A classic for a reason
This is a manly smoke & may be intimidating to some newer pipe smokers but it’s popularity and consistent positive reviews shouldn’t be disregarded. They are a testament to its legacy as a classic. It’s has a lovely tobacco aroma and is just a perfect English blend. The flavor is unadulterated tobacco joy. Don’t be shy & be your own judge.

Believe the hype, it is that good!
I wondered, could this be as good as all the reviews? Yes,yes it is. A wonderfully deep n rich Smokey leather flavor combines with a slightly spicy n sour undertones. Retrohale is spicy and has some staying power. You feel this blend, it’s robust and filling. Nice nic hit. My only regret, waiting so long to try this.

Balanced and simple
Honestly I did not know what to expect with this one. I’ve heard so many positive things, but I wanted to go into it with my own perception. This blend does something unique while it’s on your tongue, the middle of your tongue has just a full smooth almost tasteless smoke, while the edges of your tongue are experiencing smoky, Tangy, and leathery. It’s almost like experiencing that one slow song on a fast metal album. It does a really good job to balance out what would otherwise be a giant disarray of too much flavor. Where it almost feels like it’s missing something with that almost flavorless smooth smoke in the middle of your tongue, it actually brings more than enough to each bowl, so much balance. And balance is definitely a great word. I don’t think I’ve tasted an English blend that had this much balance. Great blend

Delightful. A smooth and smoky flavored blend with perfumey notes and a little spice here and there. Deep rich and delicious. This will be a regular smoke for sure.

Not disappointed!
This is a full bodied tobacco that doesn’t overwhelm the room. It’s well balanced. It has a distinct, yet inviting, aroma. And the Latakia and Perique mix is superb. In fact, I’m considering lighting some up now as I’m writing this! Perterson’s Nightcap will be a regularly stocked pipe tobacco in my collection.

Peterson nightcap is now my favorite tobacco!!
I wrote a review on the Peterson nightcap tobacco last month. It was a little premature because I was not impressed with the aroma of the tobacco when I opened the can. I did however like the taste and smoke of it. The room aroma is pleasant and smoke is great and smooth and cool. I've since become a huge fan of Peterson nightcap and ordered more of it from p&c. Also the Early morning and others. My order is expected to arrive soon and I can't wait to try them all.

Awesome.
My favorite blend of the 50 or so i have tried. I was so disappointed when i heard Dunhill shutdown and i couldnt get it anymore. I just found out peterson is making this now, just got my order yesterday and yes i believe this is definitely the same as the Dunhill.

Not what I expected
I quit smoking cigarettes Feb. 2019 and almost started up again until a friend recommended I try smoking a pipe and not inhale. I started smoking a pipe almost a year ago and so I am still new and learning about the many pipes and pipe tobacco. My first tobacco is captain black and I liked it but still explore new ones. I found the Mac baren blends are very nice and love them. I've aquired many pipes now and have one favorite pipe that I love and it happens to be a Peterson system Plip pipe. So I figured from reading the reviews of Peterson nightcap that it would be the best. As I stated, I'm still new at the world of pipe smoking and was excited to try the nightcap tobacco. When I opened the can, I was not impressed with the aroma because it smelled sour to me. But after smoking a few bowls I have gotten used to the smell and enjoy the taste. It's a little stronger than I am used to but I do enjoy the flavor I don't notice a sweet aroma in the room but it is pleasant. I don't smoke it as a daily tobacco but it is relaxing in the evening. I'm going to try other Peterson tobacco blends and I will keep the nightcap on hand for my rotation.

Excellent English blend! Nightcap lives
Excellent English blend! Nightcap lives up to the hype. Smooth Latakia forward blend with a subtle hint of sweetness. Worth every penny!

Love It!
I found Nirvana! It is ribbon-cut, so I packed it gently and tamped delicately, and it exceeded my wildest dreams. It smoked cool, and the full-flavored tobacco was loaded with complex tastes, all the way to the dottle. It relaxed me and made me feel totally at ease. It will be a standard part of my rotation.

So I've only done one smoke. But prominent on the nose taste is a lot more pepper than I expected. Like the richness, but didn't expect the dominant flavor and smell to be pepper.

This is my favorite tobacco.
This is my favorite tobacco. I was unhappy when Dunhill closed it's doors but Peterson saved me by starting to sell Nightcap, I tried a tin and could not taste the difference from the original. I only smoke latakia blends and this one delivers the best taste, I never experience bite or harsh after taste.

Relatively new to pipe smoking
Relatively new to pipe smoking and have found this blend to be one of my favorites as I experiment with other offerings. To me, it is very flavorful and has a nice spice.

Just buy it, don’t knock it til you’ve tried it!
I just had to see what the hype was about with this Night cap. It’s safe to say I smoked my entire shipment. This is everything I am looking for in a smoke. I didn’t have a pleasure to smoke the previous blend, so I can’t compare. I’m assured the blend hasn’t changed, but some are convinced it’s different. This is something they need to offer in bulk because I would buy this by the pound. My ol lady hates it, and hates the smell but she is a cigarette smoker and has no taste for pipe tobacco. I have used pipe tobacco to keep me off the American Spirits and full bodied blends like these keep me satisfied. If you enjoy this I recommend also trying Bow legged bear, purple cow, and if burley is your thing, Big Burley #103.

Loved
A solid blend. Have been slowly dipping into the world of Peterson/Dublin, and have not been disappointed yet. I received this tin along with De luxe navy rolls and Sweet Killarney, so I would have a variety. After sampling the other two first and drifting to Nightcap in the evening I’ll admit it threw me back a bit with the Latakia, so I let it sit for about a month before I tried again. After knowing what I was smoking, it was the most relaxing experience. Definitely a smoke for around a campfire, or sitting on the porch on a fall night. The smokiness of the Latakia reminds me of my grandfathers pipe, while the perique smooths out the bowl enough relax while smoking. A good nicotine hit, but as I said, a most solid smoke.

Time for a Nightcap
I’m as novice as they get when it comes to pipe smoking and I have tried several samplers but this blend is one of my favorites. This is a flavorful blend with a nice nicotine kick. The tin, to me, had more of a burnt aroma but when packed properly and smoked it really balances out. Ive only had a few Peterson brands, and certainly looking forward to trying more.

This was my first premium
This was my first premium pipe tobacco back in 2010. It is no different from the Dunhill version. It does have a very pungent room note that is great for social distancing in 2020. :-) Great strong English flavor blend, the Nicotine is medium but on the top end of medium.

