A popular combination of traditional 'English' mixture, broad cut Lemon Virginia, Latakia, Cavendish and Oriental mixture. This mix also incorporates ?Alfred's Own' and two dark flakes which have been rubbed out. Slow burning and just on the mild side of medium.

I have no idea how old my tin of Duke Street is. There is no artwork on the front, just a generic Dunhill paper label with Duke Street stamped on it.
The blend itself is quite a compilation of varying leaf, of which the Latakia and Virginia dominated - but only mildly. This is one of the few tobaccos I've ever smoked that had almost no room note once lit. I've had my fireplace give off more odor (which may mean it's time for me to to hire a good chimney sweep.)
If you are able to find a tin of Duke Street, and enjoy only the lightest of natural blends, then this is your ticket to heaven.
