Dunhill Nightcap (Tin & Bulk)

​Dunhill Nightcap is one of the "big three" Dunhill blends, and is far and away the heftiest of the bunch. There are excellent Virginias and Orientals in here, no doubt, but the real stars of this show are the substantial amount of fine Latakia and the addition of darkly sweet and peppery Perique. For a full-bodied smoke that's the ideal ending to a long day, Nightcap is a superb choice.

Great Blend
Woodsy flavor with a bite like whiskey, this blend is a little too robust for my taste in my short-stemmed briarwood, but is a delight in my church warden. Fantastic aroma. Perfect for a dark, rainy day!

One of my all time favorites.

An aquired taste
I think this is like fine scotch. No one tries it the first time and says Wow this stuff is great. And so it is with this type of tobacco. That being said this is a VERY nice smoke. The smoke is like the flavor, thick, rich and smooth.

Great English blend, one of my top blends all around

Dunhill Nitecap
This is a great end of the day smoke with no tongue bite and pleasant aroma. Will definitely order more.

First English tobacco
Dunhill Nightcap is the first "English" tobacco I smoked after smoking aromatics for 5 plus years. I bought this tobacco because it was highly rated on the website, so I figured why not give it a shot..... First smoke was not particularly enjoyable because I wasn't totally expecting the strength (even though I read reviews and looked at the characteristics of the tobacco). After another few smokes, this blend really grew on me and I will continue to smoke it. Postivies: + Smoky Latakia flavor + Rich and robust + Smooth finish...much like a fine alcoholic beverage Negatives: -Can be a bit to strong for some

Good bulk
Dunhill night cap was one of my first heavy English type tobaccos. I bought an ounce thinking I would probably take a long time to smoke through it. I was wrong. I smoked through that fist ounce with the quickness. Then I proceeded to by more. I really enjoy the bulk version of night cap. I highly recommend this blend. I also want to give a shout out to for yet another fast and smooth transaction. There's a reason I keep coming back. Thank you P&C!

A Superb Alternative to a Liquid "Nightcap"
I'm only an occasional smoker, but I've been puffing a pipe off and on for nearly 5 years now. I must say, this blend is nearly one of the best that I've come across. Rich, smooth, and mellow, this tobacco blend may just be the perfect thing for me to relax with at the end of a long day. It reminds me of the things I love most in a nice peat-y scotch, and is a great stand in when I can't get my hands on something from Islay.

My All Day Smoke
The best pipe tobacco I have had so far! For those who are trying to quit cigars, this is it! It is strong and robust just like a cigar. The flavor in the beginning might throw you off a little... but keep smoking it, and I guarantee that you will enjoy it after a few bowls! This blend has saved me hundreds of dollars and has helped me get off of cigars, thus helping me gain control again where I can still enjoy a cigar, but without getting trapped back into it. A MUST HAVE! Thanks Dunhill!

Great smoke!
I love sitting on the porch in the mornings with a cup of joe and relaxing with this full bodied blend. One of my new favorites!

Same Dunhill quality to be expected
After having smoked Night Cap from the tin first and loving it. I decided to buy a pound for my rotation. The bulk doesn't seem to have any variation in flavor or quality from the tinned product. Moisture was just right. Lovely Smokey, leathery and spicy with a incensy, smokey room note. I am a Perique freak. The price is right for this caliber of an English! Cheaper than getting it at your local B&M.

Not for me...
I'm relatively new but thought I would give this English a try... big mistake! When the box arrived it wreaked like a car tire factory from this blend! It was such a strong smell I thought it would infect the other tobaccos in the box. Once I mustered the courage to try it, I was disappointed to find it smoked and tasted just as offensive as it smelled. Bad tongue bite too. Just not for me...

Like a single malt tobacco!
Beautiful nose right out of the package. It has the note of a strong single malt scotch, and smokes like one too! Great aroma, and perfect right before bed time.

Good, strong stuff!
I had to make a mental note to use one of my smaller pipes after attempting to smoke a full bowl with my reading pipe... The taste is amazing and I love the smell of the tobacco as well. This really is a perfect tobacco to enjoy just before bed-time.

