A couple of months ago, in a fit of poverty and desperation for some, any, pipe tobacco, I ventured to purchase an ounce of Mellow Virginia, a tobacco I tried when I first took up pipe smoking and couldn't stand. I wrote a review online at the time that positively kicked it to death vowed never to touch it again. Two years on and a lot more pipe tobacco under the bridge, I was pleasantly surprised by this and ventured further to try another two ounces and a couple of other baccies I had written off - most notably Bosun Plug Cut (the first pipe tobacco I ever tried) - and have become a new found fan of them. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences of tobaccos that you originally couldn't stand but tried again after a bit of experience and enjoyed. Extra marks while be given for style and presentation.
