    I scored 100g tins of each at a local b&m. I haven't been able to find out much about them. Any insights? I plan on getting into the scotch tin since they have two more I can buy if I like it.
    Thanks!

    Orlik DSK. Has a bit of licorice in it as I recall. I thought they stopped selljng it in the states a few years ago.

    They may have stopped selling it. The tins were dusty and the price was $11 a piece, so you know they've been on the shelf for a while.

    Major score! Haven't even heard of Orlik Scotch.
    Sounds pretty tasty to me!! Neither have been
    available in the states for quite some time now.
    Lucky you. :appl:

    Oh, and if you DO buy the other tins
    of Scotch, I'm sure I could come up
    with something tantilising to trade for
    one. :whis: :D

    You scored big time . Orlik Kentucky is maybe the best blend in the world . Peter Heinrich strong Kentucky is the same as far as I can tell and is available . The Orlik will be aged as was mentioned . A blend like that will will mello around the edges and get even better . Very nice score :thu2:

    Orlik DSK is my all-time favorite! You made a lucky score on those tins. Peter Heinrich's Dark Strong Flake is reportedly the same blend, but the aging on the Orlik tins makes them a real gem.

    Do yourself a favor and don't tell anyone you found Orlik DSK at a U.S b&m.

    uh-oh... I was too late to save you! :D

    Nice score. I still have one 100 g tin of that from 1999. Great stuff!

    I have Carl to blame for my addiction to this wonderful and beautiful blend. By the way - Howdy Carl!;)
