The Best Alchemist Shisha Tobacco Flavors

Breaking Down the Boutique Flavors of Alchemist Tobacco

Alchemist Tobacco is one of the newest brands of shisha tobacco to hit the market, filling a niche nobody even know existed and peaking the interest of all who search for new and interesting hookah experiences. They have a number of amazing flavors from their Original Formula blend and their Stout Formula line, but first let us break down the differences in their two lines. The Original Formula is made from premium quality French grown tobacco leaves that are finely cut and aged in oak bourbon barrels to give them an incredible depth of flavor. The Stout Formula uses premium cigar tobacco, known as "Sun Grown Dark Leaf Ligero Tobacco," that has undergone an extra fermentation process to give it a high nicotine concentration and a dark, rich flavor.

Both lines of Alchemist shisha tobacco feature amazing new takes on classic flavors, and delicious mixes the likes of which you've never seen! Read on to see a description of each flavor, and determine which you'll chose for your first bowl of Alchemist!

Alchemist Original Formula

Quite like a large slice of actual key lime pie, the Key Lime Mint shisha tobacco adds cool little sprigs of mint flavor to the mouth-filling taste of creamy sweet lime.

To the well organized mind, this shisha is but your next great adventure! This crazy gum flavor combines two vastly different kinds of chewing gum into one incredible flavor of shisha tobacco. Putting fresh spearmint gum and fruity pink bubble gum together may not seem like the best way to get gum flavors in a hookah session, but boy is it an amazing combo! They come together very  pleasantly, with the pink bubblegum being present largely on the inhale and the spearmint making itself known on the exhale, leaving a great cooling effect in your mouth.
