Default Re: Havana

Brand and Flavor: Havana Wildberries & Red Grape

Shisha Cut: Medium cut - very wet - some small stems

Hookah Type: Personal 1 hose portable

Duration: 45 minutes, give or take

Bowl: Basic clay

Foil / Screen: Havana round foil

Coal / Amount: 1 Deezer puck split in half

Smoke: Thick and fragrant

Buzz: Slight to mild

Smell / Flavor: Smells very strongly of raspberries. Just opening the bag will make the smell permeate throughout the immediate area. Flavor is very rich and sweet, but not overly so. It's just a hair below the line of becoming too sweet. The flavor is akin to berry flavored Kool-Aid. The red grape gives a nice tangy edge to the mellow berry flavor. Very satisfying.

Rating (1 to 10): 9/10 - I was hoping for a more fresh berry taste, but found myself loving this anyway. Great dessert smoke. It beats the Starbuzz Wildberry on all points. This will definitely become a standard in my stash.

Brand and Flavor: Havana Lemon & Menthol

Shisha Cut: Small and choppy, with a forest-green color that caught me by surprise.

Hookah Type: 29" Jordanian, water base.

Duration: One hour

Bowl: Standard Egyptian

Foil / Screen: Heavy duty generic store brand foil

Coal / Amount: 3 Inhale brand Japanese style (but made in China)

Smoke: Starting off, very light and whispy; similar to Desi Murli. Towards the middle, they were fairly dense. Took a while to get to that point and didn't last for a while.

Buzz: Light, compared to Nakhla at least. More noticeable than AF or Starbuzz, though.

Smell / Flavor: Very little lemon taste. I wouldn't know it was there if it wasn't in the name, but TONS of minty menthol taste.

Rating (1 to 10): I've got 3 numbers here. For the lemon aspect of it, a 1. For the menthol, a solid 10. For the entirety of it though, I'd place this at a 7. I have a feeling that this would be excellent to mix with something else though. I had gotten this as Hookahset was out of Nakhla Mint, but I would order this again without a doubt.

Brand and Flavor: Havana Watermelon (on clearance from Hookah-Shisha)

Shisha Cut: I would say small, but I'm no expert

Hookah Type: MYA Petite (all stock)

Duration: 30 minutes so far

Bowl: stock bowl

Foil / Screen: foil

Coal / Amount: 3 Coconara halves

Smoke: Thick clouds

Buzz: Moderate

Smell / Flavor: Strong smell, not too powerful. Good taste

Rating (1 to 10): 8/10

First post. I'm no expert, but I've smoked about 6-7 different flavors.

Getting nice clouds with the Havana Watermelon. Moderate buzz if I constantly puff it. The taste is more like candy watermelon than the fruit. No aftertaste (at least not a bad one). Not the best flavor I've smoked, but for the price it's not bad at all. I probably wouldn't get a second box though.

Brand and Flavor: Havana Pipe

Shisha Cut: Medium, no stems, dark brown dye

Hookah Type: MZ Gemini

Duration: 1.2 hours

Bowl: Medium Phunnel

Foil / Screen: HD

Coal / Amount: 3 coconaras

Smoke: Thick, dense,

Buzz: none

Smell / Flavor: It smells like dark chocolate or cocoa. Mild tobacco tastes like a hand-rolled cigar with a noticeable mouth feel. The aftertaste was a pleasant taste that reminded me of very mild snuff.

Rating (1 to 10): 9/10 , This is my first pipe flavored shisha. For the ridiculously low price and great tobacco flavor, Havana sets a pretty high bar. If you like tobacco flavored tobacco, then look no further. I'll try it against AF pipe and see how it stacks up. BTW, this was clearance from Hookahset, for about $3 for almost half a kilo. Thanks Hajo for turning me on to this flavor.

Brand and Flavor: Havana Power Energy

Shisha Cut: Medium cut, pretty wet, some large stems with tobacco still attached to them

Hookah Type: 32" KM trimetal

Duration: an hour

Bowl: Tangiers small phunnel

Foil / Screen: reynolds HD

Coal / Amount: 3 coconut naturals

Smoke: medium density

Buzz: none

Smell / Flavor: smelled like a pungent sour fruit of some sort, not like an energy drink really. it tasted sort of like it smelled, but with more of an energy drink vibe. if you have ever tried Syzmo energy drinks it tasted very much like that.

Rating (1 to 10): 7/10 not a bad flavor, it took heat very well, i would have liked bigger clouds but im sure another coal would have helped and not hurt the flavor at all. i never tried another energy drink shisha so i don't know how it compares to other brands, but if you like agave flavor energy drinks this tastes just like it. i personally wouldn't buy this again when there are so many other "AWESOME" flavors out there, but then again i don't really like energy drinks that much.
