Dunhill - Standard Mixture Medium.

I bought this a year ago, having no idea Dunhill would 'disappear' from the tobacco world. It's a fine smoke, shame it's gone!

My blend has a slightly lighter appearance than the one pictured here. I see mostly light and medium browns with just a few black ribbons. The smell from the tin's quite a calm English one; although the Latakia can be identified, there's a notable hay/fresh touch from the Virginias. The seal 'hissed' when I popped it, so the tobacco's been preserved exactly as it was when tinned, but the moisture's perfect.

At the risk of sounding ciceronian and rhetoric, this would make a great All Day Smoke. There's Latakia, yes, but the smoke isn't a heavy, smoky, mess. The Latakia takes the lead, yes, but is exceedingly well supported by the other two. I note a subtle sharpness from the Orientals, and a pleasing wisp of hay from the Virginia. It burns very well, my bowls have needed little maintenance. The smoke's medium temperature, and hasn't got a bite in it.

Nicotine: below medium. Room-note: nice.

Standard Mixture Medium? I find this exemplifies why it's a shame Dunhill has gone. Four stars:

Highly recommended.
