Skip it and get Al Amir White Grape. Best grape in the biz.

As Husky said AA White Grape is very good, but Al Amir Exotic White Grape is great! AF is not worth the gamble.

to many haters i am starting to think that people are just saying af sucks and not actually giving it a try(except the grape it was bad but i got mine right before the ketchup hit) cause i still have not had a bad batch of it.

The Hookah Store carries Mizo I believe so get that grape instead.

Call me a hater if you like but its my opinion and I am entitled to it. And yes, I have tried MANY flavors and batches of various AF and can honestly say the quality of ALL AF has gone downhill. Nahkla has been the only consistent brand that I smoke regularly.

It's true! Husky is a hater. But he's also right. From what I understand, in 2007, Al Fakher upgraded to a new manufacturing facility and slightly tweeked some of their flavors. Grape being one of them.
The reason some of us are hard on AF is because we remember the days when AF grape was the unchallenged king. The cut of the newer stuff is finer and some have a problem w/this. They've also began using more glycerin than they once did, and I'm no fan of the goopy stuff.This is not to say Al fakher is not still a reputable product, but those old batches,......oh those old batches..........how I miss them so!

I had some AF Golden Grape 250g's from a while back, and it was absolutely amazing. I just got a 50g AF Grape (not golden?) and I can definitely tell the difference. There's almost no flavor, the shisha didn't last long at all, and there were a decent bit of stems. I tried some Al Waha Grape though, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the product. When comparing the 50g packages of Al Waha vs. Al Fakher, there was a noticeable difference in amount. Al Waha seemed to have a lot more in the package than Al Fakher.

I got the May 2008 batch, and like so many above have said, does not compare to the good old days. A slight, but detectable, off smell is there.

I am holding onto an old batch of AF Grape and rarely smoke it as I want it to last. Their Mint is good as well, but other than that I cant stand the stuff any longer.

Sep 08 batch is good, hasn't got no ketchup taste, but the flavour is way too stong and in my opinion non-smokable, but others may like it, and i got the kilo one if it makes a difference

I've had mor ebad batches of AF then i can remmeber espically mango/grape/apricot/golden grape/plum/peach

Most of it was chemically, tried acclimating it but it didnt work, but i still love the stuff, when you get a good batch you get a very good smoke

Negative, I have smoked more AF than I care to list. I speak from experience and I am sure 99% of the people on this awesome forum speak from experience as well as we tend to NOT be followers based on what others say and try to persuade you to believe. So yes there are haters and with good cause, I do not believe its all talk by non AF smoking people.
