In fact, even if Starbuzz's price came down to a level of being comparable to Al Fakher, I''d still prefer AF.
It just depends on what you like. Some people like the more traditional stuff, some people like the modern stuff.
I don't smoke SB or any of the modern stuff. I've tried it, but it's just not worth the money. I agree with the 'twice the price should mean twice the quality'.
But see, you don't buy such brands because they're too expensive. If they'd give you some samples, there's a chance that you might find a flavor you like and maybe you'll pick that flavor up one day when it's on sale or something. You never know, is all I'm saying.
