As to apple AF is alright but I think that Al Emir is better and Salloum Bahreny the best apple around (it's made in Egypt and very cheap to boot!)
As to double apple i'd say that AF Bahrainin or Afzal Silver Fox are the best. They both are quite different but very good.
I do not import AF. I buy it off the local market in Egypt. Never heard of Sheikh el balad, where did u buy it in Cairo? Hussein market?

DA yes has too much anise, Apple has none.
