Yeah good call. I've heard that it's got a unique flavor compared to other shishas.. And I figured it would be pleasant change cause I'm tired of starbuzz and Al Fakher.. But the smell of the licorice is horrible.. I've just got to get the courage to load a bowl and see if the taste differs from the smell... I'll try it tomorrow..
