Hopefully should get my shipment Wednesday if all goes well.
I retried Presbyterian I pulled a Richard Patterson only with pipe tobacco... 😝
Like G.I Joe knowing is half the battle.
Having a bad introduction to a tobacco can create a bad first perspective and unenjoyable experience.
It's like anything you go to eat something and you think it tastes like one thing and it tastes like something else well that's just off putting.
So having a good profile is helpful and from a couple different sources and descriptions.
I was able to enjoy the English blend a little more knowing I'm gonna have leather, a little smokiness, and sort of I guess what is the melange or incense sort of tangy but not I can't really pick up what that's supposed to be. 🤔
Sorry, just had to say how much I like this thread. I spent a long time not knowing (or caring) anything about pipe tobacco outside of the one store I went to. I never made a thread like this but I've read a hundred of them on PSF as a lurker. The questions asked were ones I had but felt to awkward to ask myself, and the answers given helped make pipe smoking something I enjoyed, instead of just something I did. Good luck.
