    I believe that in the States a few brands and blends are 're-badged' and sold under different names. Through the kindness of - and in a trade with 'Telltime' (Devin), I've just recieved some new-to-me samples, one of which is Fader's 'Fort McHenry', and first impressions are very favourable. Not much mention of Faders online, but I read one comment that it is actually McLelland 5100 in disguise, if this is the case - I shall put some on my next 4Noggins order, can someone verify please?.
    I have just finished a batch of 'Classic Flake'(which was o.k) but am a little reluctant to order more McL. stuff due to that famous sauce aroma!, which appears to be less pronounced in some of their blends?.
    Cheers, OT

    You won't go wrong ordering some 5100 to see for yourself.

    5100 is good stuff, put a little age on it and it's great stuff!
