Is soft black washed? I try some, but don't want to dish out on a kilo and not like it.

I tried some Peach this weekend smelled great, but boy it scratched my throat. The bubblegum was very good. I might be getting some new batches of the grape apparently its good again.

Definitely Mint, dude.

Be careful though since AF has had some weird batches of tobacco, meaning that some smelled like Ketchup or BBQ sauce.
I guess the only thing to tell you is to try to smell the box and see if you can pick up any scent whatsoever of what's inside.

I don't recommend AF Guava, btw, I got a 50g pack of it and it tasted like Chemicals.

If you are new to al fakher, then try the double apple in a 50g pack (although I have been told that 250g+ packs are the best ones tobget the full flavour)

definitely get some mint though and I highly recommend the mint. If you add a little mint to those flavours it will give a very nice, smooth, cool smoke.

Melon with some mint is one of my favourite combinations so i recommend that to everyone

I would recommend ..

Mint .. for sure!
Double Apple (If you really like licorice)
AF2 if you REALLLLY like licorice (or use it as a mixer)
Cinnamon (good alone or as a mixer)
Orange (I am not a citrus fan but this is pretty good as a mixer for me, but also by itself for others)
Lemon/Mint (great by itself or as a mixer)
Peach (great by itself or as a mixer)

.. and if they ever get it back to the original recipe (rumor is they are about back) da' Grape is da' bomb!

Now think of all the blends you can do!??
Cinnamon/Peach
Peach/Lemon/Mint
Grape/Mint
Cinnamon/Orange
Orange/Peach
Orange/Lemon/Mint

Damn I guess I must have gotten a bad 50g of Guava then because mine was utterly disgusting. It smells good, but tastes like Chemicals.

The good thing is that this means the ketchup is gone.
