    Well you'll hear about it sometime this week, I just got out of work and they gave me a little mini vacation, 4 days off, so I'll be smoking like a chimney, although Paul has that video on his favorite AF flavors and that ones on it if that's any indication, also this is kind of funny, I packed some gold orange, with some gum mint on top, the container I have the gum mint in didn't seal it enough so I got a case of what's been happening to my orange lately, so for a little while this smoke tasted like nothing lmao, however all my gold stuff, including the first one I opened Bahraini, are all holding their flavors well and I stopped using the tape too, so AF gets 4 thumbs up from me on that

    Oh alright, funny I still haven't tried eskandarani Apple yet, I'm really excited to see how that one goes, if I had to just guess it'll probably be the beat gold flavor with bahraini being second

    You might be right about that, I didn't smoke AF as often, or well hookah in general when the old AF packaging was out, I do remember mint being stronger then, I think DA is probably the same, I haven't smoked lemon mint since they had the old packaging so I don't know, maybe they just have a harder time having the tobacco stay strong on shelf, I hated those bags but one good thing they had going for them was they were sealed really well out of the box

    Ugly hookah is still something I have in mind, since I stocked up on so much stuff I liked I could just get it next time, I got some anise flavor but I I figured it was from my hose since I'd go back and forth with nakhla DA.

    So I tried the golden orange and I'm smoking golden grape with foil now, I think I might've left a bit of soap in some of the leaks in my shika, noticing a slight soapy note to these sessions lmao, the orange was good, but it tasted pretty much the same as regular orange, just less zesty and more oily I guess? Standard orange for me I'd say, but it was still good

    you think they dropped in quality? Why's that? All I could think of would be occasionally I get really choppy pieces, and sometimes a small chunk of unsaturated tobacco, but its pretty rare, besides that I can't say much besides the occasional stem, but to be fair I'm still one of the newer generations of hookah smokers, like AF grape got fixed by the time I had a chance to try it, so I don't really have much to go by

    Well if you plan to do a review on it I'll be looking forward to it

    Smoking some AF golden mint, opened this up the other night, the differences between this and standard AF mint are subtle, but noticeable, its a softer mint, and tastes more like mint leaves than the sweetish candy kind of mint you get with AF mint, just a bit more mellow and natural, unlike the golden grape it takes heat extremely well, as you'd expect from most mints and AF mint, it's definitely nice not having to worry as much about heat

    That's pretty cool, if I were to do something like that I'd wanna try wood working with hand tools, but anyways, I'm smoking a 30/30/30 blend of double apple, bahraini Apple, and gum mint, its so great, its sweet its sour, its minty, has an anise bite, and the softness of the gum, its really complex and smooth I love it

    I haven't had a chance to try breakfast cereal but I heard it was pretty good, you're lucky though, I ordered my 5 kilos before the sales started kicking lmao

    The glazing is taking form pretty well, that's an interesting bowl too, I like that the spire is low, I'd wager it smokes double apple pretty well because of it, I've had consistent issues with burning my DA out of 80ft due to its dimensions, its weird. Hey DD, idk if you read through my posts but you asked about AF golden bahraini, if you haven't then to sum it up, its a really solid flavor, no anise though but its still strong, I just get a really sweet and strong red apple flavor, but its kind of like they made the red apple taste sweeter than an actual one would be, and there's a red apple peel note in the background

    Had some nak da and AF bahraini 50/50 mixed well, stuff was awesome since the DA is so sour, having some golden grape now, not bad at all, on the milder side and the package shows a red grape, might explain why, its good though sweet red grape on the mild side

    I thought about getting a Turkish bowl but idk, on the note of da, I'm smoking some now and this batch seems to have a lot more green apple this time around, this stuff is really sour, awesome batch

    I know how you guys feel, I own two and I do love both of them but sometimes I wanna pick up another one, there's some really nice ones out there for decent prices and part of me wants a double apple only set up. A pipe, unglazed bowl and km rainbow hose, I'd love to see if its true how it makes sessions for your set flavor evolve over time, Paul wrote an article on here saying there's people out there who say you don't have a true experience with hookah without doing something along those lines, and keep unglazed bowls passed down generations. Anyways I'm on gum with mint before work today, oh and dude I gotta thank you for that hose cleaning trick, I don't have to go through the hassle of baking soda and vinegar anymore and I've been using my D-hose exclusively since, I literally just let it sit in one of those gallon ice cream plastic tubs we have around with water while I clean my hookah, the water comes right out with no effort and ready to smoke immediately, I'm really noticing how well it doesn't ghost compared to disposables as well, I'm so glad I purchased this awhile back

