2-Hose Engineer Hookah Review

Pipe: Engineer 2-hose auto-seal hookah (Syrian) in Blue and Gold
Hose: 2 wide style hoses
Bowl: Tiny brown glazed (replaced w/ larger)

Recently purchased this hookah and already smoked it twice. Stem is seperatable, solid and heavy. Screw together airtight. Gold in color - possibly brass (?).

Pros: Nice very looking pipe. Heavy durable stem, can be screwed apart for cleaning, storage/transport, and reassembles into 2 different sizes. Easy to draw, hoses are wider than normal. Base is large enough for the hookah (although I have a larger version). Ashtray can sit on top (smaller stem size) or be placed bwt sections, very stable. Auto seal system work very well - no need to cap other hose. Head/stem top is Egyptian style, not true Syrian style. Glass base well made, nicely decorated and thickness was good.

Cons: The auto seal system works, a little too well. To use the smoke release valve, I had to remove one ball bearing from the set-up (On hose I was using, left non-used hose & valve alone). Hoses had plastic smell - unsure if washable, but washed with HOT lemon juice to remove smell. Base jar smaller than my Large Egyptian Hookah's jar, but does have enough space for ample smoke. Bowl was small - 5-10g, but I have several so it wasn't an issue. Hookah does rock slightly when drawing thru hose (may have been because on carpet). Also, stem is slightly different than one pictured, but very close. Assembled, hookah sits at 29" instead of 30"

In all, a very nice hookah if you're interested in a 2-hose Syrian hookah. Hookah came with: 3 rolls of coal, tongs, 2 hoses, bowl, metal screen, grommet (3 hose, 1 bowl, 1 base), carrying bag and BONUS combo bowl.

Smokes very well and a great looking "room decoration" when not in use. Recommend.

Purchased thru Nazar Hookah.

Orders in!

I was highly surprised as my Hookah Company order arrived today (July 1st - Sat), but very happy. Everything was there and I had a bonus tub of shisha - Al Amir Mocha Latte. Sounds good, but I've never had a good smoke with Al Amir - we'll see. Trance should like this flavor - he's into coffee flavors.

Got the Engineer hookah yesterday, I must say I'm loving it. There was some issues, but after messing around, I figured everything out and got him smoking. Wanna see a video?

Smoking Fusion Mango Raspberry in Engineer Hookah

So far everything seems to be doing well and I'm loving my new hookah! Thanks so much Mahir, owner of Nazar Hookah! I highly recommend him for your hookah needs!

Fusion Mango Raspberry Review

Brand and Flavor: Fusion Mango Raspberry

Shisha Cut: Medium, flaky. Some stems, small & thin. Red in color and very wet.

Hookah Type: Syrian, 2-hose Engineer

Duration: 2 hr

Bowl: Mod Combo

Foil / Screen: Screen

Coal / Amount: 4 total, Golden (33mm)

Smoke: Thick

Buzz: Slight to mild

Smell / Flavor: Smell was sweet raspberry with a touch of something else, I have to assume the Mango. Very pleasant. Taste - I mostly could taste the Raspberry, but every once and awhile, would pull a distinct Mango taste. Nice and juicy, sweet but not overly so.

Rating (1 to 10): 9

I bought Fusion because I wanted some different flavors than AF currently offered. This one (Mango Raspberry) is a very pleasant surprise. Nice fruity taste and smell (not overly sweet - true fruit taste), good smoke and only a slight buzz (don't chimney it). Handles heat well, even after the 1st hour and it had burnt to the metal screen I was using, I just scrapped off the burnt stuff, put on a new coal and went for another 45min.

Highly recommend!


Yeah - my Hookah is here!

Came home yesterday to a notice in the mail that my Hookah is sitting in the Post! Dammn! Well, I get to pick it up today after work - I can't freaking wait!

Spent almost an hour showing and explaining what a "hookah" was to several fellows at work - they understand now I've shown them a picture of what I was talking about, but at first they had the typical reaction to hearing the word - HOOKAH. I wish that people would get the idea that it's a drug related item OUT OF THEIR HEADS! *sigh*

Since I also have a shisha order coming (hopefully tomorrow according the the web site) I needed to pick up some more containers and shuffle around some things. Word of advice - DO NOT BUY DOLLAR STORE TUBS! They aren't air-tight... 3 different shisha were getting dried out - I went to Wallie and picked up some Zip Lock brand ones, much better!

