I just finished a tin of 2014 1792 Flake, and ordered the 250g box. What i received was not a minor change from the previous batch, but a totally different blend. What i got was basically Dark Birdseye Flake. The unique 1792 smell of the tonkin bean is not even present in the tin note or smoke. It even has some anise smell to the flake, sorta like Peterson Irish Flake. Luckily i love Dark Birdseye and all Dark Fired Kentucky blends, so this will all be smoked, but it is NOT 1792 in any shape or form. Anybody else experiencing major differences in the recently released Sammy G blends?