Ok first takes couple go
Ok first takes couple go around to get accustomed to the flavor. I really enjoy the smell of the room notes. The aroma you get reminds me of Thanksgiving dinner for some reason. Now I had to smoke several bowls to of this to figure out that I really enjoy it and will definitely be purchasing again. Have to try Peterson other blends for sure now

Smokes well , its a great way to end the day. The aroma very pleasant. Interest in this was to see if the smoke ,taste and aroma, was the way. I remembered it 30yrs ago. The answer Yes. Thank you for bringing it back😎.

Good burning, pleasant smell, with sweet after taste.
This has become my 2nd favorite blend. I find it is a bit strong (which I like) with a hint of what I remember old tobaccos smelling like as a child but without the bite like some of the other reviews claim. However, I don't "rush" a bowl and tend to sip while breathing through my nose. I also noticed that I can taste a sweetness left in my mouth hours later after smoking which I find pleasant. This blend packs well and burns evenly with only having to light it a couple times and the smoothness really comes through about 2/3rds through a bowl. As far as room notes, I find it a bit mellow and the Mrs. doesn't seem bothered by it so that's a win in my book.

Nice anytime bowl. Enough smoky Latakia to have a change of pace from typical aros. I’m no tobacconist, and I guess this is more an English blend, I like it, similar to Frog Morton Cellar in my eyes.

Stout. This was the only second english blend I had ever triedn and Ive got to say that probably wasn't in my best interest, but man is it delicious. Nightcap is strong in flavor, nicotine, and room note. If you like Heavy english you'll enjoy this one. It's one i'll keep around.

Good, but not as good as I expected from the hype
Dunhill/Peterson has an amazing reputation, but I just don't see it. The flavor was top notch, but it didn't burn well and had some of the worst tongue bite i've had. I've almost finished the tin, and every smoke I find myself relighting all the time and I've tried both the three-step pack and the Frank method. Maybe it's the lighting that cause the tongue bite or the smaller bowl of my pipe, either way, not super impressed.

If you love English Latakia blends, you must try this. Experienced smokers recommended
I recently tried this tobacco for the very first time, 10/29/20, around 930 at night on my porch. After watching reviews and reading reviews, I really didn’t know what to expect after opening the 10 and the note was completely different than what I thought it would be. Sticking my nose in there, and taking a big sniff, it brought me back to memories of enjoying Crown achievement with friends. There is a bit of controversy with this blend, as this is considered to be one of the heavier English blends on the market. Many people disagree, and that’s why it can be a bit of a controversy. I do have to agree, this is a very heavy blend, definitely made for experienced Latakia smokers. The tin note was absolutely phenomenal, and made me salivate while smelling it. It was perfect Goldilocks, and I could pack it directly out of the tin. Stays lit extremely well, even on a blustery evening on my porch. The consistency is just phenomenal, followed by a great taste. It felt full in your mouth, almost as if there was a substance to chew. It gave me everything I was looking for in a tobacco. Now the heavy part, the nicotine content, yes is definitely a little bit higher. I am a nicotine heavy weight, and I definitely began to feel it after only two or three nostril exhales. This is a fantastic tobacco, I definitely recommend it, but I definitely recommend it to someone who is a little bit more experienced in the English Latakia department. Enjoy, and enjoy responsibly

Reviewing now, after having just bought my second tin. I find Black House to have pleasantly strong aroma that doesn't let on how deliciously potent it is. It's a tobacco that has to be sipped, or else I find it has a bite. It's not a smoke I'd call recreation.4.5/5

Second favorite blend so far...
Love the flavor of this Nightcap. This is my second favorite tobacco, my first being Plumb pudding. Im a sucker for English blends. Nightcap is strong but not to strong, it has a great finish with a little kick. I always keep a tin of this on hand.

A great smoke to end the day. I have to admit the Nicotine hits me afterwards and gets me sleepy. The blend I use to end my day and I highly recommend it.
5 out of 5
Yes for me
Very tasty. Does really hit the spot after a 20hr day. I especially love the fact it smells like beef jerky, however doesn't taste like it. Comparable to the plum pudding, however it's already ribboned, so no prep, and it's less expensive.

Exceptional Smoke
Excellent evening smoke. By far my favorite English blend. The tin arrived very well sealed, so much so that it took me a good while to get it open. The moisture level was perfect and it has a healthy nicotine kick as is expected. This will continue to be a standard in my rotation.

Slight sweet, Smokey bbq goodness. Like beef jerky. Slight pepper after taste

Mellow and relaxing experience with a clean burn throughout the bowl.
Very mellow and clean burning. As the name implies, it helps take the edge off of a long day. As a first time user of this, it gives me the hint of lavender and perhaps even a touch of menthol although those aren't part of the composition. Interested in hearing if others have had a similar experience.

Is this akin to marital relations?
I had my first tobaccasm. This is it: Peterson's Nightcap (an exquisitely precise product name). I've had many a blend from this treasured site, but nothing compares to Nightcap. The center of my tongue reacted with no less than a umami reaction. As I first smoked, my wife said that I sounded as if I were having relations. It is that good. Every order, here on out, will include this superlative blend. Thank the Good Lord I have taste buds and olfactory sensors to appreciate this triumph.

Glad it’s back!
The taste, mouth feel, and aroma is indistinguishable from the dunhill nightcap. All I would say is that for some reason it doesn’t burn well at first so it needs a couple weeks to oxidize before use.

Balkans are my favorite. Many though leave one feeling something is missing or off balance flavor wise. This one hits everything just right. There are many tobaccos lost to days gone by, but I am glad Black House is here to fill the void.

Sometimes Only Nightcap Will Do
The only thing I can add about Nightcap, on what's been written extensively, is sometimes only Nightcap will do. The heavy dose of latakia and aged Virginias makes it a satisfying smoke at the end of a long day. It may not be an everyday tobacco but there will be many evenings where only Nightcap will do the job!

This blend is absolutely perfect for late night/evening smokes as the name suggests. I have smoked quite a bit of the original Dunhill nightcap, and I can not tell a difference from this one. 10/10!

This was my first Hearth & Home tobacco. Eventually I will try a large sampling of their many offerings. This is a good smoke, but it was just a little milder than I was hoping for.

