Re: nakhla or al fakher?
I haven't tried Nakhla yet so I can't really comment, but I've been smoking AF since I started to get serious with Hookah. Made a big purchase of a few 250g's and a bunch of 50g's. Haven't tried them all yet but my favorites so far have been:
-Cardamom: Dead on flavor, great if you like the spice
-Honey: Good flavor, sweet with a hint of a floral taste, smells amazing, I always leave the bowl out after smoking, and my room just smells really nice
-White Grape or Lemon with Mint: Good mint taste, but good flavor of the accompanying flavor
-Cappuccino: Decent coffee flavor, sweet, good but not great (would like a bit more coffee flavor)
-Vanilla: smoking it now, good flavor, compares well to the SB Vanilla I was smoking last night
I have had some slight issues with heat management (using 3 coconaras on a medium vortex bowl). I find that packing a little less/lower then I initially was has helped a ton, sometimes have to take one coal off for a bit, but I find that having two coals facing down, and one on it's side is perfect.
