Default Whats up with Layalina recently...

It seems as if people aren't too satisfied with Layalina recently. Alot of the CURRENT talk of layalina is how the flavor is so weak

Blueberry is fine, so was my coconut, strawberry & lemon. the bri apple smells fine as well. I took a gamble on Rapsberry - I've heard some great reviews and some bad. My old batch of peach started off great, but even though it tasted fine, toward the end it smelled strange (to me atleast).

I don't think any manufactor of shisha can make every batch perfect... very close, yes - but 100% perfect each & every time.... pretty unlikly. Law of averages.

But also take into consideration: set-up, bowl use (phunnel), humidity, water temp, coals..... so many little different things that can alter even the best shisha you love to worthless nasty crud.

I haven't tried a lot of it recently, BUT I did try a 50gm sample of the Watermelon and I was really excited to try it! But it was a let down, and was not as amazing as everyone made it out to be BUT, it could have been because it was a sample?

That is one thing I have noticed with Layalina - their samples tend to do worse than their 250g tubs. It shouldn't matter, but for some flavors it does.

I've had some 50g's do great - others suck. Most of the time the 250g tubs are great.

I think alot comes down to personal taste. What I like, you may hate type of thing.

Yeah, i tried the Layalina Watermelon Sample as well, but it came from a 250 gr. pack. I think it's just my preference, but i didn't like it. it gave me a weird feeling in my stomach, as if i was hungry and sick at the same time. Now i can't go near it.

layalina watermelon is prolly the best i have had. i filled a small egyptian bowl last night with the watermelon and the flavor lasted the whole hour, not subtle either, distinct flavor. but i have only tried the watermelon and the melon, both were very good and not weak on flavor. i am going to be ordering their vanilla and blueberry sometime soon

Well, maybe there is a difference between the boxed sample and the 250 tub, I am hoping that is what it is anyhow! Cuz I am really excited about finding a good watermelon.

Yesterday, one of my friends gave me about 190 grams of what was left of his Layalina Blackberry. Now i was sure, since he gave it away (i have had great experiences with Layalina Blackberry), that there was something wrong. So i aksed him, and he told me he wanted me to try it because the flavor was very bland. The container had been cracked in shipping. So i said fine, i'll try it out. I invited this kid over who i havn't seen in a while. I loaded up a head on my Mya Acrylic of the Blackberry.

Now let me just say right here i'm pretty much the king of mya Acrylic smoking, i'm not trying to brag, but i kick ass.

But anyways, i set it up in a small phunnel with a Mod, and i tried a new coal and oil hole setup. I wanted more juice to drip to the bottom of the bowl from the shisha, and also didnt want the shisha to burn AT ALL. so i poked very large holes (about the size of those sewing pins with the balls on the end) at the edge of the Mod in the middle. I poked them as close together as possible. I didn't poke anymore holes around the rest of the bowl's foil, just the middle. I sat the coals (2 2.5 inch exoticas) on the non-holes foil directly across from each other. The shisha was heatd, and drippied a ton of juice into the bowl, all that was left on the Layalina, but it did not burn. I wasn't getting any smoke, but i knoew th juice was at the bottom because i looked under the shisha wen i switched the foils.

Now i poked holes near the rim of the bowl, same sized, 2 rows, and placed the coals in the middle away from the holes. It smoked like a king. I was getting Top Notch Starbuzz smoke from Layalina that supposedly had been drained of all it's juices. The juices sat at the bottom, getting heated by the coal, while air rsuhed through the tobacco and then the juices without being hated until it got to the mod. Amazing smoke.

Now, the flavor. I have had blackberry before. I have had the porblem of inconsistancy, of course. But now i know that with a little effort it can smoke better than before. Even with inconsistant batches, it's possible to make them work.

my tub for the watermelon broke from being lightly kicked while inside a backpack. when i got it a bunch of the juice had leaked out of the sealed gold bag and was all over the inside of the box. it still smokes ok but the packaging definitely sucks

That's the main reason why once i open a new pack, i instantly transfer it to a ziploc bag. Works like a charm
