Softblack doesn't need to be smoked without foil. That would just suck. It's much wetter than Zag from what I have tried and seen, and Zag tastes very one dimensional (heavy tobacco), Soft Black is more along the lines of Desi in flavor terms, but more heavy tobacco than Spice and light fruit notes.

I wouldn't think about doing that, it's messy and probably breaks some type of regulation, however, the consumer will be free to do that, and i think it's a great idea. still not sure why they are bringing it only in kilos.

I'd buy a 50 gram, simply because it's most just alright.

Oh wait, i forgot about the AF cut. Nah, nevermind, I think I'll pass.

I'd be down to try it at 250g but a kilo is too much for me to throw down on.

I've been interested in this flavor for a long time. I have never had the opportunity to actually try it.

Looking at their main site it seems to me that it is only available in a kilo. I'd maybe be willing to do this because I myself would like to try this stuff.

Actually I am very familiar with AF Soft Black and i've been smoking it for years. In my photo album I have pic of a 250g box of the stuff if you guys are interested.

Also, it doesn't taste at all like Zaghloul although since so many people here insist on smoking Zaghlouol as if it was tombac I can see why some here don't like it. Of course smoking black moassel like tombac and saying you don;t like it is a bit like broiling a steak for 3 hours and saying you've tried steak and don't care for it.

Basically Soft Black is a very high quality product that is mildly sweet, very complicated and heavy. It's not nearly as spicy or as strong as the black moassels made by Nakhla and can provide a very pleasent session if you set it up properly. It also is a fantastic mixer and I typically buy 5 kilos per year.

Naturally those of you that like SB/Fantasia type candied products won't like it. If however you like high quality tobacco with a bit of sweetness, a nice body and a richer taste profile you'll love Soft Black. It's not like anything else on the market.

If anyone that is interested I can post my favorite mixes for use with Soft Black.
