Default Al Fakher Eskandarani Apple

I recently bought a Khalil mamoon Blue caravan (from hookahcompany.com http://www.hookahcompany.com/blue_ca..._2235_prd1.htm) along with it i bought AF Eskandaran, the pipe is absolute amazing, i mean any other flavour inside this thing and smokes like a beast, but with my Eskandaran well, the smokes a bit pathetic to be honest. I always pack my head with enough space between the head and lip (though not too much) i use red hot coal(natural), and my water set up and practically everything else except the flavour is the same as it is when i smoke anything else. Im longing for the taste, the last time i had one was in Dubai during summer, and well needless to say the smoke was horrendously thick. Any ideas guys??

cheers

Salam

Is it dry at all? Is it old?

af esk apple is lighter in taste than many other apples. try slightly overpacking, use a windover to help w/ heat and 1-1/2 coals. i smoke this often and normally get 2-3 hours, tons of smoke and flavor to the end. good luck

Haha trust me i kno what u mean! Too much stuff to do these days, i did try the windcover, didint help so it must be the flavour being out of date or something. Anyone know anyway to get back the drippiness maybe add some glycerin?? And one more thing, i reali do love the flavour, could anyone suggest another brands eskandaran apple? Cheers for the help.

Regards

glycerine or some honey may help return some moisture.

layalian's and al ajamy esk are good, stronger apple, but less sweet and shorter smoke duration. lay bri apple is also good.

Have you tried stirring/mixing up the shisha? I've noticed that a lot of times people don't realize that you need to stir up the shisha before you smoke it. The juices will inevitably drip down to the bottom of the tub eventually drying out the shisha at the top of the tub. If you don't stir it up before smoking, it won't taste as good and smoke thickness could problaby be affected as well...

Don't add too much glycerin though, it will taste really soapy.

I recommend Agave Nectar in place of honey and glycerin.
