  1. Key Lime Pie

    [size=2][size=2][b][color="#1C2837"]HookahHookah [/color][color="#00FF00"]Key Lime Pie[/color][/b][/size][color="#00FF00"] [/color][color=#1C2837][b][size=2] [/size][/b][/color] [color=#1C2837][/color][color=#1C2837][b][size=2]Coals:[/size][/b][size=2][size=2] [/size]Pharaoh QL [/size][/color] [b]Cut:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Standard HookahHookah cut: drier than most shisha, thin strips. I actually like this, it's a lot easier and less messy to pack. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Smell:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Strong lime citrus smell [/color][/size][/color] [b]Taste:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] It tastes pretty strongly of citrusy lime, not key lime pie. There isn't a creamy taste that you expect from the pie.[/color][/size][/color] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Buzz:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] None. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Duration:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] About an hour.[/color][/size][/color] [b]Overall satisfaction: [/b][color=#1C2837][size=2]8/10[/size][/color][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837]. It's a pretty good flavor, however margarita is definitely a better lime flavor from HH.[/color][/size][/color][/size]
  2. Honey

    [size=2][size=2][b][color=#1C2837]HookahHookah[/color][color=#FFA500] Honey[/color][/b][/size] [color=#1C2837][b][size=2]Coals:[/size][/b][size=2][size=2] [/size]Pharaoh QL [/size][/color] [b]Cut:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] [/color][/size][/color][/size][size=2][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837]Unlike most HH, this flavor was really wet.[/color][/size][/color] [b]Smell:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Honey and tobacco (duh).[/color][/size][/color] [b]Taste:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] For the most part it tasted like unflavored tobacco. I don't mean the flavor was weak, it was a strong taste, but there was no sweetness of honey. Its hard to describe, because it tastes like honey without being sweet, and honey is pretty much 100% sweetness. I dunno, I'm at a loss for words.[/color][/size][/color][/size] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried.

This is kind of a weird and hard flavor to review. If you want honey, you'll be disappointed. If you enjoy unflavored tobacco, you might be pleasantly surprised.[/size][/color]

I reviewed these two together because I've only smoked them mixed. I think it makes a good mix, the sweetness of the mocha and the nuttiness blend really well to make a dessert coffee taste.[/color][/size][/color][/size]
  4. Guava

[/color][/size][/color] [b]Smell:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Sorta like watermelon[/color][/size][/color] [b]Taste:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Weak watermelon taste, pretty mild.[/color][/size][/color] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried.

I don't know if it has weak flavor or if HH was trying to make a mild flavor. It's really not too bad, it just leaves more to be desired. I'd rather just go for watermelon than this.[/color][/size][/color][color="#1C2837"] [/color][/size]
  5. Fruit Punch

    [size=2][size=2][b][color="#1C2837"]HookahHookah [/color][color="#FF0000"]Fruit Punch[/color][/b][/size] [color=#1C2837][b][size=2] [/size][/b][/color] [color=#1C2837][/color][color=#1C2837][b][size=2]Coals:[/size][/b][size=2][size=2] [/size]Pharaoh QL [/size][/color] [b]Cut:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Standard HookahHookah cut: drier than most shisha, thin strips.

It definitely delivers what you expect, it smells and tastes like fruit punch. That being said, I don't think fruit punch is the best shisha flavor, I prefer citrus flavors.[/color][/size][/color][/size]
  6. Cola

    [size=2][size=2][b][color="#1C2837"]HookahHookah [/color][color="#A0522D"]Cola[/color][/b][/size] [color=#1C2837][b][size=2] [/size][/b][/color] [color=#1C2837][/color][color=#1C2837][b][size=2]Coals:[/size][/b][size=2][size=2] [/size]Pharaoh QL [/size][/color] [b]Cut:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Standard HookahHookah cut: drier than most shisha, thin strips. I actually like this, it's a lot easier and less messy to pack. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Smell:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] It smells pretty bad, it smells a little like cola, but without the sweet smell that coke has. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Taste:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] It's alright, but not as sweet as I'd like. The taste isn't too strong either, but you can mix cherry, lime, lemonade, or vanilla in to get better results. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried.

