Default Starbuzz = Al Waha

Not sure if you guys knew this (kinda an Industry secret) but Starbuzz is just reprocessed Al Waha. Anyone ever wonder why the 250g sizes of Al Waha are so hard to find? It's because Starbuzz buys them all out. They take the tobacco, and just add more glycerin, flavored syrup, etc. Not sure whether or not they wash the tobacco before adding more glycerin/syrup.

Thoughts?

I've heard rumors about different makers taking someone else's product and re-processing it but I never knew how to tell if the rumors are true or not. I am wondering if my good friend Jimmy heard this thing about Star Buzz from someone that works for Al Waha?

well i dont want to jump in but that is wrong...
1 if it was the tobacco leaves would be a larger cut, al waha is a smaller cut as al fakher
2 the only reson al waha is hard to find is due to the fact that there is no real market for it any more.... so distrubors dont realy want to carry it any more...
3 starbuzz is cut, prossesed, molasized, and packed in fullerton, ca

just a thought.

Well I have no idea what to think about the whole issue of re-processing but HP brigs up something that does interest me and that is manufacturing processes. Something that I would love is to take a tour of a mu'essel plant and seeing first hand how things are done. The neatest part of pipe and cigar magazines is when they wonder around some factory or plantation chatting with the owners yet none of the mu'essel producers have anything about that on their websites which are rather uninteresting when they don't have a sale of something i'm interested in.

Thanks for the suggestion HP. I'd love to take a tour of any factory and just get any idea about how it works so i'll drop Tangiers a line.
