I haven't been a pipe smoker for long....perhaps 8 months at the most. I began the journey with some nice and easy aromatics. Recently I took the plunge into English.....and it's happening: I find myself having a hard time liking aromatics. For some reason, about 1/2 way through each bowl, I lose interest and immediatly yearn for something more...English. I am going through a transformation and I fear I shall never be the same.
