Having spent a bit of time with each blend, both are very similar to one another to my tasting ability. I think that Tavern has the edge on complexity, but it also has everything under the sun and the kitchen sink in it as well. Both are blends that I like very much, but both come with their own issues with one being ungodly expensive, and the other often being harder to find than ta tas on a bull. There are certain points at which, when smoking either, I would be unable to distinguish the two in a blind taste-test. Choices. Choices.
