Here's what I do to get Nakhla or just about any other shisha to smoke right.

Pack the bowl fluffy to just under the rim of the bowl (so the foil doesn't touch the tobacco), use 1 layer of Reynolds HD foil or 2 layers of thinner foil, poke a good amount of round toothpick sized holes, make sure you push the toothpick all the way through were the holes are for good airflow, put 1/4 stick of Exotica on the top off to one side a bit and put on a windcover, every 10 minutes change the coal position to the opposite side of the bowl and ash the coal every 20 minutes. You should get 45-60 minutes of smoke from this set up. If you want a longer session light another coal and start over.

just try to use like 3 or 4 foils, pick very much small sized holes in it! cut the charcoal in about three pieces and put them in a triangle on the outer edge! and just enjoy your hookah!!

I will put an even bigger gap between the foil and tobacco unlike most of the ones I smoke. Also I use my Bilal Olive wood nats for Nakhla since Exoticas can burn hotter than most. I run two coals, opposite side, very outter rim and move every 5 mins. Using Exoticas just means you need to watch your heat. I get amazing sessions from my dbl apple, kinda like a comfort tobacco.

i dont really have a problem. just fluff and foil. i use 2 1/4 pieces of an exotica stick and have another 1/4 in my little charcoal tray until it needs it. works out well usually.

Exoticas give off quite a bit of heat; and I have found they work better when used lengthwise on your bowl, that is to say, if they were a log on the ground, and you were looking at it, it would look really long. So from the top of the bowl, if you had 4, it would look like this...

I know that with some nahkla I can get an enjoyable session by using 1 layer of reynolds hd, 1/4th of an exotica stick, and a heatcover. Almost Identical to what dunkel does. I just pack it the same and do holes the same though I dont change that any. Good luck with your sessions
