Default Re: Tobacco brands

The biggest differences between tobaccos that you will notice immediately is whether they are washed or unwashed. This refers to the treatment of the tobacco and whether it has been "washed" to lessen the amount of nicotine when smoked. Unwashed tobacco like Nakhla will have more nicotine and a stronger undertone of tobacco whereas a washed tobacco like AF, Starbuzz etc. will not. These tobaccos have less nicotine and the undertones of tobacco are either completely extinguished or muted by the amount of flavoring and other ingredients added. This is not necessarily a bad thing you like more pronounced "candy"-esque flavors but these tobaccos also tend to come with a higher price tag(save for AF).
