Talking Unwashed

I was at work today, and saw my boss setting up a hookah with nakhla tobacco (I work at a restaurant with an outdoor hookah lounge) with what was looking like he was overfilling the bowl. I thought at first he was setting it up incorrectly, but then I thought back to scoop's tangiers tutorial, which required you to "overfill" a bowl with tangiers. my mind got to thinking, and I thought that maybe you "overfill" all unwashed tobacco. Well, fast forward to this evening and I was smoking my hookah with AF Grape and I couldn't get it to stop tasting burned (still not sure why, I tried several different setups, different amount of coal, double foil, ect.) So I busted out my nakhla mint and set it up how I saw at work. It smokes like a dream, much better than when I was setting it up like washed tobaccos, much much thicker smoke, much smoother, all around better. I even had to bring out my brother to help me finish the bowl the buzz was so much more.

It got me really excited to eventually try tangiers (which will probably now be when I get paid in a few weeks) but in the meantime, does anyone have any nakhla tobacco reccomendations? Nakhla is about eight dollars a 250g at my work and we've got about a dozen flavors, so I can easly pick up a few; and for the longer term, what are everyone's tangiers reccomendations? I definately think you're talking to a future tangiers convert.

Also is it normal to have a lot of shisha stuck to the bowl? when I took off the foil, a huge chunk was stuck. Is this just because how it's packed? I just have never tried it before and was curious.

I'm smoking Mizo Peach right now.

Overpacked it, although not as much as I would Tangiers.

Excellent smoke. One of my favorites.

I have never had any luck smoking wetter shishas using the "contact" method.

I do contact smoke Nakhla sometimes when I get a random hankering for a cigarette.

foil sticking is normal doing it that way... I would suggest rotating your coal more often doing this.

Nakhla 2XA and Peach are the only flavors I really cared for, myself.

El Hennawy (spl?) can be smoked well this way too.

I think is an acquired taste .. I didn't like it a few years ago, but now I love it!

Nakhla Double Apple is in my top 3 favorites!

The only nahkla I have had that I can remember the flavor pretty well would have to be, banana, grape, and strawberry. All very tasty flavors and packed a hell of a buzz. I really do like nahkla when I can tame it :P. I tend to have heat issues if I am not using QL's

I never overpack my nakhla. No need to in my opinion!
Sam pretty named all the nakhla you need, although the fahkfahina fruit would be at the top of my list.

just as sort of a response, I haven't previously overpacked nakhla before; that was just a product of my head gears turning. But I've smoked nakhla many times before with a standard packing amount with wonderful results. Nakhla is really a good consistant smoke for me, I picked up a 250g of sweet mellon today at work and will be smoking it in about thirty minutes; I will definately come back with it's results.
