Retired, smoking a pipe since college. I've tried everything from the drugstore blends to English. After years of looking have settled into Havana Daydream as my daily smoke. Occasional bowl full of something else such as Key Largo or a nice Englilsh. This website has helped and enhanced my pipe smoking experience.
