Re: Harsh Smoke
smoking it like a cig could give them a funny taste or tickle in their throat or harshness since that tends to only clean out the smoke in the base and not fresh smoke. You might even be underpacking certain tobacco. Then there is heat management. You being used to smoking can give you a certain tolerance for harshness too. I know I like my mint to burn a little bit more than it should, and sometimes that feels harsh to others.
