    Has anyone tried both of these blends? Kramer's is a shop in Beverly Hills and a while back I was there picking up some Father Dempsey and the owner mentioned that FD was very similar to BS.

    So I am curious if anyone here has tried both of these. I would like to know how FD compares to BS.

    Father Dempsey is one of my favorite blends. I just can't seem to get enough of it. In my opinion they both have the same or very similar flavor profile but Father Dempsey has a richer more robust body and flavor. My vote is for the good Father.

    I sent them an email once and asked for a sample of FD, even offered to pay for it; they never bothered to reply...

    It's a B&M located in Beverly Hills. They blend it themselves. You can order it from their website. There are reviews on TR.com
