    Honestly? Dunno.

    I haven't delved into G&H's catalog far enough to get to it. To be honest, i'm enamored enough with the 'Lakeland' essence, scent, soap, et al, that ordering unscented versions seems a waste!

    Yeah, I love that stuff. I'll try their other offerings if I can, but if I'm looking specifically for something else, I'll more often get a different brand. I think you'd love the Kendal Dark. Heavy hitting shag cut lakeland

    I'm loading up G&H Dark Birdseye in a clay as we speak. Not exactly mellow...

    Was nice. I think I like it better than
    EMP. Hmm... will have to smoke some
    of that just so I'm not a liar. ;)

    It took me a while to master Kendal Dark, but once I learned how to pack and smoke it, and what pipes to use for it, it's treated me well for a long time. Not bitey, not overwhelming, just plenty of nicotine combined with a quick smoke time. Dark Birdseye...does it have a nice floral quality?

    Only faintly in the background. It's Five Bros. with a British sensibility. Unlike the scented Lakelands, you have to almost search for it.

    Irish Flake, from the new tin. Not impressed. Old stuff was way more satisfying.

    Germain Medium Flake in a Castello dublin.
    Fully rubbed out this stuff burns a little hot.
    Think I'll fold and stuff next time.

    LTF for body, FMATP for spice, and OTC Burley Melange to keep things burning cool and even. Nice.
