I would say that Zaghloul reminds more of a latakia, it's got a smoky intensity to it.
For some reason, zaghloul is usually very dry. Your best bet is to reconstitute before smoking with molasses and glycerine. Makes it much smoother.
In the homade hookah stuff section Hajo Flettner posted a few recipes for making moassel out of pipe tobaccos. Works damn well.
