Default what makes nakhla so hot?

ive noticed this forum is really pro nakhla and when i searched there products i noticed i could have gotten twice the amount if i went with them instead of starbuzz...so i was wondering what makes them so good? the buzz,the flavor,quality?..once i use up my starbuzz and my hookah freak i want to try some different brands and so far i know im going with al fakher.

it's traditional, it's cheap, there are no bad batches, the tobacco is the perfect cut, gives a nice buzz since it's unwashed, and yes....flavor.

[FONT=Verdana]Where I live that is pretty much all you can find. So for about 4.5 years I was smoking the same 6 flavours of Nahkla that could be found here. I am pretty sick of it which is why for almost 2 years now I have been ordering my tobacco online. I still buy Nakhla once in a while, and it is true they are ALWAYS consistent. I have had a few issues with their grape which I find sometimes comes in a different cut and the flavour is not always the same. But Peach, Cherry, Sweet Melon, and Apricot are always the same. Plus really for the price you can’t go wrong.[/FONT]

I agree w/ Mr B.

I have never had a bad session w/ Nakhla. It is always my first choice to smoke when it's that time. All my other tobacco just sits in tupperware while I completely vacuum seal my nakhla lol Flavor is amazing, 250g boxes are cheap, it's not wet and nasty, and it is definitely a gift from the heavens.

Consistency is key for me. Every batch of Nakhla is the same as the last batch.

Nakhla is great and there are a lot of fans here. It is definitely old school, so if you are used to very drippy candyish shisha (read: starbuzz, fantasia, etc) it will be a change for you. It is drier, unwashed, and don't rely on gimmicks (e.g., no sloe gin peach fuzzy navel, chocolate cherry martini, or sex on the beach). I'd suggest that you pick a fruit flavor or two that you think you'll like and read a few reviews.

Nakhla is usually available in local smoke shops. Of course it depends on the shop, but where I am the dudes are shady and will keep that stuff on the shelf forever (I actually found a box the other day dated 2002). I am trying to find a good online source for Nakhla where I can be assured of the freshest product, and also a wide variety of choice.

Good luck

Nakhla is my go to for three main reasons. Consistency, it is always going to be good maybe not the best of that flavor but always good and they don't mess with their mix too much. Price, it is more than $3 cheaper typically than most other tobaccos and it is generally a good value for the money. Availability, it is the one brand that I can go into any store in this area that carries any Shisha tobacco at all and it will be there. Al Fakher is also easy to find not generally as consistent I hear but for some flavors I like to grab them but it costs $3-$4 more so yeah it is rare.

Nakhla is the most popular brand all over the world .... US, Europe, Middle East ... and this is due to its consistency, price, flavor, and overall quality.

I know people who have smoking Nakhla DA for 5 years and they won't replace it with anything else.

Variety

It's good quality semi-traditional tobacco, cheap, consistently good and has wonderful flavors. It is a brand enjoyed by people who like a good buzz. If you don't then take nakhla slowly or don't smoke it. Some of my personal favorite flavors are nakhla. You can get everything from cardamon to margarita. Both of which are wonderful by the way.

Default Re: what makes nakhla so hot?

i wanted to ask the same question, as denali7432.
here in germany, nakhla is known as the worst shisha in the world and no one want to buy it.
i am a nakhla hater, too. i bought 250g of nakhla again some months ago, because i wanted to give it another chance. but when i smoked it, i thought i must puke the next moment. there is not a single flavor i would prefer in comparison with al fakher (kind of cheap, too). i think, i smoked every flavor of nakhla, when i started smoking.
and it doesnt smoke that good, too. so i dont know ...

Pro:
- cheap
- traditional

Contra:
- flavor
- smoke
- buzz
- duration (~ 45mins / AF: 90mins and more)

this is all just my opinion about it! maybe im totally wrong ...
i dont want to offend anyone here, but i cant believe everyone here loves nakhla, when there are great brands like starbuzz or fumari (e.g.) in range.

There's a good chance you'll like Nakhla, for the same reasons stated above.. and get AF in 50 gram packs rather than tubs, so you can save money if any of the flavors you wanted turn out to be bad. Don't want to end up with too much Al-Fail.

I love Nakhla because the taste is more "authentic" then most other brands; although I smoke AF more often because sometimes I don't want to be totally buzzed, as with Nakhla, but mellowed.

Very tempted by the reviews and comments to try Nakhla, but since Im a noob kinda leery about the big buzz. Does it have a pretty high Nicotine content?

it's high because it's unwashed, but it's not bad. just take your time smoking and you'll gradually get used to the higher nicotine.

I said it once and I'll say it again. Everyone's opinion is just that, an opinion. Try for yourself and see. If you want to buy AF, theres a good chance that the vendor will carrry Nakhla too.

Ive smoked romman, fumari, starbuzz, al fahker, tonic, salloum, tangiers, potion and al amir. I have friends over all the time to smoke hookah, but when I smoke by myself it's nakhla or nothing nowadays. Just started getting it recently and i love it all(except earl gray, wth was i thinking).

In fact ima go smoke a bowl of tropicana now.

Dude, you slam that fabulous nectar known as Nakhla Sherazade Earl Grey and then say you're gonna go smoke a bowl of that vile Tropicana?

Point: to each his own. Give it a try and see how you like it. It's a $5 dollar gamble.

I'll try earl grey again.. maybe drink some tea first, to compare, but last time i went 10 minues into the session before i threw away the contents of the bowl cause i just couldnt take it. Guess I'm just not hardcore enough lol
