I usually smoke aromatic blends; however, I also like to have a English blend for those occasions when I like to set back fill my Corncob with a non-aromatic. This medium strong fits the bill.

Similar tobaccos at a local
Similar tobaccos at a local pipe shop are about 90% more. I always try to support local merchants first but their markup is ridiculous. Delivery time on this order was much better. The previous order was almost three weeks.

One of my Favorite Balkan/English blends.
One of my favorite Balkan/English blends. Latakia is very pleasant and forward of the orientals. My two favorite Balkan/English blends is Match Mixture 965 and Balkan Sasieni.

Perfect match!
He loves it! When Dunhill stopped making his favorites, he was so happy to find this. He says he can't tell a difference at all!

Great blend, even for an aromatic smoker like me
I have been a fan of aromatics for a long time and finally decided to try another English blend. On my first bowl I was hooked. I really like the flavor that comes through and it smokes very evenly with no bite. I only ordered 2 ounces to try it...going to have to get some more on my next order!

An expertly done, and remarkable mixture.
I'd been a Dunhill My Mixture 965 smoker for most of my adult life (I'm 59 years old), and I was very unhappy (to say the least) when Dunhill stopped producing pipe tobacco. I took a chance, based on the recommendations from several friends, and ordered 16oz's of the Match version. I figured that I really didn't have anything to lose, that even if it didn't quite hit the mark, I was running low on daily use tobacco and needed something to fill the jars with. Well.... I have to say that I am pleasently surprised by this mixture, and it far exceeded my expectations. Memory (my memory) is a funny thing, and it's very difficult to tell if one tobacco is an exact match to another, by memory alone, and it would be impossible to compair fresh samples of each at this point. However, this tobacco certainly does take me on a walk down memory lane, and it is quite familiar! I think that I remember the Dunhill My Mixture 965 having a bit more latakia, but that's way OK with me. I've grown to like a little bit less latakia in my tobacco anyway. The way the sweetness of the Virginia and Orientals are allowed to come forward in this blend, provide a very pleasant, rich and creamy smoke, with no bite. It burns cleanly and evenly, with very little (to none) moisture build up in the pipe (ie no gurgling). This is odd, because the tobacco feels a bit more moist than I remember the Dunhill 965 being. It's also got a fairly high level of nicotine like the original. This is a remarkable blend, well worth stocking up on for aging, I'm going to order a couple more pounds, and put it into pint size mason jars to see what happens!

This was among the first pipe tobaccos I ever smoked, and it's still one I go back to.

This is a top notch blend! It has a flavorful taste with just the right amount of Latakia, and a sweet, pleasant smell; It's a very enjoyable smoke that has become my go to blend. I Highly recommend it!

965 a classic
Dunhill 965 smokes well by itself or can be mixed with some Virginia to be a bit less strong, can mix with 1Q for an English aromatic. A classic blend

Great smoke!
Love it. Been smoking it for a long time and had to switch after Dunhill quit selling it. Worked out great!

A good old-fashioned American tobacco

This is not a bad tobacco but just a little mild for me. Probably won't buy again but only because of personal taste as the tobacco is okay.

Admirable approximation
Good notes and balance for a medium English blend.

Incredible blend! My first taste of an English style, and was blown away with the flavor, depth and coolness. Will definitely be coming back to this again. I think I've found my goto blend.

My Favorite P&C Match Blend
Four stars and not five stars because I like less aromatics and flavorings than are commonly available these days.

My mixture 965
This is a decent blend on its own but has a bit much latikia for my personal taste however it burns very well with no bite. I’d definitely buy again (I mixed 50/50 with Flying Dutchman and it makes it more to my liking)

MATCH My Mixture 965 - not as strong as the original in my view
MATCH My Mixture 965 is a good tobacco and well priced. I can smoke it all day - has no bite and is rlatively cool. However, to my taste memory, Peter Stokkebye 52 Proper English is closer to the original 965 in that it has both the punch and aroma.

My favorite blend!
I'm new to pipe smoking, about 1 month as of 13 Jan 2018. I've missed out on the real "My Mixture 965". I randomly ordered this and love it. Not sure of the components, but awesome go to blend. I'm ordering 3 oz any time I order.

Match 965 close
This is a very close match, but is missing something. BUT, I still like it, and so far this is my favorite english/scottish/balkan blend. My favorite is smoking it in a MM General Corn Cob for a great 1 1/2 hour enjoyable smoke.

This is a good Balkan style mixture which smokes well with only white ash left at the end. The tastes are quite good and last through the smoking time.

Good value
I like Dunhill more, but this is close to it, although, not as strong. They did a pretty good job on it. Maybe if you cellared it for a while? I will buy again.

