Charatan Victorian Mixture may be of a different time period but it commands the same royal dignity. Pure Virginia and perique tobaccos, unadulterated, pressed and ribbon cut. Prim and proper.

Charatan - Victorian Mixture.

As I've mentioned before I write for the UK Tobacconist McGahey's. They sent me 'Victorian Mixture a few days ago and like the other new Charatan blends I'm not disappointed!

Often billed as a replacement for Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture?

It's made of mostly medium size ribbons but a closer look reveals a few small broken flakes. The mixture includes every shade of brown, from light to dark and the moisture's good.

It gives a high quality VaPer smoke. The Virginia forms the platform, giving the usual hay-like flavour, but the Perique gives an immense amount of life: spicy, dark fruit, a little sour. The slight sourness has a vinegary quality. There's no mistaking the fact that a decent quantity of Perique has been added. It burns below medium in temperature and I doubt it would bite anyone!

Nicotine: above medium. Room-note: plenty of Perique.

Charatan Victorian Mixture? It's been a while since I smoked Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture so can't really draw a comparison. But, I can happily highly recommend it:

Four stars.
