This one is produced in Germany and reminds me of a "Dan's" product, good, but the quality is really not there. It is a light Latakia blend that leans more to the bitter/sour taste than a sweet Virginia. I feel that the Orientals TRY to play the major roll but they just don't jump out and have a tendency to get ashy.

I just finished some of Dan's Mellow Mallard ( recent review ) and I get that same ashy, lack of body. I didn't like that and I don't think this is worth a second chance, just no interesting moments.

Taste wise, it is similar to Dunhill's London Mixture , but not close to the quality .

What a pleasant smoke. This American market version of Brigham's Mr. B's D-Series, “Rise and Shine,” is a mild and mellow blend in the style of Dunhill's “Early Morning Pipe.” I got my tin from Brian Levine, the genial host of the PipesMagazine.com Radio Show. In a post, Brian said that the product available now (Summer of 2013) “has been in the tin for over two years and stored in our climate controlled building. You can consider it ‘pre-aged.'” The tin aroma is sweet and spicy, a lovely balance of Virginias, Orientals and Latakia. Just a touch of moisture, that doesn't seem to effect the easy burning from char to bowl bottom. Lots of smoke; a nice sweet tang from the Virginias, and a mellowness from the Orientals. The Latakia, while not overpowering, rests well at the back of the tongue. There is no moist dottle, and it only bites if you puff like a locomotive. I think that some folk mistake “bite” in good tobaccos, for the effect that the tang of quality Virginias impart to the restive, Casey Jones puffer. I like this tobacco. My wife and daughter and grandkids say it smells pleasant. What more can you ask of a tobacco?

I agree with everything Dino has said. The only thing he left out was that all these blends have been created for Brigham by the estimable R. L. Will, in Germany.
