i am very new to pipe smoking and just received my first two pipes. One a simple churchwarden and the other a Savinelli Florence Smooth Pipe. I researched some tobaccos and came across Grandma's Apple Pie from E.A. Carey's Smokeshop in Akron, Ohio.
Perhaps in is because the pipe is new, but I loaded a quarter bowl in the Savinelli as part of the break in. This tobacco was less than aromatic and my family thought the house was on fire. It smokes harsh and somewhat bitter. Absolutely no hint of any apple flavoring.
Am I missing something here?
