I got one of these the other day too. Orange, which is my least favorite artificial flavor of them all. Not even sure what I'll end up doing with this. I have been seriously thinking about going down the hookah road, but I don't think I'd like to start with this.
Incidentally, what makes this so terrible? I mean, does it taste bad, burn bad, gunk up a pipe, etc? What differentiates qualities in moassel?
It's so terrible for exactly the reason you stated above. It tastes like an artificial orange. The flavor is artifical, cloying, and candylike. There's absolutely nothing of interest there for a person with any sort of developed palate.
Perfect for fans of Dunhill 965. A robust English blend with character. Plenty of Latakia, Pressed Virginia and Burley provide the base.
This stuff is moist as hell...if it is like their aro's, it will take months to dry to a proper smoking level.I think most tobacco is at an ok level to smoke out of the tin, but even this is way too moist for me.
It smells like Frog Morton on the Town and they ain't lying about the Latakia. Thing is like 90% Latakia. I'm not kidding. Its like a sea of black tobacco with bits of brown strewn throughout.
