You may enjoy pipe smoking because it enables you to try many flavors of pipe tobacco that you would never be able to find by simply smoking cigarettes. It is fun to sample many varieties of pipe tobacco and choose a new favorite. One way to try more new flavors at once in an economical way is to purchase a pipe tobacco sampler.
It can be risky to spend a lot of money to purchase a packet of a pipe tobacco flavor that you have never smoked before. If you do not like it, you have wasted all your money and will not be able to get a refund.
By purchasing a pipe tobacco sampler you will be exposed to several varieties of pipe tobacco flavors. It is more likely that you will find several that you enjoy. Your samples will not be very large compared to the size of a regular packet, but you will not be wasting as much money.
It is realistic to assume that you will not like all of the pipe tobacco flavors in the sampler and you may even dislike some of them intensely. When this happens, you can throw out the ones you dislike or you can give them to other pipe smokers.
The benefit of trying a pipe tobacco sampler is that you may encounter some pleasant new flavors that you would never have thought of trying. Even if you dislike half of the samples, you will still have some that you like. Then you can start to purchase them in larger amounts. For a person who is new to pipe smoking, this is a good way to start.
