MATCH Nightcap

This is a match to Dunhill Nightcap. This is a robust Latakia-based blend, enhanced by matured Virginias, exotic Turkish and a touch of rich, dark Perique for robust body, a hint of spice and a deep, mellow sweetness. As Dunhill blends will soon be gone, MATCH - Nightcap is sure to find its way into your rotation as an even more affordable alternative.

Product just as described. Great company to deal with.

No match point here.
Not all what I dreamed of, only the vaguest hint of nightcap, maybe the Ben's were located near each other. Not a match, smoking time wasted.

It's OK, but it is no Nightcap
I hate to be the only d__k in the reviewer group, but... This is no match for Nightcap. It tastes something like it, almost, but it is neither as strong nor as sweet as the original. It is a rather pleasant though unremarkable English in its own right, but it lacks that flavor tie-in that makes Nightcap so great. If you are looking for something that will replace Nightcap, look elsewhere. Sigh. If the demand gets big enough, Russ will think of something!

Pretty good stuff
I'm a Latikia hound, so I found this blend great!

Soft and light. Good for nightcap or first in day.

An Excellent Smoke!
this is an exceptional English! Creamy, smooth and earthy but then gives a peppery tingle on the tongue. the different tobaccos used in this blend really work well together for a great flavor and a surprisingly good room note. I'll be ordering a LOT more of this blend! P.S. Goes great with Knob Creek Single Barrel Bourbon!

It’s good, but not Nightcap
I really enjoyed this tobacco, and I really had high hopes that it was close to Dunhill NC, but it’s just not quite there. It has the same tin note, and the components are all there (latikia, perique, Virginia), but somehow they just don’t marry together like expected. There is a point about midway through the bowl when this smoke has a Dunhill moment, and that’s why I’ll keep smoking it; however, it won’t be my replacement for the real thing.

MATCH Nightcap, A really good blend
MATCH Nightcap is a really good blend. The Turkish Tobacco through me off at first as I was not accustomed to it's flavor and aroma but after a few bowls I really started likeing this blend to the point that I will definitely put it in my rotation. MATCH Nightcap will be a good replacement for the Original Dunhill Nightcap once it is gone. I believe it will cellar nicely and age well. Keep up the good work Pipes and Cigars.

Good clone
I am the once in a while Nightcap guy. Roughly once a month I would guess. I tried this with a good friend who smokes his Nightcap every night whiteout fail. For myself, this nailed it and once dunhill goes away this will be my go too for Nightcap. My buddy said he really enjoyed it, but it’s not Dunhill Nightcap. I thought the nic was good but my friend thought it had less than the original. My honest opinion is that it could be in the marketing for my friend. I think he wanted it to be an identical clone, but it isn’t. Close enough for me...and my buddy ordered some as well. Side note, I think the tin note is stronger than Dunhill, but once you light it up the room note and mouthfeel is very comparable. Thanks

Pretty Good English

Near Perfect Match
Good match to nightcap, but, doesn't seem to have quite the kick, so, I mix pound for pound with the original, gets it even closer as a perfect match and still saves you money. So, if you like a rich, full flavored smoke with some kick and no bite, give this a shot. As always, P&C has a great selection, great prices, and shipping that can't be beat. Thanks again P&C for another match.

Tastefully heavy with no burnt bite
Can't say much more than this is a great and flavorful smoke that will remain in my rotation. Having never tried dunhil's blend of this I can't compare the two, what I can say is this stuff is superb and a safe buy.

I recommend this
Very tasty blend.I haven't smoked Nightcap since the late 90's,so due to the time lapse,I can't say if it is spot on or not. If you want a good full mixture,buy/try this one.I recommend this.

Nightcap has been a favorite of mine since the late 1960's. This match is very good and has good body and a lot of depth. But these days none of the Latakia seems to have the saltiness of the old days. Other than that, I have 16 ounces of this and it is pretty good in its own right.

Better Than The Original
Honestly, I like it better than the original Dunhill Nightcap. I heard a lot about NC before I got to try it and when I did finally try it I just wasn't that impressed. Bit of a let down quite honestly. When the NC Match arrived in my Pipe Tobacco of the Month Club box I was a little disappointed at first. I figured if I didn't care much for the original, how good could a match be? Well, I was wrong! I can't put this stuff down. Once I finish the 4 oz I have now, I might have to order some more of this...maybe by the pound! Definitely worth giving it a try.

strong flavored full bodied flavor has a slight bite to it but mixes well with cavendish in the woods to reduce the bite very enjoyable tobacco

This is an excellent match to Nightcap. I found it slightly drier, and that made if even more relaxing. My only regret is that I only purchased 2 ounces.

Very Good "Match"
As a purveyor of many Dunhill blends, I find the Nightcap Match a very close facsimile of the name brand. It smokes cool and evenly and although the moisture content of the blend is somewhat drier than the tinned original, it delivers the same basic notes as it's more expensive counterpart. In short, a great value and one that is sure to please a seasoned pipe smoker.

Spot on mix
I recently purchased the Match Blend Nightcap from P&C. I was pleased myself with the taste and quality taken to get as close to the Original mixture. I then put it to the test. A good friend of mine who got me back into pipe smoking is the person who put me on the trail of Nightcap to begin with. I gave him an ounce to try. He is very picky when it comes to tobaccos and flavors. After a few bowls of the Match Nightcap, he was impressed at how close if not identical to the original that the Match Bland is. Thank you for the great variety and high quality of your products you continue to produce and distribute to us.
