REVIEW: Nakhla Mizo Watermelon

Bowl Used: Single Hose Sahara Custom
Foil:  Reynolds Wrap, double fold
Water Base: Ice water.
Coal Configuration: Three 33mm Three Kings Coal
Cut of the Tobacco: Moist, clumpy tobacco. The cut was random, there were some large pieces, some small. I had to cut down the larger ones. I saw some stems.
Smell: The scent is medium to heavy bodied, but smells like a candied watermelon. It isn't the fresh watermelon I was hoping for.
Flavor: The flavor that hit me quick, surprisingly, was this menthol flavor. It came as a shock to me, I didn't expect it but I assume ti was there for the "freshness factor" that they were trying to bring to the flavor. It wass a nice surprise, but not what should be there at all in my opinion. There is a light watermelon flavor, but it's completely overpowered by the menthol.
Smoke:  The smoke was semi thick. Nothing at all to complain about. Had some good times with it!
Longevity: This lasted me an hour and 45 mins.
Overall thoughts: This is an okay flavor. I bought 250g of it because that's all it comes and I will consider trading it or finishing the remainder, but wouldn't buy again. The watermelon just ISN'T the star of this shisha and it should be. Why I'm getting menthol is beyond me!

RATING: 4/10
