Hi Guys, completely new to pipe smoking, but it has been something that has interested me for some time now.
So i just thought I would start and see how it goes, bought a Parker pipe from a shop nearby me for around £40 and started with a tin of Ashton Smooth sailing, as it was recommended as a nice light tobacco that is slightly aromatic.
Smoke my pipe for around 4-5 times and really enjoying the feeling and technique involved. I imagined the tobacco i bought to be a little more sweet and flavoursome than it is, to me it just tastes like tobacco but perhaps I am smoking to fast or something else. Im new so not really sure yet, I think i was just wondering with it being an "aromatic" is that more for the people in the room with me to smell, or should I be tasting some sort of different flavour? apologies if that is a stupid question
I am also quite young and want to break the stigma that pipe smoking is only for balding beardy guys.
Aero's are more of a tobacco for others in the room and not so much for you. Some have a little more flavor and body but not like trying a pure VA, VA/PER, etc. etc.
Best advice is take your time. If it goes out just relight it. You'll get the hang of it soon enough. Most of all, if you have any questions, please hit us up. There is a wealth of information around here.