A wonderful full body pipe tobacco with no bite!
This is my second, and more serious, foray into pipe smoking. I have been testing OTC blends, and have liked some of them. Dunhill Nightcap is my first walk attempt into a higher end tobacco, and I can understand why Nightcap is liked. Upon opening the tin, the strong Latakia odor (smokey goodness) won me over, and smoking my first bowl sealed the "I love this blend" deal. Full body smoke, burns well and cool. Virtually no "bite", and I tend to smoke hot. I really enjoy this blend, and I have ordered another 3 tins! If you are new to pipe smoking, and are looking for a full flavor tobacco that doesn't bite, try Dunhill Nightcap.

lots of reviews for a reason, this stuff means business
Having just quit cigarettes with the assistance of a briar pipe (and beginning a new obsession) i decided to have a crack at the most reviewed, nicotine heavy tobacco i could find. I was pleasantly surprised. Smooth smoke, bold flavor, heavy nicotine (for when the cigarette smoker in me needs to be quelled) and an overall satisfactory experience. Im not an expert by any means, but this blend is going to be a regular purchase for the forseeable future.

Great Taste and Historic Brand
I loved this tobacco and will be ordering more. However, when I first opened the bag, I noticed a unique smell, a smell that I have smelled before. I was able to pinpoint it and I was wondering why this is, but why does it smell like snuff tobacco? Is it just my weird sense of smell, or is this normal? Great tobacco, I loved every minute of the smoke, and have been storing some to try it aged as well.

Almost Zagreb
This is a delicious blend of my two favorite tobaccos: latakia and perique to which I was introduced while in my 20s. As you probably know, presently only 16 acres of perique are cultivated ,in my native Louisiana in St. James Parish which is about 140 miles from my home, depending. Nightcap by Dunhill is a delight, excellent for a late afternoon smoke to flavorfully ease you into a pleasant evening.

Yes and No
Not the same amount of Latakia as the old original but still a great English blend with a more fragrant aroma now.

Quality blend, but past its prime.
A high-quality product, very well packaged, but there are just too many better english blends out there for this to be a 5-Star blend. Very hot burning yet, curiously, hard to keep lit. This reminded me of when you are half-way through a sandwich and wind up just picking out the very tasty meat because the bread, cheese, etc. just weren't good enough to justify the calories.

Not as robust in flavor
Not as robust in flavor as it was 10+ years ago nor as varied in flavor. Your Nightcap Match is more interesting.

A Unique Blend
I’ve heard so much about this blend that I had to try it. It doesn’t easily fit taste categories; it has a robust flavor that is pleasant and not overwhelming, as many non-aeromatic blends are. Certainly worth trying no matter what your predominant tastes in tobacco are.

Fantastic, but..
This tobacco is worth its praise. Mushroomy, Smokey, spicy, sweet etc. Just a wonderful tobacco, but.. both tins I purchased died very quickly. They became flat, no nicotine punch to speak of, and lost all of its flavor. This could be a freak problem, but seeing as how wonderful the tobacco was, the fall was that much more disappointing--hence the two stars.

