Nakhla tastes better to me and cheaper too. I love the new line of Mizo tastes so authentic.

I like Al Fakher more than Nakhla.
Because:
Nakhla's quite dry, many flavours are really bad (e.g. banana or vanilla). It is really cheap, but Al Fakher is not that expensive either.
But the thing is, that Al Fakher is heat-sensitive. So maybe you should use 2 layers of foil to get more space between the coals and the tobacco.

Tobacco isn't meant to be too juicy...nakhla has a good consistency.

Last night i did a review of 2 AF flavors, and honestly, they failed.
Not all of nakhla tastes good, but as a whole it tastes better than AF.

It has a better mint, a better apple, a better fruit, a better melon......
And hey, Nakhla banana is good.

The consistency of Nakhla is everything else than good. There are many stams and the cut is really bad, many big leaves and so on. AF is better there.
Why shouldn't tobacco be very juicy?
The mint of Nakhla is menthol only, the AF tastes sweet. But I like strong mint more
The Nakhla fruit mix is a complete fail, it tastes just chemically like a strawberry thingie or somthing like that. I didn't try AF fruit mix yet, maybe it's even worse.
And banana tastes like a very old banana.
The flavours I had of AF were all better than Nakhla - execially vanilla (Nakhla tastes like nothing, even if the smell was great) and lemon (toilet cleaner xD).
Could you tell me, which Nakhla flavour is the best? Maybe I'll give it another try.
//I've just seen it: AF Cappu and Cinnamon. The guys in the UAE make good fruit flavours, the other ones often taste very mild (except for chocolate).

choco mint is heaven. i agree the normal mint is not very minty but i still like it.

all of the nakhla apples are much better than af, sweet mellon is awesome, cola is great, cinnamon and cardamon, mandrin.

a lot of nakhla is very good, you just seem to have gotten all the flavors that are known for not being widely liked. egyptian tobacco usually has a more natural lighter taste, that why most people that like it do.

and as to why does tobacco need to be dry. if the liquid drips down you stem then it didnt need to be there because it didnt get used up and took up weight that could have been more properly made tobacco

The Nakhla fruit mix is a complete fail, it tastes just chemically like a strawberry thingie or somthing like that. I didn't try AF fruit mix yet, maybe it's even worse. He was referring to Nakhla Fakhfakhina Fruit which is indeed the best fruit flavor made.
And banana tastes like a very old banana. I don't care for most any Banana flavor.
The flavours I had of AF were all better than Nakhla - execially vanilla (Nakhla tastes like nothing, even if the smell was great) and lemon (toilet cleaner xD). AF Vanilla is not a true vanilla flavor either. Very artificial like cake icing.
Could you tell me, which Nakhla flavour is the best? Maybe I'll give it another try. Nakhla Sweet Melon, Mandarin, and Double Apple. Fakhfakhina Mixed Fruits and Pistachio. Sheherazade Choco Mint, Cinnamon, Earl Grey and Cardamom. Mizo Mint, White Grape and Peach.
//I've just seen it: AF Cappu and Cinnamon. The guys in the UAE make good fruit flavours, the other ones often taste very mild (except for chocolate).Nakhla Cinnamon is better than the AF version.[/quote]

I answered your questions and entered my opinions were needed.

dunkle i have to argue with you on the mixed fruits, i think it is pretty bad. i have a container i had 2 small bowls out of and havent touched since and mizo mint, maybe i got a batch that went bad some how but it was not that great to me, an ok smoke sure but not great.

other than that i agree with you pretty much on the nakhla arguments

o and to kugelfang if you like earl grey nakhla earl grey is exactly on

The cut size of nakhla is honestly perfect. It allows you to have a loosely packed bowl with good airflow without worrying about tobacco sinking into the stem on a standard bowl. The quality of the leaf is better, it is more intact than most heavily washed brands like AF, SB etc.

As for stems, yeah, it has them, but so does AF...The cool part about nakhla stems is that they arent cut up into small bits, easy to take them out.

You don't want too much juice because tobacco isnt meant to be mushy it isnt meant to drip, its supposed to be much drier than all these new "premium" brands. Juice does not mean quality, that is a very big issue many fail to realize. Naklha manages to get a lot of flavor without compromising the leaf quality.

Try some Nakhla Mizo Mint. If you like AF Mint still, consider yourself an outlier. It tastes like real mint, not like mint gum.

Nakhla Fakhfakhina Fruit is the BEST Fruit Mix flavor out there. Sorry, but it is so.

Banana tastes like a yellow banana. Not the green ones they sell so it doesnt rot on you the next day. the yellow ones, the ripe ones...the ones that taste good.

AF vanilla tastes like grocery store cupcakes.

Lemon tastes bad from every brand....well lemonade from HH tastes good...but the cut is horrible.

My hookah may say Al-fakher on it right now, but not for long sir, im gonna replace it with some syrian glass and make sure the name of nour isnt tainted.

As for good nakhla flavors...all i mentioned...and anything in my video reviews on nakhla...havn't done a vid on a bad nakhla yet.

I haven't had many Al Fahker flavors but nakhla is reliable and is the way to go yo.

Nahkla Mint was amazing a REAL mint flavor not a gum flavor and I like that.
Nahkla El Basha grape was amazing still, best grape flavor I've had.
Nahkla Banana, Tastes like a real banana and is refreashing and smooth.
NAhkla Lemon, a good lemon, a little pinesol-y but it was more of a real lemon flavor and again a plus.

What i like about Nakhla is nothing tastes artificial it all tastes natural and thats how it should be, the cut is good and no dripping down my stem another plus. It's a little chunky so what?

So yes Nakhla for me.
I've only had one BAD flavor and that was Fahkafahkina Miced fruits and that was bad for me, but everyones taste buds are different.

Don't think Nakhla is bad if it doesn't taste like candy, the flavors are real and they are strong!

First tobacco I had was Nakhla and I thought it was decent, I had cola, banana and coffee. cola was good, banana was great IMO, and coffee was meh. I then tried double apple and loved it for a couple of weeks than one day I overdosed on it chain smoking while drunk and was super sick for a few hours. The smell of it to this day is sickening to me so I bought some AF and really enjoyed it for a while, I had AF grape, watermelon, peach, lemon mint and pipe.

Okay so recently i decided to give nakhla another try since i was starting to remember the banana i had and how good it was, i remembered a nice tobacco taste is all i can describe it in the background unlike the AF flavors i was smoking, so I grabbed some sweet melon nakhla. As of now this is my favorite tobacco, it dominates the AF ive had so far. It tasted so ridiculously good and truly made me realize how AF seems so artificial in taste and lacking in the natural tobacco flavor i was talking about. Will be trying all of the Nakhla flavors dunkel mentioned and hope that mizo watermelon will be available in north america soon.
