Brebbia Rondo' (Mixture No. 27)

The same great blend as the Brebbia Classic English Mix No. 7 but with a new name and packaging! A classical English mixture of various spicy tobaccos such as Syrian latakia and Louisiana perique. Cross cut, fully aromatic, cool burning. High class quality tobacco for the demanding pipe smoker. A unique smooth, mellow and long lasting blend.
Notes: English Mixtures #7 and #70, and Rondo Mixture #27, are all the same blend.

Jacinto Cupboard is correct about this containing Orientals. The description at has them listed and I can very clearly taste them. I edited the above contents in the description to reflect this.

This is actually led by the Orientals mildly sour woody note followed by a touch of sweet hay from the Virginias. Both the Latakia and Perique are lightly applied giving little more than smoky spice. There is a lightly applied fruity topping that is noticed more in the room note than in the taste. Smokes like a light Balkan mix to me and is very well done. I can't find any fault with this smoke which earns it full honors.

Body and taste are mild to medium. Flavoring is extremely mild. This cut burns cool and very consistent. Good stuff.

Brebbia Rondo is an interesting blend. From the tin note to the cut to the flavor this is a unique and enjoyable tobacco. The tin note has sweet smokey Syrian Latakia and and figgy Perique, the most noticeable component of the aroma is the topping This is most definitely topped but with what is very hard to pin point. I would bet that there is a Tawny Port applied to the tobacco before it is tinned up. This does not play a role in the flavor beyond charring light The cut is a real treat as well. It looks as if it were hacked up with an axe or shredded by hand ( in gentleman speak it is a rough cross cut). Nice full pieces of leaf that packs and burns beautifully. I have read others report that the tins were wet and seemed to have PG added but my tins were all on the dry side with no PG detectable. The taste his you with a hint of Port on the char and then opens up with woody orientals and Latakia. The sweet Syrian Latakia and Orientals seamlessly meld together. This is a truly harmonious blend where the product is not the sum of the parts, it is far greater. This is a light Balkan, malty and that slight port sweetness boost the flavors really nicely. There is smoke and cedar, a slight sourness from the Orientals. The Perique is a light condiment that provides an additional spice to the retro hale and also plays very nicely to support and also supports the other tobacco's especially the Virginia's as you get through the midway point in the bowl.

This is a smooth spectacular smoke. If you can get your hands on this I highly recommend.
