Default Nakhla Vanilla?

I'm bored as usual, I've never tried Nakhla Vanilla and it's on my to smoke list.
I just opened a box and as I've hear from HP members, AR for one, that it's smells more like frosting than vanilla. It does, a bit, just a bit, but the rest smells like tobacco, actually pipe tobacco. It's got a pleasant aroma to it, however i have just been breaking it apart and stirring it up and it's been breathing a bit and it just smells warmer. I am about to go smoke it in a bit, using my "preparing nakhla tangiers style". I will be back to hopefully boast about how great this will be.

well i;ve been smoking it for 10 minutes so far and there is only a hint of vanilla and a nice mild tobacco flavor. it could be bc i have been smoking fruit flavors for so long. i am really enjoying this. it's kind of like a backwoods mini cigar.

I've burned through afew boxes of the vanilla but dont recall it tasting like frosting. I think the best description I've made that I can recall was more like a sweet play-doh. It's not a bad smoke but the vanilla is very mild if I recall.

ok, now i remember you did say it was like play doh, but even though it's mild, it's tobacco mild, not lacking flavor. i still havent tried zaghloul yet to compare.

OH! It's nothing like zaghloul brother. Zaghloul is an entirely different creature.

start w/ some plain Salloum John. It's a slightly smoother smoke but very much in the same vein.

Yeah Nakhla Vanilla is not a favorite of mine. It's not bad, but like John said it's a little to light on the vanilla flavor.

ya the vanilla is lacking in my opinion, it might be nice to mix with earl grey to make an earl grey creme flavor or something like that but idk. i smoked it once was was disappointed. it probably would be a good flavor to lighten and sweeten another flavor too

It's hard to rate as it's really lacking flavor, for a vanilla I would give it next to nothing, but for a smoke, just a mild natural tobacco flavor I will give it a 9.
The good thing about Nakhl is that it doesn't have so much flavoring, which is artificial. This just seemed like a natural smoke, and definitely wasn't too strong as I expect Zaghoul to be.

Somebody on this website says that a Nahklah flavor is just ok and some people agreed? Who bumped their head?

2 different animals. Like a stated above, Nakhla vanilla will get almost nothing for fa vanilla flavor, but it's like smoking a cigar almost, nice smooth tobacco.

Thinking about vanilla gave me a good idea. I think some company should make birthday cake flavor. I'm suprised that starbuzz hasn't already cornered that market. I would buy birthday cake shisha up like hotcakes.
