I no longer taste it, but I can still smell it on my fingers, as I've yet to shower since, but have washed my hands with warm water a few times..yet "The Mix" persists.

Edit: I'm finding that a bowl of JKP and 2 bottles of red wine are helping me heal from this ordeal.
LMAO. Booze heals all.

In all seriousness, I was skeptical at first of how horrible everyone was saying this stuff was. Then I opened the pouch and realized I'd never smelled toilet bowl cleaner in a tobacco before. (and I'm being completely serious about that too) It really has to be the most vile and repulsive tobacco I've ever tried. It burns your mouth in places that you've never experienced bit before. It turns out it has lakeland essence in it which is another tobacco that I can't smoke. It truly is the worst tobacco I've ever found.

It was.....well, let's just say it was.

Re: The Dreaded Mixture 79

Yeah, I somehow detected Cavendish in it, and that's probably all it is. It really tried to be tobacco, but the baby powder, diaper cream, Goodyear GT +4 scraps, and "toilet bowl cleaner" as Dave describes it prevailed. It's like the tobacco is in there just screaming "OH WHY GOD, WHY?!?!?!"

I still say that the "Bargain Blend" is far, far worse. Did you try any of that Shannen? If you thought The Mixture was bad, I couldn't even get 3 puffs in to the Bargain Blend.

Not something as a new pipe smoker you would want to smoke. It will ruin your perception of pipe smoking permanently.

.
The words "bargain" and any kind of tobacco product should never be put together in an actual brand or product name - no good could come of it.
Perhaps this should be renamed Mixture 666, it sounds like pure evil.

Re: The Dreaded Mixture 79

No I haven't smoked the bargain blend yet Nate. I've got a fun idea planned out for that one. It's just gonna take a wile for me to get up enough nerve for it. You see, I've been bombed a good number of crap Aros, as well as received a few from free samples from sultif (sp?) So I want to take a day and sit down and do one large "Crap Aros" review. Should be fun, I'm thinking this weekend. No worries though, I'm saving a large bowls worth of the Bargain Blend and sending the rest along with "The Mix" to the next lucky customer.

A lack of preparation on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Re: The Dreaded Mixture 79

I find it hard to believe that all Mixture 79 sales are based on a dare. Some smokers must love it, and there must be quite a few like me who would not seek it out but would not run in fear from it.
