Well, it's not really as simple as that. Not all aromatics are created equal. There are the low quality, PG-soaked concoctions such as Captain Black that smell great but burn very hot and have no flavor. In my opinion, smoking blends like these is like putting a flavorless blowtorch in my mouth. Not much fun.All,
I noticed that many a pipe smoker starts with aromatics, but then moves on to non-aromatics. What gives? I for one love my aromatics, so I shall not be swayed by public opinion, I just don't get the contempt for my aromatics.
