FVF ain't what she used to be, unfortunately. I have been comparing a tin from 2001 and a tin from 2009, and the difference is huge. The old stuff with the Zimbabwean leaf is much, much, bettter. Still, the new stuff isnt bad, just different.
Of course I have only been smoking the PCCA version not the McClelland labeled tins. I heard that they were formulated with a slight variance. Dont know if thats true but it wasnt meant to be a Syrian powerhouse. Just a touch, just a touch. Which was achieved:).