Blackhouse Review
I have really gotten attracted to Balkans. I just love that symphony of Latakia and Orientals. Currently, my go-to has been John Cotton’s Smyrna and I have played with some others such as White Horse and Larry’s Blend. So far, Smyrna is the winner. I decided to try Blackhouse. It’s good and smokeable but, I’m going with Smyrna.

Spot on re-issue, it's just like I remembered.
This was one of my staples, under the Dunhill name, along with Early Morning Pipe, My Mixture 965, Standard Mixture, and Elizabethan. I was seldom so pleased as when Peterson picked up the torch, and began releasing these blends under their own name. Peterson Nightcap is, IMO, spot on to the original, I can't detect any difference. This is one that I usually cellar for a year or two, so I purchased four tins (also four tins of EMP, 965, Standard Mixture and Elizabethan), one for now and three for later (and I plan on ordering even more for the celler). I opened the first tin, and was greeted with a very pleasant and familiar aroma, sweet, smoky and figgy, with a complex creamy leathery undertone. Moisture content was perfect for smoking right out of the tin (as all of the Dunhills were). It packed nicely, lit easily, and stayed lit very well. It got into the 'zone' quickly, and delivered a sweet, complex and smokey incense like smooth smoke, just like I remembered. The Perique content was very apparent, adding a peppery, dried fruit flavor to overall complexity of the smoke. The nicotine was on the high side of medium, just right for the last pipe of the day. My conclusion was that that 'They're Back'! I had the same conclusion with the other blends I mentioned. I'm very grateful to Peterson for bringing back our beloved Dunhill blends, if you (like me) enjoyed the Dunhill blends, you will not be disappointed with the Peterson re-issues. They even kept the cool Dunhill tin art, it's exactly the same except for the change in the name from Dunhill to Peterson.

I wanted to like it
This is the first full English I’ve tried, and all I’ve heard is how strong it is, and it’s overpowering it can be. Well I’ve been on my non aromatic journey for a little while now and wanted to the full flavor English experience. When the tin arrived in the mail i excitedly opened it up to find the tin note to be very strong. The taste however did not translate, surprisingly. I was expecting over the top campfire taste, what I tasted was bland tobbacco, possibly a little campfire but not what I was expecting. Maybe it’s me and I’m not a Latakia guy, I seem to get lots of flavors from Virginia’s, and VaPers. But not this blend sadly. I have it jarred and will come back for another bowl after some age, Which I have heard helps this blend. One thing I will say was it smoked great, extremely cool, maybe the coolest I’ve had. And no bad aftertaste.

Smells great
This smells just like the good old Dunhill Nightcap out of the can. I have jarred the new stuff and expect it will be just as good as the original when I smoke it next year.

As fine an English blend as I've ever had. It's a smokey, peppery, slightly sweet blend that I enjoyed from the first sip to the last. It has definitely earned it's spot in my rotation.

Perfect!
Probably my new favorite. I’m using this as a special smoke once per year on IPSD. Can’t wait to let the taste deepen as this one ages each year.

I Found Paradise!
While strolling thru a new tobacco shop for pipe cleaners and humidor stuff, I spotted a tin of Peterson's Nightcap and added it to my basket. I never pulled the trigger on Dunhill's version, so I bought it. I waited a few hours before loading it in a pipe, and I found Nirvana! It is ribbon-cut, so I packed it gently and tamped delicately, and it exceeded my wildest dreams. It smoked cool, and the full-flavored tobacco was loaded with complex tastes, all the way to the dottle. It relaxed me and made me feel totally at ease. And P&C's prices mean I'll order it again! It will be a standard part of my rotation.

A good, stout English blend perfect for Autumn/Winter and stormy weather
I really enjoy this tobacco when it's cold or raining out, it's a great Autumn/Winter nighttime smoke. I would say it's latakia forward, the flavor is fire smokey and savory, with a good earthiness to it. I just had a bowl about a half hour ago and it's a heavy rain, and the experience was very pleasurable. I've had this in a jar for 9-12 months now and it's better now than when i first opened it, the flavors married well and you get a good earthy spice from the DFK that compliments the smokey leather flavor of the latakia, very smooth and full. I didn't have to dry it, it packed perfectly, took the char and then the actual light with ease and burned down without any issues, I lightly relit once toward the end because I left it a lone a little too long, but other than that it's a great smoking tobacco. I can't smoke this as often as some other English blends because it's a bit heady which is why I gave it a 4 rather than a 5 star, but I do sincerely enjoy this and like to keep a fair amount on hand for when the mood for it is right and other tobaccos won't deliver what I'm looking for.

fooled you!
don't be fooled by a 3 star rating! this is a great english / balkan type blend. My only reason for the 3 star rate is simply because i enjoy some other blends of the same type a little bit more. it is certainly worth a try for those who enjoy english blends

Somewhere in your publicity I read something comparing this to Balkan Sobranie. Not so. I particularly miss the bright notes of yenidge (and Cypriot latakia really isn't a very good match for Syrian).

Great smoke, thank you Peterson for continuing this great blend.
One of my favorites, going back 30 years. If your palate is more suited to bolder flavors, espresso instead of Maxwell house, single malt scotch or Drambuie instead of flavored vodva, and IPAs instead of Coors light, this is for you. I enjoy all of these things but appreciate a stronger bolder, more natural taste. I've certainly smoked my share of aromatics, which are generally more appealing to the crowds, especially non smokers, but I gravitate towards the stronger more natural English blends for a more satisfying smoke.

Delightful Smoke
This blend has a delightful bouquet. Very unique. Mild and flavorful. Rich and earthy tin notes. One of my favorites!

Fantastic blend
Tried this initially my first week smoking a pipe and hated it. Several months later I decided to give it another shot and am so glad that I did. It has become one of my favorites. Now most evenings I put on some music and enjoy Nightcap along with a glass of port for a truly wonderful, relaxing evening.

More savory and smoking than sweet incense flavor in this English blend. The perique adds a fantastic complexity and depth. Needed a little time in the jar to get the flavors to develop.

Nightcap
I'm delighted that Peterson's has kept this blend alive. It's the greatest evening blend there is- dark, strong, slow burning, full flavored and rich. Grand way to close out the evening, wholly satisfying and absolutely flavorful with the exact perfection of a strong blend.

