Pipe smoking.

Iv been a smoker for many years now and always wanted to try pipe smoking,
But not sure as to which pipe to get.

Are there any good websites with good information on pipe smoking and which pipes are best?

Also which brands of tobacco are good for pipe smoking.

Wow, I never thought that I would see a thread like this but I will try to help. First, here are some addresses for you to ponderclick here If by chance this doesn't work just go to yell.com and do a search for tobacconists. There are plenty of pipes to choose from but the ones that I like are briars. They cost more but in the long run are better and once they are broken in properly are a real joy.

As for tobacco, it is a personal choice in my opinion. I only smoke tobacco that is natural, by that I mean no artificial sweeteners or flavourings. These are considered stronger and somewhat hard to get used to but once you get used to the flavour there will not be any tongue bite or bitter flavour. Just remember that the choice of pipe tobacco is a personal one and you have to get on with it. Try several and then you will be able to settle on one. Always buy tobacco in tins or loose as these are better. The ones that I like are Dunhill 965, and Copes Escudo Navy Deluxe. The latter is one that you have to rub in the palm of your hand first as it is twist and it needs to be broken up first. Hope this helps. J.B.

For a first time pipe smoker Gold Block is very good with a mild cool taste.

Pipe smoking is some thing that I enjoy when someone else is smoking it!

But if I was going to buy a pipe, the image it portrays is all important. This is the image I would want click here

I smoked a pipe until 10yrs ago. I'd suggest a pack of FiltTips - small chalk shapes that fit in the bowl and reduce the chance of sludge going into your mouth. Used to change them once a day when I gave the pipe it's decoke. Gold Block a good place to start - I used to like Clan for a change (slightly aromatic).

When I used to smoke I especially enjoyed a Meerschaum pipe in the evening, it always seemed cooler than a briar.
