This review was performed after many smoking sessions with various hookahs and bowl styles. Most recently it was reviewed using a Khalil Mamoon Pearl hookah and a HJ Alien Mini phunnel bowl.
For a premium tobacco, Romman does not easily produce huge, dense clouds. Although they’re still nothing to shake a stick at. With adequate heat, Good Times begins smoking within two or three pulls, but the flavor is noticeable almost instantly. The flavor lasts as long as the smoke, about an hour and fifteen minutes. When taking a hit every 30 to 60 seconds, Romman tobacco produces a mild buzz.
Romman Good Times is a blend of orange, lemon, apple and mint flavors. The most dominant is clearly the orange citrus, though I wouldn’t classify it exactly as a citrus tobacco. When smoking, it’s difficult to pick out the specific flavors, and in that way it’s a bit simple. The mint also is weak compared to what you might expect. Rather than producing a mint sensation, it has a subtle cooling effect.
In my opinion, Romman Good Times is absolutely excellent. The citrus is mild, carefully toned down with the lemon and apple flavors. In parties and groups, Good Times is almost universally a hit. It’s not too sweet, too minty or citrusy. It’s extremely accessible. If it were priced more affordably, Romman Good Times would be a perpetual presence on my tobacco shelf.
Who Should Try This Flavor
I have yet to meet someone who tried Good Times and didn’t like it. So I feel pretty confident in saying that if you like fruit flavors, you will like this one. It’s one of the few fruit blends that really hits the mark. I suspect however, that folks who pretty much exclusively like spice flavors may not be crazy about this one.
