9 of 10 bowls I can't finish. Everything seems to be going just peachy until I hit about the 1/4 left level. No relights, no bad tastes, just nice relaxiing smoke up to this point, but once I get down I can't stay lit, I can taste steam and goo, so I quit. When I empty things out, what remains in the bowl is gummy goop. I'm not sure how much slower I can stretch things. I mostly clench and use small sips along with the breath through the nose technique. I have this issue no matter what tobacco I am smoking, and in all three of the cobs I rotate through. I haven't been able to notice much of a difference in drying, whether I smoke right out of the tin, or let it sit out over night.
Any ideas what I may be doing wrong here, or is this a common thing?
