    1 tin each of:
    GLP Odyssey
    Charring Cross
    Embarcadero
    Germain Royal Jersey Original Latakia Mixture
    McC Classic Samsun
    A generous sample of bulk G&H Brown Flake Scented

    First impressions on G&H I didn't think I liked flavored or aromatic tobaccos, but I like this Lakeland type stuff, alot. If I like this will I like Condor/St. Bruno?

    Charring Cross is alot like Blue Mountain, and smells like the tin of Black House. Very nice smoke indeed.

    To my taste G&H BFS is less scented than Condor. It is even less scented than G&H Broken Flake. St. Bruno doesn't have any "Lakeland essense" to my nose.

    Condor and St. B have a different 'essence' than
    The Lake District tobies. Similar, but not.
    If you see what I mean.

    Not to hijack the thread, but is there anything similar to St. Bruno in the Gawith Hoggarth stable?

    St Bruno was like Condor Lite to me. Condor was awesome...but so was St Bruno.

    Too bad it is such a PITA to get them in the states.

    Snake, what do you think comes close to Condor Long Cut, the G&H BFS?

    not really.....but I'd recomend trying 'Bulwark Flake' (now made by Stockkebye) I get it OTC at my tobacconist, some may find it difficult to obtain - but well worth it!.

    OT's right. Nothing G&H offers really
    matches St. Bruno.
