This blend is no exception, and it is Dunhill's answer for the discriminating pipe smoker who wants a blend that he or she can just kick back and enjoy in those rare moments when life, family, and career are not imposing their demands upon us... A week before, I had killed 10 Charlie in one night. And now I had leave, who could ask for anything more? I dressed, and left the room, but not before leaving her my picture so that the kid would one day know who his or her father was.those early mornings when it is just us, our cup of coffee, the morning paper, and peace and quiet. I stopped in at a bar in the East Side of Saigon called Do Phing Pan Ngo, where all the action was. Different guys trying to sweep some exotic doll off of her feet and into the bed. I walked to the bar and ordered myself a tall one, ready to relax and find a target. She walked in lookin like something out of a dream. Just before I did, some officer cut in front of me. And with that I left, returning to base and eventually leaving ' Nam, never to return.I haven't finished that tin yet but I smoked enough of this to re-familiarize myself with it.My original review stands, as I find this too limp-wristed for me.It's a little sweeter than some of the other Dunhill English blends, which I find nice for a change from the heavier mixtures.The Cyprian latakia is smoky with wood and sweet notes, but is a little subdued.Sweet Oriental carefully blended with bright and red Virginias, pressed and lightly stoved.Great as the "first pipe" arousing the palate for the further pleasures of the day.
(What C&D and Pease blends want to be when they grow up). I had been given some leave time from my base in Saigon and so I went to explore the City, like usual, my buddies didnt get leave, but I hoped to find some more GI's in some of the local bars. I felt good, like it was going to be a swell day; I had every reason to think so. I knew this would be my only chance to get laid until i was sent back into the jungles to fight charlie. The beautiful woman was still asleep after having the night of her life.But don't be put off my the "morning" conotation to it, because it is enjoyable thought the rest of the day as well - when all you want is just a nice bowl of tobacco to enjoy on your smoke break, lunch hour, or just doing nothing but enjoying a pipe. So gorgeous, she was with her sexy Vietnamese hips and supple behind. Early Morning Pipe felt like that special morning in Saigon.This tobacco was good so good, that it reminded me of a time long ago.... As others noted - and as the name implies - this is an aptly named tobacco.I looked up the date that it was first introduced to the market, and near as I can tell it was first introducted in 1912. I think that it's been so popular for so long because of its simplicity. There may or may not be some Latakia in there, but if it is it is only in trace amounts.Ever wonder how a blend remains a top seller for over 100 years? The color is a pleasing blend of brown and tan tobaccos, and the tin note has a nice Oriental sweetness to it.
