REVIEW: Hookah Hookah Melon

Bowl Used: Triple Hose Maju
Foil:  Reynolds Wrap, double fold
Water Base: Ice water.
Coal Configuration: Two 33mm Three Kings Coal
Cut of the Tobacco: Undyed course grounded tobacco. Not very wet, not dry.
Smell: The smell of cantaloupe is predominate in this tobacco. It's a very natural cantelope smell and if you close your eyes, you'd think someone stuck a cantaloupe in your face.
Flavor: The taste is very subtle, but whatever you do taste is exactly what you were smelling. There is a cantaloupe taste, just like the smell.
Smoke:  Smoke got thick only after I was forced to use a third 33mm three kings coal. It took about 15-20 minutes and I would compare the smoke to that of a weaker Starbuzz.
Longevity: Everything lasted me about an hour
Overall thoughts: I first want to say how grateful I am of for giving me this free shot of shisha. The shot is definitely enough to fill my small vortex bowl and good enough for a single person session. Overall, this is a very light flavor but enjoyable. I wish it was a bit more moist, but it could have just been the batch I got considering I know Hookah Hookah to be generally more moist than the sample I got. The smell and taste is all cantaloupe, so I think the name should be changed to cantaloupe instead of "Melon" since melon makes me think I may get a mixture of some watermelon, honey dew and cantaloupe. I got a semi buzz, but I'm a light weight :P

RATING: 7.5/10
