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 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.
As some other reviewers have commented, this blend is probably most enjoyable by more experienced pipe smokers, as it tends to have greater complexity compared to other, milder blends. Having smoked for 10 plus years, taking a puff from my first bowl gave a real start – this product was far different from others I had smoked! After finishing that bowl (then followed by many others), the blend has become a go-to in my tobacco rotation. For those smokers seeking a blend with greater depth in strength, taste and room note, this mixture is spot on. Virginia’s sweetness makes this blend enjoyable from the first to the last bowl of the day!
My favorite hearty Virginia. The odd plum topping somehow makes it just perfect. Full-bodied va flavor with good nicotine to boot! Pure satisfaction.
Very lovely blend, in a nutshell, I can say that its probably due to the amount of nicotine that keeps me coming back to this stuff. Yet that's not the only thing going for it if your a fan of Virginia's more than likely you'll enjoy this. For people who used to smoke cigarettes or have a high tolerance for nicotine, you'll enjoy this wholeheartedly.
The Peterson version of Royal Yacht is a weaker strength, harsh version with no discernible plum whatsoever. What once I would have said was perhaps the best tobacco in the world is merely a solid average. I don't know what happened, but something did.
