Default Al Fakher

Has Anyone tried Al Fakher Lately? If so How are the new batches coming out? does it taste like it did when they were at their prime?

personally, i have about 1.25 kilos of AF and i can honestly say that they all taste great, smoke great, and give you a great buzz. mint is at the top for me, then vanilla, cafe latte, watermelon, and cola.

I have a bunch of AF. Some of the newer released flavors and they are fine for me. The golden line continues to impress me (except the strawberry...)

There is a lot of AF hatred on the boards but the only way to tell for yourself is to order some or make a trade. Personally I will continue to smoke AF until I get a bad experience myself.

Ya, Golden strawberry gave me next to no flavor. I got more from HH strawberry. That is saying something. The smell was amazing but nothing came through in the smoke.

AF is washed.

I wouldn't buy it if it was a penny for a kilo. Times are tough, no use gambling a penny.

Picked up Af Banana, Bubble gum and Double Apple last week. All good no complaints, bubble gums a little chemically but still alright but banana and double apple are all good.

AF is very wet, but no complaints, in australia AF, Nakhla and Al Waha are more predominant brands. However Nakhla is my favourite

be careful with the peach. there are very bad batches out there... very. bad. batches.

other than that, af is pretty damn good. it's no tangiers or nakhla, but it's good.

My last AF was fine - I had some peach, and though I botched the session i think it would have been fine otherwise. Still have some Mango and DA waiting, so I'll let you know if those are up to par or not

My last 2 batches of AF were terrible.

Pipe and watermelon, both were awesome for the first 5 or so hits, then just got unbearably harsh and I've tried everything to fix it.

Been smoking more fantasia lately and I have to say I'm impressed.

Al Waha is not washed, neither is Nakhla, although their El Basha line seems to be.
