Did you mix the tobacco up to get the juices evenly distributed before you packed the bowl?

Also, did you pack too high?

Ugh personally I HATE AF cherry with a passion, it tastes like old cherry cough syrup! lol :P

Make sure you have a clean hookah. Next, make sure you're packing the bowl right. Also, what kind of coals are you using? Some coals will fuck up the taste of your tobacco.

yeah I'm using quick lights but I have been using them for a while with no problems. I tried smoking it on my friends hookah and same thing. Like after 10 minutes of smoking it tastes literally like tobacco. I moved the coals around too to make sure I wasn't burning the tobacco but no luck. :T

When i had it i really liked it.

I didn't take a commercial medicine taste, it was a sweet cherry flavor, the fruit flavors are the best, IMO.

What is the package/production date? It might be old tobacco or a bad batch.

I personally love AF's cherry - IMO the best cherry I have had (but Nakhla, but that was a STRONG cough drop taste, but good).

With QL's are you lighting them and letting them turn completely red before placing on the bowl?

Light them and let them get fully red hot, place on hookah and let it sit for 10 mins so the bowl heats up and then enjoy your hookah session. If not I would say maybe you got a bad batch.

the production date was may 2006. i like just bought this last week too.

yeah with the quicklights i am letting all the silver tabs burn off. this is basically the only flavor which i have had problems with in the past year.. i think i really got a bad batch the tobacco smells great but honestly there is just no flavor. ive had other people smoke it too which they have said the same.

Yeah its a completely old batch.

Usually, shisha tobacco usually gets expired 2 years from the production date.

AF forgets to flavor its tobacco nowadays... just bought a tub of my precious AF Golden Strawberry and the taste was barely there. Called the company that sold it and they said to contact the AF rep if I had any complaints... boo. But do try and contact the company to at least let them know what is going on.
