Peterson Nightcap


For all of the P&C Faithful who were concerned that Dunhill tobaccos had disappeared forever - good news! The blends are back using the same exact blends and tobaccos, coming from the same factory. The only thing that's different is that they are now under the Peterson name. Even the classic artwork remains.

PetersonNightcap is one of the "big three" Peterson blends and is far and away the heftiest of the bunch. There are excellent Virginias and Orientals in this Dunhill tobacco blend, no doubt, but the real stars of this show are the substantial amount of fine Latakia and the addition of darkly sweet and peppery Perique in this Nightcap. For a full-bodied smoke that's the ideal ending to a long day, this rich Nightcap tobacco is a superb choice to add to your Peterson collection.

Dunhill Nightcap
Certainly a robust blend. Perfect for a Cigar Smoker trying out a pipe. Achieving and maintaining the appropriate moisture level can be a challenge. Of course, that is subject to taste. The aroma was good, flavor was straight up.

Heavy 1st time
I'm giving this a middle rating because I didn't really enjoy how heavy and complex it was. I'm a very beginner pipe smoker so please don't put too much weight into this review

My favorite
As of right now, this is my favorite blend. Don’t be intemidated by what others have said about it. It’s delicious!

Great!!
Amazing tin note, robust and alluring. First half of the bowl was an intense combination of flavors. After a while you begin to grasp the complexity and pleasing flavor. Fantastic way to enjoy a nice evening. The "nic hit" isnt quite as strong as the legends suggest, but it is noticeable. Very enjoyable.

one of my favorites,no, it is my favorite
I am not a frequent pipe smoker, but when I do, I love some nightcap. This is very smooth and fragrant pipe tobacco. It is my current favorite. I am still awaiting the devestation that Dunhill closing down it pipe tobacco section will cause. No match mixes even come close. I will be truly upset as this is a great tobacco.

Not for an ignorant fledgling pipe smoker
This is actually a "re-review".... I wrote a review panning this tobacco on March 19. Since then I have watched a few YouTube vids on pipe smoking tips. I have since let it dry out a little and learned how to properly pack the bowl. I had been packing it too tight. What a difference! This really is nice stuff with many complex flavors and aromas. Now I'm happy! It pays to learn what you are doing.

dang
i'm fairly new to pipe smoking as i am a cigar smoker for almost 10 years and it's very different. that being said night cap to me is really heavy. it's an acquired taste probably for more "experienced" pipe smokers i've had heavy cigars which weren't my cup of tea but if you like tobacco that smells the musk of a sweaty clint eastwood in the good the bad and the ugly and a taste that'll kick you in the mouth like chuck norris than this is for you lol. i think over time i might enjoy this more.

Not for a fledgling pipe smoker
I don't have much experience smoking pipe, that being said, I was really disappointed with this stuff. My favorite so far is Mcclelland #12 which is now "unobtanium" so I received an order of 4 CAO blends, this one, and 2 Captain Blacks from P&C. I guess I prefer 'aromatic' type tobaccos like Captain Black original and CAO CherryBomb. This stuff tastes like smoking mud to my newbee palate.

This is one of my go to blends had to dry it out a bit, excellent smoke with great flavor.

New Smoker
Dunhill Nightcap was one of the first blends I tried as a new smoker. I purchased it because Dunhill blends (this one in particular) are very popular. It was alright, but a little too much tongue-bite for me. Personally, I prefer blends without Perique.

One of my favorites...
Fine quality, and a great blend.

Incredible
Truly a delicious English blend. This blend is pretty much what every English blends attempts to mimic... I think I’ve figured out it’s flavor profile, imagine a normal English blend like John Bull, but with I very mild hint of Cigar Leaf. It says it doesn’t include cigar lead but it definitely has the room not of cigar leaf. This blend isn’t as strong in nicotine as it claims but the flavor is very full and satisfying.

