Found an old tin of this in my cellar. Such is always welcome.

Unfortunately, I can't really recall what this tasted like fresh, so I can't compare it to this 12 year old tin. I'm not sure if it dumbed down excessively with age, but the word "characterless" that was used by another reviewer is very apt. The topping was very faint and mildly sweet. The color was of the darker brown variety. No taste of the typical orientals here - just a mildly sweet virginia with good body from the various tobaccos. I could not discern any particular flavors with this one. It was mild and cool smoking with no hint of heat or bite. This would be a good one for someone that just wanted to smoke a pipe and didn't much care what went into it. I can certainly understand why this blend didn't make a comeback with many of the other Dunhill blends. Aside from the gross omission of Elizabethan, the new producer did a good job of burying the dead ones.

If you come across a tin of this and it's cheap and you're curious, by all means satisfy your curiousity. If the seller feels they have an aged classic and charges accordinly, take a pass.

Some years ago I picked up five tins of Ready Rubbed from the duty-free shop in Dubai airport. I had never seen this particular Dunhill before, and the tin description piqued my curiosity: was this going to be a Dunhill rival to Samuel Gawith products? I am afraid the smoke was disappointing. There was neither the Dunhill strength nor the Dunhill taste. Utterly unmemorable, so much so that every two to three years I would open a tin just to try and remember what it was like. The last tin was opened recently and did nothing to change my opinion of the mixture. There is nothing obnoxious about the tobacco, but if I was to choose one word to describe it, the word would be `characterless`.
