Hello all. I recently picked up pipe smoking to replace a cannabis addiction and I am happy to say it worked very well for me. I have about 6 different tobaccos and 2 pipes. I decided that as someone who does not smoke cigarettes that I just do not like strong english blends like dunhill standard mixture. I did not see a sub forum dedicated to asking for tobacco recommendations so I will ask here. can anyone suggest a flavored tobacco with low to medium nicotine with a good collection of vanillas, creams, nutty flavors? I have lane limited 1-Q and I do taste some vanilla in it. it is maybe just a tiny bit too weak and empty. looking for something with more sweets and more thick smoke but not too much headache from the nicotine. any suggestions?

Welcome to the Patch! Under "Pipe & Tobacco Talk" - the sub-forum "Tobacco & TAD" (Tobacco Acquisition Disorder), you will find lots of tobacco discussion. But not to worry, someone will come to the rescue. I'm not a big Aromatic fan so I have nothing much to go by. I have been smoking some Newminster #2 Smooth Rum, that I was gifted from a generous forum member, and I like it. I'm sure you will learn a lot here.
May we live, not by our fears but by our hopes; not by our words but by our deeds; not by our disappointments but by our dreams.
Welcome, rooted. The Briar Patch is one site, that if you stick with us, you will find lots of help and suggestions...mine is try Butternut Burley. It is a mild aro that I find is an all day smoke for me. Something you might find delightful.
So as the others have said...welcome. Congratulations on breaking your addiction to pot. You'll find that it is a pleasure to not be looking over your shoulder and sweating a traffic stop.

Welcome to the Patch, looking forward to reading your posts. Try Sutliff Molto Doce but air dry accordingly. Wilke #191.....one of my top 3 favorite aromatics. By all means Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic........it shocked me for sure!!! You have so many to try, any questions feel free to ask.

welcome from Charleston, WV! i love cherry, so Cult's Blood Red Moon is a favorite
She came in with a smile and a pipe. A study of contradictions, she seemed to understand more than most. Eyes shining with humor and a comforting, easy to talk to demeanor. She was a goddess in mortal skin. She raised a glass and said, "Confusion to the memory of Newton."

Two pipes - not much time for a pipe to rest between smokes. You could do what I did and buy lots of briar, with the attendant hit to the wallet, or stock up on Missouri Meerschaum corn cobs and buy briar at your leisure.
As for tobacco, Lane 1-Q doesn't get a whole lot of love considering it's the best selling pipe tobacco but I think it's not a bad general smoke when one just wants to smoke - think Stephen King vs Dostoyevsky.. I've grown fond of Cult Militia lately, just know that it, along with Cult Blood Red Moon, are only available in tins.
Sutliff is know for their aros - might be a bit goopy sometimes, but you can find winners in their collection.
Try smokingpipes.com and tobaccoreviews.com to help narrow down and sample what you might like.

I think Butternut Burley would satisfy the flavors you're looking for. It hits those flavor notes. I'm not that fond of aros, but I really enjoy that one sometimes with afternoon coffee.
I suggest you try a few different small sized samples of different things. You'll get a better idea of what works for you and what doesnt. When I started I thought I'd like aros more so that's what I started with. I was wrong.
