Hi, I started on pipes in 89 with a few of my navy pals and loved it. I've been out of touch for 20 years. I went to the pipe shop in the mall. The guy said my old Savenelli was a good pipe. He sold me some pipe cleaner but said it didn't need anything and I was good to go as is. I cleaned it anyway. I've tried various pipe tobacco's from their shop for several months. About 6 bowls in all. Nothing tastes good. Everything bites. I went to a small cigar shop and they recommended I try a quality pipe tobacco like Dunhill, Davidoff, or Peterson. I looked online and just about lost it with the variety! I thought about starting with three different sampler tins of Dunhill. Aromatic? English? Morning? Evening ... ? Again, I'm lost. I intend to be mostly an end of day evening smoker. No bite, nice room smell. Nice in the mouth. Any help would be appreciated.
