Default DM Explosion in a Box!

So the goods finally arrived today. I swung past the house to toss the stuff inside and could not resist opening the box and taking a few huffs of what this stuff smells like.

Little did I know the packaging was not the best in the world, lol. It looked like a molasses creature puked all over the inside of the box. The worm bait container wrapped in shipping tape and then a plastic bag did pretty much nothing to stem the tide of flavor all over the inside of the box.

Just hope it smokes well this evening when I (if I ever) escape from work. And for those that have not seen DM before here are a couple pics:

They all leaked pretty bad but the container looked like it had a lot more inside. Maybe others that have smoked DM before can attest to it's wetness and if the loss of vital fluid levels will impact the session flavor any?

Bummer dude! How did it come (USPS or FedEx)? I think Hookah1 usually uses USPS? Mine came via FedEx since the Hookah1 website could not verify my USPS address? I only received a 1 Kilo bag (double sealed with no problem) and a 500 gram plastic container similar to the ones you had. They did not use packing nuts or bubble wrap, and only paper. I have not heard of any DM/Hookah1 shipping complaints to date, and it sounds like you got the first. My DM looks like wet potting soil, not too wet. I hope it smokes well for you, and you have a great DM smoke.

Leakage is normal. Only so much the little containers can keep in and FedEx throwing it around doesn't help. If it didn't explode like ari's then your fine.

Tried a session of their Double Apple last night and was not really impressed. Took forever to heat up (20+ minutes) before I barely started to get the slightest hint of smoke draw. I had to use 3 CoCo-Naras on a Vortex and a wind cover to get it going and even then I really did not get much smoke (yes I know DM does not produce the rolling glycerin clouds). Session improved more on the second round of coals once the tobacco seemed to dry out a bit.

Tasted nothing remotely close to an anise flavor and after smelling the other 5 flavors I bought, the "flavoring" seems very muted when compared to the tobacco potted soil scents.

I will have to try another one tonight and see if I can improve my experience.

Luckily mine was just liquid. That mess looks like a box of feces thrown around, lol. Did you complain back to the vendor or just roll with it?

Have you tried any more dm yet? I have found with dm that the flavors are generally more in the background to the tobacco and earthy flavors and thats what creates the complexity which makes it such an enjoyable smoke. Also if 3 coals and a windcover is taking 20 minutes then try using 4 coals and a windcover and once you start getting good smoke then take one coal off because dm likes heat but too much and it burns easily also

3 coals on a vortex is fine. I dont understand why it was taking so long. I have 3 coals with a wind cover for 10-15 minutes and everything is fine. Take the wind cover off and just leave 3 on there.

Every Desi order I have received has leaked. He sends me so much free stuff that there's no way I could even say anything!

Really? I liked the DA a lot. I could taste the anise, although it was subtle. I tried strawberry milkshake and I could not taste any flavoring. Different results for different people I guess. Hope your next session turns out better

No not had another session since last night, had work all day. Going to try either the chadamaom (spelling) or Khus tonight. Hope it goes better.

Now here is the thing I have seen between different people commenting on DM. Some have said it is a dryer tobacco and others have said it is very wet. My batch is like half soaked in liquid so I am unsure which is the proper DM formula here. It was rolling so hot and not producing even a minimal amount of smoke that it was boiling. I have been only smoking for a couple months but read a lot and try not to be the ignorant fool most days, lol. I will just have to keep at it and figure it out session by session. But yeah 20+ minutes I was dieing and getting annoyed.

3 CH Nats and a wind cover right away seems to do the trick. Getting smoke and it seems to be rolling decent now even after the wind cover has been taken off.

DM Chardamom smells great does not taste like it smells but still good. DM reminds me of Skoal Chewing tobacco, lol.

Good to hear the DM smoke has come... The batches must vary? I only got two flavors, Strawberry Milkshake and Raspberry, and the Raspberry had less smoke then the Strawberry Milkshake. Both tasted great. 2 CH QLs work fine for me in about 5 minutes, but that's unusual. Most use at least 3 coals. Hope you enjoy the DM Dr!

Yeah like most have said it has a good flavor do not get me wrong. It just does not have a predominance for the "Labeled" flavor added to the tobacco. I have had two bowls so not formed a 100% opinion yet but, the base flavors seem cookie cutter thus far.

Like they almost start off with a standard mix and then work towards whatever the end flavor is supposed to be. You should like it if you are or have had more raw tobaccos. I will say the shit smells frigging awesome when it is baking. Like super incense, lol.
