I recently started smoking a pipe. I decided to stop into Port tobacco to see what kinds of smoke the place had. The first time there was some lady with the coolest damn accent ever, she helped me out with alot of ""the beginner"" questions I had, made some suggestions on the more popular pipe tobacco they sold and sent me on my way. I felt very comfortable there. The next time I went in w/ one of my buddies from the mill... We started smoking pipes together, and there was a man at the counter. The Man was very nice, never made us feel pressured, tought us some more about pipe care, and got me hooked on my newest tobacco. I will go back there soon, I hope this review is not to pre-mature for only being in there twice... but I really liked the place.
