why have a similar one? You may as well be smoking golden virginia!

Get yourself either some menthol filters or a pipe, and smoke some Drum. It's good for you

What is the difference in taste between handrolled,filtered and unfiltered brands?
I enjoy the occasional cigar and am open to smoking pipes.I wonder how the taste compares to those...
(BTW you could move this thread to the smoker's society)

Pipe can take a bit of getting used to, and there is some art in packing the pipe correctly... but after about 3 or 4 bowls (The bowl is the bit you light, im not talking big cereal bowls here ) you get good at it and it's very enjoyable, relaxing, and a great conversation starter.

It's just the image of it-the association with middle aged men-that makes me fear I might be made into a social pariah.
Pipe smoking is not seen as cool as cigars or even hookahs/shishas...
