PostSubject: Smoking tobacco from a pipe   Thu Mar 27, 2014 10:54 pm

I've been dabbling into pipe smoking for whatever reason. Picked up a couple of Savinellis (Italian briars seemed to be a good start) and have given a few tobaccos a shot. I'm kind of gravitating to the Virginia/Perique blends at the moment, but also have some nice English, Balkan, Oriental blends on order.

Any aficionados in our midst?

I was when I was 20 years old but I didn't stick with it
(that was 1984ish)

Gave up around 1974 after 10 years. Inherited a pipe from my Grandfather when he died - lost it at a beach party, and then gave it up altogether - been 40 years smoke free this year.

You started smoking grandpa's pipe at age 9? Damn, that's something.  Wink

He didn't know about it then and it was mostly roll-your-owns (as was the tradition) with the occasional pipe thrown in. I was 14 when I inherited the pipe, though I don't think my mother knew...

Who you calling delinquent?

I didn't drink all his beer either! Didn't go near his rum either - but now that I appreciate it, I wish I had. Currently drinking Captain Morgan Private Selection - MmmmmmmMmmm

I would suggest you try Three Nuns,  It was particularly nice from a well broken in clay pipe

Uzi,

I've read about the three nuns, a classic and highly regarded. On my wish list...
