Default Is this good stuff?

I bought this Shisha in Egypt a couple of years ago, along with a pipe and have not smoked it, yet. Recently, I was in the UAE and had a wonderful experience with a new friend smoking in the evenings, so now I'm stoked about firing it up! Please all you experts, is this good stuff or do I need to get something different? (I am not afraid)!! :0)

Nakhla is pretty good stuff, depending on the flavor. I personally haven't tried the apple, but the double apple tastes like licorice and green apple Jolly Ranchers. The other one, I have no clue.

The other looks to be a box of Salloum. Probably unflavored.

Looking at the packages I would say Nakhla two apples and Salloum, as previously stated. IF you have been sitting on these for a few years at this time it may be worth a try but it's probably pretty dry at this point. Was it ever opened?

Looks like Plain Salloum, which is good, and very authentic. I wouldn't smoke anything over 2.5 years old.

the second is Salloum "zagloul". all of it I have had was a tad dry .... but a little glycerin and/or honey brings it up to speed .

Ah, I got my hands on that exact Salloum flavor.

It's utterly delicious.

Thanks for the replies! Ooh! I'm excited! The Shisha is in sealed plastic and still seems to have a lot of moisture. All I'm waiting on is a replacement glass water bowl, (my cat knocked the original one off the shelf and broke it). YES, FOR REAL!! I bought a little Coleman burner to cook the charcoal with. Gonna go for it and will send a report..........

Thats stuff is a good start, but don't stick to just those kinds. There are so many different types of Shisha out there, if you don't like this kind try another. Happy smoking.

Salloum plain is a very good product and it doesn't really matter how old it gets if you keep in a sealed bag. You can get ready to smoke with a bit of honey and glycerin but keep you fingers wet when mixing it in. I've got an article floating around here about how to smoke this sort of thing so i'd check it out as it really helps.

Fantasia has a couple of good flavours but they are too sweet and fruit like for regular use. SB is my least favorite brand on the market ( besides the evil king moassel) because it's never realistic just candy like and artificial tasting. Salloum on the other hand is a great brand that costs a third of what SB does.
