D Do specific brands of briar pipes provide correspondingly specific flavors? Does a Dunhill pipe, a Charatan, or a Chonowitsch, have a unique taste that separates that brand from all other briar pipes? Does an expensive brand, such as Castello, provide a superior level of smoking experience that is unattainable by more pedestrian brands such as Chacom or Stanwell? There are many pipe smokers and collectors who firmly believe that the answer to these questions is yes. Others only partially subscribe. I refer to the above beliefs as part of the “brand myth” in pipe smoking. The point of this article is that brand is largely based on illusion and I hope to expose both the nature and origin of that illusion.

I’ve been a pipe smoker since I did not undertake this particular review until I had smoked an entire tin of Westminster, 17 bowls in 15 different pipes. Personally, I will never review any tobacco that I haven’t smoked at least that much; I believe that this is the only way to learn enough about a tobacco to be able to form a relatively informed opinion.
In general, it takes time to get to know a new tobacco. It takes time to find the right pipe in your collection to bring out the best in a tobacco, and it takes time to learn the optimal smoking cadence for a new tobacco. And to make things even more unpredictable, some pipes and tobaccos perform best under certain climactic conditions. I bought several tins of Westminster when it was first released. I was anxious to try them.

The story of Alfred Dunhill is so tied up with myth that the myths are now part of the history. Alfred Dunhill, being aware of this phenomenon, probably perpetuated many of such myths. Alfred Dunhill inherited a harness business in at the age of In , the first pipes and tobacco shop opened on Duke St.
The shop soon came to be known for its customized blends. Alfred Dunhill however, was unsatisfied with the current quality of available pipes. The pipes coming in from France were highly varnished and consequently clogged the pores of the briar. They were simply not doing justice to his creative blending. Alfred opened a small factory of his own in He set down two principles that would guide the production of Dunhill Pipes.
