A full bodied tobacco with choice Latakia imparts a rich nutty flavor and coolness. Macedonia bright is added for sweetness. Brown Cavendish completes the blend that pipe smokers love.

In both the Match and the original Dunhill version, the latakia is a minor player, but aids the Oriental/Turkish in regard to the smokey, woodsy quality of the blend. The spice from the Orientals is lightly moderate. The Virginia is sweet and grassy with a touch of earth. The brown cavendish amplifies the sweetness and adds a slight nuttiness. There's a slight mustiness and it has a nice, light creamy taste. The differences are that the Virginia in the original is a little grassier, a shade less sweeter with a touch more spice from the Orientals. The Match burns a little slower and cooler. Both burn clean with very little moisture. It’s hard to tell one from the other unless you are working to decide for which is which.

I gave three stars to the original.
