nakhla-melonBrand and Flavor: Nakhla Sweet Melon

Foil / Screen: Regular foil

Coal / Amount: 2 CH QL coals

Smoke:  Medium smoke with a thick mouth feel.

Buzz:  Medium to full.

Smell / Flavor: Smells like cantaloupe.  Taste like cantaloupe.  It’s a very accurate melon flavor.  Something about it sits funny with me though.

Rating (1 to 10): 7   I know that a lot of people disagree with this rating but hear me out.  Nakhla sweet melon is one of the most highly praised shisha tobaccos you will find.  Personally I feel that the flavor, while accurate, is a bit cloying.  I can’t smoke this for too long or I get very sick of it.  I love mixing this up with other blends and seeing what I can do but alone it is a little flat.  On top of that it has an odd feeling in the lungs for me.  I usually smoke very heavy tobaccos but this one sits differently.  I’m really not sure how to describe it.  If you want a solid cantaloupe flavor that I have yet to see surpassed for accuracy then go with Nakhla sweet melon.  I can’t smoke it regularly but when I do I enjoy it.
