I've only tried SB on a handful of occasions, and it's usually very sweet. However, when it comes to nakhla and AF, I honestly can't tell the difference in "quality", but of course I still prefer some flavors over others.

My roomate loves double apple, and while I'll smoke it with him, I'm not a fan. it tastes like black liqourice. As to the topic at hand, I would have hoped that every flavor is a knocout considering how much more expensive SB is than AF, but that's not the case. It's going to just be personal preference.
Double apple tastes like licorice because there is Anise in it which is the licorice flavor fyi.

I prefer SB over AF any day. I was hoping on getting a new shipment of it soon but since I'm moving to Cali on aug 10th shipping will be cheaper there and also I don't need to pack it with me XP SB flavor always lasts me a great amount of time. I love this stuff =]

Very true. I have only tried one flavor from each SB and AF, but IMO they are equally good. These are definitely two brands I would like to buy more of if I had them more readily available.

+1, mine too. If I need to restock on some shisha I'll stay away from the lollipop tobacco.

Desi Murli, Nakhla, Tangiers Noir are all I need.

starbuzz always beats af and nakhla in my opinion. but once again for each it own. everyone likes different things. some ppl likes beer some ppl likes coke cant say one is greater or crap.

Had tow bowls tonight. one of AF apple/AF mint and another of SB tangarine/AF mint.

Starbuzz is somewhat better but can get a little chemically which is bad. plus it's more expensive and i don't think it's worth that much extra. Both sessions were very good though had lots of flavor and taste.

If it came down to SB vs AF I'd go with AF. Despite the inconsistencies of batches, it is on a significantly lower price point and delivers all the clouds that you'd expect from something like SB. Although AF doesn't have the creativity of flavors that can be found in some of the SB tins, a creative mind can make a variety of mixes for the cost of 1 tin of SB. I will say that SB doesn't have the "throat tickle" that AF does but once you get the hang of AF it is very enjoyable. Another plus of AF for me is that you can still smoke it in a standard bowl and have reasonably good results, whereas if you put SB in a standard bowl the juices just dont stay with the tobacco.
Nakhla remains my go to but between AF and SB, Al-Falkher still wins out.

personally i fins SB is a good mixer with AF, both complemement each other well.
Nakh deffo is better than both, and superbly priced, but the best has to be tangiers, both lucid and not.
