I started smoking pipe in 1999. Since then I've been reviewing tobaccos primarily on national platforms that sadly don't exist any more.
I enjoy all kinds of tobacco from VA, VaPer, English/Balkan to Aromatics dependent on daytime and season.
I don't smoke cigarettes, but I enjoy cigars every now and then. Therefore, my strength and nicotine ratings might be on the more sensitive side.

Since this site has become of international relevance, I will briefly implement my personal view on how the use of a charcoal filter might change the experience of the reviewed tobacco. I myself prefer an underrated paper filter in filter pipes, that does't block the airstream, just takes out some of the moisture that may emerge.
