I picked up 250g of grape with mint and it tasted normal to me, no vinegar/ ketchup taste. The date on it was Aug 08 . Not sure what the dates were on the bad stuff.

Well matey I guess you're gonna have to take what's given . I purchased Al Fakher Grape three times this whole "bad" batch ordeal was taking place and the only one that tasted different was the last one. Just wasn't quite right. That was quite a while ago, however. Whatever the case may be, I always acclimate it just to be certain. Grab you a 250, acclimate it, and see how it turns out for you my friend .

I purchased an Aug 08 batch in February and it was like ketchup and some weird spice I've never smelled before. Buyer beware.

perhaps someone was urinating in the shisha tub?

or someone was taking their lunchbreak on a mesh patio 3 stories up, and directly below was the tub of AF Grape, then ketchup fell from their burger into the tub.

Or the AF plant is right next to a Ketchup plant, and theuy got the orders mixed up

Or the Ketchup plant had a bad batch of ketchup and pumped it into the river, and the AF plant downstream pumped in the ketchup infused water and used it in their Grape

AF is a hit and miss, unless i can get it for a good rate i will no longer take a chance on it, espically when theys other brands out they that have never given me a bad batch E.G nakhla starbuzz etc
But the AF grape was really good back in the days, its worth the risk as i haven't had a ketchup tasting one in a while, just one that hurts my throat
