Started smoking a pipe around 2015 never new you could age tobaccos. Took a deep dive down the the Rabbit hole of all the different pipe tobaccos and blends.
Started sampling all different types of tobaccos at first me and my brother started with the aromatics but I lean more towards a english and natural tobacoos this is not set in stone cause I like what I like.
The cool thing about smoking a pipe is there is no rules I am kinda just making it up as I go.
Smoked my Dr grabow for a couple of years after 2015 and read a lot about pipe smoking and aging to tobaccos , around this time I had zeroed in on my all time favorite and that would be McClellands Frog Mortons cellar. Cellared up some McClellands stave aged virgians tins and some frog morton cellar with a randon assortment of bulk english blends and then kinda just got out of smoking my pipe but I new she would be there when I called and hopefully a better understanding of how cellaring tobaccos changes its profile.
Well fast forward to 2020 at the beginning of Covid 19 , the way the news was making it sound was we were all dead and the end was near. I was out of work and the sky was falling and I had plenty of time on my hands. So naturally I remembered about my pipe that I have not touched in years and all that aged tobacco that I was cellaring.
Well as I sat on My front porch felt the end of planet earth as I new it was near I packed a bowel of the best tasting smoke I had ever tasted. And suddenly I felt at ease as if I was fine and everything would be ok. The comfort that pipe brought that evening will never be forgotten.
So as the world lost its mind me and my pipe new better.