Well done
Strong, bold, and smooth. This has become one of my favorite smokes

Dunhill Nightcap
I purchased a Tin of this to try. I really liked it strong but no to strong for a nightcap. It’s been the last thing i smoke each night and some mornings too.
Customer Testimonials
This is THE smoothest tobacco I have ever had the pleasure of smoking. Sure, the tin note smells of old shoe leather (I personally love it) but when you pack a bowl and light it up, you will enjoy a bold and robust flavor that can only be described as a light "cream nut" or something of the like. I was so curious about this blend from YouTube reviews and even a little scared to try it. Keep in mind, I am a greenhorn piper...therefore, my knowledge of tobaccos and pipes is low. However as a former cigarette smoker and a current vaper (mod user), the taste and "robustness" of this blend is rather easy to smoke due to the smooth burn nightcap lends itself to. Despite the name, I really do enjoy smoking a bowl of this after work in the early evening and right before I go to bed. This blend does make me sleepy due to the higher nicotine level than others. If you like or love English blends and haven't tried this one yet, you won't be disappointed!
I am either very picky, or there are a lot of easily amused people. If you want a smoke that will stop Dunhill Nightcap dead in its tracks, mix some Peter Stokkebye Black Latakia (legendary), and Peter Stokkebye English Luxury. Start around 1:4 and move up the scale. MARVELOUS!....and a LOT less expensive. Notice I didn't say cheaper? And if you want to really do it right, first age the PS about 6-8 months. I'll finish this, my first batch of Nightcap, but won't be ordering more.
Very well blend of tobaccos that I enjoy. I will definitely be keeping it in my daily rotation for the evening hours.
Its awsome a nice long rich smoke im having some right now better then a bed time story lol thanks guys!
Dunhill Nightcap satisfies like a full 6 course meal, with a rich decadent chocolate mousse & vintage scotch dram for desert! Strong rich Latakia and accompaniments blend in a spicy smokey olfactory explosion that both relax and excite to make one feel alive and ready for more of life's celebrations, as Dunhill's Nightcap truly is!
Having heard so much about this tobacco I had to drop two ounces into the cart. I just smoked a bowl of it last night and it has lived up to the hype! Lots of good Latakia smokiness balanced with some perique and Virginias. It's a full bodied smoke that is full of espresso, nut and dark fruit flavours. The room note is wonderful and it was definitely a great way to end my night paired with my favourite IPA.
Stronger than I'm used to, Molto Dolce and Odin's Wind. It took several bowl fulls to start to appreciate the taste and smokability???. I find I am liking it more with every bowl full.
I absolutely enjoy this blend.
I'm smoking a bowl of this right now! This is a very nice, creamy tobacco. It's a wonderful smoke any time of day. My favorite!
I bought this as my first real pipe tobacco. I was discourage by a local tobacconist but I absolutely love this tobacco. Go for it!
Does anyone remember the way Dunhill Nightcap used to be, say in the mid 1960's? It's still good now, but I remember it to be more complex and easier on the palate. So now I try to tweak MY Own Blend to try to reconstruct this venerable blend. So far, best results come from a 38% Red Virgina, 25% Latakia, 25% Oriental, 12% Perique. I named it Nightcap REDUX. When the package arrives, I crumble some Escudo flake or Davidoff Flake on top, as I still don't know what the secret ingredient of the original Nightcap was. I am getting closer, and would welcome some hints.
Being new to pipes I gave this a try, and while I'm probably stating what is close to sacrilegious, I'm putting this in an airtight mason jar and letting it sit for a while. Way too strong for me right now. I will have to come back to this in a month or two. Yikes!
Very smooth .. I loved it... although the name implies its a nighttime thing I found it was awesome all day long ...consider new name? Morning,noon and nightcap :)
Full flavored, Review says all day Blend? I dont think I would smoke it all day, because the tast would would get old. I also need to smoke it outside, because my wife hates the fragrance. This is a good, even with a new pipe It smokes a little hot but no tounge Bite. Smoking it out of a large bowl and a new pipe, one relite with the new pipe. Really good tast after the relite, no Bite!!! Monday 2/2/2015 just smoke it all day so far. no bite. For me not a all day smoke! Alternating it would not be bad. For me I'll be sitting out back with a Rum and Coke and Nightcap!
I purchased the dunhill night cap thinking it would be good but I was completely wrong first off the smell of the tobacco was god awful it actually made me wrech and the taste was none to good either terrible product not worth it if I had to rate it on a scale of 1-10 it would be a one hands down
I love Dunhill Nightcap its one of my favorite tobaccos I have it anytime of day it's perfect for when you need to wind down after a long days work.
The third lat blend I've tried. They're all pretty tasty. This one is tops. The nic hit can remind you of when you first smoked cigars if you're not careful. Smaller bowls, imho, however advocates of big bowls suggest they bring out even MORE flavor. You can forget about the nicotine rather easily due to the tremendous taste, and it is not for the feint of heart.
