three kings are nearly tasteless, so there is just the flavour of the tobacco on smoking

When you say natural coals, can that be any coal like from my fireplace type of coal or does it have to be branded?

you cant take normal bbq coals
in britain you can buy Cococha for example. thats the natural coal we use in germany.
there are some other brands like instant-lite, magic shisha coal or zg mirage ...
just ask in your headshop or search in an onlineshop

True!

BUT, lately I have been using a lot of "naturals" and I am definitely noticing the difference when I go back to quicklights! Ewwww (I only use quicklights when I am feeling lazy though)

True true I only use my 3K if I am low or out of naturals, I am traveling, or there is not stove around to cook the natural coals.

I like naturals over QLs anything...All QLs aren't great to use for hookah since they do not last as long imo

Pharaoh's Elite are better than Golden coals in my opinion, but QL's suck compared to Exotica's or even Easy Lite Japanese style silver tabs.

I don't think I'll ever go back to QLs as my main coals. After getting used to naturals....QL just taste straight out nasty, especially if you HAVE to use them (like when your naturals run out)

I think those Nakhla coals are the ones DMC uses and likes so well. Just because you don't like their shisha doesn't mean their charcoal is going to suck. LOL

I had AF watermelon. I don't know if it is just me but the flavoring got old fast. The second or third time I smoked the flavor I felt like throwing up.

4 years ago Al Fakher would put a silver hologram on the pack to prove authenticity.Now they have some kind of wrapper that doesn't prove diddly squat.
