This was a very disappointing tin of tobacco. From the outset, let me say that I give this one star because of the price. I paid 18!!! dollars for my tin at the local tobacco shop. Perhaps I got hosed. I found an online price of 15$, which is better, but still not great. There are many far better virginia/perique blends out there for under ten bucks a tin. Escudo, for example, which most seem to agree is no crappy blend. Another I would recommend is the new Villiger 1888 Late Night blend, which is just a fantastic mixture of this genre bursting with flavor.

If the price were in line with these blends, I might give this 2 or 2.5 s stars. Why not a higher rating? Because I just cannot get this blend to give me anything but a super mild flavor which just does not justify the premium price. Other than a little perique spiciness (and I do mean a little) there is just nothing here. The virginias are very muted, and the perique is only an afterthought. I expect a lot more flavor from such a super premium. Also, no nicotine. It is like putting 18 very smooth dollars into your pipe and smoking it.

On the positive side, it is well behaved for a VA flake if allowed to dry out some before rubbing out and smoking. It burns well, and smokes cool with measured puffing. For about the same money though I can buy double the amount of any number of McClelland VA's, including Christmas Cheer, which at least offer some VA flavor. For less money I can buy the aforementioned blends, either of which offer the same burning characteristics with much more tobacco flavor.

Interestingly, one of my favorite blends of this ilk, Davidoff's Flake Medallions, is also made presently by Orlick. It is cheaper than the Dunhill (though not cheap, at 14 bucks a tin) but worth it I would say. Flake Medallions has everything good that this Dunhill blend has, with tons more flavor and complexity. Try it, and then tell me if you think I am crazy for bagging on this overpriced creampuff.

I tried Escudo and I thought I simply had a bad experience with that blend, or maybe just that tin. So I tried Dunhill De Luxe Navy Rolls. It was nearly the same experience, but worse. It seems VaPer is just not for me. Here's the good. The burning characteristics are great. It stayed lit with the true light up. There was no gurgle. It burned evenly with almost no dottle. And the room note is pleasant, once your olfactory senses have strained themselves to pick it up. THAT'S IT. Here's the bad. I've learned that, for me, that "Perique spiciness" only means "chemical tongue bite". The smoke itself was 99.9999 flavorless. I rate the nicotine high enough to give me a major headache afterwards. Conclusion. After trying two of the highest rated VaPers and having poor results with both, I'm done with all of them. It isn't for me. Smoke what you like and like what you smoke.

I tried it in the Pharmacy of my good friend Iordanis. He has just received it and I tried it with him.

It is the first and probably the last Dunhill that I try, maybe because the name Dunhill, reminds me of cigarette or something overestimated. I don?t know whether it is one of the good or bad Dunhill, but it has justified the negative view I have ? generally ? for this brand.

First of all, it is a bit dry, it crumbles quite easily, it does not warm up and fills in the bowl easily. We were looking in the center of roll, for the Perique. We didn?t find it. Its flavor though, was there, strong as the snuff was going down.

When you turn it on, you think: ?Something good might happen here?. But when the fire goes towards the bowl, then you feel that you smoke a Dunhill cigarette, which you feel that it burns your throat even more.

I had high hopes for this blend, as I have enjoyed several other Dunhill tobaccos and am fond of a good VaPer.

I don't know if I got unlucky with a bad tin, but this was easily the worst tobacco I have smoked. Dry, tasteless and hot, I could not find anything to enjoy about this blend. If Winston Smith in Orwell's '1984' had smoked a pipe, I can imagine this would have been the government sanctioned tobacco.

Not recommended, and so 1 star from me.
