Nice selection :thumbsu:
I havent had the celtic but I know the others are all excellent ! The Larsen 1864 is really fantastic
Nice. I've only had the Old Fashioned.
Would like to know how those others compare.
Have you had any of them before? Great selection, can't wait to hear about them.
I shall post reviews here however dodgy they may sound.
All newies to me Duke.
Here is my dodgy review for the first toby I tried:
Planta Original Danish Black Vanilla Mixture.
I believe this to contain real vanilla bean not just a flavored topping. So hopefully the delicious flavor won't disappear too fast.
The tin aroma is excellent. The moisture content was such that only one light was necessary to provide continual burning to the bottom of the bowl. There was no need to pack too tight. I find that most aros get bitter at the end and stopped the pleasure before the end was nigh even though it was still alight. I found this aromatic blend to taste and smell as good when burning as it smelt in the tin which is sometimes unusual. This will definitely be no1 on my next reorder and has got me back in to the swing of arros. The vanilla, although quite certainly there, is not overly potent, maybe this has to do with the addition of real vanilla rather than just a topping. Unlike some arros there was no tongue bite. I would give this a go......YUM.
