Dunhill BB1938


Dunhill BB1938 is the resurrection of a blend that was originally only sold in their retail locations. The current name is not the one it was originally known by. The name came from the phrase "As smooth as a..."

This is a smooth and mellow Latakia blend made of matured red and sweet golden Virginias with a modicum of Cyprian Latakia. The flavor is lightly sweet and smoky and is gentle enough to be an ideal all-day blend. For Latakia-lovers, this is a great tobacco for earlier in the day when you don't want anything too heavy, and for Virginia fans who occasionally like a little taste of Latakia, BB1938 will hit the spot. Welcome back a classic.

Smokes great.
Very nice tobacco. A bit mellower than My Mixture but stronger than London Mixture. A perfect smoke.

BB1938
This one has been an Old Fave for years. It's dependable, stays lit, offers excellent full flavor and is a GRAND smoke any time of day.

BB1938 Lives Up To It's Name
It is indeed, smooth as a baby's bottom. It has become my favorite Dunhill.

Just So-so
So-so compared to other Dunhill and/or other English blends I've had. Not bad but doubt I'll reorder and will stick with my other Dunhills or Frog Morton blends.

It's. smooth
Not bad. Not great. I like 965 better. It is quality Dunhill but it lacks zip. Will finish the tin but it will not be in my rotation

A New Favorite
My favorite Dunhills are Standard and 965. EMP is good, but a bit lacking in my opinion. Then I tried BB1938 and was deeply impressed. It is a mild English like EMP, but with a smooth balance that is delightful. It has replaced EMP for me as a light English blend.

Good English Blend
Tasteful and good room aroma. Latakia is present and I think up front. Not sure it reminds me of the old Baby's Bottom but that was a long time ago.

Excellent As Usual
I really enjoyed this blend. I have only been smoking a pipe for about 5 months now and still have not tried a Dunhill blend that I did not like. This could easily be a all day blend.

I like this better than 965 and found it to be very enjoyable. Will order this tobacco again.

BB1938: Early Morning Pipe for Your Afternoon and Evening.
If you enjoy Dunhill's EMP, this is perfect for you. A bit richer, a bit fuller, it's the perfect daily companion. Smooth as a baby's bottom was the old slogan, when this was known as Baby's Bottom. I find it to be a delightful blend!

Dunhill BB 1938 is a winner!
I have become a fan of this tobacco after only a few tins. It has just the right amount of Latakia for me. I enjoy switching from my favorite to it from time to time. It does seem to burn rather quickly however.

It's just like I remember it
I used to smoke BB back in the day. I am pleased it's back. As a heavy English tobacco smoker, this is a pleasant lighter English type to change off to when the mood hits. Glad it's back.

A great new Dunhill offering
I regularly get monthly installments of bulk Dunhill Early Morning Pipe. Last month, based on the summary on the webpage, I ordered a tin of BB1938. It was great! It is an easy smoker like EMP. Is there any chance that BB1938 will be offered as bulk tobacco? I really like both tobaccos: smooth, cool smoking, no after-taste. It would be wonderful to be able to alternate between the two at bulk pricing.

About BB1938
I smoke Philosopher, Frog Morton. Williamsburg … and so on. BB1938 fits OK with these, but nothing special. Probably won’t replace it once the tin is finished.

At first…not so much, but it grows on you. Still hunting for that old original Toost.

I liked BB1938's Virginias and the mild smoothness. The Latakia is not noticeable.

Good, Not my top but I enjoy it.
So you can gage better- I really like OGS, MacBook Plum Cake (Navy blend),Q1, and vintage Syrian for that occasional mix.

While great quality I would not purchase again.
While I am not displeased for the cost and quality I just absolutely did not enjoy the taste and especially the tinge and after taste it has. At times it was like puffing on a bar of soap.

Dunhill BB1938
I enjoyed the flavor and strength of BB1938. It is not overpowering and has just the right amount of Latakia in it to satisfy. If you take your time sipping you won't get a Nicotine rush with it either. I recommend trying it if you are an English lover.
