Ugly Hookah - a brand that most of you are aware of, as it's a brand that's taken the last few years by storm in the hookah community. From flavors like Apple Apple, to Orange Keef, Ugly has been a big hit, and there's no surprise why. With some fantastic flavor profiles, and a wonderful tobacco to back it up, Ugly has had a recipe for success from the get go. Today I'm going to be giving you my top 5 favorite Ugly hookah tobacco flavors - one's that you may have missed, or flavors that you may already be aware of.
#5 - Marcoje
One of the most underrated Ugly flavors, in my opinion, Marcoje is a fruit blend, with a predominantly guava flavor. What really sets this flavor apart is how cleanly the guava comes through - normally, in a mix like this, I would expect the fruit tones to muddle the guava, and just make it a weird mix of flavors. However, Marcoje did not let me down, and the guava doesn't just come through, it comes through as one of the cleanest guava flavors that you'll find around, and the fruit mix just complements it oh so well. The guava creates a rather start contrast to the rest of the mix, as it's bold, and very different from the rest of the flavors in the fruit mix. It's without a doubt the star of the show, but the fruit mix could honestly be smoked on its own (it is it's own flavor), and the two just pair up to make this wonderful medley of flavors that just set your taste buds soaring. This one is definitely one to try, as it's one of the few Ugly flavors that I don't see getting too much love.
#4 - Grapefruit Mint
A flavor that has a special place in my heart - Grapefruit Mint. Now, while most of you are undoubtedly familiar with Al Fakher's infamous Grapefruit Mint flavor, there's a new contender in the ring. Ugly's Grapefruit Mint comes through with that total knockout, and delivers one of the cleanest grapefruit flavors on the market. It's pungent, it's bitter, and it's delicious. The mint is never overbearing, and it just helps to calm the bitterness of the grapefruit enough to make it palatable for everyone, not just you die hard grapefruit minters out there. This flavor is everything a Grapefruit Mint flavor should be, and nothing more. It may not be a total replacement for Al Fakher's grapefruit, however it's certainly a close contender, and definitely worth picking up.
#3 - RollerCoaster
Sure, everyone's heard of Orange Keef, there's no question there. What you haven't heard of, is this - RollerCoaster, an Orange Keef and anise mixture. While at first thought, everyone is going think "what, why? That sounds awful." And to be fair - I did too! However, this flavor is one of those flavors that really does live up to the name - it takes you on a rollercoaster of a ride, with the Orange Keef being the main driving force behind the flavor, and being followed up by a somewhat sweet anise flavor. The two do a wonderful job of balancing each other out, and while it's not for everyone, if you can enjoy some anise once in a while, this is a flavor that you shouldn't sleep on.
#2 - Ma-Wardi
Remember how much I said I liked Marcoje? Well, take that, and replace the guava with a sweet peach flavor. Congratulations, you have Ma-Wardi! While these two flavors are exceedingly similar, I think that Ma-Wardi stands above Marcoje, as the peach blends a little bit better with the fruit mix and makes for a symphony of fruit, with the peach being the cherry on top, the finishing touch. Marcoje is certainly delicious, however peach flavors will always have a special place in my heart, and maybe that's why it's ended up at number two on this list. Pro-tip - throw it in with some Cane Mint for some next level delicious.
#1 - Orange Keef
Come on, what did you expect? Orange Keef is number one on this list, and it almost doesn't even need to be said why. As one of the best, if not the best orange flavors on the market, Orange Keef is what put Ugly on the map, and while Ugly certainly has a lot of great flavors, this flavor is why Ugly won't be going anywhere anytime soon. A both sweet and bitter orange, this flavor is one of the most accurate flavors on the map, and it's something that everyone should try. If you haven't done yourself the favor of trying this out yet, what are you even doing with your life? Get some Orange Keef, and thank me later.
Let's Get Ugly!
Ugly is one of those brands that you just have to try for yourself. It's unique, delicious, and there are flavors for everyone. While the five that I listed here are by far my favorites, there's way more to choose from, and narrowing this list down to five was not easy by any means. So because we love Ugly so much, we're going to help you to get Ugly - for this week only, we're marking all of our Ugly Hookah Tobacco down to $14.99, running from until Sunday, September 3rd.
