    Hi there,

    Thinking of buying some pipe tobacco for the first time since moving to Canada from England in 2016. Buying at a Canadian B&M is out of the question as I refuse to pay CAD$70 for something I used to pay GBP8 for 10 years ago.

    Gonna make a 4noggins order and looking for recommendations based on my old favourites:
    1)Dunhill MyMix 965
    2)Dunhill Nightcap
    3)SG Squadron Leader

    Any other good blends that people enjoy from 4noggins also appreciated!

    Thank you

    Hi
    for Nightcap, try Ashton Artisan's Blend. Peter Stokkebye Proper English No. 52 also is quite close in my opinion. Just a tad drier smoke than the other two.
    For similar nicotin hit to Nightcap I also tend to go with Cornell & Diehl Bow Legged Bear

    Can't really offer any sub for the other two you mentioned.
    Cheers

    I'd say don't shy away from 4Noggins bulks. Here's an idea,

    2nd vote for Westminster for 965 lovers.

    If you like the 965 prior to the STG version the Sutliff 965 Match (now Match 20) will be the closest. Greg Pease created Westminster as a homage to London Mixture which, is my favorite Dunhill (Murray's or STG). My tastes don't find it close to 965 because it lacks the cavendish component and is definitely more Oriental forward. I enjoy Westminster but, also, don't find that it exactly hits London Mixture either.

    Night Cap is difficult to match. The Sutliff match is good but, not quite there. I usually head to SPC Plum Pudding Reserve when I have the Night Cap urge.

    I have to +1 derhammer on PS#52 being a great smoke (actually smoking it now). I am not so sure about it being Dunhill-like.

    I just wish you luck on SL. It is a quintessentially unique English.

    4Noggins is the blender for John Patton. There are some excellent burley blends. Among my favorites are Storm Front, Moe’s Confetti and Crossroads. Bald Headed Teacher is also excellent and can be found under the 4noggins bulk blends.

    Welcome from Colorado.

    For MM965 try Beck's Ol' Limey Bastard
