Dunhill’s Nightcap – A Comment

003-021-0016

If you ever come across Sutliff’s Tobacco Galleria: Night Cap and wonder if it is a cheaper alternative to Dunhill’s Nightcap, don’t go any further: they’re completely different blends. Sutliff’s is a strong aromatic while Dunhill’s is an English blend.

If Dunhill’s Early Morning Pipe is a great blend to start the day, Nightcap is also a great blend to end it. Being a less spicy blend because of less Latakia, it contains Perique; adding a smoky aroma and flavour to the smoke.

As always I recommend Dunhill’s blends to the higher tobacco budgets, but novices are invited to try this fine blend as with all other Dunhill great blends.

A rich blend for late in the day, Dunhill’s Nightcap is a slow, lasting smoke. Just prior to packing, expensive Perique tobacco is added to enhance the bouquet.

Dunhill’s Early Morning Pipe – A Comment

003-021-0017

My go-to tobacco for my first of the day pipe is Sutliff’s 203 Heavy English, as it delivers a good Latakia kick to wake you up and prepare your tastebuds for the coming nice pipes until it’s time to go to bed again.

If you have a bigger tobacco budget than me, then Dunhill’s Early Morning Pipe should be your go-to pipe for first pipe of the day. And it would be for me if I had the wallet for it. But yet again 203 Heavy English is a good tobacco that I enjoy quite well.

If you enjoy Dunhill’s fine tobaccos, you probably already enjoy EMP. But else, I encourage you to try it along My Mixture 965 as they compliment each other as great tobaccos for all-morning and all-day smokes.

For Dunhill’s Early Morning Pipe, sweet Oriental is carefully blended with Bright and Red Virginias, then pressed and lightly stoved. It’s great as the first pipe of the day, waking the palate for the further pleasures of the day.

Dunhill’s My Mixture 965 – A Comment

Dunhill’s My Mixture 965 offers a creamy and smooth English smoke. The Latakia is faded by the Orientals and the Cavendish.

G.L. Pease said in one of his articles that the Dunhill tobacco’s used to have a particular pungent aroma that I think is still a bit discernable in our days, but I have only smoked the bulk format so I’d better try the tin before saying anything more. Else it is a classic smoke that has the right to be hyped and I know why everybody loves it now.

Recommended to all levels of pipers.

Dunhill’s My Mixture 965 is for the connoisseurs of full-bodied tobacco. Choicest small Latakia impart a rich nutty flavor and coolness. Macedonia Bright is added for sweetness. The Brown Cavendish completes the blend that all confirmed pipe smokers love.
