Default WTF AF!?

i loaded a vortex of AF Esk. Apple, man did it smell good..... smell....

15 mins into the session and there is nooo taste, at all...

i had no problems w/ AF when i FIRST got my 3tubs, a month later and i just couldnt smoke it anymore, flavor was slowly fading away. i left my AF alone for about a month and i decided to load some today, man i shoulda stuck to my HH. im not surprised bc ive been seeing a lot more threads w/ AF problems lately.

its crazy how AF went from my 1st choice to my last. it has no taste but IT IS TICKLING the back of my throat to where it makes me want to gag. the smoke is nice but i care more about flavor now.

arent the golden AF flavors suppose to be top of the line??

im going to give this bowl 10 more mins., if no flavor...then its gotta GO-!

A lot of people are saying there are issues with the "new" cut. I have noticed the newer stuff I have does have that tingle problem. Some 50s I have I will never finish, just tired of fighting it. I've also moved on to others as my main stocking brands.

Al Fakher needs to be loaded differently now.

Sprinkle it past the top, then tap it down.

my AF watermelon came in a resealable bag, i switched it to the tub. Like I do with all my shisha, the rest of my stuff dont smoke like this. My Starbuzz, Fantasia, Hookah-Hookah smoke just fine. But the AF just bites back on my throat soo hard. I cant even tolerate smoking it for more than 2 minutes.

The exact same thing has happened to me. I put couple spoonfuls of apple juice concentrate in the 250 and mixed it with my hands and it improved a little. AF needs to up there apple game.

I tried the AF Golden Strawberry a while back. Needless to say, I wasn't impressed. At all.

I think AF has either gotten lazy, or stopped caring what customers really think and taking the cheap routes with their production.

I could be wrong and I will probably get killed by those who swear by it. In my opinion though, ITS GONE TO ABSOLUTE SHIT.

Seems like big difference about what people think of al fakher,.. My guess is that it is different setups and differet batches that is the major difference..
I have like 10 250 gram packages of al fakher double apple at home.. and it's abouit the only thing Ive smoked last 6 months ( cus I live in swden and we aint got much choice ) . It is hard to get the setup correct for al fakher..,. Really hard.. and yes sometimes I get really mad cus it doesnt seem to be logical.. but then .. I hit it.. right on spot..
And when you DO hit a al fakher ( especially DA flavour ) Thats when you know u are addicted to the lovely taste!!!!! Damn it smokes soooo good when executed propebly

I got my AF golden esk. apple 2 months ago from H-S.com. its an oct 2007 batch and it smokes great. I am however not familiar with the date at which AF "new batch" was entered into the market.This is also the first time i'm hearing about a prob with AF esk apple. I also have AF Golden Strawberry and AF watermelon. The watermelon by nature is a very strong flavour and is sure to tingle your throat if not loaded properly(it does tingle a little for like the first 10 mins before you get it going). I"m guessing thats the prob your having. Coz it took me like a month to figure out how to load up the new AF. It doesnt have a prob with the heat its just that you need to load up the bowl properly. I just sprinkle a little(by little i mean lesser than average not too less though) poke more holes in the foil(thin holes) and use 2/4 exoticas(with wind cover as needed). Hope this helps.

I have not had an issue with the new cut of AF at all. I just use a phunnel+mod and I get freight trains of smoke and flavor! Because of all the negativity going at AF I actually put off getting some. But the stuff is great. The only issue I had was that when I got my grape it smelled a little funky....So I aired it out and it was great. When in doubt air it out!

AF apple had no taste for me too, for some reason (along with the lemon and orange). I won't buy those flavors again, but the others seem to be just fine. Could it be hit or miss and we just got poorly flavored batches? I also feel the AF quality can be much better, but it's such a good smoke I go back to my fave flavors such as 2 apple/grape.

Lemon used to be the shit, IMO.

I hope the old stuff that john has is going to be good.
