I'm presently going through a bunch of old tins of Dunhill. This one I should have skipped. It's a terrible tasting pseudo-aromatic that does absolutely nothing right. It's not a decent virginia with a good choice of top note, nor is is a decent aromatic with a little unflavored virginia or burley to smooth and dry it out. It's simply a garbage blend that Dunhill slapped together to make headway into the aromatic-smoking American market, and it failed miserably. May it rest in peace forever. The other poster was correct; if you simply MUST smoke an aromatic with the name "Dunhill" on it, try the Gold Blend instead. I wouldn't call it good but it's way better than this.
This was a tobacco blend that was passed around four or five years ago at one of my pipe club meetings. It was a rather mild and unobtrusive smoke that was loaded with outstanding, well aged Virginia leaf and steam pressed Black Cavendish that added body and an additional flavoring that was very discreet and absolutely made the smoking experience terrific! It was not a particularly sweet taste, but not tangy either - just rock solid tobacco.
If you do enjoy just a smidgen of extra flavoring in your pipe tobacco, Dunhill's Golden Hours (if you can find it) might just be a good choice. It was fully rubbed out and the ribbon leaf was short and thick, which made it easy to pack and smoke. I am sure the tin we smoked was quite aged, and perhaps that is why it was such a mellow smoke.
