Default Question about AF Two Apples

I just bought a 250g package of AF Two Apples, dated May 2007, if thats important, and I noticed that in the smell of the shisha, and the taste much more resembled licorice than any of the other double apples I've tried, is this consistent with the AF Two Apples or has anyone heard anything about a weird batch from Al Fakher, or is it just how it tastes, Its good, just not what I expected.

AF double apple is supposed to smell like licorice. it's the anise that's in it. It should be normal, but you never know..

AF two apples is a great flavor.Some folks don't care for the anise flavor but there's alot more to this flavor. It a pretty complex taste, imo.

It's disgusting.

If there ever was a flavor to be condemned, it should be Double Apple.

Thanks for the info guys, I'm just used to the Al Ajamy Double Apple, which I really enjoyed, which is much lighter on the anise.

both have a pretty strong anise flavor and actually taste similar, but The AF has a slightly stronger green apple flavor.But to answer your question, I think nahkla may have a slightly sltronger anise flavor.

double apple is normally made with anise flavor (liquorice) and is mostly disgusting for me. anise flavor makes me throw up so i cant smoke it. single apple usually doesnt have the anise flavor.

The only two apples flavor I have had experience with is nakhla. The licorice smell is normal don't be deterred. The awesomeness with two apples lies within the smoke. Keep your mind off of licorice and try to focus on the warm apple undertones. It is a really awesome flavor once you get to know it . Abu told me about two apples and the whole apple undertone thing.

Usually when i smoke AF two apples, i mix it with a little AF mint and it takes away the taste of the anise as i noticed.

for those of you looking for instant gratification from a flavor, the anise flavor of 2apples can be intimidating. But for many of us who are willing to explore such flavors, we tend to find a complex and layered flavor which can be quite pleasant to smoke.But of course, it's not for everyone.

I actually tried AF two apples with a mix in of some nakhla mint the other day, and it was spectacular.

to be honest, if you grew up with anise candy, or liquorice root candy, then youll love it...for the rest of us who didnt, it may be disgusting. i dont know if its a complex flavor, i really want to like it...but my body fights it to the end.

There's nothing complex about it.

Kashmire Peach is a complex one, if you ask me. Craving it.

i just had some nakhla douple apple at a hookah bar. with not enough heat it was very good, with liquorice being the undertone, however with more heat the taste of apple went away completely and it turned extremely gross

I too find AF Double Apple quite enjoyable regardless of the ever present liquorice flavour. I must admit though that the anise does tend to get a bit much if I smoke it too often so I limit my AF DA smoking to every 5th or 6th bowl.

that could be becasue when hookah started become a main stream thing in the ME, meaning it was at cafes and homes and they started using mollasses tobacco about the only flavor you could find was nakhla double apple, then mix fruits, then some others. This was like the late 80's early 90's. Now, if you can think of a flavor there is at least one brand that makes it.
Double apple is still the original for me though, however, I have moved over to more of AF single apple.
