Sorry for the absence on my part. A lot has been going on in my life (work, searching for a new place to live, finances, usual life problems). My mind is full of ideas but with everything happening it is hard to find the time right now. I promise though, I will not leave you all again because I love my readers so much (without you, then it’s just me reading my own blog). Anyway, below is my first shisha review of many to come.
Today I will be reviewing one of my favorite (if not my #1 choice when it comes to shisha): Social Smoke Mobster.
Social Smoke is a company that joined the industry only recently (in 2002) and has made a name for itself in the current market by not only manufacturing shisha, but hookah pipes as well. While they do produce some traditional flavors such as apricot and double apple, they differentiate themselves from the traditional brands (e.g. Nakhla & Al Fakher) by producing more contemporary flavors such as Pandora’s Box, Sex Panther, Tiger’s Blood and my favorite – Mobster.
Mobster is a flavor I have yet to find anywhere else. What it is meant to taste like is the widely popular Monster Energy drink, and I must say it does it quite well (almost too well if I do say so myself). From the moment you open the plastic can it comes it you are hit with the strong and familiar smell of the original green Monster.
The cut of the tobacco is typical Social Smoke (shredded) with no stems or artificial dyes, and is very wet (a phunnel or vortex bowl would be best to use so as to prevent the juices from dripping down your stem).
As for the taste, well if you like Monster you will LOVE this. It is spot on to what a can of Monster taste like. This shisha produces thick clouds of smoke and the flavor lasts for a long time (unlike some shisha which can lose it’s flavor fairly quick). It is not uncommon to smoke this in a standard Mya bowl for 2 hours and have it still taste like the first puff.
This tends to be one of the flavors most requested when I bring my hookah anywhere since anyone who has tried it falls in love with it (unless you are someone who does not like Monster).
I would give this shisha a rating of 10/10. If you are someone who liked hookah and monster, I suggest you go out and buy yourself some of this.
