Default al-Fakher & Nakhla

Now, I usually only smoke al-Fakher, very rarely do I smoke Nakhla or anything else.

However, I once had some shisha from a lounge that was supposed to be al-Fakher double apple, but it was ten times sweeter and better tasting than anything I have ever had at home.

I have been chasing after this flavour for a very long time but can't seem to figure out how they made it the way they did. Do you think that adding Nakhla double apple with al-Fakher double apple will create this very sweet taste?

And also, how would you compare the tastes of Golden Eskandarani Apple/Ba7raini Apple with regular al-Fakher Double Apple?

Sorry those are a lot of questions!

I do like AF double apple, i like to a mix it with mint or honey or sometimes both, tastes amazing... but in my view, the AF golden Eskandarani is the nicest apple.. its a green apple with a sweet sour taste. The cut and smoke is one of the best.

I use to smoke nakhla double apple religiously.. but once i got hold of AF a few years back, i dont touch nakhla anymore.

AF double Apple is one of the worst flavours made by the company; whereas, Nakhla DA is one of the best flavours I ever smoked, full stop!

Ive smoked AF DA in kiloes.. I one had 20 x 250 grams of this flavour oly and smoked it every day for a year..
Ive smoked alot of DA including nakhlas all variants from the regular to the jar and can version..
Nothing beats AF DA in sweetness...
But it's hard to smoke .. What you need to do is to put on alot of heat.. and have patience cus it will tickle the throat for alittle while in the beginning.. jsut let it be with a windcover and let it heat up more and more.. then it will tickle thorat a bit mroe.. and then if youve done everything right then VOILA! from the first hit you understand that something is starting to taste good.. thats when your AF session starts...

Nakhla DA is the undisputed king of moassels. To say otherwise shows your lack of good taste and borders on blasphemy!

Nakhla is like breathing the purest calming air in the forest while eating fresh fruit and drinking a fine Belgian ale when suddenly a unicorn appears, pays all your debt and turns into a beautiful maiden.

Al Fakher is like licking the sweat from an morbidly obese ticket salesman at an adult theatre while he gives you pet names and farts the national anthem. This is after you find out that you are actually his illegitimate child.

i agree al fakher apple on its own isnt great, but it can taste v good mixed with other AF flavours and you get a longer smoke than nakhla, do u not think?

^longevity depends greatly on bowl type, packing method, heat management, etc. IMO longevity is not the best way to gauge a tobacco.

That is possible, I do this alot to add a bit of sweetness, there are actually just "sweet" flavoured tobaccos as well.

I personally like Nakhla DA WAY better than AF DA. Especially Nakhla DA w/ some mizo mint at the bottom. Sooo sweet ,delicious , thick & tastes authentic.

I prefer Nakhla over AF over mosts flavors though.

The Almighty Nakhla has already rewarded me in more ways than one.
It gave me confidence, hope... & even a son.

Well this might be true.. but think about it.. Nakhla is very cheap and kind of standard in the arabic countries and such.. And these countries are the ones smoking alot of shisha.. But its not like they are chosing nakhla DA over AF because of this.. Nakhla is simply cheap and availible and 'oldschool'..
look in the US for example.. you've got soo many alternatives.. do you think nakhla Da is the most common flavour there too? I doubt it.. and even if it was it would probably be beause nakhla is cheap, well worth its price, common and also its consistent but in my opinion that is most brands ( except a few batches of AF )..
So dont overhype the hyped nakhla DA.. its 'good' but comeon its not the best.. make it a bit more expensive and u see it drop suddenly to "normal" popularity

Yeh, i see what your saying. Last July i went to Marrakech for a holiday.. i was excited to find new and wonderful cheap shisha tobaccos... the only brand i could find EVERYWHERE was Nakhla and every single place did the same 5 flavours... it pissed me off.