By itself it's not too good, but it can be mixed with so much that its worth having around.[/color][/size][/color][/size]
  7. Cherry

I use this as a mixer, it goes great with Cola. Who doesn't love cherry coke? [/color][/size][/color] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried.

I wouldn't smoke it on its own, but it makes a great mixer.[/color][/size][/color][color="#1C2837"] [/color][/size]

[/color][/size][/color][color=#1C2837]I was skeptical even trying it, because I don't really like champagne, but this didn't taste like champagne at all. It taste kind of rotten and bitter.[/color] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried.

[/color][/size] [b]Smell:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] Berries [/color][/size] [b]Taste:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] I've never actually eaten blackberries, but the taste is like the smell, and what I imagine blackberries taste like. Its a good, sweet, berry taste. It tastes similar to HH Acai Berry, only without the grape taste.[/color][/size] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried. [/color][/size] [b]Buzz:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] None.

Pretty good, I wish the flavor was a little stronger.[/color][/size][/size][/color]
  10. Acai Berry

I actually like this, it's a lot easier and less messy to pack. [/color][/size] [b]Smell:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] I dont know what an acai berry smells like, but this shisha smells like grape and a bit of some other berry[/color][/size] [b]Taste:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] I also don't know what an acai berry tastes like, but this shisha tastes the same as it smells, like sweet grape and a hint of tart berry. In my opinion, its a better grape flavor than HH grape. [/color][/size] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried. [/color][/size] [b]Buzz:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] None. [/color][/size] [b]Duration:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] About an hour.[/color][/size] [b]Overall satisfaction: [/b][color=#1C2837][size=2]8/10[/size][/color][size=2][color=#1C2837]. Good enough to be in my usual rotation, as long as you're not looking for a buzz you'll be satisfied. [/color][/size][/size][/color]
  11. Margarita

If you haven't had a margarita, you could probably compare the taste to Sprite. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried. [/color][/size][/color] [b]Buzz:[/b][size="2"][color="#1C2837"] A slight light headed feeling. For some reason this is the only HH shisha that's given me a buzz.[/color][/size] [b]Duration:[/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837] About an hour.[/color][/size][/color] [b]Overall satisfaction: [/b][color=#1C2837][size=2][size=2]9/10[/size][/size][/color][color=#1C2837][size=2][color=#1C2837]. This is tied with lemonade for my favorite HH flavor. The taste is good, I get a little buzz, and its nice and cheap.[/color][/size][/color]
  12. Grape

[/color][/size] [b]Smell:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] Strong smell of grape soda.[/color][/size] [b]Taste:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] A real letdown, just hint of grape taste. [/color][/size] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried. [/color][/size] [b]Buzz:[/b][size=2][color=#1C2837] None.

The lack of buzz and poor flavor make it a waste of time. I was really disappointed, when I smelled it I thought it would taste like grape soda, instead there was hardly any taste. [/color][/size][/size][/color]
  13. Lemonaide

[/color][/size] [b]Smell:[/b][size="2"][color=#1C2837] Definitely lemon [/color][/size] [b]Taste:[/b][size="2"][color=#1C2837] A nice cool, smooth lemon taste.

[/color][/size] [b]Smoke Thickness:[/b][size="2"][color=#1C2837] Decent, but nothing special, I find HookahHookah smoke to be thinner than other brands I've tried. [/color][/size] [b]Buzz:[/b][size="2"][color=#1C2837] None.

It's not perfect, but definitely worth grabbing 50g of, especially for the price, this stuff is super cheap.[/color][/size]
  14. I use pharaoh quicklights, I can't use natural coals because I don't have a stove at my dorm. I've found two coals burn it, and one doesn't heat it enough, so I tried 1 and half tonight, and its the best results I've had so far, but still not much flavor. From what you've said I'm guessing my problem is airflow. I know the hookah has no leaks, so I think your tip about poking holes all the way to the bottom is gonna be my solution. Thanks a bunch, I'll test it out next time I smoke, probably tommorow.
  15. Hey guys, I'm having trouble getting good flavor from Fantasia out of my new vortex bowl. It either doesn't generate a lot of smoke or it burns on top and stays moist on the bottom. Either way, I'm not satisfied with the flavor at all. I've tried packing it low to avoid burning it, but then it takes a lot of heat to get going. Any tips?
