I sure wouldn't mind being around someone who was smoking it, though! I haven't a clue as to why people that are new to pipe smoking are always told to start with an aromatic.
Dunhill latakia blends have a certain pungent tin note that Orlik has maintained, but this one is all aroma, little flavor IMHO. It seems to be more of a medium blend, but harsher than most other Dunhill? There is nice complexiy from the condiments, but the sharp edge keeps me from enjoying it. I've tried and smoked at least a 1/2 a dozen aromatics and always found them lacking something.
I looked up the date that it was first introduced to the market, and near as I can tell it was first introducted in 1912. I think that it's been so popular for so long because of its simplicity. There may or may not be some Latakia in there, but if it is it is only in trace amounts.
Ever wonder how a blend remains a top seller for over 100 years? The color is a pleasing blend of brown and tan tobaccos, and the tin note has a nice Oriental sweetness to it.
It can be an occasional through the day smoke, but not really an all day one, though I have been known to have done that.Sweet Oriental carefully blended with bright and red Virginias, pressed and lightly stoved.Great as the "first pipe" arousing the palate for the further pleasures of the day.Seems to me it's better to judge it for what it is, rather than criticize it for what it's not intended to be. Needs few relights, leaves little moisture in the bowl, and won't bite. But the difference is not night and day, and you'll enjoy this one if you like English blends.Update 2/17/14 Chanced into this from someone that was curious about how I felt H&H Daybreak compared to this.
