    Does anyone here primarily smoke only a few blends in their normal rotation?

    Lately, I have found myself smoking almost entirely GLP Telegraph Hill. I have stopped smoking my normal 12 blend rotation of English, Balkan, and dark-fired blends, a straight Virginia, and a maple aromatic. This got me thinking: I really enjoy the simplicity and rhythmic nature of pipe smoking. When smoking the same blend day after day, you know what to expect in terms of burn rate and flavors, which, in turn, gives you the chance to enjoy the slight nuances of smoking the same blend in different pipes. I think that I am going to trim down my cellar and only smoke GLP Telegraph Hill and Dunhill Flake. If my taste change, so be it.

    No, but... Telegraph Hill is a favorite of mine, but I haven't had it in years. There are just way too many fantastic blends out there to get stuck in a rut with just one or two blends.

    For me right now yes to your question. Iam so new to pipe smoking I cant really tell the difference between tobaccos. Iam just trying to get down what I call the mechanics of loading a bowl , packing and keeping it burning.

    I used to be a 2 to 3 blend guy. Was that way for years and it was satisfying as all get out. Nowadays I have a much wider variety of blends that I enjoy smoking. But I'll often smoke only one blend for several days, or a week, then switch to something else. It's a rare day that I smoke more than one blend in the course of a day.

    Interesting … your story is almost identical to mine. I used to smoke a zillion different blends and naturally ended up at a point where I smoke Telegraph Hill almost all the time. When I'm not smoking TH I smoke Quiet Nights. I'm not opposed to other blends and fully expect that I'll get back into smoking them eventually, but for now TH and QN are my thing.

    I smoke relatively little, average maybe a bowl a day, so I have a hard time really "remembering" blend flavours. having said that, I've stuck to 4 blends for about the last year.

    I have roughly three blends that I smoke all the time, and which would completely satisfy me if they were all I could smoke from now on. But I have a revolving door of one or two additional blends that I smoke for the novelty.

    My answer is no. I like to mix it up. I'll compare it to sweets. I'm not going to treat myself to just a chocolate chip cookie or a peanut butter cookie or an oatmeal raisin cookie. I want to mix it up. Occasionally I want a lemon bar, a blueberry muffin or a brownie...

    It's the variety of the different blends that makes it more enjoyable for me. If I didn't try other blends I never would of discovered St. Bruno Flake, SG Bothy Flake and GH Ennerdale. Which are new blends to me that I enjoy.

    For me, if I smoke the same Virginia blend all day, my tongue gets sore and taxed, leaving me unable to smoke for a while. But, if I switch between blends all day, I can constantly have a pipe lit without ever getting sore.

    I maintain a short rotation of 4 or 5 blends, but switch-out certain blends on a regular basis; so, the short rotation seems to evolve over the month(s).

    I have about 60 blends cellared, but I don't constantly rotate through all of them. I'll hit the McCrainie's or McClelland Reds about once a year, and that's what I'll smoke for a week or two before moving on to something else that I'll smoke for a week or two. Stonehaven I'll smoke every three to four months for a day or two. I'm not smoking nearly as much as I used to do, maybe 2 bowls a day, and compared to many other pipe smokers, that's a lot. Also, I give it all a rest for a couple of weeks every year. Occasionally I'll smoke several blends in a day. Right now I'm smoking a tin of RO Perique Series GP-11. Last week it was St Bruno. It's just a matter of what I feel like smoking.

    I have a couple bigger jars of regulars and a tub of LL Ready-Rubbed within reach always, then I'll pop a tin of something to throw into the mix and smoke it til it's gone before moving on to something else. Once in a while I get a wild hair and have a one day fling with an oddball.

    I never gave it much thought until recently when I decided to take a look so that I could tailor any buying to suit. Three blends make up about 75-80% of consumption, split fairly evenly. The rest is a total hodgepodge.

    The easiest way for me to visualize it is as four "slots." One each for my three favorite blends and then a wild card. This makes buying/planning quite simple.

    I usually stick to what I enjoy. These six blends constantly deliver satisfying bowls. I don't enjoy surprises, good or bad, so I smoke what I know. The demise of a blend sometimes forces me to find something new.

