    I just read that Peretti introduced the latest incarnation of their celebrated London Flake in March this year and wondered how it compared to the previous McClelland made version. Has anyone here tried it?

    I go along with the general consensus that the original was a direct mirror image of McClelland's #2015 VaPer which I adored and miss terribly despite having a fair amount jarred up.

    I guess what I'm asking is, does the new version compare favourably with the old?

    Regards,

    Jay.

    I have not but I am anxious to hear how it compares also.

    If you can withstand their tax, grab the No 8 instead. Much, much better than 2015 ever thought about being imho.

    I guess I'll have to be my own guinea pig and buy some to find out.

    Please post what you find out. I'm interested to know. I have a jar of 2015 that will last me a while, but I'm curious to know whether I should get a jump start on aging some London Flake.
