Some blends I've liked right away. Some blends, I didn't like at all, untill I tried them again. I've never given up after just one bowl. I even tried Mixture No. 79 twice, before I through it away. That being said, I don't have an all day every day tobacco, nor do I want one. I've got too many different blends in my cellar for that, and way too many blends yet to try!
