Default Double apple failure

So I've smoked nakhla's double apple twice, and both times it has had a nasty rubbery taste to it, does anyone have an idea whats wrong? I was thinking maybe it had something to do with the elevation change, as i live in colorado and i oredred it from hookah john. I was so excited when i recived it and its been kind of a let down.

I've never had that problem with DA. I have with Tropicana though. I was never able to get that stuff right. Tasted just like burning latex.

I dought its the elevation change..just brought my two apples from wisconsin to wyoming from 500 ft to 9000ft and had no problem tastes the same as always...

I'd double check any bowl grommets/ gaskets make sure there not getting hot...I personally never use a bowl gasket just a wet papper towel wrap.

i will have to try not using the bowl grommet and see how it turns out, it might be that im smoking out of a new narbish hose too. but i washed the hose with baking soda, so i thought that would have taken care of the garden hose taste.

That's weird. Nakhla and epsecially double apple is very consistent tobacco. I've been smoking double apple for some years now and never had a single problem with it.

Are you using a nw hose? because new hose tend to have this plasticy taste.

I know it does not come up much but there are counterfeit brands out there and Nakhla is targeted once in a while. Nakhla DA has always treated me well but then again I have only ever smoked it out of a jar.

Could you post pictures of the packaging?

I got some Nak DA from a trade and it's failing for me, too. I don't know that it tastes like rubber, though. It just tastes bad (maybe chemically?) and seems to get harsh easily, which confuses me because I thought Nak could take heat well? Meh

Yup. That clinches it.

It could just be a bad batch. It could be burning. It could even be that your taste buds just don't agree with the mix. I have known people that hated my favorite blends and pick up entirely different flavors from them.

I say let it air out and try again in a day or two.

Hookoah is a wierd thing. I have noticed as kalutika stated. People like and taste different things in the tobacco. So you may just not like the flavor. Try it a couple more times.

I hope that isn't the issue, I have smoked Taru double apple and fell in love with it. Perhaps in the next day or so I will give it another shot.

When I first tried out double apple I was greatly dismayed and discouraged. Didn;t try it for a long time. Now it's one of my favorites. everyone is different and tastes change on a daily basis.

True! I used to enjoy DA when I first started smoking but then when I got my first MYA from hookah-shisha.com and tried the roman DA, I almost DIED

Are we sure your not putting too much heat on it? DA is a hit and miss for people some people like it some don't

Nahkla DA (or the DA flavor in general) is just as susceptible to being over-hyped as any other product discussed on this forum.

I live in Colorado and I smoke Nakhla DA all the time. It's really nice and I don't think that the elevation is the problem. You might want to try another hose and see what happens.
