    So, I received my online order of tobacco, and that in conjunction with some that I have bought locally has left me with a dilemma. I can't decide which one to try next!!!

    I have the following to pick from. I know what you are thinking, "What a horrible position to be in", so your guidance would be great.

    Tinder Box - Philosopher - a VA/Oriental blend
    Balkan Sasieni
    MacB Burley
    SG Navy Flake
    SG Fire Dance
    SG Kendal Cream
    McClelland Frog Morton on the Town
    McClelland Jubilee
    GL Pease Union Square
    GL Pease Chelsea Morning
    Davidoff Flake Medallions
    Orlik Golden Sliced

    Pottsy not sure how many pipes (cobs included) you have. FWIW if you're looking for an english start with FMOTT, if you're looking for a Va/Burley go with Orlik OGS. I know Sas will chime in and say crack the Jubilee.

    In the end its up to you bro, you have some real winners there so just have fun with it!!!

    Well, currently I only have 1 pipe. I know that might not be the way to go, but for now, it is what it is.

    Since you have 1 pipe, I suggest going with the Virginias first, since they won't ghost, and then working your way into the Latakia blends. Think of it like a flight of wine during wine tasting. You start with the white wine first, then work your way into the reds. Same principle.

    Exactly. Start with the uncased virginias and move into latakias (fmott, jubilee etc) later.

    Really, the solution is to buy another pipe or two.

    OK, first let me say, wow. I can not get over the generosity of this forum. You are a great bunch of folks, and I will not forget it. I will continue your \generosity.

    Second, tried the Orlik Golden Sliced, and it was awesome.

    Yeah, apparently I didn't realize the importance of hardware when I picked up this hobby.

    I tried the OGS, and have since tried it a couple more times, it was a great smoke each time.

    Yeah, if you never even tried your other 'baccy's...(because you sent them to other forum members, fer instance... :chair: ) you would still be doing fine with OGS.
