Default Black Nakhla

I recently attempted to order a bunch of stuff from the U.S. including bata, kass & Khan El Khalili as well as some AF Cigar. They didn't have any of it and apparently they won't be carrying it.

It seems that the new anti-tobacco regulations passed by the obomanation prohibit tobacco with over 6% nicotine which happens to include dozens of breads that have been around for hundreds of years. Apparently they won't be carrying AF cigar for no particular reason. The nicotine limit thing is also annoying since nicotine absorption has more to do with how you smoke rather then what you smoke but I guess reason and facts don't matter to The One. I suppose i'll just order in bulk from Egypt and the UAE instead.

I hope this doesn't mean AF Soft Black won't be available here. I'd like to get some of this. Gotta love out Nobel Prize winning leader...

I've got to wonder if this is really true. I know Hippiemama had a recent experience where a store clerk told her that all shisha had been banned.

I did some searching and couldn't confirm that "high nicotine" tobacco had been banned.

Could it be the vendor is mistaken?

Hookah set is the worst company ever..... Annual ordered a few things from there like AF pear, Nakhla Esk Apple, Nakhla Margurita etc. said it was shipped 9/15 and didn't receive package until 1 week ago. In the package was nothing of what we ordered. and they claim to not have it instock any more.

I agree there site is pretty sketch lookin as of yet,but I have seen some improvements over the last month or so...

I ordered from them on a thursday and got my oreder the following tuesday(monday was a holiday for the post office here)

I will order from them agin,But I would also call and e-mail them to make sure the order is correct....They have had some problems with sending out the wrong flavors because of things being out of stock and what not...The really should have e-mailed there customers instead of just sending a simialar flavor...Or canciling that item...
theres a kinda weird hold/do not hold for back order option when you complete your order...I think its cunfusing things for there stock person

If you do order some nakhla or al fahker from them I can not stress enuff the importance of listing 3-7 alternate flavor options depending on the size of your order.
Its no big deal to me I love every nakhla flavor I ever tried.
I'll be placing an order with them monday or tuesday for 10-14 250g boxes of nakhla
They even gave me a 10% off coupon code with my last order..So 10% there all ready low prices plus free shipping and lots of nakhla...Its a win for me untill they do me wrong...

It's a pretty good flavour but it takes a bit of work to get right. I've never had a good session with it in an Egyptian style bowl so I use a funnel with a mod or a super chief bowl. Basically the taste is nothing like a cigar but it is pretty good. l guess i'd describe it as smokey/coffee flavour with a bit of non-specific tobacco notes in the background. If you try it out it's best to pack it lightly and leave about 4-5mm of the bowl empty. Let it heat up for a couple of minutes before drawing.

My understanding is that khan el khalili will still be available since it's at the 6% nicotine threshold.

Soft Black shouldn't be affected since it has something like 4-5% nicotine. Basically it's pretty different then anything in the black Nakhla range.

Most pipe and cigar blends have a lot less then 7% nicotine so they shouldn't be effected. Still, the new legislation is so vaguely worded that just about anything that is flavoured can be banned save menthol.

According to the guy I spoke to the FDA sent word to customs to not allow Kass and Bata into the country. I have no idea if it;s true but it sounds believable.

They suck pretty bad. I waited 1 weeks with no news on my order status and after sending a few emails they finally got back to me to say that everything I wanted was back ordered and would be in with a week. After hearing that for over a month they said everything was in and that my order was shipped as of more then a week ago. When I finally got my order and I got 250g of khan el khalili (I ordered 2 kilos) and 250g of AF pipe which I did not order and none of the super kass or bata. I called and they told me that they ran out of the khan el khalili and that they will never have the super kass or bata.

hookahset is never going to any business from me again.

oh they sent Annual single apple instead of esk apple, Havana Marguerita instead of nakhla, Af melon instead of pear, Af aproicot instead of AF kiwi, and a few other mismatches.

I think that hookahset.com has shown us all some valuable business lessons. Don't advertise or sell stuff you don't have or can't get quickly. If you have something to sell (like Havana) let people know you have it. When fulling an order send people what they order in a timely fashion and don't send them stuff they did not order. Informing people about the status of an order is also a good idea. If you don't do anything of those things you don't deserve to be in business.

I think by looking at their website you can tell that they don't deserve to be in business. Even if the owner doesn't know English, he can copy and paste what is written on the boxes instead of spelling Nakhla as Nahla or Nachla.

My hookah set order was almost correct. The only thing they did was swap AF Pipe for Cigar. But I am glad I got my 2 Nakhla Esk. Apples and Nakhla Khan El Khalili. I know I got lucky.
