Default i must admit

we know that af grape has a huge following, yet there is alot of talk about it being either the best shisha in the world but tainted with this "ketchup" thing. now, i've alwys stayed away from this discussion, basically because i hate grape, i'm more of a two apples person side of the fence person. (check every post i've ever made regarding the subject, i hate grape) latley i've been bored with smoke so i tried a 50g pack of af grape, it was ok for the change, but then i was feeling adventurous and dove into mizo grape, it's been 3 straight days and i'm going to pack a bowl right now, all i can say is its............................................... ...........





























it's











it's



i can't find the right word, but for me to smoke anything 4 days straight says alot, what do you regualr grape smokers think of mizo grape vs af grape?

the mizo grape is an amazing flavor. I've been singing it's praises since it arrived on the market. I liken it to more of a ''dry'' grape flavor, whereas the AF is much sweeter and stronger. I have'nt tried the new batches of AF grape but have heard it's more in line w/the old stuff, which was to die for.

I wouldnt know about the straight grape (John knows why haha) but i got a 50g box of the af grape with mint dated 09 from hookah john and it was a great grape flavor I am more than likely going to get a 250g of the Af grape within the next couple of days and maybe be able to shed some light on the 09 dated af grape

Not if it works that way
But I prefer Mizo Grape to AF grape and have been wanting to buy a pack of el basha grape to give Mizo a run. I like that Mizo tastes more natural to me than any other grape I've tried and also am very glad its unwashed.

ive only had AF grape in 06 (I believe) and it was fantastic! but ever since the bad batches i have stayed away, but now word is going around saying their flavours are getting back to normal. as for Mizo grape.. havent tried it.. due to my bad experience with regular grape i have shunned Nakhla off and looking for small samples of mizo to show me the light again.

but when i hustle up the cash im deffinantly going to my local store to get some AF grape and find some mizo

All the 2009+ AF grape I tried recently have been fantastic. I even notice the cut is improved vs how they were chopping it to shreds.

I love AF grape, it's been one of my staples for years. The mizo grape for me is very similar, but with a little bit more tang to it. I think I'd describe it as a black currant flavor. Definitely in love with it, and it's probably my favorite mizo I've tried. (Although, I've heard lemon mizo tastes like yellow gatorade, in which case, grape will have a run for the top choice.)

I used to love AF Grape, Mizo grape is pretty good. I just can't find anything to replace my 2006 AF grape.

I've had batches of AF Grape from 06- early 09 and none of them were great. Mizo Grape is much better.

Mizo grape is fantastic. No ketchup, juicy, thick smoke.
Definitely one of my favorites. Hookahset messed up & gave me two of them... When I ordered none... Which was perfect since I was low :P.

It gets old though when you smoke too much of it. Lemme know if you experience the same after... ehh 7 days

Mizo Grape is good, but to me personally it does not compare to AF Grape. I have bought some batches of AF grape that weren't like they were before, taste wise that is. But Its back to normal and is still on the list of my favorite flavours

John - have you tried AF Golden Grape? It's excellent. The order IMO is...

AF Golden Grape > Mizo Grape > AF Grape

I like all three, however.

Mizo Grape is good but it's BORING .. IDK how to describe this .. After smoking it in a daily basis for two weeks, I hated it so much that I never tried it again since then.

wouldn't that be the same for if you ate steak for 2 weeks though?

a few days i can agree with, but back to back for 2 weeks is enough to put you off it.

I've had AF Grape, AF Golden Grape and Mizo Grape, but I must have packed the Mizo wrong as the taste wasn't there at all, so for now I'm going to say golden grape is my favourite of all 3, but need to have a proper Mizo session soon

You can't compare steaks with shisha .. it's like comparing Apples with Oranges. I've smoked Nakhla DA for more than 2 years (in a daily basis) without any problems.

your right John. Mizo has a stronger smell than flavor, but I like the subtle flavor of the mizo. And for the record, AF golden grape is a sweet red grape. While the grapes we're discussing are a white grape. 2 different animals altogether.
