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.

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.

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.
