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-Freak Sweet Tang

Sweet Tang was, well, sweet and tangy. The flavor is a mild citrus, most likely orange. The flavor, in the real world, is much like a sweet orange-aide drink, with a subtle mint flavor.

Tonic DaVinci

While the flavor is distinctly peaches, the flavor is also sweet and mild and surprisingly realistic. In spite of no mint element whatsoever, the peach flavor is impressively refreshing.

Ayam Zaman Watermelon

Ayam Zaman Watermelon, like it’s Hookah-Hookah cousin, is an excellent, realistic watermelon flavor. The flavor is sweet and rich, similar to the bright pink parts of a real watermelon, but there are also some notes of tartness, like you might find in the lighter parts of a watermelon found closer to the rind. However, unlike the Hookah-Hookah counterpart, Ayam Zaman’s Watermelon also has a distinct natural tobacco undertone which, in this case, takes away from the overall flavor a bit.

Hookah-Hookah Watermelon

Hookah-Hookah Watermelon tastes like watermelon. This, however, is important—where most brand’s watermelon flavors are a Bubbleyum caricature of the real melon, Hookah-Hookah’s watermelon is actually hyper-realistic. The flavor is sweet, but not candy sweet. The flavor is a mix of the sweet, bright pink parts of a real watermelon, as well as the more bitter, lighter colored parts found closer to the rind.

Social Smoke Orange

Social Smoke Orange tasted precisely as the name suggests—like an orange. It is sweet and citrusy, and like a real orange there is a subtle sour flavor underneath it all. If you’re familiar with Nakhla tobacco, you will notice that the flavoring element in Social Smoke’s orange is very, very similar to Nakhla’s orange flavor. However, where Nakhla’s orange has a noticeable foundation of the natural tobacco flavor, Social Smoke’s Orange has almost none, which creates a very realistic sensation.

Al Tawareg Citrus Mint

Citrus Mint is simply as the name describes, though the citrus is not a medley, but a basic lemon. Unlike some lemon flavors, Al Tawareg’s lemon is more tart and realistic, rather than a candy-sweet. The mint is mild, but clearly present.

Al Tawareg Beer

Al Tawareg Beer is strikingly realistic. Though it’s light, it does taste very much like beer. To be more specific, the taste is similar to that of an ambiguous light-beer, like Bud Lite or Miller Lite. Under the microscope, the flavor appears to be a clever use of honey flavoring.

Social Smoke Banana

Banana is a surprisingly realistic version of the real fruit flavor. It is, however, still a strangely awkward caricature of the real thing. It is a sweet, simple, very mild, candy banana. Almost identical to the Runts candies that you used to find in the single serving candy machines at the barber shop.

Social Smoke Cinnamon Apple

Cinnamon Apple is just as the name implies. Cinnamon and apple. The flavor is mild. However, it is also warm and spicy, thanks to the cinnamon flavoring. And, while the spice flavor is dominant, the apple provides a refreshing, sweet undertone. The balance is near perfect. Comparing the flavor in the real world, Cinnamon Apple tastes almost identically to a bowl of cooked apple and cinnamon dessert.
