    I'm the opposite! Lat is soft, smooth, smoky and sweet, while per feels like chili peppers in my nose even if there is just a little of it. Actually makes me sneeze sometimes.

    Sometimes that happens to me and I try drawing just a little bit of smoke and snorking it. That way it's not hot, and there's not so much smoke that you BBQ your nasal cavity. More often than not, it turns out to be a pretty pleasant experience.

    States Attorney: The defendant having been found guilty and with the sentencing phase complete, it is time for the jury to decide on the penalty. Do not be deceived. This felon is an admitted Snorker. He has no redeeming value to society.

    Up until about 5 minutes ago I would have disagreed with you. I am smoking Macbarens Honey and Chocolate as I type. The flavour through snork is amazing

    Love a good snork.....plus it leaves a nice tobacco scent in the moustache to savor

    Snorking is a must with cigars, but even more so with pipes IMO

    As far as I'm concerned, smoking without snorking is like cooking without salt and pepper!

    Just discovered the snork and find it very nice. It took a little work to master, but it was worth the effort.

    A good solid CH snork from a cob is simply an amazing thing. Wonderful flavor.

    I did that with potato salad when I was about 16, hugging the bowl..... with my brother, standing next to me laughing his butt off.
    And it was German potato salad....

    I wasn't aware that anyone did anything other than what you describe..... this is what I've always done and I do it nearly every puff. What do people do? Exhale it out their mouth? That's a waste. Whats the point in that? No taste doing that, as you say.

    The whole secret is doing it with just the right amount of smoke in your mouth, and doing it at the right speed. You have too much smoke in yourmouth and/or snork too fast and you burn your nose all too hell. I just sip it and slowly move it out my nostrils. Sometimes I'll get a bigger puff and and start to move it out my nose and then right in the mddle just stop and let it burn my nose a little. I enjoy the subtle burn now and then.

    Many new pipers (and some not-so-new ones) never tried the snork. It is our job to bring them up to spin. Like everything else, once you know how it's easy.

    As a newbie I did it inadvertently a few times, not realizing that's the way to get the most taste from the tobacco. After reading this thread I key in on much more. Great tip.

    If you can snork German potato salad then anything is possible.
