Re: AF issues?
Although i too currently have my taste buds going for more traditional style tobacco especially the ones i brought back from iran and the more "spice" like tobaccoes i can confidently tell you that if you get any AF with dates of july 08 + you will be ok. I tried some of the 2007 batches and it was crap but the recent 08's are really good. So far i have tried the following:
AF watermelon (a bit too strong tasting for me)
AF Esk. Apple
I am close to opening my lounge here in california so i get a lot of samples from AF and i particularly told them to send me some of their newest production date samples and rest assure they were great.
