Default Tangiers. What happened to my flavor?

I smoked to non lucid branbelberry for the first time today and the flavor was lacking. I use banned vendor coals with a freshly cleaned pipe and hose and really only got a faint hint of sweet flavor. I got big thick clouds with no harshness, and let the tobacco acclimate over night. What did i do wrong?

Nothing. Sounds like you got a bad batch. It happens once in a while with Tangiers. I never got a batch of cocoa, lucid or otherwise, that tasted like anything other than the slightest hint of cocoa powder and a little sweetness on the best days.

I know for a fact that if you have tobacco that you cannot get to acclimate you can send it to Eric and he will check it out to see if anything is wrong with it. Check out the actual Tangiers site and see what it says about this.

Bummer! I would try contacting the vendor who sold it to you first, and if you have no luck with them, try Tangiers.

It is not you, I have the same issues ..

You could try the place you ordered from first, but most likely it will be from the same batch and therefore you will get the same results.

I'm glad to see you speaking your mind about it .. let us know how it goes!? If all else fails, there are plenty of other brands that deliver right out of the box, no acclimation, no special bowl, no silly song and dance required.

Good Luck!

Just thought this deserved a QFTMFT!

I am interested as well in knowing how it goes. I do like the fact that Eric stands by his product and will test it out to see if something is wrong. My question about that, what if he finds nothing wrong, but you say it lacks in flavor?

Something i am afraid of. I have smoked Lucid horchata and orange soda and both were awesome with strong delicious flavor so I'm assuming the regular line should yield similar results.

I spoke with Eric and he said that if you live in a really humid area that it can take up to a full 24 hours to fully acclimate. I let it acclimate for a full 24 hours spread out on waxed paper, on top of the eight hours I already let it sit out. It is smoking awesome right now.

So you got it to work, it was just an issue with acclimation?

Tangiers is not a "lock and load" product, but with a little practice (and actually reading and following directions, including contacting the manufacturer) people in any area can get it to smoke right. Glad you got it down.
