I agree, This is the best way to enjoy the "flavor" of a good smoke
I finally achieved a full snork. However I noticed no real difference in flavor. Are there certain blends that a snork would work best with?
"Best" is probably not a word that applies here. But there are blends where the snork is more noticeably different than with other blends. And I'm sure a lot of that depends on your body chemistry (nasal chemistry?) and your sensitivity, as well. There are some latakia/oriental blends I've smoked that the latakia stands out more or is smokier when exhaled through my nose. There are Virginia/Burley blends where the citrus of the Va stood out more in the nose. And I've noticed that blends described as having chocolate/cocoa notes are often more chocolatey in the snork than in the mouth taste. Sorry I can't think of blend names to give you as examples - I snork as a matter of habit and don't really pay attention. Instead, I'll just urge you to keep snorking and be assured you'll run into blends where the snork holds some delightful surprises!
Now for the feats of strength, you wanna piece of me?????
I have always snorked... just didn't know it had a name. The best flavor for me is to take a ventilated puff (lots of air) with an open mouth, then snork.
Lat blends really get me. I taste nothing but salt in the mouth, but something like dark chocolate/sweetness in the nose.
Just a mild suggestion.. but do not try snorking when one has a head cold..... when you sneeze you have the appearance of some sort of Sci-Fi dragon that tends to cause those around you to flee while screaming. Trust me.. it is not good.
Yes, snorking has become habitual for me because of this thread.
I find some tobaccos are almost a bit harder to push through your nose.
I want to try
I just read a bunch of this thread and finally realized I've been snorking when I thought I was Frenching. No wonder my wife has been cranky of late!
Tried it with CB round taste. Not so good...
tried tonight for the first time and liked it... I'll be a snorker from here on out
What was your tobacco?
SWR... I don't think there were any different flavors that showed up when I exhaled out my nose, but I was mostly tasting cedar and that was amplified for sure.
You got no snork, you got nothing. Noses are made to be broken.
My nose does not allow snorking. Try as I might
I just read this entire thread. I have smoked pipes on and off for over 50 years and I am sad to admit I have never "snorked". I have years ago when I smoked cigarettes but never with a pipe or cigar. I really want to try it but alas I have developed an upper respiratory problem and haven't had a bowl since Friday and won't until I can take a deep breath without coughing. Wouldn't you know as I typed my order of Golden Extra and London Blend just came.
Oh well I'll try it when I can.
That sucks. I have been having nose problems for around last 20 years. Eventually it got so bad that I was unable to breathe through it and had to visit a doctor couple months ago. He took one look and sent me straight to the surgeon to avoid further complications. Surgery + meds = amazing! Not only can I breathe and sleep like a normal person now, but I can smell so much stuff it's awesome. Also the snorking went up to a whole new level, allowing me to enjoy pipes so much more.
Nice dude. I've barely been able to breath through my nose since before I can remember. I gotta get that surgery.
