The real stuff? Well at least it was made in England.

I just noticed that Cuppa is stocking the McConnell clones of Dunhill.

The one that's supposed to be similar to Royal Yacht is called Paddington. :yawn:

I've never tried RY.

Have I been banned?

I originally (many years ago) disliked RY, but recently discovered that I like it now.

Unfortunately, it is now unavailable.

I love RY at first, but I frequently lost my taste for it about half way through the bowl. I think I've only bought a tin or two of it over the years because of that.

Truth be told, back then I was probably smoking it too hot or making some other technique error. Maybe I should try it again.
That's how I feel about aromatics. They're sold as beginners tobaccos and taste like an ashtray to the n00B. Years later they taste like dessert liqueur and we love them.

But to be fair, lot of people haaaa-aaate Captain Black.
I love dessert liqueurs. Heh, sorry, I just had to say that.

I have an ancient tin of RY around here somewhere. Now I need to find it.
That was a stra ge slip on my part. I meant to say some people really hate Royal Yacht. Wonder where the CAPT Black came from?
Captain Black is the commander of the Royal Yacht. A natural mistake.
