After FOUR years and 28(!) pages, I figures it was time for a new thread.

I went rummaging through my tin drawers last night and this tin of Bjarne Viking Erik the Red jumped out at me. I'd had it cellared away for about three years. I cracked the tin open and was almost overpowered by the cherry aroma. Thank goodness it doesn't taste as strong as it smelled in the tin. Just enough flavor to know it's cherry. Pretty tasty actually. Of course it looks like they don't make it anymore...

Had a bowl of 3 year old Lane Dark Red in an MM Little Devil Cutty when I got home from work today. The Dark Red is supposedly a cherry blend. Maybe it was the aging, but I didn't get a lot of cherry, at least not the overwhelming medicinal cherry prevalent in many cherry blends.

We all start somewhere. I bought a small pile of OTC pipe tobacco a couple of years ago, and I still love Carter Hall! I haven't touched a lot of the OTC brands, but it hasn't really been out of disdain for them. Though I love cherries in almost all forms, I have found I'm not a big fan of cherry flavored pipe tobacco. Anything boozy though, is a sure win for an aromatic blend.

If you want to try out a few different blends, please shoot me a pm! I have graduated from complete greenhorn status to amateur, and have picked up a ton of pipe tobacco in the process. Happy to pay it forward!

My brother text me last night and decided he was going to start smoking pipe tobacco. He's already a cigar smoker, but wants the sweetness from pipe tobacco (no cherry or anything). I tried smoking a few years ago, but could never get the technique down, so I gave up and donated all my pipe stuff on another forum.

Does anyone have an abundance of aromatic tobacco that you could put together a sampler for me?

I like the variety, although I must admit I'm returning to my more aromatic roots lately.

trying a bowl or two. (been sick since 2 Oct 2018.) from a 2/2011 tin of Wilderness. i have a dozen or so tins. this one is in the history books as well... sad. all that hoarding seems to have paid off. wonder what Pipe Stud pays for these? going for about $100 a tin now online. maybe i should cash in? that and the others stuff i have would pay for a nice car.... sad though.

Enjoying some Frog Morton on the town in my trusty Digby 9478. Makes for an enjoyable afternoon.
