I smoked a pipe for 25 years, it was in my mouth from the time I got up until bedtime. Raising a family I couldn’t afford cigars so I smoked Captain Black white mostly with half and half as a change of pace. The two biggest things between pipes and cigars are cigar tobacco is stronger than pipe tobacco. You need to callous your tongue as pipe smoke is concentrated on the hole in the stem hitting the same spot on your tongue. If you can get past burning your tongue when you first start you on your way. Helpful hint for packing bowel pack lower part of bowel tight and top part loose and you’ll cut down on relighting the bowel.
