Default I'm Stumped hehe

Well last night I smoked some [FONT=Arial]Al Fakher Golden Eskandarani Apple and all I got was some really strong, weird flavor. It's really hard to explain what it was. It just wasn't enjoyable. The smell was great but when I was smoking it seemed very harsh and whatever I did to try and fix it never seemed to help.

I'm not sure if it was the flavor that I couldn't get used to or if it was me. I set it up the same as I always do.Exotica coals and medium phunnel with mod, I don't normally fill the shisha to the rim with my phunnel bowl so I don't know thats what needs to happen with this flavor.. Any ideas as to what I can try to make it a better session? I know people love that flavor so we (my friend and I) were kind of disappointed. It's a 250g pack so I really want to get it right before I do a review

my friend and I had some trouble with his AF watermelon being REALLY harsh. we just went down to the local medical supply store and bought some glycerin, added probably about 1 teaspoon to the tub and it smokes pretty well now

Yeah it is probably just dry. I usually add like maybe four teaspoons for wet tobaccos that are klinda dry and then about 6-7 for very dry ones like nakhla
(this i for 250 gram tub)

Yeah your not alone on that AF Apple. For some reason, my batch was VERY wet, but it still burns and it had this nasty freakin taste to it. What sucks is that my hokah and hose was completely clean...I even tried it on my BFF's hookah and the plastic was still there

Right on! thanks for the help. I'm happy it wasn't me. So would it be smart just doing like a teaspoon of glycerin in there and mix it? Then if i needs more put more in

Its a 250 tub right? just put in maybe 3-4 teaspoons since it is a very wet tobacco. Let it air out for 2-3 hours so the glycerin can soak in the tobacco. Hehe if you don't it'll taste very soapy and I know from experience ^_^

just add some glycerin, but not too much. if you do put to much, just acclimate it.

Just start with two teaspoon. Its easier to add more than wait hours acclimating.

Well I tried my [FONT=Arial]Al Fakher Golden Eskandarani Apple again last night after putting some glycerin in it and it still wasn't too good. I'm happy I put it in my small bowl so I didn't waste it. I couldn't even take hits out of it cuz it was making me sick. I don't know if its the flavor I don't like or if I got a bad batch. Lots and lots of smoke though, but thats about it.
