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.

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.

JM’s Hookah Blue Rain

Blue Rain is a candy-sour grape, with a mild mint element to it and that is very much what it tastes like. It’s positioned to be a competitor for Starbuzz’ Blue Mist, though the taste is really not at all similar. Within the hookah world, the flavor is much closer to Al Fakher’s Golden Grape, though a bit more refined.

Ayam Zaman Strawberry

Ayam Zaman Strawberry, while not quite exactly like the real thing, is by far the most accurate strawberry flavored shisha that I have tasted. It is sweet and bright, with only a hint of tartness. The flavor is much like a strawberry syrup, like you might drizzle on a cheesecake. In order to truly experience the accuracy of this particular flavor, it’s necessary to exhale the smoke through both your mouth and nose simultaneously.
