Default Desi Merli Rules!

I finally got a big shipment in of Desi Merli flavoured tobacco recently (yes, it's dry and not ready to smoke out of the bag) and damn, this stuff blows all the huge Arabic brands away. I've been enjoying Almond, Saffron, Coffee, Vanilla, Cardamon, Khus & [FONT=Courier New][/FONT]Kewra flavours with a bunch of friends and all I can say is that DM is what smoking is all about!

I'm talking rich flavour, like Fladers Red Ale or Gueze or Gueuze/lambic rich. A riot of flavours, complicated and heavy. Heavy as in Orange Sunshine's latest CD heavy. I think i'll donate all my AF to charity as I can't see wasting coals on it any more.

I've had about 15 people smoking in the house today and even though none of them are into traditional stuff they all loved flavoured DM.

Kewra is simply amazing, floral/fruit/latakia/sweet flavours all at once. Khus is more floral toffee/burley/latakia and just amazing.

My taste buds are doing handstands. Wow.

Yes Kewra and Rooh Afza Pan Desi Murli are very nice. They also pack a thumpin' buzz. Smoking it is like have a fine liquor, don't guzzle, it's sippin' quality.

I knew it for months but at the party I had the best tasting DM experiences ever. Everything just magically came together for an awesome time.

Dunk, I am a bit amazed to find out that you've tried and liked Kewra and Rooh Afza Pa as I always figured you were more of a more mainstream sorta guy.

Mainstream? Nah, I'm one of the few rallying cries for Nakhla's World Domination. I'm one of the first people at Hookah Pro to try Salloum flavored shisha tobacco, and shared it with other members trying to spread the good news. Not only that but I consider the Khansar Hamasa and Sunset samples some cool guy arranged for me to get to be the finest shisha tobacco I've ever had the pleasure to smoke.

I do admit that I like Fusion, Sinbad, and a few Starbuzz flavors, but eveyone likes a little candy now and then.

Damn straight Dunk! Amen to that brother! I need to try DM bad, but haven't gotten around to ordering it. Salloum wasn't for me, but Shooting Star kicked some serious ass. And everybody know Nakhla is what the big boys smoke.

I've tried Desi Merli plain and smoking it is very similar to enjoying a very fine scotch (neat, of course) you don't huff and puff away on this stuff, but sit back, smoke and think about things like "What if C-A-T spelled dog, and is the market economy paradigm really all its cracked up to be?". My preference is still for the fruity and sweet stuff, but stuff like Salloum, Desi Murli, other stuff definately have a place amoungst my smoking arsenal.

Well it seems that more people are more excited about traditional moassels then I would have guessed.

Dunk, you should look into mixing 1 part Earl Grey, 1 part DM Cardamon and 3 parts Khus. Joyous is all I can say.

FBD, the think I like about DM is that since it comes dry you can set the moisture to what ever you want and it's really cheap.

For the DM party everyone brought a local farm ale or a Polish Porter and dish for a really big potluck as they say in the states. We had 16 narghiles set up (two rigs per flavour) so everyone could try out everything. We all mixed the glycerine/honey/tobacco before the meal and ended the night singing along to Nightstalker, Sundail and Hawkwind tunes on the stereo.

Everyone had lots to drink, smoke and eat and everyone got into DM. A great time alround.

Some things to remember:

- DM comes dry so mixing it with honey and glycerine is vital. I've an articlehere someplace about setting it up.
- You need to ask Kamal at hookah1 about the DM flavours not listed on the site and note that you need to buy a kilo at a time. The price pretty cheap so it's not a big deal however.
- Abu gave me a killer tip about mix DM plain with Earl Grey. It's fantastic

Someone mentioned Silver machine which is a cool song. I guess someone here must be about my age to remember that chestnut.

Thanks guys, I will look into those. I am so tired of candy stuff, the traditional stuff is so appealing to me. I cant wait to give it a shot.

Thanks for the offer Husky but I have a bunch of stuff and too little time to smoke. What I do need is some BBQ recipes as mine got lost in the move. Any help in that direction would be great.

I haven't gotten around to trying any of the DM fruit flavours other then apple which is very nice and natural. Anyone try the other DM fruit flavours yet?

I have tried DM Pineapple but I cannot detect any pineapple flavor at all. Tastes just like plain DM to me.

I wonder what Pista is? Never knew that DM makes Roohafza but Afzal's version is really good. I think that you have to order 900g per flavour when you go with something other then plain but the price is so cheap it doesn't really matter. Anyone try the Roohafza yet? Pudina is some sort of mint I think but i'm not sure.
