Never thought of that, but it was true for me. I tried aromatic and didn't like them. I like Balkans and English blends best.Stab in the dark here on the diagnosis but sounds like you may be making problems with the moisture and the cavendish. Feels like new pipers are steered towards aromatics in hopes to get more flavor but in reality something like Elizabethan Mixture or Nightcap might be a better place to start.
Agree. Try different drinks, even cool water in between puffs. If you happen to just not enjoy the taste of burning tobacco, the pipe might not be for you. Before you throw in the towel, I'd try more blends.But some Carter Hall and ditch the aromatics. Drink some coffee or tea with the pipe, I think they compliment it well. I liked smoking a pipe from the very first bowl but I enjoy smoking period. Do you enjoy cigars?
“Used to be” is the sad, harsh truth..... at least in my neck of the woods. It seems about four years ago.... the all suddenly vanished, and I had to order them online too.OTC = over the counter. These used to be blends that were readily available at drug/grocery stores.
For the record, I loved beer from first sipI remember my first beer being kind of the same, just a glass of bitter water. Now I love beer and search for new ones al the time. I was wondering if pipe smoking is just like that?
Yep. The closest Walgreens to me still has some Dr Grabow pipes and some Captain Black, but that’s about it.“Used to be” is the sad, harsh truth..... at least in my neck of the woods. It seems about four years ago.... the all suddenly vanished, and I had to order them online too.
