Default Jan 2008 AF

my local store is packed with jan 2008 al fakher but because of personal experience, im a little pensive about purchasing any. i was just wondering if anyone here has tried al fakher produced in Jan 2008 and if it is any good. The flavors he stocks are AF Watermelon, AF Grapes, and AF Mint. Im particularly interested in the quality of Grape and Watermelon. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

the only AF flavor that had issues regarding taste and smell was the (white) grape. Anything produced between oct. '07 and Feb. '08 had abit of a ketchup smell and flavor.Unfortunately, the grape your looking at will probably be a lil' funky. The other flavors however have not been known to have any issues that I know of.

I've tried the January 2008 batch of grape from both the 250 gram tub and the 50 gram boxes. I had no problems at all with the stuff from the box, and it had no ketchup smell at all and smoked great. The tub on the other hand reeked of ketchup, and smoked terrible, even after acclimating. Maybe it's more of a problem with the tubs?