Perfectly balanced blend
Very good, subtle tobacco. Not too heavy on the Latakia if you're not a lat bomb fan. The Orientals really come through and give this tobacco a lot of body with deep and sour notes backed up by the smokey Latakia that make this a fantastic anytime of the day or night smoke. Worth stocking up on which is exactly what I'm going to do and wish they sold it in bulk!

Well done, but...
I am partial to Balkans; however, I do not care for perique. This is a great tobacco, but to my taste the perique is a bit too pronounced and the orientals too subdued. I found my perfect Balkan in Gurkha Retribution. After a couple weeks in the jar it has the buttery and vintage taste that I came to love in mac baren HH Balkan, except even moreso. It transports me to some oak paneled library full of old books. I smoke all types of tobaccos, but somehow when smoking a good Balkan I feel I am in the presence of an old friend. (Merely a manifestation of the olfactory senses being closely bound to the brain's lymbic system, but so what? That in no way detracts from the experience.) :{

Great for when you need some mellow Lat
I think this one would be a great first time try for someone wanting to try Latakia Blends. It has a mild flavor and strength of tobacco, with the right amount of latakia to give it a pleasant spicy note and aroma of incense. There is a lot of latakia present, but it's so well balanced with the rest of the blend that it is not overpowering.

Nice smoke for the ride home
This is a great tasting blend that I enjoy smoking on my way from work. Burns great and has no bite at all. It is a slow burning tobacco so I still have some left in my bowl when I do make it home. The latakia is very subtle but you can tell it is there. My palate isn't able to pick out all of he other tobaccos in it but I would recommend it and will be buying more.

Excellent blend
This tobacco has a complex flavor profile that morphs as you smoke it. The tin note is rich with a smokey, grassy, earthy tobacco smell. Moisture in this tin was perfect. At first lite, the virginas were up front with a nice sweet grassy taste. Within a minute or two the orientals came into play adding a light, slightly flowery taste and smell especially noticeable during the retro hale. As you get further into it, the perique comes into focus. The perique is well played in this blend and I did not find it peppery, instead I found it very tasty giving the smoke a nice rich earthy taste which led the way to the latakia. The Cavendish is apparent throughout as it keeps all the players in check. I do like latakia and I found the Cavendish kept the latakia in check a bit more than I wanted so I added a couple pinches of latakia to bring that smokey flavor up to my liking. I still give this 5 stars because of it's complexity and the excellent range of flavors. A very enjoyable smoke that remained well behaved, smooth, full and no bite right down to the bottom of the bowl.

Was not a big fan of Whitenight but love Blackhouse. Plan on getting a tin or two of Fusiliers Ration next. To me at least, Blackhouse was a lot cooler of a smoke than Whitenight and more flavorful. Highly recommend trying this one!

Dunhill Nightcap
Certainly a robust blend. Perfect for a Cigar Smoker trying out a pipe. Achieving and maintaining the appropriate moisture level can be a challenge. Of course, that is subject to taste. The aroma was good, flavor was straight up.

Great!!
Amazing tin note, robust and alluring. First half of the bowl was an intense combination of flavors. After a while you begin to grasp the complexity and pleasing flavor. Fantastic way to enjoy a nice evening. The "nic hit" isnt quite as strong as the legends suggest, but it is noticeable. Very enjoyable.

I am not a frequent pipe smoker, but when I do, I love some nightcap. This is very smooth and fragrant pipe tobacco. It is my current favorite. I am still awaiting the devestation that Dunhill closing down it pipe tobacco section will cause. No match mixes even come close. I will be truly upset as this is a great tobacco.

Not for an ignorant fledgling pipe smoker
This is actually a "re-review".... I wrote a review panning this tobacco on March 19. Since then I have watched a few YouTube vids on pipe smoking tips. I have since let it dry out a little and learned how to properly pack the bowl. I had been packing it too tight. What a difference! This really is nice stuff with many complex flavors and aromas. Now I'm happy! It pays to learn what you are doing.

dang
i'm fairly new to pipe smoking as i am a cigar smoker for almost 10 years and it's very different. that being said night cap to me is really heavy. it's an acquired taste probably for more "experienced" pipe smokers i've had heavy cigars which weren't my cup of tea but if you like tobacco that smells the musk of a sweaty clint eastwood in the good the bad and the ugly and a taste that'll kick you in the mouth like chuck norris than this is for you lol. i think over time i might enjoy this more.

My Favorite
Out of everything I've tried so far , this is my personal favorite. Such a complex flavor and room note. Unfortunately I can't do this as an all day smoke as my palate tends to get used to it and looses some of it's flavor so I have to keep rotating. But this is what I like to begin my week with and usually end with as well

Not for a fledgling pipe smoker
I don't have much experience smoking pipe, that being said, I was really disappointed with this stuff. My favorite so far is Mcclelland #12 which is now "unobtanium" so I received an order of 4 CAO blends, this one, and 2 Captain Blacks from P&C. I guess I prefer 'aromatic' type tobaccos like Captain Black original and CAO CherryBomb. This stuff tastes like smoking mud to my newbee palate.

New Smoker
Dunhill Nightcap was one of the first blends I tried as a new smoker. I purchased it because Dunhill blends (this one in particular) are very popular. It was alright, but a little too much tongue-bite for me. Personally, I prefer blends without Perique.
5 out of 5
One of my favorites...
Fine quality, and a great blend.

Very Nice, Balanced Blend!
I originally bought this blend because I had recently made my own blend (from the fine blending tobaccos offered here at P&C) and I wanted to try a blend that was similar in ingredients as mine to compare the two. Well I got my tin of "BlackHouse" and upon opening it noticed that it was quite dry but I was able to revive it and was soon able to try a bowl. Well this is certainly a good, well balanced blend. BlackHouse smokes very smoothly and yet delivers a nice amount of flavor with a solid medium / almost medium-fullness to it's strength. A decent but not over the top nicotine hit and a nice room note makes this a very satisfying blend that is well harmonized. I took a star off because of the dryness of the tobacco when I opened the tin and because of my own bias due to the fact that I think that my blend is actually better HE, HE but I would certainly recommend this blend to anyone. I think that BlackHouse is one of the better overall blends out there and is certainly one of the best Balkan style blends available.
5 out of 5
Incredible
Truly a delicious English blend. This blend is pretty much what every English blends attempts to mimic... I think I’ve figured out it’s flavor profile, imagine a normal English blend like John Bull, but with I very mild hint of Cigar Leaf. It says it doesn’t include cigar lead but it definitely has the room not of cigar leaf. This blend isn’t as strong in nicotine as it claims but the flavor is very full and satisfying.
5 out of 5
My favorite Dunhill blend so far
One of my favorite blends, it taste similar to Missouri Meerschaum American Patriot to me, but that may just be because of the latikia and the fact that i haven't tried many English blends yet
5 out of 5
A modern classic
Blackhouse is simply one of the greatest tobaccos ever blended by human hands. This tobacco is one of the greatest achievements of Russ Oulette. But, please don’t order it. I can’t buy enough given demand.

