Product: Dunhill Nightcap Bulk
First smoke impression not so good. Harsh, strong, almost dusty. Not what I'd want for a late evening smoke, as the name suggests, at all.

I'm new to pipe tobacco and have been a cigar smoker for a long, long time. I tend to go for the medium/full to full cigars. After trying out a bunch of tobaccos to find my groove, I got some Nightcap. It blew my socks off.

One of Dunhill's "Big Three", Nightcap is the standard by which all other English blends can be judged. Smooth yet potent, Nightcap is perfect for any occasion. Add a tin to your order ... You won't regret it.
