Default Problems with AF Grenadine

Idk if its me, but maybe its because its a very strong flavor that I can't inhale too long or else it irritates my throat? (Like those strong flavors like cinnamon, Double Apple, etc)

Its not harsh at all so I know its not the coals and the smoke isn't hot at all

Do you think airing out the tub with make the juices dry out a lil so the flavor won't be as strong? Believe me, there is a LOT of glycerin and molasses in this tub. (Production Feb. 2008)

Saddens me because of love this flavor

I've been airing out the tub the whole day today and I decided to try it right now. It doesn't take as long to heat up (I'm guessing because the juices have dried out JUST a lil bit, but not any noticeable difference) but there is still that strong flavor in it

I'm not too crazy about it.

I think it's time I give it another chance.

Maybe your satchet just went to shit. Let's hope not.

I have the same problem as you, jilly. I fell that grenadin is just over-the-top. It tastes way too much and after 30 mins in the session it fells like you have the mollases and glycerin in your mouth. Its like drinking the juices of the tub. thats how i fell it.

This happens to me with Af Mint and Cinnamon. The flavor just get's to over-powering to the point in which your BODy won't even let you inhale it anymore.

This honestly can't be good at all...

Its not that bad as yours Zen. It just feels like... drinking lemon squash straight but with smoke. It just gives you a "full" feeling in your mouth.

To be honest, I am not a big fan of grenandine, and was glad when I got through with what I bought. I know everyone raves about it, but maybe if I mixed it with something else I might enjoy it more....any suggestions?

Peace Out...

Well normal grenadine by itself is really strong tasting, it's like Vanilla Extract by itself, that strong by comparison. That's why it's used for mixing drinks, so maybe it should be used to mix shishas.

I found it was alittle too sweet, but alright. It did change taste the longer we smoked it - into something that reminded me of cranberries. And it left a "thick coating" in the mouth - had to drink something while smoking it.

I first smoked it out of my QT, it kept trying to go harsh. Out of my 27" S is was better, but still had the strange changing taste and mouth-coat. Very odd... it was like it was more glycine than anything else. My Cinnamon does the same thing, but it's a overbearing flavor on it's own (I tend to mix cinn with stuff).

Okay, I aired out the tub for about 2 days. This flavor looks less juicy, which is a GOOD thing so the flavor won't be as strong and it doesn't smell as strong as before I aired out the AF Grenadine.

I'm going to smoke it later on tonight and see if there is a definite difference and if I can take long pulls like I SHOULD from this flavor!

Okay, it didn't do TOO MUCH of a difference. The pull is still a prob but it feels a lil better and not only that, the flavor is a lot better...Like its brought out more in a very good way
