*DISCLAIMER: LONG POST* A few months ago, I decided to check out the local cigar/pipe store rather than driving 30min to my regular tobbaconist. As I figured, this store catered mostly to cigars. They did have a few jars of bulk pipe tobacco, but they were half empty and looked rather old. I did see a few tins behind the counter, and I decided to pick up the Acadian Perique. The price was a bit steep, I though, at roughly $22. When I got home and opened the tin, I felt I should have rolled the $20 up and smoked that instead; I was disgusted. I reasoned that since I paid for it, I might as well smoke at least one bowl. I was pleasantly surprised that the toby did not taste as it smelled. Still, I was a little disappointed. I don't know what I didn't like, I just knew it didn't do it for me. Smoked another bowl a few days later and decided it was a decent blend. Put the tobaccoo in my pipe drawer and forgot about it until today. I don't know if its because I have been smoking the same blend for the past month, or because the tobacco changed once it was out of the tin and into a jar, or if my taste buds adjusted but tonight I am smoking a bowl and really enjoy it. I'm thinking of mixing some of it with my Matured Virginia and seeing what happens. Anyone else ever go through this kind of phase with their toby?
