Default tangiers fans, please help me out.

i'm sorry for posting this guys, but it's time for me to try tangiers and i need a little bit of help.

there's mixed reviews all over the internet and i don't know which one to get.

i've narrowed it down to these flavors, all from the noir line:

-------

kashmir peach (this sounds like a flavor i'd really like, i love peach flavs and floral flavors too. but i've heard a lot of people have issues with it)

cocoa (heard a lot of good things about this one)

peach iced tea (i love peach flavors, but i've heard some people were not able to get it acclimated right)

--------

i just need to know if any of these flavors are going to be harder to acclimate than others, if they require extreme heat management, and if they really do taste good at all...

i know a lot of you hate it so don't bash please, i'm only going to try it once unless it's fucking amazing.

any help will be very much appreciated. thank you.

I can tell you from experience that Kashmir Peach is really good stuff.

acclimating-just leave it spread out in a piece of foil for a few hours, go back to it and it should smell like the flavor. If not, leave if for a while longer until it does. Most likely it'll be acclimated within a few hours though.

heat management-they'll all be the same.

Why not get a 3 pack of Tangiers and then you can try them all out...?

I, the apparent Tangiers billboard, would suggest
- Horchata - a creamy like flavor with cinnamon (don't know if you know what Horchata is, if not I suggest Googling it)
- Tasty Peach - Tastes like those gummy Peach-O candies
- Orange Soda - Tastes a lot like that orange drink Tang
- Summer Solstice Celebration - Watermelon and Guava
- Marachino Cherry - Takes like a Cherry flavored Icee

don't get me wrong, i would in a heartbeat, but i'm on a strict budget until i get paid from my job in 2 weeks (which starts tomorrow). i've got 100 dollars to spare for a mya qt (2 hose), 3 boxes of coals, and 1 package of tangiers.

i've heard A LOT of good reviews about K-peach, but i also saw a bunch of people that say it requires super intense heat management, it burns hot, and it's hard to acclimate. i really want to try it but if it's going to be that hard, then i'm going to go with a different flavor.

i actually did a trade today for 200g of marsc. cherry. so i'm going to have that, i've heard good stuff about the orange soda too but i'm not too sure about it. i'm not really that fond of artificial peach flavors, so i don't think tasty peach would be very good. would you suggest k-peach at all?

the thing about Tangiers is there are flavors I will like that you won't and vice versa. I have my favorites or hits but they just may not work for you. Happy smoking finding out what you like the most.

I thought about making a thread that suggested Tangiers flavors. I'd love to hear some more suggestions too. I really like K-Peach and Brambleberry.

with tangiers, i have noticed that it barely needs heat to smoke right. It surprised me, i put just one coal on(broke it in half) and i was getting super thick clouds!

No, it's just that some people can get the stuff to acclimate and others have a hell of a time. And every flavor does not acclimate at the same rate as another. Kashmir peach is one of the easiest whereas watermelon was a pita for me. Even if packs are from the same batch, they may not acclimate at the same rate in different areas.

Not sure on that one but I would imagine it would be good since your humidity doesn't fluctuate much if at all.

i think i'm leaning towards k-peach, i think i'd really like the flavor but i really hope i can get it to acclimate right. better yet, i really hope i can pack the bowl right too. i guess i'll just sit in front of my computer for an hour packing/repacking the bowl and watching john/erics video.

K-peach is one of my favorites, although it's probably a love it or hate it flavor. Hopefully you will love it. Other great flavors that I would recommend to a tangiers newbie would be Melon Blend, Pear, Horchata, or any of the mints (spearmint is awesome). I don't think I've smoked with anyone who didn't like those.

Here is what I recommend:

Horchata
Orange Soda
PassionFruit (which many of us think is what SB ripped off to make Code 69, it is very close to Tangiers Passion Fruit (which is flavor #69))
BlueGumball
Mimon
Cactus Fruit
K-Peach
K-Apple
Anything seasonal (such as solstice blends)
Anything F-Line (because its gone)

Horchata and Orange Soda. K Peach was okay for me. Horchata is my favorite tobacco hands down, and worth a good try.

haha that is so funny about passionfruit. I was smoking it the other day and was saying how much similar it tasted to code 69. Although overall i enjoy tangiers passionfruit much more.