Very good but missing a lil zest
I am still refining my palate so I by no means feel qualified to review lol. My first English was John Bull in a sampler pack, I was hooked instantly. Then I tried PS luxury, it was very good too. Match fits the same bill. It was strong but not make you sweat and contemplate upchucking strong. It had spice and sweet zest yet mellow at the same time it ticks all the boxes my brain has set in regards to taste and smell yet I feel it’s missing some zest. Nonetheless it is good! I never had the fortune to try Dunhill so as I cannot compare but if your looking for a good English try this I dare!! Please excuse my grammar I’m just a good Old country boy whom enjoys my pipes!!

Match My Mixture 965
Blend of tobacco is good, but the ribbon cut changes pack, burn and overalll taste. Any chance of a Riff or fine cut on this blend?

965 Bliss
965 blend has become my favorite blend now of latakia loose blends. The flavor is full and rich, and it lights and burns cool and easily. So I have stocked up on Match my mixture 965. It is so good!

Heat Until The Heavy Casing Dissipates
The Match 965, although not an aromatic, arrived with a very noticeable top dressing. It was not simply over humidified! As such, it was virtually non-combustible and when I could get it lit, it smoked very hot. In an attempt to salvage 1/2 lb., I spread it out on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven at 225 degrees until it felt dry. After removing it, I misted it with distilled water and packed it tightly into a jar. Five days later, I had a very near clone to Sutliff Balkan II.

Not Even Close
In its own right, I would call this Match blend an English aromatic. It is really no match for the real Dunhill My Mixture 965. The Cavendish in the Match is very forward, and will appeal to an aromatic smoker who wants to dip into an English style blend with some Latakia. I just did a side by side comparison of the two blends, and I find the Match version to be lacking the nuance and complexity of the Dunhill 965. The tangy flavor that you get in the Dunhill is absent, the Latakia comes and goes, and the subtle sweetness of the Dunhill is missing. It is not nearly as balanced and smooth as the Dunhill. Give this one a pass unless you are new to English blends and just want to dip your bowl into some Latakia.

Dunhill 965 Match (Sutliff)
I've gone through about a pound and a half of this blend. I've burned it in a variety of briars: Dunhill, Charatan, Barling, Castello, Ashton's, Caminetto, Peterson's System, even Kaywoodie and Custom Built. I've also used it in a few meershaum pipes. Nice cake not particularly wet nice gray-white ash. It is a pretty good blend over all, and for the price I rate it 4 out of 5 stars. It is really not anything like any iteration of the Dunhill 965's that I've smoked over the years (since 1967). The cut is really broad and hence relatively slow burning. The Latakia is well placed and you don't have to burn it hot to get really nice complex flavor from it. Even leaving it sit over night I can still enjoy a rich flavor without any bitterness. I also been smoking Sutliff's Nightcap match which is a little closer to the Dunhill blends under that name over the years. I could go on about the blend but to cut to the chase, It doesn't really substitute for Dunhill 965. For a better match, as I said, maybe try the NightCap instead.

Flavor was good but there was a bit more 'bite' than I expected.

Match My mix 965
This is your best Match yet. Longer ribbons and more flavor. A little more Latakia and it would be perfect. Its actually better than my last order of original 965.

1st blend I'd recommended.
Now I'm still rather new to pipe smoking and I have yet to get a hold of the original. But with that said, to me this is what I think of when I think pipe tobacco.

Great smoke, I like it. I catch myself reaching for it anytime rather than my usual daily smokes.

A very good smoke, highly recommended
This was the first English blend that I fell in love with. Never smoked the Dunhill, so won't compare them. This blend has a complexity that I never expected in such an economical tobacco. The taste lingers and develops in my mouth after each puff. It's not something I'd keep in my mouth all day; not because it't not good enough, but because I like to smoke it when I can devote my full attention to the smoke. It's like listening to a fine piece of music. It's not overpowering like some English blends but not a lightweight either. I'd call it a 'sophisticated' taste, but I don't smoke it inside.

A nice starter English. Good stuff.

Really Good Tobacco
As soon as I opened the bag I could tell this was going to be a good smoking experience . It had that same aroma I remember from the when I smoked actual Dunhill.

Great match!!
Found to be very enjoyable smoke, will definitely fill the bill since the original is supposed to be going away

Good, but no great
Not my favorite. I loved the MATCH Nightcap. But i probably wont order this while that's available.

Close substitute
Not quite the same as the original but I am aging it some to see if I get more enjoyment after letting it sit in jar for a while. Nice price though and if Dunhill is indeed gone, will work for subsitute

Not a match at all really
The boldness isn’t there and it has bite. Not a close enough match for me to buy again.

Great Start To The Day!
I'm enjoying a bowl of this with my morning coffee as I write this review. This is an excellent blend of tobaccos to offer a full smokey flavor with an "incense like" herbal aroma and a very nice room note. No tongue bite, not too much nicotine and an overall satisfying smoke. Great English blend,... I HIGHLY recommend this!

I ordered flying dutchman but got dunhill 965 instead. It's a good tobacco; so, no complaints.

