Those who are familiar with both, please contribute.
I get may a bit more sweetness from Westminster and maybe a tad more forward on the orientals from Maltese Falcon.
But, I think it's all in my head, at this point.
Tomorrow, I will switch pipes and try again... hahaha... :crazy: :puffy:

I love Westmimister.
Maltese Falcon I dislike. It has ginger spice of some sort in it and ruins the entire smoke IMO.

Wow. I don't know how I missed that "discreet and mysterious spice" line in the sales description.
I don't dislike it as much as the cinnamon in Angler's Dream. (couldn't smoke that at all)
I guess I really don't dislike it. It's more subtle to me, so far. But I definitely notice it now that you've pointed it out.
Additionally, if you just look at the summary on Tobacco Reviews, it lists no flavoring and is listed as an English, it totally sailed under my "non-aro" radar.
As I am a "less is more" kind of guy with tobacco, I'll likely finish the Maltese Falcon and continue on with the Westminster.
Thanks for pointing that out, kola.

I prefer Maltese over Westminster. But I settled on Gaslight as my preferred blend in that general genre. I stocked up on Gaslight. But I still have lots of Maltese in the big tins aging as well.

Also, I was serious about having to switch pipes and try again.
I initially had the Westminster in my straight latakia pipe, which seems to deliver a full flavor experience. I had the Maltese Falcon in the bent latakia pipe, which I've found to tone down some flavor aspects compared to the straight one. Both Savinelli KS pipes, a Roma 606 and a Bianca 111.

I totally agree. I'm a big GLP fan, but really don't like Maltese. I absolutely love Westminster though. Great all day smoke IMO
