    I mostley smoke "English blends", Dunhill when I could get it ( managed to get thru the "dry").
    Here's my question: I was recently given a tin of Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls. I have used only the EMP, Nightcap and London mixtures. Do I rub this out or just break a couple of pieces off and put it in my trusty Savinelli 626? It smells OUTSTANDING! I don't want to waste it!
    Thanks,
    Steiny

    Rub it out if that's the cut you're used to, but try it folded and stuffed very loosely with a little shake on top to get it going as well. I'm sure you won't be disappointed, and that it won't go to waste!

    Rub it out, let it air for 30 minutes, and load it like you usually do. My advice, don't experiment with fold and stuff yet. Its too easy to mess it up.

    This is good advice. The fold and stuff method yields decent results, some of the time, but its easy to mess up, and can put one off a certain tobacco. Fold it long ways, and half ways, and again...until you have a nice little folded ball. Then, place it between your palms and rub it out. You'll get a nice, soft tobacco that will smoke like a champ...

    Just don't rub the heck out of it ! 3 or 4 twists in the palms and that should be plenty .

    I too apologize to the OP(Steiny). My immaturity and an easy opportunity to pick on the Mayor a little was more than I could stand. I will now go sit in the corner and behave.....

    If you rub it more than twice, you are playing with it.

    I tried the De Lux Navy Rolls. Can't say excellent, but VERY good. I rubbed out two coins, packed and folded one coin on top...good very good, milder than my stand-by (NightCap)...best taste was top third, then half way down. after that, it was o.k. but kind of flat. Nicotene...good, but I can't say I'd save money to get more. Bear in mind I like a heavy smoke, plus I've only smoked one bowl. We shall see!

    I smoke DNR on a regular basis and have found the cube cut method works best for me. Rubbing it out in my opinion defeats the purpose of smoking a flake and fold and stuff can be inconsistent. I take a couple of coins and just cut it into decent sized cubes, use a three step packing method making sure I have some good resistance and then fire it up. it is a very tasty blend. I also use either a group 4 or 5 sized pipe mostly Dublins, Apples, Billiards and Lovats.
