Standard Mixture seeks to blend all the
ingredients that made Dunhill famous. Virginias provide the base and smooth out
the Latakias and Orientals while taming the body. Latakia brings a smokey note,
and the Orientals add some spice. The body should be medium to full, and the
flavor likely is bold.
My bowl burned evenly with only a couple
relights. The citrus, sweetness of the Virginias was most forward on every
puff, but the spice from the Orientals accentuated the citrus while the smoky
Latakia highlighted the sweetness. The balance of this blend is apparent all
the way to the end. I would recommend
this for someone trying to find what the Latakia/Oriental hype is all about.
