Professional dogsbody; dedicated pipe smoker since 2003, casual cigar smoker in the warm months.

Principally a Virginia, VaPer, and burley smoker, and my collection/cellar largely reflects this. There is simply nothing finer than a well-aged Va/VaPer.

I was heavy Latakia smoker at one time, and still dip my toes into the pool once in a while. It takes a very particular mood and craving for me to light up an aromatic these days.
