  1. I've smoked a lot of amazing flavors over the years so it's really hard to choose. I can't pick just one off the shelf flavor; I like 'em all!

    But... To answer the question. Years and years ago I inadvertantly came up with a mix that was unlike anything I've ever had. I started out with my medium Phunnel loaded up with Starbuzz Blue Mist. About 5 to 10 minutes into the sesh I just wasn't feeling it, it wasn't hitting the spot. I took the coals off, peeled the foil away, scooped out the blue mist and repacked it full of Tangiers Cocoa. I got it all set up and took my first pull and I couldn't believe what I was tasting; chocolate/cocoa on the inhale, sweet blueberries on the exhale. 

    I've been chasing and dreaming about that flavor for the past 6 years.

  2. The Orange Soda is a bit different than I remember. Back in the day it was 100% straight up orange soda flavor. Now it seems like it's orange soda-ish. The recipe has either changed, I can't get the heat just right, my tastebuds have gone to hell on me, or fuck, all of the above. I use to be able to load my medium Phunnel up, plop three coconaras on top to let it heat up, pull one off after a minute or so and chug away with excellent flavor and smoke. Now when I try that I burn the fuck out of it. It sucks having to re-learn proper heat management.

    Anyway, thanks for the welcome back, guys. It feels good to be back in the fold.


  3. I quit coming around for a lot of reasons. About four and a half years ago I landed a new job. I was working 10 hour days 6 days a week. At the end of the day I found myself just wanting to rest and not do anything else. Time went by and I just stopped doing it. 

    I also stopped coming by the forum because of all the new faces. There was a time in my life where I didn't have a lot of 'real world' friends but I saw a lot of people on here as friends. One by one they quit coming around... some just didn't have time to log on... some quit smoking all together... and some got banned. It was tough logging back in and seeing everybody was gone.

    I took the first week of September off, burned up some vacation days. In the weeks leading up to my vacation I was thinking of things to do and smoking hookah was one of them. So I busted out the KM I bought from Stuie and ordered my favorite flavors. I couldn't find my old medium Phunnel so I had to order a Vortex to make due. Day one of my vacation came and I packed my bowl full of Orange Soda (probably my favorite) and felt all the memories come rushing back... The first time I tried smoking hookah, the first time I dropped a coal on the carpet, the first session I got just right (it was AF rose flavor), to the first time I got a bowl of Tangiers just right... And I realized how much I truly missed it.

    A lot has changed in the almost 4 years since I last smoked. The cut of Tangiers being the biggest shock. Last time I bought some it had thick long cuts of tobacco, and now it's a moderately fine cut. 

    I've been smoking from the hookah I bought from Stuie everyday for just about a month now and I don't ever want to look back. As I'm typing this I'm chugging away on a Pico bowl loaded with Tangiers ololiuqui.

    ANYWAY I apologize if that was tl;dr.

    yes yes yes children, that was me..... i think it was the whole mental factor that hit me after it, then again it may have been the booze lol reguardless never again will that happen lol

    I think it was the beer, Crown Royal, and Frank's Hot Sauce you chugged before drinking the hookah water.

    I'm the biggest beer freak I know. I hate getting invited out to bars only to find out the place has BMC and Corona shit.

    I happen to have a Westvleteren aging in my closet. I brought it back from Brugge last summer.



    Ok. My interest is piqued. Where can I find this stuff here in the States?

    I think a fetching charchuse green to match your icon.

    Also full of win.
  7. Chris pretty much said it all. Only thing I'll add is that if you're worried about Tangiers being "too strong" for you, try the Lucid line first. The Lucid line is a washed version of the Noir line and has less buzz.

    Now, get out there and enjoy what is sure to be the first of many Tangiers experiences!

    *sitting in a corner rocking back and forth*
    *It tastes like grape...there is not ketchup...it tastes like grape...there is no ketchup...*

    Haha seriously though, [b]your golden had a ketchupy taste[/b]? Im certainly going to order more in my next big order, dont make me worry! I do wonder if this just has something to do with how different people percieve flavors differently, it has been discussed before... *goes to the kitchen and smells the ketchup*

    More like [b]rancid[/b] ketchup.
