Dunhill's My Mixture 965 is for the connoisseurs of full bodied tobacco.
Choicest small Latakia imparts a rich nutty flavor and coolness. Brown Cavendish completes this blend beloved by English mixture aficionados.
Denoument: The end is approaching and there is still no sign of sour, bitter or ashy taste.
Relights become a bit more frequent but not because of any moisture - I don't dump the ashes at all as there is very little produced and I like to coat the bowl with them (by shaking the pipe with a cleaner in it and the bowl covered with my thumb) and I think this also helps it burn cooler.
The Story: Midway down the bowl a sharpness appears; far from unpleasant, this shows up as a tickle on the palate and a spicy flavor that I (when I first tried it) mimics incipient bite. Stop puffing for a minute and it fades gently, leaving only a pleasant aftertaste.
The flavor changes very little as the bowl is smoked, only increasing slightly in heaviness and sharpness.
Taking my time, though, produces just enough warmth and moisture to bring out the flavor and my pipe never gets more than warm to the touch. The room aroma is heavy and natural and seems unwanted my most non-smokers indoors.
The aroma hardly changes, and the sidestream smoke from the bowl remains sweet and nutty - if I had an Oom-Paul, I'd reserve it for this.Notes: In the early times and until 70s, it was produced by Dunhill, England. Now is made by Orlik, Denmark, a Company of the Scandinavian Tobacco Group. Pouch Aroma: Rich, smoky and leathery, this tobacco is touted as 'the finest smoking mixture in the world' by Dunhill.I don't know about that, but between the Latakia and Orientals in it I can sniff my jar for a while before I get around to lighting up.There's twice the taste in this and in London Mixture than in ANY aromatic, and it is a TRUE taste, the taste of real tobacco...I also tend to recommend it to beginners: in my opinion, it is a much better choice than the usual drugstore tobaccos, or than the ultra-classic Early Morning Pipe.

The neat thing is that what it unifies /into/ seems to change with my moods and which pipe I smoke it in.
