Fribourg & Treyer 34th Mixture

(2.83)
Medium strength mixture, light in body, with double broad cut Virginia, natural black cavendish and latakia.
Notes: This is made by Planta in Berlin under license ever since Imperial Tobacco closed down Fribourg & Treyer. As Planta bought only the recipe and Imperial Tobacco seems to want to revive the F&T name for a cigarette, Planta had to change the Name to Petersen & Sörensen.

I loved the rich, broad cut Virginia in this old classic mixture that was enhanced in body by unflavored Black Cavendish and bolstered in the flavor department by smoky and smoldering deep Latakia. One of my favorites in the old F&T lineup.

Fribourg & Treyer - 34th Mixture.

My mixture's really coarse, especially some of the Virginia pieces. Sadly it contains a few twigs, too. Because the tin's larger than most 50g ones the tobacco sits loosely, it isn't squeezed and compressed in there! The aroma's like a milder English, but not too puissant.

To me the smoke would suit the often complacently used description 'All Day Smoke'!! The Virginia leads, but doesn't have much of a citrus, sharp, flavour. It's more subdued, and not caustic. This works nicely with the softness from the Black Cavendish. Now, the Latakia: this offers plenty of herbaceous wood, but not much of the archetypal 'smokiness'. Because of the coarse cut the temperature's low, and the good hydration enables a steady burn.

Nicotine: medium. Room-note: quite nice.

34th Mixture? I like it but don't 'love' it. So, three stars:

Recommended.

The usual Kohlhase&Kopp mixture, this time they change the cut, really rough with enormous pieces, but the result is still the same: good tobacco but not exceptional. The usual sweetness is there, the nutty flavour, all the components...nothing new. The packing is a little tricky due to the cut, but the burning proceeds easily. The strenght is medium, suitable for every time of the day. If you liked the other K&K English mixtures you wouldn't go wrong with this one too.

I must admit I was intrigued by Fribourg and Treyers offerings since I knew the brand through nasal snuff.

I was not disappointed by this blend. It had a nice tin aroma, on the smoky side. Its a beautiful multi colored ribbon cut. Moist out of the tin.

I smoked the entire tin in a weeks time and got to know the blend. What was nice is it was a very consistent rich creamy smoke. This was a very well behaved smoke.

I feel like the virginias play the base and the lat plays the guitar.

I would give it 3.5 if that was an option.

Will buy in the future.

This is a light English that has a sweet in-tin aroma. Upon lighting this up I had some problems keeping it going. I found this to be a mild smoke with not much variance of flavor during the entire bowl. I felt as if I wanted more to satisfy my smoke tooth, but I didn't want my next bowl to be of this stuff. Just not a blend for me. There are many other blends out there that are much, much better...Squadron leader being one. If you like a mild english, with a sweetish aroma you could try Walnut.

Although my English palate isn't well-developed, this blend remains one of my favorite tobaccos. It's strong and tastes of complex spice, leather, and a bit of perfumy musk. Definitely worth buying.
