Ayam Zaman Double Apple

Ayam Zaman Double Apple, like all double Apple flavors is an anis based flavor which resembles sweet black licorice. Ayam Zaman’s version is significantly more mild than other brands on the market with some clear undertones of the natural tobacco flavor.

Ayam Zaman Thousand & One Nights

Nights, I’m told, is actually an adaptation of a traditional Middle Eastern drink. Few in North America will recognize this comparison. The flavor is dark and spicy with a striking sweetness which makes for an interesting, complex and calming flavor. You’ll likely first notice a blend of what seems to be cinnamon and clove, but set atop a black licorice foundation—thought this observation only comes after a careful inspection of the different flavors.

Al Fakher Golden Bahraini Apple

When trying Golden Bahraini Apple for the first time, it seems most people recoil at how little it tastes like an actual apple. But with time, those who continue to smoke it learn to appreciate the complexity of the flavor. Golden Bahraini Apple has a rich, dark, almost earthy taste. At first you’ll want to liken it to licorice, but a more careful examination of the flavor reveals undertones of cinnamon and spice, paired with a subtle candy apple taste.. The flavor is warm, smooth and rich with a sweetness that doesn’t call attention to itself but supports the the complex set of flavors crossing your pallet.
