Smoking a pipe is very pleasurable to many people because they are able to sample a wide variety of different tobacco flavors that are not available in cigars or cigarettes. The pipe smoker enjoys picking out the exact flavor he wants when he smokes his pipe. One way to try out a lot of interesting flavors is to get a pipe tobacco sampler.
A sampler is an economical way to try new flavors because no one wants to spend money on a pack of tobacco that they might not like once they try it. If you buy a package of pipe tobacco that is new to you and then it turns out that you do not like it, you will not be able to get a refund at the tobacco store. Therefore it is wiser to purchase a package of samples so you can try many tobaccos without wasting your money.
With a pipe tobacco sampler you can savor several different flavors at the same time. Different tobacco shops are likely to have different samples, so you can be exposed to a lot of new flavors if you visit several of them.
If you come across some flavors in your pipe tobacco sampler that you do not like, you can give them away to somebody else. Chances are that a different pipe smoker may enjoy the varieties that you do not like.
A pipe tobacco sampler can introduce you to new flavor varieties that you might not have purchased. Even if you dislike half of the tobaccos that you sample, you may find some that you really enjoy a lot. That can help you in the long run to avoid wasting money on purchasing large packages to sample. Sampler packages are especially useful for new pipe smokers.
