    I did the same thing years ago. I enjoy it now, but when i was just starting out i burned it so hot it was harsh and bit like a rattlesnake. :D

    Slow and low...that is the tempo. :cool:

    Dunhill is my favorite "high end" blender, and EMP is a wonderful blend. Great review.

    All the Dunhill blends are classic ! I have yet to try the newer version of Standard Mixture Medium . But back in the day it was my favorite English style tobacco ! It's good yer enjoying EMP ....... Enjoy !

    I have a tin of EMP that I smoked one bowl of about six months ago, hated, and forgot about. This review made me revisit it this morning and let me just say, what a difference six months makes!

    It was smooth, light, clean tasting, lit and burned like a dream. The only downside is going to be when my girlfriend gets home from work and smells that I've been smoking an English blend upstairs (I'm relegated to the basement). For the record, totally worth it.

    I should do the same. I wasn't enjoying it at first and just chalked it up to not getting much out of Latakia lately. I'm due for a revisit, especially given the winter weather.

    Especially in a state where you can cook a meal on a BBQ sans gas ;)

    How hot is it in Brissie today?

    Hot my friend. We were out in the car before lunch and it said 33 degrees. It's probably not quite that hot, but it's very humid. The breeze has just come up, so it'll cool off soon ...

    I should add that's about 92 in the old money ... For our non-metric counterparts.

    Same here, it hit 35c/95f at 1300 and the humidity, while not Brisbane bad, is still awful. Friday was the worst, it hit 38.3C/100F.

    Argh! I think we're looking at 35 and thunderstorms for Christmas Day. Actually I should probably look that up ...

    Nope, looking good. 30 for Christmas. Looks like we're getting your 35 degree day on Sunday. With 80% humidity. Now that's going to suck.

    I am working on an open tin of EMP and do like it, but I also tried the McClelland match a.m. pipe, a bulk blend, and I prefer it over EMP. I seem to like the hint of latakia that comes through in the a.m. pipe blend, and it is much cheaper. I am a fan of McC blends so keep that in mind, but you may want to give it a try.

    If you enjoy the EMP (and you should - it's a good blend) then you ought to try Rattray's Red Rapparee as well

    you wont go wrong with every one of those 965 is one of my fav eng blends. but the navy rolls taste exactly like escudo to me. i seriously think they are the same tobaccos just tinned differently.

    EMP was also my first tinned pipe tobacco and at first the hard turkish smell scared me but after a few days i got the balls to just dive in and man was i shocked at how sweet and mellow it was; i knew i made a good choice moving to the pipe
