I ordered 4 pucks from the German website:
Tulach Ard
Classic Havana
Malabar
Purissima

Any comments on what to expect?

Her Plum is one of my all-time favorite soaps!

Stuff is easy-to-lather, slick, and has very good post shave conditioning provided you work plenty of water into the soap (keep working more water in after you have a useable lather).

I actually just ordered a couple more pucks of the plum, and I'm giving the Highland Honey a try as well.

I found them to be fantastic. Just as good, if not slightly superior to MdC.

Coincidentally I just order 8 pucks a few days ago...figured I'd take advantage of the shipping, and 2 are not mine. Really looking forward to trying them out. I'm a little worried about potential irritation due to the scents, as some of the lovely British soaps happen to affect me. But I'm also optimistic because speick and tabac give me no irritation despite their scents.

They are good, I tried 8 of them. But now that they are gone I won't order again, not in my top 5 but certainly worth trying.
