Default Whats all the Hype About?

So i tried nakhla for the first time last night. A simple 50g vanilla box i found at my local smoke shop. I packed it fairly dense (as I've herd works better with nakhla because of its dryness) in my vortex bowl, and put 2 three kings ql's on it. It was an ok flavor but nothing that blew my mind like i was expecting from all the raving on this site. I tried it again thismorning and used coconara's instead of ql's and still, nothing that completely blue my mind. Perhaps its just the vanilla flavor in particular, but it was really weak and flavorless. Also, it didn't produce the massively fabled "nakhla buzz" that everyone talks about. (not that i wanted to get buzzed from it, i hate being buzzed.) Anyways, i'm gonna order some elbasha grape and some mizzo peach and see if those do the brand any justice. For now however, i conclude that nakhla's supposed deity-like rumors are completely false and are only the slander of the army of fanboys who would die fighting for this brand...

vanilla sucks and 50g boxes are usually shit. I hate when people judge an entire brand off of one flavor. try some sweet melon, chocomint, double apple, earl grey, cardamom, and any of the mizo's.

Not all Nakhla flavors are raved about in such a way. Nakhla is great, one of the best, but it's not perfect. You'll find that there is no single brand that has a perfect version of every flavor. Vanilla is good but all vanilla flavors are light and vary from artificial and chemical to natural and tasty but too light.

If you want to see what people are raving about I suggest going to the review section and trying the flavors that people rave about.

I wouldn't start with vanilla for any brand :X It may be because I know that nak vanilla is a very subtle flavor, so it's kind of cheating but w/e. Double apple, peach (reg), mizo orange/reg mandarin, zag, and earl grey all get a thumbs up from me.

I hated nak vanilla at first try (was my first flavor of nak to try too!) But I tried the DA and sweet melon...from then on I was a fanboi.

i'm not judging the whole brand off of just one flavor like someone above said, i'll give it plenty of chances to be amazing. What i am saying however, is that my first experience with nak is contrary to what everyone else claims.

Vanilla should be removed from all brands in general. Even as bad as 50g boxes can be there are some that do ok. If all they have is 50s look for sweet melon, apricot, peach, double apple, mandarin, mint or any of the Sherazade line if they have em. If you can swing a 250 try any of the above and or the Mizo line. Lemon and mint are two great ones there. And I have yet to pack Nakhla dense and it's always perfect.

You kind of did judge it off of one flavor...

Nakhla Mint, not mizo, is my favorite. But not a whole lot of people smoke it alone with me

AF Mint is my FAVORITE period. Nakhla mint is my favorite nakhla.

I don't like to mix my mint, I like it to punch me in the throat.

Imo you had the wrong flavour to start Nakhla with!

Never tried El Basha Grape / Mizo Peach.

But the normal peach is my favourite, and I smoked Mizo Grape, which is also very nice!

Like said before 50 gram boxes are crap and it evens adds to the crap fest that it was vanilla. as a rule of thumb vanilla should only be used as a mixer imo. You should try some of the more popular flavors of nakhla. Like Double apple, or Sweet Melon. Those are amazing smokes i think. happy smoking and i hope you have a better experience with this brand. Its one of my favorites!!

SB made a pretty damn good vanilla. SS vanilla was lacking flavor IMO.. but i mean, like a lot of people have said.. vanilla is a hard flavor to get right. I still need to give Nahkla a second chance myself.. i made the mistake of starting with Mizo Cherry.. did not much care for it. But i have over 3kg of tobacco right now (compared to my normal.. 300-600g stash) so the tobacco ordering is kind of at a standstill.
Getting back to the point, i think the best way to choose a new flavor is look for one consistently rated high by people whose opinions you trust.
