更多有关:全球专售! 伦敦 Dunhill 手调烟草不完全目录……

 

伦敦 Dunhill 店面据称,在英国伦敦 JamesJermyn 胡同(旧址就在拐角的 St. Duke)Dunhill 老店夹层二楼出售的烟斗,价格是全球最高的;而有一期『Pipe Smoke』杂志,就曾详尽地刊登了烟斗客到伦敦『朝圣』的攻略,其中,固然要用为数不少的文字,介绍伦敦 Dunhill 店。然而,这个版本的说法是:那里的烟斗选择较多,价格亦比美国约低三分之一,还有退税优惠(即顾客若非欧盟公民,就不用缴增值税(V.A.T.)。这个政策造成了欧洲人乐于跑去光顾美国人,美国人热衷于光顾欧洲人,或者所在地非在本州的网店…… 无他,都为了避税)。

    不过,比 Dunhill 烟斗更值得留意的,当然是那儿的手调烟草(Hand-Blended Tobacco Mixtures)。选择多多,令人眼花缭乱,按罐装或按磅出售。另外,有兴趣的玩家,还可按自己的配方,照单抓药,现调现买,罐子标记『My Mixture』,高度个性化,非常过瘾。而且,这些调配又是全球专售的,也就是说,出售 Dunhill 手调烟草的,仅此一家,绝无分店,连美国、香港(两地都有 Davidoff 专门店)等地也不例外,让人又爱又恨。这也许又从一个侧面,体现了英国人特别(古怪)的经营哲学,Dunhill 要是美国品牌的话,手调烟草可能早就像 Captain Black 那样唾手可得了。

    尝了其中四款(据不完全统计,Dunhill 手调烟草共有 39 款之多!):以 Dunhill 创始人命名,卖点是调配添加了 Havana 雪茄芯的『Mr. Alfred's Own』, BB 屁股『Baby's Bottom』,『White Spot』(烟嘴上的招牌小白点,Dunhill 烟斗的不二印记,典故是当初为了方便工匠迅速找到烟嘴朝上的一面!),还有 Latakia 含量高达 52 %,火花四起,非骨灰级玩家勿近的『Mixture # 73』,皆发觉风味绝伦,丝毫也不比大量制产的『Early Morning Pipe』、『Nightcap』等逊色,甚至有过之而无不及,大概是难觅作祟吧。50 克罐装的价钱是 9.60 英镑,折合人民币约 115 元。虽比行货款式的 Dunhill 烟草足足贵了一个 Double,但始终还觉得物有所值,意犹未尽。有机会亲身到伦敦,或者彼邦有朋友回国的话,就千万不要错过了。

    题外话:据说店铺躲在一条毫不起眼的后街中,一楼卖服饰、皮具,整间店像 Boutique 多过像 Tobacconist……
