Default what is another good tobacco with thick clouds and good flavor

I have been smoking only starbuzz for the past 2 years, thats the only thing sold around me without having to go buy it online, but I was wondering if there were any other brands with good flavor and thick clouds, that might be alittle cheaper than the starbuzz brand

Social Smoke is comparable to Starbuzz, and better imo; it's the same style cut and has strong flavors and produces huge clouds. I smoke Al Fakher from time to time and that generally produces good clouds and good flavor, though recently I've been hearing about all kinds of issues with the brand. You could also try the Nakhla Mizo line. Or Tangiers, even though it can be a pain to set up right.

I love Starbuzz, but as a "cheap" alternative, I smoke Al Fakher and HookH-HookaH. They both produce nice big clouds, and have amazing flavours. I smoke a little bit of Nakhla now and again, the clouds are nice but the flavours are sort of a hit and miss for me. Pharoah's isn't bad either. It can be compared to Al Fakher in terms of being highly dyed and sticky, but the flavours are good clouds aren't as big though.

Social Smoke puts Al Fakher and "Hookh-HookaH" to shame.

usually big clouds, lack the best flavor, if you want a happy medium go for Nakhla
clouds are a produced from chemicals, not taste
the best tasting tobaccos, have smaller clouds

Didn't he ask for a "cheap" alternative that would give him big clouds?
Social Smoke runs about the same as starbuzz..

Nakhla great taste, monster clouds, cheap enough to get a kilo for around 20 bucks.

I beg to differ. Salloum and Cleopatra produce huge clouds and do not lack any flavor. They do not taste like chemicals either.

I just don't understand why so many people are so into clouds. The truth is that clouds are made glycerin (the stuff they put in smoke machines) so if you get huge clouds you buying mostly glycerin rather then tobacco and getting ripped off. Once you get away from the super heavily processed junk and actually start smoking real moassel youíll notice while you get less smoke you often have thicker smoke with real texture. You also wonít get a film covering your mouth which is a real plus in my book.

In any case, smoking should be about tastes and textures that food/drink canít provide and good tobacco can give you rich and complicated flavours you canít get any other way.

I really wish more people would take a break from $15+ plus cans of artificially flavoured stuff that lacks any tobacco qualities at all and try something with a bit of character. Light bodied and very cheap Virginian leaf boiled into cellulose mush and drowned in glycerine and articial flavours shouldnít be the be all and in end all of this hobby. Unfortunately, that is the case for 90%+ of the narghile fans in the West and that, to me, is a shame.

Tangiers or Nak Mizo will give you incredible clouds if set-up properly.
