Social Smoke Dulce De Leche

Dulce De Leche is a sweet cream flavor. Neither fruit, nor obviously spice and certainly not floral. The most obvious sensation is sweet. It’s very sweet. But the actual flavor is delicate. It’s difficult to place exactly what it tastes like (made especially difficult since I’ve never had the drink for which this tobacco was named). There are some darker undertones, perhaps caramel, while the more obvious flavor is light and creamy.

Ayam Zaman Mint

Ayam Zaman is a mild, sweet spearmint flavor with just the slightest hint of something spicy. Most people probably won’t even notice. Besides that, the flavor is very basic, but not uninteresting.

Social Smoke Gumball

Gumball is just that—a gumball. The taste is remarkably similar to a real gumball. Very mild, sweet-mint taste makes it easy to smoke and doesn’t get too in your face. This flavor is simple and has no apparent undertones to speak of.

Hookah-Hookah Margarita

Margarita is extremely mild. No particular flavor stands out. There are subtle hints of lime and a flavor to mimic that of tequila, though it’s unlikely you would be able to discern it without being told what it’s supposed to taste like. There is also a definite natural tobacco taste present as well, though it’s difficult to decipher what is the flavor of the tobacco, versus what is intended to taste like margarita. The flavor in Margarita is also very sensitive. Too much heat produces a burnt taste, though unlike other tobaccos, it will go away if you reduce the heat.

Social Smoke Mojito

Mojito is a lime-citrus and mint blend with another subtle flavor to mimic the sensation of alcohol in the back of your throat. It really does very much resemble an actual mojito beverage. However, in its smoking form, the comparison is somewhat lost. The mint is very well hidden in this flavor—almost invisible. and the lime flavor is mild. What you’re left with is an easy to smoke, subtle semi-sweet citrus flavor that tastes a lot like a mojito if you know that’s what it’s supposed to taste like.

Nakhla Lemon

Nakhla Lemon is a candy, citrus flavor. The aroma is deceiving as it does not accurately match the flavor. But this isn’t a complaint. The flavor is easy to enjoy, not being too sweet or rich The lemon flavor probably most closely resembles the Lemonhead candy, which is sweet and lemony, but also a bit tart. This is just what you can expect from Nakhla Lemon. As with most Nakhla flavors, the natural tobacco taste is also clearly present, and introduces a dark, earthy experience to the Lemon flavor.

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.

Social Smoke Chai Latte

Chai Latte is an attempt to mimic the popular chai tea latte found in coffee shops like Starbucks. Social Smoke has been more successful in replicating the flavor than other brands making similar efforts, though it’s not quite there. The taste is mellow, creamy and slightly sweet, set on the backdrop of a smooth cinnamon taste. The cinnamon is has a spicy element to it, but is well balanced by a creamy vanilla flavor. However, if the bowl gets too hot the other flavors are almost completely lost leaving a potent cinnamon taste.

Starbuzz Marlette

Marlette has a sophisticated rich, dark, sweet, almost spicy, flavor. There are clear undertones of berry and grape. It produces a similar sensation in the back of your throat to a glass of red wine. This sensation can be accentuated by adding 4 – 8oz of merlot or shiraz red wine to the water in your hookah base.
