Hopefully for that price there will be some tobacco to go with all the juice. Now if that one flavor was just Amaretto and not Cherry Amaretto I'd try it. BTW what is a Chicago Special? Sounds kinda scary! LOL

Layalina makes a damn good Pomegranite/ Raspberry, let's see how the golden line holds up.

wow, what feedback. i was going to stock that too. some people here have expressed interest to me, like OCMusicJunkie. I saw it yesterday and smelled it at the Layalina HQ and was going to get some but got distracted. I did smell it and it does smell interesting. I seriously was thinking about carrying this line but I think I'll have to try it and review it. Maybe I can get some samples for the local guys and we can try it out.

Layalina Pear and Jasmine are great and Vanilla is above average. I've got to much good stuff to bother with a higher priced Layalina any time soon.

I ordered a bunch of layalina back in march and a few flavors were pretty good. cappuccino, gum, peach, and the raspberry was the best i've had. granted price is a little high I tend to not factor that into my purchases

I am somewhat of a fan of layalina. I can't say I am super excited about this. I don't like the trend of premium equating to expensive. I would happilt try it but it might take some convincing lol.

How is this a Fusion knock-off? Just because they use the same style of box?

And then Fusion is supposedly a copy of Starbuzz? How is Starbuzz the epimote of quality?

those 3 that juno named are probably similarly made, if not made by the same tobacco manufacturer in Jordan. Some would be flavored there, but SB I think is now flavored here, and maybe the other 2 as well. I don't know specifics but those 3 are really similar but SB is the best marketed and lately all the new sb is superior. Old SB is like new fusion and I suspect layalina gold

I have only tried Layalina Watermelon, and I have really enjoyed it. I do not have anything to compare it to because I have yet to open my AF Watermelon. However, I am starting to like more traditional flavored tobacco. Old Skool....

John, in what way is new starbuzz superior. Its pretty-much the same overpriced, overmarketed stuff. They have some good flavors, but most brands do have a handful of winners. The new stuff seems to contain the same tobacco they always use. Enlighten me why starbuzz is that much better...

For the money Fusion, Nakhla and Sinbad are all better than SB and miles better than Layalina.

I feel they've changed their cut and actual tobacco that they use. The flavoring (although artificial) is better than what it used to be. The trick to getting good SB is just get the last 10 or so that they came out with. Also, if you are in a store take something new like Safari Melon Dew and something really old, idk, but something in the old packaging they have, like apple and try to see the difference. SB used to be good for the first 5 minutes then go bad. Now it lasts longer. I think, again, this is just speculation, fusion and Layalina's newer products and SB's older flavors are the same thing.
Again, I used to hate SB, overpriced and not that good, however lately, I hate to admit it, it's been much better. Also, "superior" is to strong a word, just better.

HC does have a thing for pricing stuff a little high. I bet if someone else were to stock it, the price would be around 10-13 dollars a tin.
