Default Double apple?

Just got done smoking a bowl of nakhla da and have to say I wasn't that impressed by it. Maybe because I expected a lot due to all the hype it gets, don't get me wrong it was a decent shisha. On the other hand i smoked some af mint and loved it, in my top 3 now

What was your setup? If you set it up perfectly it's kinda like an apple pie taste to me, and smells like it too.

I never could get it to smoke the way it should on the vortex, standard bowls are the way to go for Nakhla DA

Nakhla two apples may have a delayed reaction, it may hit you later that it may bring you under it's spell and all hope is lost for you you should have never touched it send it to me

A STANDARD Egyptian Bowl is pretty much the way to go for anything worth smoking!

.. As for your double apple experience .. it is an acquired taste .. don't give up on it! I hated it the first time! But now I smoke it about 50% of the time ..

I tried it for the first time very recnetly myself. I have to say it was very mild. I aggree with the way people hype it up, i expected something more. It is a very relaxing smoke though. Next time you smoke it, drink a glass of apple juice with it! Its awesome! I think next time i am going to put some apple cider in the vase.

Not saying it was not good just that it wasn't that amazing. I have also heard it's better the 2nd time around. I only got a 50g sample but if I end up liking it I will get the da in a jar. My setup was an al fakher 30 inch, a phunnel bowl, and a narbish hose, I used 2 ch nats and the 3 after that. I used water chilled by ice and put in the vase without the ice. I absolutely love the af mint though and highly recomend it . It is the best mixer in my opinion, super tasty, nice clouds and lasted about 2 hours.

Don't worry. DA isn't for everybody. If it was, that's all Nakhla would make.

I think most people like Nakhla because of the Buzz, IMO AF is Quality shisha, i havent tried Starbuzz...but Nakhla is great for buzzing! and AF is great for taste and smoke!

I smoke DA almost regularly. I used to detest the flavor for the longest time and now I absolutely love it. Same thing with rose and the herbal flavors. They tend to be a mellower relaxing flavor that just soothe the palet not overload it with flavor.

I strongly dislike the nakhla brand tobacco, it's very very dry. I don't like double apple much either, the flavor sticks in the base, hose and stem even after thorough brushing and scrubbing. Pharoah's brand tobacco is my favorite, it's not too dry and not too wet.

If, (by chance), you've only had Nakhla from 50gr packs, I can understand the impression that it is dry. Nakhla in 250gr packs has considerably more moisture. DA from a jar is wetter yet.

EDIT:If you want to see some dry shisha, check out Desi Merli.

The stuff I have is certainly moist, but not wet. I think compared to most mainstream shisha brands it could be considered dry. Just my opinion of course! And BTW, I've been having good success with it. Vortex bowl and a little more heat works wonders. The Kewra is my favorite so far.

I actually hated DA when i started and stopped smoking it, then tried other flavours, and finally went back to it after all the hype on here, and i have to say i absolutely love it, it is a acquired taste, and never say never, go back and try it after you have tried other flavours you may change your mind on it
