Al Fakher Rose

Bowl: mini clay, standard clay

Smell / Flavor: Smelt just like a rose, no joking. Fresh picked flower! I couldn't believe my nose. Taste... I have to assume that if I ate a Rose, that's what it would taste like. Very interesting taste, not horrible, but alarming if you aren't expecting it. Slightly sweet as well. Surprising good.

I was happily surprised by this shisha. It was bought for a friend who hasn't gotten around to smoking it - so I tried some. Smells and tastes like a Rose (taste I'm guessing). Very nice and mellow, if a bit surprising at first. Can get a little overpowering, but still a good smoke.
Added a small pinch of AF Mint about 40mins in - mellowed the "flower" taste down and turned in into a very good smoke. Made the house smell good for several hours afterwards.
Mixes well with Apple (none anise versions).
