I'm a newbie pipe smoker with a question:

I like the flavor of a good-quality, medium-strength cigar,

particularly the first couple of puffs. Is there a pipe

tobacco out there that comes close to that, or are they just

two different animals?

Welcome to the forum.....You only need to go out and buy a tin of Frog Morton....a pipe tobacco made of 90% cigar leaf, or at least it tastes like it.

Actually Frog Morton does not contain any cigar leaf.
There are quite a few cigar leaf blends available. I have smoked some, and although I like a few of them, I have never had a cigar leaf pipe blend that tasted the same as a cigar. Pipes/Pipe tobacco and cigars are two different animals.
Here are a few blends that contain cigar leaf:

Hearth & Home Stogie

Cornell & Diehl Billy Budd

G.L. Pease Robusto

McClelland Cigar Blends (Dominican Glory and Dominican Glory Maduro)

These are just a few blends, there are more out there.

Then why does Frog Morton smell(well as the guy on Youtube describes it, that the tin note smells like, Stink & Shame, Burning Feet, 4 Day Old Underwear, Butt Crack) and taste just like a cigar??????? The video below is a funny parody which alot of people actually believed until he did part 2.
