Default Is it just me?

Or is all HH shisha just really weak? I'm hoping that's the problem, cause I smoked some Romman out of my friend's QT today, and it tasted good. But mine still just tastes like flavored cigarettes almost. It's not burnt or anything, my heat management is good. It's just there sin't too much flavor.
I have some JM's coming(hopefully tomorrow), so maybe that'll be better.

I've always had pleasant sessions with HH, maybe I'm just not used to super strong flavors?

The only one that was kind of strong at all was the Irish Cream.

I think HH has some good strong flavors. Hazelnut is one that is nice and hearty.

There are defiantly some pungently strong HH flavors. I never had problems getting HH to smoke out of a vortex with some careful heat management. It defiantly is a more temperamental tobacco for a modern washed style but if you're careful it will be kind to you in return.

I have Guava and Pineapple and both are extremely weak. After a while they do both taste like cigarettes/tobacco. They have a weak taste and after a while, they lose it altogether.

I find the flavor dies after about 20/30 minutes.

Some flavours are like that, but i enjoy quiet a few of them, the orange is really good and flavourful.

HH in a vortex with 3 coals works really well for me

I've noticed this...I've also noticed that all of the HH flavors have a very distinct chemical-like smell to them. It's an obnoxiously offensive smell.

I have noticed the 'chemical-like' smell also. But it never seems to affect the taste.

HH is a funny tobacco to pack, I think someone did a how to review a year or so ish ago. i would check those out and see how other people pack it and hole patterns and stuff like that. Cause i know some sessions i get with HH are amazing and then others suck ( this is even with same flavors)

What about compared to other brands? How does it stand up AF, Nakhla, JM's, Starbuzz, etc?
