Unhappy Problem with AL FAKHER!!! :(

Hey everyone....this is my first post so hopefully this is the right section to discuss the kind of problem Im having.

First of ALL I Love Al Fakher!!! I have been smoking Al Fakher "GRAPE" for a long time but yesterday, for the first time I had a really bad experience with the new pack I just bought. It smells really bad!!! As soon as I put the coal I can smell the weird smell which I cant really explain. I took the first drag and it tasted really bad. I thought maybe its the hookah (even though its the new Khalil Mamoon) I tried 3 different hookahs but still no difference. I left it outside on a piece of foil paper for 8-10 hours to acclimate it but still nothing changed. IT SMELLS AND TASTE VERY VERY BAD! It never happened before and this is my fav. flavor and I dont wanna lose it......!!!

Any suggestions?!?! Is there anyway I can fix it?!?!
HELP ME PLEASEEEEEEE!!!

Enter the word "ketchup" in the search bar. That might answer your question.

let the person(S) you bought from know that the batch was bad see if they replace it for you, but if not your beat and need to buy more.

this is depressing to hear that AF grape is officially garbage now...it makes you wonder a) is it possible to find the classic AF grape that was really good and b) has anyone complained to AF at all? haven't there sales been effected by this?

I personally love AF..the cut, the smoothness, the taste, im gonna miss the grape

if you are using quicklighting coals, that is probably causing your headache.

I'm personally not a fan of Nakhla...i feel like the quality is too cheap for my taste...al-fakher is (was?) superior overall in my opinion. Although coals may play a role, nakhla is by far the most headache-friendly shisha, i remember when i went to visit Iran 4 years ago it's all they smoked and the buzz was a turn-off. Taste wise, I thought Nahkla strawberry was pleasant.