My favorite Dunhill blend so far
One of my favorite blends, it taste similar to Missouri Meerschaum American Patriot to me, but that may just be because of the latikia and the fact that i haven't tried many English blends yet

Interesting Experience
I am just getting back into pipe smoking. I got a range of tobacco a few weeks ago with this one. I was not a fan at first due to how harsh and strong I thought it was. Over time it has grown on me. It is offers a unique flavor that makes me think of pine trees. As strong as it is, it has smooth nature about it while having no trouble staying lit. It does have a very strong tobacco aroma that stays with you after you’re done. Maybe you don’t care about that, but some may be concerned about that. It seems like a solid tobacco, but just not personally for me. Maybe I’ll come back to it in a year or so and see if I’ve grown to like it more.

Awesome Latakia forward blend. Strong but mellow and not overpowering at all. I think it’s my favorite Latakia blend.

A New Friend
Since Presbyterian is out of the picture right now, I've been looking for a new friend. Been trying new English blends all summer and now on the advent of the long winter...I think I've found a new friend. Perique always "frightened" me as too much is like putting table pepper in your pipe. And though there are those who like that, it's not for me. But Night Cap's blend, including the Perique is what I call a great solution to the science and art of blending. To be fair...respect it and take your time. If you do, you won't be dashed. I'm glad we found each other. Thanks jat

Maybe my tastes aren't English
It's a great blend, but I finished my entire Hearth & Home Harvest before cracking the tin a second time. Maybe I'm just not English enough.

Arguably the boldest and definitely one of the best!
Nightcap is the total big English blend. It is robust and satisfying and it is not selling any top note. It is a touch sweet, nice and smoky, and has a depth all its own. You'll want to savor the flavor in your quiet place, hence it actually is a good pre-bedtime option. Stock up while you still can!

My favorite blend!
Very smokey taste with some pepper and hints of floral tones when blown through ones nose. I like it from both freshly opened tin, to aged and mellowed. And the tin note is that of a campfire on a soggy night. I'm doing all I can to stock up before it gone. You should too.

Unexpectedly mild English blend
Unexpectedly mild for a blend advertised as bold and robust. Came packed into a moist cake. Strong smoky Latakia note in the tin. Smoked in a clean Dr. Grabow Lark Full Bent - my favorite evening pipe - with a fresh filter. Mild smoking but with full taste of toasty Virginia and smoky Latakia. Not a hint of bite. The Perique dominates the room note. Deserves it's name. A perfect evening smoke. Stocking up.
5 out of 5
Strong as Noted
Very strong flavor, peppery perique, full body smoke, stayed lit right out of the tin. I let it dry for a couple weeks now I'm storing it in a jar to see why others recommend doing that way.

Dunhill's Nightcap
Nightcap is a pleasant and decidedly English blend. Latakia and a touch of Perique are balanced with Virginias to create one of Dunhill's very best blends. Nightcap is a great departure from my regular pipe tobacco; Lane's 1-Q

Lives up to its reputation
This is one of the tins I've always wanted. Smokes well and has a nice, smooth taste. Smells similar to Peterson's Old Dublin, but smokes and tastes different.

This much Latakia = Too much for me
Well, this is the first English blend/Latakia heavy tobacco I've ever tried. I definitely am not used to the Latakia aroma (some might say stench), and it's taken me a long time to come around to this tobacco. The first time I ever tried it, I didn't mind the act of smoking it as much as the aroma, but I didn't enjoy my time with it. After 6 months of the tobacco mellowing out in the tin, the aroma isn't as harsh, and smoking the tobacco has become pleasant. Definitely not my favorite, but I'm learning to like it.

Nightcap dreams....
My go to blend....I've bought this many times and just got a tin in the mail. I couldn't wait to open the tin to smell the earthy campfire note explode from the can. Reminiscing about previous encounters with my old friend I load a bowl right off the bat. Almost ignoring the other selections in my order box. That first puff rolls through like a dream. Each better than the last I know my next several days will be awesome with this blend in stock. I'm now enjoying a lasting finish that goes fine with my morning coffee. I will hate to see you go nightcap. You're the bomb!!

