    Arak sounds like such a good drink. I ended my year with the very last of my ice apple, and now I'm starting the new year giving ice raspberry another chance, and I'm liking it more now, gonna clean out these hoses again soon since my new shipment is coming in soon, kind of hope I win that Prometheus hookah as well, I mean its a nice hookah and I want to see if the pressure system has any impact, but damn they're pricey

    Messed with the cocourth cubes again, for me personally they're ideal for nakhla out of the Egyptian I have, I usually go two rounds of titanium flats but this works out when I'm lazy, just had ice apple, went the full round with a wind cover at the end and it should be all burnt out by now

    I've tried to like ice raspberry, but its just too sweet for me, it was a good batch too. I'll keep it on hand and try it for mixes or something but not my cup of tea unfortunately, ended up packing some AF orange mint in my alien real quick while the coals were still big since I couldn't stomach the raspberry, This was probably my second or third try though.

    Latest Shisha Order Thread

    I wanted to wait on my order so I could save up and get the 10k pack of titanium's, but HJ just made a video for that raffle so I just placed an order now, took the liberty to finally order some titanium cubes which I've never tried, and got a pack of CHX coals to try. 250g of nakhla lemon and mint, a pack of alchemist blend peppermint mocha, Tangier's birquq orange soda (can't believe it'll be my first time trying orange soda) a box of canary's just to be on the safe side and some new brushes to clean, mine are about a year old and are really worn down

    That's an awesome birthday present to yourself So I just finished a second round of coals on this hookah-hookah cinnamon and I'm in love. It's almost as good as Social Smoke's cinnamon and I wish I had more. I'm hoping my KM and my Zahrara hookahs get here no later than tomorrow so I can enjoy Christmas on a brand new hookah. [emoji4][emoji4] The KM was shipped first but only one day earlier than the Zahrara. So excited! I was looking at the new shika v4's they have out but I think I'll hold off on a new hookah myself, I only got the sorya a few months ago really lol.

    Damn I forgot how good AF orange mint was, simple as hell but so good. On my second round and I'll probably set up another bowl of it

    Finally cracked open the AF orange mint, ran out of blueberry mint, I feel like a 250 gram pack of nakhla lasts quite a bit longer than the juicer stuff like this, even thought I find it can't go two rounds without a heavy dense pack it still goes a long way, I'm not sure how my ice apple lasted longer than blueberry mint when I cracked open the ice apple sooner. I just thought that was kind of interesting, AF was my favorite brand in comparison to all the other juicy brands, but I'm starting to favor other stuff like nakhla. Still good stuff especially if I want a lighter smoke. Wanna try to get my hands on more alchemist blend and maybe try fumari again. Anybody have ideas for floral flavors? I wanted to try nakhla jasmine but I doubt I'll find it fresh, heard some mixed things on AF jasmine and I had fumari jasmine when I first started but don't remember much. I know there's Tangier's regal flower but it sounds a bit too strong for me.

    I'm glad I got so much nakhla on my last order, I've been smoking a bit more moderately lately and I just have so much left, still haven't tried mizo raspberry yet or cracked the AF orange mint open. The only downside was my 250 pack of coffee was expired and so are all my samples for nakhla, I didn't bother complaining to HS, I just won't order tobacco from them again lol. Next order will probably be from john since I've never had a problem and I wanna get some alchemist blend

    Nice MZ and hose, never tried the mistique ice tip. Must be nice having that new hookah room too lol Mystique beats the shit out of the mya freeze. I wouldn't even call that a hose. I usually order the ice tip at lounges and it always makes the session more fun I've always wanted to get one myself but just never had the heart to go through with it lmao, I'm sure it works well though

    Finally cracked open my nakhla orange peach. Thankfully its not expired lmao. I think its pretty solid, I got it in the 80ft because I think its a bit too juicy for the Egyptian. Smoking very well

    If I had a lotus I'd rather get that than a silicon bowl, something about them worries me and makes me want to stay away lol. Smoking AF blueberry mint

