"Great new flavors from AF!"
Edward Jakovich on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 9:01:30 PM

I almost exclusively smoke Al Fakher flavors so I was pretty excited when they introduced these three new batches - I'll give a brief flavor review for each and then give some final thoughts - Batch #8: I'm not a huge green tea or matcha kind of guy so I almost skipped on trying this flavor, but I am so glad that I did get it - Batch #8 was my favorite out of the three and I kept coming back to it day after day - The flavors mix so perfectly to deliver a nice slightly cooling mint with a nice almost earthy-sweet flavor, it's honestly hard to describe but I definitely recommend this one - Batch #7: I'm normally a huge fan of AF's fruity flavors so I was expecting this to totally wow me, but I was a little let down - AF's grapefruit flavor is top-notch on it's own but I found it a little lacking in this blend - Overall the flavor was just good but nothing totally special - Batch #4: So to preface this, I HATE double-apple and most apple flavors, but man oh man was this a surprise - Batch #4 delivers a stunningly delicious apple flavor with a little bit of minty cooling to round it out - This was a total hit with my friends and I and we will definitely be coming back to this one in the future - Closing thoughts: Al Fakher has come up with and executed superbly on these three new flavors and I strongly recommend you give them a try - I did have one gripe with the containers they come in though, while the containers look awesome they were an absolute nightmare to open the lids on - To open these lids I had to use both hands, twist and pull hard to open them, sometimes I even had to pry them off - So to AF, I love the designs on the jars but please come up with a better lid design as I'd love to keep these as my shisha containers -

"Number 4 and 8 review"
Alan Melamed on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 12:09:23 PM

Hello out there is H-S land! After reviewing the Number 7 blend, I thought I would complete my reviews with my take on the Number 4 and Number 8 blends - First, the Number 4 - Number 4 has an apple note to it, that much is clear - There were some other spices, but they were far too weak to be able to recognize them with any degree of certainty - The appearance of this shisha is exactly like the Number 7 and 8, in that it was very coarsely cut and needed quite a bit of breaking up before it would work in my bowl set up - This shisha wasn't bad, and the apple note did come through, but I've tried other shishas where the apple note is stronger, like Nakhla Mizo Apple for example - If you want a light apple flavor and a light smoke, this is the shisha for you - - - I really didn't note a blend of flavors though - - - Number 8 had an interesting flavor, kind of like Sprite with a hint of tea thrown into it - - - the Sprite was flat, and it was balanced out by the tea which I could clearly taste - Not a bad flavor, but definitely lacking in strength - My set up for all of these was a Vitria II bowl and Kaloud Lotus - - - using 3 Titanium flat coals -

"Number 7 Review"
Alan Melamed on Saturday, August 3, 2019 9:13:17 PM

Tried this shisha yesterday and i wanted to give my fellow smokers out there the scoop on this newest AF creation - First, the appearance of thos shisha is what you would expect from AF, red dyed shisha - - - no surprise there - The cut however is sonething conpletely different - - - very coarse cut tobacco - - - it appeared as marble sized globules of tobacco - - - nothing like a typical AF cut - Youll need to break this stuff up quite a bit to get it into the bowl - The scent of the shisha is good, but i didnt get the huge flavor that others have reported - - - i got a very muted grapefruit flavor - - - thats it - - - I used a Vitria II bowl and Lotus 2 which is my goto setup for any shisha - This is not something i would buy again as i prefer stronger flavor profiles and though AF can and does make flavors that i enjoy, this is not one of them - - -
