Default Re: Tangiers

The only thing I can think of is similar to what happens with certain cigars. There's a period when a cigar is "resting" it gives off a musty almost barnyard smell, sometimes even a slight sulfur-like smell. The BBQ odor we smell probably that musty/baryard/sulfur smell mixing with the chemicals/ingrediants used in the process of making Tangiers tobacco.

I think that humidity has very little or even nothing to do with the smell. Letting it acclimate is just letting the smell air out.

If it was cigars and you open up your humi and that your cigars "stink" you know to just close you humi back up and let them sit, but cigar smokers know that cigars mature with age, the flavors sometimes change and the rough edges smoothen out.

Shisha, if I read correctly shouldn't be saved past 2yrs.
Less drama, more hookah!