I am too dumb to know how truly good this is.
As a new pipe smoker, it is hard to distinguish the complex flavors I hear so much that come from Dunhill's Nightcap. I picked up my first pipe not too long ago and unknowingly bought what to me was an unpleasant Lane BCA. Not to badmouth BCA, I have since learned to enjoy it, but I would much rather smoke Nightcap. Without my sense of taste to put to words how good this tobacco is, you'll just have to take my word that it is well worth it. Highly recommended, even for a "new-to-tobacco" pipe smoker, do not be scared by the reputation this blend holds. Go easy, and enjoy... I'm sure you will.

good flavor
it is a good smoke but may be a bit strong for some especially if you are used to aromatics.
5 out of 5
My personal favorite
Nightcap from Dunhill is my favorite blend, I end every evening with a wonderful pipe full of this tobacco. This blend changes as you smoke it, latakia comes through on one puff while perique or orientals come through on rhe next. The balance is very nice, it is a rich and powerful tobacco blend and one I would never run out of.
5 out of 5
Light but flavorful
I like smoking English blends for their flavor and aroma but many are just too heavy for evening. Nightcap has the flavor I want but is still light enough that I can enjoy before bedtime.

Famous name average smoke
I am amused at how do many people parrot each other on this blend. Folks come on this blend is average at very best. Really some of you folks need to venture out more. I enjoy this blend however it seems to try to please everyone, which I notice seems to be the motivation of Dunhill brands. This blend is a general kind of smoke that does not shine in room note,flavor or flavor taste. Sure it is a nice smoke but way too bland to stand out in any catagory. The Latakia is almost nonexistent so no real smoky flavor. I tend to think some folks think because it says Dunhill....well gosh it must be the best. Open up your horizons and try other brands even small little know brands which may truly surprise you!

Dunhill nightcap gets full 5 star brandings!!!
This dunhill is a remarkably gwntle but full bodied medallic winning english but out of the past 1675-1800‘s that focuses on the sembarisms of what the body needs throughout the month all the way to.each day,..after day,....aiding and quinlling to all of its other tobaccoas in its needs and mwlding a coeficienc that equals a bottled.100% perfectual nature im a bottle,...while providing a good smokey and tastey.english at the same time,...a perfect late day remedy for any.after dinner relaxation needs,...where a total rewrite.and oscilation of concernse are in need...for that untempermental worry free night time smoke!! I‘ll always come back to P&C to buy it...very recommended for new smokers too!!

Dunhill Nightcap
A superb blend with sweet hay-like Virginias, spicy Perique, and dark smokey Latakia. Some may say that it's best after a hearty meal, but I find it to be excellent anytime.

Dunhill Nightcap
I'd had my eye on Dunhill Nightcap for awhile whenever I looked through the Pipes And Cigars catalog. I was happy to finally pick up a tin! A dark, heavy taste will a little spice. Very satisfying!

I'll Have a (Dunhill) Nightcap Please!
I received a 1.76oz tin of Nightcap in the King of the Dunhill Sampler (which I highly recommend). Nightcap has a really nice, rich flavor and smokes very smooth. The room note is quite nice as well. I usually start off (or end) the evening with a few bowls that are on the Latakia side of things then I always end with a bowl of Nightcap. You can't go wrong with any Dunhill tobacco. Good stuff.

Perfect For End Of Day
Thank goodness for the English. They have a tobacco for every part of the day. Nite Cap is perfect for the end of day! Full bodied and flavorful. Stays lite and gives a good long smoke. Not for beginners but ideal for seasoned smokers.

A great blend to relax with
I love this blend and smoke it nightly. Its full flavored, smokey, has some good spice and a very slight sweetness to it. Plenty of vitamin N but not over the top like I have heard but I have a higher tolerance than some. It puts me in a relaxed state of mind by the end of each bowl and never gets old. Smokes very well. You can bring out or calm some of the flavors by changing your smoking pace.

