I've been smoking a pipe for a few years now. I first started smoking cigars a few years before pipes, and I rarely smoke cigars now. I take a sort of wine-tasting approach to describing tasting notes in the tobaccos I review. I'm not an expert, and may never be. I just describe what I'm tasting.
My reviews are based on briar pipes. If I try a blend in a corn cob, I'll make mention of it. I like all kinds of blends. I'll rate a blend as 'highly recommended' if I really enjoy it, and I have found it to be unique in its class (blend type).
