Default AF Grape Dec 2008 Batch?

So, my boss was in Dubai and got me some AF from the duty free (much more expensive than the local shops there, but he could not get off what he was doing before shops close, still much cheaper than Egypt) .... Anyways he got me half a kilo of grape (50gx10 pack) and half a kilo of Apple (250gx2). Anyways, question here is ... anyone tried AF Grape Dec 2008 batch?

Not necessarily Dec, but I have 2008 AF grape and it's quite tasty, if that helps at all.

Roll the dice! You could roll 7 but you could get craps! Why gamble?

To me its the flavor of it. The Grape is weak but bitter now, it's bad. It's like the undertone of really bad white wine, if you have had the unfortunate luck to try that.

The flavor used to be like Nakhla Grape... now it's just bad. Nakhla is the new White Grape.

i just got some grape from a friend, its dec 2008, tastes fine. i never really got the ketchup thing (im not putting it past anyone that they did...because the smell is pretty close).

i was even looking forward to trying it...but when i did, just doesn't taste that great.

Decipher u mean?

well, Husky AF Grape is one of the best shishas I have ever had .... and the first tub I got was so delicious that it was finished off in 2 weeks and I smoked it every day ..... Yes, I was stuck with a bad kilo later on .... but I am still willing to try again to get back to that very first flavor I got ...... even if it takes me few bad tubs in the way.

Thanks for correcting my spelling TE. Yes AF Grape used to be my all time favorite, I still have half a tub of the good old stuff and break it out for special occasions.

Amen! Al Fakher Grape is NOT dead here! Just ask Ahmad how quick I went through the batch of Al Fakher Grape he was kind enough to send to me . I will note that Nakhla is now my primary smoke, however, Al Fakher is right behind in 2nd place. Lots of people complain about the new Al Fakher and I will say I DID in fact have a batch that didn't taste as good as it used to, but it's still great by me. I hope this helps!

Got myself a tub of AF Grape dated from AUG 2008. I checked twice and yes, it is authentic. Unfortunately, I have a cold right now. My nose is runny and i'm coughing mucus every two hours or so.

I'm getting better, so in about two days I should be able to smell and taste normally. I'll finally know if I got the ketchup or the mythical, delicious grape flavor that gets so much praise around here.

Logically, one might think that AF has two different lines of production for the grape flavor. It would greatly simply things if the Al Fakher reps would cooperate and tell us what's going on.
