Default Sample Packs ...

Do you find that sample packs, are a bit drier and therefore harder to smoke than regular 250gm tubs?

What are your opinions on this?

90% of the time i would agreee. Especially if they are in the carboard packaging (like havana, aw, etc). Those always taste worse than the actual tubs.....

In my experience, 50g packs have almost always been of low quality. I've tried 6 or 7 from Al Amir and thought they all tasted roughly the same -- sweet and indistinct. Same thing happened with Layalina, so I decided to try a few of their 250 tubs and there most definitely seems to be a difference.

Same here, typically 90-95% of all 50g packs I've gotten have been lesser tasting and somewhat drier than the same in 250g tubs. There have been exceptions:

Havana Menthol was and still is SUPER drippy and strong.
A couple Layalina packs where drippy, but tasted better in 250g tubs.
Nakhla, even though in cardboard box, seems fine (for what it is).

Well, I guess that confirms it for me, and I will have to start using up my sample packs and start buying full containers!
