Default Sambuca tasting tobacco?

Ok, so last night was the first time in a loong while when i wasn't with my car so this buddy of mine told me he wanted me to try sambuca which is his favourite. i drank it and i couldn't help thinking of nakhla DA and also told him there's shisha tasting like that, and now he's eager to try. My question however is : what of the following flavours is closest to the sambuca taste? the only 3 that i think would be near it and that i can buy are : nakhla da, nakhla apple and el basha licorice. thanks

While I haven't had El Basha Licorice I would guess that would taste the most like Sambuca seeing the others have apple flavors.

el basha locorice is a great flavor, but because el basha is nakhlas "light" line, I feel the flavor could be a bit stronger.
The anise in tha DA is only one of several great flavors at work in this timeless classic and therefore may not produce a solid,stand alone anise flavor that you may be looking for.
Last time I checked, nakhla apple had no anise flavor.
In my opinion, the best straight anise flavored moassel is AF "ark sous". It's a truely amazing flavor! I've heard however that it is being replaced by the "licorice" flavor in the AF catalogue.It should be noted that tha AF licorice is also very good.I'm comfortable stating that these are the flavors that most resemble the "sambuka" flavor that you and your friend are looking for. good luck.

Argh i know! The caramel is atrocious. However i have had the licorice, and it's very good. You won't be disappointed, i wound up loving it It's just that, a nice black licorice flavor, but not overpowering.

Ark Sous had a faint licorice flavor which I enjoyed as it almost was like a plain taste which grows on you and after smoking many sweet fruity flavors, it's a welcomed change.

Since Sambuka is a licorice liqueur; I'd reccommend either the licorice shisha or ark sous. For added flavor a shot or two of Sambuka in your base really intensifies the flavor.

I personally can't drink Sambuka straight because it's really thick (almost like syrup-like, like jaegermiester) and so I typically just combine it with my favorite energy drink :P

i am smoking the el basha licorice as i'm typing (i appreciate all your other suggestions yet the only tobacco i got access to is nakhla) and i can honestly say it DOES taste a lot like sambuca, yet the flavour isn't as intense as i'd like it. definetly not the bad experience i had with the caramel. i'd give it a 7 or so. it's worth trying if you're after the sambuca flavour, gonna try next week putting some sambuca in the base. thanks again everyone!

Good luck, don't put too much though! I made the mistake of putting too much alcohol and it tasted like I was smoking Jack Daniel's flavored shisha, which wasn't too bad, aside from the fact that it made my hose and base smell like whiskey for days.

You have to be careful though; you absorb alcohol through the lining of your lungs a lot easier than you do by drinking it so you will get buzzed/drunk if you smoke enough. It is dilluted heavily by the water, but still, better to be safe than sorry.

One good thing though is that since alcohol has a significantly low freezing point compared to water, you can substancially cool down the water in your base by adding "super chilled" alcohol to your base. It just has to have been sitting in the freezer for a few hours. But then again, salt water works in the same way and is safer :P

i don't plan on putting more than 50cc's which is just your average shot. my hookah takes about 1.75 litres of water so it should only flavour it a little without getting us drunk.at least in theory
