Default Kass Afriki

I've been smoking this stuff for about a week semi-regularly and I have to say it's really great. It has a nice peppery, spicy note with a strong fire cured tobacco profile that is a great change of pace. If it's a bit too strong for you i'd suggest cutting it with some Salloum Plain or Prince Excellent Mood or some H-H honey for those of you with a sweet tooth.

What I wonder is just how popular this stuff is in Egypt since you hear much about this brand.

Not sure what the name means, that is how they spell it on the package but yeah, the tobacco is apparently African but I have no idea where exactly it's from. Prince makes some good stuff and it seems that it turns up in the states from time to time so I suppose someone imports that brand.

Perhaps I'm thinking of the wrong thing.
I'm referring to this post by TE

Kass = Qass = Quass ..... Afriki = African ... All transliterations of same word.

So yes A-Nap, it's the same.

BIGPOPPA has some Nakhla African Qass I sent him. I dunno about Prince, I've seen it many times in El-Hussein area (Old Cairo) but it can never be as famous, popular or available as Nakhla.

Nakhla African Qass is the favorite smoke for veteran Egyptian smokers, and by veteran I mean 3+ decades of smoking! It is very strong.

I think I would probably have a heart attack after smoking it, compared 30 years is a lot of 2 years of smoking

I've been smoking cigars and Western style pipes for about 40 years which is of course not the same as narghiles which I only discovered in the late '80s. Since I don't inhale I don't think that it's the same thing in terms of nicotine absorption.

Still,Kass Afriki is a really great product although the i've only had the one made by Prince. While it's strong I don't think it's any more so then DM and it definately has that Egyptian taste that makes it different from DM.

Personally, I'll smoking Kass out of a superchief of a funnel with a scalli mod.

Prince tobacco, is that the same stuff with the guy on the box with a top hat and a hookah in his hand or something like that?

Yep, that is the brand. They make a lot of great stuff but the fruity stuff they make is not nearly as good as Salloum.

Man, that is just unfair. Nakhla keeps all the really great stuff at home. If knew Arabic i'd try to get them to change that policy
