It's true. I don't like the new cut and it definately burns easier. A phunnel with 3 Coco's burns it quick and it does indeed create the harsh 'tickle' at the back of the throat. Why the hell can't AF just keep things the same? It was fine before! Recipe changes, cut changes....what next?

I bought Berrys and Pineapple today, looked at the cut and was well different. The prod date was March 2008. Cut was smaller than usual and wasn't wet as much as the older packs taste was abit dull but smoke was big and thick. I'll have pics up later.

It still confuses me why they would make such a drastic change when it looks like there is no viable reason to do so. All I have heard so far is that is smokes far worse or the occasional "just about the same". If it is not improving the quality of the smoke there is no reason for the change. If profit is the reason I will be more than a bit un-happy.

This is sad...
but I heard depending on where you live, the AF maybe different. Like the UK members might still be getting good ol' AF while us americans could be getting the new cut.
Hopefully they go back to the old cut, because this stuff is starting to annoy the hell out of me.

I've found that the best way to pack any tobacco, especially Tangier's Tobacco and Al Fakher is to use an oyster fork.

It's stupidly easy to fluff up Al Fakher, even with the small cut.

oyster fork's help a bunch for packing, but the fluffing it up isn't most of our problems, it's not getting it clogged in the holes. i hate how i have to use a phunnel for AF 90% of the time now.

I'm very glad to see this thread because I was beginning to think I was the only one with these problems.

I've also noticed that because of the fine cut (and possibly the severe sogginess) the tobacco seems to take forever to heat up properly and I only start getting some decent clouds about 20 - 30 minutes into the session which is somewhat annoying.

I think we should all start raising our concerns at alfakher.com...
