I’m inviting anyone who knows pipe tobaccos to help me create a recipe. @SquirrelSmash I know you like your pipe tobaccos so please jump in if you please.
To help, I used to smoke a pipe many years ago and was introduced to it by a smoke shop that sold me what they described as something similar to the less expensive Captain Black Original…a soft tobacco with a vanilla top note. An aromatic pipe tobacco as opposed to the non-aromatic English classification. I loved the aroma and so did everyone around me. I’d love to create a vape around this profile. Here’s a real pipe tobacco that I would aspire to:
@muth good choice of brands I also have been a connoisseur of well blended pipe tobaccos for many years. My favorites also being from MacBaren, I thoroughly enjoy their Cherry Ambrosia and Toffee Cream. I have been looking for a good quality E Pipe in which to enjoy my pipe inspired eliquid mixes. For my cherry Ambrosia mix I used the Stixx mixx Cherry Cavendish with their Dark Fire and INW Shisha Vanilla and InW Cherries. I’ll have to look for my recipe and share with you.
I remember enjoying the Captain Black Royal blend which had notes of sweet coconut and vanilla and it had a wonderful room note that people nearby would compliment me on. I had a black coral meerschaum pipe (full bent) with a gold band that was dedicated to that particular tobacco because I liked it so much.
Hahaha, well this particular pipe had the appearance of black coral/coal so the black stem suited it well but I did have a few pipes with amber stems.
This pipe in the picture is similar to the one that I had only mine was bent slightly more.
Those Oom pipes are a bit too large for my tastes but I did think about getting a Sherlock Holmes style calabash but I refrained for some reason. I found smoking a pipe like good company similar to being with an old friend and spent many an hour quietly sat in my favourite armchair by the fire pondering all sorts of different things, it was like a therapy to relax the nerves and I always felt more focused afterwards. Hell, this conversation is making me miss my old pipes and I think I need a suitable E pipe to try and replace them.
Thank you everyone. I see I may have stirred up some old memories. I refrained from getting INW Vanilla for Pipe because I heard it was weak but you’re right, no reason why I can’t beef it up to my liking as one way to do it. Building it from scratch will be more advantageous to me for creating other pipe offerings.
I was by no means a pipe connoisseur so I appreciate all the suggestions
Island Tobacco (SC) is a tobacco with coconut. I liked it and bought as much as I could when BCF had their clearance. It can still be purchased at Flavor Jungle under the FE brand, iirc.
ETA: As a matter of fact, I liked the tobacco/coconut profile so much that I requested a special blend to be made from Naturally Extracted Tobacco when they were still in business. It was a take on their Black Cavendish/Coconut blend only mine used Natural Cavendish which was lighter and let the coconut shine through more.
The coconut in Island Tobacco is good quality but it’s not a Cavendish tobacco and not a NET. I wonder if INW Tobacco Cavendish and their Virginia Absolute would be a good start…with a coconut of your liking.
I remember a long long time ago, when I used to smoke a pipe, I used to buy this buttered rum blend from Tinder Box that was just so relaxing and smelled wonderful. I actually had a camp shirt that I would wear while smoking it. Just so I could smell it later. It’s the only time I liked the smell of tobacco on clothing.
Wonder if there’s a recipe for that? I suck at tobacco mixes, but would try that.