On the game front - finally picked up a copy of God of War 2! Got it used for 35$ - not too bad! Now I have an excuse to turn my PS2 back on, it hasn't been used since Feb, give or take. I really need to finish Okami - I love that game!

Well, tonight I get to enjoy the new hookah, play some video games, and maybe go bowling - we bought 4 used balls (for $17 - 3 included bags)! I need to get one filled & redrilled, the finger/thumb holes are too small, but I'm happy overall!


Last call for Shisha!

Today, my bad little fingers lead me back to Hookah Company and finally got a shisha order in!
  • 250g Al Fakher Coconut
  • 50g Al Fakher Mint (they where out of 250g tubs)
  • 250g Layalina Peach
  • 250g Fusion Mango Raspberry
  • 250g Fusion Chocolate Strawberry

Grand total w/ discount and shipping = $57

Not too bad, although in the last 2 days I've spent nearly $177 in hookah related items. This is "last Call" for hookah for the next 4-6 month! Unless I run out of coals, break something, or need a staple shisha, no more!

I have several high dollar items I need to work towards: a car, a wedding, a new mattress...

Life's little things, you know?

But it's all good... I made a list of the stuff I have at home... OMG, I have enough to stock a small army with tobacco for several weeks. Too bad I don't know more "Hookah Lovers"....

Both my MySpace group and Yahoo group are still empty and unloved. Other than a few friends - nobody I know smokes Hookahs! *big sigh*

Oh well, more reviews when everything gets in and enjoyed!


New Hookah

Today I placed my order with Nazarhookah to purchase a new hookah - Engineer Double Hose Hookah in Blue and Gold. Along with a box of coals, shipping and discount, everything ran me about $122. Very nice! I've been talking with the owner, Mahir, for a bit about getting this and finally had the funds to jump for it! Thanks so much Mahir!

I am SO PUMPED! :)

I want to order some more shisha too, but kinda low on funds until the PayPal gets transffered into my bank account. I sold my old cell on Ebay - I got my upgrade last week. Made a nice penny - it was enough to allow me to get my hookah in confort instead of pinching the purse strings.

My next order will probably be more AF flavors: Strawberry, Coconut and Mint. I also want some Layalina Peach - it's been awhile since I've had an good peach and I miss it so. Also *crosses finges* may have bought some Starbuzz Chocolate Mint from a Forum member and another Pro member said he's send me a sample of "X On The Beach". I think I'm gonna send him some Kashmir Peach (which I can't smoke due to it's strength and I puke) becasue he's never had any. It's nice to have friends in smoky places ;}

More when the order comes in.... now it's the hardest part...waiting!


Hookah-Hookah Mocha Review

Hookah-Hookah Mocha

Shisha Cut: fine, no stems. Wet, not drippy - damp.

Hookah Type: 27" Syrain, 17" Modern

Duration: bwt 30-55 min

Bowl: standard

Foil / Screen: foil

Coal / Amount: (2) Japan ST

Smoke: med to thick

Buzz: none

Smell / Flavor: Smelt like strong black coffee. Tasted just the same, no sweetness there. Kinda strong (but less than Al Fakher Capp).

Rating (1 to 10): 7

If you like strong, non-sweet shisha, this is one of them. Good taste, strong. I didn't like it as much as my BF did, but it was less harsh than AF's Capp. Too much heat burns it and gives nasty aftertaste.


Starbuzz Irish Cream Review

Starbuzz Irish Cream

Shisha Cut: med to fine, stems. Wet but not overly drippy.

Hookah Type: 17" Modern

Duration: 2 hours

Bowl: standard

Foil / Screen: foil

Coal / Amount: (2) Japan ST then 1 Natural Lemon wood chunk

Smoke: thick

Buzz: mild to heavy, leaning more toward mild

Smell / Flavor: Smelt odd, like vanilla cream. Reminded me of Smiley’s Wedding Cake. Tasted sweet and vanillish, creamy and interesting, slight hint of coffee. Not sure how close to Irish Cream it was (don’t drink that flavor of coffee), but it was nice.

Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm06yPmHf1s

Rating (1 to 10): 7

Considering this was my first Starbuzz, it wasn’t too bad. Expected better cut of shisha: a lot of stems. Good smoke, got a cloud on my 2nd drag. Good taste, lasted until the second round of coal(s) burnt out – only got “burned” tasting when left the windcover on too long. Good smoke, but for the Price, I’ll stick with other brands of shisha. Recommended, except for the price.


