    Starting the day very late with University Flake, in the Pete, and the required strong coffee in large amounts.

    All this talk earlier about SG Sam's Flake was my plan, but it must be buried in the cellar. I couldn't find it. So I settled for some SG Navy Flake in my Hardcastle.
    (McCormick approves) lol

    I think this is my third bowl of the current incarnation of Dunhill's Nightcap since I opened the tin a few weeks ago. So far, it's the most impressive smoke I've had from it. I'm nearing the end of the bowl now, and I think the problem was me, not the tobacco. I expected it to be a super full, super rich latakia bomb, or I expected a sweet VA base to it like most English style blends.

    This is perfectly balanced with virtually no sweetness. There is a hint of sweetness from the VA and orienals, but very little. The perique is mostly in the background, and it's not a latakia dump. I think the thing with this blend is it's complexity. It's not an everyday kind of blend for me, it's a bit of a pensive smoke. In my opinion it is pretty nice, but a little more complex than I generally prefer for a tobacco that's this dry (as opposed to sweet, not a lack of moisture). The really attractive part of this smoke, in my opinion, is it's high nicotine content. It's nice to find a well rounded, full bodied latakia mixture with some backbone. It won't slap you around like a rope tobacco or Irish Flake or anything, but it's definitely not lacking in nicotine by my standards.

    Glad I smoked it, excited to see how my opinion of it changes as I work through the tin :)
