At the end of a long day, there is nothing better than sitting down and smoking a full flavored blend to melt away the stress of the day. For this occasion, we strongly suggest smoking Nightcap from Peterson. This blend was designed for smoking at the end of a long day and has been blended with Latakia, Perique, and Virginia is a very heavy and oily manner. We suggest smoking this full flavored blend with a stiff drink in the hand.

One of my all-time favs. It's one of those legendary tobaccos. So much written about it. Can't add anything I guess.
Not the same blend as Dunhill's Nightcap- burns faster, flavor not the same as original, probably because Cyprian Latakia is used instead of Syrian Latakia. Still good, though- as close as anyone comes to the original blend. Glad we have it, remains a fave.
Excellent flavor and balanced blend. This will be in my rotation as an evening relaxing bowl.
I thought I would try Nightcap since it is supposed to be a strong blend. I opened the tin and took a whiff. I could smell the Latakia. I noted it seemed like it could stand a little drying out time. It let it sit for about 15 minutes, then packed a bowl. My first puff I tasted the Latakia, intermixed with some Perique. Nice. After a while, I kept waiting for the slap in the face from what is supposed to be a strong tobacco. Not there, in my opinion. Strength I would rate it at a 3.5. I did not get a nicotine rush. Oh, well, still not a bad blend. However, I don’t think I will be ordering any more Nightcap. It’s an “okay” tobacco that left me wanting more kick in the face.
Perfect in the evenings.
An old fave- not exactly the same blend as the original Dunhill Nightcap, but as close as one can find. Great for the bloke who appreciates a bowl of strong now and then, the right amount of Latakia and Perique. I'm glad Peterson salvaged this blend, it's an old pal. Try it, you'll like it.
Peterson's has come as close to the original blend as possible. I'm glad they kept this classic tobacco alive, it's been an age-old fave with many pipe smokers. It's strong enough, has excellent flavor and is grand any time of year, day or night. Right kiss of Perique, too!
As a smoker who started in the seventies with Tinder Box English blends like, Philosopher, and Connoisseur, I was looking for an easier to acquire a replacement. This blend satisfies that need. A cool full-bodied English that has a great taste and aroma. Great price and prompt shipping from tobacco pipes.com.
All-time great English blend. No sense wasting too many words. All I have to say is, get it!
