    ..and it was accompanied with a glass of cabernet. Now I'm no snob the same could have been accomplished by a cold glass of beer or some Jameson's....but it was one of those perfect pipe loads you guys talk about. The EMP was rich in flavor but light at the same time. I also have some Dunhill Nightcap which seems pretty strong for me (being new to pipe smoking). Question becomes should I blend a little of the NC with the EMP, or try a half bowl of NC to work up to it?
    PS: I'm a little sad when the bowl is finished..

    Never tried mixing the two, I guess it couldn't hurt to try that though. EMP and NC are both excellent blends.

    Try a half bowl...Enjoy it for what is. Both are great smokes.

    The EMP was my 1st venture into Latakia. I also like the Nightcap. If the Nightcap is a bit to strong why not try a mix? Can not hurt? Beale.

    Hello, Wrightwoodjohn!
    Great that you enjoy Dunhill EMP!
    Although my all-time-fav Dunhill is their MM965, EMP is a superb Blend!
    The only thing I could never get is the correct wine to accompany it. I love Cabernet Sauvignon but it always seemed to clash with EMP but MM965 went with it like a well composed Symphony. Cold beer was always my choice for EMP... never mind... different strokes for different folks:)!
    Enjoy!

    Nice responses. Thinking about trying 965 & Royal Yacht sometime... Think I'll blend a little NC with the EMP, then graduate over to a half bowl of pure NC. I'm blown away by the varieties of tabac out there.

    I'm gonna' revisit EMP after reading this...I've smoked probably 4 or 5 bowls of it & just never understood the appeal (it's an awful lot like Presbyterian mixture to me) but you're the second guy on here to post about having a "perfect pipe" with it, so I'm gonna' run with the assumption that I've been doing it wrong up till now!

    I'm still new, but some of my research was obtained from some U-tube videos (reviews of Dunhill). There is a wealth of information out there on the web...tobacco reviews & other sites.

    It's good to feel like "The King" for one day.

    Be well.

    If you want to move up to the stronger Night Cap (not that you have to), may I suggest going through Royal Yacht first?
    I am a Dunhill whore, but dont care for either Morning Pipe or London Mixture...

    I'm already enjoying nightcap full strength (with my filter pipe)... great tabac, nutty & surprisingly smooth & mild.