    I'm not sure if I mentioned how I've been packing nakhla lately but I've gotten it to work great to my preference by starting with a fluff over pack, then I just mash it in the bowl with my palm, out of an Egyptian that is. Depending on how much it'll be just below the rim or right up on it, then I just clear up the center hole and keep pressing it down so its as tight as I can get it packed in there. I get tons of flavor and decent smoke that grows over time becoming pretty large. Lasts a good two rounds and possibly a third but I haven't tried out of this pretty wide and shallow Egyptian. This pack has just made nakhla so enjoyable for me. Smoking double Apple currently

    Nice, I mean you were pretty quick with getting those reviews out after getting those samples but that's surprising they just brought you on boars so quick, and that they are even getting a review community together in general. They kept going on and on about my written stuff and pushed me to do videos. I've known for a few weeks but it's finally official. People like you help me out by watching though so thanks again [emoji109] They are moving fast but I think they can compensate since their stuff is flying off the shelves at hookahjohn. Yeah no problem, I mean I like the more detailed reviews, I think the community needs more reviewers that'll not be so ambiguous and do more than just what starbuzz comes out with. But that's just how I feel on it.

    I used to like AF double apple a lot more, but with nakhla DA being more suited to my preference and alchemist blend having their really good version out I think AF's is negligible now, if it wasn't already. Just my opinion on that. Smoking some now after having two rounds on nak DA a couple hours ago. I kind of notice almost a fruit loops kind of taste to this though lol

    Favorite flavors

    A recent favorite of mine might just have to be nakhla ice apple. Really enjoyable with a strong bright green apple flavor that I can just smoke all the time. I always try to keep double apple by one brand or another on hand, it might not be an everyday smoke for me but sometimes I just crave that rich sweet flavor lol. I used to be pretty into straight mint but I find myself getting tired of them pretty quickly because in my opinion, they can be boring at times. But what-a-mint by haze is probably one that I really enjoy by itself. And I am a big fan of citrus mints as well.

    I was with some friends the other day and one of their friends had a pack of tirimisu or however its spelled, from the vintage line, I couldn't get a really good feel for it because these guys don't know how to clean their hookahs out and used quick lights, so I didn't get to see its full potential. One of the hookahs had this brown stain along the inside of the base at the water line which I presume is from adding weed to the bowl, on top of not properly cleaning it. I guess that's the only bad thing about getting into this hobby. It's a big process and takes time to get the safest and most pleasant experience from it. I think it's been about two years for me personally and I'm still learning something new all the time lol. Its just rough that hookah isn't so beginner friendly. I tried to help the other guy and convinced him to invest in a KM, it's a nice medium shamadan. But he doesn't clean it properly despite what I've said and uses a egy bowl that cracked at the base which he "fixed" with duct tape.. I gave him a spare egy I had that holds enough for one round but he'd rather use one with duct tape? I feel like letting that heat up and inhaling through it could be hazardous but some people don't listen. And that same day another guy tried to argue that I'm in denial for saying hookah isn't like smoking 100 cigarettes just for asking him to back that statement up, this is why I prefer to smoke alone lol. Anyways sorry for the rant, I guess it just sucks that hookah is still pretty niche and everything.

    Had a friend over and let him try some ice apple and AF blueberry mint, he liked both but really took to the blueberry mint, I'm smoking more of it by myself now I'm too scared to try leaving it in the standard packaging because I've yet to have one with a cap that actually stays on it, like the old one. But I can say the reusable and washable alchemist blend packs are great and I'm using that instead

    I'm glad I decided to get 500 grams of ice apple this time around, been taking it easier on the hookah smoking lately so it should last me even longer. Smoking some now before work, night shifts a killer lol. This latest order should last me awhile though, thankfully nakhla is so good and cheap

    That sucks.. It's no big deal really, I'm much happier after cracking open my nakhla double apple and seeing it juicer than I've ever gotten it, so doing an AF nak double Apple mix
