Low nicotine, flue-cured leaf blended with white burley. Fermented then remixed and allowed to settle and mature before packing. The result is a smooth, mild tobacco, cool smoking with a distinctive taste and aroma.

Boy do I miss this wonderful tobacco! The tin aroma is rich, deep and fruity. Fruity and sweet in a Virginia way, not a fruit topping. This tobacco is lightly topped, but I would not call it an aromatic. It has a unique flavor profile that I have not found in any other tobacco. I loved to smoke a bowl of this when taking a break from mm965 or EMP. Sadly I waited too long to try it as it isn't the type of blend I would normally seek out. The upcoming return of Dunhill to America appears to not include this wonderful blend. If you have never tried it,don't pass it up! Highly recommended!

This blend afforded me a terrific smoking experience last night and again this morning. What an outstanding presentation of Virginia and Burley! I am not sure how Dunhill managed this, but they sure created a surprise. The name of the blend is Ultra Mild, and is touted as low in nicotine. Compared to Royal Yacht perhaps, but this baby indeed delivered enough nicotine to knock out neophytes. I absolutely loved it!

Upon opening the tin, I smelled the Burley more than the Virginia. The tobacco is mostly rubbed out, but I rubbed it out even further before loading up. The blend, typical of Burley, was a tad on the dry side - perfect for my tastes!

At the match, Ultra Light announced itself as a predominantly Burley blend, but oh my, what a classy Burley it is. The Virginia element is complimental in this blend and provided a sensational added taste. If you like Burley at all, you will enjoy this simple, yet elegant example of why Dunhill tobaccos are among the best in the world. I must go now so that I can order another tin or two or ten for my cellar!

I bought three Dunhill 50g tins. EMP, My Mixture 965 and the Ultra Mild. I wanted to get a nice spectrum of flavors.

This tobacco has a wonderful leaf presentation as soon as you open the tin. Smells very mild compared to the other Dunhill blends and smokes in a similar way.

I will say that straight out of the tin it's very moist. It would be a good idea to leave this out for a couple of minutes before you pack it. Once packed, it smokes wonderfully and just like the name indicates it's very mild. I don't think the "Ultra" is needed because you can definetly taste it, unlike some who said it had no flavor whatsoever. It burns to a very nice ash and the Burley helps keep the pipe on the cooler side during the smoke.

This is one of my favorite tobaccos to smoke at the end of the day. Especially if I've smoked a lot of Englsih blends and need something smooth to finish on before bed. This could be a good bridging tobacco for somemeone who is looking to get into VAs but just wants to test the waters.

Will most likely purchase again.

A small sample of this came my way, and upon opening the bag, I was immediately awash in the scent of red Virginia with a bit of fermentation on it, lost in a backdrop of white Burley.

These two extremes, bonded through some bright Virginia which was apparently pressed into flake together with those other varieties and then partially rubbed out to make this blend, come together on their middle-of-the-road, slightly sweet flavor that channels the natural flavor of tobacco into a honey-and-oats flavor. The first light brings out the Virginias with a gentler version of the famous "ketchup" aroma of certain straight Virginia blends, but then the malty taste of the white Burley arises and mingles with the honey and caramel flavors. As with all Dunhill products, this tobacco is cut finely for easy burning, and so the bowl proceeds without any particular effort from the pipe smoker, progressing from a mixture of flavors to a chord of gentle flavors in which no part stands out from the whole as the blend caramelizes. A mild and slightly perfume-like topping has been lightly sprinkled among the leaf and serves as a midwife to the melding of the different flavors, then evaporates.

While this blend is deliberately mild in flavor and Nicotine alike, it burns easily and smokes gently with no acidity, much like a good after-dinner cigar which is designed for comfort and ease rather than intensity. This is a great blend that refuses to announce itself as such until the bowl is over, at which point you wish you had more of it.

Thanks to Pipes Magazine Forum members "Cosmic" and "quint" for this sample.

This is one of the best tobaccos I have ever smoked- period. Total heaven. It consists of coarse-cut burleys and aged Virginias. Upon opening the tin, you will be greeted with a wonderful natural plum-raisin aroma. Smooth doesn't even begin to describe this smoke. It burns so cool and well that it almost smokes itself. Absolutely zero bite. A very flavorful nutty and slightly sweet smoke. Incredible. A perfect balance. Room note is probably one of the best I have ever encountered. Smells liked baking home-made bread. It's a real shame this excellent tobacco is no longer available in the States and elsewhere. Fortunately here in Japan in the year 2016, it is still widely available at decent prices. If you can get your hands on a tin of this heavenly tobacco, you surely won't be disappointed.

Probably available only in the Japanese market these days. Seems most humble name and tin desigh in Dunhill range but brilliant contents! Burns easy and no tongue bite. Light Burley kick with fruity-chocolate-soda like aroma until bottom of the bowl. for me, Just want more strength.

