I’m absolutely loving the newschool hash, it’s definitely getting better and better. I consider myself very lucky to be able to get some good examples here in London. But these days I prefer to go to Barcelona now over Amsterdam. So, for the last 5 years I’ve stopped my 4 to 6 visits a year down to one. That’s probably why I keep seeing average batches of Sensible and previous favouritesMarok21 wrote: ↑Thu 11th Aug 2022 07:15 pmOh yeah that Reserva X make me really nice memories . I can only agree with you, I miss that smell of the old genetics, too I really like the moroccan hash that was available at that time made out of paki/afhan/indian genetics. At some point the genetics disappeared but at Original Dampkring I still found over the last years some hashes that were kind of comparable. They even got hash some time ago that was possibly made out of Paki/Afghan/Indian genetics called "Nadij" which tasted pretty similar to the old stuff but sadly potency was a bit weaker...Deus wrote: ↑Wed 10th Aug 2022 09:50 pm I agree, the Sensible was far from what I was expecting. It’s been a while since my last purchase, maybe even over 5 years ago. Really miss that unique smell the old batches had. It kind of reminded me of Reserva X from Coffeeshop Anyday many years ago. Well, I would put it in that category anyway (quality wise).
Also the Sensabille had some fire batches over the last years but sadly quality changes from batch to batch. While the quality here is in general more constant than in many other coffeeshops I would say.
Also the Niqa was fire for a period...
Sadly it seems like that right now many batches are not that special (well only the Mantequilla) which is pretty rare at Dampkring but I hope they will get some fire batches as soon as possible . Well it will be hard to beat the old Sensabile from years back because of the now dead genetics but the fact that there is still fine classic hash that stands out from the crowd makes me positive
I can definitely recommend the Wedding cake filtered hash! That Tangielato looked also very tempting but sadly I couldn´t try them all I have had very good experiences with Coffeeshop Solo especially in terms of newschool hash. I never got really disappointed here and I trust their quality.
Over the last years the quality of newschool hash increased a lot while the oldschool stuff gets less and less... that has pros and cons... on one hand years back there was no hash around that smelled/tastes so crazy like the weed its made from (well Skuff was like that) but on the other hand that unique real hashy taste is nearly dead With that newschool hashes you have also more variety in terms of effect in my opinion... but different to the really relaxing effect classic moroccan has on me.
Loved the Reserva X (for some reason I keep thinking it was called Reserva Privada) Maybe that was something else entirely, it’s been too long
Really appreciate your recommendations, I always hope you post before I go so I know where the fire is
Will make another trip in November.
