Default Naklah help

I bought peach Naklah shisha recently; very tasty. The only thing is that i seems very dry and appears to harsh faster than Al Fakher (which is very moist). I was wondering if Naklah is like that or if I just bought a bad batch. If either way, any tips to make the bowl last longer? Thx for any help

Yamez stole my solution. I always tried to smoke my Nahkla with exoticas. It would always get really harsh. The other day when I used a 3 kings ql I had a little more luck. It didn't get harsh nearly as fast and it was a very tasty strawberry. Probably my favorite one.

All the nakhla shisha Ive tried is dry. I always add a little honey into my storage container and stir it around. Its adds a little sweet taste and makes it burn a little slower. Try that out!

Also double up the foil on the bowl. It will help with heat control.

nahkla is one of worst tobacco brands, but if u want just add glycerin or honey,
4 tea spoons for every 50g

nakhla is an interesting mix. due to its most of the time dryness, start out with less heat. if it starts out thin it will gradually get to a perfect temp after a little bit of smoking. if youre heating it very hard and it starts hitting nice very quick, it will most likely burn

OK, the key I have found for nakhla is less heat, put the coals on the edge of the bowl and use a windcover, if you don't have a windcover I did a how to vid of it on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xQLzxlsSdU

Nakhla is really good, I enjoyed some Nakhla Earl Grey, that Dunkel sent me, and it was easily my favorite Nakhla I have ever tried! Got a review of it coming soon.

Nakhla is so easy to smoke. Take out the stems if you like, let it acclimate for 3 hours or so, pack it fluffy, make sure it doesn't touch the foil, round toothpick sized holes, 1/4 of an Exotica stick and a windcover. No more tweaks needed. Enjoy the thick clouds.

I place the foil shiny side up with nakhla. I find that it works better and gives me sessions above an hour and half on my little 7g bowl.

Dunk is my go to guy when I have questions about Nahkla. Him or Abu. I haven't tried the heat cover thing lately. I will give it a shot today though, to see if I can get some huge clouds with my Nahkla Strawberry.
