Rating (1 to 10): 9.5/10

I've had a few bad Grape smokes, but this was the first time smoking AF Grape, and I'm sad I waited so long. A great taste, wonderful long smoke, forgiving with the heat and an excellant staple! Another great flavor from Al Fakher.

Mixes very well with Mint, SB X on the Beach and Marlette. I want to try it with some lemon and maybe a few other flavors.
Update: There seems to be alot of production issues with bad batches of Al Fakher Grape. Most seem to stem from Aug, Sept, and Oct production lots, but even then it seems to be hit-or-miss. I've gotten several Aug batches that were fine. I received a Sept batch that wasn't. It smelt like it was rotten.
Many people have temp given up purchasing AF Grape until the "Rotten" batches are fixed, as no-one Official from Al Fakher has stepped up and explained what is going on.