Layalina Peach & Vanilla Reviews

Layalina Peach

Shisha Cut: med, few stems. Dark red in color, drippy.

Hookah Type: 33" Eypgtian, 27" Syrain

Duration: 1hr - 1hr 30min

Bowl: standard

Foil / Screen: foil

Coal / Amount: 4 silver tabs (2 @ a time), 1 extra large chunk of Lemon Wood

Smoke: Med to thick

Buzz: slight

Smell / Flavor: Faintly Peachy smelling. Taste: not a super strong peach, but you can tell it is peach. Sweet, rather than like true fruit. Long lasting.

Rating (1 to 10): 7

The taste is alittle weak, but it's still a good peach. Not quite as strong as Romman Peach (in my view), but a real good mixer to other shisha. Goes well with Strawberry, Mint, Lemon and Vanilla.


Layalina Vanilla

Shisha Cut: med, few stems. Black in color, drippy.

Hookah Type: 27" Syrain

Duration: 1hr

Bowl: smiley

Foil / Screen: glass for first 25 min, foil for remainder

Coal / Amount: 1 silver tab w/ glass, 2-3 for foil

Smoke: med to thick

Buzz: slight

Smell / Flavor: Creamy vanilla scent. Taste was less vanilla (vanilla bean) than I expected, was "sweet" like a piece of candy (french vanilla).

Rating (1 to 10): 7

I tend to like my Vanillas more like a Vanilla Bean than French Vanilla - less creamy, more tart. Was still a good vanilla - mixes well with just about anything. Adds some creaminess and sweetiness, even to Nahkla. Good to keep around for "mixing", but not as a stand-alone smoke.


Hookah Video

I finally got around to making a "How to set-up a hookah" video and posting it on YouTube - it sucks! Lighting is bad and it's grainy. Will try again next sunny day!


I'm aiming for better and more soon!


Al Fahker Golden Eskandarani Apple Review

Al Fahker Golden Eskandarani Apple

Shisha Cut: med to fine, little to no stems. Light brown in color. Very drippy.

Hookah Type: 27" Syrain

Duration: 2 hours +

Bowl: Smiley

Foil / Screen: foil

Coal / Amount: 4 total Japan ST, 2 @ a time

Smoke: thick

Buzz: light to mild

Smell / Flavor: Smell was nice tart green apple. I'm not the fan of Apple shisha, but this smelt great and was missing the typical anise (liquorish) smell. Taste was a little on the light side, but very good. Slightly sour on the exhale. Mild and tasty - even took a slight burning well (recovered fast - moved coal).

Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mi-89xYuuI

Rating (1 to 10): 10

I typically don't like apple that much, but this is a nice version. A little light on the taste, it was still very enjoyable and extremely long lasting. 2 hours later and I still have taste, thick smoke, and no burnt smell/taste.

This is One of my Staple Flavors. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants an apple without the anise flavor.


Bases Mixes - Cherry and Strawberry/Kiwi

At Walmart, I noticed these containers of Sno Cone syrup, in various different flavors. Well after reading a thread on a forum board, I decided to give mixing it into the base water a try and see if it enhances the taste of the smoke any.

Basically the syrup is very similar to another item found online called HookahJuice, which is flavored liquid you add to the base water to flavor the smoke. Sounds cool, but it's pricey for what it is.

Sno Cone Syrup isn't... $1.87 per 20oz bottle. Not bad. Picked up Strawberry/Kiwi, Sour Apple and Cherry Vanilla.

First try was Cherry Vanilla with Cherry Nahkla. Used about 2.5-3 oz of the stuff. Packed the Smiley, used 4 (2 @ a time) Sultan tabs.... and Low, the Shisha is Saved! That medicine taste is almost gone and replaced with a sweet candy flavor. I now LOVE this cherry shisha!

On Saturday, I set up and tried the Strawberry/Kiwi one with Al Waha Kiwi. Again, used 2.5-3 oz in the base, used the Smiley bowl, same amount & type of coals. It gave it stronger Kiwi taste w/ sweeter aftertaste - not quite strawberry tasting, but sweeter (like candy sweet). Not bad at all.

