Dunhill 965 is a blend that many believe can never be matched. That is until Sutliff Dunhill 965 Match Pipe Tobacco entered into the bowl. Cavendish, Latakia, and Turkish/Orientals are used to allow any smoker to sit back and enjoy a bowl as if it was mixed by Alfred Dunhill himself. A slight Citrusy flavor, a touch of earthiness, and a smoky woodsy quality are characteristics that have made this blend an all-time favorite. Stock up today and enjoy everyday.

Ok let me begin with the obvious; this is a knockoff of 965 and therefore isn't an exact replica. So that out of the way, I will say that considering the cost compared to 965, it's a nice smoke. I will not agree with those who state it's an exact replacement but do feel it's a real nice light English blend. Maybe the black cavendish in excess takes away from it simply being just another English blend. For me it's a bit too light, but for the wonderful price I will keep this in my rotation going forward. I would keep 965 mas my go to, but not on a fixed pension and my desire to burn an average of 6-bowls a day.
I bought the Sept 2022 compare and share and really enjoyed this. Not ever smoking Dunhill 965, i don't have a base of comparison. Nor have I tried the Peterson version. The Latakia was a perfect balance to the other contents. Not a strong nicotine hit making it a great all dayer.
I like it.
Just fine. Enough body to be satisfying and very pleasant.
This is a pleasant smoke, and vaguely reminiscent of 965 I suppose. It smells nice, and burns cool. It is a very good value, regardless of how much of a "match" it is to 965. I'll buy it again.
This was a reasonable smoke and the latakia definitely stood out. The smoky hints started to be evident a few minutes in.
Boring, not even close to the original.
What a pleasure to find an English without perique, but especially one that captures the essence of Dunhill My Mixture 965. This review is based on my assumption that this is the same as Match 20.
So-so. Mix was OK, but cut was not much like STG's blend for Dunhill.
