Default AF Licorice

I just had some of the new AF Licorice which it seems they have decided to replace Ark Sous with and I am pretty disappointed. It's not that the new stuff is bad it's just it is decent, ordinary licorice and frankly Afzal Black licoriceis a good deal richer a fully bodied. Given that Ark Sous was one of best products on the market from any company I think this was real blow to AF. ******* Hookah had some of the old Ark Sous around and the smarter buyers here snatched it up so those of you that have the good stuff enjoy it because a classic has gone the way of good, cheap cigars.

I have to agree with you there, Hajo. I picked up an old batch of Arc Sous from CH and it is fantastic. A sweet, but not candied, full flavor smoke.

I'm always a day late and a dollar short. i enjoy The black llicorice/anise flavored shisha.....I've only had havanna and lyalina though. I'll have to see if i can track down some of this Arc Sous. perhaps it has not yet gone entirely the way of the wind.

Ark Sous is not like any other licorice in that it is not anise flavoured at all. It's more like a super expensive natural licorice candy like Panda. Like Kwikwi said it's mildly sweet and rich although I always noted just a slight tobacco quality in the background which I like a lot.

I have access to a large stockpile of the Ark sous Hajo, or anyone else for that matter who might like this flavor. I could not agree more that it is one of AFs' best.
I should mention that I'm suprised that they no longer produce the ark sous. I would imagine it is quite popular in the middle east.

just to clarify, I have access to a large # of 250g tubs. I would have to buy them meaning a trade or other form of reciprocity would be in order.

I am not sure that AF has stopped making Ark Sous but it seems they have stopped selling it in the states. It seems that AF sells Soft Black only in the Middle East and Turkey so perhaps Ark Sous will go the same way? Anyway, given that Afzal makes a much better licorice I can't see paying more for AF. I am very disappointed with AF's decision on this one.

My Sierra rep told me that the current AF licorice is ark sous, I told him I don't belive him but that's what he says. Hence the point of Hajo's thread. Anyways, pray for some new AF's to get here soon.

Looking at the AF site I notice that they list the flavour Ark Sous but when you actually click on it what you get is a picture of a package that says licorice. The AF that I ordered expecting it to be Ark Sous doesn't have that name anywhere on the package. It says licorice and it tastes nothing like Ark Sous. What a lousy deal.
