OVER ALL:
A very attractive tin of fish. A smokey aroma hits you on opening; a great textured fish, lovely smoke flavor(almost a charred smoke). 25 little fish to the tin. These little guys are just exploding with flavor. Their tails are still attached, tails are a little dry, jerky like texture, like a chip without the crunch. salt is very prominent. No after taste, just a clean crisp taste of goodness. A great tin of fish, I will be eating these again. I give these guys a strong 5 sardine rating.

OVER ALL:
Slight difference to the can. These guys are smoked too, only they left that part out on the header. Same as above. Would and will eat again. Thirty fish to the tin. These guys get 5 sardines.

As Ralph Henry stated in his blog, he really sums these tins' up. "If you have never had Russian smoked sardines, you have not lived a full life and your wife should be scolded."

Sardinella, Tomato Sauce

PRICE:

 OVER ALL:
 A very strong tomato aroma upon opening, almost a stew like aroma. Very large thick slices to the tin, the tomato sauce posses a sweet taste. A very mild, meaty tin of fish, texture is on the firm side.These guys would be killer in a pasta, on toast, or even a salad. A very faint fishy after taste is present. A surprisingly good tin of fish. I would eat again 4 Sardines.

PRICE:

OVER ALL:
A very pleasant aroma upon opening. A canned tuna aroma almost, only more defined. One large chunk of a fish section, and two fairly medium size chunks to the tin. Fish have been purged, contents still remain in their system. A very firm fish, a tad gritty texture from the contents of the innards. No fishy after taste, a very spiny tin. Not a bad tin. Would be better in a spread, than straight out of the tin. I might would eat again. They will get 3 Sardines.
