I took up pipe smoking roughly around 2020, and am grateful I have. It is a hobby that has done much to help me cultivate contentment and appreciate the joys of solitude.

As for my tastes, I find myself enjoying nearly all of the major tobacco families, but I'm partial to Burleys and VaPer blends. The occasional aromatic is also welcome.

My collection is modest due to limited amount of space, but I always immediately store tobaccos in Le Parfait jars and have them on display on a small shelf for my pleasure. I like to have a variety of blends, as I enjoy jumping from one kind of tobacco to the next, but I almost always have some old favorites at the ready, namely G.L.Pease's Stratford, Cornell & Diehl's Briar Fox.

As for my pipes, I got them neatly racked and usually own between 7-15 at any given time. I favor Danish and Irish styles in particular.
