Default Sucessful Tangiers Noir.

Well if anybody remembers I ordered 750g of tangiers and some coconara a little while back. I have been smoking it for a bit and have had great success. That is if you disregard that humidity freaking out everytime I order tangiers...

First was the Lucid horchata. Love it. New favorite.
Second was a 50/50 blend of the lucid cocoa and the classic cocoa. Smoked well but there was a near total lack of flavor. Going to try it again once the humidity stops pinballing.

Lastly we have the Peach iced tea. Classic. No Lucid blend. Tasty, big clouds, strong flavor and it kicked like a mule. I am used toa buzz and enjoy one but this came on really fast. I did not get sick like I have once or twice from some other high nicotine sessions but I was bordering. I blame a lot of this on the fact that I don't pace myself and rarely remember to do so...

So in conclusion it was great. Only a slight tickle which I can assume is a result of the odd humidity since it is usually an acclimation problem and I need to acclimate every day I want to smoke just to keep them smelling right.

That's awesome that you have had great sessions with Tangiers. Lucid Cocoa was bland you say? Damn a lot of people have been saying Lucid is very bland and I am one of those people.

Oh btw and the "tingle" with Tangiers is completely normal. I guess it just comes with the tobacco.

The Lucid line has taste! The Tasty Peach I have is very intense; a very good flavor if you ask me.

i dont get a tingle anymore?

also humidity will most definitely mess with the flavors. i had to let k-cherry acclimate extra long. Before I did it it literally felt like there was acid flying into my throat (wasnt a harsh smoke but acidic almost, weird)

glad you like the stuff

Just to clarify I got almost no flavor from both the classic noir cocoa and the lucid.

i thought the lucid horchata had some wicked flavor, but the cinnamon was very tickly.

Booyaka Nakhla. Love the margarita. Too bad a couple room mates of my friends decided to take it upon themselves and steal about 500 grams of my shihsa 200 or so of which was my margarita... ;_;

that sucks man. I'd hunt my friends down.
I like nakhla more than noir tangiers. More flavors, easier to pack, etc etc.
The pistachio is my fav.

I don't know about that one.

Most places only carry a few of their flavors, but if you go down to Eric's in person, there about ninety-nine Noir-style flavors to choose from.

tangiers is good stuff if you want that specific smoke it gives off and there flavors arent tooo fruity.. bc im not a fan of fruity.. but if u want a nice tasty smoke some fruity stuff then you go for like af.. or sumthing.. but like u cant compare tangiers to anything else.. bc unles its just me it gives off like a different smoke something about it..

just a quick question about tangiers.. if I were to mix it with AF so I would get used to it, would I put more AF in it or more tangiers? and how should I pack the bowl?

just pack it pretty high, like normal AF , should be ok. I think i did like 60/40 when i blended. I mixed them on some foil, then put them back into the bowl

I'd say it depends on how easily nicotine affects you. If you are a long term smoker with moderate tolerance than 50/50 should be a good starting point. If you are new I would agree with the others and go closer to 60/40.

As I expressed, I like Tangiers and Nakhla just about the same. I think I will rate tangiers down one since the ease of use is lacking but up one for great smoke, longevity and flavor (excluding the cocoa I have) Naklha I am going to rate down one for the heavy feelings I get in my lungs when smoking it. I can only draw so deep for so long before it's too much. And I will rate them up one for flavors, buzz and price. So all in all they both have their benefits.

Juno, is that number realistic?

Iamscott, Oh trust me I am going to try that mix. Iced peach tea/horchata was great. I am waiting until I can get cocoa to smoke well and be flavorful before I try mixing it.

I had mixed maraschino cherry tangiers with AF vanilla and it was nice but no buzz as I only put a bit in there. Will try the 60/40 next
