Default Harsh Al Fhaker flavors

Can you guys help me name the flavors that seemed to be harsh from Al Fhaker so I can know to stay away for them? For me it would be Grape, Watermelon, and Coconut.

I had a batch of Grape and Mint that was absolutely horrible. Every time I smoked it it tasted like hell and didn't tickle but just seemed to irritate like hell. I couldn't even take tiny puffs, it just felt wierd

Al fakher produced on year 2008 sucks in about 80%.
Batches before that year, and from 2009 are good IMO.
I just didn't like guava flavour.

this post has perfect timing, when af hits it hits, right now i was about to post my current session with af. af orange, something i opened months back and hated. there was actually a shortage of af orange in the us for the last few months as well, however, i finally saw some available and made a mix (thanks to the guys at afo since they made me this mix) orange mango and mint, all af, it's really a great mix, but what i wanted to point out is the smell of the orange, it's just like orange popcicle. i still haven't tried it alone but i am doing that mix i mentioned as i did last night. these are all 50g packs too. it just seems that af maybe coming back imo, not 100% confident. I am wondering if anything has changed at their production level. it's hard to get a straight answer since its not made in the US and the distributors here, just distribute. i will ask about it, i am supposed to see my cousin from sierra tonight and will prepare him this mix as well.

I have not had any AF that was bad yet. I had their DA (two apples) and it tasted kinda meh, but still decent. I just gave it away cause I like Nahkla DA better. I really do love AF peach and AF mint. Its not a solid brand but its worth the risk for those 2 flavors IMO.

I had a harsh batch of DA. I don't know what the production date was though, it was only a 50g pack.

just got a 1kg of af cherry produced in the UAE, sep,2009 and i am pleased to report it smokes very well. it does have a tickle that is extremely light and goes after 1-2 mins, but nothing major like previous af flavours i have smoked. also the cut is larger and more chopy, and just seems to produce more smoke. the flavour seems less artificial, and the flavour is dripping with juice. hopefully af is making a cum back

also, try swapping out the mango for melon too, that's what they did for me on out 2nd bowl.

so last night i tried orange straight, and it was great, I still need to figure the best packing method as i know it can get more smoke, but the flavor was really just like an orange popcicle and not only that it was very close to tangiers orange soda. could af be copying tangiers? doubt it but there's a new conspiricy theory.

The last 250g of Al Fakher Berry that I had with 3 Kings coals was particularly horrid. (Now before everyone jumps down my throat and says that its because of the coals, I have enjoyed Al Fakher before where there have been no problems with quick-lights)

watermelon, i have tried this flavor numerous times, several 50g packs, and 1 or 2 250g tubs. and EVERY time it has killed my throat, tried ever bowl possible, packing method, heat distribution, but always ends the same with me coughing like hell. i really like the flavor, but will never get to really enjoy this flavor.

AF Mint is awesome though, so is Vanilla.

I have a couple of kilos of AF that is harsh and requires special attention. The way I've found is to smoke it in a vortex bowl, slightly underpacked. If it's still harsh, I pack it down with my thumb and use a little more heat (3 coals + windcover) and it smokes like a champ. My batches are all from various months of the year 2008.

I've got a 50g sample of Al Fakher Guava, and it was horrible. It had the worst Chemical taste to it! It was like spraying all purpose cleaner in my mouth.

I even tried mixing it with some Hookah Hookah Guava and it just destroyed the Hookah Hookah.

It smells normal, but damn that taste is nothing but Chemicals.

I loved AF guava. i smoked it both out of an egytian bowl and vortexes. vortex bowl is the one for AF IMO. just need to know how to set it up i find starting it with 3 coals for first 10-15 mins and then 2 coal with a wind cover on and off then 40 -50 mins in add coal number 3 with a wind cover works evry time. also sprinkel it in to the spiral

This makes me want to try other AF flavors, I had ordered Watermelon, Grape, and Mint a while back. Mint is the only flavor out of those that I still smoke. I'll probably go by my local store and see what kind of flavors they have in stock.