I'll always keep some on hand
I took the plunge into Latakia's early and not very gradually. I'm not a fan of most aromatics and stick mainly to English blends. Nightcap is among my favorites. It's bold and full of flavor. A very relaxing smoke. I like to dry it out a bit (about an hour on a sheet of paper) because straight out of the tin it's a bit gooey. I will always have some on hand.
5 out of 5
Definitely a keeper
Nice rich English blend. This was part of my first journey into the world of more full English tobaccos along with Tsuge's Ryujin (I was a big fan of Ashton's Artisan blend and Dunhill's London for a while prior but wanted a bit more heft). This blend is very rich, with a mostly smokey, slightly spicey, with a faint hint of earth balance but even as I am just adjusting to heavier blends, this was very pleasant. I think the Ryujin seemed to be a small amount smoother with more spice/earth flavors to it, but this blend has also been a treat to have around.

Never fails.
Has to be the 4th tin of Nightcap I've enjoyed. It is, my favorite mix to enjoy in the late ours of night. Burns nice, fills the room with a lovely note. I even enjoy it when friends smoke it. I actually put a tin of it on my Christmas list! Wife asks: What do you want for Christmas? I said... Find tobacco, another tin of Nightcap!

Funny name for such a strong mixture. Every time I have a "last bowl" of it I end up following up with a bowl of 965. Nightcap will always be on rotation.

Dunhill Nightcap: Pleasant, bold, and a fantastic smoke to cap off the day with.
When first opening the tin you're greeted with what is by FAR the strongest smelling English Blend your nose is ever going to come across. A bold leather scent takes the foreground while hints of hearty camp fire lie calmly, but not unnoticed, in the background. Whilst packing the pipe the first thing you'll notice is the remarkable dryness of the tobacco in this blend. It feels almost like cut and dried grass to give you an idea of the consistency. This is very far from a moist tobacco. I'm not sure if this is because it's a bold English blend or what, but these tobaccos are cured In an entirely different manner than any other pipe tobacco blend I have ever tried. Once I'd had the pipe all loaded it was time to spark it up. After I'd got the char light in and proceeded with the official light it was time to put my night cap on and get this pipe rolling . To much surprise, the first 1/3 of the bowl was not NEARLY as strong as I'd thought it was going to be. What I'd gathered from the numerous reviews I had sought out and read about this oh so popular English blend was that it is bolder than anything you'd ever experienced or could ever experience in your lifetime. However, that was not the case. You're initially greeted with a very, very nutty and almost woodsy flavor. You almost have to actively seek out the typical English blend flavors to really taste them. On the other hand, the 2nd third of the bowl was an almost entirely different experience all together. The Latakia really pulled through in this portion of the bowl. Everything you love in a good English blend was pleasantly bold in the 2/3. The woodsy , leathery, strong tobacco taste that English blends are known for is on the front lines now, and it's showing no signs of letting up. In the last 3rd of the bowl the flavor was almost exclusively a nice, rich tobacco taste mixed with a little bit of campfire undertones. A fantastic note to end on I would say. Dunhill Nightcap is a very pleasant smoke IMO.

Nice and Strong But Didn't Like the Flavor
I know I'm in the minority here, but I didn't like it. It wasn't the strength (I in fact love strong tobacco), but it was the flavor that was rather off-putting. Simply not a fan of the nightcap.

Dark and smooth
Heavy Latakia blend, great flavor. Great smoke for sitting on the back porch and decompressing from a hard day's work. Overall, my favorite Latakia blend.

Dunhill Tins....
Just purchased Dunhill nightcap & Early morning pipe. Needless to say these are tobaccos for the experienced pipe smoker. Nightcap has a little bite to it. But very refreshing smoke. Early morning is great no bite & yes I have it early in the morning as per the directions lol. Would. It again as well behave in the past.

Was not my favorite
This was not a bad tobacco, It just did not do it for me. I think I'll avoid this one in the future.
3 out of 5
Not my nightcap
So, I will admit I bought this one for the label and name. Great marketing. However, not to bash Dunhill, I found this tin to be rather disappointing. Not that I can put my finger on why, it just seemed to NOT be what I would consider my "end of day" tobacco to be. What is my "end of day" tobacco? Lane's brands, Tsuge's (autumn and summer batches), Penzance, and I just discovered Cult, which was a pleasant surprise. Another brand I bought because of the name and reviews. I see this is getting rave reviews, so I may just be an outlier.

