Default AF Soft Black

Does anyone know where to find this anymore? A few months ago it was everywhere but only in the kilo and at the time I was a little skeptical. But now I would really like to try some and can't find it anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hookahset still has it. But you might want to email them first to make sure.

While I greatly appreciate you finding it at hookahset and providing the link if anyone knows of any place else to get it I would be greatly appreciated since I would rather avoid dealing with hookahset if possible

Sorry, I don't know of any place reputable right now. I am hoping that someone else picks this and possibly some more traditional tobaccos up. The Kilo I bought will run out eventually and then I will be sad.

It's like smokable awesomeness.

Honestly, it's not as scary as you're probably thinking. It's mild, slightly sweet, with a strong dark complexity to it.

If it's not red, sugary and dripping with glycerin, I don't want to smoke it.

That I can tell since i've been smoking it for like 12 years. First I should tell you that decent tobacco dies not taste like cigarettes. Cigarettes and good tobacco have about as much in common as spam has with an aged Wagyu steak. So be open to real, quality tobacco remember that some of the good stuff is mild.

Anyway, Soft Black is tastes a mix of mellow molasses, figs and decent tobacco ( think the mellower North African or Turkish type stuff). It's not very strong at all but it is complex and gives a very pleasant smoke when you want to kick back and chill.

Thanks Hajo, Now I want it even more then I did before and can't get any here in the states. Luckily I should have that sample coming from you via Adam shortly. Thanks again for this wonderful opportunity.

Yeah soft black is pretty melow...Its about as strong as regular Nak imo and just as smooth with nice flavor similar to a black cavendish...I like to mix it with khan el khalili to give it some kick and more flavor great combo

Just ordered a kilo of this stuff -- want to give it a try before I try out DM. Probably will be interested in pawning off 600-800g of the stuff if some of you want to try it out. Will post when it arrives..

Right now, I think the only place to get it online is the link I posted upthread.
And it's only in kilos.

I can't wait to try it. This statement made me want to even more.

I spoke to my local guy, should have it in two weeks. I know there were rumors of smaller sizes but those were false, if the price is decent I will pick some up and figure something out for as many curios hp'ers as possible. I don't want to over promise, this guy always comes through but 2 weeks can turn into 3 or 4.

Just so you guys know, if you can't identify and pull out flavors in tobacco, this will just taste like assorted dark spice tones in the back of your throat. To really appreciate it try rolling with some flavored DMs, or pick up a pipe/try some cigars. Just expand your flavor palette a bit. Or just tank through the kilo, then you'll probably have a solid idea of all the flavor profiles in the tobacco :3

Danny over at hookahset hooked me up. Came pretty quick. I'd be interested in splitting it up for those who want to take a crack at it -- can an HP admin PM me on how I might be able to do that and be in harmony w/ forum rules? I don't think I have enough posts to qualify for a "For Sale" thread...
