Escudo or Peterson De Luxe Navy Rolls?

Which one do you prefer?

Ideally you should only vote if you've actually tried both.

I have to give the edge to Escudo, but maybe for reason not completely related to the actual tobacco. I have smoked both and I have a couple tins of Dunhill De luxe Navy Rolls, but I have over twenty tins of Escudo left. About six? years ago, I ran across the odd situation of finding Escudo for cheap on clearance from a small seller that was closing up shop. To add to this, I had a coupon. I was able to buy the Escudo for about $6 per tin, so I bought all they had which I recall was over 30 tins. So Escudo wins on that front for me.Β 

Had I been confronted by the same situation with the then Dunhill rolls, I would have bought all they had of those too πŸ™‚

When I did try them side by side at the time I bought the Escudo, I felt there was possibly a slight edge to the Dunhill, but it wasn’t conclusive and I can’t remember what I noticed that was different. I don’t have tins of either open right now, or I would have freshly smoked both before answering. Your question has me encouraged to do that again in the not too distant future.Β

Wow that's quite a haul, especially given how much Escudo is nowadays. I grabbed the last tin at McCranies for 23 USD. You got 4 for that price.

Anyway, I saw some people argue in the reviews that both blends might be the same but there are definitely noticeable differences.

I agree with you, while unquestionably similar, they are definitely not the same tobacco.

Do it, Ted!!! I would love to hear the outcome. I just passed on some aged escudo and went with some dunhill dnr instead on pipestud last weekend! I'm hoping I chose wisely 😂 I get that you can't go wrong with either though. Cheers!Β

If we go that far, I'll raise you a Three Nuns. IMO a small step ahead of the already fantastic Doblone.

And more readily available. Doblone is always sold out.

Between the two, I'll say Escudo. But I haven't had enough of either aged to say for sure. With Escudo, I found it a decent smoke. But everyone tells me to wait a few years and it'll turn into a golden blend that tastes like angel tears and will fold and stuff itself if you're having a bad day. I've never heard anything bad about De Luxe Navy Rolls either, but the good things aren't said in the same hushed and reverend tones. So if nothing else, my tins of Escudo will fetch a higher price on TinBids if I decide the taste isn't worth my pounds of LBF.

Both are fine tobacco blends but Escudo gets a slight nod due to complexity and strength of flavors. DNR is softer and sweeter and very good in it's own right.Β

I find myself drawn to Escudo Navy De Luxe because of its captivating balance of flavors. The combination of the sweet Virginia tobacco and the lively spiciness of the Perique creates a dance of tastes on my palate that I can't get enough of. With every puff, I'm treated to a symphony of sensations that evolve as I enjoy the bowl.
