    Gawd damn it. I finally popped open Dunhills Nightcap and after few puffs a pounding headache started. Next day I gave it another try and same thing. This is annoying as hell since I kinda like that strong taste. Question is, can your body get used to it if I just keep smoking through headache?

    You are probably getting wacked by the nicotine. Do other "strong" blends do this to you?

    Eventually most people seem to get used to it. I never did, can't smoke most Dunhill blends because of it. You can find the taste without the nicotine hammer elsewhere.

    It does have a high nic content. Maybe back off your cadence and smoke partial bowls for awhile & see what happens.
    Also on high nic tobacco's I make sure I smoke them on a full stomach.

    What CoreyR said. Eat something first probably heavy in carbs and take it easy. The Perique in that blend is strong. Oh how I love it though!
     
    Summit and WrightwoodJohn like this.

    I built up my nic resistance by snuffing. I would almost puke when i smoked kentucky burley. Now i can smoke those heavy blends with no issues.

    Nightcap gives me hiccups unless I sip it very slowly.

    The problem is the perique.

    Fourth time was a charm. I noticed on my third bowl the headache started after few puffs but towards the end of the bowl it started lift. On fourth bowl I had no issues. I find it more pleasurable smoking before than after dinner/lunch.

    It took me a bit too. Of course the scotch may have been acontributing factor....:puke:
