Default El Basha, any thoughts?

So the local shop carries some El Basha flavors and I've started to try a few. It's a little more moist than your typical Nakhla which is good. I've tried their grape and rose flavors so far and is pleasantly surprised by both. Just wanted to hear from some people that have tried El Basha and see what your opinion is on the brand/series.

Yeah I've seen the reviews but they're all over grape, I was wanting to see if anyone has tried any other flavors and have an opinion. I just like that it has more moisture since I've gotten some Nakhla recently that was bone dry (specifically cinnamon). And I've found the flavor of El Basha to be a little different.

I know the cinnamon is amazing I got Tangiers Horchata in the same order and I'll go to the Nakhla before I go to the tangiers. I'm not bashing the cinnamon in the least. Just wished it was a little more "rip" looking.
I was at a lose when I saw the El Basha at the shop because I was like, "what the hell is that", little did I know it was Nakhla. Love the search button. I hated Nakhla for a while and just started smoking it again and other than a few select flavors it's beat out my old fav AF.
This sites been a god send. I smoked for almost 2 years before stumbling upon Hookah Pro and so glad I did.

El Basha is the washed line from Nakhla and a bit more juicy. The Caramel is good use it mixed with DA to give a toffee apple flavor. Dunkel says they make the best Apricot.

Definitely gonna have to hit that place up if they sell Nakhla. The only other places I've bought tobacco are 18+ on Broadway and Aladdin Cafe in Lawrence.

I enjoyed it okay, it's great stuff and I would have absolutely loved it if I was into jasmine flavor. If you like jasmine then definitely get the El Basha.
