Fair enough. Just trying to come up with a reasonable explanation as to why one of the largest hookah tobacco manufacturers would make what seems to be a very noticeable change to their product.

Airing out did nothing for my AF grape except make my house smell like rancid grapes. And now I am finding the watermelon is having issues. The tub we just received is leaving a funky aftertaste. It's a good thing this is a big industry, it's making it so much easier to dump AF completely.

i figured all this "new AF cut" hoopla was a bit overblown until i got some myself. just got a pile of 50g samples from HC and all the al fakher i got is from april 08 and it is worse than i expected. the cut is really really fine. they all smell great (including grape) and the coconut i'm smoking now tastes fine--but that throat tickle on the exhale is something i'm not easily going to be able to ignore. oh well. i guess ill experiment a bit with different bowls and packs and see if i can get something that works.

Some of the new stuff is peachy - the Vanilla is breathtaking. The peach doesn't have the tickle, but unless I put it in the Vortex... LOL - my hookah looks like it's bleeding (the juice heats up and drips out the bowl, thru the ashtray and down the outside of the stem). Watermelon is giving me issues - even overpacking as Jilly suggested doesn't ease the tickle to fully smoke it. Makes it better, but not easy. *sigh* Just ordered a 5 pack of Golden flavors - I'm praying to the Hookah Gods that they are fine. I liked that Golden Grape and Rose.

So is March '08 the date of Danger? That is to say, when Af changed up their product?

the 50 gram of grape i got was pretty bad, i think the " ketchup" is over kill on the word to use but yes it has that smell, i aired it out for like 4-5 hours yesterday and its better, still smells bad but better, o well i got a bunch of other stuff to smoke and the jan 08 apple and watermellon are ok and the nov 07 coconut seems ok (dont have much to go on since it was the first af i got) but over all i can see that its not what it used to be.

guess i need to see if i can pack tangiers right with my phunnel to night and then might just have to stick with that and SB
