Tonic Chocolate Mint Vanilla Review

Tonic Chocolate Mint Vanilla

Shisha Cut: med cut, some stems, dark brown/black in color, sticky
Hookah Type: 27" Syrian
Duration: 55min
Bowl: Egyptian clay
Foil / Screen: foil
Coal / Amount: (2) 1.5" exotica’s
Smoke: med to thick
Buzz: light to med
Smell / Flavor: Smell was a nice minty chocolate mix, not as strong as AW's After9 or Nakhla's Cocomint, similar in smell to SB's Chocolate Mint, but with a vanilla undertone. Taste was nice, you defiantly know it was chocolate mint - weaker (in taste) than AW or Nakhla, stronger than SB's. Chocolate, with vanilla tones and a nice mint aftertaste.

Rating (1 to 10): 8

I had grown tired of AW's version and Nakhla's is quite strong, SB's was iffy (and costs too much) but Tonic seemed to hit the mark on this flavor. Just the right mix, you can defiantly tell it's chocolate, the vanilla is a nice sweet surprise and the mint makes a great finisher.

But, there were a few reasons for the 8 score: 1) heat sensitive just like SB and 2) not much cheaper than SB.

All in all, if you want a newer version of Chocolate Mint (Vanilla) try this, just remember - it's NOT Al Waha's Afternine and it suffers the same issues as Starbuzz.
