I have been a casual pipe smoker since 2006. I started tinning tobacco around 2009. While I don't add to my collection of tobacco but maybe once or twice a year, I seem to be adding a nice new pipe at least as frequently. I'm not a very social pipe smoker, usually preferring to smoke at home and alone, although you an occasionally find me on 4th avenue or downtown Tucson smoking on the sidewalk. I do love pipes and pipe tobacco though, to the extent that I have incorporated it into my favorite game, Guild Wars 2. If anyone is interested, I have a new guild called Briar and Leaf (Pffn) that needs some interested members :-)

I've used the reviews on this website to start my collection, beginning with Skandinavik, a blend most similar to what my grandfather smoked. My favorite aromatic has to be Black Velvet, although McClelland Holiday Spirit 2012 is another personal favorite. My go-to English is called Huber Classic from Pfeifen Huber, Munich. Full Virginia Flake is another personal favorite, which I only know about from the reviews on this site.
