Default not impressed with esk apple

Ok so I got my hands on that hard to come by Nak Esk apple and it is a huge bust. Give me douple apple any day. This stuff tastes like watered down soap and the cut looks like sum1 took 175g of tobacco leaves and 175g of pure stems and just put it in a blender. Give or take, it has a Nak Guava / Pistachio cut chunky style. Definatley not the usual Large cut with the few big stems that Melon comes with. I taste some apple exhaling, but nothing is sticking to the tastebuds. I'd smoke AF Golden Esk Apple anyday over this.

Pass.

Yep, I agree. I thought I was the only one, until now.

Except for the AF part, I think that still sucks.

I like it myself,But its deff not one of nakhla's better cuts,Like you said I think sweet melon is probly the best cut of nakhla.
It reminds me alot of manderin its good but the flavors kinda one sided and lacks some complexity.It does have a nice green apple flavor but needs a little something mixed to it, maybee some jasmine or add it to some two apples to bring out more green apple flavor and cut down the anise a bit.
I'm Big on apple flavs I'd say its nakhla's second best apple.There'e not much difference between mizo/single/basha apple...
Maybee apple askandarany mixed 50/50 with mizo apple would be nice version of two apples

I have to agree that it really wasn't "holy grail" of tobaccos that I wanted it to be. It is not nearly as good other Nakhla flavors. I do enjoy it more than I enjoy Al Falkher because I'm not a fan of how much glycerin is used with the AF Golden Esk, but its AF so I expect that. I just prefer Nakhla because it doesn't irritate my throat like Al Falkher.

Yeah gave me an actual 'buzz' as opposed to just the 'satisfaction' of nicotine.


& I personally really liked this flavor, as can be seen on my previous board :P.

But whatever is your cup of tea I cannot say is mine & vice versa.
