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 cheap Lane aromatic is something of a guilty pleasure for me, my Miller High Life of pipe tobacco, as it were.

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, and Seattle Pipe Club's Plum Pudding. A big ceramic jar of Lane hazelnut is also a must.

As for my pipes, I got them neatly racked and usually own between 7-12 at any given time. I favor Danish and Irish styles in particular.
