The perfect all-day smoking mixture. Well aged Virginias and Cavendish are skillfully prepared in this cool, refreshing blend.

In search of a mild aromatic, I was very satisfied with W.Ø. Larsen "Mellow Mixture". You definitely can smell the ginger in there, yet it is not overwhelming (I am not usually a big fan of this spice) and I can definitely also get a whiff of nuts and vanilla. When it comes to smoking, I was surprised by how easy it was to light up for an aromatic...and that was slightly wet, from a a new pouch! Also doesn't burn hot. Other thing worth mentioning: No tongue-bite! Something I have rarely experienced with aromatic blends. One not so good thing, the rough cut is maybe a little bit too rough. I pulled out a decent sized stem from the pouch and some chunks can be quite big.

A good price-quality ratio in Europe.

This is one of the more interesting and unique tobaccos in my line up. Mostly it seems to be a very nice Virginia, the taste of which reminds me of McClelland 2010, along with a flavored Cavendish, and I think there are a few strands of ribbon burley in there as well.

In the tin, it smells like a bag of ginger snaps, and the taste of ginger does seem to be very apparent in the smoke, although it does not overwhelm the backgroud tobaccol At first, the taste of the ginger put me off a bit, but I quickly got to like it. It imparts a spiciness to the smoke that might remind you a little bit of perique in so far as the way it feels in your mouth.

I really don't smoke this on a regular basis. I find I might smoke it a couple of times in a day, and then put it away for a few weeks. Too different to be a regular smoke, but excellent now and then. Three stars.

Despite the rich flavouring, sometimes this tobacco gives you a rich mild taste.

True to it's namesake, this tobac is very mellow with no bite at all. The room note is pleasant, it packs and burns well, and doesn't have a lot of humectant so it burns fairly clean for an aromatic. Unfortunately, it has almost no discernible flavor. Not much point in smoking flavorless tobacco.

This one produces a magical phenomenon: pleasant and full taste, but with no room aroma at all. Smoke this classic Danish mixture where you would like to be "invisible" (and of course you can manage to hide the smoke).Pleasant for every day smoking...

You can also find it in 50 grs pouches in some places. This is the worst tobacco I ever smoked. This has absolutely no taste whatsoever. Avoid by all means !!!

Horrible, bitter stuff. No flavor at all other that hot air, steam and bitter yuck. Would not stay lit, even though it did not seem to be wet. Went through a whole tank of butane on the Colibri, then a whole book of matches to get half way through the bowl. I hope that this did not taint the pipe.

A nice aromatic with good tobacco flavor amid pleasing highlights of ginger and plum. Can smoke a little hot if puffed too aggressively. Recommended as a change-of-pace blend that doesn?t lose itself in an overdone topping. 3 stars

This is an excellent tobacco in the sense that it does taste of tobacco, in spite of the carfeully added ginger casing. It is aromatic, but the flavour is not overwhelming. It is a good option for those non-aromtic smokers wishing a change of pace, or for those aromatic smokers who would like to try something that is not as sweet as Captain Black, nor as plain as, say, Orlik's Golden Slices.

Mellow Mixture skilfully combines virginia, toasted burleys and black cavendish. It is rough cut and packs easily in mid-size bowl. Once you get through the usual lighting procedures, it burns pretty well and smoothly. It is an excellent companion to listen to music with, though it does demand a certain degree of attention.

Larsens' tobaccos are always high quality (they even have a mild latakia-virginia-unflavoured toasted black cavendish mixture--Selected Blend #20). This is no exception. It is slightly stonger in taste and aroma than Selected Blend #80, but not as sweet as Selected Blend #50 or Sweet Aromatic (from the Master's Blend).
