Medium to Strong Medium to Strong Full Very Pleasant

Bought this from Spain, as it's widely available there along with other Mostex products. Pleasantly surprised by this tobacco, as it's everything I like about English mixtures MINUS the bitterness (which can creep in with the best Dunhills) PLUS a sweet note, probably the orientals. A truly great mixture if you want a break from the more austere Latakia blends.

Croatia has recently appeared. All my friends from the club agreed that it is very similar Dunhill's 965, which is slowly disappearing. For every compliment! And at a price and in quality!

A very delightful english blend. Great composition of different tobaccoes including latakia. It's quite cheap but good quality. Burns perfectly to white ash. Tastes great with some beer.

Medium to Strong Medium Full Tolerable

This Stanislaw mixture is a very nice introduction to a more full bodied,oriental tobacco blend. Without being too strong due to the Virginia, the tobacco is more complex and spicy. Burns just right, has a tolerable aroma, and fits the bill when your in the mood for the specific taste.

This is excellent stuff; as a previous reviewer has noted, it stands up well against Dunhill's London Mixture, and you can't say fairer than that.

On the face of it, the great advantage of Mostex's London Mixture is its cheapness. Unfortunately, though, you can get it in the UK only by ordering it through a website that charges so much for postage that it turns out to be not so cheap after all.

Before too much longer, I hope, Mostex will perhaps find a British importer. Mostex/Stanislaw tobacco won't be cheap then (because of swingeing excise duties) but it'll still be worth paying for. I recommend it highly.

(Then again, I sometimes wonder why so many excellent tobaccos are freely available elsewhere, but not in the UK: Esoterica's Penzance, the 'new' Balkan Sobranie and Capstan in its various flake forms are cases in point. I'm inclined to suspect a cunning, inch-by-inch movement towards actual prohibition; but that's something I'd really rather not think about!)

My sister brought a pouch back for me from her recent trip to Prague. When I first opened the pouch, I was impressed by the aroma, but at the same time a little apprehensive. I prefer and usually smoke aromatics, and have not done too well with English blends. Usually the Latakia tends to be too strong for my taste and I wind up with a headache. With London Mixture, however, there is just enough Latakia to make it interesting, but not over-powering. The smoke is nowhere close to the mildness of my usual aromatic, but compared to all the other English tobaccos I have tried, it is remarkably enjoyable. It will never be my regular smoke, but it is the kind of tobacco that if you're hungry for it, nothing else will do. Now, my biggest problem is where am I going to get more after this pouch is gone?! Great job Mr. Stanislaw!

Simply fantastic. I'm impressed with the true quality of this tobacco. A real thing! Natural, smoky, fine, burns well and cool, just perfect...and inexpensive,too.
