A very dark, almost black, English style mixture. A hearty
helping of rich, spicy Latakia is combined with matured
Virginia and shag cut black stoved Virginia. A true Latakia
lovers delight, which is surprisingly cool burning.
Medium/Strong - Savoury

With the coming of colder weather, I reach for English/Oriental mixtures. I had a tin of Day's End set aside for quite sometime, it has finally succumbed to the match.

In a word (or two): good stuff. The sweetness of the Virginias, the tangy sweetness of the Orientals and/or Perique, just enough Latakia, but not too much. I would be a bigger fan, and award a fourth star, but I do find it just slightly too sweet for my liking, maybe it's perfect for you?

As an aside...While I was going through my tin of this, for comparison's sake, I pulled out my last tin of Nightcap blended by Murray's. Time hadn't been good to Nightcap: it became bland and insipid. The seal of the tin was good, there was no rust. How sad! I would choose a tin of Day's End over an old tin of Nightcap in a heartbeat...

Simply amazing, awesome nic hit and smokes great and tastes nice and spicy with a very very small hint of sweetness. Almost like milk and honey....very smooth

I apologize to you Aromatic lovers out there in advance. Please forgive my inexperience

Having been the manager of a Cuban cigar store for years I have to say upfront that I certainly have developed a taste for stronger tobaccos. I have tried to enjoy a pipe on several occasions in my years but never really "got" what the big deal was. I was always finding I would pick up the cigars again and neglect the pipe for a few years before I would think "I must be missing something" and try again. The problem was I was always drawn towards the Aromatics. Well, I have decided after smoking 2 tins of this blend that the Aromatics were the problem. I found this blend to be the smokey, full flavored tobacco that I did not know existed. It lacks the chemical/additive notes that always left a poor impression on me. Now I can't wait to get home to walk the dog at night with a bowl of this stuff.

Now that I feel that I "get it" I am looking forward to expanding my pipe tobacco horizons (including aromatics ...I think buying the cheap drug store crap might have been part of the problem)

Recommended in my limited experience!

I have tasted Dunhill's Night Cap only once, so I can not make a direct comparison between the original and Days End, Mr. B's variation on the Night Cap theme.

However, being a great fan of Latakia and English/Balkan blends, I can say that this offering has a generous portion of Latakia and a noticeable flavour note from the Perique.

Upon first opening, the tin aroma fairly burst forward with a complex tobacco aroma with a pleasing fermented fruity tang that was only faintly evident in the smoking. The tobacco was rather dry even at first opening. I immediately transferred it from the tin to an air tight glass jar.

I experience mild tongue bite when smoking it in a cob but none in my Peterson P-Lip. I suspect my over windy smoking style is the real culprit.

I quite like Days End and do tend to use it as my evening and late night smoke. I will probably buy more in the future.