Match vs. Dunhill 965
OK we have match 965 and we have Dunhill 965 Mr. Alfred's personal favorite blend. The match is close but no cigar. It has a bit of a bite and is not as full as the real 965 which I have been smoking on and off for 55 years. If you're strapped for cash save a little money and buy the match. But, if you want the real McCoy get the Dunhill tobacco. I usually buy it in bulk and P & C has a pretty fair price. The Dunhill has more body to the smoke without being over powering. The Latakia is softly noted in the smoke and is no problem.

Latakia Lovers Look Longingly, Then Leap.
The 965 mano a mano between Match and Dunhill is the most fun I've had since getting back to pipes after my wandering listlessly in Camel Land. The Battle of the Blends is a beautiful concept, executed beautifully, and this particular matchup is an eye-opener. As a side note, as a result of this battle I will start cellaring, and my next P&C order will include Bengal Slices. Both of these Blends are great, so there are no real losers here, but the Match emerges victorious because of the x-factor, despite the excellence of both 965's. IMO a good English tobacco should be smoky, oaky, and dry, reminiscent of a good whiskey (scotch, not bourbon, my American friends), but the Match also provided a faint teasing floral note - almost incense - that brought back my first experiences with English nearly twenty years ago, and a blend for which I willingly traveled two hours, uphill, barefoot. The differences between the two 965 contenders are many. Dunhill looks nearly like a shag instead of the nice ribbon of the Match. The Match had optimal moisture out of the bag, while the Dunhill was a tad dry & therefore burned a little hotter initially - but that was correctable and corrected. Match edges out Dunhill in room note, too, but only barely, and this is perhaps where Dunhill disappoints, with more cigar smell than pipe. My favorite pipe is not my most expensive pipe, nor is my favorite shirt the most costly. So while Match is slightly less expensive, that is only a small consideration in this matchup. I will pay more for quality, but my loyalty is to my taste, not to brand names. I am proud to call both of these blends excellent, but I'm much more likely to buy much much more of the Match.

Real Good Smoke
A little more milder than Dunhill, but its good. Especially with a little pinch of Burley added to the bowl full.

Very nice...
This site has a bigger selection than the tobacco shops in town. I was also able to find the right filters for my pipe, which saves me from rolling my own filters.

Denser tobacco or just me?
I received my order very quickly and was very happy with both types. The Match is better price and seemes a little sweeter but I was surpised that the Dunhill comes in 2 ziplock baggies while the Match only needed 1. Once I placed both in same size jars, the Dunhill still fills jar more with same 3 0z. Not sure if this means the Match is denser but I will probably still purchase more of Match due to cost and flavor over the original.

Pretty Good
This is a pretty good blend that I reorder occasionally. There are other Latakia blends I prefer but this is good straight up tobacco. Creamy and slight sweet it will satisfy the crave for the smoky stuff.

A Really Good "Match"
This is an excellent match to My Mixture 965. Same smoky smell and taste. The moisture content was very nice. I put in some old saved Dunhill tins and almost forget it isn't the real thing.
3 out of 5
On this last batch, I'd describe it as corse and gnarly. Taste and aroma is on target, but the 'riff' cut is a bit heavier than normal, and there is an abnormal amount of stem and stalk embedded with the leaf. Having ordered, smoked and enjoying this blend for years, I'd presume this last batch to be an anamoly.
5 out of 5
Tastes great, smells good bites a little, will buy again

Some bite.
The mix of this blend has a bit more of a bite than I like in my pipe. It's OK, but not as mild as I would like. It is well worth 1 oz. to see if you like it. Give it a try, it may be for you.

Match Perfect
An excellent and reasonably priced Dunhill match. Smooth and satisfying. Smokes perfectly in my Dunhill pipes!

Very nice.
Really enjoy this tobacco. Great smoke, room note, and the taste is nice too. Doesn't smoke hot, and easy on the tongue. Definitely worth a try, you won't be disappointed.
Customer Testimonials
Man – I’ve read so much about this tobacco (OK more about Dunhill 965) I’m a big fan of both Dunhill and Match Early Morning Pipe, but 965 has left me flat. I did not find anything special about it. Perhaps I’ll let it sit for a while or maybe try the Dunhill brand.
HT of Melbourne, FL
Very impressed with the balanced flavor and smoothness. Smoky latakia in opening light settling to a persistent smokiness balanced but a hazelnut and toasty aroma. No bite. Not too light or heavy with nicotine. Disclaimer, I have not smoked the dunhill 965, but this blend is excellent mixture that deserves praise in its own right.
TH of Laguna Hills, CA
This is a "kinder, gentler" knockoff of Dunhill My Mixture 965. In the descriptions here on P&C, the Dunhill tobacco gets four diamonds in the strength-rating, this only two. That may be overstating the difference just a little. Sometimes I used to cut the DMM965 with something less brash. Never necessary with this stuff. So I prefer this knockoff to the original. The taste is quite similar, but turned down a click or two. And the price is better too.
This is one tobacco that I keep coming back to... Absolutely nothing negative about it. Highly recommend .
