This was a more complex, stronger version of the other Dunhill Standard products. The Cyprian Latakia was smoky, woody, earthy, and musty with a very mild sweetness, and took a leading role. The woody, earthy, herbal, vegetative, dryly sour, slightly sweet Orientals were a very noticeable supporter, and also had a pinch or two of spice. The Virginias were a little grassy with some earth, wood and tart and tangy citrus as the base of the blend. The strength was a couple of steps past the medium mark. The taste level was a notch past that. The nic-hit was medium. Didn't bite or get harsh, but had some rough edges. Well blended with a little complexity, it burned clean and a tad warm at a reasonable pace with a very consistent, mildly sweet and more savory, campfire flavor, though you'd risk a hint of harsh cigarette if puffed very fast. Required few relights, and left little moisture in the bowl. Had a lingering, pleasant after taste, and stronger room note. Not an all day smoke, but it was repeatable.

I smoked a couple of tins of this blend which were cellared for 25-30 years, and in perfect conditions! Well, you have to say that Dunhill used to make better tobaccos than nowadays... Probably age took away some edge, and what I found was a rather mellow tobacco with no harshness at all. Rich and heavy, but definitely round and graceful. The virginia base typical of the Standard series is evident and gives great sweetness, and there's less Latakia than you might expect... but of a very high quality. Not as rich and spectacular as some Balkan Sobranie 759 from the same age, but still tasty, fresh and utterly unforgettable. I offered some to friends at a pipe dinner we had some months ago, and the opinions were all highly positive.
