Hookah1 and Texas Hookah both carry Desi Murli. I wouldn't equate it to cigar smoke, but more of a sipping shisha. It still has the feel of shisha, but also has a rich and intricate tobacco taste(not unlike cigars). Its amazing to explore and enjoy at liesure. Don't make any plans.
I wish I had had the opportunity to enjoy the Shooting Star phenomenon, but I can understand where people are coming from with the rave reviews. Its like the microbrew of shisha. I'm waiting to see if these AZ mini tins are going to become a reality before I take the $40 plunge.
