Dunhill Early Morning Pipe Tobacco Review

Dunhill Early Morning PipeThere are some people who are swayed by the way a tobacco is presented and while the tin doesn’t overly impress me on most occasions I do have to say that this tobacco comes in a very attractive tin and it contains a very passable tobacco that’s a pleasant blend of Virginia and Oriental that should appeal to anyone who enjoys a good English such as Penzance or Pirate Kake.

The tobacco isn’t carrying a lot of moisture in the tin and you can pack it, light it and it will stay lit right out of the tin. Straight from the tin it will burn evenly and the smoke you get at the end of your pipe is definitely cool.
While I’m on my first tin and not likely to put it aside until it’s finished I have heard from other smokers that smoking around half of the tin and then letting the remainder mature for a few months does no harm to it at all.
If you’re like me though, and you don’t want to let the contents of your tobacco tin mature then you will find that this is a very mild smoke and probably just right for that first pipe in the morning. I’m not sure that it’s going to be appreciated by non-smokers in the room for it does have a typical English aroma that can be less than pleasant for some.
I must say that I’m never one to stick too closely to what some might suggest is the best time to smoke a tobacco and this is certainly one that shouldn’t be restricted to that first pipe of the day. I’ve smoked it throughout the day and it certainly fits in well just about any time you want to sit down with a good coffee.

  • I understand that Dunhill blends are no longer being marketed to the U.S. Is this correct? If so, it is temporary?

    • Where did you hear that eddiegrob? I can see them available for sale on at least a couple American websites right now, so it seems they are here.

  • Good to hear, but I read some recent posts in pipes.org discussing a marketing cutback by Dunhill tobacco to exclude exportation to the U.S. I’ll look it up and provide with a link. (Either that, or it’s just that I’m insane old man.) The usual whine was that they couldn’t get Nightcap anymore, but another post mentioned that other Dunhill blends were also included in this “drought.” Apparently U.S. sellers were just selling their stock. That’s why I asked whether this was correct, as Dunhill appears to have some popular blends in the market, as I’ve never smoked any Dunhill blend. It could also just be a marketing ploy by some local sellers. Of course that doesn’t mean that I’m not a crazy old man. 🙂

    • I saw the thread. I see Dunhill all over the place. I know Early Morning Pipe is discontinued, but I haven’t heard that everything is. I am going to Edwards Pipe & Tobacco in Tampa today. They will know the real answer.

  • The correct name of the thread is “Dunhill tobacco: Where did it all go?” One of the posters summed up the issue with the following line:
    “Short version: A number of blends discontinued (3 Year Matured, Aperitif, Elizabethan, etc.) and others are not being regularly imported any more due to unknown distribution issues. Some tins can still be found here and there, but the supply is irregular.
    Also search the forums, as this topic comes up a lot.

  • Edwards and any other such important pipe tobacco outlet are probably more abreast of that issue than the internet reports I quoted above. I also found several reference to the discontinued Dunhills at Puff.com.

    • In brief, the former importer of Dunhill tobaccos was sold to another company and the license to import and sell Dunhill tobaccos was lost in the process. Dunhill tobacco is still being produced, but they presently do not have a US Importer. I can provide a few more details after I get my interview with Gordon Smith of Edwards Pipe & Tobacco transcribed in the next day or so.
