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

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.
I think the taste the same.
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.
