Default Good starter Nakhla?

Ok I am onto my 3rd pack of Nakhla now and I am still not impressed.
I have had a few years ago in a bar an apple Nakhla which I was happy and impressed with what I was smoking and how long it lasted with good flavour.
Now at home I have bought orange, cola and cherry
These have all lacked in taste, looked a lot dryer than what I have seen from other smokers videos.
There is no prob getting the smoke coming from nakhla and have tried both an Egyptian and modern type bowl and have made no change in flavour.
I know Nakhla is dryer than the rest but what I have here is almost like a pipe tobacco.


Sooooo any suggestions on good flavours to start with nakhla?

if you can, order it in the can from John and get Mizo Watermelon in the Tupperwear container. They are a bit juicier than those in the box so will be easier to mix up and pack and should give you more flavour

I use the regular Nakhla.
I buy it in the box, it is always moist and flavorful.

Are the 250g tubs juicer than the 50g packs I been buying?
Unfortunately I am restricted to bringing in 250g at a time to my country.

i would look to double apple, margarita, and choco mint. you wont get huge clouds but you can get decent smoke and great flavor. some times if nakhla has sat around a while it can get dry. also make sure if you have a 250g that you dont just pull some off the brick, take it all and put it in a bag and mix it every time you go to pack a bowl cause the juice really settles.

I highly recommend 250g jars(these are juicer then the 250g boxes usually also) or boxes over 50g boxes they are always so dry for me. Mizo is thier washed & juicer line. I would recommend Mizo Mint, Cherry & Guava. I also like regular Strawberry its not sweet though if your looking for sweeter flavors. Also check out my Endless Bliss mix posted at the bottom of my sig if you have those 3 flavors.

I did like their lemon, but I can't smoke it anymore. It gives me too hard of a buzz
