    Lanes MV 1000 is sweet with a mild aromatic flavor and it's mindless to light and keep lit . It's available in bulk so you can get a 1 oz sample of it . Smokers Pride Black Cavendish is cheap , cool smoking , good and you can get 1 oz samples of it . If youre wanting something a bit more tobacco like , try Peter Stokkebye Luxury twist Flake ! You can get 1 oz samples of it too .Theres really a ton of them .. smokingpipes and wvsmokeshop have a bunch of 1 oz samples of their bulk stuff .. heck , for 20 bucks , you could try all kinds of stuff :th1:Enjoy

    WVsmokeshop is an excellent place to try a bunch of tobacco without breaking the bank. Their selection is smaller, but their prices are darned hard to beat. It's also, by far, the best place to shop for inexpensive Dr. Grabow and Kaywoodie pipes.

    Sorry your tobacco didn't work out for you, and everyone here has good advice that I agree with, I will however add that you may put the one you don't like to the side and maybe let it age, or dry out a bit and visit at a later day. It may be better. You may also try it in no different pipe, It may be different.
    Good luck

    +1 for Vermont Meat Candy.
    I'd also add pipesandcigars.com Trout Stream

    Thanks everyone , letting the B&M "cherry" breath some , my sutliff sampler should be here tomorrow , and Vanilla Cavendish from the worlds worst B&M isnt too bad if you smoke slow . Wife smoked it a bit fast said it had some "bite" to her tongue , although it was 20 and snowing so that might effect smoking speed . I will be ordering sampler tins of the above suggestions . I love smoking a pipe , you meet really helpfull and polite people fairly often

    If you can get hold of Ashton's Rainy Day, Smooth Sailing or Guilty Pleasure they're worth a try.

    I just tried some of this Drew Estate 7th Avenue Blonde, and boy is it sweet. Not bad when I'm in the mood for it.

    From looking at your other thread too....check out Iwan Ries & Co. Cherry Cordial. The smell and taste of that stuff is absolutely amazing.

    Lane 1-Q is a classic. Many Boswell blends are good aros. I adored Uhle's Christmas '11, but haven't tried any other aros from them.

    1Q is a solid choice.

    I just got some Adirondack Gold from Cup 'O Joes. It's sweet with vanilla and spice flavors from lighting to the bottom of the bowl. Lights and smokes very well. Very little after taste which I also like.

    I found Lane RLP-6 to be a really good and easily smokable aro when I first started (not all that long ago). Easy to pack. Easy to light and keep lit. Tasty and it's definitely sweet. It's funny, I hadn't smoked it in a long time and I had a bowl of it last week and while I was smoking it I was thinking, man that's a lot sweeter than I was in the mood for...
