Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture

​Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture is one of the standards among Virginia/Perique blends. While the Perique is readily apparent, the real stars are the wonderful Virginias, which are carefully matured under pressure and heat to develop a depth of flavor unlike anything else.

Perfect VAPER
There needs to be more stars for this one. The best VAPER out there. The blend is PERFECTLY balanced for my taste. Te Perique is spot on. Always has a special place on my shelf. You cant go wrong with this one.

Reveiw of Dunhill Elizabethan mixture
I like the sweet Virginians, and the touch of perique gives it a tangy zest. All in all: it's a good all day smoke. Caped off with nightcap in the evening makes for a good smoking experience. I have smoked Dunhill pipe tobbacco since I was 19, i am now 48. The one thing I have learned; is, if it says dunhill you can't go wrong.

Excellent Smoke
Typical of Dunhill's excellent blends. A great mid-day smoke, smooth as silk and subtlety flavorful.

An Overlooked Classic
When you think of Dunhill tobacco you immediately think "English" right? But what you can easily forget is that there are other, broader categories of tobacco made by Dunhill. Elizabethan Mixture is a perfect example. Years ago I became aware of the notion that the term "English" doesn't always mean Latakia. When I found L J Peretti house blends, I noticed that they include straight Virginia and VA/Per blends as well under their English heading. It implies that the term can refer to any blend that is absent of classic sweet Black Cavendish, and the fruity, artificial top dressings and sauces of Aromatic blends (which I mostly detest). Elizabethan Mixture is a classic Virginia/Perique blend that is easy to love, and a perfect introduction to anyone who hasn't tasted a VA/Per blend before. It's flavorful and rich, but it's not loaded with Perique so that it's strength is medium, and easy to enjoy as an all day blend. Try a tin and see what else Dunhill does well!

The perfect VaPer
I'm not normally a huge VaPer fan. But this stuff is amazing; just the right amount of perique that is married perfectly with the Virginias.

I ordered three packs of Dunhill tobacco. My order arrived promptly and was packaged excellently. I will certainly be placing another order soon.

A Standard
An excellent Vaper right down the middle.Elizabethan's not going to bowl you over with plum and fig notes like some of the richer Virginia/Perique blends out there but it is very solid with pepper notes and tasty virginia's with a decent amount of strength. A standard as well as nice introduction to folks just getting into Vapers.

One of my favorite VaPers
Elizabethan is one of my favorite Vapers. Easily in my top 5. What sets it apart from the others is that Elizabethan is probably a little heavier in Perique than the others. It is by no means overwhelming, but I would say it is heavier than average contributing a nice spice hit. The Virginia has a nice subtle sweetness to it that perfectly compliments that spice to my palate.

Elizabethan Mixture I Sooo Good
Not a great reviewer, actually my first, but I thoroughly enjoyed this tobacco. An excellent blend of Virginia/Perique. It packed well, lit easily and stayed lit. I cannot compare to the earlier version but this new one will not disapoint you. Recommend you use a dedicated pipe for this. Having over 300 pipes I can pair each tobacco I enjoy to a individual pipe. Enjoy

My least favorite Dunhill..sadly
I wanted to really like this blend...truly. it came off very cigarette like to me. I am a big fan of Dunhill blends and the cut of the tobacco and the moisture were ideal. But I just did not enjoy the actual smoke. But this is my opinion nothing more. And if you really want to give this a try the I encourage you. Cheers.

Love it.
Fantastic. I'll buy this again and again and I would definitely suggest anyone who likes non aromatic blends to try it. I wish this blend came in bulk.

Elizabethan Satisfies
A well balanced smoke that gets better as you smoke. The finish at the very last part of the bowl is somehow even better. I keep some straight Perique to add to weak blends, but for me the Elizabethan is perfect right out of the tin.

Amazing Smoke!
I am still a novice pipe smoker but I can honestly say this have become my "go to" tobacco and ultimately my favorite so far. I have finished two tins and am well into my third. It smokes very smooth with an amazing flavor. It has a peppery taste that tickles my tongue which I enjoy very much. I like how it stays lit from start to finish. I don't think I have ever had to relight. It does pack a bit of a nicotine kick at first but it appears I have outgrown that now. I start my day with a bowl while getting dressed for work then enjoy another two to three bowls at night. I love it. It is a great smoke without all the perfumes and ultra sweet flavors some tobacco has. I would not stray from this mixture for anything. It is a great tobacco to kick back, kick your shoes shoes off and enjoy what pipe smoking is all about. I am sorry I didn't start smoking sooner! Dunhill you indeed have a winner here!