BlackHouse is my go to smoke..nice complex blend! Smooth smoke, gives me a hint of floral aroma in combination with a campfire feel...definitely leaves the palate with a nice semi-sweet marsh mellow campfire taste...great paired with coffee! A must have, in your rotation.

Interesting Experience
I am just getting back into pipe smoking. I got a range of tobacco a few weeks ago with this one. I was not a fan at first due to how harsh and strong I thought it was. Over time it has grown on me. It is offers a unique flavor that makes me think of pine trees. As strong as it is, it has smooth nature about it while having no trouble staying lit. It does have a very strong tobacco aroma that stays with you after you’re done. Maybe you don’t care about that, but some may be concerned about that. It seems like a solid tobacco, but just not personally for me. Maybe I’ll come back to it in a year or so and see if I’ve grown to like it more.

A New Friend
Since Presbyterian is out of the picture right now, I've been looking for a new friend. Been trying new English blends all summer and now on the advent of the long winter...I think I've found a new friend. Perique always "frightened" me as too much is like putting table pepper in your pipe. And though there are those who like that, it's not for me. But Night Cap's blend, including the Perique is what I call a great solution to the science and art of blending. To be fair...respect it and take your time. If you do, you won't be dashed. I'm glad we found each other. Thanks jat

Maybe my tastes aren't English
It's a great blend, but I finished my entire Hearth & Home Harvest before cracking the tin a second time. Maybe I'm just not English enough.
5 out of 5
Arguably the boldest and definitely one of the best!
Nightcap is the total big English blend. It is robust and satisfying and it is not selling any top note. It is a touch sweet, nice and smoky, and has a depth all its own. You'll want to savor the flavor in your quiet place, hence it actually is a good pre-bedtime option. Stock up while you still can!

Very smokey taste with some pepper and hints of floral tones when blown through ones nose. I like it from both freshly opened tin, to aged and mellowed. And the tin note is that of a campfire on a soggy night. I'm doing all I can to stock up before it gone. You should too.

Best of the Best
This tobacco is the most satisfying that I have enjoyed in the 50 years that I have enjoyed pipe smoking. BlackHouse has become my "Go To" tobacco at any time of the day.

Unexpectedly mild English blend
Unexpectedly mild for a blend advertised as bold and robust. Came packed into a moist cake. Strong smoky Latakia note in the tin. Smoked in a clean Dr. Grabow Lark Full Bent - my favorite evening pipe - with a fresh filter. Mild smoking but with full taste of toasty Virginia and smoky Latakia. Not a hint of bite. The Perique dominates the room note. Deserves it's name. A perfect evening smoke. Stocking up.
5 out of 5
Strong as Noted
Very strong flavor, peppery perique, full body smoke, stayed lit right out of the tin. I let it dry for a couple weeks now I'm storing it in a jar to see why others recommend doing that way.

Dunhill's Nightcap
Nightcap is a pleasant and decidedly English blend. Latakia and a touch of Perique are balanced with Virginias to create one of Dunhill's very best blends. Nightcap is a great departure from my regular pipe tobacco; Lane's 1-Q
5 out of 5
Balanced blend
This is a very nice blend for the evening. Tin aroma is fragrant with latakia and the sweetness of some virginia. Enough body without being heavy. Burns well with few relights. Not nicotine heavy but noticeable nonetheless. Will certainly keep it in my rotation.

Wonky pack, poor burn due to cut.
Good flavor, somewhat reminiscent of Nightcap. Came a bit dry in the can, so I transferred it to a jar with a humidifier. Two stars because of the cut. Nice thin strings of Virginia with thick beams of darker tobacco that make it difficult to pack and even more difficult to keep lit. I won't be buying any more of this.

This is one of the tins I've always wanted. Smokes well and has a nice, smooth taste. Smells similar to Peterson's Old Dublin, but smokes and tastes different.

Tasty, but a little too much pepper.
I bought this to try up against Blue Mountain. I have to say, while this is a good blend, to my taste the Blue Mountain is king. There is too much perique here for me. Still, this is a solid blend with a nice smokiness and richness. One cannot go wrong with this or the Fusilier's Ration, which I also really enjoy.

This much Latakia = Too much for me
Well, this is the first English blend/Latakia heavy tobacco I've ever tried. I definitely am not used to the Latakia aroma (some might say stench), and it's taken me a long time to come around to this tobacco. The first time I ever tried it, I didn't mind the act of smoking it as much as the aroma, but I didn't enjoy my time with it. After 6 months of the tobacco mellowing out in the tin, the aroma isn't as harsh, and smoking the tobacco has become pleasant. Definitely not my favorite, but I'm learning to like it.

Nightcap dreams....
My go to blend....I've bought this many times and just got a tin in the mail. I couldn't wait to open the tin to smell the earthy campfire note explode from the can. Reminiscing about previous encounters with my old friend I load a bowl right off the bat. Almost ignoring the other selections in my order box. That first puff rolls through like a dream. Each better than the last I know my next several days will be awesome with this blend in stock. I'm now enjoying a lasting finish that goes fine with my morning coffee. I will hate to see you go nightcap. You're the bomb!!

Close but no cigar.
This is one of that tobaccos that was recommended as a replacement for Balkan Sobranie. It was a nice mellow smoke but didn't match my memories of the Balkan Sobranie I remember from the '70s.

The ribbons are better but still dry, A+
As with any tabac with mixed reviews I was hesitant at first. I would agree the smoke gets stronger and more complexed as You near the 2/3 mark. The aroma from tin rivals nightcap and has more sophisticated palate in mind but most definitely dry from tin. In my everyday rotation!!!

