Any pipe smokers here?

I have recently fallen in love with smoking a pipe and sipping some bourbon. Any other enthusiast here?

Dang! I always hate to see Threads with no replies! I'm in!

I enjoyed pipes on and off over the years but haven't fired one up in a long while. I still have them and still have some tobacco. Pipes are a thing of beauty (at least the nice ones). The grain of the wood and the skill of the carving are on display. The contemplative nature of pipe smoking is one of the best attributes. I do miss it and have considered pulling them out.

Thanks for the Thread!

I have been a pipe smoker for about 35 years and I do enjoy a pipe full of tobacco with a good bourbon. I recently convert a young bourbon enthusiast to the pleasure of a pipe and a glass of bourbon while we were getting together in Bardstown.

Cool! What types/brands of tobacco do you enjoy?

I always liked the process of choosing tobacco. All those jars with so many scents!

I usually go with a cigar instead of my pipe. But yes pipe smoking is something I do when i take bourbon.Problem is I do not like flavored tobacco but almost every tobacco I found were flavored. I like to have raw tobacco and have the flavor applied after processing. Which is known as top dressing. The difference is subtle
