No, it's not about the clouds. I strongly prefer my Vortex or Phunnel to a standard egyptian bowl. Nakhla normally doesn't do real well in those bowls. But, since adding a touch of extra molasses to the tobacco, I'm getting really rich sessions out of the other bowls. And, the flavor is lasting nearly twice as long. But, the molasses also seems to thin the smoke after a short while. So, I'm considering adding a touch of glycerin as well to see if it balances things out.
Love the taste of Nakhla. Hate being restricted to a standard egyptian bowl.
