Default heavyness of tangiers smoke

does any one else think that tangiers, even the lighter flavors, just seems to have rather heavy smoke, not like it sinks, just the feeling when you smoke it.

maybe im just weird but it really seems that way to me

All of the flavors I've tried were very robust.

Yes.
I think it may have something to do with the nicotine content.
HH and HF for example, have very light smokes, while Nakhla, Fusion, and Tangiers have sort of heavy smoke. Same with cigars.
I do enjoy both HH and Tangiers though.

the tobacco used here is the culprit. it's a very robust leaf. Tangiers tries to blend the flavor and mouth feel of the natural tobacco with the flavor they add. Some blends are more successful than others at accomplishing this. Some people are a fan. I am one of them. some nights it's too much though and I just want something lighter.

You don't need to acclimate or pack it like Noir Tangiers.

Tangiers is a very hearty smoke. There are alot of people that swear by it and I think that everyone should try to smoke it at least three times before coming to a conclusion about it.

ya its weird it seems though that the more i smoke it the heartier it gets, maybe its jsut that at the lounge it was shared and QLs where as im smoking it solo and with naturals which would show the flavor difference i noticed and it seeming heavier since im smoking it more constantly
