especially if you 1st tried it as a rookie\novice. Important is probably the wrong word but it is good advice that if you are not crazy about a tobacco the 1st time you try it; cellar it and try it later on. Here is my story which involves McClelland's Wilderness: When I 1st started smoking a pipe almost 2 years ago, I received a generous sampler package from our very own YinYang. One of the tobaccos was Wilderness. At that time, I only had my 1 pipe; an estate Jobey Fawn, which I have since dedicated it to aro's. It had to have been my 1st taste of anything with latakia in it and really didn't know much about it. I really didn't care for this blend at all. I actually gave it a 1 out of 4. I kept reading and hearing good things about this one. In a recent trade with Briar Boy, I got a 2-3 bowl sample of Wilderness. Now please note that I LOVE Englishe's and blends with Latakia in it. (VA\LAT\O's especially) I fell in love after I tried Frog Morton for the 1st time. English'es are probably my favorite now. So just I fired some Wilderness up in my Sas pipe that is dedicated to English'es. (I have a few other English dedicated pipes also). Now I didn't LOVE it, but I do like it much better and understand it now. I am leaning towards changing my 1 rating to a 2.5 or 3. Probably 3 star. So just thought I would share my story and to encourage many beginners to try a tobacco again later on after you have been at it for awhile and understand all the different types of tobacco. I would love to hear others thoughts, opinions, and experiences on trying a tobacco later on that they did not like initially.
