Default Good apple (not anise!) shisha?

So a few days ago a friend of mine gave me a barely used 250g tub of AF double apple. I asked him why and he said the flavor was off and that maybe I'd like it. Sat down with a bowl last night and took a pull of it and promptly drowned in black licorice death. I like the flavor of anise, but I was really looking forward to an apple flavor. Not to mention that the double apple is just an overkill of anise flavor.

Are there any actual good apple flavored shishas or am I doomed to be taunted by the anise lurking behind every container of 'apple' tobacco?

Tangiers Lucid Yellow Apple. That's the best one in my opinion, and that' after quite a bit of searching. It's a very strong and sweet apple taste, and this is the only lucid flavor that doesn't have a caramelized undertone.

If you're looking for a more tart apple, I'd suggest Al Falkher Golden Esk. Apple. There was a thread about this yesterday as well. Other apples like Bahrani(y?) are still anise flavored but it takes a back seat to those like Double apple.

The Bahrain apples usually have another spice involved as well.

Salloum makes a great Bahrain apple and Desi Merli makes a couple great apple flavours. Other then that I haven't had much that I thought was note worthy that didn't have an anise like taste.

Af two apples has more anise than all other DA combined.
Try the AF golden ESK and golden Bahraini or Tangiers apple or Layalina ESK

I like Romman Apple a lot.

NOT romman double apple. I think anything with more than one apple in it magically transforms into anise. Go figure.

Laylinas Bahraini Apple has no anise taste, very sweet and replicates the exact taste of biting into a fresh red apple.

I dont think Hookah John has it anymore. Its not on his website that I saw. And for a bit he only had a couple of flavors. Maybe he phased it out?
