I would be afraid to try it, I mean, you use that in a few middle eastern chicken dishes, and in coffee, but to smoke....I dont know, I think I'd rather tongue punch the dirty star hole.

I'm a huge fan of Nakhla, but honestly it tastes like Soap. Get Al Fakher Cardoman

Nakhla Sheherazade Cardamom is great. It has a spicy ginger mint kinda flavor to it. It's awesome by itself and great mixed with peach.

it's one of those flavors you either like or you don't. I didn't like it at first but it definitely grew on me.

I have a box thats been sitting on my table for well, months.. the best i can describe it is a mixture of menthol and buckleys.. just the smell of it makes u cringe..
that being said, a few months back, when i totally ran out of shisha except for this, i started smoking it, and yes, it is an acquired taste.. leaves the back of your throat very cool, it has flavour (not harsh), but at first glance, it definately can put you off.. especially if you prefer the sweet fruit shisha

It is a nice change of pace .. and definitely acquired. I am a firm believer that you never know what you might like until you try it.

That is why I HOPE someday people here start to give double apple a shot and can share in the delightfulness of this flavor with some of the other hookah connoisseurs!

I was curious about this flavor and I bought 50g of it last month.

Personally, I think it is good to try something different but it is not a usual smoke for sure. I mean the flavor is sooooo strong ... you might not be able to handle it.

Again, nothing to lose, just spend few bucks and try it.

If you find that the flavor is too strong, let it acclimate for like 4 hours. When it comes fresh from the pack it smells like Vicks Vap-O-Rub. It's an insanely strong flavor. I acclimate enough for a bowl a few hours before my session and it's great.

I had this a while back. It's very strong, and if it's not your thing then you won't be able to smoke it, just like Earl Grey. The "soapiness" is cured by letting it sit open in the air, like Dunk said, but if you have a delicate palate than you will most likely pick it up the whole time.

Al Falkher has a much more toned down Cardamom flavor, the minty feel is still there, but the ginger is sweeter like that of Ginger Ale.

In the Middle East we put cardamon ("hel") in Turkish coffee. I rarely drinkcoffee but when I do I add cardamon. The Nakhla cardamon is super strong like an atomic bomb overkill. Too strong a cardamon taste for me.

if you want to try a mild cardamom, Al Fakher makes one that is much less powerful tasting than the nakhla.
