The Royal Yacht Mixture from the Peterson company is the tobacco world's epitome of a pure and full flavored Virginia blend. Made from a combination of sweet, heavy, and cool Virginia leaf, this blend enters the palate and assaults it with an almost overwhelming flavor. Blended for those who know how to enjoy tobacco on a higher level, this Dunhill blend is one for the record books.

I've been smoking this tobacco on and off for 30 years.
It’s a great pipe tobacco but there’s better for a better price. I’d give it another star if it dropped a buck and a half or 2. 4 1/2 stars for now.
It is a solid go-to good smoking, fairly mild flavored tobacco.
Perfect smoke. Blend with aromatic and pack on top And also just as is for a strong but mellow taste.
I found this to be a little strong but enjoyed it. The taste seems to creep back on you the next day as a reminder to light up another bowl. I also found it to be a very sweet and slightly spicy blend. It is in my normal rotation now and is a close second favorite to Peterson's EMP.
Been smoking pipes since the late 60's. I have tried too many blends than I can remember, most are forgotten. A tobacco like Royal Yacht will not be forgotten, excellent tobacco, IMO. I prefer Royal Yacht a little dryer than many smokers would like but each to their own. I detect no difference between Dunhill and Peterson's. I sincerely appreciate that Royal Yacht is still with us in original form.
Before making a decision about this one of a kind experience, take the time to view an older movie entitled " Captains Courageous" even better light up a bowl, sit back and savor the maturity this blend offers.
Flavored gorgeous Virginia tobacco with a strong kick of nicotine. I think the price is a little high for a 50g package, but I like it overall.
Impressive full flavor without heavy Latakia. I myself do not get the topping as much, just rich smooth smoke. I will let dry out to see if there is an improvement on detecting the added flavors mentioned. Recommended after a good meal or as a night cap.
