After my first attempt failed, I tried again just now. I used the tips provided with a very small spoonfull of honey, no glycerin. I used 4 ******* Hookah coals and a standard Egyptian bowl as opposed to the normal Phunnel/Vortex. I gave the bowl time to heat up. After that, I took rapid draws to fire the bowl up. As the bowl heated, the taste and smoke picked up. The taste in my opinion is a very unique taste, very bitter as opposed to sweet. It's not bad, but in my honest opinion Shooting Star blows this away in every way possible. However, it is enjoyable for those who like black mo'assel, and will make you feel very relaxed, indeed. Thanks for the tips guys!
END OF SESSION EDIT: Well I just finished smoking, and Salloum is personally not for me. The session was good, but I just didn't like the taste. Shooting Star for the world!!!!!
