    Oh yesss
    my order from England came in today. I guess pouches are popular in europe and tins are more popular here. Most of the toby overthere is sold in pouches.
    Rich dark flake is the same exact flake as Esoterica stonehaven.

    Also looking forward to trying out the walnut flakes.

    it was my 1st attemp at an order so if i like it then ill order some more. all went well with the order, only problem is that air mail requires a signature so they dont leave the package at the door if your not there and i had to go get the package. thats the only downside of this order.
    The walnut flakes smell awesome.

    I have smoked Stonehaven and Rich Dark Flake and if they aren't the same, I'll eat my hat. In fact I'll eat all my hats. They're the same. Walnut is a fantastic blend.
