Re: nakhla or al fakher?
really it comes down to your preference.
AF- Very wet tobacco, always dyed (cept their soft black), washed so smaller buzz, more expensive, good flavors but a little on the inconsistant side. Heat sensitive, but very easy to manage heat.
Nakhla- more greesy than wet, almost never dyed, unwashed so packs a relaxing smoke buzz, cheap, great flavors and always consistant, almost every flavor they make has a very subtle tobacco note that is almost NEVER found in AF because it is always covvered up by their flavors/glycerin. Can take a lot of heat NP.
Me personally, I enjoy Nakhla a lot more. Its cheaper and there is no real mess made when packing abowl because its not overflowing with drippiness. But I do smoke AF quite often when friends are over who dont smoke often, or for more pronounced/stronger flavors.
