The wisdom in that statement. Applause, Dunkel, applause.

I had a probelm in the summer when i was getting batches from jan-may, but since then it has been fine, only a few flavours i had a problem with and i do buy a lot of AF

I don't think sales are really going down around the world espically in like dubai, UK, India, those regions it had to find good tobacco apart from AF and nahkla, so no matter how bad it gets its still gonna have a market they until other brands like starbuzz, tangiers etc ar eintroduced for compition, most places apart from U.S i don't think they is a lot of things that compete with AF. I don't know bout Egypt or that region but am pretty sure it will be the same thing

Watermelon... Shit
Melon... Shit
Jasmine... Semi shit
Cherry... Wanted to puke
Double apple... Very little flavor
Strawbbery... To puke again...

I dont know why but the batches we got here in Cyprus are totally... shit

Two days ago i bought AF grape and smelled it without opening it... It was smelling good, at last a good batch i said! But the smell when i opened it was... cant describe it... worst tobacco smell i had... I put one bowl and acclimate the rest until today... Shit shit shit both the 2 days!

all the af i have ordered since i started smoking:

Watermelon 250g X4- 1 Bad batch All 2008 Prod. Date Harsh tickle in throat

Cherry 250g-2 Bad batches all 2008 prod. date no harsh tickle, just tasted like plastic or something.

Strawberry 250g x2- 1 bad batch 2008 prod. date. bad tickle! lol

Melon 250g x1- Never again. Not even comparable to a melon.

Pineapple 250g x1- Its ok.

Golden Esk. Apple 250g- Small tickle at first, after a little while of having it it went away.

Grape 50g x1- Smells fine when you take a small whiff and/or hit. Big inhale on this stuff smells and/or tastes like ketchup. (anyone ever tried french fries with this stuff?) lol.

Jasmine 50g x1- Meh...OK

Golden Strawberry 250g x2- Heavenly each time i smoke it.

i think the golden flavours is the way to go if you dont want a bad batch but it is very limited, and esk apple seems to go off way too quick for my liking
