Eh to be honest, I think it's fake, I currently own Al Fahker Plum, Purple Container, with it packaged in a ziplock bag inside the the cup container.

However if it smokes good and tastes good, I wouldn't care much, as long as you didn't pay a buttload for it.

But vote is it's a knock off of Al Fahker Plum.

I would be more worried about the coloring myself, and the fact that AF almost always has production and expiration dates printed somewhere on their containers. Mines on the top of the lid.

you sure? i think it may just be 3-4 year old AF. It would be expired but maybe still good, maybe even better than what they produce today.

OP, try it and let us know how it is.

fake AF is fine to smoke. The bulk of it is made by the same folks who run the Al Fakher trading Co.

If it's old than it's REALLY damn old. That's the standard font for all the fakes I've seen.

Mm, looks like the AF that my local place carries. I'm pretty confident that their stuff is legit. They're a huge importer for almost all of the local bars. All of which would lend to thinking this is probably legit too. In fact, all of the Kilo AF containers I've ever seen look similar. Then again, I don't buy kilos so maybe my memory is failing me.
