A fair proportion of Black Cavendish, Burleys and completed by a touch of Virginias, this tobacco has a unique aroma reminiscent of liquor, probably black rum, as well as notes of dark chocolates and hazelnuts.

Notes: A blend that was created based on the cigarillos of the same name that are big sellers in Canada and Australia. STG decided to launch a pipe tobacco inspired by the cigars and introduce them in Canada, maybe also in Australia as well.

Medium Mild to Medium Medium Pleasant

Slightly sweet rummy/nutty blend with vanilla overtones that is nice to smoke on occasion. It almost seems as if it is basically Colts Gold Deluxe with some Black Cavendish added. It's a decent OTC blend. I prefer the Gold Deluxe, but this ain't bad.

Availability note: In Ontario, I have occasionally found this and the Gold Deluxe for sale at convenience stores and smoke shops.

Although the name might lead the inexperienced to think this is just another artificially-sweetened aromatic, Colt's "American Mixture" packs a pleasant surprise in the pouch. It is a tangy, well-balanced smoke with a hint of cigar leaf in the mix. This tobacco packs and lights easily and I found that its flavour comes out to its best when sipped slowly, rather than taken in deep draws. Despite no Latakia being declared in the recipe Colt's AM has that smokey 'Balkan-esque' taste which is associated with the tobacco and I think it would make a good introduction to non-aromatic blends for the uninitiated.

Given the limited choices of pipe tobaccos here in Tehran (Iran) amongst about 20 brands such as Captain Black, Borkum Riff, Mac Baren, Planta, etc., the Colts American Mixture blend is my favorite alternative to a cigar. (Since Cuban cigars, sold at their franchise La Casa Del Habano here in Tehran as the only handmade option other than some European and American machine-mades, have become more expensive recently, and due to restrictions on tobacco not being able to order Cigar blends such as Mogano 146, Dominican Glory or Compton's Cuban Style Cigar Blend that are listed on this site, attempted to making a cigar leaf blend myself. I added about 10% by vol. Cuban or any good cigar leaf to this Colts blend. And it was a satisfying smoke with cigar taste and aroma connotations, and just the way cigars are supposed to be smoked - without having to inhale! Submitted in June 2013

Update 10/27/2013: Another way of making a simple cigar leaf blend as follows: Mixing 45% by volume Colts American Mixture pipe tobacco, 10% any good cigar leaf, just 5% aromatic pipe tobacco (chocolate vanilla), and 40% only light Virginia tobacco or just regular cigarette. Not-biting satisfying smoke, and without having to inhale. Good clean burn as well. Rounder taste with age starting within few days by keeping the mix tightly re-packed in the original pipe tobacco pouch, and depending on the cigar (cigar leaf) used in the mix, the blend becomes creamy, spicy, sweet, salty, etc., or any combination.

Note of caution: 1. Adding more than 12% cigar leaf such as using medium strength natural cigars (cigar leaf) in any blend of choice, will result for that blend to becoming very strong in nicotine content. In the case of Spicy, Salty or Flavored cigars also no more than 1 to 2% in the blend is needed. All due to high degree of burn in the pipe itself which intensifies both nicotine and flavor of any cigar.

2. To always making any blend of choice in small amounts at a time, in order to minimize waisting tobacco, in case satisfactory results not achieved.

I received this as a gift and wasn't very optimistic. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't entirely hate this tobacco. I found the taste to be quite mild. The smell was much nicer than the taste. It was a passible smoke that I'll smoke again when I'm running low on other stuff. I much preferred Colts Gold Deluxe (also received as a gift) to this.
