Looking over my reviews, I had the #2 as the lightest cased of the Special Flakes, and #1 as having Tonquin (perhaps that what you taste as soapy?) along with the lemon

Ok thanks doc, I found Special Flake 2 pretty close to Cannon but I just can't tell any difference. Maybe he sent me number 2 by mistake, I was hoping for really soapy tasting blend, but I guess i'll never know!

1: Notes: From Synjeco: To me, this is the most exotic SG tobacco! If you like "soapy" tobaccos, here is the one for you. The smell was a bit shocking to me; it smelled like the "Camay" soap, very perfumed. The color range from light to dark, with light brown dominant. The cut is rather medium, and I find the flakes to be easy to rub out. The taste is almost identical to the pouch aroma, esp. at first. The "perfumy" smell gradually dissipates, without disappearing. This is definitely a tobacco that require exclusive pipes for its use.

Sounds good!

Anybody know why a 500g box is over double the cost in the UK than here? And why is all the good SG and GH stuff nt available here? UK has Chocolate Plug! Uncut Cabbie's mixture, Balkan Plug, That new brown sugar flake, the Rum Plug....but it cost so much compared to here!

1) every place has different 'sin tax' rates
2) how import companies decide what they think will and won't sell is a mystery to me
