    I am asking for some help picking out a nice tobacco that pairs well with the beautiful Georgia weather we've been having here lately. Unfortunately, I am not experienced in tobacco but I do know my preferences from what I have dabbled in so far. Now I absolutely love English blends but I have found that I enjoy the flavors and the experience more during much colder weather so I'm looking for something light like a Virginia blend maybe? I'm open to anything as long as the nic hit won't kick me in the head as I don't have a nicotine tolerance. Thank you!

    I know just what you mean about the break in the GA weather. It's been grand. As such, I would recommend a sweet VA: Rattray's Marlin Flake. I've been smoking a lot of it lately.

    4noggins' Virginia sampler would be a good place to start, IMO.
    PipesAndCigars.com puts together an amazing variety of sampler packages from which to choose.

    If you enjoy latakia and looking for something light, McClelland Craftsbury Series: Frog Morton Cellar is a nice, light English blend, a crossover with infusion from old bourbon whiskey barrels. Most everyone here loves it.

    For a nice, light virginia with plenty of flavor, try Dunhill Flake.

    Cortez's suggestion, the 5 ounce sampler from 4 Noggins, is also a good choice. My favorite is the Weybridge and the Prairie Wind is a very nice Va/Per.

    Fire Dance is a great virginia.

    Fribourg's Golden Mixture is a nice light virginia. It goes well with sunshine.

    Key Largo!

    This one may be strong...it's hard for me to tell, I have a pretty high tolerance.

    I'm an undying fan of Sutliff's Molto Dolce. Just open the tin, and the scent will knock you away.

    There is no beauty without some strangeness in proportion.

    Another classic which you may enjoy is Dunhill Royal Yacht, I would describe it as a Virginia "plus," and to my taste at least it is most definitely "delicious!"

    Also I suggest you give McClellands Yenidje Highlander a try.

    I am smoking Dunhill Elizabethan in a Dunhill DR Root Briar. It is a great combination. I believe this tobacco will be exquisite in many natural finish pipes, especially the Dunhill Roots and Peterson natural finish Sherlock Holmes pipes. Also excellent in Vintage Hilsons.