I've ordered a new tub of Al Fakher Golden Esk Apple (250g $9.95) from Al Fakher's new Online site. Ran less than $15 with USPS shipping. Not bad at all, cheaper than any of the other sites even with the discount codes. Hopefully it will be as good as the reviews from the boards - I ordered it for Trance more than myself. Why? It's supposed to taste like sour apple, so mixed with the Sour Apple Syrup = he should like! :)


Layalina Strawberry Review

Layalina Strawberry

Shisha Cut: med, some stems. Dark red in color. Drippy.
Hookah Type: 27" syrain
Duration: 1 hr
Bowl: standard
Foil / Screen: foil
Coal / Amount: 4 silver tabs, 2 @ a time
Smoke: med to thick
Buzz: light
Smell / Flavor: Sweet smelling, you can tell it's strawberry. Taste: sweet almost candy like strawberry.

Rating (1 to 10): 8

This is one of my favorite strawberries. I don't often smoke it alone, but often mix it with Kiwi, Vanilla, Mint, or Peach. Nice and sweet, not overpowering - with too much heat it fades out, but remove some coals and it comes back. Even better when used with Strawberry juice or liquoir in base.

Coal Reviews

Romman Lemon Wood Coals (bulk natural coals - wood)

PROS: No smell, no taste. Price is good at less than $7 a bag.

CONS: Needs stove/grill/propane torch to light. Random small pieces. Ashes ALOT. Messy. Tends to break/shatter easily.


There are MUCH better natural wood coals on the market - stay away from these, too many issues for the small amount of good they offer. Try a "finger" version of coals, but these work if you got nothing else.

Smiley's CocoShell Coals (bulk compressed ground coconut shell)

PROS: Soild, doesn't break easy. Clean to handle. No smell. No taste. Price is very good at less than $7 a bag. Can be reusable. BURNS VERY HOT!

CONS: Random sized pieces. Ashes a bit, very fine dust. Needs stove/grill/propane torch to light.


Highly recommend these coals. Other than Japan sticks, these are all I use anymore. One small word of caution: if dousing them in water - REMOVE THEM FROM THE WATER AFTERWARDS. They'll break down in to a pile of brown mush and go to waste.

Sultan Japanese Silver tabs (silver coated coals - stick, breaks into 4 smaller pieces)

PROS: Clean to handle, easier to light than natural coals. Light amount of ash. Rarely ever breaks. No taste/smell providing you cook off silver coating before use.

CONS: Can be hard to light - not quicklites. Less heat than standard QL rounds. Needs to be cooked before using. Can be pricey (local shops sell 12 sticks [48 pieces] for $5.95).


Since I can buy these locally, I use them alot. I don't know how they compair to other Silver tabs, but they work great for me. No taste, good length of time for use, good heat.

Nahka Cocomint Review

Nahka Cocomint

Shisha Cut: med, some stems, dry. Little brown in color.
Hookah Type: 30” & 27” Syrains
Duration: 55min up to 2 hours
Bowl: standard or smiley
Foil / Screen: foil (with both), glass with smiley (to start, often switch to foil later)
Coal / Amount: 4 silver tabs (2 @ a time) or chunks of coco shell
Smoke: med to thick
Buzz: med to heavy

Smell / Flavor: Smells strongly of mint, the chocolate is overpowered by the mint, Taste: very good, more mint than chocolate, but it’s defiantly there.

Rating (1 to 10): 7

Alittle strong on the mint side, this is a nice shisha. Careful, it does pack a buzz and can get strong (watch the heat). Very good as a dinner or dessert shisha.

If you want more chocolate taste, add some chocolate syrup to the base. Or try Al Waha's After Nine (different buzz, but easier to smoke).

Also tastes good mixed with alittle sweet strawberry shisha (Layalina or Rommans).

Al Waha Coconut Review

Al Waha Coconut

Set-up: 27" Syrian
Bowl: standard mod w/ foil
Base: Iced water
Hose: MYA washable
Coal: (3) Japanese Silver tabs, broken in half

Cut: Med cut, some stems. Good amount of juice.
Smell: Strong coconut smell.
Taste: It does taste like coconut. Out of all the brands I’ve tried, this one does offer one of the better bangs. Could be stronger, but good enough to taste.

Smoke: Medium
Buzz: Light to Med, typical “sleepy” Al Waha buzz.
Time: about 1hr 25min

Score: 7/10

One of the better Coconuts I’ve had to date. Good smoke, good taste (lasting), but could have been better on both issues. Of the non-fruit flavors I like, this is one of my Top 10.

