    Filtration System Options?

    Agreed. It's an odd thing. In one of the whiskey communities I follow, their motto is, "The best whiskey is the whiskey you like, the way you to drink it."

    Filtration System Options?

    I try to never let my pipes get hot (even when using filters). And if they do get hot, I put them down and come back to once they've cooled. I can also smoke my pipes with only a handful of relights. So I don't actually believe it to be an issue of technique. The difference is, when I use...

    Filtration System Options?

    I'll offer two answers to this. One, I think there are some of us whose pH is such that we're just more prone to tongue bite, no matter of technique. But two, speaking for myself, I didn't get into smoking a pipe because one day I woke up and said, "Oh man. How awesome would it be if I mastered...

    School me About Ideal Humidity Levels in Briar

    I have nothing of substance to offer. I'd simply like to say this thread has been an enjoyable read. Cheers.

    Filtration System Options?

    I only smoke pipes that accept 9mm activated charcoal pipe filters. For me, they have zero impact on taste and have completely eliminated tongue bite. The only drawback is you'll (mostly) need to order pipes from Europe, where 9mm is far more popular than the U.S. Two sites I've used that I...

    An Odd Question About Virginias

    None that I'm aware of.

    How Dry is Too Dry?

    This is exactly what I do. During northeast summers, the humidity doesn't get low enough to effectively dry tobacco.

    An Odd Question About Virginias

    To answer some of the questions that have been asked: It has nothing to do with retrohaling. I get this sensation on exhale as well. It definitely has nothing to do with nicotine. I've smoked cigarettes, cigars and vaped. Never had this experience before with any of those, much higher...

    An Odd Question About Virginias

    I don't think it's specific to red Virginias, but I've also not paid close enough attention to which Virginias. I'll definitely look into that. ?

    An Odd Question About Virginias

    I've found that Virginia tobaccos, including those that aren't pure Virginias, but for which Virginias are a significant portion of the blend, sting my nostrils. It's not that I find their aroma unpleasant. It actually physically irritates me. I've never had this experience with Aromatics...

    I do not get satisfied from pipe like cigar

    I've smoked cigars for nearly 25 years and I'd mostly agree. Cigars really only fall into one of two categories for me; Cigars I Like and Cigars I Don't Like. Granted, some are stronger, some are more mild. But with regards to taste... they all just taste like cigars.

    I do not get satisfied from pipe like cigar

    I too began as a cigar smoker. Probably smoked cigars for nearly twenty years before even considering a pipe. That said, I found it required me to shift my mindset to truly appreciate pipes. There won't be clouds of smoke. There won't be a significant nic hit. So long as that's what you want...

    Tasty aromatics

    Cult Blood Red Moon It not only tastes delicious, but I've personally found that Cult tobaccos burn the easiest and bite the least, of all the popular aromatics. Cheers.

    Any Advice? Killer Tongue Bite

    Yeah. Roger is a die-hard Blue. I try to catch that show whenever I remember, especially when Jon Oliver is on, as it's usually the funniest episode of the year.
