Drifted down from the Cigar forums. Hadn't messed with a pipe in decades. I was a cigarette smoker back then and just couldn't appreciate what a pipe had to offer. Stopped smoking cigarettes about a decade back. Smoked occasional cheap mini-mart cigars from time to time. Got into premium cigars last year when introduced to them and finally understood why people smoke premium cigars.
So, after learning enough about cigars here at CS to be dangerous and go my own way, I stopped here and got into the pipe thing too. I now own four briars and two corncobs. I've got enough pipe tobacco laid in for a while.
I like VA, Va/Pers, burley, and some of the aromatics. (Rum and Maple for example.) Haven't developed at taste for Lakita. Not to surprising as I haven't developed a liking to cigars over medium strength/flavor.
Glad to meet everyone here and learn about this passion.
