    Play spin the bottle. Put all the tins in a circle and wherever the bottle points, that's which one you open up.

    McConnell's Tin - Scottish Cake would be my first choice.

    McClelland Three Oaks Syrian would be next.

    Dunhill Flake - great smoke and good for breaking in a pipe (no ghosting).

    Decide which one you want to open first, and open that one first. :D

    Seriously, as OT said, it doesn't matter. And my opinion on which to open first (Silver Flake) might turn out to be the one you wished you'd never opened at all.

    Just pick one. No matter which one you choose, you'll second guess yourself so eeny-meeny-miney-mo it and start smokin'! :ohyh:

    No one knows what you will like except you. And you won't know until you try them. So pick one, open it and try to enjoy it.

    Smoke 'em if ya got 'em. Go buy yourself a dozen Mason/Ball jelly jars and open all of 'em and toss 'em into jars.

    Smoked the scottish cake in an unsmoked cob. Nice, uncomplicated smoke. Tin aroma reminds me of davidoff danish mixture.

    I've always wondered about aged burley. If it's as good as an aged Virginia?