I am too dumb to know how truly good this is.
As a new pipe smoker, it is hard to distinguish the complex flavors I hear so much that come from Dunhill's Nightcap. I picked up my first pipe not too long ago and unknowingly bought what to me was an unpleasant Lane BCA. Not to badmouth BCA, I have since learned to enjoy it, but I would much rather smoke Nightcap. Without my sense of taste to put to words how good this tobacco is, you'll just have to take my word that it is well worth it. Highly recommended, even for a "new-to-tobacco" pipe smoker, do not be scared by the reputation this blend holds. Go easy, and enjoy... I'm sure you will.
5 out of 5
Different than it used to be, but still good.
I had a tin of this about 5 years ago and it blew me away. I had only been a pipe smoker for a couple years, and it was exactly how I thought a tobacco should taste. It was nice and rich and mellow, with a reasonable kick to it. I got a new tin in this very afternoon and it just seems a lot different from the one I smoked a few years ago. The smell is a lot more tangy and Virginia-y, and a bit less of that intense Latakia "Tobacco" smell, and that carries over to the smoking. The color seems a fair bit lighter than the old tin as well. The nicotine kick is a bit stronger too, and would have made my head spin if I was still a newbie. It's still a superb tobacco worthy of five stars, but if you fell in love with the older nightcap and want to revisit it, just be warned that it's just a little bit different.

good flavor
it is a good smoke but may be a bit strong for some especially if you are used to aromatics.
5 out of 5
My personal favorite
Nightcap from Dunhill is my favorite blend, I end every evening with a wonderful pipe full of this tobacco. This blend changes as you smoke it, latakia comes through on one puff while perique or orientals come through on rhe next. The balance is very nice, it is a rich and powerful tobacco blend and one I would never run out of.
5 out of 5
My New Favorite!
Blackhouse has quickly become my new favorite tobacco. Its a smooth yet full-bodied tobacco with an amazing taste. When you open the tin the first thing you will notice is that the smell of the tobacco is quite strong, essentially it smells like a smokey barbecue sauce. The tobacco was at the perfect moisture content when I got the tin so I didn't have to spend any time drying it out. The taste is nutty with a sweet chocolately hint, its also somewhat spicey (which I believe comes from the dark fired kentuckies), while the orientals also impart a subtle taste of pepper. Its incredibly balanced and will give you no tongue bite at all, no matter how many bowls you smoke. This is far away the best tobacco Ive EVER had.
5 out of 5
Light but flavorful
I like smoking English blends for their flavor and aroma but many are just too heavy for evening. Nightcap has the flavor I want but is still light enough that I can enjoy before bedtime.

Famous name average smoke
I am amused at how do many people parrot each other on this blend. Folks come on this blend is average at very best. Really some of you folks need to venture out more. I enjoy this blend however it seems to try to please everyone, which I notice seems to be the motivation of Dunhill brands. This blend is a general kind of smoke that does not shine in room note,flavor or flavor taste. Sure it is a nice smoke but way too bland to stand out in any catagory. The Latakia is almost nonexistent so no real smoky flavor. I tend to think some folks think because it says Dunhill....well gosh it must be the best. Open up your horizons and try other brands even small little know brands which may truly surprise you!

Decent smoke
Very interesting blend. Room note is not a lot to brag about. At light up I get a pretty good hit of pepper. After a few puffs you get that familiar smoky barbecue flavor and every once in a while I actually got a hint of marshmallows. As you get to the bottom of the bowl it gets very peppery. It is a more than decent smoke but one I will go to sparingly. My search continues for the woods smoke flavor I have been searching for forever.

Dunhill nightcap gets full 5 star brandings!!!
This dunhill is a remarkably gwntle but full bodied medallic winning english but out of the past 1675-1800‘s that focuses on the sembarisms of what the body needs throughout the month all the way to.each day,..after day,....aiding and quinlling to all of its other tobaccoas in its needs and mwlding a coeficienc that equals a bottled.100% perfectual nature im a bottle,...while providing a good smokey and tastey.english at the same time,...a perfect late day remedy for any.after dinner relaxation needs,...where a total rewrite.and oscilation of concernse are in need...for that untempermental worry free night time smoke!! I‘ll always come back to P&C to buy it...very recommended for new smokers too!!

I'll Have a (Dunhill) Nightcap Please!
I received a 1.76oz tin of Nightcap in the King of the Dunhill Sampler (which I highly recommend). Nightcap has a really nice, rich flavor and smokes very smooth. The room note is quite nice as well. I usually start off (or end) the evening with a few bowls that are on the Latakia side of things then I always end with a bowl of Nightcap. You can't go wrong with any Dunhill tobacco. Good stuff.

Thank goodness for the English. They have a tobacco for every part of the day. Nite Cap is perfect for the end of day! Full bodied and flavorful. Stays lite and gives a good long smoke. Not for beginners but ideal for seasoned smokers.

A great blend to relax with
I love this blend and smoke it nightly. Its full flavored, smokey, has some good spice and a very slight sweetness to it. Plenty of vitamin N but not over the top like I have heard but I have a higher tolerance than some. It puts me in a relaxed state of mind by the end of each bowl and never gets old. Smokes very well. You can bring out or calm some of the flavors by changing your smoking pace.

Black House not built for me.
Looking at all the reviews I was sure I would like this tobacco. I was very wrong. The tobacco was a mix of brown, black, yellow, and green ribbons. The moisture level out of a freshly unsealed tin was almost crunchy dry. The aroma was smoke...nothing else. The nicotine level is very weak almost non existent. What smoke there was had no full mouth feel, like puffing air. I have jarred the rest of the tin. Will buy one more tin in the hope that I simply received a bad batch. Every H&H tobacco I have tried has been on the weak side but were usually tasty or at least interesting. This one is neither.

I'll always keep some on hand
I took the plunge into Latakia's early and not very gradually. I'm not a fan of most aromatics and stick mainly to English blends. Nightcap is among my favorites. It's bold and full of flavor. A very relaxing smoke. I like to dry it out a bit (about an hour on a sheet of paper) because straight out of the tin it's a bit gooey. I will always have some on hand.

Definitely a keeper
Nice rich English blend. This was part of my first journey into the world of more full English tobaccos along with Tsuge's Ryujin (I was a big fan of Ashton's Artisan blend and Dunhill's London for a while prior but wanted a bit more heft). This blend is very rich, with a mostly smokey, slightly spicey, with a faint hint of earth balance but even as I am just adjusting to heavier blends, this was very pleasant. I think the Ryujin seemed to be a small amount smoother with more spice/earth flavors to it, but this blend has also been a treat to have around.

