Got a 250 of nakhla sweet melon and packed it loosely to the top of the spire in the middle of a vortex and it was the best smoke ive had yet, i used two coco naras and a wind cover that i took off once the bowl was heated up, and put back on when the coals were dying, it worked soo well, the flavor was perfect, no harshness, big smoke.
And then i tried the exact same thing the next day and it was garbage
Ive since smoked a few other shishas to try and clear the palette, cleaned everything out then gave it a go again and still nothin like the first time. I think its either the flavor acclimated and went bad or idk, the only think i can think of doing now is buying vegetable glycerin to mix in the nakhla?? Im so pissed i want it to be like that first session so bad
Ive tried packing it tighter, different hole patterns, and an egyptian bowl as well, still not working...
