Straight up Nakhla Apple seems to have no flavour whatsoever. I suppose I'd like to try a decent unflavoured at some point but that seems to defeat the point.

I have bought Iranian tomeik in Jerusalem every once and a while, but I love Nakhla Zaghloul the best. No preparation and I prefer its great taste.

Personally I think Al Amir is way worse when it comes to that. AW isn't flavorless as much as it is just off the dot, or weird half the time.

Is this an acquired taste? I can't stand the taste of cigarettes, cigars, or pipe tobacco and wouldn't want to smoke it through a hookah. Does it taste different?

Good sir, what do mean by this?

Cigarettes, I can get that, they all taste the same, like crap.

Cigars and pipe tobacco though... That's a WORLD different than cigarettes. The tastes of these types of smoking tobacco is unbelievably different than anything else.

Anyways, the only thing that I would consider close to "smoking a cigar" through the hookah would be Tumbak (the leaves you have to prepare yourself). If you can inhale that stuff, you smoke too many cigs.
The complicated bundle of flavors, like in a cigar, is there, along with the aftertaste.

Desi murli is not like smoking a cigar, it is more like a smoking a pipe. Desi is very sweet and spicy, the tobacco flavor is the best part though. There's really nothing like it on the US market, unless you want to smoke a pipe or buy cigars.

No matter what, hookah tobacco is so much different than other forms of tobacco. But in many aspects, the same.

its not acquired per say but it is not for everyone, especially after you smoke for a little while and get to the point that you want more plain flavors or at least less candy (dont get my wrong i still enjoy some sweet flavors but i like the more natural ones as my go to smokes now). i have tried almost every form of tobacco (except snus and tombeik) and each and every one had a very different taste in what ever form they were used. unflavored shisha has a very specific flavor, a little spicy but a good smoke to try a few times at least.

i started out with nakhla kass super that is pretty good, a little bit more spicy (kinda musky that this and sallom has, but more in kass super). sallom was a bit smoother just harder to pack because it felt like it was glued together cause it had also dried out.

i follow the guide in the hookahlife page that hajo usually puts up, it says 1/4 tsp glycerine and 1/8 tsp molasses to about a small phunnel worth of tobacco.

Nakhla anything is usually good and if it's too dry a little molasses and/glycerin will take care of it.

When it come to naturally flavoured "black" style products i'd say that DM Plain and Hookah-Hookah's Cavendish is nice if you want to cut the flavour of something that is too strong for you (for all you candy smokers out there). Although the old stand bys Zaghloul and Salloum Plain are very nice I prefer DM. I never tried Cleopatra Plain but it's on my list. of things to try.

Oh, if AF Black is ever imported to the U.S then you guys could see what makes for a really great smoke. It's as good as DM Plain but definately different.
