Hi guys, i have just 'aquired' a pipe off my father-in-law.....against my wifes wishes (we are both in trouble!!) I need tobacco recommendations please.

My wife thinks pipes (and cigars for that matter) smell like dogs sh#t, she loves animals so i'm thinking.....is there a tobacco that has the aroma of wet dog or cat that i could buy so she won't notice i'm smoking it??

Seriously i would like something with a sweet aroma please, thanks

Give the the following a try they have a sweetish aroma
Holland House
Clan
Benson and hedges ready rubbed.


Then you have the never ending choice of loose tobacco's weighed by the ounce.

More help needed,

When i got this it still had part burnt tobacco in the bowl, i have emptied it out but i suspect it had been there for many years, how would i go about giving it a damn good clean?? Are there any chemicals i can use?

Any tips or tricks would be most welcome

You can salt treat it, there are plenty of videos on YouTube. Rattrays bagpipers dream has a nice room note to it, my wife says it smells a bit like Jack Daniels and Coke, it tastes nice too but does burn quite hot, so take small sips. That's a nice looking pipe too.
