Social Smoke Ginger Bread

Gingerbread is somewhat true to its name. It does have a spicy ginger flavor, but it lacks the distinct sweetness of the cookie. That’s not to say it’s unpleasant. In fact, it’s quite nice. But it comes across as more of an almost tangy, spice flavor than a sweet Christmas-themed one.

Tonic Kama Sutra

It’s a bit challenging to identify the flavors making up Kama Sutra. At the beginning of the draw, there is a bite, perhaps a sour sensation. On exhale, there’s a sweet watermelon flavor. There are also most likely some berry or fruit flavors mixed in as well, but they are indistinct.

Hookah-Hookah Ginger Ale

Ginger Ale is definitely similar to the real thing, but really not quite right. There is a distinct cola flavor present, and something a bit spicy, like ginger, but the over all flavor was more reminiscent of soft-drink sweetness than actual ginger ale.

Tonic Virgin Strawberry

Virgin Strawberry doesn’t taste much like strawberries in a realistic sense. But in the world of artificial strawberry flavors, this one isn’t bad, but isn’t great either. This one is candy-sweet and In real world comparisons, Virgin Strawberry tastes quite a lot like those individually wrapped strawberry candies.

Tonic Hitman

Tonic’s Hitman most likely intended to be an energy drink flavor—designed to taste like an energy drink. And it does, to some degree, but better. Who really likes the taste of energy drinks enough to taste it for an hour and a half? In actuality, it’s a well blended mixture of berries and fruit, likely strawberries and guava with some indistinct floral flavors throughout. Unlike some of the other ‘energy drink’ flavors on the market, Hitman has no mint flavors whatsoever.

Ayam Zaman Lemon

Ayam Zaman Lemon is like a spicy lemon-drop candy. The flavor is sweet, with a spicy tobacco undertone, which is present in all of the Ayam Zaman flavors—it’s not a drawback, it’s part of the appeal of the Ayam Zaman line. In this case, the spicy flavor doesn’t seem like an accident, as it sometimes does in other brands, such as Nakhla.

Tonic White Peach

White Peach is a sweet, peach flavor. It is both sweet and mild at the same time. The flavor is a softer, lighter peach with virtually no hint of tartness, which when coupled with the sweetness, would often make for a kind of candy-version of the peach flavor. In this case, not so. White Peach is both surprisingly realistic, and very easy to smoke.

Hookah-Hookah Mint

Mint is, exactly as the name implies, minty. It’s a refreshing, menthol-like mint flavor. It is not too strong so that it almost stings the back of the throat, but rather has a breath-mint like sensation to it.

Tonic Banda-Bing!

Bada-Bing! is a welcome blend of mild watermelon and sweet mint flavors. There are likely some other flavors in there as well, but they blend seamlessly and identifying them is near impossible.

Hookah-Hookah Graham Cracker

While the aroma of the tobacco is nearly identical to actual graham crackers, the flavor, unfortunately is not. The flavor is a combination of honey and a subtle sweet spice. Possibly cardamom.
