Default Is it just me or...

Has the AF Mint really gone down hill... I thought perhaps acclimation was in order because I am in the NorthWest, but still tastes like junior mints to me...more of a novel mint, rather than an actual mint taste...I've tried several different packs to make sure I didn't get an expired one, and to give it a few more chances...but I'm still sorely dissappointed....

I smoked AF Mint for the first time a few weeks ago. It was nowhere near as great as others said it was. It's the worst mint I've ever smoked easily.

According to everyone's reviews, it seems like AF is just tanking in general.

I though Junior Mint flavor was how it was suppose to taste? Huh... I don't hate it, but it's too strong and too fake. Epic Peppermint is so much more enjoyable.

Nakhla easily has an awesome mint. Very powerful mixer.

I have AF mint here (prod date is November 2008) and its not as bad, as you mentioned here ..
its truly not the best one, but its okay. anyway, the best mint tobacco is Serbetli (very heavy/intensive) or al ajamy (a bit candyish)

I've tried in order of greatness best to worse, Nakhla Mizo Mint, Nakhla Mint, Ayam Zaman Mint, SB Social Smoke, Zona Peppermint, Potion Spearmint, and last and definately least AF Mint.

Yes indeed AF mint was really bad, or at least the last batch i had was. The lemon mint on the other hand was great. Just thought id throw this out there too, STAY AWAY from AF Melon... just terrible lately as well.

it seems since they made the switch to the containers, you know the little tubs with a handle, that the quality has gone down. I just smoked berry out of my new phunnel (thanks John & ******* Hookah) and it wasn't bad. So by no means am I hating on AF, it just seems lately they are getting lazy? I do still have a nice batch of AF grape (not golden, normal grape) and it from when they were cutting much finer, with almost no stems...

Perhaps with the popularity increase of smoking shisha, the quality control has decreased, as would be expected when a sudden rush of business happens.

I don't know...I'll have to hit Nakhla mint though, I'm curious as to the taste of it now!
