Wow. Yeah, different brand for sure, but did they claim it was AF and have different pics or something? If they did, you should probably leave some unhappy feedback haha. That's unfortunate stuff. But hey, if it smokes well, it's all good right?

I'm curious what did they advertise the product as since Ebay does not allow tobacco sale on their site. If you are not happy with your purchase I suggest you contact the seller and ask for a refund (assuming he intentionally misslead you) and if he refuses to cooperate you can threaten to report him to Ebay.

you can sell tobacco on ebay as long as the actual tobacco is "free", and the packaging is claimed as "collectors items". so the actual value of the purchase is the box.

it's weird, but it works. i got a carton of djarum blacks on ebay last month.

Than I'm sorry. I don't know.
Off: I think that tobbaco free tobbaco is good for nothing. Becaulse in the first 20 minutes the taste and the smoke is perfect but after the 20-30 minute3s the taste is dissapired.

Default Al fakher from Turkey?

In some threads here about AF fakes i found photos of exactly same packages i bought now. Somebody here writes that they are original, but there is difference.

At first look: pure original AF 250g box is SQUARE from every side. Those are FLAT.

When you opened this flat package, inside is can similar to original AF, but cap is differend. You know, original AF 250g cap dont fit too much good and you must close package cerefully to avoid self-opening. These "possibly fake" can caps fit better. There is other weird clue on the bottom of can - web adress of maker: www.sekeroglu.com.tr And for sure this is not UAE product!!!

Print, logo, etc. are exactly same

Bag inside is exactly same as "100% legal AF"

But inside bag... something is wrong. It smell like Al Fakher and tastes like Al Falher, but tobacco si very, very bad cutted, full of tenacles and other garbage. There is also important lack of Al Fakher legendary "wetness". And mint is artifically colored to green! Original AF mint must be red.

Summary, it tastes like Al Fakher, but you will miss AF duration, due to lack of molas. It is not bad shisha, and here is very cheap. IMHO this is weird batch of original AF, maybe for german market, in some way crippled by repackaging or wrong warehousing. Maybe they must reduce amount of molas due some stupid law, so they use second grade tobacco too...

Buy it, but try to handle cheap price.
