    Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls in my Meer-lined Dr. Plumb billiard. First time out with this tobacco and first impressions are excellent...opened the tin, rubbed out a roll, 3-stage filled it and lit up with no probs.

    Nice mellow VaPer with none of the odd aftertaste that Scottish Cake has.

    I love how classy Dunhill tobaccos are. Just a great smoke.

    furious-- did you buy the Edgeworth recently? Haven't seen it in a while...
  • Sure did. Scored an old sealed 1.5 ounce tin from that auction site. Flakes were quite dry as one would expect after 55 years or so but smoked beautifully. Sweet molasses and nutty notes and cool all the way down to the heel.

    Nice! I've actually never had it- was on my to try list, then it seemed to disappear from the market. Isn't it a burley based blend(if I remember right)? I did kind of like thier ready-rubbed, but that's kind of different huh?

    Earlier I was really enjoying some SG Westmorland Mixture in my Pete Shamrock 86S, currently lapping up some Commonwealth Mixture in my '49 Pete System Standard 314.

    It's raining and cold...to quote @pieterclaassen, "it's Latakia weather"!
  • @Mr. O Yes, it's a burley blend with a good dose of dark Kentucky and what I think is a casing of molasses. It's really great stuff either sliced or ready rubbed, but I'd give a slight edge to the former as it has more concentrated flavor and so smooth.

    Do most of you Peterson people prefer the fishtail? That's how I have my 2 Peterson's, it seems like the P-lip can fry the roof of your mouth a bit.
  • @
    Mr. O

    Depend on what is in the pipe. I puff like a locomotive with some tobacco. others I sip so yes the P lip thing just makes a difference but so does the shape of the bowl narrow, wide ,deep. They all play a role on the flavor and heat of the smoke.Packing and tamping also makes a world of difference. I personally prefer the fishtail,they also are easier to run the brush threw.

    @Mr.O , I was of the same mind until I smoked some straight Virginia tobacco in one. The P-lip seemed to make it easier to draw with less force keeping the hot burning tobacco a little cooler. I also noticed the roof of the mouth and the tongue having different types of sensitivity and for this particular ph of tobacco my roof is less sensitive. I only have the one P-lip and will be dedicating it to straight VA's. I'm not sure if I would get another though.
  • Mr_OMr_O Member
    I have an old Peterson knock off with a p-lipesque bit, and it seemed to wreck the roof of my mouth a bit. On the other hand it was used for burleys and some slighly-sweet aromatics, so that may have something to do with it- but I don't usually go for extra sugary blends which tend to burn pretty hot. Suppose I should try a p-lip with some heavy English like I usually smoke.

    I've had the same problem with p-lips and the roof of my mouth, ditto for clays with their narrow fast smoke stream--end up with a spot of swelling, not pleasant. I also find the lumpy bit uncomfortable. Probably the way I smoke, but I prefer fishtails.
  • Mr_OMr_O Member
    Yeah, at least I have a decent number of pipes that work nicely. Does anyone else like Kaywoodies? Someone got me started on them, and - perhaps a little surprisingly the "drinkless system" doesn't bother me at all. Also I've been informed that the briar is first x-rayed before it becomes a pipe, so you know the pipe has no hidden sediment etc beneath the surface.

  • Dorchester in a Pete 80s.......this is good stuff but I think Dunbar is nicer.
  • @ PieterClassen, Dorchester is less pronounce then the Dunbar like a Macintosh to a Winesap /apple to apples or VaPer to VaPer. it probably that extra Virginia that make the difference. Still a top notch tobacco at a value price. Just got a large assortments of Esoterica ,and I am working my way threw them. All tasty so far! In the pipe now And so to bed in a Pete 999.

  • @basement_shaman, I'm actually liking the Dorchester more and more the more I smoke it!!  Easy to light and keep going, nice, rich and sweet "tongue taste" all the way down to the bottom.  I've received this tobacco by accident (should have been Dunbar) but I'm going to order some more.  Very good value for money, indeed.

    Smoking a bowl of Dorchester right now in a Stanwell canadian.