Never fails.
Has to be the 4th tin of Nightcap I've enjoyed. It is, my favorite mix to enjoy in the late ours of night. Burns nice, fills the room with a lovely note. I even enjoy it when friends smoke it. I actually put a tin of it on my Christmas list! Wife asks: What do you want for Christmas? I said... Find tobacco, another tin of Nightcap!

I fell in love with it.
First opened up this tin and wasn't sure how it would compare to H and H 10 to midnight, which I fell in love with. At first, this one disappointed and I set it aside assuming I would give it more time. The more I thought about it I decided maybe it wasn't the fault of the tobacco but of the user. I had put it in the same pipe I smoked 10 to midnight and last Sunday decided to pull out the very first pipe I ever made (I carve pipes at AmericanHeritagePipe on Etsy), and without residue of previous use, filled it with Blackhouse and sat back with an opened mind. Wow. One of the most enjoyable hours I ever spend on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Start to finish it was outstanding. Great taste, room note (kept hoping the breeze would blow the smoke back towards me) absolutely no tongue bite and burned cleanly down to a white ash. Took 3 lights to get going, but again, probably my failure to pack it well. Once it got going, I didn't have to work at keeping it lit. I was very disappointed when it ran out, but took solace that I had purchase 2 tins so I'd have this around for a while. It will absolutely stay in my cellar for those days I want to reminisce about campfires, hiking in cool weather and the solitude the great Northwest offers. Best for those cool evenings in the fall when the sun is down and dusk is winning the fight. Reminds one of the great American Frontier generations back. This tobacco will fast become a welcomed friend to anyone who tries it.

Dunhill Nightcap
Funny name for such a strong mixture. Every time I have a "last bowl" of it I end up following up with a bowl of 965. Nightcap will always be on rotation.

If you are willing to wait?
Totally underwhelmed when I first purchased. Put it back and stumbled across it about a year later. After a little age... fantastic! I have some cigars that share this characteristic so I now order far ahead, put it back and reap the rewards of patience.

Dunhill Nightcap: Pleasant, bold, and a fantastic smoke to cap off the day with.
When first opening the tin you're greeted with what is by FAR the strongest smelling English Blend your nose is ever going to come across. A bold leather scent takes the foreground while hints of hearty camp fire lie calmly, but not unnoticed, in the background. Whilst packing the pipe the first thing you'll notice is the remarkable dryness of the tobacco in this blend. It feels almost like cut and dried grass to give you an idea of the consistency. This is very far from a moist tobacco. I'm not sure if this is because it's a bold English blend or what, but these tobaccos are cured In an entirely different manner than any other pipe tobacco blend I have ever tried. Once I'd had the pipe all loaded it was time to spark it up. After I'd got the char light in and proceeded with the official light it was time to put my night cap on and get this pipe rolling . To much surprise, the first 1/3 of the bowl was not NEARLY as strong as I'd thought it was going to be. What I'd gathered from the numerous reviews I had sought out and read about this oh so popular English blend was that it is bolder than anything you'd ever experienced or could ever experience in your lifetime. However, that was not the case. You're initially greeted with a very, very nutty and almost woodsy flavor. You almost have to actively seek out the typical English blend flavors to really taste them. On the other hand, the 2nd third of the bowl was an almost entirely different experience all together. The Latakia really pulled through in this portion of the bowl. Everything you love in a good English blend was pleasantly bold in the 2/3. The woodsy , leathery, strong tobacco taste that English blends are known for is on the front lines now, and it's showing no signs of letting up. In the last 3rd of the bowl the flavor was almost exclusively a nice, rich tobacco taste mixed with a little bit of campfire undertones. A fantastic note to end on I would say. Dunhill Nightcap is a very pleasant smoke IMO.

Nice and Strong But Didn't Like the Flavor
I know I'm in the minority here, but I didn't like it. It wasn't the strength (I in fact love strong tobacco), but it was the flavor that was rather off-putting. Simply not a fan of the nightcap.

Dunhill Tins....
Just purchased Dunhill nightcap & Early morning pipe. Needless to say these are tobaccos for the experienced pipe smoker. Nightcap has a little bite to it. But very refreshing smoke. Early morning is great no bite & yes I have it early in the morning as per the directions lol. Would. It again as well behave in the past.

Was not my favorite
This was not a bad tobacco, It just did not do it for me. I think I'll avoid this one in the future.
3 out of 5
Not my nightcap
So, I will admit I bought this one for the label and name. Great marketing. However, not to bash Dunhill, I found this tin to be rather disappointing. Not that I can put my finger on why, it just seemed to NOT be what I would consider my "end of day" tobacco to be. What is my "end of day" tobacco? Lane's brands, Tsuge's (autumn and summer batches), Penzance, and I just discovered Cult, which was a pleasant surprise. Another brand I bought because of the name and reviews. I see this is getting rave reviews, so I may just be an outlier.

Great English Blend!
Love this Stuff!! If you like bold English tobacco with a Kick of Nicotine this is your brand. Burns very evenly to the bottom of the bowl.

Try all the Marquee Blends and you wont be disappointed.
Russ is a true artist. This is another amazing English, I prefer White Knight but I will keep a tin of this around when I want something a little different. If you haven't tried this and the other Marquee Blends order them!

Consistantly rich,smooth and relaxing
Like all of Dunhill's tobaccos, Nightcap has a depth and complexity of flavors that is truly relaxing. It is the perfect end of the day long slow smoke. I smoke other Dunhill tobacco during the day but Nightcap is the one I always end with. It never disappoints!
5 out of 5
Perfect English blend!
A lot has been said about nightcap,but why talk just enjoy it.I like this better than Royal yacht, nicotine is present but not overpowering which makes this a perfect English blend.Buy it,enjoy it,save the tin and repeat.

When you open a fresh tin of Dunhill Nightcap, you know just what you're in for. That delicious English aroma presents itself, not only to your sense of smell, but to your tastebuds. Dark and heavy. Scrumptious!

Strong & Bold
Nightcap is by far the best English that I have had so far, It's bold and full of flavor. I didn't have a problem with the nicotine content, but be careful if you have little experience with nicotine as you may feel sick. Overall great smoke, burned well and room note was strong, but extremely pleasant.

