I find this to be a wonderful part of the pipe smoking experience for me. For instance, I didn't "get" Rattray's Marlin flake, till I smoked Capstan flake (blue tin). and most recently, I didn't "get" BCA or anything comparable till I snagged a bag of Smoker's Pride Black Cav... and I "get it" now. I could not get BCA to work till I enjoyed the SPBC. it can go both ways however, FVF was this awe inspiring smoke till I tried Germain's Brown Flake and now I "get it." the "get it" factor is probably just me learning how to smoke different tobaccos to their fullest, but every tobacco seems to need a learning curve of it's own to me. and thus, I can't ever come to terms with not liking a particular tobacco, ever. I just assume I don't get it yet, and set it aside for later. anyone else have a similar feeling about it?
