Just tried some alchemist apple dulce...holy shit it is bad. I couldn't get past the first 5 pulls. All I got was a mouthful of diacytal. I'm going to try it one more time at some point with a different set up before I shit can it. Now I'm just falling back to my reliable nakhla ice grape mint. going to smoke this in a corner while rocking myself back n forth in an attempt to comfort myself after that traumatizing experience

Lol. I'm sorry I don't mean to laugh but

That's the funniest thing I've read in a long time. I could just picture it... So that bad huh?

Wait. Wait. Wait.... 118" projector??? And you are watching YouTube? Dude I would so be watching porn with that thing. It would be lifelike.

I know I have like 12 new flavors I haven't opened yet, but tonight was just one of those "fuck it" days and I decided to go with some the king house mix, the fake lotus on my half-broken funnel with my HBM Egyptian hookah and the namoor hose. Oh yeah and some cheap vodka; LOTS of it.

You'd think I would be excited to be working on a project with an Emmy winner, but meh.

It was supposed to be humorous so mission accomplished

Apple dulce Attempt # 2 - this time around I have had more success. I got rid of the plastic the tobacco was in and emptied it into the tub and mixed it thoroughly. No harsh hits. Flavor wise, it's definitely sweet with a green apple undertone. I won't be throwing out this flavor after all but it won't be in my permanent rotation. Something I'll buy once in a while.

Good to hear. I hope they change the packaging. It does not mix well in it just like af special edition

Finishing a nakhla orange bowl from earlier today where I only used one round of coals. I'm ready to pack a second bowl but not sure what I want to smoke with all these new flavors.

Isn't that when you smoke only one flavor from that pipe and nothing else? If so then yeah but I usually hear about it just for hoses; one for mint, and for floral and spice flavors and another one for fruits.

If you never wash it sure but stainless steel doesn't retain flavor. Most cases of seasoned pipes are wooden like Iranian or indian hookahs. You can have a hookah dedicated to a flavor but for it to be seasoned is a whole different term. Unglazed bowls are deemed as seasoned as the clay absorbs the flavors.

Yeah I'd rather go with an unglazed bowl, idk if the hose matters much I think you can ghost any hose. I've seen a video where this guy took the tobacco juice and rubbed it against the inside walls to season it up faster

Ah so kinda like an iron cast skillet which also has to be seasoned or a wok.

Wow that's... Interesting. I would imagine it wasn't a washable hose because you can get rid of the ghosting from those hoses.

Oops, I meant the inside of the walls of an unglazed bowl not a hose, sorry if I gave out the wrong idea lol

Gosh, I've been missing from here for so long. Sorry guys, my daughter is finally at the age that she can run around and talk so I've had my hands full. Anyway, it's my birthday today so I    am doing nothing but smoking hookah and drinking beer. Starting the day off with some AF Mint  with Cream

Made an awesome pot roast in my new power pressure cooker XL and it must be the best meal I've ever made. It knocked down my turkey breast from second place.

So I'm smoking a nice bowl of haze still smokin. It tastes like a jolly rancher with spices.

Tonight I'm chilling with the Fumo and some afzal pan raas mixed with some Ayam Zaman double Apple. Weird mix but spicy enough for my taste.

Tried out the haze pineapple krush first and it has been a huge let down. Medium flavor, hot smoke, and in my opinion one of the worst attempts at pineapple. This isn't user error this is haze dropping the ball. Advise against this flavor immensely. Haze is usually so much better than this

Just finished hookah-hookah guava peach and the formula has changed for the better. No dry long leaf shit this is now like hookafina and black leaf tobacco. Super finely chopped lots of honey and glycerin and a significant buzz for me. I need to get my tolerance back because this hit me hard.

Smoking some AF mint for the first time in a long while, probably my personal favorite mint, I really missed it, using my tangiers small with foil and three titanium's, out of the km silk butterfly, haven't used my shika since I found the hose port to have a leak, it works but I'll worry about it some other time lol

Currently smoking Social Smoke Pear Chill!  I've never smoked it without mixing it with something, but I think that's going to change.  Mmmm... I'm a fan of pears.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that brand kicked back with the nicotine. Just remember when you try Apple Jax that it also has a strong cinnamon taste so that's double the whammy

Don't know why but the past two nights be been having a not so good smoking experience. I know it's just me but damnit the whole point is to relax lol.

Same here. My last review was the last time I had good clouds. Tried going to glass for air tight fittings and still nothing spectacular. Full flavor of course but if I don't get a certain amount of cloud output I don't feel satisfied lol.

I think we should both clean or hookahs really well. Could be as simple as that.

Funny that you said that but that's how it has been for me too. Great flavor but not so great clouds. I thought it was a loose connection somewhere but nope. And then for some reason the freaking Leo naras have been completely going out on me ten minutes into the session for the past 3 nights. Not happy.

Tomorrow I'm smoking out of the KM and might as well use my minzari again since I'm banned from smoking in the basement at least late at night.

That sucks I've had similar experiences with Leo's lately. I think they downgraded. I still have a quarter of my box sitting in my kitchen as backups. If I windcover the bowl they seem to respond better to staying lit but coals shouldn't fight you that's so annoying. When it happens to me I ask the gf for a cancer stick so my stress can go down lol it's the only time I'll smoke a cig nowadays.
