Default Al Fakher Grape

My local guy was out of Nakhla DA so I decided to try Al Fakher grape at his recommendation, I didn't like the taste or smell at all,
my question is has anyone tried rinsing the tobacco then mix it with other flavors? is that a good idea or am I only going to ruin another pack?

AF Grape has been a shitty product for a while now. It used to be great and then just turned to crap.

I suppose you could completely rinse the tobacco, add new molasses, glycerin, and flavoring... donno how well it'll turn out, but give it a shot and let us know!

I don't have knowledge as to rinsing the tobacco but I had to let my AF Grape sit outside / in the garage for about 10-14 days until the ketchup smell went away. Now I have smoked almost the whole tub . It isn't bad... But Nakhla Mizo Grape = Better

Funny thing is AF grape and fumari grape used to taste and smell the exact same, IMO. But now, AF grape sucks but Fumari grape is still the same. Why dont you try fumari out?

let it sit out for a while, the flavor should mellow down to more enjoyable flavor

Yeah I dunno how I did not like it from the beginning. Now I love it and I am halfway through a 250g box (the wetter, juicier, tastier tobacco sold in tupperware containers not available in the US )

I find that fries and AF Grape compliment eachother very well.

The only thing left to do is to destroy the whole tub in the mightiest of fires. Works everytime. Oh, and don't forget to order some Mizo Grape or Nak El Basha Grape. I hear Layalina's ain't half bad either.

AF Grape was by far the best shisha around when it came out, after 2-3 months of it being out the "ketchup smell" came out and all production of it has been crap ever since. I don't mind it but it doesn't compare to when it was first released.
