I'm not a trusty Dunhill smoker so I won't compare the Piccadilly Circus to its prototype but review it as a standalone tobacco. Cold smell is amazingly spicy Latakia-a-like with typical English depth. The nice cut ribbons of VA,L,O looked a bit too moist but I didn't dry it. Packs great and burns wonderful cold and doesn't need much care to unravel a lot of creamy smoke. The first third of the bowl is pure Latakia of fine quality with nice roasting flavors asides a spicy body taste. As the smoke continues there's a diversity of sweet Virginia and orient flavors beautifully supporting the harsh smoky Latakia (still less harsh than Syrian Lata and not too strong in taste at all). None of the tastes get lost on the way so one can still taste all the components within the last tokes I'd consider this one a classical English Mixture of very good quality with a pretty high amount of Cyprian Latakia (over 30% I guess) no added aromas but very nice tobacco flavors. Closes the gap between sweet and spicy in a natural way. Clear recommendation for fans of English blends and Latakia.

Edit 7/18/2019: After having several tins of this I must add that it unfolds more aromas when dried out for 3-4h. I also took a closer look at the tobacco leafs and there's shares of pressed Latakia and Orients.

Similar Blends: As this is a Dunhill London Mixture copy its similar to it of course but I have smoked the Dunhill only a few times so I won't compare..
