Product just as described. Excellent company to deal with.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
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 .
