Re: using pipe tobacco in a hookah
The answer is no. The way that you pack a western pipe is far different than how you pack a hookah bowl. The tobacco would not smoke properly. Adding glycerin would just ruin the flavor further. Use hookah tobacco in a hookah and pipe tobacco in a western pipe.
Do you smoke actual cigars or just flavored stuff? Bear in mind, I am a fan of flavored cigars once in a while, but vanilla pipe tobacco is very different than both hookah tobacco and any kind of cigars.
