Dunhill My Mixture 965

Post by anixi » Sun Nov 20, 2005 11:25 pm

Strong, not bitey, but high in nicotine. Gave me a real jolt on the palate, something I could get used to. Don't drive after you consume this stuff!

I like the smoke, thick and dark, burns very well once you get it started. Almost white ash, light gray.

This is my favorite English, although I haven't had that many.

If you think this is high in nicotine, don't try Nightcap.. or University Flake, for that matter. .. thought I usually took UF two flakes at a time. 8O

Outside of that, 965 has got to be my favorite blend. It's the one tobacco I constantly have on hand. Great stuff.

965 is a good blend, no doubt - I think i like Nightcap or Bosi #4 better, however. If you like the former, you'll dig the latter!

Trying my first bowl of 965 (bulk) right now. Just finished a tin of Frog Morton on the Bayou and there is a spiciness common to the two of them. Both are the only two I've tried with both Balkan and Latakia so I wonder which is the source. I definately like it.

So far, I think I like FMOTB better, but give me a couple of bowls...

This isn't bad, it's local, and I can get it in bulk relatively inexpensively so I think it may become a regular for me.

Joekm,

Have you tried Frog Morton Across The Pond? I'm still trying to figure it out! ;)

Joekm,

Looks like PnP has a lot more experience with FMATP than I. I would trust him and get some. I'm still futzing around with it, and since I'm in the middle of a move, don't get much time to smoke... :cry:

i love 965...smooth, not too much flavour, and nice nic content. Smoke is great and burn is nice and even for me. 4 stars!!!

Actually proving to be a wee bit strong for my taste, may have to cut it with some straight VA.

#965 is one of my favorites. Up there with Squadron Leader, FMOTB, 7 Reserve, Red Rapparee, Abingdon, and oh, heck, I just really LIKE English mixtures. Can you tell?

i bet JonathanHarker can't taste it, either.. then again, he reputedly smokes 5oz. of the stuff per week..

965

Post by parson » Sun Apr 30, 2006 9:13 am

965 was my first exposure to an English. I kept waiting for apocalyptic visions or at least heart palpitations. . .nothing. Loved the flavor and still resort to it pretty frequently. I don't find Nightcap too strong either. The only tobacco I've ever found that is noticeably powerful is Stonehaven. That stuff should only be smoked in a small bowl, after a full meal, and very slowly.

i just opened a tin of Nightcap this weekend, and i think my tolerance has upped a bit.. either that, or it could be the difference between smoking one bowl outside in the Spring versus smoking a half dozen in a small room in the Winter..

Alright, yesterday I picked up some bulk of 965. I have been very intrigued by this backy ever since I read the reviews here. Last Friday, when I was at the local tobacconist, I opened the jar of 965 they had with the other bulks. The scent was strong yet tantalizing to me. I used to smoke maduro cigars and loved the spicey aspect of other heavy cigars. I thought this would be a good backy for me to at least try. Well, last night I finally had my first bowl. I smoked it slow, and really took the time to enjoy it (even though I was in the garage). It was a good smoke that had the kick that I was... well lacking with other backys. It was spicy and stout, but in a good way (if that makes since). I think this is going to be one of my go to backys. I may have to buy a tin or two to cellar!
Gitty Up!

Nightcap turned me green, inverted my tummy and made the room spin. Horrid stuff, that.

Ha. Too bad you weren't lurking when I was trying to offload my Nightcap like the nicotine-laden child of evil that it is. 8)
