Flying Dutchman
Good stuff. Burn this all day!

Very, very, close!
Way to go P&C. Though I don't think this is a perfect match, it's as close as you are going to get with today's tobaccos. I used to use Flying Dutchman as rolling tobacco when I wanted a break from my red & white boxed factory made's. Some professors allowed smoking in the class room back then, and loved the aroma(as did class mates). I started smoking a pipe later in life after I gave up cigarettes, and have been looking for a good match for a long time. I have come close a few times with my own blends, but have fallen short. Thanks. Will order more.

My new favorite!
Reminds me of the original, very smooth, not at all harsh in my vintage "THE PIPE" and reminds me of the 70's!

FLYING DUTCHMAN BLEND
This is an all day blend that is pleasantly mild on the tongue with no bite and mild flavor. At first, the tobacco seemed much dryer than most aromatics, but easily packs and is as mild as any I’ve smoked.

Flying Dutchman Match
Flying Dutchman Match, it is close to the original but lacks the full flavor and the aroma of the original Flying Dutchman. I suspect it is very hard to make a match with what is available today for the blenders. I started out in 65 smoking the original. My father always smoked it and I can remember my mother always set close to him when he did. The aroma was wonderful. He had mastered Flying Dutchman and taught me how to smoke it with out the burn. I still have six ounce of the original Flying Dutchman in a jar that I use on special occasions. My wife loves the aroma of it, and states the matches that I have tried, do not measure up to the original. I have heard that CCC makes a match that is very close, I have yet to try it because they can not ship to the state I live in. Will work on that.

Aye The Flight o the Dutchman
Aye, I waited to place this review until I smoked a large nuff sample, so aft an ounce consumed here we go... The Flying Dutchman was one of the first tinned tobacco’s I smoked in the 70’s. Upon opening the bag, I bought 4oz, the aroma was wonderful. It has a light, sweet smell to it. The cut follows the original in the ribbons and cube. One main difference is the colour. The main memory I have is that the original held a lighter colour, not having any experience back in the ‘70’s. Now in thinking it may have had more oriental back then. Today’s blend looks like it has some black Cavendish instead. On first light the plumes of smoke were thick and tasty. It’s mild, with an even flavor all the way though to just over the bottom. The smoke gets a little wet about the half way mark. Just keep a pipe cleaner hand to keep dry. For a comparison to the original I’d have to say it stands alone. They are different and the same. Forty plus years is a long time to attempt a comparison between tobaccos. This is good enough on its own merits to be an enjoyable all day smoke. Buy it and see if you would agree.

a good tobacco - much better than the original
I smoked a pipe in the 60s and loved the taste of this tobacco but couldn't smoke it because it scorched my mouth. This match blend is very good - not quite triumphant but good quality. The pouch note is almost herbal, slightly vanilla. The flavor is distinctly Danish mild aromatic. No nic-hit worth mentioning. I like mild tobaccos and don't like nicotine so this one works for me.

Lite sipper
Tried out two ounces of this. Never had the original so no idea how it compares. Found this to be a lite and wispy smoke. Seemed to respond best sipped in a cob. Not bad. Has some teeth if pushed. Mild vanilla like taste. Holds its flavor throughout the bowl. Reminded a bit of captain black lite but with a bit more substance.

Mild, smooth smoke, but not
Mild, smooth smoke, but not enough character to be stand-alone; great mixture with more expensive blends.

My new favorite
Really a lovely mellow smoke. Better in all ways than the original I remember fondly from the 1960s. This is not as fine a ribbon cut as the original, but burns better and just as satisfying.

Not A Dead Ringer But Quite Nice!
Well my memory of Flying Dutchman is 30 years old, so take this with a small grain of salt but I think it was cut differently, unlike another reviewer's memory of Flying Dutchman I remember it being a thinner ribbon cut or even a "shag" cut whereas the MATCH FD is somewhat more coarse and I don't it's think is a dead ringer for the flavor either. With that said however, this is a very nice aromatic that isn't too heavily cased and still tastes like tobacco. I've pretty much been smoking English/Balkan non aromatic blends for quite a while now and I can't really enjoy most of the goopy, heavy aromatics on the market today, this however is a pretty good one and I'll probably re-order this blend to serve as a change of pace from my usual English/Balkan blends.

Almost made it
The cut and top note flavor did not match that of what little I have of my remaining original blend. I was a bit disappointed. On its own, it is a pleasant smoke.

Not bad
Pretty solid tobacco. Starts off simple but then gets more complex as you smoke it. I could see it as an all day smoke for some, but is missing a little something to keep me interested. Probably won't be buying again.

I haven't smoked Flying Dutchman
I haven't smoked Flying Dutchman in decades. The match, to me, did not come close to the original. Not a bad smoke but not like Flying Dutchman.

The Dutchman flies again !!!
I can't tell you how many years ago I smoked Flying Dutchman. I do know that I've been away from pipe smoking for 15 years or more. I first became acquainted with Flying Dutchman back around 1966 when I first started smoking a pipe. I've always like this OTC pipe blend and thanks to you fine people it is here again in true flying colors. This blend is smooth, mild, enjoyable with no bite whatever. I do believe it is cut somewhat finer than the original was and this may even add to its wonderful characteristics. I ordered 6 different tobaccos in one shipment and Dutchman was one and believe it or not Dutchman was the very first I tried. You can bet this old man will be getting more of this wonderful match !!!

