Default Zaghloul and Zagh Mixes

Gonna progressively update this thread as I experiment with Zagh, which I just tried again (finally) and which is Fn great.

Scores will be given, and reviews will be posted in the thread and updated in the second post below.

x/10 - taste
x/10 - quality of smoke
x/10 - ease of prep, heat management, and lastability
x/10 - buzz
x/10 - overall

-------------------------------------------------------

Zaghloul (straight)

taste: 9/10 - Tastes like quality. Natural tobacco flavor, reminded my of the smell of a Nat Sherman before it is lit. Complex and overall great. Begs for dark coffee

smoke: 6/10 - The smoke is a little thin but definitely there.

ease, heat management, lastability : 8/10 - Prep was... put it in the phunnel. Heat management was a snap. Likes it really hot and you only need to rotate the coals every 15min or so. Best with some space between the foil and the tobacco, a single heavy-duty foil with lots of small holes. Doesn't smoke very long, however, maybe a 45min bowl. I know some people say to smoke it without foil, but... not for me.

buzz: 10/10 - It is strong.

overall: 8/10 - I really like it and can see it being a daily thing.

Zaghloul x AF Rose, 3:2 (dubbed Zagh Necro by Jonesies)

taste: 9/10 - Simply amazing. Blends perfectly and was one of the nicest smokes I've had in weeks. Asks for a white tea of some sort, or maybe a lighter green.

smoke: 8.5/10 - A little thicker than straight Zagh.

ease, heat management, lastability:8/10 - No noticeable difference from unmixed. Very easy to manage. Prep was mixing the two to a proper consistency.

buzz: 8/10 - Nothing unexpected.

overall: 9/10 - Like I said very satisfying smoke in all regards. Definitely will be here again. Next time I will likely up the ratio of Zagh:AF, maybe to 2:1

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zaghloul x AF Grapefruit, 2:1

taste
: 2/10 - TBQH it was kinda gross

smoke: 7/10 - It was there.

ease, heat management, lastability: ?/10 - Hard to say, really. heat management was easy, prep was easy.. lastability... I didn't finish the bowl so can't say for sure.

buzz: 7/10

overall: 1/10 - Didn't mesh well at all. Very unpleasant flavors, and I will never try this again.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zaghloul x Nak DA, 1:1 (Scab)

taste
: 9/10 - Blends perfectly, a lighter version of straight DA with a bit of added depth

smoke: 9/10 - Nice, satisfying clouds

ease, heat management, lastability : 10/10 - the DA really juiced it up and it smoked for quite a long time. Heat management was completely painless.

buzz: 8/10 - I thought it would hit a little harder. Maybe though I just smoked a lot in the past 24hrs so have a bit of a tolerance.

overall: 9/10 - Great. Not as euphoric as the Rose mix, but nonetheless something I could see myself doing quite frequently. Recommended.

I pack it just like I do regular Nakhla. Load the bowl about 1/4 " above the rim and press it down flat with the foil. Smokes great and when I'm done and pull off the foil, it has a big black hockey puck stuck to it.

This 'don't let it touch the foil' bit is overrated.

perhaps

I tried it both ways and just got a cleaner buzz and feeling with a little space. But I'm the relative newb in this exchange so who knows. I do generally always use a phunnel though, and the one I have gets really hot all over (unlike the Egyptian which doesn't really at all) and so it cooks it good and proper from all angles.

Maybe I'll give the over-pack a try in the clay next time. Will advise.

Deadbeatjeff, one of my favorite zag mixes is 50 zag, 25 nak DA, and 25 nak cinnamon. Slight variation on the scab mix a lot of people here enjoy.

actually, my next import list has Nak Cinnamon and Earl Grey on it already, so will check it out. Of course a already have Nak DA. Not for a while though, just got 1.5 kilos last week.

I'm with Uglybiker on this one. I always over pack Nakhla because it can handle the heat. I never notice a difference if it's touching the foil or not.

Tried it in the Egyptian this morning, to the top.

Smokes pretty much the same as in the phunnel with space. I think it's a matter of how much heat the bowl is retaining.

Having:

-not been allowed to post a legitimate vender review
-had my sig edited with no notice even though the rules allow for pics and links to personal websites (and not having my PM to the mods about it even responded to)
-had my music thread locked for no good reason

I'm out of here.
