The Set-Up

Social Smoke Rose was reviewed after a several sessions using various hookahs and bowls. Most recently it was smoked from an Al Fakher Large Solid with a Vortex bowl.

The Experience

Social Smoke Rose, unlike other Social Smoke flavors, took roughly 6 to 8 pulls to begin smoking well and the flavor came along with the smoke. The flavor and smoke stayed strong for the duration of the session which lasted roughly an hour and a half.

The Flavor

Social Smoke’s Rose flavor is unique among the available rose flavors out there. While it has a very strong floral scent and taste, the taste is sweeter and warmer than most other similar flavors. Beyond the basic floral rose flavor, there are some hints of other flavors as well, though pinning them down is difficult. A very subtle spice is probably the best I could explain it.

The Insight

I found Social Smoke’s take on rose to be more smokeable than others. The sweetness cuts the feeling that your smoking a bowl of potpourri and really makes the whole thing more enjoyable. While floral flavors aren’t my favorite, I found this one very accessible.

Who Should Try This Flavor

Floral fans will probably love Rose. But also, folks who typically enjoy more conventional flavors but want to venture into the floral arena may find this is an excellent bridge.
