Havana is not high end. However, it is not a bad shisha. My local store also sells it and i have only found 1 flavor i didnt like, jasmine, it tastes like diapers. But other than that, its cheap, smokes decent, and its fun to experiment mixing flavors with.

I would say Havana used to be high end but not anymore... Their strawberry used to be out of this world about 4-5 years ago and their double apple was quite good...If I had too much havana I remember feeling a little sickly as I remember it being very very sweet (the kind of sick feeling you get when you eat too many sweets...that doesn't mean they are bad...its just that one has had too much lol) ... I havent seen it in the UK recently though...It used to come in 250g boxes the same size as Nakhla boxes... What would you say about their strawberry these days ROG...maybe it's time I sought it out again.

Havana is a great brand if you want natural tasting fruity or coffee flavoured products. It's washed but not as heavily as most brands so a little tobacco flavour makes it into the aftertaste and the smoke texture seems to be pretty good and not so glycerin tainted. The pipe flavour is simply amazing although it doesn't taste like pipe tobacco it is one of the best products on the American market. In short, it's worth every penny.

I really want to try Havana Eskandarani Apple (or however the heck you spell it)... I have heard good things. Whats important to remember is that price doesnt necesarily dictate quality in the hookah world. Nakhla is dirt cheap compared to most tobacco, and it is one of the best brands on the market.

Havana is pretty popular here in NYC. The three most common brands are Havana, AF and Romman, then a few of the stores carry StarBuzz.

I like Havana. It's a mellow smoke, and the flavors come through strong after it gets going. However, the flavor and smoke isn't as harsh as AF can get so it's great for when my fiancee smokes with me, since she can't handle the harsh smoke that well.

It isn't as moist as AF, which I think is the reason it isn't as "potent", but it's a perfectly acceptable tobacco. My favorite so far is banana & honey.

I've been a fan of Havana for as long as I can remember. It's a standard gulf style moassel. Al Rawan, pipe, and Pina Colada are some flavors that I've enjoyed. And they produce one of the best lemon/limes I've ever had!

What is most important is if the tobacco treats you well. The truth is that there are a lot of "premium" or "high end" shisha tobaccos that are far from deserving of that title. The true high end stuff is far from the grasp of most on this forum. It the same with anything. There are terrible products claiming to be the best and humble products that blow the other out of the water.

In short no and yes at the same time. It's fairly high quality but not marketed as a product for the elitist drew as many others are.

I still need to get my hands on some. Next time I place an order I will tack some on.

It would seem that Havana has joined the "throw it in a metal tin and charge more" band wagon. Introducing: The New Havana Premium

ive tried the havana blue mist and its nowhere near starbuzz. Its just really really sweet. The smell was llike blueberry but in a chemical way, the juice stains your fingers for a long time. Overall i wasnt happy

Hate to break it to you but thats actually cheaper than it use to be... lol, I worry when i see tins because that means they have to make that money lost up somewhere else... and the only thing left to save money on would be the tabacco... but who knows, maybe they just want to look more high end...
