I visited my local baccy pusher today, and bought a tin of the very best (in my opinion) - Paul Olsen's My Own Blend.

I was recommende to try out the shops own special blend (FF Ingers Blend), a mild and pretty neutral tasting tobacco.

I remember when there was a very sweet and fruity tobacco called Royal Danish. That particular tobacco are now a part of the My Own Blend series, under the name Royal Blend. If you haven't tried it, I recommend you give it a go.
I think that Royal Blend is my favorite in the series - what's yours?

Another thing - how much do you spend on smoking pipe?

I think my daily cost is around $2.0

That's a good question.
I suppose it depends on a number of variables. Here in Canada the average 50g comes to about $22.50. I seem to get around 25-40 bowls per 50g, let's say 35 average. I smoke an average of 2 bowls a day (once on weekdays, several on weekends). Figure in pipe cleaners, lighting method (matches, lighter fluid, beeline)...
Yeah, a bit less than $2.00 / day.
Return on Value: A+!

Before Lane and Dunghill deserted us here in the USA, I mixed 5# of 965 with 1# of Nightcap. Now it is straight McCelland 5110.
As for how much I spend, I've never stopped to figure it out. I'd probably scare myself silly if I did.

My local shop has a blend that they call "Yorkshire", very much like Tinder Box's Wilshire.

Mild, sweet, good room note, and inexpensive.

I buy it by the pound.

When money is tight for me. My go to mix is Lane 1Q mixed 50/50 with Prince Albert. I really like the mix, and you could hardly beat the price.
