Default Something is wrong

So i made a big order not to long ago and most of the shisha i got i have been enjoying. One of the things i really excited about was the nakhla mint. Here is the problem, i opened it up and gave it a quick smell and there was no hint of mint at all so i thought weird well i give it a smoke and see how it is. There was not mint taste to it either but it did have slight mint feel to it. Overall it was more like the grass outside on the ground then it was mint. Now i am not a nakhla hater, its probably my favorite brand the chocomint i got in the same order is amazing. So i was wondering if anyone else has had this problem before?

Nakhla mint is not an overly sweet or overpowering mint like Al Fakher is. Salloum is similar. You might try the Nakhla Mizo mint.

I do remember it distinctly not as just a menthol flavor though. KwiKwi is right, it wont be super sweet at all, but there should still be a mint taste.

Nakhla Mizo Mint is STRONG! I couldn't even smoke it alone ... about froze my mouth!

AF Mint is the best mint! Yeah you can call me a AF Fan, when their shyt is fuked up .. but their mint is still the best!

Nakhla Mizo Mint is stellar. Sambooka is a wussy.

dunk, you're a big Nakhla guy, what's going on Jrunner's situation. Can you help? I've been thinking of trying Nkahla mint bc of what you and AR have said. Should I stick to Mizo?

I have a package of 50g Nakhla mint and it is good. So far I have smoked it as a 60% 40% with lemonade serenade with the lemon being the 60 and the mint being the 40 and it was nice. Though I felt that I could probably smoke the mint by itself it definitely had the mint feeling and flavor.

I have never had a new pack of Nakhla Mint. I was given a sample awhile back, it was originally a 50 G. It was drier than most Nakhla I get, but it was a nice natural mint taste. Not sweet. Mizo is like Nakhla Mint but more powerful.

i think it must be a bad little batch or something cause like i said not even the smell of mint going on, i let my friend smell it and asked what he thought it was, and said no clue but it smell like "bad words".

I can only imagine but it would be like a couple of chunks of clumped semi moist run of the mill nakhla, lol, did you get it to smoke well?
