Default 1st time nakhla

i recieved some nakhla double apple today along with my windcover and im just waiting for my girlfriend to get home from work to try it out.. this is gonna be our 1st time smoking nakhla and was wondering how different its going to be compared to SB and AF which is all we've really smoked since thats pretty much the main stuff our local shops carry. Ive heard/read stories of ppl not enjoyin their 1st time with nakhla because its "unwashed", unlike SB and AF, and would like any tips to help prevent a bad smoke session.

i actually just bought a box of nakhla orange and had hakhla for the first time about a week ago. i really liked it. it gave me a huge buzz! especially after mainly smoking AF and or washed stuff. i did feel a little sick after smoking it for a long time but i think thats because i didnt eat all day (and maybe a little bit because im not used to unwashed tobacco). i realy enjoyed it but i would say make sure youve got food and drink hahah

Nakhla is a different taste completely from washed tobacco (like sb), you will get a distinct undertone of tobacco, nothing big like dm, but it's there and if you're a non smoker, smoking on an empty stomach, or just hoovering it you will get nauseous (vs an otherwise nice mellow buzz). Just take it easy, drink plenty of water and you'll enjoy it.

What SonOfGram said. In fact, I find myself agreeing word for word with nearly every post he makes, just refer to him when looking for my opinion!

take your time smoking it, relax and enjoy. Drink water while smoking and eat before.

Nakhla is good.
Very traditional with good flavor
and a nice buzz.
Nakhla El Basha Grape is my favorite

A rebirth of hookah smoking for you.
Have fun with it. Nakhla is the only brand I trust enough to try new flavors in 250g containers.

hey guys I just tried nakhla for the first time, DA. I'm not sure how i felt about it, the flavor was OK (not a huge fan of the anise) but the way it smoked, just not nearly as smooth as unwashed tobacco? like you can really feel the smoke in your lungs, almost is like liquid or something, hard to describe. my freinds (who are noobs) kept coughing and saying it was harsh, but for me it was just different....is it supposed to be like this?

-Krikaleak

P.S. my setup is

Egyptian hookah
Egyptian bowl
1layer HD foil
4 japanese square coals
SOG's pack method, packed a little over rim then padded down

any feedback would be great cause i don't want to give up on nak!

I was really surprised the other day to see some DA Nakhla in a local turkish deli so I picked some up. Haven't tried it yet though, I did buy a new Vortex bowl last week that I've yet to try but I've heard that Nakhla is better in an Egyptian bowl and packed tighter than normal?

Nakhla, and especialy the 2 apple tobacco, is the primary tobacco we use in israel. It gained the reputation of being the highest quality, best tobacco around. A few more tobbaco companies tried their luck but failed totaly. Nakhla is my favorite. And u mate just bought the best tobacco, 2 aplle. And just so u know, that's the only tobaco arabs are smoking around here. U 2 have fun!

I agree that Nak might be the best tobacco BRAND....but DA being the best flavor...I cant agree with that.

I feel the same way, everytime I look at a thread that he's already posted in, I just hit the back button and find a new thread. There's no need to repeat him. Lol.
