Looking for suggestions
I've finally tried some different pipe tobaccos.
Sutliff Great Outdoors: nasty... it has a strange cloying smell/flavour that is perfumish and really turned me off.
CAO Eileen's Dream: Neither good nor bad. I suspect I'm not a fan of flavoured pipe tobacco.
Davidoff Flake Medallions: I love it! Was my favorite until I tried my next tin below.
Erinmore Flake: The best pipe tobacco I've smoked so far. I particularly like it when I'm working on projects, as I can stick the pipe in my shirt pocket, and pull it out when I need a few minutes to puff and think about what I'm doing. It always tastes great on the re-light! Even after sitting half burnt till the next day. Incredible stuff.
My friend, Juan Ordonez, brought me a about two bowl-fulls of what his Abuelo smokes. He only knew it was "burley", no further info. I really liked it. Nutty, strong, and just all around tasty.
Do yall have any suggestions for me as what to try next? I loved the two types of flake that I've tried so far, the burley was really nice, and I'm interested in trying some rope. Please "pipe in" with some suggestions.
Thank yall ahead of time.
