Tombac is actually a different kind of hookah tobacco that is just tobacco leaves dried into a block that you soak in water and then smoke with a hookah.
Molasses is not a mistranslation. It's our language not representing it properly. In the same way that shisha means bottle or glass but is meant to mean the entire hookah... Molasses is correct. It's just more than only molasses.
