adding glycerin will dilute the flavoring additives. Also, did u tightly close the tub (air tight) or not? My best guess is u did not seal it well and the flavor evaporated

Seal in airtight containers if possible, store in a cool, dry place and avoid hot and humid places. Also make sure the loss of flavor is because of the tobacco not something else (hose, stem ...etc.)

As much as I LOVE the AW tubs, they aren't airtight. Same happened to my Afternine - it dried right out. Nothing I could do to save it, 200g wasted. Sammn sad

Put your tobacco inside a zip-lock then back into the tub. Never trust the containers they come in - any brand - for the most part, they aren't ever 100% airtight.

Try to smell the tobacco and see if there is still flavor smell, if not, then it's wasted

If you can "smell" it, you can add some glyercine or higher-grade honey, maybe about a tablespoon for the whole container. Mix well and let sit atleast overnight. Check it the next day, see if that helps.

I would suggest the honey over glyercine - that produces smoke, your looking for taste.

Bounty is lighter in flavor than say Afternine, if you've already added the glycerine, maybe try alittle honey. If that fails (and you've cleaned both your hookah and checked your hose), then maybe it's shot.

thats odd.. its deff bc you didnt seal the tobacco all the way.. my Af tubs seal nicely.. to wat Sammn said.. zip lock next time. and if still all else fails.. then maybe AW isnt for you. ?

i wouldnt add glycerine unless its super dry. glycerine in high quantities becomes very nasty tasting very quick

Hello my friend, I am smoking Al Waha Bounty at the moment and it took quite a bit for the smoke density to pick up (I believe I packed it rather tight.) The flavour is there but it's not a very strong flavour, however, you can taste the sweetness very well. Perhaps you got a faulty batch? I don't know what could be the problem with you, but as for me, the flavour and smoke density picked up slowly. And as for your comment about Nakhla, yes it lasts and yes it is very good. You will get good smoke density and good flavour from it as long as you watch your heat management

AW sucks.
I had some vanilla, it was wet for about 48 hours. and it was in a ziplock bag inside a ziplock bag inside a ziplock tub
