    EMP was a tobacco I was glad they brought back. When starting pipe smoking I read the reviews everywhere but was limited to knock off blends. While I enjoyed good morning, I never felt it was balanced. Once EMP came out a year ago, I switched to it and let the jar of Good Morning sit.

    My EMP supply is getting low, but I like the bulk price of Good Morning better. So, before buying more tins of EMP, I thought I should revisit Good Morning. I am sad to say it is stil not as good as EMP. The flavors are all there, but the blanace is off.

    Anyone else find this to be the case? I have a sample of H&H Daybreak coming, maybe that will fit the bill.

    I agree, GM is not even close! I bought 2 pounds of EMP right before it was discontinued. I am still smoking what remains, and enjoying every bowl of it. IMHO, GM is not a very good tobacco, let alone a good rendition of EMP.

    Erinmore balkan mixture is similar to the original EMP

    I fear that is not available state side.

    I enjoy the current EMP, just wish it were available in bulk so I could save some money.

    I've only smoked a couple tins of EMP and one tin of GM so far and probably couldn't tell them apart if I didn't know which was which. EMP might be a little sweeter...?? I like them both.

    Who carries Good Morning in bulk?

    I like DayBreak a lot. It's one of my favorites from H&H.

    I am not sure who carries good morning in bulk, but I believe C&D would sell it direct.

    If I could buy EMP and Nightcap in bulk I'd be one happy guy. I've tried several bulk "copies" and they just don't cut it.

    Just finishing my first bowl of H&H Daybreak. We may have found a winner. Need to put it in a jar and see what a few months does. Usually does wonders for h&h bulk.

    I've smoked EMP, and it's very good, but nave never had GM, so I can't compare them.