Consistantly rich,smooth and relaxing
Like all of Dunhill's tobaccos, Nightcap has a depth and complexity of flavors that is truly relaxing. It is the perfect end of the day long slow smoke. I smoke other Dunhill tobacco during the day but Nightcap is the one I always end with. It never disappoints!

Perfect English blend!
A lot has been said about nightcap,but why talk just enjoy it.I like this better than Royal yacht, nicotine is present but not overpowering which makes this a perfect English blend.Buy it,enjoy it,save the tin and repeat.

Taste that smell!
When you open a fresh tin of Dunhill Nightcap, you know just what you're in for. That delicious English aroma presents itself, not only to your sense of smell, but to your tastebuds. Dark and heavy. Scrumptious!

Strong & Bold
Nightcap is by far the best English that I have had so far, It's bold and full of flavor. I didn't have a problem with the nicotine content, but be careful if you have little experience with nicotine as you may feel sick. Overall great smoke, burned well and room note was strong, but extremely pleasant.

Hey. This is really good tobacco
I just took up pipe smoking again, but this time with intrigue and great interest this past winter. And, of course, I read a lot, and read a lot of reviews on tobaccos. So, along with aromatics, which I already knew I liked, I got a tin of Nightcap because the tobacco was highly acclaimed. The first pipe full (which I can't remember if I finished or not) gave me horrible indigestion in the middle of the night. So, I didn't touch that tin again until maybe a couple weeks. Wow. All of a sudden it went from hate to love. What happened I don't know, but immediately upon light up the 2nd try my eyes grew wide and my immediate thought was "Hey. This is really good tobacco."

Whoa!
I have to give this all-time classic at least four stars, even though it proved to be too much for this guy! I smoked a large bowl of the "real thing" after having some knock offs of this Dunhill standby and...wow...was that an intense smoke. The room note was overpowering (my mom complained from the other end of the house...and that's a long way), and the taste was/is not for the faint of heart! I thought that I was almost a "veteran" pipe smoker. Now I know better. If you like a REALLY full-bodied, unforgiving English style blend, with just a hint of the aromatic to it, give this one a try. It's an old favorite for a reason, please don't get me wrong. There are pipe aficionados out there who will love this, as you can see from the reviews. I won't be buying anymore because I'm too much of a wimp! Don't let my experience stop you! Smoke 'em if you got 'em gents! :)

I first tried this as a step trio of Latakia blends. It is now my favorite of the three. It smokes perfect in my Meerschaum. The taste is marvelous and it is soo relaxing. Perfect after dinner and/or just before bed. Love it.

Woodsy flavor with a bite like whiskey, this blend is a little too robust for my taste in my short-stemmed briarwood, but is a delight in my church warden. Fantastic aroma. Perfect for a dark, rainy day!

An aquired taste
I think this is like fine scotch. No one tries it the first time and says Wow this stuff is great. And so it is with this type of tobacco. That being said this is a VERY nice smoke. The smoke is like the flavor, thick, rich and smooth.

First English tobacco
Dunhill Nightcap is the first "English" tobacco I smoked after smoking aromatics for 5 plus years. I bought this tobacco because it was highly rated on the website, so I figured why not give it a shot..... First smoke was not particularly enjoyable because I wasn't totally expecting the strength (even though I read reviews and looked at the characteristics of the tobacco). After another few smokes, this blend really grew on me and I will continue to smoke it. Postivies: + Smoky Latakia flavor + Rich and robust + Smooth finish...much like a fine alcoholic beverage Negatives: -Can be a bit to strong for some

A Superb Alternative to a Liquid "Nightcap"
I'm only an occasional smoker, but I've been puffing a pipe off and on for nearly 5 years now. I must say, this blend is nearly one of the best that I've come across. Rich, smooth, and mellow, this tobacco blend may just be the perfect thing for me to relax with at the end of a long day. It reminds me of the things I love most in a nice peat-y scotch, and is a great stand in when I can't get my hands on something from Islay.

