Default Tangiers Smeel slike Jack??? WHA??

My buddy got some green apple candy tangiers and it smells like jack daniels. Anyone else have this problem?

I am guessing acclimation is the key?

yep. When it's ready to smoke it will smell like it's flavor. Until then, it'll smell funky.

i don't think Tangiers and I would get on, as I would probably get the acclimatisation all wrong and it would smoke awful

JD flavored tobacco? I may shock that one just to smoke some JD.

Lol. But ya, that's an acclimation issue.

Noir usually has a slight chemical smell when I first get it. It generally takes no more than about 3 hours or so for it to go away.

I did exactly the same with my Tangiers for 3 days and the smell, the smoke, and the taste was horrible.

Nakhla is made in Egypt which has a completely different climate and humidity than the US, and it smokes just fine.

My big worry when I first tried tangiers that it would dry out during the acclimation process. Especially considering the -100% humidity in Vegas, but rest assured it didn't! I left mine out for about 12 hours FYI.

Its not the fact that i need a Fix right away, its just the fact that i can buy a box of Naklah off the shelf open it and not have to do anything with it and it will taste fine. So acclimating is just a pain to have to do. lol

I have about 200 grams of Lucid Horchata and I wont touch it. Every time I smoke it it kills my throat. Flavors good but it just stings. So I'll stick with Nakhla Cinnamon and Vanilla if I want anything close. And hell for both of those it's almost the same price

well not to be a hayter but ive never been ever to get tangiers to smoke right even with erik from tangiers help over the phone. I just gave up and dont care to waste my money on it ever again. and i seriously have gone through a kilo of the stuff trying to get it all right. i dont care how much aclimation you let it have or how you pack the bowl, or how much heat it always smells and tast like soy sauce and burns like hell going down.

I wouldnt Jride. IMO tangiers isnt worth it. Yuck. I have had a few different flavors of tangiers, and after this bout with the Jack Daniels smell. I think i am done. All though. I really want to try the Horchata flavor.

I have tried it acclimated and not acclimated. All of the flavors taste the same to me.

Well Hayter if you decide you don't want the green apple candy I'd be happy to take it off your hands.. y'know, since you hate Tangiers so much.

Hopefully foibled comes on to explain it in a really intricate post... but until then, Tangiers has a water content, and when it is imbalanced, it smells off. letting it sit out helps the tobacco balance itself with the surrounding atmospheric conditions, eradicating the off flavors.

acclimating isn't the hard part, it's when you realize the 250g you just bought WONT acclimate for no damn reason is what gets to you. blue gum ball, cool strawberry, and blackthorn would not acclimate at all. smelled like shit, tasted like shit. I like Tangiers, but that's just fuckin annoying.

I believe there's a secret RSS feed for the word "tangiers". Scoop used to be the usual Tangiers general but it seems foibled has taken his place

I completely agree with that. I was gonna say some flavors just don't acclimate, like I have had Clove fail every time I buy it (3 times).

I'm tempted to stick with the hand full of flavors I have. I haven't had any problems with the stuff but I admit I'm always nervous buying a new one. The only small problem I have is with Kashmir Apple. It doesn't taste bad but I really have to hunt to find any apple flavor in it.

My 78 year old father told me one day he'd take a hitfrom my rig if I could find a JD flavor.
I might have to check this out.

I couldn't get the acclimating thing down, so I just went with some Tangiers Lucid.
