Default AF Eskandarani Apple

So, I went out and bought a box of Eskandarani Apple because everyone has told me how good it is.

I will say however, that I was NOT impressed by it at all. I found that it was very sour and had no sweetness to it whatsoever. Then I realized today that the box said it had expired in August of 2007. The man who sold it to me is a bloody crook!

Anyways, do you think my bad experience might be related to the fact that it was expired? If so, would mixing it with double apple make it a bit more tolerable?


I just had six 250g boxes come in today from the US: 3 AF Double Apple, 1 Grape, 1 Bahraini Apple, and 1 Eskandarani Apple (Now I have two Eskandarani, one that is expired and one that is new lol). Is the Bahraini Apple sweet?

Here's my two cents:

1. Its green apple. To me it should be more tart than sweet.
2. Where did you buy this batch from (acclimation might be an issue)
3. Did you mix the tobacco up so the whole amount was evenly coated with syrup before you packed you bowl?
4. Was the production date Aug 2005 or Aug 2007? If it was Aug 2007 then it should not be expired...

it wasn't expired, it's production date is what you saw. it will be good officially 2 years after, but even more imo.

Oh, I thought it was the expiration date. My mistake then.
I take back the 'crook' name calling, haha.

Um, I did mix all up, but it still tasted pretty sour.

I will be trying the Bahraini Apple tonight; is it sweet?

it may have a sour taste to it, maybe sour apple is the goal since it's a green apple on the box. i really like this flavor and it's almost too sweet or strong for me lately.

It is closer to a Double Apple Flavor.

I just smoked some Esk apple last night... I was at annuals house last night and I decided to mix some af cinnamon. One of the best mixes I have done in a long time! Also the first time I smoked this flavor I didn't like it at all, but after a couple times of smoking it, it was very good. For me it was more of an acquired taste than anything.

what you see on the box is when it was made, the way to find out if it is expired or not is 2 years from that date is still fine after that it will be expired. hope this helps.
