Personally, I find LA Shaving Soap Company to be the best performing soap, vegan, tallow or otherwise. It's a vegan soap.

I haven't found a scent yet that I'm super in-love with, but the performance is second to none.

Haslinger is the best overall soap I have ever used, tallow or non.  For non-tallow, I'd go with PdP at the moment.

For me, vegan is easy - HTGAM.  My favorite is the Beach but Cavendish performs just as well. Its super slick and has a great post shave feel which are the qualities of a good tallow soap that drew me to them initially. Tallow, not so easy, I like MWF, Stirling, Beer Soap brewing, and Tiki bar, they all perform great, I suppose if I have to choose one, for now, the Tiki edges the others out. It is just hitting it out of the park for ease of lathering, slickness and post shave feel but the margin of victory is pretty slim.

For me I much prefer the tallows. Very important for the creamy lather with all the protective cushions. I do not enjoy the vegan coconut oil soaps. Very drying for me and in the winter time forget it! I have found one vegan though and it is not so bad for the drying but still not a quality of the good tallow in the lather.

For the best tallow it is Cold River Soap Works Select
For the best vegan it is L'Occitane Cade

Quick follow up on my above post, I was unaware of some of the things surrounding HTGAM soap. I don't all the details but lets just say I have concerns. I respectfully retract my previous recommendation on a vegan soap and substitute Pre De Provence, great slickness, lasts nearly for ever and very nice light scent.

Tallow is Haslinger - slickest, creamiest lather of them all
Vegan vote goes to Le Pere Lucien - best ratio of price and performance and the scent is so good

Best vegan for me is Catie's Bubbles, but it's close.

Best tallow is Mickey Lee Soapworks, but again it's close.

I know this is pedestrian for most of you but my favorite tallow is the lowly Arko shave stick.  My favorite veggie soap is Institut Karite soap.
