    I've had the Coniston, and was
    wondering how similar the Bosun
    is to it. I see a few etailers have the
    unscented versions avail, but I
    want the scented type. Has anyone
    done an A/B of these? Appreciate
    any input.

    If you like Coniston, you will almost certainly be a big fan. Off the top of my head, Bosun is a bit heavier on the flavourings and Coniston is a bit heavier in terms of the tobacco taste. Never done a side by side though. Just try some - you won't be disappointed.

    Both very good and like buistd says, if you like one you'll probably the other. The clove really comes through in the Bosun for me and yes, it's not quite as full as the Coniston either in flavour or nicotine. The No. 7 Broken Flake is another good one from G&H that could be thought of as the little brother of the three.
