Dunhill Standard Mixture Mild
Quick half a bowl of SMM after smoking FM all day. This was the first Dunhill I ever tried. I have no idea how old it is. I found it at a B&M sitting there all dusty and neglected. That was about 6 months ago.
The aroma in the jar is less intense than a lot of english blends I've smelled. Good standard english aroma. A little tangy and smokey.
This lights easily and stays lit with slow steady puffing. Good flavors. A little sweetness from the virginias. Anise and smokiness from the latakia and just a small touch of orientals to give it a bit of tang. Ever so slight touch of bite to it.
For someone just getting into english blends, I'd highly recommend Standard Mixture Mild. (Which is now Mellow) Nice introduction to english!
It was.....well, let's just say it was.
