Dunhill My Mixture 221B Baker Street

From P&C's website: Previously only available from Dunhill stores, My Mixture 221B Baker Street makes a triumphant return after a long hiatus. This is a Virginia/Burley blend with a subtle top note in a similar vein to Royal Yacht and 3 Year Matured Virginia, but not quite as intense. Top quality leaf is cut into a fine ribbon and produces a relatively mellow flavor and aroma, but make no mistake, this is a robust blend with plenty of strength. 221B Baker Street is strong enough to delight the Great Detective himself.

If you like darker Virginia like what is in Dunhill - Ye Olde Signe and Burley and Kentucky then you are gonna love this blend . It has kind of raisin and a bit smoky (from Dark fired Kentucky) and a bit grassy and also a bit dark fruits notes when you smoke it.

Big tin for 50 grams. Moisture just right from tin opening.

Easy to pack and stays lite well.

Smoked full tin. No bite. Cool. Effortless. Delightful.

Rough cut with ribbons. Maybe more burley than usual for a Dunhill with VA. A light aromatic to me, but hardly any added flavors. Does not taste artificial or chemical to me..

A bit heavier than a typical burley/VA light aromatic, probably due to the dark fired leaf added, which shows through at times but hardly dominates. Still a medium at most.

Does not compare to me with the weight, depth, or type of flavors of Royal Yacht, nor does it have a sweet berry taste as in Three year Matured. The topping here is light and I get it more in the last half of the smoke as a subtle sweetness (maybe apricot is close). Flavor stays to the end.

Recommended for a light-medium, semi-sweet smoke.

Well, its not the same as the old Dunhill ....but its certainly not bad at all. In fact its pretty darn good. The difference is in the Virginias i think, and the manner the casing was applied. Its a mild MILD casing...mild enough to not rank this as an aromatic. It is similar but not identical to the one used on Royal yacht. The new version is quite nice though. The burley has some nic, and is high quality....i think there are two burley types in here. The cut is typical dunhill ribbon. Love it or hate it. I like it but mostly because it reminds me of the old Duke street days. This blend had quite a following. This new incarnation though is one of the better re releases. The old blend was an all time classic. Strength is the high end of medium but it never bites. Pleasant all day smoke for those who like nicotine. Has a sort of smooth creamy quality -- unusual for a blend half burley. The virginias are mild...perhaps the same as in the new version of Light flake. Overall a fine attempt to recreate a classic.

I bought this one at the same time as I got my first tin of Ye Olde Signe as I was struggle to decide what to buy. Much like that one it took me a while to resolve the flavour but I think I got there in the end.

The tin note is very mild, possible sweet and woody, while the colour is dark with a multitude of medium brown flecks. It lights and packs easily, inspite of what others may say is a damp tobacco. I haven't picked up anything sweet or citrus as described in other reviews, but I picked up hints of hay and nuts and a decent wallop of oak with a nice undertone of earth. I could swear there is a hint of kentucky in here.

This seems to be a lighter version of of what I would consider to be heavier tobaccos such as Old Dark Fired or 3Ps, but without the sweetness or frutiness that either of them may possess. It seems to me to be a good smoke for after a stout evening meal as one settles in for putting one's feet up after a sterling day's work. It is becoming a firm favourite and has joined that very small yet slowly growing club of tobaccos where I have gone out and bought a second tin straight after finishing the first. Thank you Dunhill and please keep up the good work.

I love Dark Fired Kentucky leaf and Baker Street not only contains some-you can easily make it out in the tin note-but it is one of the best variety I have had the pleasure to smoke! The tobacco components were well balanced and interplayed smartly together, resulting in a tasty, spicy, slightly sweet smoking experience providing good nicotine. Baker Street burns nicely, develops strength as you go down the bowl and leaves not only a dry bowl but a full sense of satisfaction. It's such a shame that this brand is no more because I only have 9 in hand. I will have to carefully ration them. I believe Baker Street will be excellent after 5 or 6 years of aging. Highly recommended if you happen to enjoy Dark Fired Kentucky.
