Default Re: New Pipe Smoker With A Question? Ask an Old Fart

Dearest Old Farts (I use that term endearingly)
I have a couple of questions for you after my first bowl (after giving up on pipes a year ago)
1) How much if at all do you exhale through your nose?
2) I was using Virginia flake and this packing technique, but I found that it didn't burn the sides as much as the center. Is this due to the packing method? Or just something that happens? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9tzmB0JInY

1) I hardly exhale through my nose at all. alot of pipe smokers use whats called the breath smoking method of pipe smoking which basically means that you draw the smoke into your mouth and then lightly exhale partially through the pipe and partially through your lips. The idea being that it keeps the pipe lit better nd you get a more even burn.
2) I think the breath smoking method may help slightly with this but it really just takes practice in packing, lighting, and smoking, to get it right also experiment with rubbing the tobacco out partially or fully.

I also highly recomend the frank method of filling your pipe, hes got vids on youtube.

All the flavor is in the snork for me.


snork
-v (snork) Mod. english; 21st century Amer. slang, origin pipe and cigar forums

1. the process of removing recreational pipe or cigar smoke from the mouth through the sinuses and out the nostrils, bypassing the lungs, thereby saturating smell receptors and maximizing taste value while preserving total lung capacity (TLC).

Example: "Taste isn't all in your mouth; try a snork to recognize the full taste of cigar or pipe smoke."

Hi there! From one old fart to another, I'm thinking about switching from my old standby pipe tobacco, Gawith's Dark Bird's Eye, to an aromatic. Oddly, I've been searching for hours and can't find anything online about the nicotine content of aromatics.

Does something cheaper, like Admiral's Choice, contain decent nicotine content? Also, is it normally considered reasonable on the lungs to inhale aromatics (I inhale the Dark Bird's Eye perhaps twice per bowl)? I should know these things after smoking a pipe for nearly four years, but I simply don't. Thank you! I appreciate it.

The constituent tobaccos are what contain the nicotine. If you have been getting a nicotine hit from Dark Bird's Eye and not been nauseous or unconscious, you will not find the same nic fix in any aromatic - unless it is an aromatic made from Dark Bird's Eye. in fact, there are not many other tobaccos out there that will give you such a nic hit.

Oh wait, try the Gawith flavored ropes, they would be the only tobacco that I could think of that would come do that. I know the ropes have quite a nic hit, but I've never tried their aromatic ropes before. I will say that the Gawith aromatics are not usually something that American palates truly appreciate.

You are welcome. Been smoking a pipe for almost 30 years now. When I want a nic hit, I don't reach for an aromatic. I usually like a VaPer (Virginia w/Perique) blend. I haven't had Gawith's Dark Birdseye in a while, but that was always fairly high in nicotine.

Can't get enough of the snork myself, and when you get a really favorable and spicy baccy, its just "snork city" out on the patio.

I just blame Dan though

Hey, fellas. Happy Monday. You were so helpful before that I thought I'd pose a rather pressing (but hopefully easy) question about nicotine content.

Knowing my occasionally weak self-discipline, I've been smoking Gawith's Dark Bird's Eye for quite a while, as it's high in nicotine content without having to be inhaled, and this will keep me away from cigarettes -- as long as I get that ol' nicotine.

Two of my trusted online sellers, including Mars, are out of Dark Bird's Eye for the first time I can remember, due to their shared importer having run out. Can anyone recommend a comparable pipe tobacco, at least in terms of mouth-absorbed nicotine content? Thanks so much.

I figured that they could put any mixture in there without the customer knowing exactly what he's getting, since it was no longer in the factory packaging. Am I being paranoid?

SP is one of the most legitimate retailers. Of course their bulk selections come in SP bags, but I highly doubt it would matter.

If you wanted to still get it in the SG boxes you would have to order the 250/500g boxes that SG releases. Everything else is going to be in SPs own bags.

I definitely have pounds and pounds of various tobacco from that site though. Definitely my preferred retailer.

Thank you for the reply, Savvy. The non-factory packaging was, in fact, a 1-pound bag -- I don't order them any smaller. Mars offers the original 500g distinction, but not SP. Same quantity (virtually), different packaging.

If you're an experienced pipe smoker and you haven't noticed anything lacking in the legitimacy of their tobacco, I admit that that makes me feel a bit better about it.

I have gotten this particular tobacco from SP, in their packaging. Here's a great idea, place your order by phone - ask them for the whole 500g box/bag and see what you get.

Just so you know, Gawith, Hoggarth makes Darks Birdseye not SG. And, it is also available at Pipes & Cigars for 17oz for $53.43. Here's the link.

Been doing some roaming on these threads on some research, my buddy and I want to start smoking pipes (we both are cigar smokers) can I store pipe tobacco in an old empty with a boveda pack? I'm assuming the aromatics will affect my cigars like infused cigars would! Also what if I don't open tin can it go in my coolidor?

I think I'm gonna try and sample some stuff I've read on the what's in your bowl thread, I was gonna try first and foremost Christmas cheer, and so to bed, night cap, royal yacht, exhausted rooster and sextant. I'm assuming I will like strong sweet tasty tobacco any other stuff I should try? Price isn't a huge point to factor because I will not leave being a cigar smoker, it's cold out and my girlfriend will let me smoke a pipe on the house and sounds like a fun hobby!! Thanks CA!
