Default I need to dethrone the Pom. King

As it stands now, I can't find a better Pomegranite than Layalina. It's the perfect mix of sweet and sour, perfect sized clouds and plenty of juice (it's layalina, come on =)). The Layalina market is drying up, I've tried 3 different sites and from what I hear Layalina is slowly fading away.

What I need is another brands pomegranite to get me hooked. AFs grenadine was far too sweet for me, and Starbuzz's pome. . . well let's just say we're not compatible. Are there any other brands that make a pomegranite you would recommend? From what I hear HH and Al Amir both make a pomegranite, I wanted to know if anyone has smoked either of the two.

Thanks for your time.

I have a big bottle of Pomegranite molasses here.. You can find it at most any import food store. I will have to try and mix that with some glycerine and plain tobacco and see how that comes out. Has anyone tried that?

Where can you find vegetable glycrine? the only glycerin i can find comes in very small bottles and is a laxitive. Surely you do not put laxitixe in your mix when making shisha.

Al Amir Pomegranate is flavorless, well at least the 50G size are. Fusion Sweet Pomegranate is very similar to AF Grenadine but Fusion is consistent and very good and AF isn't. Fusion also makes a Sour Pomegranate, but I haven't tried it. Maybe get a 50 G of sweet pom and Sour Pom. and try each to see if you like them and if not mix the rest and see if you like the combo of sour and sweet.

I did end up trying the Layalina pom and it did not do for me what it does for you Liszt. It just didn't hit me. It was ok but not as good to me as AF is. If it had smoked as good as it smelled I would have enjoyed it but the flavor was lacking the sweet balance to the bitter. I enjoy all things pom, and was snacking on seeds that night but it just wasn't for me.

I'm all about the sour pom, I believe sinbad has a flavor and dunk brought it to my attention that fusion makes a sour pom.

When i say the perfect balance of sour and sweet, I actually love the fact it's a lot more sour and bitter than it is sweet. Grenadine was sickingly sweet, so i meant to say "for me it's the perfect balance of sweet and sour"

Thanks for the heads up guys, i'll have to try the other "sour poms" out there and see which i love best.

I beleive I reviewed the fusion sour polm. some time last year. It's ok, but candyish.And it's Fusion so it's 50% stems. Layalina polmagranite is total crap, imo. Red, goopy, flavorless poo.

really abu? Damn, I guess I still can hope Sinbads will produce. And i've had completely different results with the Layalina pom, although it was very red and goopy.

I'm still pretty green, but what do you guys mean when you say that the smoke is sour? Like warhead candy sour?

i still don't think rosetta is made with tobacco! i am convinced it is in fact rubber, water, cologne, and molasses :P

Somewhat, Sinbads makes a seperate "sour" line on some of their popular flavors. So you can get regular and sour Pom. It is sour from what I hear, similar to that warheads effect I imagine.

Tangiers also has a "sour" flavor that I'll be picking up soon.(threade hijacking in progress!)