    The old time pipe smokers often were one-brand smokers and smoking something else regularly was a big life change. Ashdigger smokes Granger 80% of time. My dad, 1917 to 2006, smoked Granger and only Granger for most of 50 years, with a few years off for King Edward cigars only, and quit cold turkey at age 65, and lived until age 89 and six months. Technically, Granger is an aromatic, but you have acute taste if you can tell from smoking it. He quit smoking when he took a job at a campus that was smoking restrictive.

    I do, but due to money restrictions.

    I'd have a more comprehensive tobacco rotation if I had more money available.

    But I'd never be a connoisseur though, I think.

    I've smoked nothing but Erinmore Plug this week so I could likely smoke just a couple of blends though I have dozens in my closet.

    I like variety with a couple dozen open tins, and I’m having a lot fun blending my own mixtures. However, 4 or 5 blends make up 75% of my smoking

    I have 3 or 4 go to blends and I usually mix in 3 or 4 new blends in my rotation.

    I have a couple of "daily bread" blends that I smoke, and then I throw one of any number of blends on occasion just to mix things up. Primarily, I smoke a lot of Chatham Manor and Lane Limited Ready Rubbed. These are great burley blends that are good for all-day, no special occasion smokes. If the weather is particularly inclement, which is rare here in San Diego county, and I smoke indoors, I'll smoke RLP-6 or 1Q for the sake of my wife (or at least mix a little into Chatham Manor).

    I've gone through phases with that. Like appetite fatigue, I get tobacco fatigue and like to try out new blends.

    I used to be a one blend pipe smoker, but after being introduced to the World Wide Web, joining various pipe forums and finding online tobacconists, I'm all over the place. I'm trying to get back to maybe 3 blends only, but it's hard to do.

    I smoke a blend for a few days then move to another. Some days I'll have a few different blends in the same day but that is mostly during the summer months

    I don't think I'd be able to be a one-blend smoker. Heck, a few weeks ago I had a bowl of HLG and really enjoyed it, so the next day I loaded the pipe again with the same blend... just... not... really... the same thing. It was kinda meh.

    Sorry, but I like my variety.

    I do a minor rotation. For example, I’ve been working hard on MacBaren’s HH Burley and HH Virginia almost exclusively the last two weeks. Enjoying the focus on these two great tobaccos (in my new to me Ashdigger Dunhill- Thanks again!). Into that mix I’ve been smoking CD Opening Night (I much prefer the HH Va).

    By the way, Ash, I’d love to read why you’ve settled into Granger.

    I'm pretty much satisfied If I'm able to rotate between say 3-4 blend at a time, due to some difficulties In getting various blends here (and there this price point factor also)I'm opting to keep it steady and because of the aforementioned circumstances I do keep minimal rotation, better no shots in the dark at this point, all my souring is from abroad.

    I like this thread. I'm trying to stick to stick to just a few blends at a time. I'm still in the sampling stage of my piping. I'm also trying to spend less money so I need to work through stuff I have not even tried.

    I've been stuck on Peterson's University Flake, and a local B&M shop's cavendish blend called Kerrisdale Cav.

    Those really are the only two I smoke these days

    I had a very large rotation when I first started, and over the years the circle of blends got smaller and smaller(while my cellar got bigger and bigger) as I dialed in my tastes.
    Recently I have been on a Va/per kick and have been primarily smoking Telegraph Hill.

    Good question, and interesting to me for another reason. I smoked pipes for years before there was an internet, or forums, or groups dedicated to pipe smoking. I had no idea what, or how, anybody else handled their pipes. I didn't know how to clean them properly, or repair them, or what blends had the best reviews. I, along with I suspect a lot of guys my age, just sort of figured it out myself, or used information I could glean from guys that ran the B & M s I frequented. These online sites changed everything for me- lots of useful information. So, it is interesting to read how other guys work a tobacco rotation. Myself, I have 2-3 blends I smoke; usually VA in the morning (my current favorite is Opening Night or Old Gowrie: not a straight VA but close enough), then move to a VAPER in the afternoon: currently Dunbar or Telegraph Hill or Park Square, and occasionally, usually in colder weather, a mild Balkan in the evening: Exotique or Harkness Tower are favorites. I smoke one tin at a time rotating through these types of blends. When I finish a tin, I'll open something else and rotate it in the same order. I love to try new blends, and I find myself obsessing over tobacco reviews trying to figure out what I would like, but usually stick to these basic categories.

