Notes: Smoked in various pipes, from various vintages, all of them from the 1970's or so. No longer manufactured, this is the famous My Mixture No. 1167 aka Dunhill's Cuba.

Appearance: Light dullish brown overall with the color of cigars and perhaps 10% dark strands mixed throughout a thinnish medium cut ribbon, fully rubbed out.

Aroma: Dusty, much like the aroma of old leather-bound books you might find sitting in the infrequented corner of the basement level of your public library. Cigar leaf is prominent on the nose, as is sweet Japanese plum, cherry pit, ripe white peach, and chocolate.

Taste: A wonderfully strong cigar flavor, which is very reminiscent of the old La Corona Cuban cigars from the 1950's and '60's. These had a wonderful strength, the rich spiciness of leather and forest earth, but without a hint of bitterness. 1167 also has good plum flavor and nice pure straightforward tobacco flavor without adornment. Ultimately it is spicy at the expense of being a little middle-heavy and lacks the depth that latakia might help to add, rounding out such a blend.

Comparisons: Fuller flavor than GLP Robusto or Fox's The Banker's; more cigar flavor than Alfred's Own.

Bottom Line: No longer available. For those who wish to relive the days of the pre-Embargo Cuban cigars while smoking a pipe, this comes closer than any other cigar-leaf blend ever will. For the less sentimental amongst us, this is a nice cigar-leaf blend which adds zest to a good pipe tobacco base, but is a fairly even mix of the two flavors.
