Default First to post a prob

So while the site was down, I smoked my new shipment of Nakhla. I have seem numerous post about people smoking and getting little to know flavor but had never experienced it until smoking this new nak. Two bowls tasted exactly the same, like a slight soap taste with little to no flavor and wispy clouds. Im using a Regal Melch, Crown Jewel, 1 layer of foil, 2 fantasia coals, nammor hose. I know people have suggested that it is an air leak and I can't find that being the problem anywhere. I did wash my stem using soap after the previous session before that one, could that be the problem?

Yes washing your stem or bowl could of left the flavor of soap after washing it. Try washing your stem with lemon and baking soda. Also what flavors were you smoking?

Sounds like not nearly enough heat to me.

Usually 2 fantasia coals are more than enough heat, I start with two to get going then go own to one when it gets harsh. Fantasia coals are very large.

Also I was smoking peach first and it just tasted repulsive then I went to cherry, and same exact taste, just with a hint on cherry flavor.

lemon juice any insides that are not sensitive to acidics+washable hoses and do a extensive cleaning of your rig and experiment with heat/foil/bowls/coal/etc.

The only time I had no flavor was when I got an extremely old box of el Hennawy. Even the almighty Nakhla can lose flavor if it gets old enough.

I had the same problem with nakhla a while back. I was getting the same soapy taste from every nakhla flavor I smoked and im pretty sure I had sufficient heat on the bowl. Turns out all the 50g packs that I was smoking were really old and I guess the flavor had gone bad.

I'll be the one to say it.. If this is Nak Mizo I'll be honest, there is a slight odd quality to the taste that some describe as soupy. Personally I really like Nak Mizo but I do understand why people say this. So I'm thinking that as well as too little heat or an underpack could be your problems.

Only had this issue with EL Basha Grape. Was just nasty. Tasted like raisins with soap.

See I have some El Basha Grape and it tastes like Grape kool-aid. lol. I don't get a soapy taste at all. Maybe it depends on the batch and when it was made?

Typically for nakhla I dense, slightly over pack, 2 coals, and a windcover on and off. Smokes just fine for me.

It wasn't mizo just regular Nak. My Nak Mizo mint is wonderful. I keep hearing people say they are getting ond nak. It was ordered from a respectable site so I hope this is not the case. Where is the date printed at so I can check?

Nak doesn't print the dates on their boxes.
