Ok so I tried and failed. This is my first time attempting to smoke a pipe properly.
Pipe used: Meerschaum I bought in Iraq in my deployment.
Tobacco: Mac Baren vanilla cream
So I opened my tin. WOW did it smell great. Packed my bowl using the 3 step method and off I went.
First it started off well but after 3 puffs I immediately had issues.
Throughout the entire smoke which lasted about 20 minutes I would get a little ting in my mouth as if I were eating some spicey food. Also it tasted nothing like vanilla. (I do not think it is suppose to though please correct me if I am wrong). I had to relight about 8 or so times which leads me to believe is the reason for the short smoke. However the bowl never got too hot to hold (Success).
I felt like I had to constantly puff on it because if I did not the bowl would die. Also am I suppose t have a cherry in the bowl during the entire smoke? If so that didn't happen either.
Will wait for tips before my next smoke. Thank you in advance.
