If I recall correctly, the Fumari flavor by Fumari is a triple apple blend with no anise in it.

Al fakher also came out with a second version recently to their double apple. The taste is there but its not as overwhelming as the old double apple they had. You could give it a shot

Are any of those flavors anise. I'm pretty sure I have a box of the single apple on my shelf.

I have a bag of DA from a Jar (the jar got smashed ) and there is not licorice flavor any longer. It kind of just smells like faint apple.

Okay, I'll have to dig through my stash and see if I still have that nak apple flavor. I might've given it away with a hookah I sold since I really didn't care for the apple flavors.

In other news, however, I've smoked the Golden AF apple three times since I started this thread and I think I've grown a taste for it! I'm smoking it right now and really enjoying it. So long as I don't pull it out thinking, "here I go, I'm going to smoke some apple flavored tobacco and..."

I've finally got my hands on a variety of different Apple flavors and AF 'Apples' flavor is delicious and actually does taste like apples. Well, apple juice really.

Thanks for all the tips folks.

Totally depends on the Brand. AF is just licorice. Nakhla is a tiny bit of dry apple and licorice. Salloum is lots of tasty apple and medium spices and anise. Layalina is strong tasty apple with medium spices and anise.

I really don't know why people swear by Nak double apple, it's one of the not so great DA's available now. I like apple in my double apple, and lots of it, like it should be, and salloum and layalina do a great job of it.

Well, there are. Hear me out on this one. I have tried every Al Amir flavor out there, most taste like soap. BUT, there are 2 flavors that totally rock, one of them being Apple. No anise, let me say it again NO ANISE. Just pure apple flavored goodness. The other good Al Amir flavor is their White Grape, when AF screwed up their grape batches and substituted spoiled ketchup for shisha I went looking for a replacement. Let me tell ya I found it in Al Amir. Pick some up and try it, you wont be disappointed. Just dont try any other flavor though, because they are tasteless.

To me, double apple tastes like licorice. And I love licorice... and it has some other undertones that I can't put my finger on... Never a menthol taste.

^^ Yup, to me NDA tastes like licorice and nothing else. I had no hints of apple what so ever. It's not all that bad though..unless you're looking for something that actually tastes like apple.

IMHO it's more of a floral flavor than anything.

I'm really not trying to talk down to you when I say this, but when its called Salloum bahreny, I see the bahreny and think Bahrani, like the country...then I wonder how its egyptian apple, that being said I've never smoked it or seen the box so I wonder how they chose to write it!

esk apple is not just apple, I agree with Zen on it being floral in nature, but I would say not quite the same flavor as you would get in Kashmir.

As for menthol flavor in DA, I've noticed when cheaper companies make DA, they like to overkill the anise thinking thats all you need, the concentrated anise seems to come out with a cooler flavor and seem somewhat "minty" even though it isnt.
Nakhla Da is enjoyable because it has anise, but also not too much where it isnt the main focus of the flavor.
