It's the most disgusting flavour and doesn't taste anything like apples.
They should call it black licquorice or blackjack flavour.
Only smoke Nakhla Double Apple if you want a shisha which is gonna taste horrible and give you a huge headache.
I truly think Double Apple is what hookah tobacco noobs run into and may dislike intially because they are expecting the flavor of biting into an apple. Double apple is much more complicated a flavor when done properly.
It has anise, which is an acquired taste - it rarely finds its way to an american palate save artificially or added to a liqour.
To someone new to hookah, and someone who only desires super fruit candy flavors, I would agree to stay away from Double Apple. The nicotine content is probably above a beginner's tolerance, and the flavor is just a little more traditional than say starbuzz hooker code 69. A hipster smoker may not develop a the ability to appreciate certain flavors, but one who stays at it will learn to not just taste the anise additions.
Then again, anise may never grow on you.
