    Since I've embraced my inner codger, I've come to really appreciate well-behaved and conservative smokes - be they tinned, bulk, or OTC's. Dunhill 965 is one of the all-time classics. There is nothing exotic about it that sends me rocketting into the stratosphere, but the superb quality of the blend just knocks my socks off. It's just a very well-done smoke, and the fact it's been around damn near since Moby Dick was a guppy is a testiment to the briliance of this blend.

    Yep. It's a must try in my book, the baseline English.

    I just ordered a tin of London Mixture...I was on the fence between that, and 965...I got some Squadron Leader and Sutcliff R-Blend commin too...so my next big order will most assuredly feature a tin of 965...I have very high hopes for the Dunhill tins, and I dont expect to be disappointed, judging from all the hype...

    Excellent description. If you wanted a yardstick with which to judge any "English" blend, this would be an excellent candidate.

    If you like EMP or Nightcap, then you are sure to enjoy 965. Definitely a solid mix...

    Dunhill blends are as old school as old school gets. C&D and Pease both offer great blends, but near as I can tell they're both chasing Dunhill and trying to catch up. The more I smoke Dunhill blends, the more they impress me with their understated elegance and sophistication. Hell, they're just classy smokes, and I'm hard-pressed to see how anybody could have a bad word to say about the line as a whole. I think 965 is their flagship blend.

    OK, I do have something bad to say - how could you guys at Dunhill drop your best blend, Elizabethan Mixture, from your line-up?
