So I have been smoking about 3 bowls a day on average since I discovered the wonderful world of English blends back in November. Before that, I would smoke about a bowl a week or less. I have discovered that I am getting pipe smoking burnout. I am not tasting the flavors of milder blends so I reach for the heartier blends to get it back. I think I am in saturation mode as the heartier blends are washed out as well. I think some use Virginia blends during these periods. However, I think I need to cut back in the amount of times I smoke so that pipe smoking doesn't become routine and dull. It needs to be savored like a good Scotch or steak. I think part of my increase is I want to try all these blends out there.
Anyone else go through this?
