The Danish King Frederik IX - that died in 1972 - was an enthusiastic pipesmoker for many years. His personal favourite was this My Own Blend tobacco, that he had created himself. This wonderful recipe is naturally a secret. However we can divulge that golden Virginia and Latakia form the backbone and sounding board of the royal smoking pleasure.

Paul Olsen-King Frederick Mild. What a wonderful little smoke K'F' Mild is. The Latakia only offers a really delicate addition to the blend, if you favour a proper 'whack in the face of smokiness' then this will be a disappointment. But if you desire a deep and full tasting blend that offers flavour that's simply delicious then this will make a good addition to your rotation. Upon opening the tobacco I can instantly ascertain that it's of a superb moistness so it can be smoked instantly. After sitting with it for a while I come to the conclusion that it's a "lazy smoke"! The nicotine is mild so it would make a good evening smoke to unwind with whilst maybe enjoying a nice little tipple! If it's puffed with a bit too much enthusiasm it can burn a bit quick, but as I see this as a smoke to relax with then puffing with voracity shouldn't really be an issue! I don't get bitten by this unless I puff really harsh, but again, if I'm relaxing with it why would I want to puff hard? I find King Frederick Mild to be a great blend so I can only highly recommend it. Four stars.

Happy New Year (2012)

with an amazing blend from Denmark.

God bless “ilias4” that got me this mixture from Denmark. Having tasted Kong Frederik English, I wanted to try something a little bit sweeter, with milder flavor. I got a bullseye for my choice. It is a very balanced English type mixture, with Virginia and a small dose of Latakia, which gives the exquisite sweet taste. It fills the bowl very easily and it lights up as easily, as its humidity is ideal right when you open the tin. It maintains its flavor up until the end. The high content of Virginia predisposes you to keep 1-2 tins for aging, being sure at once you open it after 1-2 years; you will be more than compensated for your choice.

A very good Latakia mixture for beginners but also for experimented pipe smokers who are looking for an all day long tobacco. You can buy it and smoke it without any drying out. The smoke comes dry and dosen't bite your tongue and lips at all even if you are smoking without filter like me. The best choice ever.

Mellow is... yes mellow. You can smoke this all the day, and still think its mellow. I would not buy it again..

Kong Frederik, Blue Queen or Dannebrog is much better blends, if you wants something that the sea king from Denmark smoked.

My favourite all day mixture.The actual name of the mixture is Kong Frederik Mellow. The amount of Latakia is near zero or very little. A regal mixture created by the former king of Danmark that knowed how a good pipetobacco should taste.

This tobacco is faithful to its name: mild. It is so mild it's almost like smoking warm air, and yet it has a tendency to bite. Very little taste and even less aftertaste. Unfortunately I bought a 100 grams tin so I will have to consume it somehow, but if you have to spend money and you want an English, this is definitely not one to get if you have other choices around. On a plus note, I appreciate the container to be airtight when closed, something that should be done more often for other brands.