Just finished my first bowl of this blend and am very satisfied. As other have said, it seems to get better as the bowl goes on. Very smooth, very relaxing, very tasty. Not much more to say - this is what I am looking for in a pipe tobacco.
I haven't been smoking a pipe for too long so I was a bit hesitant to try a stronger tobacco with Latakia in it. After reading the positive reviews on the P & C web site, I wanted to give it a try. The more I smoke this blend, the more I like it. When I light up a bowl, it seems to get better the further down it burns. I don't have the most discerning pallet, but all I can say is that the flavor is outstanding! I think this is becoming one of my favorite tobaccos as I want to smoke it every evening to relax. If you smoke a big bowl in one sitting, you will feel the nicotine. If you want a strong English blend that will relax you, Nightcap is the one.
This is now my all day all night smoke. If I had a wash tub to smoke it out of I would. Not the person to ask to pick out flavors. But if you like latakia this is it. Leaves a nice sweet taste in your mouth. The nicotine is no big deal. But it was the only thing that helped me quit smoking cigarettes. I see it's on back order. I should be telling you all it sucks!!! HAHA
It's listed as full flavored....and by golly it definitely is! This is a great tobacco. Not a full draw kind of smoke in my opinion, but doesn't need to be sipped on either. It has a nice blend of flavors going on all through the bowl with the Virginias, Orientals, and Latakia. sweet (just enough), spicy and smoky all at the same time. I know that this is now at the top of my list for an English blend. I am an aro fan too, but this is a must for me and will always have some on hand.
This has a great taste, easy to light, very pleasant smell. Reminds me of a peaked scotch. The only problem I have is personal. I am not used to tobaccos that have a big nicotine punch, so I only smoke a half bowl of this. If you are used to that then there should be no problem. I also spent time aging it with oak pieces for half a year and the taste became much smoother and had a vanilla element added.
The Pipes and Cigars description is spot on; a rich, full-bodied smoke perfect for the back porch at the end of the day. I'll always keep this one in stock.
Back in 2002 when I first started smoking a pipe this was the first blend I tried. Still enjoying it to this day. dont smoke big bowls of this or else it will knock you upside the head with the nicotine. But I reccomend checking it out if you like full blends.
This stuff's very good, very simple and bold, yet elusive... the smoke seems to have such a smooth "texture" to it, it burns pretty cool as well. One of my favorite English blends.
I'll make it short and sweet, Nightcap is the best diversion from the others by far. Great rich blend, and I recommend it highly. Try it.
Rich , long lasting , smooth and relaxing , great in the early mornings or before bed 9/10
This is some good stuff! One of my long time favorites. Ive tried the bulk but i only smoke it on special evenings (very smoky and full flavored) so i stick with the tins. Tins can be a little damp (not wet or pg to death) but five min rest before packing seems to be about perfect to dry it right. My old lady cant stand it (Wife repellent), even the smell of it in tin gets her all choked up. I use this to my advantage to keep her outa my shop lol. All in all a great tobacco, brings me right back to wilderness camping in Canada when I was a kid.
I opened this up and the tin note is a nice smoky smell. I've heard its hit and miss on the moisture level, but mine was dry enough to pack right away. The initial flavor is smoky but has a delicate english spice to it. Semi sweet notes throughout, burned easy and long. I smoked it for an hour and a half. It smoked dry and cool and left a nice ash for an easy clean up. I really liked this blend, it was full bodied and strong. My wife said the room note wasn't as smoky as other English blends I have and that it almost had a sweet smelling aroma. Rotation worthy or sharing with friends. Take it low and slow.
Let me begin by saying how I love the fast shipping at P&C. Nightcap is a very stout mixture and the smell hits as soon as the seal is broken on the tin. It seems earthy and smoky at the same time. It serves best after loosening the tobacco in the tin, then putting a little on paper to dry and breathe. After it is allowed to breath and settle down, pack it into the pipe moderately loose. After lighting, the peppery spice of Latika will hit, but not too overly strong. Nightcap is certainly strong, so sip it. It has enough nic to last you the night, but make sure you have a cool drink on hand to rinse the palate, and the flavor will return again and again to the end.
Was really mislead by many YouTube videos claiming this blend was a knockout, blow your head off, hallucinate kind of blend. Not so much. Very bold yes, smooth and creamy with a decent nicotine level but nothing over the top. A really good blend. I smoke it in a smaller bowl and if I want more I pack it again. I think that's where guys go wrong, by packing huge bowls. Don't be intimidated try some, I did and I like it anytime of the day.
An excellent, complex English blend. Full flavored but not overpowering. An excellent afternoon or evening smoke.
