I'm Alex, all the way from tropical Singapore. I never did liked cigarettes and cigars just floor me, but I've always found the contemplative pace of hookah smoking very enjoyable. So I figured it would be time for me to move on to the serious tobacco and get cozy with the pipe. My first experience was with a latakia blend that was way too strong for me (since I don't normally smoke). Right now, however, I'm enjoying my Da Vinci tobacco in a simple corn cob once every week. It definitely has a much fuller flavour than the one-dimensional taste of typical fruity hookah tobacco, and I hear that with better pipes and more sophisticated tobacco the experience can only get better. In the meantime, I'll be sure to share my pipe dreams with you folks!