A wonderful full body pipe tobacco with no bite!
This is my second, and more serious, foray into pipe smoking. I have been testing OTC blends, and have liked some of them. Dunhill Nightcap is my first walk attempt into a higher end tobacco, and I can understand why Nightcap is liked. Upon opening the tin, the strong Latakia odor (smokey goodness) won me over, and smoking my first bowl sealed the "I love this blend" deal. Full body smoke, burns well and cool. Virtually no "bite", and I tend to smoke hot. I really enjoy this blend, and I have ordered another 3 tins! If you are new to pipe smoking, and are looking for a full flavor tobacco that doesn't bite, try Dunhill Nightcap.

This is a delicious blend of my two favorite tobaccos: latakia and perique to which I was introduced while in my 20s. As you probably know, presently only 16 acres of perique are cultivated ,in my native Louisiana in St. James Parish which is about 140 miles from my home, depending. Nightcap by Dunhill is a delight, excellent for a late afternoon smoke to flavorfully ease you into a pleasant evening.

Yes and No
Not the same amount of Latakia as the old original but still a great English blend with a more fragrant aroma now.

Quality blend, but past its prime.
A high-quality product, very well packaged, but there are just too many better english blends out there for this to be a 5-Star blend. Very hot burning yet, curiously, hard to keep lit. This reminded me of when you are half-way through a sandwich and wind up just picking out the very tasty meat because the bread, cheese, etc. just weren't good enough to justify the calories.

A Unique Blend
I’ve heard so much about this blend that I had to try it. It doesn’t easily fit taste categories; it has a robust flavor that is pleasant and not overwhelming, as many non-aeromatic blends are. Certainly worth trying no matter what your predominant tastes in tobacco are.

Fantastic, but..
This tobacco is worth its praise. Mushroomy, Smokey, spicy, sweet etc. Just a wonderful tobacco, but.. both tins I purchased died very quickly. They became flat, no nicotine punch to speak of, and lost all of its flavor. This could be a freak problem, but seeing as how wonderful the tobacco was, the fall was that much more disappointing--hence the two stars.

Well done
Strong, bold, and smooth. This has become one of my favorite smokes

Dunhill Nightcap
I purchased a Tin of this to try. I really liked it strong but no to strong for a nightcap. It’s been the last thing i smoke each night and some mornings too.
Customer Testimonials
This is THE smoothest tobacco I have ever had the pleasure of smoking. Sure, the tin note smells of old shoe leather (I personally love it) but when you pack a bowl and light it up, you will enjoy a bold and robust flavor that can only be described as a light "cream nut" or something of the like. I was so curious about this blend from YouTube reviews and even a little scared to try it. Keep in mind, I am a greenhorn piper...therefore, my knowledge of tobaccos and pipes is low. However as a former cigarette smoker and a current vaper (mod user), the taste and "robustness" of this blend is rather easy to smoke due to the smooth burn nightcap lends itself to. Despite the name, I really do enjoy smoking a bowl of this after work in the early evening and right before I go to bed. This blend does make me sleepy due to the higher nicotine level than others. If you like or love English blends and haven't tried this one yet, you won't be disappointed!

I am either very picky, or there are a lot of easily amused people. If you want a smoke that will stop Dunhill Nightcap dead in its tracks, mix some Peter Stokkebye Black Latakia (legendary), and Peter Stokkebye English Luxury. Start around 1:4 and move up the scale. MARVELOUS!....and a LOT less expensive. Notice I didn't say cheaper? And if you want to really do it right, first age the PS about 6-8 months. I'll finish this, my first batch of Nightcap, but won't be ordering more.
ML of Palmetto, FL
Very well blend of tobaccos that I enjoy. I will definitely be keeping it in my daily rotation for the evening hours.
JL of West Columbia, SC

