I rolled my own with pipe tobacco after I got tired of spending a half hour smoking a pipe. I'd switch it up with cigarette tobacco occasionally. I just used Zig Zags. For tobacco, I generally went with whatever I liked at the time in the smoke shop.
Not sure where you are, but every tobacconist I've visited would let you sample the tobaccos free of charge. They know you're going to buy a few ounces anyway, so it's no problem to let you sample.
