Well done, England! I’m sure the tobaccos are great but what’s catching my eye are the painted tins and those tall tins. They’re beauts!
Yeah, the painted tins are much nicer than the paper sticker ones! Although hopefully the tobacco inside is the same - I believe the paper sticker ones that still say 'Made in the UK under the authority of...' are from the very end of Murray's production (I have some other Murray's tins from the very early 2000s that have very similar labels). Certainly when I was buying STG-produced Dunhill tins they read 'Made in the EU...'.

The tall tubes are actually cardboard sleeves of 5 tins each. I got a real jolt of nostalgia from the MM965 one - must have seen it in a duty-free as a kid, or maybe my grandad had one.
