Can some types of cigar tobacco be used to make decent shisha ? I have some Bezuki wrapper that I don't use , was wondering if I can use that ?
I also have various cigar tobacco scraps that I can use for loose fill cigars or can I use that for shisha as well ?

Do you inhale? If so maybe not. If not maybe so. You have to get in there. Just don't die on us man.
Hmm, okay so it's not a good idea. Cigar tobacco is too strong for hookah, just thought I would ask.
I was just exploring my options so I'll be using Bezuki as filler along with the scraps.

Thanks

What I mean is that I will be using all as filler for loose fill cigars.

Have a look at these two threads by @istanbulin. Of the Black Sea varieties (in the Samsun family), probably Trabzon would come closest. @skychaser carries Trabzon seed.

You can try to use cigar leaf for shisha, either full or mixed with more bright leaves or oriental or cavendish (you could even try to use cigar leaf cavendish).
Just try and don't forget to report the experience, it might be helpful for others.

P.S. take care, since cigar tobacco is often "strong"

I've given up on this idea and if I do decided to make shisha it'll be with the proper tobacco.
