Where can I buy online? Stores around here no longer carry pipe tobacco.
I like a burley & black mild blend

Mike: Don't know where you're located, but here in NY, I buy from Ron's Smoke Shop ( There are plenty of other places, but I've had good luck with them--fast, courteous and reliable, which are hard qualities to find these days. I've got quite a few pipes I've picked up over the years, including some nice ones like a couple of Savanelli Autographs. Almost too nice to smoke!

I have several pipes laying around somewhere but I'm not normally a pipe smoker. I just can't get my tongue broke in. I've heard the more aromatic tobaccos tend to bite the tongue more so I stayed away from them. I'll get the urge for a pipe and buy a package of tobacco. I'll try to limit my pipe smoking to two or three pipes a day trying to let my tongue get used to it.

Invariably I'll give the pipe up with only 2/3 of the tobacco pouch smoked because my tongue is so raw. Do you have any tips for me for getting my tongue used to the pipe?

I don't like any smell with my tobacco other that of the tobacco. No cherry, vanilla, bayberry, or the likes. Don't like tobacco's with a sharp taste.

I also like milder blends that don't bite. Burley, Burley & Black, Burley & Black Cavendish, Golden Burley.

Some pipe tobacco's are just to God-Awful strong for me.

Right now I have two tins of Admiral's Choice Burley & Black that I like. CVS had them on sale for $1.50 for 8 oz tins.

I did many years ago. Gave it up a long, long time ago. Used to smoke that Borkum Riff, Mapleton and Rum & Maple. But if you held a gun to my head and told me I could only have one more pipe tobaccy smell for the rest of my life, it would have to be Half and Half.

One of many...Try Google search for"pipe tobacco",also on line Native American smoke shops prices are almost impossible to beat as a major portion of any tobacco cost is tax and they are exempt.
