Forgive the long review here, but there's a lot to say about this one...and some of it has to do with politics and dates and marketing. A friend of mine recommended this while on a trip to San Francisco - so I stopped into the now gone Dunhill's store there and took a whiff - and promptly bought a tin. Even to this old puffer of flakes and strong English blends this is without question the best smelling tobacco in the universe - you literally are tempted to pop a handful into your mouth. I think it must also be given a dose of PG as it stays "moist" in the very large tin for extreme periods. Vanilla...OK, but there's a sort of cocoa undertone too that gives it a deeper note...just wonderful! Smoking characteristics are very easy...a very large bowl fluffs up on the charring light and then greatly diminishes in volume so that a fairly well-packed bowl becomes about a 3/4 load. Agreed that it burns very fast but you don't need to be super careful to enjoy it. Never had any issue with bite. Certainly a mild smoking experience - with one of the VERY few room notes I can get away with anywhere in this tobacco reviling world - this one produces a reaction similar to the old phrase, "men envy me, women want me". Even though the attraction for me is the aroma, it also has a decent tobacco flavor after the topping has burned away somewhat...after all it IS Dunhill's. I haven't noticed that it stinks up a bowl much, but then I'm careful not to smoke it in dedicated briars...it works nicely in a meershaum. Dunhill's has apparently closed most of their US stores (I've heard NYC will stay and that LA might too) but this is worth the effort to track down and secure. Nearly a year ago a BIG cubish tin cost me just $15 (I smoke cigars too, so pipe tobacco costs seem, well, like a joke) and it's well worth that minimal investment if all you did was just open the tin now and then and take a great big whiff! Going to a party or out on the town and don't what to see women go green and men give you the "fisheye" - take this stuff along and women will say," now, that's the kind of tobacco I like (while giving their cigar-smoking dates the elbow) and guys that aren't "allowed" to light up will stare at you wistfully and say, "I always did want to smoke a pipe". And it happens again and again.

Edit in March 2018: still love this stuff...It’s none other than the world renowned Lane Limited 1Q. The best selling tobacco in the world, so they say.

Excellent aromatic. Quite different from other Cavendish aromatics I tried. It's not the sticky stuff found in our local tobacconists. This is mostly golden strips with a little black Cavendish and moderate vanilla flavoring dressing. At first I was afraid it will burn hot , but its not its quite mild and cool smoke. Aroma is a little bit more "sophisticated" and gentle then other aromatic blends. It's definitely a quality mixture worthwhile smoking once in a while.

Ah, dunhill A21000 (what kind of name is that?) for me has achieved aromatic nirvana. I found this blend in bulk on line here in the US...23 bucks per pound and originally ordered a sample along with my usual EMP. Out of the bag it was perfect in every way, cut,moisture level and aroma. Upon being lit the mild, smooth cavendish blend was a mouth full of creamy aromatic bliss with a casing that stayed well in the background and let the quality tobacco taste shine through with nary a bite in site. If you are a smoker that craves his weed laced with enriched plutonium then this is not a blend for you...a sweet, rich mild blend that is a definite crowd pleaser.

Well, this is my first review. If number of bowls smoked is the scale by which we judge Pipe smoking maturity, then I am a beginer. If years make the scale legend, then I am an advanced beginner...

I have been smoking pipes for over 6 years. I smoke about once/month during the winter season and very rarely during the warmer months.

My first tobacco was a local tabaccanists Cavendish blend. I had to smoke aromatics due to the wife...she will not tolerate smoking (neither of us smoke or have smoked in our entire life, before I took up the pipe).

My second blend was the Dunhill 21000...check mate! I hpurchased a few tins from the SF Dunhill store, before closing. I love this tobacco. Yes, I tried Dunhill EMP and love that as well, but the 2100 has a room note that pleases my wife and a flavor that pleases me. Granted, I am certain I do not like the flavor as much as some of the folks here describe there English Blends, but I am satisfied. I tried to make a permanent switch to EMP, but lack of added flavor and my wife complaining, brought me back to 21000.

I love everything about this blend. I purchased 4 tins from Dunhill NY and have them cellar'd...

Thanks for reading...
