I'm a big pipe smoker myself and have turned many friends on to the hobby. I only have a modest collection of pipes at the moment but all of them are well loved and used regularly. I'll often pair different tobaccos with beers. (A friend of mine even created a cocktail to go with Black Cavendish.)
It's one of my many 'old man' hobbies according to my wife.

Anybody into the english blends? I had a tin of Latakia from either McBarrens or McClellans at one time, broke in a pipe with it and only smoked it in that pipe. Very unique flavor, enjoyed while it lasted which was a very long time but never bought another tin.

The only Latakia blend that comes to mind for me right now is McClelland Oriental No. 1.

Really liked the black pepper finish on that one.

My all time favorite is Torben Dansk - Blue Note. But if I had to stick with one line of tobacco only, I'd be happy with any Frog Morton.

That might be what it was. It's been a few years.

Think I need to find a local tobacco shop and start trying new tobaccos again. There are plenty of places online to shop but nothing like opening a jar and checking it out ahead of time. When I lived in southern Ca many years ago there was a mom and pop tobacco shop I frequented often. One day I was sniffing the jars and the mama told me they put different tobaccos around their house like you would potpourri. I thought it pretty cool at the time, but not so much now.

I've read about Frog Morton and it always sounded interestinig (maybe the cool name) What's it like?

It's been way too long for me to recall any specific details but I always remember them to be a very smooth, silky touch of sweet, and not overpoweringly aromatic smoke. No one thing stands out in my memory of any of the Frog Morton's except that I consistently enjoyed them all.

The problem with living where I do is there aren't any tobacco shops around. Well that's probably not completely true since I haven't really checked recently. I think the last time I bought tobacco locally it was at a mall store called John (something). Not bad, they have a few cigars and bulk pipe tobacco but no "specialty" tins. And no Frog Morton. Looks like internet shopping is going to be the win, again.
