Default Mizo Gum and Burnt Taste

Ok, so I've tried smoking Mizo Gum several times now, and each time it tastes like ash so bad that I gag. My setup:

KM Heart of Lion
Vortex
Nammor
CH Nats

Now, I've tried underpacking, overpacking, "normal" packing, more tobacco, less tobacco. And the weird thing is that it's not getting harsh, just nasty as hell.

Is it the batch or am I doing something wrong that I can't figure out for the life of me?

My guess would be your packing method... John from CH was nice enough to throw in a sample of it for me in my order I got this week and I smoked it last nite and it was great... tasted just like spearmint trident gum. I used pretty much the same setup as you km double pear, vortex, hd foil, 2 CH coals and a makeshift windcover. I lightly packed it, making sure there were no clumps with numerous small evenly spaced holes.
Best of luck on your next try
It could possibly be the batch as well

What's really weird is that the container smells just like spearmint gum. The taste just isn't leaving the bowl.

Same here actually. In my vortex / egyptian it just doesn't taste too well / Burnt taste which I haven't tasted in the past 400 bowls :P

In my phunnel it tastes way better & less burnt taste. But still not up to my expectations.
I'd love to hear an explanation.

I've been liking tangiers noir lime though much better than any tangiers flavor... as a sidenote

I've been using a Vortex for months. It's the only bowl I like to use, and I've never had this problem with any other Nakhla flavor.
