For Dunhill's Early Morning Pipe, sweet Oriental and a bit of Latakia are carefully blended with Bright and Red Virginias, pressed and lightly stoved. It's great as the `first pipe` arousing the palate for the further pleasures of the day.
I just love to have a Latakia kick in the morning as my first pipe smoke. Usually I go for Sutliff's 203 Heavy English as my first pipe of the day, but if I had a bigger budget I would definitively go for Dunhill's EMP as it comes with its own "fines... Read Morese", which you don't find anywhere else. A subtle and gentle Latakia kick from Dunhill is (almost) as good as it gets (but I find it elsewhere also). Read Less

I enjoy this tobacco with a cup of coffee in the mornings at times. Nothing fancy or complex, but decent smoke for a change of pace.
Simple English Mixture
December 17, 2015
By: Patrick E.
A lot has been written about it. In the 80s and 90s it was part of my rotation and I have not smoked it since. Recently I bought a tin to go for it once again, just for a change and revive memories.
It’s a straight forward English mixture, very si... Read Moremplistic though. No complexity of aromas. Nevertheless, nice Virginias and nice Orientals. I cannot make out any Latakia. But there could be a little fire cured Orientals that deliver this hidden smokiness. What I particularly like, is that touch of sourness, that you first smell when opening the tin and accompanies the taste when you smoke it. It may originate from a different fermentation of some Virginias. There is some sweetness, too, but quite discreet. The sharpness rather comes from the Orientals.
EMP is a good smoke for in between. Not for those special, relaxing, delightful moments. EMP has been on the market for one hundred years, it definitely has its place among the classical. Read Less
Jack of All Trades
November 30, 2015
By: Brandon R.
A jack of all trades, but a master of none...I guess I would akin this blend to a red table wine or a cup of breakfast blend coffee - everything that you expect to be there is there, but there isn't anything that stands out and takes the lead. Is it ... Read Morea good English blend? Sure - plenty of people swear by it. But is it a great English blend? I think that would be a personal distinction. Bowl after bowl I would fire this up looking for something - ANYTHING - to take the center stage, and nothing stepped up. Did that ruin it for me? No - I'll probably keep a jarred tin around for when I run out of another English blend and don't feel like opening something else. In the end, I guess I just wanted something more complex and this just wasn't it - I really can't fault it too hard for that. Read Less

Love the packaging. On opening the tin I was greeted by Latakia, not powerful but present. Moisture content out of the tin was just about right. I was however not impressed.

For me this one is still the go to option in the Dunhill range. It has the right amount of nicotine, latakia and overall taste. Always a go too tobacco!

This mild English tobacco is rich & smooth, the best of it's class. Doesn't require special drying. It is superior to the earlier Murray version. If you like Squadron Leader, Skiff, Rattray's Red Rapparee or Professional blends, you'll love Early... Read More Morning, which can be an all day/night smoke. Begins quite mild & gradually builds in taste. Especially recommended in older English pipes, Barling, Charatan, Sasieni etc. The Latakia present is subdued.

It's neck and neck comparing EMP to Dunhill My Mixture 965. I love them both. Opposite ends of the spectrum for me. Do I want sweet and dark ...965. Do I want more tangy sweet and sour taste...EMP.
They are both top notch in my book. EMP is more comp... Read Morelex more interesting flavour ..you want to keep smoking because it changes so much. Like a complex symphony of flavour.

I gave this several tries, and just couldn't bring myself to like it. To me, the overall taste is mild but sour. The Latakia is the only real highlight, and it's quite subtle.

The name is quite fitting. Tastes like many other english blends with Latika. Not a Dunhill stand out like Nightcap, but nice mellow presentation.

For some reason I feel these Dunhill blends are made in vast amounts and as a result the quality control is lacking and the tobacco suffers. Some love it but not me!

Not sure if i got a tainted batch or something, but I was not overly impressed with this flavour. I found it quite chemical tasting, and too sharp. It left its flavour in one of my pipes, and took almost a week to get rid of it fully.

This was the first tobacco I ever tried, and I absolutely adored it. The latakia plays in ever so slightly, and the room note is so nice, having a very bready, biscuity smell to it, along with sweet Virginia hay. I could smoke this all day.
