Default AF Vanilla

I finally got the AF vanilla I ordered a while back and it is some weird stuff. It's dyed red, smells exactly like coconut and tastes the same until about 30 minutes into the session it tastes sort of chocolate/mocha/coffee like. It seems to me that they couldn't have gotten it any more wrong. On the other hand H-H and AW vanilla are great products that actually taste like they should.

AF Vanilla tastes like cake to me. It isn't a true vanilla flavor, that's for sure. Al Waha Vanilla is still the best vanilla IMO.

Very strange Hajo.I agree w/the "dyed red", but everything else sounds nothing like the AF vanilla I've had. I remember it to have a very confectionary/vanilla cake mix flavor. I wonder if it's a different batch for the european market?

I've never had this flavor, but I've had AW vanilla, didn't like it too much. I think I'm gonna try out AF's.

That's very odd, especially how I hear about people raving about how good AF Vanilla.

I know this is off topic, but what is the BEST vanilla shisha to date? I've been looking for a good vanilla mixer for a while. Orange+vanilla=orange cream=deliciousness-ity!

I've been wanting to do this mix for a while ever since I smoked AW Orange Cream. Eh I mean don't get me wrong, its a good flav...But its only good after the first bowl and after that, its not as great since its a very weak flavor imo.

I've had the Al Fakher Vanilla before and I must say I didn't care for it as a stand-alone smoke. Yes, it did taste like vanilla, but it's better left as a mixer.

Orange and Vanilla, you say? Seems like it would need some tang, you know? Both are really sweet flavors.

Hehe yup :P

But I have tried two orange shishas too far (AF and Fusion) they were either too artificial or too weak to taste anything.

But, I have smelled a tin of SB Orange and it smells like a real orange. This shisha smells more sour then sweet, which is the exact kind of orange I'm looking for

I'm so gonna buy a tin of that stuff when I find a good Vanilla

Many will say AW vanilla, but I don't think so. I didn't like it. Layalina's Vanilla is..eh at best.

I thought Layalina's was too candy sweet and lost flavor rather fast. Nakhla vanilla is good, but not 100% vanilla.... I stand by my favorite Vanilla of all time.. Al Waha!

Hmm AW or Layalina?

I don't like AW at all...Bleh I hate the cut of the shisha and the shishas I have come across from them don't smoke great to me.

I'm looking for a vanilla that actually tastes like it without any candyness to it. Hopefully I can find it soon :P

I don't know if the pack of AF vanilla I got is bad or if it's just for the EU market. I did swap a 250 gram from the U.S. so I guess i'll see.

Anyway, the most natural and flavourful vanillas are Desi Merli, H-H and AW. I can't say any one is better then the others but they are all different and very high quality.
