Hookah-Hookah Lemonade

Hookah-Hookah Lemonade has a very mild, subtle lemon flavor with some added sweetness. the flavor is so light that some of the natural tobacco flavor shines through right from the start.

A representative from Social Smoke says that the prices of products sold in their online store will be going down, “way down”. The source says, “Basically we will be the cheapest (or match the cheapest) on the internet for many items.”
The circumstances leading to this drop in prices, as well as where about the prices will land, are still unclear. Also still unclear are exactly what products will experience the most significant drop in prices, since the company’s website sells a full gamut of hookah tobacco and accessories.

Hookah-Hookah Double Apple

Hookah-Hookah Double Apple is Sahara Smoke’s attempt at one of the world’s oldest and most famous flavors. The flavor is famously tastes nothing like apples, but rather uses a strong anis ingredient. If you’re unfamiliar with anis, the easiest way to describe it is sweet licorice. Unlike older brands such as Nakhla and Al Fakher, which produce similar tobaccos under the name ‘Two Apples’, Hookah-Hookah’s Double Apple is roughly the same flavor, but a tad sweeter and lighter.

Tonic Double Pears

Double Pears at the least smokeable, and at best pretty tasty. But, the flavor is really indistinguishable as pears. The dominant flavor is clearly a mild honey, with light fruit undertones.

Ayam Zaman Fruit Mix

From the packaging, Fruit Mix smells almost exactly like black licorice. Different from licorice-like, anis flavors such as Two Apples from Nakhla, Fruit Mix smells almost exactly like black candy licorice. The flavor, however, significantly differs from the smell. Fruit Mix tastes just as the name implies, like an ambiguous combination of different fruit flavors, weighted more toward berry varieties. The overall taste, as far as fruit mix flavors are concerned, is a bit spicier and darker.

Al Tawareg Double Apple

Al Tawareg has some big shoes to fill with Double Apple. The flavor is among the oldest known hookah ‘flavors’, popularized by Nakhla Tobacco, whose fans are famously passionate about the their products. Double Apple really tastes nothing like apples, as the name and graphics on the packaging might suggest. In fact, Double Apple is an anis flavor which most closely resembles black licorice. In spite of black licorice having a seemingly small fan-base, in the hookah world, Double Apple has a huge fan base. Al Tawareg’s attempt honors the original well with a very, very familiar flavor. However, compared to similar flavors from Al Fakher and Nakhla, Al Tawareg’s Double Apple is light and mellow. The natural honey composition also shines through with a subtle honey sweetness and just a hint of cinnamon.
