A rough cut blend of five different Virginias, including a little portion of dark fired Kentucky and latakia, Orientals, perique for added spice and depth. Friendly and enjoyable gentle, highly recommended for daily smoking pleasure. The Mixture No.5 is suited primarily for pipes with a large bowl.

Peppery, spicy, fresh, this is at once a mellow and intriguing blend. Rough (or wild) cut, it is easy to pack and has a long lasting burning rate. It comprises quite a bit of heady tobaccos: the Kentucky is as good (and strong) as the one used by Larsen or Cornell & Diehl; the Orientals are slightly muted, but their nutty undertones are still noticeable, and the Latakia?Syrian, I believe?provides a very palatable density to the matured Virginian base. Finally, the Périque comes alive after a couple of minutes, but it does so in a most polite and humble way. Mild to medium in strength, this blend has only furthered my appreciation to the Torben Dansk range of English style tobaccos. Easy to smoke, unpretentious, they fulfil all the formal requirements in this category. The use of Syrian, rather than Cyprian Latakia allows for a very peculiar depth: smoky sweet (plum like) instead of smoky mineral. This is a blend I could smoke bowl after bow for an entire evening and wouldn?t get tired of it. Smoke it slowly for it can lead to a certain degree of tongue bite.
