    Hello all. My name is Thom and just starting to take up the pipe puffing. Have my first pipe on the way and am anxious to get started enjoying the vast array of tobaccos.

    You've definitely knocked on the right door, Thom. Take a seat and puff a few! You'll be sliding down the PAD/TAD slope into abject poverty in no time.

    Comes with the territory, Shawn. Tells us how she feels after you buy that $600 Castello instead of the new chair for the living room.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the pipe smoking world and thought I would drop a hello to all.

    I recently acquired my grandfathers old Tanganyika Block Meerschaum pipe and purchased a Bjarne Viking Sandblasted Briar Pipe of my own. I thought it would be a fun hobby to unwind from the stressfull life of a graduate student and I've always enjoyed the smell of a good pipe tobacco.

    I've been smoking around 2 months now, not much, usually 3 or 4 bowls a week, just to relax with. I feel I've gotten it down pretty effectively as far as packing, tamping, and lighting at this point, I don't struggle with any of them much any more.

    I was curious as to what some of your favorite pipe tobaccos are to smoke? Any that are exceptionally highly favored among most in the forums? Thanks for any recommendations and ideas!

    Best,

    Zac

    Welcome Zac!
    I believe everyone has their favorites among pipe tobacco, and highly flavored is very subjective. There are a lot of flavorful, hearty tobaccos that are totally unflavored as far as additives. There are also quite a few solid aromatics that have a following around here. A guy probably couldn't go wrong with Boswell aromatics, and I would reccomend trying an english style tobacco to get an idea of what latakia (a popular condiment tobacco) tastes like.

    As far as my own current favorites, Esoterica Tilbury, Mac Baren Navy Flake, and Cornell and Diehil 3 friars are all getting some regular flame in my rotation at the moment, but that is a constantly changing list.

    Hi Zac. I smoke three different tobaccos, depending on my mood. I've tried more than I can remember, but keep coming back to these three.
    Two are made by Peter Stokkebye. Luxury Navy Flake, and Luxury English Blend. My all day smoke is a Lane aromatic bulk blend called, RLP-6. My favorite drug store brand is Prince Albert. This hobby is never dull, as there are hundreds and hundreds of blends available. Good luck in your quest.

    I originally posted in the New Puffer Fish thread I realized there was a dedicated pipe one. So I'm gonna copy and paste for convenience.


    Hi everybody! I have been smoking an occasional cigar for a few years, nothing serious. I started to do some research on starting a collection and found this forum. I actually decided to try a pipe instead. The initial costs were more in my price range. I got a MM corn cob, some frog Morton, a Czech tool, and some pipe cleaners all for around $25. I should be receiving them in a few days. I can't wait to try it out! I just need to get my wife over the "what are you popeye?" thing. Lol.

    Congratulations, Jon. "You've taken your first step into a larger world". There's a lot of great information in here and great people, too. Watch out for the TAD and PAD. You can ease the symptoms but it never goes away.

    I left this for a few months on purpose because I was rude to the members on this side when I first started posting here.

    Hi pipers, I'm Warren & I've only been smoking pipes for a short time. My other half (Tashy) is a member here also and has a little more experience with the pipe than me but we are both newbs in reality compared to our cigar experience.

    There are an awful lot of genuine & profoundly helpful people in this pipe section, I pay homage to those that have helped me on this journey which is most of you. Smoke on people & may every bowl be astounding.
    Refuses to remain the Droid they were all looking for.

    I joined up awhile back, my computer crashed and I lost all my stuff. I had forgotten about this place till recently. Guess I need to reintroduce myself.

    I'm JK and I've been smoking a pipe on and off for a year or so. I now have become hooked. I've got a Missouri Meerschaum Cob and a Peterson 999 Army. I've mainly smoked over the counter stuff like Prince Albert and Half and Half.

    I'm looking to broaden my horizons a bit both pipe wise and tobacco wise.

    I'm open to suggestions on either. This looks to be a nice place to learn.
