Dunhill Ye Olde Sign

Postby ratatosk » Wed Jan 11, 2017 1:07 am

No poetry here, just my suggestion that you give this a shot if you like loose cut, dark Virginia. I bought 6 tins when it was re-released, 1 to smoke and the rest to add to my collection of 5 tin Dunhill sleeves. It really hit the spot for me even without any jarring, etc., so I ordered another 15 tins.

I've found that contemporary Dunhill blends are shipped too young and need some time to become really good, but this is an exception. Very nice fresh, probably ultra nice in a year or two.
If even I don't know how many pipes I own, how the hell would you know if I have too many?

Thanks for the tip, Richard. I'm a big fan of dark Virginia, so I'll try and get hold of some and give it a try :)

Thanks from me, too, Richard. Sounds a good tobacco. I have noticed it here on a forum, with favorable responses. Appreciate the recommendation. I'll have a look out for it.

Shame it's not available in the UK yet as I would like to try it .

I found it similar to Royal Yacht, but a little lighter on the topping, whatever that is.

I like it.

Thanks for the recommendation, Richard.

I find I am increasingly enjoying virginias at this stage, so I'll be sure to get in a couple of tins to try.