KC of East Haven, CT
Dunhill Nightcap satisfies like a full 6 course meal, with a rich decadent chocolate mousse & vintage scotch dram for desert! Strong rich Latakia and accompaniments blend in a spicy smokey olfactory explosion that both relax and excite to make one feel alive and ready for more of life's celebrations, as Dunhill's Nightcap truly is!
DL of Miami, FL
Having heard so much about this tobacco I had to drop two ounces into the cart. I just smoked a bowl of it last night and it has lived up to the hype! Lots of good Latakia smokiness balanced with some perique and Virginias. It's a full bodied smoke that is full of espresso, nut and dark fruit flavours. The room note is wonderful and it was definitely a great way to end my night paired with my favourite IPA.
TS of Birmingham, AL
Stronger than I'm used to, Molto Dolce and Odin's Wind. It took several bowl fulls to start to appreciate the taste and smokability???. I find I am liking it more with every bowl full.
MM of Brownville, NY
I absolutely enjoy this blend.
CC of irving, TX
I'm smoking a bowl of this right now! This is a very nice, creamy tobacco. It's a wonderful smoke any time of day. My favorite!
JC of Hilliard, OH
I bought this as my first real pipe tobacco. I was discourage by a local tobacconist but I absolutely love this tobacco. Go for it!

Does anyone remember the way Dunhill Nightcap used to be, say in the mid 1960's? It's still good now, but I remember it to be more complex and easier on the palate. So now I try to tweak MY Own Blend to try to reconstruct this venerable blend. So far, best results come from a 38% Red Virgina, 25% Latakia, 25% Oriental, 12% Perique. I named it Nightcap REDUX. When the package arrives, I crumble some Escudo flake or Davidoff Flake on top, as I still don't know what the secret ingredient of the original Nightcap was. I am getting closer, and would welcome some hints.
RS of Orleans, MA
Being new to pipes I gave this a try, and while I'm probably stating what is close to sacrilegious, I'm putting this in an airtight mason jar and letting it sit for a while. Way too strong for me right now. I will have to come back to this in a month or two. Yikes!
MS of Houston, TX
Very smooth .. I loved it... although the name implies its a nighttime thing I found it was awesome all day long ...consider new name? Morning,noon and nightcap :)
SK of Fort Wayne, IN
Full flavored, Review says all day Blend? I dont think I would smoke it all day, because the tast would would get old. I also need to smoke it outside, because my wife hates the fragrance. This is a good, even with a new pipe It smokes a little hot but no tounge Bite. Smoking it out of a large bowl and a new pipe, one relite with the new pipe. Really good tast after the relite, no Bite!!! Monday 2/2/2015 just smoke it all day so far. no bite. For me not a all day smoke! Alternating it would not be bad. For me I'll be sitting out back with a Rum and Coke and Nightcap!

