Tried grapefruit juice...that was a mistake. So far, I'm a fan of english breakfast or Prince of Wales tea with a splash of soymilk, or, as I'm doing at the moment, straight chocolate soymilk. Mostly I smoke virginias and VaPer blends, and haven't actually tried drinking with a latakia blend....yet.

Similar to tongue bite is my hypersensitivity to perique which burns like hananeros. Anybody use beverages to counter that?

Biotene is great stuff. It removes all manner of yuck from my mouth, even the bitter taste of defeat.

Coffee! Good strong stuff, and always black.....

It sounds fantastic. Yeah, I would have some coffee with my pipe smoking too. If it is strong expresso just to sip it along, all the better!!

Aye! It's coffee for me too, though I take it with a splash of milk! Earl Grey is superb with some mixtures too. Failing the above a glass of lukewarm water - never cold - works to freshen the tongue as well.

Don't really fancy any other drink with my smoke. I have found that lean alcohol tends to flatten the sense of taste somewhat. When it comes to my favorite malts, however, drinking Talisker while smoking Wilderness - though certainly thematic - would be like adding honey to a honeycomb.

That said, I often crave for a pint of ale after having a bowlful.

I have to agree with Muddler and Eon. Coffee or Earl Grey does wonders with the taste buds whilst sipping a good pipe. Enjoy

Water works best for me. Distilled spirits is the worst - the EtOH irritates my buds when I'm smoking.

Coffee and tea for me; with the occasional splash of a nice, aged port.

Cruzan Black Strap Rum. Kid you not.

Cruzan is made on St. Croix (Saint Cross). We went there in 2004, visited the Rum Factory...yes they had to pry my cold clenching hands from the doors of the main building...I digress...It's not clear Bacardi rum...it has a wonderful taste.

It complements Latakia, Burley, Virginia, Oriental and Turkish Tobacco either by themselves or in a blend (Did I miss any?)

It's a 47 proof so go easy, sip slowly, savor the flavor (Savor the Flavor I better trademark that tonight, Ha ha ha)

This will make your eyes water, your heart lust and your pipe tobacco taste Wonderful.

Good Lord I wish I owned some stock in this Rum Factory!

French roast Folgers, strong with sugar, on a saucer. Earl Grey, Bourbon, Scotch, iced tea in a Mason jar--all too obvious. Ever have a smoke with chocolate milk? I drink the stuff by the gallon in an effort to maintain my weight and health, just so happens to go well with burley. Seriously.

Too me a nice twelve year old double barrel Scotch or Cognac goes very well with an English blend.

I fully agree with this. I love a good cup of coffee with either my pipe or my coffee. I know this may sound strange coming from preacher, but I also enjoy the occasional single malt scotch with my cigar. I'm still experimenting to see what compliments my pipe. I smoke a mixture called cumberland gap (a burley blend).

Any color label that begins with Johnny and ends with Walker. Straight up or covering some rock.

Rx : One or two shots, occasionally, to be taken by mouth, in gradual sips, between meals, and avoid operating heavy equipment. Return visit to your favorite supplier every few months with a co-pay of $30.00. Contra indications: a complaining wife.

Typically strong (1 scoop per cup) black coffee for me, hot black tea, iced sweet tea or water can substitute if I'm twonked on caffeine already. Scotch and whisky are okay, but it's been a while since I've had any. For some reason I can't drink beer with a pipe--it feels weird and throws off the taste. I smoke mostly Lat bombs and medium-heavy English blends and never get tongue bite (probably because I'm coating the inside of my mouth with something that's a step down from motor oil). Shocked

A good imperial grade Tie Guan Yin (sometimes called Monkey Picked) oolong tea. Though finding for under 20 bucks an ounce is a chore, better off for a lower grade like Fancy, should be able to get it or 5 bucks or less.

Do you think drinking a lot of healthy tea will offset the unheathy smoking? I hope so since I drink about half a gallon of various teas every day.

Yep, while I prefer chocolate milk, even whole white milk is good. Seems to sooth the tongue since I have been labeled a "huffer" by some of the guys I smoke with. Laughing

Don't prefer to drink anything with pipe smoking.

For me, these are two mutually exclusive activities.

YMMV.


Cheers,

I don't think life gets better than a 70 degree evening sitting on the deck listening to Gillian Welch with a fine single barrel bourbon in one hand and a calabash filled with Cavendish in the other.

A good bourbon (Basil Haden is my favorite) really compliments the subtlety of a mild cavendish.

Of course, a good bourbon, especially the fourth or fifth one, seems to compliment everything. Very Happy
