I've been an on again off again pipe smoker for about twenty years now. I prefer straight Virginias (HH Pure Virginia, Capstan Blue, Mac Baren VA #1), Virginia heavy blends (VA/OR, VA/PR), and the occasional Mac Baren Vanilla Cream or Original Choice if I feel like an aromatic.
My go to tobacco is Mac Baren's Mixture Scottish. I usually rotate that blend in with whatever VA's I'm into. I've tried over the past twenty years to like English blends, but I've finally given up. Latakia just doesn't work for me.
I currently live in Omaha Nebraska and work in IT. I'm a U.S. Coast Guard veteran.
