Default Al Fakher Apple vs. Double Apple

Hey guys,

I got myself a 50g pack of AF Apple yesterday. The guy had no DA and I wanted to try both before purchasing a tub. Today I got the DA but haven't fired it up yet. Anyone who tried both can fill me up here?

The AF Apple as I tried it is very smooth, sweet and creamy.

the double apple (depending on which brand) has a slight Anise taste. I HATE black licorice, but I LOVE DA

AF's apple may have a hint of cinamon and is sweeter. AF DA has a good amount of anise (yansoon) in it.

Yeah the AF Two Apple has some anise flavor to it. It's a good strong flavor. I have about 85g of it up for trade in the trade forum if you are interested in more.

Thanx Wharbone but it would cost a leg and an arm to ship it to Egypt lol ..... Anyways I got now a 50 gm pack of Apple and another of Double Apple. I will still have to try Double Apple and the one I will like more will go ahead and get a 250g pack since it saves more (costs 4 times as much as the 50g pack)

Mattathayde, it's a matter of taste, I myself like the sweet candyish taste.

Finally tried DA, and lucky me I only bought a sample because it sucks big time . Anise is overpowering the apple, making me sick to my stomach and it's very harsh, unlike the cool smooth apple.

Funny you'd have to import AF as I always assumed they sold it in Egypt. In any case, since you are in Egypt you should get Shh 'el-beled (it's from Tunisia but i've bought in Cairo) which is much better then maossel from the gulf.

As to apple AF is alright but I think that Al Emir is better and Salloum Bahreny the best apple around (it's made in Egypt and very cheap to boot!)

As to double apple i'd say that AF Bahrainin or Afzal Silver Fox are the best. They both are quite different but very good.

I think DA has too much anise flavor in it for my taste..I haven't tried regular apple though yet, I'll get some if the anise flavor isn't there, or isn't as noticeable.

I do not import AF. I buy it off the local market in Egypt. Never heard of Sheikh el balad, where did u buy it in Cairo? Hussein market?

if you have DA and you think it has too much anise in it mix it with other flavors it will cover it up pretty well

i really enjoy the apple... tastes like baked apples/caramel... i love the sweet flavors. The double apple from af i threw away after smoking it twice, just because it was that overpowering. I even let it sit out and stink up my apt for a little and it still tasted like black licorice, so i say forget da, and just stick with the sweet yummy goodness of af apple

I bought some at the Khan al-Khalili but it wasn't hard to get. It's great if you like the old style black moassel. Lots of DA over does the anise.

I definitely get a taste of anise in the AF Apple. I usually end up mixing it with Cinnamon and Vanilla to knock it down a little and even then it comes through. I'm trying to find an apple w/o any anise at all

[FONT=Palatino Linotype]This is PakistaniMasty here - man I bought a 250gram tub of AlFakher Double Apple and hated it. It had no apple taste so I aired it out for a day went back to it and it was still the same. I hate it I will probably never buy it again. Your best bet is to probably go with single apple. From what I have heard it actually tastes like an apple. Idunno man the way Al Fakher has been lately I might just stop purchasing that brand all together. Wich is sad because it used to be one of my top Shisha Brands =([/FONT]

Hey PakistaniMasty. Salaam, sister.

Well exactly that's my opinion. I bought two 50g packs, one Apple and one Double Apple. I loved Apple which is Apple flavour, sweet, smooth and candyish a little bit. Double Apple is very bad indeed, no regrets coz I only bought a 50g pack. I liked Apple so much and I bought a 250g tub and it is going nice.
