Default Just picked up some Expired Al Fakher

We didn't realize it was expired till we started smoking it. It expired in August of last year. Would this cause the taste to be verrry bland? We were smoking Honey, which didnt seem like it would have much flavor anyways, but we dont wanna do a bad review based on a faulty product.

Any thing I should worry about this?

Expired last year? Meaning the date on the box said it was made in Aug. 2007?
The two year guideline is just that. A guideline. Most brands are packged well enough that they'll last long beyond that.

This!
Also, rumour has it honey is not the strongest of flavors.

Any time that I've smoked honey it has been very flavorful for me. It's very good mixed with AF vanilla.

To me, Honey has always been a weaker flavour unless mixed with something. And the same thing happend to me the other day, I picked up a 50g box of AF Pipe flavour and the shit went "bad" last Jan. Lol, still tasted good to me though.

I feel really bad man... I wanted to try Al Fakher since alot of people say its pretty good, and im off to a bad start, I think were gonna pick up some DA since people seem to swear by that. And Mint. Any other suggestions?

I've always thought their grape was pretty fantastic, although it's changed a bit from when I first had it. Maybe that's just me. And I thought their honey flavor was on the subtle side, but not flavorless, although it's strange that it would expire like that. I've had way out-dated stuff that smoked perfectly!

Golden Esk. Apple is always a good choice. And you know some of us here are kinda nutty about Soft Black.
