I am a relatively new pipe smoker, and today I had my first "perfect" smoking session. I was on my way to Home Depot to pick up some materials for a pipe rack I'm building. I was listening to some Irish instrumental music with my window rolled down. I was smoking my Rocky Donegal #69 with some Boswell's No Bite Delight. It was perfect. I only had to light it once, the smoke was thick, the flavors were full, and I reached what could only be described as pipe zen. I smoked the bowl all the way to the bottom with no maintenance. For new smokers, I know that keeping the pipe going can be a challenge until you really develop your ability. It was like the planets aligned perfectly. Wonderful experience.
