The Finer Things

Hello my friends. As a relatively inexperienced smoker, I'd like to hear what some of you with more experience might suggest to me in terms of brands and the like.

I love cloves. Djarum Supers. In fact, I have some in my coat pocket right now.

Right now I have two cartons of cloves in my closet. One is Djarum Vanilla and one is Djarum Black. I prefer the latter but both are good.

Even my non-smoker wife likes to smoke Cloves.

If cloves are legal to buy in your state (they aren't in Utah)...just try your local tobacco shop. As for cigars, I really enjoy a Romeo y Julieta cedar wrapped cigar. So nice. Here's a tip...the cedar is to light the cigar with...you never light a cigar with a lighter. Light the cedar and then go in a circular motion around the tip of the cigar as you take puffs. If you don't get a cedar wrapped one...light it with a match. You'll also need to purchase a cigar punch or a cutter. These can be had for under a dollar at most tobacco shops.

If you want a cigar, your local mall probably has a "Tinder Box" store which would be easily accessible.

Don't inhale your cigar...you'll either puke or pass out.

I recommend, however, that you join the CGR Pipe Smoking Alliance. Charter members include me and John Roberson. We also got Benj started. You can purchase a pipe at Wal-Mart, I think they are $8.97 or whatever. I forget the maker, but they only carry one kind of pipe...so you are bound to get the right kind. It comes with a filter loaded into the stem, just take the stem off and take it out...it'll ruin your smoke. Also purchase a "tamping tool"...it helps you load your pipe and clean it out. You could smoke the "Presbyterian Mix" seen in my avatar...but I'd recommend starting with an aromatic, such as Vanilla. You'd have to go to the tobacconist to get your tobacco.

Pipe smoking is the most enjoyable form of smoking I know. It is also really sexy. You can read more about how to properly smoke a pipe here:

Thank you for the invaluable advice.

In all honesty, I have always wanted to smoke a pipe, but would be rather nervous about doing it without experienced supervision. I may have to give it a try, though. The few times I have smoked cigars or cloves, I have greatly enjoyed them. If you say pipe smoking is more enjoyable and (perhaps most importantly) sexier, then I guess I'd have to be frickin retarded or something not to try it.

Sampoerna Hijaus are really good too but are unfiltered.

Those are quite nice. I've enjoyed those the most out of the ones I've smoked. Going to go get my pipe and such tomorrow, hopefully.

I agree. Bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad evil sinners. I hope you enjoy your eternity in the smoking section.






















Give me a freaking break. Get over yourself.

Sure you do, so long as it is a clean burning fuel with a wide flame. You do not use things like Bic lighters because they will impart a flavor to the tobacco.

I think pipes are sexy...but being able to hand roll a cigarette well is pretty damned sexy as well. Some people can even do with with one hand (and I really mean one handed...no rolling machines).
