    St. Bruno, Revor Plug and Condor would be my recommendations. There are lots more available on that side of the pond that we can't get here in the states but those are the ones I've tried and loved. Mick McQuaid, Player's Navy and Walnut Flake are ones I've heard great things about as well. Never had the opportunity to try them myself but if you can get them, they should be worth a shot

    I vote St. Bruno and Condor as well. Lots of people seem to have nothing but good things to say about them.

    I've tried several of the British OTCs through across-the-pond trades. The three "must try" blends are Walnut Flake, St Bruno, and Condor. If you have the extra cash to get a couple more (the taxes over there are exorbitant), throw in some Revor Plug and Mick McQuaid.

    If you get some St Bruno or Condor, be forewarned that you may have to dedicate a pipe for these blends. They ghost briars like nobody's business!

    Tell them they should tour the Guinness and Peterson factories! Both do tours.

    Tell them to meet up with BaccyBert - pretty sure he's from round those parts!

    Condor (obviously), and I'd recommend some Mick McQuaid plug.
