Hookah-Hookah Clove was reviewed using a Al Fakher Large Solid with a Vortex bowl and three Coconara coals.
Clove is resilient to heat. So much so, in fact, that it took nearly 10 minutes with a wind-cover to begin smoking to its fullest potential. The flavor was available within four to five pulls, but denser smoke came later. Once the sweet-spot was found, the clouds were adequately dense, but not especially ‘impressive’. The aroma and the taste of Clove are very close, though the taste is actually richer than the smell.
Clove is dark, rich and spicy. It tastes very much like the real clove spice. However, unlike other brand’s attempts at clove flavors, Hookah-Hookah clove is fairly mild with quiet, sweet undertones of cinnamon.
Hookah-Hookah Clove is impressive. I admit, I was taken aback with the accuracy of the flavor and the size of the clouds. I could easily see this flavor being something I keep on my shelf regularly. It’s likely to make a great mixer as well. While not being too intense, it’s easy to smoke and goes great with a cup of ice-coffee.
Who Should Try This Flavor
People with an affinity for spice flavors will probably really enjoy this one. Because it’s mild, it will also probably find appeal with a broader group of people. If you’re a fan of fruit flavors, but would like to try your hand at something spicy, Hookah-Hookah Clove will probably make a good introduction.
