Each brand has their own stellar flavors. I prefer washed tobaccos to unwashed tobaccos. I don't like the head-swimming feel I get from it.
You can bring home hookahs from Iraq, they just can't have been smoked out of. My cousin is an MP in the Army and brought one back. As well as some shisha.
I don't think you are allowed to bring back any shisha though.
Buford, you have some beautiful Mya Saray pipes there. Take good care of them!
DrunkenSatyr: Isn't smoking cigarettes smoking flavored air? Tobacco is still a flavor.
