Default nahkla double apple

so I stopped into a local lebanese deli today to grab a yogurt drink, and on the way out I grabbed a 50g of Al Nahkla DA, which as some of you know, is one of my favs. But what I found interesting is that tonight when I opened it to smoke, there was no anise scent or flavor.I'm not sure what I think of this yet because I'm a long time fan of the traditional DA. I was also suprised because nahkla is, in my opinion, one of the most consistent brands w/regards to flavor.I was just wondering if anyone else had come across a similar batch.

nakhla isn't always consistent and theegyptian can attest to that. ar, i am sure you have but if you haven't try the nakhla mizo apple for anise, you'll be happy.
it just sucks about your experience and not getting what you should when you buy a hookah staple

it's not that it's neccesarily a "bad" batch. The apple flavors are full and pronounced and it would be a good standalone smoke if I wasn't expecting the nice anise undertones.

i was thinking about this, i have tried it from 50g packs as well and not liked it, but i need to get a 250g pack going, it's funny bc someone bought a 250g at the store (no self-promoting here) and returned it bc it was too licoricy. i was like ok, i;ll take it back, i can't resell it bu i can smoke it, if i go to work tomorrow i will try i and maybe, if you're a good boy, send you some

There's a place here that sells the jars of DA which I know are good as well.They're just really old, but still very good.

Ha Dunk! Nakhla is just that I believe. I have heard recently that Nakhla was taking the anise out of the Double Apple. I must say along with Abu Ronin I personally enjoy the anise flavour. If anyone knows for sure about this let me know, but I'm still interested in getting the Double Apple from Nakhla. After all, Nakhla is the king of Double Apple!!!!!

Nakhla is BY FAR my favourite brand of tobacco. I've tried Everything from AF to starbuzz to tangiers, fusion, alajamy havana, romman and many more but have found nothing to compare with the mouth sensation that nakhla gives. I admit i never had black style maasel and i'd love to try it someday but i think it wont kick nakhla odd the top of my charts.

Nakhla double apple, strawberry, mandarin, melon , All fakfakhina and sheherezade (SP) lines and even more nakhla flavours that i cant live without. I used to swear by AF but after smoking it for almost a year got sick of everything except Grape.

NAKHLA FTW. I NVER GOT DISAPOINTED BY IT

CHeers (btw do i sound like a rep of nakhla xD)

50g arent real consistent anyhow, 250g and up are the way to go. I still havent had Nakhla in the jar yet, I would probably buy them all if I saw them no matter how old they are hehehe

hey at least it was not a 250 g, my local persian store sells nakhla in the jar, is there any difference from in the jar than regular nakhla or is it just like beer in a can vs. beer bottled in glass?

idk about the jar vs. box thing, interesting.
I still think that if you want a good medium anise try Makhla Mizo Apple, and even SB Apple Americano has a bit of it that will satisfy those who like anise and those who don't.

at one store i found the jar was a tad wetter than the box, it may have been a storage issue i'm not sure; even if this is anecdotal evidence, its more manageable in a jar.

I bought a 50g pack about 10 days ago of the Nahkla DA and I definitely have the anise flavor/scent.

Jar is higher quality than carton and sells for double the price (to rub it in ur face dunk, carton is for 60 cents and jar is for $1.2).

However, I would LOVE Nakhla MINUS the anise. I hate anise.

Yup, the most consistantly bad. I thought it was impossible to take the crown from Soex, but after the El Basha line I was mistaken.

You have to be a lucky guy if you buy Nakhla. . .there are inconsistent batches . .for example i found a orange pack to be just stems and sticks no leaves. . and yesterday a 250g pack of nakhla cherry had about 100g in it ..

I'd have to say that Nahkla has been the most consistant tobacco I've smoked.

I don't know what brand the DA is that I smoked but it has the Anise flavor and it kind of throws me off actually. I thought it was odd cause I kind of like the licorice kind of flavor but to me it just doesn't sit well with the Apple flavor.
