I got my friend into pipe smoking not long ago. I gave him a decent amount of tobacco to start. Mixture 79 was one of them. I bought it to see why people dislike it so much. I smoked a few puffs and had to put it out. So, I was at my friend's house last night and asked what his favorite tobacco was. Mix 79. Out of all the tobaccos, including Hearth & Home blends and C&D blends, his favorite is Mix 79. I have nothing at all against him, allthough I do find this odd.
