Porter House-Mellow Mixture. This is one of those blends with a very appropriate name. The term 'mixture' is applicable as there is a broad spectrum of different cuts and varieties of tobacco in the pouch, some ribbons, some shag and a few small pieces of flake. I can see the moisture is good so my pipe can be filled and smoked without allowing drying time and imminently the word 'mellow' seems more than apt. It lacks the sweetness that blends with Black Cavendish usually have, I would say that the Black Cav' is the last in line when it comes to flavour as there is only a slight sweetness to it. The Virginia and the Burley work brilliantly in this mix, both being the same weight so I get a good and even amount of nuttiness to grassiness. I tend to have to take things easy with this otherwise it can give me a bit of grief with tongue bite, gentle sips are paramount to enjoy this. The word 'mellow' comes into play again with nicotine, it has quite a little amount of this. I find the burn very good, from the moment it's lit it only really needs maintaining with the odd tamp. This is an enjoyable smoke, mellow and relaxing but after a while it just becomes a little mundane. For this reason the score is two stars.
