The Experience

This tobacco was reviewed while smoking it from an HJ Mini Alien Phunnel bowl with Chronic Hookah Natural coals. It is a nice mild smoke that can be enjoyed by almost anybody, no matter what their flavor preference. Typical to Tangiers tobacco, it is a low heat tobacco and will burn if you are not thoughtful of your heat. When smoked properly the flavor will last for almost the entirety of the smoke production.

The Flavor

Since the tobacco smells like a mix of melon and citrus, I would compare the flavor to that of a passion fruit. The flavor has the sweetness found in melon flavors backed with a bite you would find in citrus flavors. The sweat and sour components of the flavor are balanced in a way that anybody can enjoy this flavor at any time. The flavor is not over whelming and doesn’t leave you asking for more.  Since this is a washed tobacco that contains little nicotine, this is one tobacco that should be in everyone’s stash.

The Insight

This is one damn good flavor. I think it  is one of Tangiers’ best Lucid flavors at that.Whether you are sitting in a park on a hot summer day or locked in a basement during a cold slurry, this flavor is very enjoyable.

Who Should Try This Flavor

People that prefer citrus flavors will love this flavor just as much as the people that find themselves gravitating toward the more sweet and candy like tobaccos that are out there. Vets and noobs alike should enjoys this flavor.
