new pipe.

So far I have bought from CVS Blenders Gold Royal Cherry Cavendish. I was on duty and was bored, so I walked to the store and bought it. It is ok,mild though. I like the price, won't break the bank. Something like $10 for 12 oz. My first purchase was 3 oz. of simspon's reserve and 3 oz of gunny's blend for 2.25 an oz. Both of these are from Lane? Both bulk,still mild and not too flavor full. Good for the price, but still not happy. Then I bought honey something from lane I think. I can taste this more, but still too mild. Help? I asked my wife and she said that everything I have smoked so far, she hasn't found any that really smelled good to her. I am smoking these all out of the same cob. Could that be the answer? Help?

I wonder if this is the same as Dan's Blue Note? This is the first blend I ever smoked when I bought my first smoke. I loved me some of that tobacco!

I would suggest just trying a bunch of new tobaccos. Get some english blends and see if they suit your fancy!

It's actually very hard to 'ruin' a pipe, but baccy's that taste bad will not do you pipe any favours....the worst outcome will be a Salt and Alcohol treatment to sort it out.
