Dunhill - My Mixture BB1938 50g
Perfume and smoke
MM BB1938 is smokey and perfumie. I enjoy and occasional bowl of BB1938, but I could not smoke it all the time. I have smoked it as an all day smoke, but got tired of it near the end of the day. Not because it isn't good, but because it is so rich in flavor. Update: After smoking more Virginia tobaccos, I find this mix less "perfumie". After educating my palate on Va tobaccos, I can appreciate this mix a lot more. I would change my rating to 5 stars now.
Dunhill - Elizabethan Mixture 50g
Sweet and spicy
Elizabethan is great. The Virginias are sweet and Perique is spicy. It was the first VaPer I ever tried, and I keep coming back. The presentation from the tin requires no drying and burns nice and cool.
Dunhill - My Mixture 965 50g
My 'go to' tobacco
I love MM965. I smoke it as my go to. Great full flavor, without being too rich. Very balanced, with leathery and sweet notes. It's easily an all day smoke for me. I've never tasted to old 'glory days' of Dunhill tobaccos, that the old snobs wax poetic about, but I would say this tobacco is perfect.
Dunhill - Ready Rubbed 50g
People are too harsh on this tobacco
Ready Rubbed is an underrated tobacco. Sure it's mellow, but it's great for a first morning smoke. It has a sweet, yet subtle taste. definitely a great intro to both Virginia blends and flake tobacco. Although it is not a flake tobacco, it has the texture and burn qualities of a rubbed out flake. It taught me not to fear flake tobaccos. Although I don't smoke Ready Rubbed all the time, I keep a tin handy in my humidor for those times when I want a light, sweet, slow burning tobacco, to kick back and watch the sunrise. So, if you are looking for a light start to the day, or a foray into Virginias, grab a tin of this great tobacco.
