My father did blend this especially for the late, great entertainer. It is a variation of our New Mix, blending it to finish with an Irish aroma. It was also the favorite of Andre Previn.

The Oriental/Turkish spice is just a little more obvious than the smokey, woody, sweet Cyprian latakia. The Virginia is naturally sweet with a little grass and earth taste. The Irish mist is very mildy applied, and works well with the other components instead of competing with them. Has a consistent flavor to the finish. Burns perfectly even, cool, and leaves no dottle. Has a nice after taste.

I had the pleasure of sampling this while in California and the once again at the Chicago Pipe Show.The best way to describe this blend is very Peretti-esque.An extremely old timey English blend. The Irish aroma is what I would call a lot lke the Belmont Mixture by Peretti. Not sweet but aromatic. The Latakia is noticeable and the oriental/Virgina components add a smoky/bready taste. The room not is pleasant while smoking but turns a tad rank afterwaards. No Bite and absolutlely lovely. Well worth a shot for those who remember Wilke & Barclay-Rex.

The first review by thedstnguishdgntimn hits the nail on the head with his observation that this is very similar to English blends made by another famous old pipe shop, Peretti's of Boston. It has the look and feel of a Peretti blend. Danny Kaye is an “old school” American English that is balanced with just the right amount of Latakia for my taste. It also has an underlying sweetness that serves as a nice addition to the blend, but it isn't an aromatic. Each component tobacco plays well off of the other, without any particular tobacco dominating. The rough cut is easy to pack and it's clean burning. I enjoy it well dried as it seems to bring out the best in the blend. Danny Kaye isn't the best English blend I have ever had, but I would have no reservation in recommending it. Three and a half well deserved stars.
