it depends on what you want you like. if you like clouds with your double apple then go for the AF but if you like traditional DA with probably the best flavor IMO i would go for nakhla. But to be honest with you its personal preference. My fav is the Nak

the 200gm, $8 one is "AF 2" (its different from af two apples from what i hear)

havent tried it yet, but i do love and prefer AF two apples over nakhlas version.

AF 2 is good for a tiny bowl. 30min max. After that I hate it. Also seems like i can never get it to smoke right. The heat is so critical. With Nak DA throw on 3 coals, get nice bold flavor and decent clouds. I do like AF 2 but only 30 mins worth the flavor gets so annoying and kills my mood for the rest of the night. The Nak i can smoke 3 bowls in a row and never get enough. So Nak is my favorite now im just waiting for a DA mizo line

Ive got to agree, the nakhla double apple is far better than the AF. Especially if you can get the ones from a can or a jar, i find them to be better than the ones from the can!!

Here is a quick review of the Al Fakher Double Apple. I didn't want to take away from it, so I made the review quick because it is a good flavor. But if I had to choose one or the other I would say Nakhla. But true to my video, I would smoke either one of these brands version of double apple.

I smoke 2 bowls a day and 80% of the time i smoke double apple or double apple and mint. I have 2 brands of DA in my stash right now and its AF & Nahkla. So which do i prefer? I would say i prefer to smoke on the Nakhla because its got that more authentic taste to it. AF is nice, really good mixed with a tiny but of AF mint... but if i had to choose one... Nakhla would get my vote!!

If you get Nakhla you'll regret it, just wait and see.
If you want a massive headache and a very light flavour then choose Nakhla.
It's considered very traditional, which may be true, but it is horrible.
If you do decide to go for Nakhla, get peach or apricot (those ones are the better ones). Don't go for double apple like everyone here is suggesting unless you want something that doesn't even taste like apples lol.

AF isn't the best either but it's far better than Nakhla. You'll get bigger clouds, a juicier flavour (yes some of the flavours are a bit artificial so just watch some reviews first).

I can't speak for Mizo, I've never tried it and heard only good things...then again those good things are being said by the same people who think Double Apple tastes like apples LOL.

Why do you have to choose? I always have both in my stash. The AF gives better clouds and is not as strong on anise. Nak has that heavy buzz and anise flavor...and I love it. Some people get a nicotine head ache with Nakhla but that will recede with time as you build a bit of tolerance. Get both, alternate, mix...repeat as necessary.

also, I hate Nakhla peach. There is a strong perfume nastiness in with the peach flavor and it ruins it.
