Default First time with Nakhla

Hey everyone, so i just got back from getting a haircut at my sisters salon. While i was there she told me about a tobacco shop thas across the street called Traders smoke shop. Now by the name i wasent expecting much but when i went inside i was greeted by a somewhat upscale tobacco store. They had a few chinese modern hookahs but thats not what i was interested in, they have an amazing array of cigars and Nakhla, i walked out with

250g: Pistacio
250g: Vanilla
50g: Fak Orange
50g: Sweet Melon
and what i thought was 50g of Double Apple but turns out its mixed fruit.

Now im in no way a fan of anise but with so many people claiming Nakhla DA is king of tobacco i wanted to give it a try. Just wanted to get some opinions of what i bought and what i should buy next time.

Xavier

sweet melon may smell odd to those not accustomed to cantaloupe at first, but that smell is the smell of a ripe one sir.

pistachio, no matter what anyone says, is an acquired taste!

vanilla..is good times.

fakhfakina orange is gonna have a strong peel note

and the standard mixed fruit isnt the best, the fakhfakhina mixed fruit is better.

as for DA, if you dont like anise, dont waste your money, its a great DA, but you have to enjoy anise to enjoy da.

I am not a big fan of melon/canteloupe fruit... but i think i might like its smoke... if that makes any sense.

I finally got around to ordering some sweet melon myself, so, we'll see.

I hope you enjoy your first encounter with the Almighty Nakhla!

i figured i didnt want to try the DA but a few weekends ago i noticed how much i love jager and that has a strong licorice taste so im starting to rethink about not getting anything with anise in it and missing out on something that could potentially be a favorite of mine

the orange was a good grab, the sweet melon is good but for some it can get to ripe (i cant really smoke it any more). the fak mixed fruit is horrid, and the other one i havent tried but i have a 50 gram sitting here, the vanilla is not great, to weak/weird for me, and never tried pistacio

DA is good, margarita is great, earl grey is good if you like the tea, chocomint is great

Sweet Melon, to me, smells and tastes exactly like a honeydew melon.

Nakhla has an awesome batch of flavors, some of my personal recommendations :

Mizo Mint
Mizo Guava
Bahraini Apple (Jar)
Sweet Melon
Orange
Cinnamon (Tasty!)
Earl Grey

I've found all of these to be extremely reliable and true to their name flavors. Of course theres plenty of others, and I have a ton of nakhla, but those are some good reliable ones to start you off into your adventure with nakhla.

The sweet melon is my favorite nahkla flavor so far, followed by Mizo Mint, and orange. Wanting to try the Mizo melon next.

I kind of liked the Banana, but the flavor wasn't strong, and didn't last long. The mango I tried mostly tated like smoke, and also didn't last long.

I liked the regular Nahkla DA ok, not too much anise. Tried the Mizo Apple...way strong!

Nakhla DA has a picture of a red and yellow apple on it and is actually called "Two Apples".

orange tastes very very similar, the biggest thing i noticed is the orange doesnt have that tingly citrus in the back of the throat feeling, at least as much. its a very good flavor, i like it more than mandarin personally but both are good smokes

try mandarin or orange with a pinch of sherazade cinnamon on the bottom of the bowl... it's AMAZING
