Hello fellow smokers,
I've been having much trouble getting into pipe smoking because I expected it to taste somewhat good,
which at least for me didn't.
In fact I'm getting either no taste whatsoever or I'm getting a digusting ash taste.
Of course I did not expect it to be an awesome experience right of the bat, which is why I spent the last two
weeks informing myself as much as I could about pipe smoking, tobaccos etc.
I've made a post once about this issue and did get some tips. I tried different tobaccos (5 different so far), I

I smoked the pipe maybe twelve times.
Could it be the pipe? I do not think that I just have to sensitize my tasting sense, because I think I should at
least get some taste other than ash.
I am somewhat desperate and frustrated, anything I might have overlooked / not tried?
Thank you, Jonas
