    Newbie Seeking Advice

    Mc VBC was the first aromatic where I went "this is it i taste what I smell". It has one of the best flavors out there but its on top of a very bland tobacco. Still i smoke it often and its smell always brings me back to that aha moment. :)

    Best Blend With Burley and Latakia

    Patton's Dark and Stormy is an excellent Burley/Lat blend with some cigar leaf as well. The very nutty almost Carter Hall type burley is a sharp contrast to the smokey latakia and spicy cigar.

    Bad experience with tongue bite

    Wouldn't the stem get hot or even warm if the smoke was hot enough to burn your tongue?

    Corn cob blah!!!!

    All my cobs smoked great fresh EXCEPT the last one which was a Country Gentleman. it was like the cob was not fully cured and the stain on the inside was rank. I now break difficult pipes in with a SG rope or Sutliff Frosty Mint that stuff covers over any smell haha.

    My Second Homemade Pipe

    I see what you guys mean about the shank being a little funky near the bowl, thinning it out would definitely make it look more normal but I kinda think the current look gives it a unique 70's danish kinda feel, not sure what I think about it.. mso - yeah I like the bit too, just needs to be...

    My Second Homemade Pipe

    Hey thanks for all the praise and criticism. More off the shank you say tschiraldi? I agree and will do. Shallow bowl but smokes great. Made myself sick last night smoking some SG Dark Birds Eye in it, yikes that stuff has some serious nicotine!

    My First Pipe

    Anthony: I love your homemade pipes! Do you still have the pickax? How did it smoke? Also love your Sav320. I would like to try to make that style but where would I get a stem? Yes the block came pre-drilled.

    My First Pipe

    Ha, I did not make the stem. I ordered the briar from Vermont freehand and it came with the generic stem :) Thanks for all the nice words. I'll post some more pics when I get a chance. I am waiting for my wax to come so I can give it one more sand , stain and buff. First time ever really...

    Aromatic Vs. Non-Aromatic Tobacco

    Its probably just because the people more likely to review or discuss tobaccos have delved more deeply into the more complex tobacco. The casual aro smoker just doesn't see the need to say that Vanilla black cavendish has a great natural vanilla flavor on top of a neutral tasting leaf. BTW I...
