    I used to get the Pipeworks & Wilke High Hat blend but since Carole retired and sold the business I haven't tried the "new" owner's blends (was Vermont - now Massachusetts).

    Only very occasionally do I enjoy a pipeful. Usually when I'm in the woods (NOT during deer season). ;-)

    There is a lot of technique to pipe smoking. A decent pipe really helps, and beginners often don't know how to select a good pipe. Then there is proper packing of the tobacco, initial light, knowing how and when to tamp, and smoking at a measured pace. If one doesn't pack correctly, smokes too fast, or doesn't tamp correctly, they will most likely smoke too hot and burn their tongue. Once you learn all the techniques, they quickly become second nature and the pipe smoking will be substantially more rewarding.
    Pipe smoking is definitely a learned skill. Back when I tried it, I worked for the publisher who owned Cigar Afficionado magazine. I had people show me how to choose a pipe, what blends to consider, how to pack it, how to light it, how to smoke it, and how to clean and care for the pipe. That greatly helped.

    If it weren't for other considerations, mainly family, I could easily be a regular pipe smoker.

    I have several briar pipes and a meerschaum. I'm a cigar smoker, but when the weather is cool, I love a good aromatic blend in a pipe. Since I smoke aromatics, my wife enjoys the room note.
