Does AF seem to smoke harsh both when there's not enough heat and too much heat? I was using three nearly dead coals on a fresh bowl and it was really harsh...but then i added 2 fresh ones to those three and the harshness was replaced by huge flavorful clouds.

AF kinda has this thing now about how the owners left in 2008 and started a brand called havana, and the people who own AF now don't make batches by hand anymore, they use machines, and since they are already a big brand in the industry they don't really give a shit about how their tobacco tastes or smokes.

if you think i'm joking, i'm not. AF was my absolute favorite for a year. then it died, now i smoke nakhla because it is always good to me.

I had the same exact experience with AF. It was harsh when there apparently wasn't enough heat, which made me think I was crazy. The perfect heat for it I have found is one newly lit CH-QL and two half burnt CH-QLs haha.

I'm so sick of the crappy heat management with AF.

well from what i've tried from havana wasn't bad at all. it was thick smoke, good flavors (not AMAZING but good) and lasted awhile. the only problem is that it's dyed either fire engine red, or breast cancer pink. which is disgusting to me.

i tried havana strawberry margarita and power bull (red bull)