Pipe Used: Best in small pipe

Age When Smoked: New 50g tin

Purchased From: Local Tobacconist

Tobacco is "ready rubbed" - ie Flake tobacco and ready for smoking. When you open a can, feel the smell of dried figs and more of something - perhaps orange flowers or bark, mostly "Mediterranean" trick. This tobacco does not by what is "mild" tobacco, as its name suggests ... This is a superb blend of red Virginia and Burley that has gone through the process of double-frying - Cavendish process, and then squeezing in order to obtain "Flake" and eventually crushed and ready for smoking. Like all top tobaccos - develops its flavor from the very beginning to the end ... It provides a special - chocolate - hazelnut flavor with the aroma of figs constantly present in the background ... Of course, here there is no trace of any artificial flavoring - all natural, so it must be at the top of tobacco. Real "Englishman" - of course without Latakia ... Or for those less fortunate who have not had a chance to try - a bit like a Stoneheaven, only more intense aroma and flavor. It is a medium strong tobacco, but not baked tongue, but well, I am not there some parameter, with respect to the smoker internship.

What a sweet, flavorful, tasty smoke it is! It burns easily, generates beautiful clouds of sweet smoke and flavor, and an overwhelming sweetness is simply a pleasure. No harshness and tongue bite whatsoever, and at the same time no strong casing detected -- simply a delicious, mellow, sweet smoke. Smell a tin upon opening and you know you're in for a delicious dessert. Not as mild as one might think, simply medium in taste and strength.

Highly recommended, can be easily smoked all day with pleasure. Your wife may wish you smoked this more often.

I've been writing here for quite a long time so those of you who have read my reviews know I like to give succinct descriptions of the blends. Well, here is another one. This, in flavor, is a cross between TROOST SLICES and PETERSON'S UNIVERSITY FLAKE. The best thing though is it lacks that horrid and overwhelming nicotine kick associated with European Burley blends. This has the best of all possible worlds. It is very flavorful, extremely cool , and has just enough nicotine to make the blend palatable. The room note is heavenly and the burn even. You cannot get bored with this blend. Although it is slightly monotone in character, it always satisfies.This is for the American who wants to try a really classy and excellent European blend, or the European looking for a non aromatic that doesn't bite like a junkyard dog.It is a tin of old- it states plainly- "MADE in the UK". This is not an outsourced German blend. It is the real thing- an English English blend.I was lucky enough to procure some, as it is now out of production. Sorry, I can't tell you where because the last tins will be mine :0)! If you find some ,get it! 4 of 4 non/slightly aromatic stars!!!

I was finally able to build up enough quantity of this from the Murray days of Dunhill to try it. It's pretty sad that this isn't available anymore. As others have noted, the name itself is sort of misleading. While not a powerhouse, this is anything but boring. It burns supremely well, typical of Dunhill's blends. The aroma is just delicious. So is the flavor. The Burley really shines, and the VA is of very obvious quality and maturation. This is just a great blend, and again, the only word for its absence is sad.

I must thank Mr. Pipestud for making me try this one! Years ago i considered buying a tin, but the word "ultra mild" got me off the idea. I'm a nicotine lover, so i didn't give it a shot back then. Now this blend is discontinued in Denmark, and i haven't seen it on any online stores.

Well, I was lucky, and I won an auction on Ebay; 7 sealed tins, 10 years old with the vacuum still intact!! Boy am i glad i did! This wonderful burley/Va blend is a lovely and gentle smoke. And as always with Dunhill: Quality leaf!

The topping (very subtle) reminds me of that in Dunhill Light Flake, it packs and lights well, and doesn't bite me at all. It had enough nicotine to keep me satisfied, and i hope i'll be able to get some more. Watch it fellas, i'm gonna out-bid you!

Thanks for the inspiration, i've already orded a tin of Dunhill Mild Blend, and i am looking forward!!

If you are looking for the mild but tasty tobacco,this is it.You can taste pure tobacco sweetness with no irritation. I recommend this to be preserved moist,but of course,take care to not go moldy.

This was just the most boring smoke I could possibly imagine. Maybe my palate is just not refined enough for this, but I don't think I'll ever give it another try. Smells too much like cigarettes too.

Edit: Whatever I had came in a round tin, so it might not be what everyone else is reviewing. But the label was the same.

I am very sad because this tobacco isn`t produced anymore. I bougt it last year upon reading reviews on this site. At first i didn`t like it because i didn`t smoke it correctly. After almost a year I re-discovered it and now I can tell you that it is superb. It has very interesting taste that I never found elsewhere. It is the best in small pipe and through slow puffing (at least for me). I am glad that I bougt it and it will surely be missed.

I also tried this tobacco based on Pipestud's review. I usually avoid any "ultra mild" tobacco, so I never purchased this before when it was readily available on the tobacco shop shelves. Now it seems rather hard to find except on ebay at a very premium price, but I found one lone tin in a tobacco shop and bought it. Glad I did.

This is indeed a very good Virginia / Burley mixture. It is a ready rubbed tobacco with a few pieces of broken flake present. On smelling it I don't detect any added flavoring, just a natural tobacco scent. While smoking, Burley is the predominant taste with the added sweetness and tongue tingle (and I mean this favorably) from the Virginia. Smokes cool and dry leaving a light grey ash. I highly recommend this tobacco. It is an excellent high grade Virginia / Burley mixture. I will definitely buy more if I can find it at a reasonable price.
