Re: Authentic Middle eastern shish or american?
I like "modern" middle eastern tobaccos (ie AF, etc.) but man is it hard to beat Tangiers! The most "artificial" I get is AF and Fusion. Tangiers is more "to the roots". It's molasseses based which is rather rare nowadays that hails to a more traditional style. The only artificial thing about Tangiers is the flavoring put in there which is the closest to the real thing out there. Smoking Peach Iced Tea is like drinking some Peach Arizona Tea. Amazing. AF has the classic fruit flavors and I love Fusion for sweetness without it being saccharine and cheaper than SB.
