I lol'd.

I like the syrupy smoke myself. kinda like molasses dripping out of your mouth.

I started with aromatics and eventually tried English blends and find them more nuanced and less in your face with flavors. To each his own.

Wife just said our liquor cabinet smells awesome now that there are a bunch of tobaccos in it. Maybe I can baby step my way into an indoor smoke...

Had to come show you guys my new pipe! I wasn't in the market but my wife surprised me for Valentine's Day, along with an ounce of Virginia 1! Every now and then she really surprises me... No idea how she picked up the fact I wanted to try that tobacco, and the pipe is exactly my style.
