So after doing my research and getting help from PSM I went to a local cigar/tobacco shop to get a cob and try some tobys. I've been there before for cigars and everyone is really helpful. I was set up with a cob, a pipe tool, and 50g of their custom blend. I was really excited but was surprised at the price of the tobacco. It was about $25 for the 50g which seemed steep but it was cheaper than the name brand tobys which were selling for $30-35 for a 50g tin. So I'm wondering, did I pay too much or is this hobby a little more expensive than I might have initially though?
