Sure it can. How do you think it was smoked before Eric made the phunnel bowl?

Actually, the reason why Tangiers is cut the way it is and why it's less dense is originally to make it smoke better/more consistent using a traditional bowl.

Actually I find cleaning up residual juice from Tangiers to be much easier because the glycerine & oils keep dry particulates from caking/sticking to internal surfaces. Many times it just requires running warm/hot water through and little to no scrubbing.

Which is needed otherwise I'd flip out on my gf much more than I already do. lol Either way if your interested the best flavor I have ever had from tangiers is lemon. It smells and tastes just like lemonheads. lol The grapes are good, and by grapes i mean grape and white grape, also the cherries (cherry machiato, kashmir cherry) are extremely strong, I think cherry machiato is the strongest stuff tangiers has. I've talked to Eric (Owner and creator of Tangiers) and he has told me that not all of his tobacco is created equal and that cherry machiato has a little bit higher NIC count then most others. So if you want something to floor you... if you can handle it... get cherry machiato. lol
Cherry machiato? Do you mean Maraschino Cherry?

All Noir is made using the same tobacco blend. All Lucid is made using the same washed tobacco blend. Eric does not use nicotine additives for specific flavors. Flavors may smoke differently and affect nicotine curves (acclimation can do the same) but the amount of nicotine in the tobacco is the same.

Maraschino Cherry is one of the strongest of Tangiers in terms of flavor. Are you sure you did not misunderstand what he said?