    I am only able to smoke maybe 2-3 bowls a week. So as a result I am all over the place as far as what blend I will smoke on any particular day. Sometimes my mind will fixate on a certain blend and I will smoke that one for one bowl. Then as a result of reading this forum, I will be reminded of a blend I had opened and liked so will smoke that one the next time. Rarely will it be the same blend in the same week. I just have too many tins open and not remembering in any detail what it tasted like from the last time, will revisit a blend that I may have last smoked 3 months ago. I keep telling myself that I am going to just smoke one blend till I finish off the tin, and really get to know that blend for a month, but I find myself wanting to revisit something else when the time comes.

    tabakpfeife.. Don't discount what the guys at the B&M have to say, they have to be knowledgeable or go out of business and had an interest in it to invest their $$, or they could have opened a Starbucks or blacksmith shop.

    This morning I did a stocktake. 15 varied blends in mason jars and 2 un-opened tins. This is because I have only been piping for 4 months and am trying out a spread of tobaccos. However I have discovered I really enjoy GL Pease’s Chelsea Morning as an early morning smoke, so I am ordering more of that. I think as I dial in on what I really like I will cellar more of those and smoke those more regularly. I will probably smoke up the blends that are just OK and then try others every now and then. Otherwise TAD will drive me crazy. If I re-wrote this it could read the same way and finish with PAD.

    I wish I could just settle for two or three blends it would make my cellaring simple. Telegraph hill was surprisingly excellent.

    Although I have a wide variety of blends cellared, I mainly smoke my 3 or 4 "base" blends. The others get smoked for variety on occasion. PS Luxury Twist Flake, F&T Cut Blended Plug, F&T Vintage, & C&D Crooner are my "go to" blends. All somewhat similar taste profiles, though each different enough to keep me interested.

    I mainly smoke Bayou Morning. I throw in other stuff occasionally, but Bayou Morning is pretty much my all day smoke.

    +1 on bayou morning. Solid vaper. I have a fair bit cellared. I can’t wait to taste in in a few years. I think it will smooth out very nicely.

    Long ago, about 40 years, I decided that I didn’t care for the prepackaged blends that much and started smoking only the pipe shop blends.
    I’d try a bit of this ‘n’ that, but I always came back to Tinderbox’s Black Russian blend. A lot of them have closed or moved away, so when I find one in my travels, I tend to stock up.

    While I have about 40 blends in rotation 80% of the time I end up choosing either Full Virginia Plug, St James Plug, Kendal Plug, Revor Plug, Ennerdale Flake or Germains Brown Flake & Rich Dark Flake and find that I keep returning to the same handful of tobaccos time & again.

    Usually the Lakelands loose stuff, No. 7 flake, Bosun, Best brown flake, Grasmere etc. Do like the aromas too.

    I usually only smoke 4 blends regularly.
    1. Louisiana Perique Flake (used to be Elizabethan Mixture until it's demise).
    2. St. Bruno RR
    3. Warhorse
    4. PS Sambucca cut with Prince Albert 50/50.

    I have 41 blends in my cellar. My regular rotation is somewhere around 20-30 blends. There are times when I forget about a blend and don't smoke it for a year or more.

    Though I have a lot of stuff opened/jarred/immediately accessible at any given time, I'll get on a kick once in a while where I'll smoke the same thing, or only a couple or three things, for days at a time. Sometimes weeks. Does that count?

    Early last fall, during a period where life was sending me an inordinate amount of distraction, I smoked nothing but Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic and Captain Black Copper for almost a month.

    I have found myself settling into a handful of specific blends...

    • Escudo
    • Plum Pudding Special Reserve
    • Boswell's Imperial English
    • Carter Hall


    Carter Hall has become a regular, morning commute pipe for me with my coffee.

    I like variety. I did however, just this past week, apply some discipline. I must had close to 50 tins open. I put around 40 away in 2 gallon zip locks and rubbermaid containers to help keep them moist for awhile. Forcing myself to empty out some tins and make my smoke area less cluttered.
