Question Help with Nakhla Sweet Melon

Hey, yesterday i decided to set up my nargile and try out a bowl of some nakhla sweet melon. When I got to smoking it, the flavor was mute and rather harsh no mater how I confugured my coals. After about 20 min of no progress i descided to instead pack a new bowl of nak DA. The second bowl was packed and heated exactly the same way but went smoothly through the origional set and a second set of coals for about an hour.
What seems to be going on here?
I sweet melon more finicky? also, the tobacco smells less like fresh cantaloupe and more like one which was setting out for a while.

My sweet melon doesn't smell "fresh", but still smells like natural canteloupe. This tends to me more heat sensitive, but I have found packing tighter remedied this, at least in my environment.

Sweet melon is definitly more of a "harsh" flavor. You can take certain precuations by making sure you dont have too much/little smoke and some space between the foil.

I always smoke out of a phunnel bowl and i usually pack it pretty tight using 4 coals to get it started and i take one off after 10 minutes. Then i put the 4th back on when needed. But if i dont want to smoke for a long time i pack it lightly and use 3 coals taking one off as needed. i always have three rings of toothpick size holes and no holes in the middle unless i feel that the pull is too tight. Hope this helps!

Use a regular bowl and use the overpack method! It does wonders!
