Over thinking the pallet??

So far in my pipe journeys I have noticed unlike cigars a want the smoke to hit the tip of my tongue rather then the center. I find at the tip I find the sweetness of honey and toastiness come out,at the mid point more of the smokiness comes out and towards the back is where the pepper comes in. Am I over thinking how I smoke or have any of you guys found the same?

    Hadn't thought of it, but now I will. Like cigars, it's generally all about the nose with me.

    I can taste pipe tobacco on the tongue but I get much more on the retro. I like to make sure that the smoke touches all parts of the tongue and the roof of the mouth to get the full effect but I do not pick up certain elements on certain parts of the tongue more than others if that is what you are saying. For me no one part really stands out as being sweet, etc. over the others.

    Had some Capt Black Royal earlier, about my only aromatic, andyou're right, Lee, it does work out that way. Just never thought about it, I guess.

    Yeah it's very odd to me...why is a pipe and a cigar so different as they hit your pallet??
