    Haven't seen the 221b replacement yet (it is in the McConnell's line though).


    Be interesting to see if the Rolls is the same - the McConnell's has a Cavendish centre (like LBeF).

    ....and so does the Charatan:

    (Charatan left - Dunhill right)


    Seems a shame as we can get Davidoff Flake Medallions (with Cavendish centre) in UK but now nothing of this size without.

    I'm not surprised that the Navy Rolls clone isn't a duplicate. Too bad, really. Well, since they won't be sold in the USA, I won't get to try them. I'm not buying much these days anyway, but I wonder how they will sell?

    We'd love to be able to get PS Luxury Bullseye Flake here but we can get Davidoff Flake Medallions (at many times the price) as a Cavendish centred Va.Per. Roll.


    We can't get Escudo either, so no Va.Per. Rolls without Cavendish centres now in UK.

    I was talking to Sam from GQ about this today, he told me he's heard that although they differ in looks it's supposed to taste just the same a DNR, I'll find out hopefully tomorrow if my order arrives on time.
