Thankfully I'm not the only one this has happened to. I thought by paying more for the golden label it would be much better. I was sorely wrong. Sry to hear that DMC.

If grape is supposed to be Al Fahker's flagship flavor, then I am severly dissapointed in the hype it is given.

Their apple flavor was by far a more complex and delicious flavor, much more bold than the grape-jam that was AF Grape.

Don't get me wrong, the grape flavor was decent, but the subtle flavor left much to be desired.

It's quite odd that these random bad batches keep popping up. All the AF shisha I have (including grape) was produced in Feb 2008 or later and I've not had any problems with bad batches so far....however my wife-to-be said something about the grape smelling like medicine while I was smoking it

There you go! Store credit is legit. Now you can use that money to buy a new tub of af. Or put it towards a new brand that doesn't have bad batches! That is some quality customer service right there.

Uh oh, brace yourself. Just in case you get a bad one. In the event that you do get a bad one. Let it acclimate for a while then give it a shot. I had a run in with some bad grape and after the acclimation it wasn't that bad. It was definatly a bearable smoke.

so I tried it and the outcome wasn't good at all. it smelt (to me) like nasty grape. So I thought I would give it a try and that was not smart. 2 minutes into the session I felt really sick and then I threw up right after.I still feel sick from that.so after I was done throwing up I put a bowl of SB strawberry and i still tasted that nasty grape so i had to take everything apart and clean it.i even cleaned my nonwashable hose because it was that bad. I threw it out right away.never again am i getting AF grape.not worth the risk lol
