I just recently starting pipe smoking. My first and only pipe so far is a Missouri Meerschaum Corn Cob pipe. I don't know if I am doing something incorrectly, but I taste the pipe while I'm smoking. It taste like I am smoking the pipe. I have tried several different tobacco's and I always have that same taste at some point during my smoke. It's sorta bitter, and taste like the pipe smells. Anyone else have similar experiences or any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
