The May 2008 batch of grape is crap. They should change, and they should do it now!

I still smoke it and have no complaints I just ordered 8 250g in the last 3 weeks and they all smoke fine and tasty. I have AF golden grape, Golden E apple, peach, mint, gum, vanilla, grape, bubble gum, all but came from the same supplier and local since I wanna support the local scean also. I have just found if its a bit off aclimate IT!! I have noticed a litle tickel with the new stiff but dosent really bother me at all.

I have no problems with AF. I don't get this throat tickle people speak of. I will say that the flavors for some have been a bit more chemical tasting recently. One thing I don't get is people blaming the small cut. look at HH, that stuff is like cig tobacco and I don't see anyone complaining about getting throat tickles from that. I ordered a kilo of AF grape from alfakheronline.com and it was Apr 08 batch, tasted fine.

Cause HH doesn't tickle when you smoke it! . Just when you burn it.. which is damn easy.

for 08 it'll look like this: Jan-Dec Shit.

But in all reality I do rarely buy AF for their Golden Strawberry/Apple, and an occasional 50g of ketsup that does smoke okay.
I will not list them as my favorite anymore, or even top 3 tobaccos.

Man, you're a risk-taker. A kilo of AF grape is like puttin a pink slip up in reno.

It was good AF, but the grape flavor isn't what it used to be...

I would, definitely because I picked up some 06 from John. There is no comparison to the 07 or 08 mistakes. The cut alone is much better.

The throat tickle has nothing to do with cut rather the crap they threw into the recipe when they changed it. The cut just pisses me off since it now makes a mess when I use my Lebanese bowl.

Personally I have no complaints toward AF and I have all of 2008's flavors...no joke every flavor. I love them all and all of my customers love them as well... my biggest sellers are grape and watermelon... I am not just defending AF tho... I reallly do like them and before the "sales going down" or they "need change" buttons are pushed I also would like to see some evidence that business has gone down... and in all honesty I think some grapes taste like shit but i dont complain... AF has been around for a long time evidently they are doing something right and really if anybody has a problem with AF for like 7 bucks/250g go get some starbuzz for 20 bucks a can.... Sorry to sound bitchy but I have to defend them lol... I do dearly love some of their flavors

I have said enough already about this topic. I really liked AF when I first tried it but it has changed. The cut getting smaller is one problem. I saw where MrB mentioned HH's cut. Yes HH is a small cut but it doesn't have the mushy glycerin slop AF does. AF's new cut will clog the holes in your bowl in a hurry if you aren't careful. The only other shisha tobacco I've found that does that is Potion. Potion is another swimming in glycerin fine cut mess. AF's flavors have changed too. To the people that say you've never had a bad batch then you should play the lottery. I refuse to recommend to anyone an inferior product. I will never ever spend another cent on AF. When I spend my money I don't want to hope and pray for a good batch, I want what I paid for.

I Never have problems with AF Sometimes the tickle in the throat but then i just remove a coal or move them around i think that the cut is just fine

its just people that needs something to complain about i dont get why people dont order a 50g and see if its alright instead of 250 g or more
