So I'm interested in giving Bengal Slices a try and I went to look up the reviews on Tobacco Reviews and got three results.
This is the one I was going to get:

Is this the one that most people seem to enjoy?

You might not want to get that one, it has an addictive chemical in it.

All kidding (damn another lamb joke) aside it is an excellent blend. A unique taste that I pick up cedar and incense notes.

Buy it just because of the cool looking tin and mysterious name ..

I've never tried the original Bengal Slices, but I've smoked the new stuff blended by Russ Oulette. I think that's what your pic is showing. It's fantastic. I've also smoked fusiliers ration and I find them similar in some ways, with both having a delicious topping with vanilla/tonquin note, and both are very smooth and delicious. I think the Bengal Slices has more Latakia flavor if I remember correctly. It's been a little while because I'm aging them a few months.

The tin art for Bengal Slices is classic. I begged them not to play around with it for the new version, other than adapting it to the round tins. It may be one of the most attractive designs ever.

True dat!
Russ, I was lucky enough to receive one tin out of an order last January without the damn white warning label. And yet the ones with the label seem to be one piece. Any idea? Did you consider printing an unblemished label, with a stick on? (Pretty sure cost of process makes that impractical). You can be sure I will save that tin!

Besides the labor costs to do it, the mandatory size of the warning label would cause it to cover up parts of the original tin art. The whole situation is ridiculous.

Russ, when I first offered you the opportunity to reissue Bengal Slices, we were in complete agreement that the tin art, and the blend itself, must stay as true to the original as humanly possible. I designed the adapted round tin label that is essentially what you see here, but you did the heavy lifting and brought Bengal Slices back in all it’s glory. Kudos!
BTW, I originally suggested that P&C offer “Bagel Slices” in a round tin, but somehow that never happened.

Cosmic, that design would make people stop smoking. Clearly not what the taxmen want!
