Default Comparing Exotica to Stargate Coals

Has anyone tried both brands of these shaped coals? I bought 1kg of Stargate and found them to be pretty bad; smelly when lighting, burned too hot, and left a bad taste when smoking. Truthfully, I'd (almost) rather use quick-lites.

I resigned my self to natural olive or lemonwood coals, sacrificing the uniformity of size and heating that I was hoping to get from the Stargates.

Anyway, a lot of folks rave about the Exotica coals. I'm wondering if there is anyone who has tried both, and found the Exotica coals appreciably better than the Stargate.
