I like the flavor and scent of cloves. As I'm in Indonesia at present, and clove cigarets are a local specialty, I got the brilliant idea to unroll a couple and smoke them in my Peterson. After several miserable puffs, I came to the conclusion that it was nasty tobacco covered in nasty clove scent.

Four bowls of decent tobacco later I still taste the crap tobacco and overpowering taste of cloves! Evil or Very Mad

I may need to wait until I return home and give that 'ol bowl the salt treatment to get that horrid taste out. Good thing I brought a few other pipes for the trip, or I'd be SOL.

Avoid putting clove tobacco from third-world cigarets in your pipes, my brothers (as if any of you are dumb enough to do it?!?), allow me to be the bad example so you won't be. Embarassed

That sucks. Just smoke a bunch of lakelands in it, then a few black cherry aro's, and some lat. It will be ghosted so many different ways you wont notice the clove. Twisted Evil

There's a slight evil side of me that hears a Lakeland lover cryin' to his momma about that "dirty old tobacco" ghosting his bowl. Laughing

There's a slight decent side of me that hopes you chase off the ghosts because--I know exactly what it's like to have a tainted pipe.


Hope faraway lands are treatin' you good otherwise, Natch. Havin' fun?

Cool

You'd have to smoke it in a hazmat suit though. The pipe would have a radioactive half life of about 200 years! Shocked

Well too late now....You could have told everyone about the great taste of cloves and brought back your own special Indonesian tobacco for bartering. pirat

Well...you could dedicate that pipe to Thranshers Aromatic since the bowl is so well cloved.
Everyone should try Thranshers Aromatic at least once so they'd know what a truly horrible tobacco tastes like.
Clove, citrus, grass clippings, last years rats nest....good stuff. No

Reminds me of the time I decided to make a martini out of olive juice, because I like olives. That was a FAIL.

Yea, every screw-up in my life sounded like a great idea at the time. Why is it our hindsight is so much better than our foresight? Laughing

Natch! Isn't that the truth.

Me: "Oh, look. It won't be a big deal to cut towards me just a little. I won't push the knife too hard."

For me, those were famous last words. Now, $6000 in cold hard cash later, and a finger that will never be the same? Well, all I have to say is that every screw up sounds good at first.

Do you know if the Kreteks for distribution over there are different than the import ones we used to get here??

From what I understand, there is actual tobacco in them, but I have no idea in what proportions. I just remember them being not especially vitamin N fortified.

I do laud you, Natch, for giving them a try in your pipe. I think that poor Pete will forever have the ghost of your 2012 Indonesian tour, lol.
