This is the last bit I've got. It's been great and I really enjoy it. It was different at first, unlike anything I had smoked and I wasn't sure I liked it at first being used to carter hall and a couple aromatics. So, keep in mind that this is coming from someone who only really has experience with carter hall mainly. I can say that it is strong, definite nicotine kick. Not so strong that I got a buzz, not like smoking a marlboro red after not smoking a cigarette for a week for example...but a good bit, enough to really relax you. Very pleasant. Coming off of cigarettes I am used to inhaling and find myself doing it on occasion, with nightcap I made a conscience effort not to inhale. Plenty of aromas that I was unfamiliar with but found them very pleasant. My wife, who really loves the aromatics really enjoyed the scent also. I believe this is a mixture of virginia, latakia and perique. My first tobacco with latakia and perique, let alone both together. The tastes are a lot stronger also, much stronger than carter hall. They took a while to get used to but they are also very pleasant. I did, upon my very first taste I swear I tasted...soap. It faded the more I smoked that was just a bit of a shock. I can't really say which of the tobaccos was strongest since I am not familiar enough with them to be able to tell which one(s) I was tasting. It's hard for me to accurately describe what I tasted seeing as how inexperienced I am with tobaccos in general. I can only say that the tastes took a while to get used to but after maybe the third bowl I began to acquire the taste for it. There is a slight sweetness that I can't put my finger on...just, it seemed like a really nice, smooth, harmonious aroma and taste, a bit creamy at times. I also discovered that my method for smoking needed to be changed as well. When I smoke carter hall, I smoke pretty quick. Not super fast but fairly quick. Nightcap, for me, should not be smoked this way. It seems meant to be slowly and calmly smoked. Now having sat here and typed this up while laying in bed I can say that I am drowsy. I feel relaxed, calm and mellow. To many this "review" may not mean a lot, so I guess this is targeted really to the beginner pipe smoker who may be interested in trying nightcap. I haven't been smoking pipes all that long and can speak as a beginner myself, this is definitely worth a try. I will be purchasing it again. I will not use this as an all day smoke. I can see why they call it nightcap. You can think of this as an evening treat, or as the name perfectly suggests...a nightcap.
