Default Where's the flavor?

I was noticing earlier today that when you let the smoke slowly roll out of your mouth, I taste almost nothing until I fully exhale. So I'm wondering where the taste actually is in the smoke.

I was thinking that it might be that the smoke itself doesn't taste like much of anything and it's just the vapor from the juices that has the taste. But I don't know. What do you think?

from my understanding, the smoke IS the vapors from the juice. since the tobacco isnt (note: shouldnt) be burning, its all just vapor.

I mean, it can't JUST be vapor, otherwise it'd be significantly healthier than smoking cigarettes, but it isn't. Plus, the tobacco is eventually 'burnt', although not all at once as if it were lit with open flame.

the burnt tabbacy to my understanding is more closely related to being thougahly dried out, rather then burnt. which is why it doesnt taste like burnt plant.

im sure the smoke has something to do with it, but im betting my money that magic has a large role in the flavor part of your question.

i think this has to do with how you exhale and your taste buds. if you blow it out your nose you get a lot more "flavor" though it may taste different than it leaving your mouth. Also sweet notes would feel like they are the last to be picked up because you taste sweet with the tip of your tongue.
