Matt did a good job answering this question, but let me throw in my two cents.
Alot of people prefer a more safer, consistently performing tobacco.
Tangiers is not a "lock and load" tobacco that you can just slam into your bowl. It can be fussy depending on climate and packing. This is something that alot of people don't want to do so they avoid Tangiers altogether.
Totally understandable. Its when people bad mouth a product they don't know how to use or don't understand is when thier true colors come thorugh.Whatever. Bottom line is that I'd rather have a tobacco that is outstanding most of the time instead of a tobacco that is "ok" all the time.
In addition, Tangiers has some great flavors (with some more great ones in development), alot of which do not exist with anyother brand.
