What did the forum think was the best white emulsion?

I know this has been discussed loads of times but I could not remember the name that came out on top here as the best emulsion. I was talking to someone who asked me what I thought was best but I could not remember. Was it something like Mythos or is that a Greek beer??

Thanks

Yes, I am too. I just remembered it was Mystic paint. I have not tried it but apparently it is a very good matt coverage.

The last time I used Covaplus, following comment on here, (albeit several years ago) it was indeed excellent.

Albany has a decent price to performance ratio.

Maybe you are talking about Mythic DWD, but I think that was discontinued.

I haven't used it for ages but Dulux whites - masonry and emulsion and so on were always pretty good but could be annoying to thin down.
