About thirty days ago I got my first ever meerschaum. A group six IMP straight billybazooka smooth. First ever smoking experience with a meer. Been burnin va/vaper/burley in it. Mechanically it smokes very well, but SOMETHING is missing. It is just not "like" a good briar. It's NOT bad in any way, sort of. It's just flat, neutral and doesn't seem to have any character. You know how cement tastes? It doesn't. I'm not going to s'can it, it does add to my rotation. I'm not going to close my mind about it. Maybe it just takes time. Maybe it needs a white dot on the stem. Maybe I need to have a capo talk to it.
