Nakhla is a good brand, but like every brand, some just suck! Double apple, cinnomin, and any of the mints, minus gum, are damn good.

I agree, the nak vanilla sucks. I judged nak from that one flavor alone, I've got some pistachio coming that should be tasty though.

I also did not like the taste of the vanilla.. but then again vanilla is an aquired tast. I also don't like vanilla coke. But other flavours of Nakhla is good. DA, orange, etc.
Don't give up on Nakhla.

Nakhla Vanilla is one of the few flavours I don't like from Nakhla, along with coconut and Cola

o ya i think the reasoning as to why vanilla is weak is because vanilla is not (or at least was not) popular in the middle east but rose is an extremely popular flavor so the rose is strong and the vanilla is not (where as the Americans want it the other way)

Vanilla as a flavor in general is weak and have yet to find a brand that produces a decent tasting Vanilla. Nak is a good brand I have yet to find a bad Mizo taste so you might be better off trying one of those for sure... and just remember just because a lot of people like something doesnt always mean you will...and about the "buzz" i have never gotten one from Nak but i dont like to have a buzz anyways

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...
i have tried af vanilla and its dam sexy

I've yet to find Nahkla anywhere in my area. I know I can just order it online, but I'd rather buy a couple samples of it just to bring home and try before I decide to make an order online for it and then end up not even liking it. There's only two smoke shops in my area I know of and neither one carries Nahkla. I'm going to try some gas stations now and HOPEFULLY if any of them have Nahkla it isn't nasty and shitty from sitting on a shelf for a year. My faith in gas station shisha was somewhat restored recently when I bought some AF lemon mint from a Shell gas station and it was actually good and cheap, as cheap as online even at $2.99 a box.

I actually like nak vanilla (as HN mentioned above it is a milder flavor and is better as a mixer), I mix mine with primarily cinnamon (for a cinnabuns flavor) and with nak strawberry (two mild flavors make a good mix).

The Orange taste like a house hold cleaner or something especially when compared to AF orange.

The Mizo Mint... I don't know what to say about it beside nasty stuff.

Nakhla Cherry is fucking gross. So is Mizo Watermelon. They taste like iodine. Literally. Most other flavors don't taste like anything. The only ones I like (and I've smoked a fucking ton of Nakhla) are sweet melon and peach. El Basha grape is good when it's fresh. Double Apple is good if you like anise. Fakkfahina mixed fruit is also okay.

in my experience with nak orange compared to af orange, nak is very realistic and af wasnt too far off realistic but had some of the nasty ketchup undertone.

the reason people think some of the citrus flavors taste like cleaners is cause the cleaners use the oil of the fruit to scent and as a cleaning agent

You also picked a flavor that no brand has gotten perfect yet.
Try Sweet Melon, Double Apple, stuff like that.
Even if you dont like it, everyone has different taste. To some people AF tastes amazing but to me it tastes awful. Doesnt make them fanboys, it just means they have different taste.

Like everybody else said Nak Vanilla isn't the best to start with. Try most of the mizo line, I'd recommend guava and grape, sweet melon, chocomint, cardamom. Vanilla is a hard flavor to replicate believe it or not, real vanilla from a vanilla bean or high quality extract has over 400 compounds that make up the flavor as opposed to artificial vanilla flavors, which is most likely what is used has only one, vanillin.
