Default What is going on with tangiers lucid

i bought four different Tangier's lucid flavors. watermelon, horchata blueberry gum ball and Kashmir cherry. watermelon and BBG of them taste like Burnt flavors except for the Kashmir cherry it has a great strong taste, the horchata tastes very light. i don't know i think there is a bad batch or something going around of it i have contacted Tangier's tobacco and i am awaiting there response. Anybody else have the same problem?

Not to be a prick by questioning the obvious, but have you acclimated the shisha? lucid or not tangiers needs to be acclimated. lucid horchata is light for me too, but when compared to the horchata drink, its pretty light and creamy (Well for me.)

Also, maybe it might be the way it's being packed? Everyone's got their own way, so if its working for you then there shouldn't be anything wrong.

Lucid is not supposed to need acclimating, and it's supposed to be packed like any other shisha tobacco. Maybe the rules have changed, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. I have tried 6 Lucid flavors, 2 were very good, the others...not so much.

The lucid BGB i received a week ago was very nice- and you don't need to pack it like john packed his lucid in the video. Pack it regularly. He would rather smoke lucid, so he was just mimicking how to pack regular tangiers to show others who may not know.

I bought Tangiers Lucid Strawberry. Was complete crap. Tried different methods....No taste whatsoever. The smoke just tasted like air. I even acclimated and nothing changed

The tobacco didn't even smell like strawberries. I know someone who bought Lucid a well and had the same prob.

Meh, I don't think they were ready for distribution yet or Lucid has not been perfected like the regular line imo

i just got lucid watermelon too but it is fine. no acclimation needed at all. to me tangiers never really has a very strong flavor, but it still has good flavor. the tobacco itself also for the most part does not get a really strong smell to it a lot of the time but it doesnt smells off at all.

i have heard both that it needs to be acclimated and that it doesnt, john said it probably doesnt need it and i didnt need it, but my noir tangiers from him didnt need it either.

i have had a few batches before that never worked out right but i think it was more my fault than anything else

as to packing, i dont think normal tangiers even needs to be packed the way people say it does, i can pack it really tight or kinda lose and it tastes the same i just use less tobacco

you have to play around with it at first and either you get the exact way you need or you fail and probably never come back to tangiers, just the way it is

I enjoyed the horchata very much.

but like it has been said above and before.

THE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO EVER ACCLIMATE IS TANGIERS NOIR!!!!

NOT HH, NOT SB, NOT NAKHLA, NOT AF!!!

I thought I needed it a little bit of it on AZ earlier, but honestly, it really didnt need it at all.

Some have had weak flavor issues with Lucid at times. Especially when it first came out and seems like it is like MrB said, hit or miss. I smoked some Lucid Kashmir Cherry yesterday for almost two hours and it was fantastic through the entire session.

does it taste like cherry? or cough syrup?
kashmir peach is kinda spicy in a weird but cool way, cherry the same?

(sorry not trying to hijak just seeing if there is consistency in the line)

It reminded me of a spicy(similar to peach) maraschino cherry. It tastes more like maraschino than the maraschino cherry does.
