Default Nakhla Apple

Hey everyone,

this summer I was overseas in Nazareth to visit some family. Anyway my cousin who's a true hookah pro helped me pick out two hookahs to bring back to the states. now I've only used one of them (keeping the other for parts use) and i've noticed something odd. i brought back some nakhla double apple

and anytime i smoke that it tastes very funny. almost like a chemical taste but not quite.

i've tried everything, switched hoses, tried different bowls, cleaned the stem and vase, switched charcoals but nothing has helped. any idea what this could be? every other flavor tastes fine and i don't think it's this shisha because it smells delicious and i've had it before

Did you try acclimating it? Sometimes shisha can get shocked by climate and humidity change, and coming back from another country that seems highly likely. Try leaving it open in the package overnight, then when you're ready stir it up really good and see how it smokes afterward. Good luck!

Try just spending a few more bucks on some NDA from a local shop and see if it taste the same. NDA might not be your cup of tea, i know it surely isn't mine.

Nakhla DA should never have a chemical taste. Ive smoked kilos and kilos of it. Not sure what it is.

So you know how delicious it is haha. Do you think there might be something in the stem? That's the only thing I can think of.

Thanks a ton for the help so far everyone.

I too have gone through kilos of the stuff. I smoke at least 250gr a week of Nakhla DA and it's always the same great stuff.

If you're smoking other stuff from the same rig without issue, I would say there's something wrong with your particular batch of DA. I would suggest picking up a fresh batch and trying it.

i have a feeling that nakhla made for export is better than the local stuff, i could be wrong and it could actually be the opposite but either way you may just have a bad or old batch. hopefully you only had a 50g and not 250g but when you're done you should try getting some in the states and see if there is a difference.

It's certainly wet, and I have had it smoked overseas so I know it's something I'm doing wrong. This is truly a mystery lol.
