Al Fakher Arena Sweet Drops Review

This flavor is the Batman of shisha flavors. Its dark and mysterious while strong and all over the place. HookahCompany.com says, “Sweet Drops by Al Fakher Arena is a sweet strawberry flavor with a bit of watermelon and mint.” Without being told that this flavor was a strawberry and watermelon mix I’m not sure if I would have picked up on it. The mint has a wintergreen tone while the “watermelon and strawberry” flavor are vague and mess with my mind when I try to decipher them for myself. With all that being said, the flavor is easy to smoke and light on the lungs. It has a heavy and robust flavor that sits on the back of your tongue while the mint tap dances in every corner of your mouth.

Al Fakher Soft Black

Soft Black is an unflavored tobacco. The taste is that of tobacco, made slightly sweet by the molasses ingredient. The result is something similar to smoking a standard pipe, unflavored cigar or expensive cigarette. Like natural tobaccos, the taste is dark, rich and earthy. It goes excellently with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. If the natural tobacco taste is too much for you, as it is for some people, adding a small amount of mild flavored tobacco, such as mint, cinnamon or jasmine can add the subtle sensation of smoking a flavored pipe tobacco or flavored cigar. Soft Black can also be added to strong, flavored tobaccos to mild things out a bit. But be warned, the more Soft Black you add to a flavored tobacco the more natural tobacco taste you will introduce.

Al Fakher Peach

The taste of Al Fakher Peach is very candy like. It more resembles the Fuzzy Peaches candy rather than bitting into a real peach. Because this is a washed tobacco, you do not get any of the natural tobacco taste that you would get from other brands such as Nakhla. Al Fakher Peach is also a great mixer and can be easily combined with Al Fakher Vanilla or Mint to enhance the smoking experience.

Al Fakher Sweet Melon

Al Fakher Sweet Melon is a simple, sweet candy-cantaloupe flavor. There are very few, if any, other flavors present. The natural tobacco taste is almost completely invisible, unlike the tobacco by the same name from Nakhla. The scent and taste are almost identical making Sweet Melon easy to place in mixes. Al Fakher Sweet Melon is more mild in its flavor and sweetness than other brands of Sweet Melon.

Al Fakher Lemon

Lemon is a mild citrus flavor. The aroma betrays the taste in that it smells more like cleaner than something you’d want to smoke, but tastes very different. Unlike Nakhla’s Lemon flavor, Al Fakher Lemon is much closer to the flavor of a real lemon, but still more of a candy-caricature. You might even compare it to a mild lemon-tea. Lemon is sweet, but not overpowering and it lacks the tartness of a real lemon. The lemon flavor is much more of a lemon sensation that a replication. The natural taste of the tobacco subtly peaks through, though in general, the taste is simple with only a few quiet undertones of tobacco, and the rest lemon. The simplicity and subtlety of the lemon taste makes this a great flavor for mixing.

Al Fakher Two Apples

Two Apples has a rich, complex anis flavor. When smoking for the first time, you will likely notice a licorice sensation thanks to the anis. But a more careful examination of the flavor will reveal undertones of spice and cinnamon, mingled with subtle apple tastes. It’s necessary to exhale through both your mouth and nostrils to fully appreciate Two Apples flavor, though either one in isolation is pleasant. As with most anis flavors, the sensation is dark and warming—not refreshing like a real apple.

Al Fakher Orange

The aroma and taste of Al Fakher orange is nearly identical. It is crisp, sweet and citrusy. The taste is unmistakably orange, but it is more of a witticism of the real thing. You’ll find it more closely resembles the taste of orange soda than real oranges. There are no other flavors present, or at least obviously so. In this way it is very simple and makes a great tobacco for mixing your own custom flavors.

Al Fakher Golden Bahraini Apple

When trying Golden Bahraini Apple for the first time, it seems most people recoil at how little it tastes like an actual apple. But with time, those who continue to smoke it learn to appreciate the complexity of the flavor. Golden Bahraini Apple has a rich, dark, almost earthy taste. At first you’ll want to liken it to licorice, but a more careful examination of the flavor reveals undertones of cinnamon and spice, paired with a subtle candy apple taste.. The flavor is warm, smooth and rich with a sweetness that doesn’t call attention to itself but supports the the complex set of flavors crossing your pallet.

Al Fakher Guava

Al Fakher Guava is a candy caricature of the real guava fruit. Most people familiar with the real taste of guava will probably notice the resemblance right off the bat. The taste is fruity and a bit tangy, but in terms of fruity flavors, much less sweet. The taste is simple, with almost no undertones. It makes an excellent ingredient for mixing with other Al Fakher flavors, such as Mint or Strawberry. Additionally, the Guava scent and the Guava flavor mirror each other very predictably.
