I smoke about 21/25 bowls a week. Less on weekdays and more on weekends.
Is it just me or does the first bowl in the morning always seem to taste the best. Most of the flavors are accentuated and seems to taste better than the same tobacco smoked at the end of the day.
Maybe those that smoke one bowl a day get that better flavor whenever they smoke regardless of the time of day.
Curious what others have noticed.

Yeah, I don't know why, but that first bowl, with coffee, seems pretty special. I tend to select bold blends with little or no toppings, although something on the sweet side goes well for me too. It must have something to do with breaking the overnight abstinence. Nicotine and caffeine. What's not to like?!

I normally start my day with a milder Virginia flake( F&T Cut Virginia Plug among others). My next pipe will mostly be a dark Virginia flake ( Astleys no 44) My next two bowls are interchangeable. It may be a vaper( Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls) or a vabur ( Mac Baren Old Dark Fired)it depends on the mood for those two.
My system works good for me as my mouth never gets tired. I also drink coffee till around 4pm and then iced tea with Stevia or some diet soda. I have been on an AW diet root beer kick lately.

I'm an afternoon and evening smoker. I'm not particularly driven by nicotine, though I like the buzz when it arrives. A pipe occurs to me some time after lunch.

I usually don't smoke until I get home from work in the evenings. However, on a weekend morning, I love that first pipe with a big cup of coffee.

My mornings start when most folks are still in bed so, I only get morning smokes on my weekends (Fri-Sat). My routine is not that much different than cigrmaster. A VA with coffee launches any good weekend.

I never smoke in the morning typically. If I’m at the cottage or camping, I often have a post breakfast bowl, usually a VaOr like Cairo or McClelland Classic Samsun

Usually don’t smoke early in the mornings as I don’t get up very early. Usually 11 or later before I have my first bowl. Typically it is a mild VA. Rest of the day it depends on what mood I’m in.

Absolutely yes for me. I get up 6 or 7 on the weekends just for that first bowl. After dinner or evenings don’t seem to touch it.

Same here. The first bowl does taste the best. Probably because your pallet has had time to neutralize since it has been around 8-12 hours since your last bowl. Your mouth is fresh per say. That's my opinion

Can't start my day without Escudo and black coffee. I smoke it in a very old thimble size Dublin by Stanwell. At least 2 bowls and a cup, you may now approach and speak.

I only wish I could fit the time to smoke in the morning. Except on weekends, I don't have the time M-F and my job doesn't allow smoking(lots of flammable material).
