I always thought pipes looked cool and the idea of the pipe is up my alley obviously, but I'm not big on infused/flavored whatever so I've never smoked a pipe. Maybe I should change that, if for nothing else it would give me a reason to own some pipes.
I'm not a fan of infused cigars; however, there are multiple aromatic pipe tobacco's that I enjoy. With that said, there is a large variety of pipe tobacco's; traditional English blends, Balkan/Latakia blends, Virginia blends, Virginia/Perique blends, Virginia/Burley blends, Burley blends etc.
Also some blends just smoke better in a cob compared to briar or meerschaum. Blends such as Granger, Sir Walter Raleigh, Carter Hall etc. to me and many pipe smokers taste better in a cob, so it's always good to have a cob or 12 in your collection.
That sounds like a rabbit hole that goes on and on, that being said I did find myself "pipe shopping" last night. No purchases but man you guys are a bad influence.
It's as bad a rabbit-hole as cigars, trust me! I'm afraid to count my pipes and jars/tins of tobacco. I'd guess I'm at well over 80 pipes and 200 4oz jars of tobacco I've "cellared" away.
Yes, its a giant rabbit hole. I went from buying cigars frequently to buying tins of pipe tobacco and pipes frequently. In 5 years of smoking pipes, I currently have 40 pipes, over 70 sealed tins of tobacco, and 75 mason jars of tobacco that I smoke from. I went from smoking 3-5 cigars a week while enjoying a pipe about 3-5 times a month to smoking 3-5 cigars a month and smoking my pipes 3-5 times a week.
