    Do any of you notice a difference in how much you salivate when smoking different tobaccos?
    I just realized aro's really cause me to salivate a ton more than with VA's or English blends.
    Makes it harder to clench a pipe when the water works are going.

    Certain blends do that to me, but when I take a certain medication for my back, I get dry mouth. So that fixes everything. lol

    Ha!
    I wonder if it has something to do with the flavorings some baccy has. Tricks your mouth into thinking you are eating sweets.

    Just like anything you put in your mouth, it will activate saliva glands to a certain degree. I also find clenching makes the waterworks increase. It has always been hard for me to do yardwork while clenching a pipe.

    So, maybe that gurgle you hear coming from your pipe isn't from the tobacco.

    I get a lot of salivation from Lat and Oriental blends.

    We're the lucky ones, Bradabelko4. I've heard some pipe smokers can't do Lat because they get dry mouth. More for us.

    Yeah, I've not noticed as much about different blends (though sweet aros = more saliva seems sensible), but I have definitely noticed that when I clench things go into overdrive.

    Strangely, I was smoking some Condor in my back yard this morning and chatting to the girl next door - as she was hanging some washing on the line, and still in her nightie, I remember salivating more than I usually do.
