Smoking a pipe can be one of the most relaxing hobbies, but it can also intimidating and frustrating if you've never tried it before. This class will offer a chance for those new to the hobby to learn the basics of pipe smoking—how to properly pack a pipe, light and taste the tobacco—as well as an overview of the wide variety of pipe tobacco and pipes available. Tobacco comes in a variety of flavors and strengths, so it's good to start slow under the guise of a veteran enthusiast. Each guest will receive a Missouri Meerschaum corn cob pipe, accessories, tobacco samples and the knowledge to continue exploring the endless world of pipe smoking for years to come.

Please note: this class will be held in the Davidoff Lounge Boardroom at Burns Tobacconist.