Dutchman Flying Again
It has been so many years since I was able to buy the original Dutchman that I can't say for sure that this an exact match. However, it does jog my memory as being very close and seems to have both the flavor and aroma of the original pretty well covered. I smoked a lot of Dutchman at the time and used it as a break-in and caking tobacco for new pipes because of its subtle sweet flavor and excellent caking properties. One advantage of this tobacco is that it has none of the original's bite. Dutchman would get extremely hot and bite if it wasn't smoked very slowly thanks to its very fine cut.This is becoming one of my regular rotation tobaccos and I'm enjoying both the tobacco and the memories that it has reminded me of. Now that I've found it, I hope it stays available.

One of my old time favorites that I was sad to see disappear from the shelves. Hats Off to the 'match' team...this blend is as how I remember the original from years ago.

Return of Dutchman
I wasn't old enough when the original flying Dutchman was out, but always wanted to try it. This tobacco burns nice, and has a great taste and roomnote. I will have this in my rotation now on.

Match Flying Dutchman
I received my tobacco and just as you promised it is a replica of the original I used 40 years ago. The service was excellent just as the product. I will be shopping with you again.

Very pleasant, very lightly topped (cocoa chocolate?) aromatic. Pretty much a dead ringer for Prince Albert or Sir Walter Raleigh, but better. Never smoked the original.

Good stuff
I have no idea what the original tobacco was like but I can say that this is one terrific and satisfying smoke. It stays lit, the flavor remains pleasant and consistent. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Match Flying Dutchman review
The tobacco was bland. Not what I expected. However, it has been many years since I last smoked FD. I will not be purchasing it again.

Challenge.
Dear Russ, I dare you to truly make this blend. As advertised it's 18 different types of tobacco blended together. You are a God compared to me but this is a true challenge. It's the table scraps of one company but yearly acceptable.

The Flying Dutchman still sails
I was lucky enough to try some real Flying Dutchman some years ago and really liked it; then found out it was no longer available, which was a bummer. I found this match and it's pretty darn good. I enjoy it.

Flying Dutchman Replica
I was pleasantly surprised and enjoy the product. Not hot, burns long and smooth, no bite and nice aroma. Similar to the original. I would add a touch more vanilla. I'll buy more.

The Dutchman's Back!
Flying Dutchman was one of my favorite mild, aromatic blends years back. When I came back to pipe smoking several years ago, I was sorry to find that it was no longer available although there are several "matches" available online. The P&G version is a very close match, and a wonderful blend in and of itself. I like to smoke a bowl at the end of my work day. I find it a powerful comfort that helps me think.

Match Flying Dutchman
I ordered two different 15 ounce shipments, and they tasted totally different. The first shipment was the best, by comparison to the second shipment---which was very bland, tasteless and lacked the aroma of the first shipment. Then I found out through Customer Service that you "purchase" this tobacco already blended from another vendor, and don't actually blend it "in-house". If you did, you would have better quality control and probably much better consistency of the blend, by your Master Blender.

My favorite smoke
When I first tried the Flying Dutchman Match, I thought it wasn't quite as I remembered Flying Dutchman. But, after smoking it a few times it became my favorite smoke. My wife loves the aroma in the house too!

Not the Same
Not anything like I remember it, but it may be due to 40+ years between "Flying Dutchman" smokes!

Not exactly a match. The taste is close and aroma about the same. Overall a great tobacco for the price !

Having never tried the original
Having never tried the original Flying Dutchman, I don't know how this compares. I will say however that this match was a relaxing smoke, stayed lit, and burned somewhat cool as long as I paced myself.

It has been decades since i smoked the original. This seemed close to the previous version. I liked it.
Customer Testimonials
Like many other pipe smokers, I had a love affair with Flying Dutchman back in the day, so I was looking forward to trying the Match version. Unfortunately, other than the quick and light smoke, there was nothing in this blend that reminded me of the good old stuff. The lack of the famous Flying Dutchman aroma was the biggest disappointment. The good old stuff used to linger on the moustache for hours!
I love this tobacco. Tastes great and burns well. I have ordered this twice now and will certainly order again.
I am really tired of the bad rep that FD has been getting. FD has been around for a LONG time and is still sought out so maybe you should reevaluate your opinion. FD is a very thin ribbon cut blend that packs easily, lights easily, and burns very easily. If you smoke it SLOWLY it will not only taste better but WILL NOT BURN YOU!. If it was really so bad then it would not still be around after 75 years! So try it again and this time SLOW DOWN from your hectic life, get away from your computer, put down the cell phone and enjoy a classic.
Not the Dutchman, but a good smoke. Mild,no bite,burns to a white ash.Although it didn t match, I think I'll try EMP and compare to the real EMP in my english rotation. GB
Flying Dutchman match this is NOT! Simply a mild aromatic Cavendish blend with about a 2 room-note.
I like this a lot and it not to strong.
