Here are some questions from a Green Horn. I seem to have a problem with Virginian tobaccos biting. Are there any to look for that bite less than others. I like the English blends and they all seem to have a base of Virginians. I saw a tobacco that caught my interest ( Guys #25 English blend ) but cant find the web sight for the seller. Affordable Pipes And Cigars. At the present time I have 3 pipes. A corn cob, a wood from MM and a bent brier. I seem to notice that my pipes smoke better (to me)if I fill them only to about 75% to the top. Is this common. I notice that some smokers of English blends don't care for Burly. Why? This forum is the best thing that ever happened to pipe smoking. Saves time money and gray hair. AlthoughGetting I'm in too late for the gray hair.
