This was a decent smell/taste, but it was alittle heat senative and the flavor died out toward the end rather suddenly. Good smoke, but not one I'll keep in stock.

Smell / Flavor: Smell was a sweetish strawberry jam, very yummie and mouthwatering. Taste, was a different story. Had a strange undercurrent taste of something I couldn't place my finger on... was a semi-sweet strawberry, but the other taste over-powered the flavor.

I was disappointed in this flavor, the strange taste this shisha had overpowered the strawberry totally and destroyed what should have been a good smoke. Plus it left the tip of my tongue tingly and feeling like it was coated. Smoked this twice, out of 2 hookahs to make sure it wasn't just a dirty hookah/hose.My BF loves this flavor, more than any of the other Rosetta's... he says the taste I'm picking up is a "Clove cigg" taste - I didn't like it.

Sahara Banana and Milk Review

Sahara Banana and Milk

Shisha Cut: med to coarse cut, some stems. Dark red and drippy (gives Layalina a run for it's money). Over time, it does dry out and ends up looking like Nahkla.

Hookah Type: 22" Eygptian

Duration: 55min - 1hr 25min (see below for new max time)

Bowl: Eygptian Clay

Foil / Screen: Foil w/ windcover

Coal / Amount
: 2.5" Exotica

Smoke: thick

Buzz: med to heavy, depending on smoking habits. Similar to Al Waha Buzz.

Smell / Flavor: Smell is a Laffy Taffy Banana Candy. Taste is slightly weaker than the smell, but it's a sweet candish creamy banana - in no way is it a realistic banana. First 20-30min of the bowl, it did have a faint undercurrent of a floral taste, but wasn't distracting from the main taste. After 30min, it wasn't noticeable.

I love this stuff. The smell made me want to eat it, the taste, although not as strong as the smell, was highly pleasant and long lasting. The faint floral start was interesting, but not distracting - sorta like a bonus.

It probably would mix well with strawberry, maybe coconut and pineapple as well. I will try adding Coconut Milk to the base next time to see how that goes.

And after lighting a 2nd 2" chunk of Exotica coal, I managed to coax the bowl for a grand total of 2hr 10min before I started getting a burnt taste. Up to that point, the smoke/buzz/taste was strong and pleasant.

Bowl: standard clay

Foil / Screen: foil

Coal / Amount: (2) 1-1.5 Dy Finger coals

Smoke: thick

Buzz: none to notice

Smell / Flavor: Smell was cherryish with a slight cough drop undertone (medicine like). Not as sharp as Nakhla Cherry. Taste was a slightly sweet cherry, with a faint cough drop/cough syurp taste, although not overly strong like Nakhla's cherry.

Rating (1 to 10): 7.5-8

One of the smoother cherries I've smoked, only has a slight medicine taste/smell to it. Smooth, mellow, relaxing smoke even if not an overly realistic cherry. Seems to be more forgiving to heat than the Peach version. Should mix well, try vanilla or other fruits.


Rosetta Peach Passion Review

Rosetta Peach Passion

(this is a new brand of shisha on the market, from the makers of Dajruim ciggys - cloves for those of you who don't know.)

Shisha Cut: med, some stems, but hard to spot. Dark red, drippy, but wet not sticky.

Hookah Type: 22" Egyptian

Duration: 50min total

Bowl: shallow clay

Foil / Screen: modified "pocket" method foil

Coal / Amount: 2 (33m) goldens

Smoke: med to thick, not overly "cloudy"

Buzz: little to none

Smell / Flavor: Smell was a light Sweet Candy Peach. Taste was basically the same; a very light sweet peach taste. Very smooth and mellow, but not overly heavy on either the sweetness or the peach.

I expected alittle more Peach flavor, but this was an over-all enjoyable smoke. Very mellow, light taste, no buzz and easy to sit back and enjoy. Probably better as a mixer than alone, the taste was too light.

One word of warning - once this shisha burns, DON'T TRY to save it. The Burnt taste will only get worse, not better.
