Default New flavor enhancing tip!!!

My apologies if this is not new, but I have never heard of this being done before. OK so last week some time I hadn't smoked hookah for about a 2 weeks and I was really looking forward to smoking again. While thinking of which flavor we would go for this time, a great idea hit me.

I really didn't think it would work, but it did alright. After packing the head drip about 3-5 drips of vanilla essence on the shisha. The taste is amazing!!! We used it with Al Sultan Guave and then with Al Sultan Licorice. It was amazing with both. I also did some reseach and it seems burning vinilla escence doesn't realease any harmful toxins, so it won't make you sick or something...

For even more flavor put some in the water too.

Hope you enjoy it, happy hookahing!

i can tell you that you will definately taste austin nichols greathness if you substitute all the water for wild turkey, but it sort of kills your lungs.

I avoid putting alcohol in the base water because it makes it too tempting to drink it later.

no one will judge you for throwing in wild turkey 80 in there and then drinking it when you are done, as long as you make a turkey call.

see WT80 is not for drinking nomally, thats what WT101, rarebreed and american spirit are for!

hmm, i may try the vanilla with a coffee flavor. I've mixed a couple vanilla shishas with HF X-presso and never gotten a good result, but I'll try the extract, it could definitely work...

if not I'll just drink the whiskey

if you see root beer in the extract isle, you may want to dilute what you add in it btw...

I heard a few drops of lemon juice is supposed to enhance the flavor and boost how much smoke you get also. I've tried it twice and noticed more smoke and smoother smoke, but I can't say it was necessarily the lemon juice cause I also used my homemade diffuser both those times too so it could of been either.
