Default Nakhla vs starbuzz

I was a die hard sb smoker, even though there were some flavors i really didnt like (blue mist, tangerine dream, x on the beach, ets) but ever since i smoke nakhla sweet melon and banana i feel like, awakened, i will never go back to sb.....ever....i smoked nakhla mint too, but that one didnt persuade me at all.

lol anyway, what do you all, think? am i right about nakhla being far superior?

i think that if u smoke star buzz its more of a kind of shisha u smoke with ur friends and nakhla is for those smokers who are true to the hookah

Nakhla is a gift from God, I can't wait I've got a kilo of DA coming along with some mint and mixed fruit. Enjoy the gift of Nakhla

It does my heart good to hear such truth being told. It gives me hope for the future of hookah smoking. No need for a fancy can, catch phrases, or special techniques. Just straight up honest, quality shisha tobacco. All hail the almighty Nakhla!

I've been smoking Nakhla exclusively for the past month or so (Thank God), but I do keep a couple tins of SB around. Just tonight, I cracked open some exotic orange. While there really is no comparison, I like to have a little candy every now and then

I agree I do keep Starbuzz around for friends who haven't smoked hookah before. But when they are ready I shift them to Nakhla and it's all over. I'm their shisha pusher.

you gota have some variation in life but yes i stick to nakhla the vast majority of the time , with the occasional tangiers or maybe some starbuzz.

SB has a very very smooth flavor and has much more exotic flavors (i.e. candy). some of the flavors are nice but others just are wayyyyy to far to that end of the spectrum.

The two shisha's are very different.. There are some Nakhla flavors i love more than any Starbuzz, but on the other hand Nakhla has some of the worst flavors as well :P Starbuzz is just always smooth.. Havent found a SB flavor i didnt like ^^

Conclusion; Both are very good, couldnt pick one over the other.

I don't care who is smoking with me, if I want Nakhla, I pack Nakhla. Most of the time I am kind enough to let my friends choose and they choose Nakhla over everything else based on the smell. The thing that bugs me about Starbuzz is that every time I smoke it, my throat hurts the next day. However, I can smoke as much Nakhla as I want and have no issues.

your not getting the same tobacco we are due to the german moisture laws so that is probably the biggest issue. if you can some how get nakhla from any other market in then it will be better but idk if the law allows you to personally get it across the country lines for personal use or if that is still a no no

that can be it too. by moisture does the law mean 60% by weight can be liquid or that it cannot be more than 60% relative humidity

you cant compare nakhla and starbuzz they are two different worlds starbuzz is the grandchild of nakhla . you should be comparing starbuzz with shisha like JMs al fakher fusion and so on
. but i think nakhlas one of the best shisha on the market

I didnt like any starbuzz flavour. Only white peach was "fine" but too shalow. it smelled good but had no real taste in the mouth.
On the other hand the only nakhla flavour i dont like is probably the standard mixed fruit. If you think that there is a single "bad flavour" from Nakhla other than mixed fruit just post it here.

I don't mean to high-jack the OPs thread, but what makes in your opinion Nakhla better? Of the two I've only had SB. I'm always down to try something out, and if Nakhla is recommended it'll be my next buy.

So why do you choose Nakhla over SB?

People usually choose Nakhla over Starbuzz because there more into traditional natural flavored tobacco's that don't taste like candy (starbuzz). The price also makes a difference as well.

I used to be real heavy into the candy stuff (starbuzz) and on occasion I backslide a bit. With Nakhla the flavors are more...... well just more. It is very hard to describe.

If you choose to try Nakhla I would suggest a 50g of peach or sweet melon to start. This is what was suggested to me and I am glad to have taken this advice. I do smoke other tobaccos now but mainly for reference and reviews.

Speaking of which, did anyone here ask Castle to send me sample of Jewels? If so thank you. It will make for a great review. My wife will be writing it.
