Post Does anyone think AF is still good??

I have been reading some of the forums latly that have stated that AF is basically losing quality and has become less favored. I have AF and havent had a problem ever... and I was wondering if anyone has had AF recently and thought it was still good.

Nope, the only AF I like anymore is Mint. I refuse to spend $8 on a crap shoot, if they can improve their quality I may try again. In the meantime I will stick with the more consistent Nahkla.

I still like Al Fakher ..

AF - Mint is a must have in my opinion!
AF - Double Apple is reallly good! (if you like apple/licorice)
Mixers
AF - Mint
AF - Cinnamon (Good alone too)
AF - Vanilla

Be your OWN judge! Don't let nobody influence you .. you may miss out on something good or try something really shyty!?

No all of the flavors I have except mint are unsmokeable, and the mint has a funky taste now, way too sweet.

I'm still stick with AF as part of my personal smoking selection. I have just had too many good times with it. Last night had a recomended mix from a fried that I never would have thought of on my own, mint/honey/jasmine, it was incredible. SB could never get that type of flavor and thick smoke. with AF just stick to mixing 50g packs I suppose, tha't's pretty much what I do.

When I first started out, my tobacco stash was almost exclusively AF. Now after trying other brands, I'd say its 50/50. AF has alot of "old standbys" for me (alot of which are listed in this thread). Bottom line, I think everyone should try as many different brands and flavors to find out what they do and don't like. AF like all other brands discussed on this site has winners and losers.

AF isn't as consistent as it once was but I still enjoy it. Current AF flavors that I am smoking are Vanilla, Mint, Pipe, and Guava. I picked up a Golden AF Strawberry that's not too shabby. I like their Watermelon but I have had bad batches so I won't be buying anymore of that flavor for a while.

For daily use I enjoy AF. I am not one to be good with taste but I can withstand any abnormalties.

I have been switching to Tangiers and I feel they are of same quality. I like Tangiers but because of the amount I use tobacco I can't really spare an extra $2 for my inflated opinion of quality.

i think it is hit and miss, ive had 4 good af boxes (one of them golden so it seems immune to the issues any way though) 1 bad box and 1 unknown box (havent opened it yet) , 1 bad 50 gram, and 2 good 50 grams, and 1 slightly off but it smokes ok.

if the unopened box is still bad im going to have to contact AF, i got a bad 250 of cola that i dont think i can salvage so o well, i may email AF but if the new box of mint is off i will contact them for sure cause im not going to let 17 bucks go out the door

aznfamous, best sig ever, that kid didnt even have to act for that

I think bad batches and shiet were all a hoax. I think many are easily influenced by the opinions of others. I have been smoking al fakher since 04 and have had no problems whatsoever. In fact, my 06 grape was smoked last night. Expired for 3 years and still made sex explosion in my mouth.

I have smoked nearly half of AF's flavors, and even though there are still some great flavors, most of them have given me trouble. I've also gone back to some favorites and noticed a definite change and didn't like it (and not from the sway of others' opinions), so I've been avoiding the brand altogether now.
