The Mixture is in a way the perfect English blend. That is, it is quintessentially English, right down the middle of the English road. The blend includes a bit of latakia, what Dunhill calls "orientals", along with some Carolina Gold and Georgian tobacco (Virginias). The result is a medium-full, lightly toasted and nicely nutty flavor. I'm glad there are no burleys, since that would have lent a more acrid walnut note; the nuttiness is a more of a toasted almond. The latakia lends a bit of weight, the flavor rounds out very nicely and although it fades unlingeringly, it certainly does not bite at all.
