I am a new pipe smoker. I recently started to smoke in beginning of Feb 2016. Although I am new, I am lucky enough to taste a good variety of tobaccos in a short period of time. Here I will share reviews from a beginner's point of view, and it may be helpful to beginners.

I like to smoke cigars from time to time. I am a not a fan of cigarettes because of the paper taste but I like RYO tobaccos like Old Horford and roll it in a very very thin paper so I can enjoy the tobacco. But neither of them can replace a good English Blend!
