Red face NAKHLA OVERPACK

Holy Santa Clause Shit!
I just used the overpack method I saw in one of Dee's and one of Shwnwhyte's videos on Nakhla DA.
OMG SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LICORICEY.
It was like pepper when it got to my throat; it actually hurt. I almost threw up a few times. The after about ten minutes the flavor died down a lot and was very tolerable. Amazing smoke, licorice flavor, never got harsh, pretty good after the first 10-15 minutes. Anyone else try this method and if so any other flavors tried?

I've used it to great success with Sweet Melon. I could have sworn I was eating cantaloupe, except it was even better because it didn't make my mouth itch like actual cantaloupe does!

Weird.. You and Dee got more anise, I got more apple... Maybe it's the batches? Mine was from a 50g box too, so it was dryer.

I used to hate anise, but Nakhla DA has actually made me appreciate it. Just in time, I'm visiting Greece this summer where apparently they drink Ouzo like the Germans drink beer

Mmmmhhhh Ouzo...

Mmmmmhhhhh Nakhla DA...

Mmmmmmmmhhhhhh German beer.....

I use the overpack method exclusively for Nakhla. I haven't tried it with Starbuzz yet because I find that that's pretty hard to burn anyways.

I've done it with Sweet Melon, Apricot, Double Apple, & Peach. It works wonders!

Try it. Worst that can happen is it will fail.

Too expensive for me to do it with Nakhla everyday...I don't want to think about the kind of money you'd spend on this. Then again I'm stingy with my tobacco.

True, true. That's one of the reasons I stopped doing it.

Well I only did it because I only had enough DA for 1.5 more bowls, so I figured why not use it?

I tried this out when I first heard about it because I was skeptic to how it'd smoke and I was more than pleasantly surprised with how well it works. It runs counter-intuitive to how I'd been taught to smoke but it defiantly works, just not sustainable for my smoking habits. I agree if you are scraping the bottom of your jar, its a good way to use up that last little bit, besides half a bowl is going to be pretty lackluster so if you can put it to good use, why not.

overpacking is the way to go with nakhla...I pack no less than 35g to a bowl..And don't skimp on the heat either..An overpacked nakhla bowl can take alot of heat without burning...

And I also find that the dryer a batch of nakhla two apples is the more you taste the anise...on a good fresh batch you hardly will even notice the anice under all that apple goodness

How can there be no burning if the shisha is in direct contact with the foil and heat source

If you just fluff the tobacco to the top of the foil a few loss pieces of tobacco will touch and burn ..But if its packed densly it won't burn..just besure to overpack it enuff.
