Default HH Shots Issue

Hey, I was wondering if anyone else had this issue. I bought a few Hookah Hookah shots flavors from a local shop. So far I've smoke like 4 or so of them, vanilla, orange, banana, cola, maybe another. However, each of them smelled ok before smoking but during and after, there was this weird popcorny smell and strange unidentifiable taste. Has anyone else ever experienced this?

For note, I have a 21" egyptian, use ice water in the base, used regular bowl, regular bowl with foil "funnel", and small funnel with scalli mod, tried both easy light jap and akhla coals. Same thing. And yes, been cleaning the rig.

for some reason i remember someone else telling me that hh had popcorn smell and he didn't like it at all.

you also made a phunnel out of foil? while it may not be the popcorn taste, when i made one out of foil i could definitely taste something weird.

I have blueberry and hazelnut shots. Thankfully i haven't had that flavor issue. However those are the only two I have used, so don't have that much variety experience with them.

i had all 39 shots of hookah hookah and everything was fine.
did you smoke hh before? the hh needs just 1/2 of the heat, al fakher e.g. needs to smoke good. if you have too many coals or too much tobacco, it could taste burnt - maybe like popcorn.

I have only smoked 2 shots from Hookah Hookah. They were Orange and Pineapple. I didn't taste anything odd or out of place.

you should try some of those same flavors perhaps in like a 50 gram or 250 gram and see if you get the same flavor. If you do then it is your setup. If not then its the shots. Isolate the problem

I haven't ever had this experience with the 50g HH that I have gotten, but I have never tried shots...maybe it was just a bad batch in the shots.

The shots that are older tend to be drier, and also may have even come unsealed. I was in a Cigar Shop, and the owner only sold these shots and said they were just the most fantastic things in the world. I got the shots from that store, and then from HH themselves, and the difference was crazy. All the shots from the Shop had a salty, old, dry taste, and some of the foil on a couple of them had opened a bit. The HH shots were perfect (for HH tobacco).

I can only think of that thing it says on food products and pill bottles, "DO NOT USE IF IS SEAL IS BROKEN"

thanks for the advice, all. i tried another flavor tonight (raspberry). it was moist, seal unbroken. i used less heat and packed less in as per suggested above. unfortunately, another popcorny event. 5 shots all smell funky, all of which were moist. idk, i think i'm just not going to try this brand again.

Holy crap. The Irish Cream should have obliterated you with Delicious Irish Creaminess... especially in a standard bowl. That's ridiculous, you got shafted.

Wait... I just assumed you smoked irish Cream.. you should smoke that.

It shouldn't deter you from the brand itself. There are many HH flavors that are absolutely delicious according to reviews. There is nothing wrong with their 250 grams

Oh yes. But don't expect Clouds, if that's what your all about, cause there won't be any large one. Maybe small ones... but that's it. It's about taste with HH.
