Ask Dwaugh for a spreadsheet
Buy a bunch of different blends you think you may enjoy.
Stuff into pipe.
See if you like it or think it's Satan's spawn (like Half & Half)
Buy more if you like it.
Rinse and Repeat.
It's a pipe, not a rocket.
I'll second the recommendation for Pipes & Tobaccos magazine. I started subscribing to it shortly after the first copy was released in the mid-late 1990's. I didn't even own a computer then nor did I have access to the internet so forums and online info were not available to me then. I learned a lot from those magazines and I always awaited the next issue with great anticipation. There is nothing quite like smoking a pipe while reading a fresh issue of a magazine dedicated to the hobby.
I cut off my subscription years ago and typing this makes me want to subscribe again.
