Dunhill My Mixture 1167

Notes: "The Havana tobacco used in this mixture is imported from the famous ‘La Corona’ factory, the only mixture possessing the richness and flavour of a choice cigar" (1915). "Virginias, Cavendish and Oriental Leaf with added Havana Filler leaf and Perique, now known as #1167" (store description of unknown date). "A spicy flavoured blend of medium strength, consisting of mixed Virginias, Cavendish and Oriental Leaf with added Havana Filler leaf and Perique. There is no Latakia in this blend. Only available at the London Dunhill store" (late 20th Century).

I originally purchased this under the label "Cuba" from the Dunhill store in London in 1999 as part of a larger mail-order. As I understand it, this was the last year the private-label "My Mixtures" were still hand-blended by Dunhill in the London flagship store. Later production was shipped out like all of the mass-market mixtures to Murray's before being discontinued.

Cuba is a balanced blend wherein each of the components makes its presence known and contributes to a unified, distinct whole--which is the essence of a true "mixture." The Virginias provide a dry background (kind of like the tannins in Chianti), while the Cavendish adds a slight sweetness, and the Perique contributes its peculiar spice. The cigar leaf, however, is the prime attraction and is discernible throughout the smoke and in the side-stream aroma, adding creaminess and depth. The cigar leaf is of the highest quality. The description specifically lists, "Havana filler leaf," and I believe it.

The tobacco itself is a slightly finer cut than usually found in Dunhill My Mixture blends, and accordingly, it ignites readily and remains lit with little effort or attention. I only wish I would have stockpiled rooms full of this stuff when it was still available. I wonder if Dunhill would ever consider reissuing a series of premium quality, hand-blended mixtures that hearken back to their halcyon days. I for one would be willing to shell out some extra bucks to take another trip to "Cuba."
