Good evening all. I'm almost finished with my tin of Nightcap and can not find anymore anywhere, was wondering if anyone knows of a good source or a good substitute.

I've been looking for it also. It's the only Dunhill I don't have cellared.

I've found P&C's Nightcap Match to be a tolerable substitute. At 72, my taste buds aren't so sensitive that I can discern a great amount of difference; although I'm sure there are some. I have several older tins in the cellar; I rerally need to pull that stuff out and count it! cheers FTRPLT

The P&C Night Match is made by Sutliff. Here's my review of it:

The original and the Match have the same grassy, citrusy Virginia in equal amount, thus having the same effect. That is also true of the Oriental/Turkish and the perique. The former is leathery, musty, dry and woody and just rises above being a condiment. The spicy, plumy perique is a background player. In looking at both tobaccos, I can not tell one from the other. The only difference I notice is that the latakia in the original is a little stronger in taste in all ways: Cyprian sweetness, smokiness and wood. At times during a smoke, the Match seemed nearly identical to the original, and other times not so much. The depth of the attributes of the latakia - not the amount of latakia - is the only variable. Stirring up the tobacco in the Match produced better results for me, but did not completely solve the problem. The strength level of this blend is almost medium. Has a mild nic-hit, and won't bite or get harsh. Both burn clean and cool at a moderate pace with a consistent flavor. Leaves little moisture in the bowl, and needs an average number of relights. Has a pleasant, smoky after taste, and stronger room note. Not quite an all day smoke, though it is certainly repeatable.

I have not tried but ran across these two reading Tobacco Reviews that maybe other members have tried and report their experience.

I put all my tobacco in jars except for the extra tins I cellar. Some jars I put into current use, other jars I put away. Smile

All I've had was a tin transferred, about a year, to a mason jar, and now it's almost gone. Funny think is that when I first opened the tin back then I though "ugh that stinks" so I put it in the jar and it sat almost a year. When I opened it again I loved it!

I always enjoyed Bill Bailey's Balkan Blend, enough to buy a 500g bag of it. Rich and spicy with perique and some Dark fired Kentucky for strength.

Perhaps GLP Quiet Nights?
