While Nightcap is my favorite, I had always smoked it at night. I think today was the first time, I smoked this during the day!

Last two weeks in work has been crazy, and next two to three weeks will also be equally crazy. I am a little relaxed today, before getting into the grind once again.
It is as truly sublime experience today - the weather, my mood, the pipe, the amount I packed, and Nightcap all aligned for a glorious smoke.
Pipe: Van Roy Magic Cake from late 40's / early 50's - Un-smoked when I purchased it.

Tobacco: Nightcap from Nov-2012 (Four and half years of age)

I wish I liked it. On paper it has everything I love. In the pipe it just doesn't work for me. One day I hope the stars align and I get that glorious bowl.

I'm with Joseph on this. Generally, I love Dunhill tobaccos. They just tick all my boxes. However, Nightcap (and Elizabethan Mix) just don't work for me. Strange.

I am so sorry to hear that @joseph and @mike. Maybe some day it will work for you!

I was really surprised how easy this smokes at any time of the day when I first tried this. After all the talking about how strong it is I was suspecting that this would knock me out. It had become one of my favorites. Too bad that it will soon go away.

I think Nightcap is best enjoyed in the morning.....or noon.......or afternoon.....or evening.......or midnight.
P.S. I'm happy you had a sublime bowl.

I went a few months without Nightcap, and it nearly drove me mad. Mad, I tell you.