    More spam incoming, I'm trying AF gum with mint, I was really said when I got expired al rayan gum with mint from 5star that time and its hard to find, but this is just as good if not better, especially since AF mint already tastes kind of like a mint gum anyways, don't know why I've never tried this it's really good, also the gold Bahraini doesn't seem to like being over packed, got a couple heat issues with that, still smoked well but its touchy, smoking that again really solidified my first impressions of it, its really good, for me its a contender for nak DA, I've said that before with shisha royale and alchemist but this just hits all the rights notes for me, I've always wanted a good red apple flavor and this has gotta be it

    I think I'll take a look online and see what I can find actually, if its more egy style then I'm all for it, it might sound strange but I think the spire in phunnel bowls holds back the flavor potential to a small extent in some cases for me, at least when it came to the 80ft, I always felt like I couldn't be as abrasive with my heat because the circulation wouldn't be as good as if I did the same exact thing in an egy with similar dimensions, my smaller one is slightly wider and slightly less dense, but I think it does everything the 80ft does, but better

    So this came sooner than expected but I wanted to treat myself, I'm trying bahraini apple right now, I'm a bit disappointed in the container, I saw it in video and thought it was going to be like a shisha royale container, those are some strong heavy duty screw ons that you can easily make air tight without risking damage, but this, well, if you try to screw it too tight then it unscrews, it'll skip the treads and just come loose, its still a step up from the current container but it was a huge bummer for me, it can still be sealed fairly well but I went overkill and sealed it extra hard with some box tape, don't want anymore AF orange incidents... Its kind of hard to say much about the flavor right now, I cleaned out this hookah just before that bowl of double apple earlier and my hose as well, and I'm using the same hose, there doesn't seem to be any anise from the tobacco but I get a subtle hint from my hose, or at least that's my guess, its a really sweet red apple, it's kind of subtle but its enough for me to enjoy and I like strong flavors, I don't know the best way to work this stuff since its different from standard AF, I heard it was supposed to be juicer I think, but from what I could tell there was a really noticeable difference in tobacco to juice ratio than normal for AF, like there was a lot more actual leaf in the package I think. This stuff is REALLY sticky, AF is usually sticky but easy to move around and mix and stuff, but this stuff really liked to stay attatched to itself, if you guys ever smoked othmani, and have gotten the really large choppy cuts from them, it looks just like that but way less juice and way more sticky, I'm gonna have to smoke this a lot more to say much else about the flavor, but first impressions are good so far. I've smoked a handful of no anise apple flavors and I think this might be the best, it kind of reminds me of othmani double Apple in a way, that one was on the sweet side too but this takes it up a few notches, It gets a lot sweeter with more heat so this stuff can come off strong but its like...idk, I guess the best way I can put it is imagine if you sliced up a red apple and had it sit in brown sugar for a long time, like to where the sugars got absorbed into the slices then ate it, I think it would taste like this, pretty strong red apple flavor with sweet steroids. This is something you guys gotta try on your own I'm not a reviewer lmao, it seems really solid though, sorry for the long winded posts again, this one was as I was smoking it so yeah. This is definitely more savory, its also not one dimensional, like I can pick up red apple peel on the background behind the strong sweet flavor, this is good stuff man lol

    Smoking an extremely heavy dense over pack with DA, Egyptian, and lotus. Second glance this nakhla is on the dry side, but the flavor is still very much there. I'm really glad I didn't get a 5star repeat because that would've blown since I got a kilo and a half of this stuff, and all the AF seems to be made this year so that's a big plus for me, I'm guessing they threw me a bone since the order was so big. If anybody else besides DD is curious about the revamped gold line by AF I'll be sure to put my thoughts in since I got most of what's available

    I've been really considering getting a good unglazed bowl for double apple only, I thought about getting that red clay harmony but I don't like phunnel bowls with double Apple very much, I only use my Tangier's small for 1 round runs but I've had too many issues out of the 80ft, just doesn't seem worth it
