    Pure Malt is superior in all aspect.

    But Pure Havane is decent one, too. Get both if you can.

    Pure Malt, but Pure Havane is still a great one. I agree with the poster above, get both if you can.

    I prefer Pure Havane. Pure Malt is loudness controlled A*Men with a fruity boozy note. Pure Havane is its own thing with sweetened Patchouli in the drydown to give it some A*Men DNA.

    Pure Havane is a good fragrance but it has no much tobacco as its name suggests, at least in my opinion. In the other hand, I detect a very present note of cream of whisky in Pure Malt; also I think its smell is better, so I prefer this last one.

    Yes, both for sure. You can't lose either way.

    I think the poll results will end up even. This is a very hard poll to take but I gave Pure Havane the edge

    Pure Havane was way better for me. Smooth cherry tobacco note with honey, cocoa, and patchouli. Pure malt has a whiskey opening I didn't care for. Not a John Walker Blue Label type...the cheap Jack Daniels type. Def try both to be on the safe side.

    I own Pure Malt. I have only worn it two or three times.

    I felt no need to buy Pure Havane.

    Pure Malt for me. Love the caramel/vanilla mid notes on this one. Havane is ok but smells medicinal to me. Also it's very close to the much cheaper Bogart Pour Homme to me. I would've liked it more if it was a sweeter pipe type tobacco instead of spicy, medicinal cigar type tobacco.

    Havane edges out Malt but in truth I think both are worth owning.

    Havane, just more original and more substance than malt. I own both and wear Havane 9/10 times that I reach for a Mugler.

    I own both I prefer Havane. However you can get that Havane scent vibe from other colognes, while in my opinion Malt smell much more unique. I still prefer Havane.

    I wore Pure Malt a couple days ago. It's one of the few 100ml bottles I have that is half gone already. Great stuff.

    I personally find Pure Havane more wearable but Pure Malt has the better scent so voted Pure Malt.