Dunhill Elizabethan: Fit for a King
This fantastic VA/Per blend is one of my two favorites and I smoke a bowlful almost every single day ... many among us who offer reviews comment on distinct tastes and aromas they can detect, but sadly, I'm not among them ... my take is that this blend tastes like some of the best pipe tobacco it has ever been my pleasure to set a flame to with no conflicting hints of chocolate, leather, or pine trees and for that, I am highly thankful.

Put this one in a class by itself
I love this pipe tobacco - absolutely one of my favorites. Seems most Dunhill pipe tobacco's are really good. I always have a few tins of Elizabethian Mixture on hand.
5 out of 5
Not Latakia
This is the usual high class cut of tobacco and is probably really good if you are more perique oriented, and now I have tasted it I know that my preference is for Latakia which is good to know.

Elizabethan Mixture
I don't know how this compares to the original, but this is a perfect balance of quality Virginia tobacco's mixed with a lesser amount of quality Perique. Just the rich taste of good tobacco

Very smooth
I enjoy Dunhill's Elizabethan mixture when I'm in the mood for a smooth, relaxing blend. Great aroma, no bite, and not overly strong.

Virginian English experience.
An old standby in my rotation. A nice medium Virginian smoke.

Dunhill Elizabethan
This is a very good Vaper. I had very high hopes when I got my tin in the mail because I'd read so many glowing reviews about it. Like I said, it was very good with typical Vaper flavors. The nicotine content is pretty high. If you're a nocotine lightweight you may want to smoke this in a small bowled pipe starting off. I'm not a lightweight and I can feel it. At least as strong as Nightcap, if not a touch stronger. It hasn't unseated St. James Flake or Escudo for my #1 and #2 Vapers, but it is very good nonetheless.
Customer Testimonials
As a fairly new non-aromatic smoker, this is my first VaPer and first Dunhill tobacco, and it has become my overall favorite. The Virginias are subtle but savory, and while the Perique is a bit in the background, you can experience it more fully by "snorking" from the back of the mouth and out the nose, which will result in a heavenly smoke.
This blend has earned itself a place on my tobacco shelf. Out of the tin it was a little damp for me, but easy fix after letting it sit out for a while. I did have better luck taste wise out of one of my corn cobs. All around good smoke for all day. For me the sweetness came in on the inhale, with a light peppery after taste. More Perique would be nice but do not fix what isn't broken.
This was my very first "AHHA !!" Tin of tobacco, as a novice pipe smoker. It was strong, rich, with enough spice to make it tasty. I've now got oodles of different versions of tin and bulk Virginia and VA/PER blends on the way, to fine tune my preferences. Plus, six tins of Elizabethan Mixture. One for now, and five for the cellar, for special occasions. Try it.
My absolute favorite blend thus far. I've had several va/pers and this tops them all. I will definitely be purchasing more of this. Highly recommended!
This disappointing attempt to recapture the original Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture misses by light years. It is flat, bland, & utterly without character. The original Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture was a strong Virginia/Perique blend that was salty & tangy. The current version bears no resemblance to the original. Try Hearth & Home's Louisiana Red first!
It had been several years since i had smoked Dunhill EM. 20 plus I would say. I remember I did not like it then, but the fact of the matter is that back then 20 -30 years ago I would not smoke anything that did not smell like a fruit stand or did not come out of a red can(Velvet). After many years of smoking a variety of tobaccos my taste has changed, for the better I think. I opened my pipe tobacco of the month care package and much to my surprise there it was, EM. Well guess I will give it another shot! Tin note--- wonderful. Moisture--- just right. Char light-- Good note. Next light and all through the bowl-- Pleasure, Pleasure, Pleasure! How could i have abandoned this so many years ago? I give this a 4 out of 4. Like all Dunhill tobacco it is well worth a try. Great smoke, glad you sent it along. This will be in my regular rotation. VA-Per at its finest!
I love this blend. I've got 3 tins aging while I keep a few on hand to smoke. It packs easily with a low moisture level but not bone dry. It lights up and burns evenly, dry and cool. It has a flavor akin to a bold coffee with a nutty nuance. It develops a light sweetness both in flavor and aroma as it burns from the initial light which produces a very satisfying smoke. I've smoked this in several pipes, large to small and it has always been fantastic.
very good taste, just needs a bit more perique, 3 1/2 stars
Light, clean Virginia blend. Was hoping for a bit more Perique, but being a ribbon cut it packs and burns easily with a light sweetness.