Alternate Base Mix:
Killer Whale: 4 oz Whaler’s Killer Coconut Rum. Add to chilled water and ice. Added more coconut flavor and enhances the buzz.

Layalina Coconut Review

Layalina Coconut

Set-up: 30" Syrian
Bowl: smiley w/ foil
Base: Iced base and cold water
Hose: mod hose
Coal: 1.5 (33m) 3 King or 2 silver tabs (2 @ a time, 4 max)

Cut: Med cut, some stems. Typical Layalina juiciness – dripping.
Smell: Sweet Coconut.
Taste: Sweet coconut, not the strongest coconut taste, but better than Havana. Lasted the whole bowl, never got burnt tasting. Stronger than Al Waha’s version, without the buzz.

Smoke: Medium
Buzz: mild
Time: 50min to 1hr 25min

Score: 8/10

Layalina is one of my favorite daily smokes. Super sweet, very flavorful, long lasting. This was a good coconut, not as strong as Al Waha’s, but defiantly stronger than Havana. Only got a slight buzz, but didn’t give it much heat. With more heat, you should get more smoke & buzz. Should mix well with other flavors, such as chocolate, pineapple, or orange.

Tangier's Noir Style Reviews - Kashmir Peach, Kiwi, Vanilla, and Juicy Peach

Tangier’s Kashmir Peach

Shisha Cut: typical Tang cut, drippy. Black in color.
Hookah Type: 27" & 30" Syrian
Duration: 1hr 30min to 2+ hrs
Bowl: phunnel w/ mod
Foil / Screen: foil (many, MANY holes)
Coal / Amount: 3-4 silver tabs, 2 large chunks coco shell
Smoke: med
Buzz: mild to heavy
Smell / Flavor: Spicy peach smell and spiced peach taste. The peach was alittle understated, it could have been stronger, but it was a nice mellow smoke (for Tangiers).

Rating (1 to 10): 9

I don't smoke Tangier's hard (I wish I could) but out of the 4 flavors I've tried, this was the easiest and smoothest so far. Nice relaxing taste/smell, could get harsh - but that was more me than the shisha (I believe). Most defiantly will buy again.

Tangier’s Vanilla

Shisha Cut: typical tangiers, drippy, black in color.
Hookah Type: 27" syrian
Duration: 1hr +/-
Bowl: phunnel
Foil / Screen: foil (holes!!!!!!)
Coal / Amount: 3-4 silver tabs
Smoke: med to thick
Buzz: heavy
Smell / Flavor: Strong vanilla scent, slight undercurrent of something smoky. Taste was creamy vanilla, with an undercurrent of hickory. Not a overall bad taste, but slightly odd.

~ Taste changes ALOT with acclimation - min of 4 hours. ~

Rating (1 to 10): 7

The smell is good, but the slight hickory taste is strange. Not bad, as vanillas go, but could be better. Mixed with other Tangier flavors, it tends to mellow them out. For more vanilla flavor, add vanilla extract to the base.

Tangier’s Juicy Peach

Shisha Cut: typical Tangiers, drippy and black in color
Hookah Type: 30" Syrian
Duration: 55 min
Bowl: phunnel w/ mod
Foil / Screen: foil (again w/ the holes)
Coal / Amount: 3-4 silver tabs
Smoke: med to thick
Buzz: A$$ kicking
Smell / Flavor: Peachy with undercurrent of Pear. Taste is Peach mixed with Pears, with a hint of something I couldn't put my finger on. (New sample was defiantly more Peach, but the Pear taste was still there).

Rating (1 to 10): 7

Once I got a new sample, I was more impressed with this flavor. It's peach mixed with some pear, instead of just Pears. Had an undercurrent of something I couldn't figure out, but that may be the Tangier's tobacco. Was a nice mellow smoke - watch the heat. Just alittle too much had me coughing up a storm.

Tangier’s Kiwi

Shisha Cut: typical tangiers, drippy, black in color
Hookah Type: 17" modern
Duration: 1hr +/-
Bowl: phunnel w/ mod
Foil / Screen: foil
Coal / Amount: 3-4 silver tabs
Smoke: med to thick
Smell / Flavor: Sweet fruit - kiwi! Taste, I have to assume this is what a kiwi tastes like, but it's sweet fruitiness. Yummie - mouth watering.

