Hi All -- forgive any breach of etiquette if this is the wrong place to post an introduction.
Long time cigar smoker just making a transition to pipes. Looking to learn as much as I can and get to know some of you. I am located in the northwest corner of the county.
Eric

Welcome!

I recommend you trying Semois, McClelland Dominican Glory Maduro, Cornell diehl old joe krantz for stronger cigar like taste and nicotine.. I suggest you search the forum search on the right side of screen for cigar like tobacco, there are multiple old threads that have many posts about cigar smokers switching to the pipe, and what they experienced . If I knew how to post the links I would .

Welcome Eric.
I'd strongly encourage you to reconsider your business model.
Instead of an "either or" approach, I'd recommend you take a "Both" approach! :puffy:
I've been an avid cigar guy for over 35 years. Have smoked the pipe a few times a year during this period.
About a year ago I got completely immersed in the pipe world but never gave up on cigars.
I found that my pipes and the associate tobacco take up way more real estate in my mancave than my cigar humidors and associated accoutrements do.
Just my $.02

Eric welcome!
Ask as many questions as you can and want. The sheer volume of knowledge from some guys on here is staggering. If you feel overwhelmed, don't worry - it goes with the territory of learning the pipe!

Welcome! You are gonna love it here. My opinion may not be worth a hoot but I'll offer an alternative view: Rather than trying to recreate the cigar experience with the pipe, go completely different and appreciate the differences. I like cigars and pipes because they are different.

Welcome aboard. Second the recommendation for Semois and add Stormfront and Peretti Cuban Mixture to the list.

Thanks everyone -- When I said "transition to a pipe" I didn't mean to imply I was giving up cigars. I'm not sure that will every happen!
@Alan73 and @theloniousmonkfish, thanks for the recommendations!
Eric

Welcome aboard. I agree with the above advice about being in both the pipe and cigar worlds. There are times when only a cigar will hit the spot, and of course there are those times when a pipe is just the thing.
By the way, what part of the Northwest do you hail from?

Welcome to the forum!...........

I tend to smoke a lot more cigars in the summer months, and transition back to the pipe come fall/winter......... :puffy:

Welcome Eric!...I've never been much of a cigar guy. I did smoke cigarettes for 20+ years and have smoked a pipe off and on for about 7. July 9th was my last cig, and it's been nothing but my pipe, since then. Anyway, welcome to the forum. There are a lot of great guys here and the information is priceless in regards to the pipe. Enjoy!

Welcome. Just start reading old threads. It will help a lot. Anything that interests you, click on it. Rabbit holes galore. When you are done, you'll be a little more knowledgeable and a little worse for wear. But you'll love it.

Welcome!
There are wonderful subtleties to pipe tobacco that are unique to smoking tobaccos in a pipe, just as there are delights in the taste of tobaccos in a cigar -- as others suggest, each can be enjoyed for its own merits. So I hope you will learn to take delight in the various pipe tobaccos. That said, as a crossover blend from cigar leaf to pipe tobacco, I'd recommend GL Pease's KEY LARGO.
