Exceptional! Similar to the famous Sullivan Powell Gentleman's Mixture but with the Latakia presence ramped up a bit. I am also reminded of Balkan Sobranie 759, but Special Mixture is a little heavier on the Orientals and lighter on the Latakia. Simply fantastic!

Pipe Used: Ruthenberg, Weaver, Rad Davis, J.T. Cooke

Age When Smoked: 30 year old tin

A dear friend recently estate-acquired two tins from a deceased relative, both in excellent condition. It's been decades since I last enjoyed it. We opened and smoked three bowls together consecutively . . . simply divine. Reminiscent of 759 from what I can recall; pipe nirvana every puff.

I shall petition the CPCC to showcase this blend for one of their throw-downs, simply for my own personal desires and I'm sure many others would enjoy it as an hommage blend if achievable.
