I wish I had this when I first picked up the pipe! Great exemplars of each blend there.

In the early days of computers, we called these graphics "flow charts," or "logic charts," and, having nothing better to do while a room full of huge computers spun their tapes and generated printouts, we invented charts for all sorts of situations, from "should I get married?" to "do I need to go to the bathroom?" You can only imagine. But this is the first I've seen on choosing pipe tobaccos. Cool!

Not entirely certain how FVF gets listed under "No Nic Kick", I know I'm enough of a lightweight for this to be just my problem though.

I find it very interesting that, of the tobaccos listed, all the ones I generally smoke are in one block: (following the flow chart) complex>not super smoky>not sweet> Westminster, Nightcap, Penzance,3 Oaks Syrian, and Wilderness. Never had more than a bowl of any of the others, except 1Q.

Yep, the input from /r/pipetobacco was very helpful in making it. Thanks to them, the VaPers were added, as was Lane 1Q.
I'm really glad so many are enjoying this! That makes the time I spent not doing law-school work well worth it! :)

Nice !!!!!

I think I did find my tobaccos.

Now I am in 1Q and Night Cap but I might move to FM cellar.

That is the tobacco type I always wanted.

Thank you for sharing this. Based upon the chart I decided to try Gaslight and am very happy with it. I think I'll pick up some Escudo next.
