Default Nakhlas a bit strong...

Personally - i find nakhla a bit strong, it somethimes makes me feel a bit rough. So i was wondering if there was a general agreement on a brand that has great flavour but isnt as strong as nakhla =]

Any suggestions?

Cheers!

AF. It has the best smoke and the best flavour.
If you dont get a bad batch that is.

I am a huge fan of Nahkla and AF, can't go wrong with either of them. Sorry you aren't too excited about the Nahkla.

Fusion and Sinbad are both very good brands. They aren't as great as Nakhla though!

AF is the best so far. I love my naklha peach but it does give you that buzz, quick! try smoking your naklha in an egyptian bowl.

I smoked Nakhla for 9 straight years, then I met AF and it was love at first sight. Anyways, Nakhla needs good heat management (double folded foil, break down ur coals into little pebbles and put few of them on the edges, remove windcover as soon as it starts)

Nakhla is alright, nothing amazing but not a bad smoke. If you want something a bit weaker i'd smoke some washed tobacco, AF/Romman all the way! (I've yet to try SB but i've heard some good things)

Nakhla is fantastic. I agree with Dunkel, Sinbad and Fusion are very good. AF has fallen off my favorite list with it's issues that keep popping up with cut and recipe changes. Fusion exotic pear, cactus pear, watermelon have all been great. Sinbad has a lot of very nice smoking flavors. You should really try and give Nak a second chance. Try sweet melon, margarita, apricot, mandarin orange, Fak fruits. Nakhla mint is better imho than AF and I have both at the moment. Nakhlas only heat issue is that it's drier than most. Just add honey/glycerin mix to it if your having trouble with heat. And always make sure that your picking up fresh Nakhla.

I've never gotten a buzz from smoking narghiles, pipes or cigars (hate cigarettes) so the only thing makes what I smoke strong is the flavour. While Nakhla makes some stuff I like i've never found it to be assertively flavoured. When I think of powerful flavourings I think of spiced juraks and such. Basically, what I want is complicated and rich flavours rather then to just go "wow, blueberry" or whatever.

Just have to add, try the Mizo line from Nakhla. Very good stuff.

I dont like naklah too much too. It was the fist time i was smoking real tobaco shisha (I only have smoked soex before) a weu the smoke maked me feel real bad. I had stomach ache. I also felt a bit dizzy and the strawberry flavour desgusted me. Anyway not everyone react the same way to large amount of tobaco or nicotine whatever.

Now that I smoke reguraly cigarillos the shisha no more giave me that horrible sensation but i continue to smoke more slowly when its question of "real" shisha.

Think of nakhla as the old middle eastern guy sitting at a table smoking his hookah and having some turkish coffee. He keeps it real and doesn't even say hi to you when you see him.

Nakhla is down to earth shisha. It gives you that buzz quite fast.
Personally I prefer AF best... gives out a perfect smoke...
as for Starbuzz... it's an excellent smoke but it lacks a little in taste.
