Dunhill Mild Blend

A blend of fine Virginia leaf from the USA, Brazil and Zimbabwe is pressed to meld and enhance its character. The tobacco is then cut and rough rubbed. Finally, Red Cavendish and Bright Virginia are added to provide a mild, well-balanced smoke.

In the beginning there were men, many of whom smoked pipes. And, not so very long ago, these men weren?t viewed as quaint or abhorrent, but as men doing manly things. Dunhill produced the world's finest pipe blends for these men. Today, Dunhill outsources tobacco and merely puts its name on it, and civilization, in even a minute way, is less rich for it. A lone tin of Dunhill Mild found at a suburban Chicago tobacco outpost reminds me of the kind of tobacco men smoked a generation or two ago. Mild is Dunhill?s glorious achievement of European Virginia tobacciana at its best. Flanked with just enough creaminess in its base and the perfect hints of oak and nut, Mild is representative of gentlemen, pipes and the fastidiousness of English blending. All these glowing reviews here about other Dunhill products must be referring to what was accomplished on English soil prior to EU manufacture. With Mild never is there any bite or nicotine overdose, and all you taste is rich tobacco that never under or overwhelms; imagine that! If you ever find any tins of Mild laying around, horde as many as you can, for like the times and the world it represented, it shall never pass our way again.

As a fan of Standard Mixture Mild I ordered a tin of this after reading Pipestuds' review. A quality blend that suits me fine as an early morning break time smoke. It won't have much impact on your tastebuds if you are into the stronger blends first. Give it a whirl early in the day for best results. It also burns well with minimal fuss. Recommended for the Latakia weary.

After reading the above neophyte's review of Dunhill Mild Blend a couple of weeks ago, I immediately scrambled for the phone and ordered a tin. Usually, if a young pipe smoker can't handle the nicotine of a blend, well, that's my blend. I love Royal Yacht (my all-time favorite), and it's potent and tasty. The kid who did the previous review of Mild Blend better run from Royal Yacht. A bowl of that stuff sonny, and you may never get up off the ground!

Mild Blend--in typical Dunhill fashion--is not at all mild. It is uncased, straight forward quality leaf that provides a cool, smooth smoke. Upon opening the tin you will catch the aroma of honey--not raisins for heavens sake!--and once packed, it will stay lit well and burn mostly to a dry ash.

Mild blend is very similar in taste to Orlik's Golden Sliced. It also tastes like Royal Yacht without the casing. So, if a great tobacco taste without fluff is your bag, check this stuff out. If, on the other hand, you are like the neophyte who first reviewed this blend, steer clear or risk missing church because you can't drive!

Another classy blend from Dunhill. Upon opening the tin, I smelled faint notes of raspberry - not fresh, but as if they had been baked (Raspberry Pie). That peculiar scent is not present when lighted. The cut is quite uneven, so it may be a little hard to pack. This blend is not the stronger version of Ultra Mild Blend. One could believe that when seeing the design of both tins. They are both very unique blends, despite the tins weak design.

Mild blend tastes better though, It is more stout and the smoke is spicy, intense and thick, especially from mid-bowl and down. It takes a while for Mild Blend to develop that fine Dunhill-taste many of us love, but when smoked slowly with patience, you will be regarded with - in my opinion, one of the best "bright-orange-VA-with-a-pinch-of-cavendish-blends" ever made. Outstanding!
