A decent Orange, very "true" smelling and tasting, but rather light on the taste. It was there, but not nearly as strong as I would have hoped. Still, overall a very nice smoke. Maybe with some OJ in base it will enhance the taste.

Not that I've had a second go at this shisha, I do realize it's a decent mix. True Orange taste w/ Vanilla undertones. Reminds me of something "trying" to be a creamsicile - not quite, but similar.

No dissing to SamB for the original sample - I understand where it came from, but the fresh tub is almost like a different shisha. Very tasty, considering I don't overly enjoy Orange. Dankes.

Starbuzz Marlette Review

Starbuzz Marlette

Shisha Cut: med to fine, light stems. Dark red in color, very drippy.

Hookah Type: 22" Eypg, 27" Syrian

Duration: bwt 50min and 2 hours

Bowl: clay (deep), mod

Foil / Screen: Foil, thick pre-cut sheets

Coal / Amount: 1 Golden QL (33m) whole @ a time, 1 (2") Dyimite Finger @ a time, 2 med chucks of SB natural (with windcover on/off for all 3)

Smoke: thick

Buzz: very slight

Smell / Flavor: Smell was a rich grape, sweet and heavier than most grapes I've smelt. It faintly reminded me of "sparkling grape juice". Taste was excellent - it seriously reminded of me a wine, but with a sweetness to it that counters any of the bitterness wine would have. Very "deep" and rich grape taste.

It was like smoking wine, without the hangover or the bitterness involved w/ real wine consumption. Very rich, deep, but sweet grape taste. If you could make a "wine" candy, this would probably be what it would taste like. It's not quite the same taste as it's "wine" namesake, but still very similar.

Out of all the "grapes" I've tried, this is got to be my favorite. Heck, this shisha even outranks my liking of Irish Cream, X on the Beach and White Peach (which is my absolute favorite SB flavor). I highly recommend!If you want to enhance the taste, add some Merlot or Sangria to the base jar and smoke this! OMG! It rocks!
