Default What is the best way to pack Nakhla

What is the best way to pack (packed, dropped in, fluffy), and in what type of bowl (egyptian, phunnel, vortex). Is their better ways to increase cloudage, flavor?

I usually pack mine dense (irregardless of the bowl, in all honesty they all smoke just about the same when packed right), I sprinkle the shish a little above the rim and then just pack it down dense below the rim (so the foil doesn't touch it), some people sprinkle some more on top after the pack down, I don't, and it works great, good smoke, good flavor and it lasts longer.

I rarely do the overpack anymore, but it gives great clouds and flavor, you'll just be using twice as much tobacco, Dee has a how to vid, check that out if you want to try.

Pretty much word for word how I do it, including the bit about no longer using the overpack method. I almost always use a standard egyptian for Nakhla but that's just a matter of preference.

I also agree the overpack method I only have used for Apple and DA but im sure it will work with others but I dont really even use that anymore. Nakhla is in my opinion the smiplist shisha to pack. Good Luck
