Default Re: Salloum

Brand and Flavor: Salloum Cherry

Shisha Cut: Small/med cut, few stems, sticky/wet

Hookah Type: 28 inch KM Dual tone

Duration: 1 hour

Bowl: Small Lebanese bowl

Foil / Screen: 1 hookah foil

Coal / Amount: 2 CH QL's windcover last 20min

Smoke: thick

Buzz: minimal buzz, relaxing

Smell / Flavor: in the jar didnt really smell like cherry, had a waxy almost candle like smell to it. like a scented candle that had lost most of its scent. Smoke taste was very light, again kind of a waxy taste to it. not very much cherry taste, some tobacco undertones but was dissapointed in the cherry taste. kept hoping for the cherry to develop but it never did, just faint cherry/waxish flavor.
Rating (1 to 10): 6 mostly for the clouds and tobacco undertone. Will try again at a later date to see if maybe it changes.

Default Re: Salloum

Brand and Flavor: Salloum Watermelon

Shisha Cut: Small, dark red dye (black with red hue I like to say), wet (not gooey)

Hookah Type: Mya Mini

Duration: over an Hour

Bowl: Small Phunnel + Mod

Foil / Screen: HD

Coal / Amount: 3 Awa'el Coco

Smoke: Thick, dense

Buzz: None (if so, very light, but I had a couple beers)

Smell / Flavor: The smell is a tangy watermelon, you can easily tell what it is, but it doesn't have the candy chemical smell that most watermelon flavors contain. It's a sweet, medium strength flavor when smelling it. The flavor is sweet and slightly tart, but also very smooth and very natural. It has a slight odd taste I could not put my finger on, but not one that is disgusting or distracting from the over-all flavor.

Rating (1 to 10): 8/10. I like SB better, but to each his own, right? If I had to buy a new Watermelon flavor, I would go with Salloum based on price though.

Default Re: Salloum

Brand and Flavor: Salloum Mango

Shisha Cut: Small, black tobacco, wet and juicy (not gooey)

Hookah Type: Mya Mini

Duration: 90 minutes

Bowl: Small Phunnel + Mod

Foil / Screen: HD

Coal / Amount: 3 ******* Hookah Coals

Smoke: Very thick, medium dissipation

Buzz: Nahp

Smell / Flavor: It is the best smelling mango I have ever smelled. The only smell you get from this flavor is fresh cut Mango. It is a little bit weaker then a fresh cut mango, but still perfect. It tastes like it smells, only a tiny bit weaker. It's delicious, nonetheless. Fumari Mango and Salloum are two different mango flavors, equally as good - but in regards to price, Salloum is what I'll be buying.

Rating (1 to 10): 10. Obviously, a 10. Buy it and try it!

Default Re: Salloum

Brand and Flavor:Salloum Coconut

Shisha Cut: Med cut, mix of dark and light tobacco

Hookah Type:24 AF

Duration:1 1/2 hours

Bowl:Small Tangiers

Foil / Screen:1 precut foil

Coal / Amount:3 cocnaras, 2 down 1 on its side

Smoke:thick white lingering clouds

Buzz:minimal

Smell / Flavor: In the jar smells very sweet and strong coconut scent. Reminds me of the tanning lotion but really nice. The taste is very natural, its not a sweet candy taste, its like fresh coconut that has been shaved from the shell. Its very natural tasting so if you expecting a candy sweet coconut you will be disappointed. I however am not disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed this tobacco, its mild sweetness and pleasant room aroma was very relaxing and enjoyable. I recommend this to anyone looking for a natural tasting, traditional smoke

Rating (1 to 10): I would rate this between 8-9

Brand and Flavor: Salloum Mint

Shisha Cut: Med, dark brown, sticky, some stems

Hookah Type: 32" KM Precision Shamshadan

Duration: 1 hour

Bowl: Egyptian

Foil / Screen: 2 Layers HS

Coal / Amount: 3 Coco Nara's

Smoke: Medium, somewhat thin, disappear quickly

Buzz: Very little

Smell / Flavor: Smells like a mix of something and mint, but don't know what. Not really bad, but certainly unexpected.

Rating (1 to 10): 7...Interesting flavor, it's like mint with a floral mix, but the mint is an undertone...Deducted 3 points mainly because the smell is unexpected and the flavor isn't predominantly mint...The flavor gives just enough of that mint burn, but the floral seems to overpower a bit...I would probably use this as a mixer rather than smoking it straight since I'm not a big fan of the floral taste. If you're looking for a real mint I'd go for AF or Nakhla...

Hookah Type: AF small solid with cold water,no ice.

Duration: 70 minutes

Bowl: large egyptian

Foil / Screen: single layer of foil

Coal / Amount: 2 layalina Quick Lites

Smoke: light to medium ,nice clouds

Smell / Flavor: smells like it has been roasted with a wood fire,slightly smokey smell. As for flavor,you can taste the tobacco and at the same time taste mollasses.

Rating (1 to 10): when ordering this, I wasn't sure if I should have. upon opening I found the date on the box said 2006,(-1 point)discovering the brick inside was dried out, After placing the brick in a large baggy I added 1 oz of glycerine and about 1/2 oz of honey to the entire 250 grams and run under warm water to work in ingredients.(-1 point). some stem pieces were thick and 2 inches long(-1 point).
After all is said and done, 7/10,will def order this again, but would like to see what it's like fresh. for an enhanced flavor try this with coffee.

Hookah Type: KM "4 door" green double pear

Duration: 2 hours

Bowl: Vortex

Foil / Screen: 2 layers reg foil

Coal / Amount: 2 coconaras

Smoke: Medium

Buzz: Slight buzz, more then Nak, less then Tangiers.

Smell / Flavor: Another delicious smell, very sweet and appley, taste was the same. Mild and no anise at all.

Default Re: Salloum

Brand and Flavor: Salloum Barheny Apple

Shisha Cut: Moderately dry, a fineish cut with few stems.

Hookah Type: Mya Qt

Duration: So far an hour give or take and still going strong

Bowl: Jumbo Mya Bowl

Foil / Screen: Cheap walmart foil

Coal / Amount: 2 CH Natural coals

Smoke: A good amount of smoke. Nice clouds

Buzz: So far a slight sleepy buzz.

Smell / Flavor: The smell was a bit like apples. It wasn't too strong for me, but I've also been sick and I'm betting my stuffed up sinuses don't contribute to that. The flavor is pretty good. I mainly have gotten the sweet apple taste with a tinge of anise aftertaste. All in all it is a good combination that isn't overpowering in either flavor. It is the perfect mix of the two flavors.

Rating (1 to 10): 8 It took a bit to get going but once it got started it has been a very relaxing smoke. A nice way to step towards a more traditional shisha. I would recommend it to people who are interested in smoking a more traditional tobacco and are also interested in starting to experiment with flavors with anise in it. It has enough to make it noticeable but it isn't nearly enough to deter someone from the flavor altogether. A good starter in both areas. Highly recommended for those two aspects.