I purchased the dunhill night cap thinking it would be good but I was completely wrong first off the smell of the tobacco was god awful it actually made me wrech and the taste was none to good either terrible product not worth it if I had to rate it on a scale of 1-10 it would be a one hands down
SS of El Paso, TX
I love Dunhill Nightcap its one of my favorite tobaccos I have it anytime of day it's perfect for when you need to wind down after a long days work.
KJ of Aiea, HI
The third lat blend I've tried. They're all pretty tasty. This one is tops. The nic hit can remind you of when you first smoked cigars if you're not careful. Smaller bowls, imho, however advocates of big bowls suggest they bring out even MORE flavor. You can forget about the nicotine rather easily due to the tremendous taste, and it is not for the feint of heart.
MW of Ocala, FL
Just finished my first bowl of this blend and am very satisfied. As other have said, it seems to get better as the bowl goes on. Very smooth, very relaxing, very tasty. Not much more to say - this is what I am looking for in a pipe tobacco.
DF of Galveston, TX
I haven't been smoking a pipe for too long so I was a bit hesitant to try a stronger tobacco with Latakia in it. After reading the positive reviews on the P & C web site, I wanted to give it a try. The more I smoke this blend, the more I like it. When I light up a bowl, it seems to get better the further down it burns. I don't have the most discerning pallet, but all I can say is that the flavor is outstanding! I think this is becoming one of my favorite tobaccos as I want to smoke it every evening to relax. If you smoke a big bowl in one sitting, you will feel the nicotine. If you want a strong English blend that will relax you, Nightcap is the one.
CS of Greeley, CO
This is now my all day all night smoke. If I had a wash tub to smoke it out of I would. Not the person to ask to pick out flavors. But if you like latakia this is it. Leaves a nice sweet taste in your mouth. The nicotine is no big deal. But it was the only thing that helped me quit smoking cigarettes. I see it's on back order. I should be telling you all it sucks!!! HAHA
AU of Knoxville, TN
It's listed as full flavored....and by golly it definitely is! This is a great tobacco. Not a full draw kind of smoke in my opinion, but doesn't need to be sipped on either. It has a nice blend of flavors going on all through the bowl with the Virginias, Orientals, and Latakia. sweet (just enough), spicy and smoky all at the same time. I know that this is now at the top of my list for an English blend. I am an aro fan too, but this is a must for me and will always have some on hand.
SS of Monroe, OH
This has a great taste, easy to light, very pleasant smell. Reminds me of a peaked scotch. The only problem I have is personal. I am not used to tobaccos that have a big nicotine punch, so I only smoke a half bowl of this. If you are used to that then there should be no problem. I also spent time aging it with oak pieces for half a year and the taste became much smoother and had a vanilla element added.
DM of Greenville, NC
The Pipes and Cigars description is spot on; a rich, full-bodied smoke perfect for the back porch at the end of the day. I'll always keep this one in stock.
JG of Winter Garden, FL
Back in 2002 when I first started smoking a pipe this was the first blend I tried. Still enjoying it to this day. dont smoke big bowls of this or else it will knock you upside the head with the nicotine. But I reccomend checking it out if you like full blends.
MH of tucson, AZ
This stuff's very good, very simple and bold, yet elusive... the smoke seems to have such a smooth "texture" to it, it burns pretty cool as well. One of my favorite English blends.
BC of Monument, CO
I'll make it short and sweet, Nightcap is the best diversion from the others by far. Great rich blend, and I recommend it highly. Try it.
DG of Lewisville, TX
Rich , long lasting , smooth and relaxing , great in the early mornings or before bed 9/10
DD of Tampa, FL
This is some good stuff! One of my long time favorites. Ive tried the bulk but i only smoke it on special evenings (very smoky and full flavored) so i stick with the tins. Tins can be a little damp (not wet or pg to death) but five min rest before packing seems to be about perfect to dry it right. My old lady cant stand it (Wife repellent), even the smell of it in tin gets her all choked up. I use this to my advantage to keep her outa my shop lol. All in all a great tobacco, brings me right back to wilderness camping in Canada when I was a kid.
AG of Delray Beach, FL
I opened this up and the tin note is a nice smoky smell. I've heard its hit and miss on the moisture level, but mine was dry enough to pack right away. The initial flavor is smoky but has a delicate english spice to it. Semi sweet notes throughout, burned easy and long. I smoked it for an hour and a half. It smoked dry and cool and left a nice ash for an easy clean up. I really liked this blend, it was full bodied and strong. My wife said the room note wasn't as smoky as other English blends I have and that it almost had a sweet smelling aroma. Rotation worthy or sharing with friends. Take it low and slow.
BW of SPRING, TX
Let me begin by saying how I love the fast shipping at P&C. Nightcap is a very stout mixture and the smell hits as soon as the seal is broken on the tin. It seems earthy and smoky at the same time. It serves best after loosening the tobacco in the tin, then putting a little on paper to dry and breathe. After it is allowed to breath and settle down, pack it into the pipe moderately loose. After lighting, the peppery spice of Latika will hit, but not too overly strong. Nightcap is certainly strong, so sip it. It has enough nic to last you the night, but make sure you have a cool drink on hand to rinse the palate, and the flavor will return again and again to the end.
CT of Cache, OK
Was really mislead by many YouTube videos claiming this blend was a knockout, blow your head off, hallucinate kind of blend. Not so much. Very bold yes, smooth and creamy with a decent nicotine level but nothing over the top. A really good blend. I smoke it in a smaller bowl and if I want more I pack it again. I think that's where guys go wrong, by packing huge bowls. Don't be intimidated try some, I did and I like it anytime of the day.
JA of Greendale, WI
An excellent, complex English blend. Full flavored but not overpowering. An excellent afternoon or evening smoke.
