The same great blend as the Brebbia Classic English Mix No. 7 but with a new name and packaging! A classical English Mixture of various spicy tobaccos such as Syrian Latakia and Louisiana Perique. Cross cut, fully aromatic, cool burning. High class quality tobacco for the demanding pipe smoker. A unique smooth, mellow and long lasting blend.

Notes: English Mixtures #7 and #70, and Rondo Mixture #27, are all the same blend.

Fishflake type cut of mostly mid browns with some darker leaf and some green cast leaf, the latter I assume to be Orientals. Lat can be detected on the nose but the amount of dark leaf is quite small.

This has a bubblegum type tin note, some kind of berry perhaps.

Burns well and produces a cool easy smoke. There isn't much perique so far as I can tell, but there is some pepper which does a good job of counterpointing the sweetness of this blend. I found the aroma of the sidestream smoke appealing.

This is a mild aromatic built on a light English blend. A nice change of pace tobacco, but in all honesty not something I reach for very often.

Jacinto Cupboard is correct about this containing Orientals. The description at pipesandcigars.com has them listed and I can very clearly taste them. I edited the above contents in the description to reflect this.

This is actually led by the Orientals mildly sour woody note followed by a touch of sweet hay from the Virginias. Both the Latakia and Perique are lightly applied giving little more than smoky spice. There is a lightly applied fruity topping that is noticed more in the room note than in the taste. Smokes like a light Balkan mix to me and is very well done. I can't find any fault with this smoke which earns it full honors.

Body and taste are mild to medium. Flavoring is extremely mild. This cut burns cool and very consistent. Good stuff.

Number 70 (now known as Rondo), was much different than their #80 English in that the Burley was replaced by Perique. The Syrian Latakia remains the main player and the Virginia presence is also more noticeable and had smoothed out considerably over the years (my tin was from 2007). A light Dunhill Nightcap and no so refined is the way I would describe this one. It will be out of production soon, or, the Syrian will be replaced by Cyprian.
