    Lighter Full-sized Pipes

    As a new pipe smoker (6 months now), I'm still trying a bunch of different blends and pipe brands. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as to good full-sized pipes that don't weigh very much. I find that I enjoy clenching but if I've got a heavier, full-sized pipe in my mouth, it...

    Virginia and cigarette taste?

    As a new pipe smoker (five months), I've been trying a bunch of different types of tobacco to get a sense of the different flavours of different tobacco types. Is it me, or does Virginia tobacco remind anyone else strongly of cigarettes? Is it my imagination? Both the taste and aroma remind me...

    Regular Tobacco Sales?

    As a new pipe smoker, I see that some online tobacco retailers, such as SmokingPipes and Cup 'o Joes seem to have very regular sales. I'm wondering if there are recurring annual sales that people here wait for to stock up. 4noggins, which is my preferred retailer, doesn't seem to have sales very...

    Why are Dunhills so Expensive?

    As a relatively new pipe smoker, I've been on the hunt for new pipes to fill out my collection. One of the things I just can't seem to get my head around is the prices of some pipes, particularly Dunhills. They don't seem to be much different from other, cheaper brands, such as Savinelli...

    Virginia taste

    As a very new pipe smoker (about two months now), I'm still developing my palate and sampling a bunch of tobaccos to figure out what I like. So far, I've only smoked aromatics and have found a few nice ones that agree with me. What I haven't been able to figure out is what Virginia tobacco...

    That Old School Aroma

    When I was a kid, a few relatives smoked pipes and I always knew when they were visiting by the smell of the house whenever I came home. I can't really describe the aroma in terms of what was in the tobacco, but it was that typical old school aroma that a lot of people I know associate with pipe...

    English blends for beginners

    Hi all, As a beginner pipe smoker, I have been focusing on aromatics and have not yet made the foray into English blends. I'm a bit nervous to be honest because I'm afraid of starting with something that's going to blow my head off. I know there are some threads about blends for beginners here...
