Default AF grape unsmokable batch

I just opened a 250g container of brand new AF grape and it smelled like something was rotten in their. the production was 2/2009 so it was still good. Has this happened to anyone else?

I have ordered grape so many times I never expected a problem, I bought it from a well known vendor online and he'll make good. I knew of a problem last year I figured that was history and they would have it under control so it couldn't happen again by now. Well never again at least AF. This is the first batch of bad shisha I ever got and boy is it bad.

I only bought a single tub of AF grape a year ago .... was my first ..... Was so good I went through it like fire in dry leaves.

Then went and bough a kilo ....... YUCK ...... since then all batches are shitty, even ones I got directly from Dubai !

Since this happened to me today of course I have been reading a lot of threads about bad grape and grape that tastes like ketchup, I didn't know it was an epidemic and never would have thought AF would let that continue. The 250g tub of AF Grape I received today didn't smell like ketchup it smelled like a rotting dead animal. you can acclimate this for months it wouldn't change a thing. The foil pouch had no holes so the manufacturer had to have known what was going into these tubs. My entire outlook of AF has changed because I used to be a fan but lately I'm seeing a turn for the worst. I want to get this exchanged and out of here ASAP and I'll stick to other grape flavors because I do love grape shisha.

So AF Grape has changed from ketchup to rotten

Think it is about time that AF gets some representation here so one can throw these kind of problems to them.

AF Grape changed thier tobacco and thier flavoring for thier grape and its still been sort of a double whammy on that product.

As far as AF getting some representation, don't kid yourself. The people at AF and SB don't even smoke hookah, let alone care about what people on the forums think (unforunately).

NAKHLA MIZO GRAPE. tastes the same and smokes just as well (if not better), it's consistant (no bad batches) and gives you a nice small buzz.

i will never buy AF again, unless it's mint, pipe, or cafe latte.

Okay, I don't want to scare you or anything, because your 250g batch may turn out better than my 50g I received today...but, I'm actually smelling it right now and it smells like grape juice, BBQ sauce with a faint latex odor. I got it from Hookah-Hookah and, quite frankly, I'm a bit nervous to try it. The expiration date was 2011, so it isn't old, but it does smell kinda weird.

I bought a batch with a May 2009 date, and although the cut is absolutely terrible, the taste and smell are mouth watering.

Who knows what the reason is or how many packs of 250g's are made up in one week if not one day from one batch. I think I was just unlucky with this pack and it was from a bad batch and I'm sure there have to be others like mine out there. I just know no more AF grape for me, too many others to choose from. I was going to get their golden too but for whatever reason I remembered really liking this type the last time I bought a pack. But there appears to be a large variety of types of grape shisha coming from the same time period, no consistancy so it seems.
