As it turned out, the first smoke WAS Irish Flake. Had it in the Rossi Vittoria 8320, to see how it was in a 15/16" bowl. Not much different, and any nuance-y differences I think were there, may have just been in my head. When it all comes down to it, though, I'm not sure whether it matters. The Irish Flake was a great bowl, and a nice one to start the year with.