Hey. This is really good tobacco
I just took up pipe smoking again, but this time with intrigue and great interest this past winter. And, of course, I read a lot, and read a lot of reviews on tobaccos. So, along with aromatics, which I already knew I liked, I got a tin of Nightcap because the tobacco was highly acclaimed. The first pipe full (which I can't remember if I finished or not) gave me horrible indigestion in the middle of the night. So, I didn't touch that tin again until maybe a couple weeks. Wow. All of a sudden it went from hate to love. What happened I don't know, but immediately upon light up the 2nd try my eyes grew wide and my immediate thought was "Hey. This is really good tobacco."
5 out of 5
Truly An Award-Winning Blend!
From the first whiff as I opened the tin I was excited and anxious to fire it up! Excellent Latakia-based blend! Well-done Russ!

I't just okay...
Blackhouse may be a bit more complex than Dunhill's Nightcap, but it's just too mild for me. I will stick with Dunhill Nightcap....

Wow, I see what the hype is about. Dunhill 965 is my normal everyday smoke. Black house is a bit more complex and well balanced, and the sweet and smoky flavors stand out individually and complement each other wonderfully.

Whoa!
I have to give this all-time classic at least four stars, even though it proved to be too much for this guy! I smoked a large bowl of the "real thing" after having some knock offs of this Dunhill standby and...wow...was that an intense smoke. The room note was overpowering (my mom complained from the other end of the house...and that's a long way), and the taste was/is not for the faint of heart! I thought that I was almost a "veteran" pipe smoker. Now I know better. If you like a REALLY full-bodied, unforgiving English style blend, with just a hint of the aromatic to it, give this one a try. It's an old favorite for a reason, please don't get me wrong. There are pipe aficionados out there who will love this, as you can see from the reviews. I won't be buying anymore because I'm too much of a wimp! Don't let my experience stop you! Smoke 'em if you got 'em gents! :)

Better than the magnum opus but still not enjoying the peppery perique. I like to smoke with a burning and enjoy a cavendish, Kentucky and Virginia.

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!

Well done Russ!
This is what every Latakia blend I have every smoked I hoped would taste like. Campfire smoke, a light incense like flavour, very full mouthfeel of the smoke and a nice sweetness. Even the room note it left on the porch was nice. Most English smokes are just too smokey in the room for me, but this was great. I have no clue if this is a true clone recipe of BS 759 and I don't care. I believe this will be my go to Latakia blend from here on out. More tins for the cellar! Russ's blends are, without a doubt, some of the best blends available to pipe smokers today.

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.

Tin note is of smokey cypress. The moisture was perfect and ready to smoke. Packs well, lights well, burns well. Smooth flavor, with no drama, every bowl and every light. Room note is pungent.

Calling Latakia Lovers
This is a Latakia forward blend, reminding me a bit of C&D De Vinci (another heavy Latakia. Black House is full body, but I would not suggest it to be strong, perhaps more a medium robust smoke. The smoky flavor is found from the top to the bottom of the bowl. No Tongue bite, easy to pack, light, and kept lit with minimal effort.

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
3 out of 5
Very nice. Great cut and perfectly prepared for tinning.
Only one bowl fresh out of the tin so far. Beautiful aroma pre-light; campfire, bit of leather, cognac, sweet almost maple-like note and the twang of orientals. Found it burned faster than White Knight and definitely had more of a latakia heaviness. Quite a bit more nicotine punch than I was expecting (again with comparison to White Knight). Burned evenly down to the bottom, getting a little hotter as it progressed but not too bad. Reminds me a bit of McLelland Club Samovar fresh out of the tin (as Samovar is quiet moist unlike BH and as it mellows the orientals harmonize, the latakia gets creamy and the Virginia quiets down - very different than BH out of the tin). I'm very curious to see what BH is like after a 3-6 months of cellaring; Samovar didn't really do much for me until about 9 months, although the quality of the imputs, and the cut both seem to be higher with BH. Overall very enjoyable smoke, although I think I am too much of a lightweight; I prefer the medium english blend of White Knight (then again, that might change in 6 months). Looking forward to finding out.

My New Best Friend
I am definitely a newbie here when it comes to pipe smoking but I have to say I LOVE this one. The Hearth and Home Blends are so far my favorite--I am a big fan of the Magnum Opus, and alternate between that and the Blackhouse. But the Blackhouse has become my new best friend! It smokes smooth and robust and has an incredible flavor. I am halfway through my second tin and about to order several more. I have only been pipe smoking for less than a month now but find I can smoke 4-5 bowls a day and totally enjoy each and every smoke. I cant get enough of it!

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.

Smooth, Complex, Lovely!
2 years into this hobby, er, uh, addiction (let's be honest)... I still really love aros and after trying 40-50 tobaccos (did I mention I am a bit compulsive?), mostly aros, I got it in my head that I might enjoy a very MILD "English" so scanned a smattering of reviews here and elsewhere and ordered a bunch of them to try. I have two tupperware tubs. "Keep" and "Donate". Most of my recent purchases went straight into Donate but THIS ONE??? KEEP!!! I wouldn't call this a "beginner's tobacco" as it is very complex and things like Latakia can scare tyros away (it did me for the longest time, turns out I had no aversion to Lat just didn't like nasty ones). BUT... this is smooth and rich at the same time, very enjoyable and PERFECT for fall/winter.

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.
5 out of 5
Genius
Hands down the best blend I have ever smoked. This coming from a primarily VA & Vaper guy. I will never figure out how Russ can take so many fine component tobaccos and make them work so seamlessly together as a whole. This blend defies categorization imo - to label it simply an English or balkan seems to detract from its personality entire. Superb smoking characteristics, both smooth and strong with not even a hint of bite. Simply put, with 34 tobaccos in my regular rotation, I find them now accumulating dust. My only complaint would be lack of availability in bulk. Well done, sir, very well done.

Favorite English Blend
I ordered this one because I desired a full English blend, and that is exactly what I got! It has a very strong smokiness, and full room note and taste. The tin moisture is perfect for smoking, but not too dry. I need to order more of this, because it will be one of my standard rotation tobaccos from now on.

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.

Relaxation in a Tin
This is a great Balkan tobacco that delivers all the flavor and none of the bite. It has a very smooth and even burn, and my wife likes the room note. I love it with brandy after a great meal.

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.
2 out of 5
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.

Surpassed all expectations
Great tobacco. Honestly, I had read the comments and was expecting something good, but Black House surpassed all expectations. As good as the Latakia is in this, the Virginias are the star of the show. Great balance as well. This is as good as anything else out there.