Rating (1 to 10): 9

One of my favorite Tangiers flavors (before I had KP), mixes well with strawberry (Layalina). Doesn't sting me like most of the other Tangier flavors, I can smoke this one pretty well.

Nahkla Cherry Review

Nahkla Cherry (rehashed and revamped)

Shisha Cut: med cut, dry-ish. Red in color and some stems. Sticky.

Hookah Type: 30" Syrian (1st) , 27" Syrian (2nd)

Duration: 45min (1st) 1hr 35min (2nd)

Bowl: standard modern (1st), smiley (2nd)

Foil / Screen: foil (both)

Coal / Amount: 2 silver tabs (1st), 4 silver tabs 2 @ a time (2nd)

Smoke: med to thick

Buzz: light to mild

Smell: Smelt like those candy-like cherry cough drops. Had a faint chemical/medicine smell to it.

Taste: Cherry cough drops, with a strange undercurrent of mediciny taste that seemed to coat my tongue.

Base Mix: On second go, added 2.5oz of Sno Cone Cherry Vanilla syurp to the base water.

Rating (1 to 10): 4 - by itself, 7 - mixed with syrup

Orginialy I was disappointed by this shisha - I expected more real cherry taste and less "cough drop" candy taste. Due to the unexpected weridness, I cut short my session and kinda gave up.

But, due to the sugesstion of others, I bought some "Cherry Vanilla" sno cone syurp. Added to the base water - chilled, repacked the shisha in a different bowl (I love Smiley's bowl for dry shisha) and tried again. DAMN! 100% improvement on the taste - it still has a fant undercurrent of the cough drop deal, but now alot for "cherry candy".

My suggestion - if you don't like the cough drop taste, pick upsome of this syurp (or some other cherry flavored one) and add to the base water. It should enhance the taste considerbly.


Al Fahker Cappuccino Review

Al Fahker Cappuccino

Shisha Cut: med to fine, little stems. Wet, but not drippy.

Hookah Type: 33" Egyptian, 30" Syrian

Duration: 45-50min +/-10 min (1/2 shisha not burnt - could have gone longer)

Bowl: smiley

Foil / Screen: glass for 15 min, foil for remaining of the time (both sessions)

Coal / Amount: 2-3 silver tabs or 2 chucks of cocoshell coals

Smoke: med to thick

Buzz: slight

Smell / Flavor: STRONG coffee smell, almost like an espresso than a Cappuccino. Taste was STRONG - way too strong for my tastes, like smoking coffee beans. Had a strange aftertaste upon exhale that kinda reminded me of... fish. Trance did not notice this aftertaste, he LOVES it.

Rating (1 to 10): me = 3, Trance = 8

I tend to like sweet shisha, Trance likes strong bold non-sweet shisha. This was bought for him, and I'm glad he likes it - I don't! Too strong, too overpowering. We tried some milk, no help. Next time I will add some vanilla extract or maybe some vanilla shisha, see if that smooths it out some. Very strong flavored shisha.


Order Up!

Got my Hookah Company order in today! Sweet! Everything got opened and repacked, then I loaded some AF Capp in Old E for a smoke. Old E (33" Egyptian) is officially retired now - he ruined a perfectly good smoke. :P But that's ok, it gave me an excuse to get out Opal (17" Chinese) and try the Layalina Magonsteen - that's good shisha. Most defiantly have to order a tub of that flavor. Layalina is quickly becoming one of my favorite shishas - always delivers a good smoke.

The Kashmire Peach is sitting out getting ready for tomorrow, although I am getting low on silver tabs. Dang it all, always running out of something. Made a posted a vid on my Photobucket.

Layailina Magosteen Review

Layailina Magonsteen

Shisha Cut: med cut, light stems. drippy and red in color

Hookah Type: 17" modern (Opal)

Duration: 45min then I stopped (only 1/2 was burnt)

Bowl: standard type, oversized

Foil / Screen: pre cut foil

Coal / Amount: 3 silver tabs

Smoke: med to thick

Buzz: medium

Smell / Flavor: strange, but sweet and good. Mixed fruit w/ peachy undertones and something like a pear thrown in there as well. Tasted just like it smelt.

Rating (1 to 10): 9

I was very happily surprised with this. I love Layalina and so far each one keeps getting better and better. This one was sweet and fruity, a real good dessert shisha. Was forgiving with the heat, but make sure to give it some or no smoke for you.
