Today I will be reviewing Starbuzz Exotic Melon Blue Tobacco.
Set up used: Chinese Hookah
Coals: Quick Light, Three Kings
This was my first time having this flavor, the smell is fantastic. I cant put my finger on what the smell is but the best way to explain it is like a blue raspberry bubblegum or something along those lines. This tobacco is not as juicy as the fantasia brand and is not “vibrant” in color, looks like wet tobacco really.
After around 10 pulls I started getting the first hints of smoke, had almost a caramel taste to it, very curious if it will continue or if my taste buds are going wacko (now have water to rinse my pallet). I started off with 1 QL charcoal split in half, ended up adding another one as it seems to not be taking off very well.
After 10 minutes of smoking, neither my wife or I could tell what the flavor is. No longer getting caramel but a light fruity taste like none I have ever had. The smoke is not as thick and rich as other tobacco’s we have had, it may be how I have it set up as I am not used to this tobacco.
This was harsh through out the smoking session, no matter what I did. I re packed it, changed the charcoal pattern, put less on, emptied the smoke out of vase…and it didn’t seem to help at all. The only thing it had going for it was the nice head buzz.
I didnt bother adding a picture of the smoke quality as it sucked. I have 50g of this so I will try it again and if anything is different I will update and re-post.
Smoke Time: 1 hour
Large quantity purchase? ….NO
