Our most popular dark broken flake with a little 'casing' (flavoring). Richly flavored with a background 'tang' and medium strength

I was very excited to open my tin of this blend because I am a lover of Dunhill tobacco. The quality of the leaf was of the usual high standard expected of Dunhill an it packed easily. Although there was a nice underlying sweetness, the tobacco wasn't complex and downright boring. It shared some of the same base flavor's found in Mild Blend, but it simply lacked "direction" as I kept waiting for things to develop, but it was consistantly boring from beginning to end. Two stars for the quality leaf, but only somewhat recommended.

I smoked all of Dunhill's hand blended (only available through Jermyn St) and my three favourites were 34596, New World and Prince of Wales.

With the loss of Murray's & Sons in Belfast, all hand blends are gone followed by all of the factory blends.

As I recall the blending register at Jermyn St - 34596 was all burley, but more 'ready rubbed' as opposed to broken flake. The casing was light and predominently vanilla in aroma, but different from the blend classed as 'Vanilla', which I found over-powering. Heavy casings are not for me.

A good friend and devotee of the same blend, reliably informed me that the original blend was developed for Sir Thomas Sopwith - the British aviator early in the 20th century -

Moisture was perfect, easy burning and the perfect all day smoke - it was a burley - after all!.

As a regular customer at Jermyn St, I was given advance notice by Dunhill of their intention to withdraw hand blends and I purchased 50 tins from the last production run in Belfast. Sadly, all gone now - I can only dream about it.
