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.

My Favorite
I've been on the pipe for some years now but I decided to light it up again. After smoking some of my older tobaccos that didn't age Well,im I decided I ought to revisit this gem after having gone through several tins back when. This stuff is still perfect and I think it might be the only tobacco I'll ever need.

Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture
Wonderful blend! Virginias are sweet and are perfectly complimented by the added perique. I am fairly new to pipe smoking, but this is the best VaPer blend I have tried to date.

Delicious. Citrus sweetness and spice are the main flavors I get, which really dance well on my palet. Love this blend

Elizabethan Buzz
Nice smoke, but not for the new pipe smoker. Heavy nicotine buzz, so don't smoke it too quickly. Burns really well right out of the can. not sure why they ruined the tin art with the "SMOKING KILLS" label, which takes up half of the tin.

Wonderful blendnd
Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture is a wonderful blend. You just cant go wrong with this blend, unless you simply refuse to try it, but that would be a mistake now wouldn't it. Cheers

A Great Tobacco that will be Sorely Missed!
It is very unfortunate that this tobacco will not be around much longer with Dunhill's announcement to close this portion of their business. Very sad indeed, because I must say, I will greatly miss this perfect blend of tobacco! A delightfully smooth and enjoyable smoke with just the right mixture of Virginias and Perique! For those who enjoy English blends and the aroma of tobacco, this would serve you well.

A Pleasant Surprise.
Another Dunhill blend I'd been sitting on for a while as I'm not much of a perique person. The tin is now empty and I'll be getting more. This was, indeed, a pleasant surprise.

Excellent VaPer!! But it's better with some age.
I have read many reviews where people claim to go from not liking this blend, to downright hating it, but I am not one of those people. A certain YouTuber sang the praises of this tobacco so much that I had to see what all the fuss was about. I'll admit, my first bowl of Elizabethan didn't leave a good impression at all....so much that I considered sending it to a friend. I held off on that, and jarred it up...storing it for a few months. One day I decided to revisit this to give it a more fair shot, and was I ever glad that I did. Spending a few months in a sealed jar did WONDERS for this blend!! Whereas the first bowl assaulted me with a black pepper tasting hot smoke....this time around I was greeted with an incredible sweetness with just the right amount of spice. The body of the smoke was full, but not overwhelming, and the nicotine hit was intense..(do NOT smoke this on an empty stomach). This second time around, the Perique was less peppery, and more raisin flavored. I found that I was able to get the best experience out of this from a Churchwarden, but as this blend's biggest YouTube fan would say, "Your mileage may vary". I have a small stockpile of this that I'll hold onto, since Dunhill has announced that production of all Dunhill blends has ceased, and I'll dip into them as the years go by. I would highly recommend that you at least give this a shot before it's gone forever, but do yourself a favor and put a little ago on it. You won't be disappointed.

Elizabethan just doesn’t do it for me
Not sure about all the hype with this one. Lit ok and slow burning for the most part, but I got zero flavor from it personally. Gonna store it for awhile and try coming back to it. I am a new smoker so maybe my expectations were a little high, I was very disappointed overall.

Good smoke
I have several blends so I don't choose this one often. But today something took my memory away for longer than usual. After pondering on this thought it came to me I packed ELizabethan for after lunch bowl. Must be the perique other reviews mention. To all newbies give yourself a couple years of two to four bowls a day and you may know what I mean. I ordered more.

Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture
The Elizabethan Mixture is a well constructed blend. I found it mild but flavorful. The burn was continuous and when packing, it stayed put.

Overall a Great Smoke
True to the Dunhill name, a Great smoke, Uniform ribbon cut of Bright & Dark Va's Full body smoke W/O being over powering, Easy to pack, burns well, no bite. A great all day smoke.

Great, but be careful
One of my favorite blends. The depth of the Virginias starts with bright notes and ends with deep, bready, malty sweetness. The perique adds a wonderful spice that tastes like makes the blend taste like a spiced autumn bread. The only downside is this blend WILL give you a nicotine buzz, so start with a small bowl on a full stomach and go from there.

Cigarette-esque, light flavor....
I am by no means, an expert in pipe smoking but.. I do have many years as a cigarette smoker. When I opened the tin I took a good healthy sniff and it instantly reminded me of a fresh pack of Marlboros. I packed it in my MM Corn Cob to about the draw consistency of a thin milkshake and fired up. To me it reminds me of a quality cigarette tobacco! Smell and taste are definite "step up" in potency than cigarette tobacco but it was a decent smoke! Coming from the Cigarette world, it's not really what i was looking for in a pipe tobacco. I also use e-cigs and got to know how high levels of nicotine react in the mouth... gives you a short-lived tingle on your tongue, lips and cheeks... Dunhill E.M. gives me that 'tingle' so I believe this to be a HIGH nicotine blend!-- The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is it seemed to burn REALLY hot in my Corn Cob versus other tobacco blends I've been smoking.

"Just not for me"
*New pipe smoker* This blend, at first, was not appealing. The smell and taste reminded me too heavily of cigarettes. I wanted to enjoy this blend being a new fan of Dunhill (and all pipe smoking) and having seen some of the reviews. I am not sure if VaPer is for me, but I have thrown this blend in a jar and will revisit it in the future. Would much prefer my tins worth be turned into 965 or Nightcap. This one is just not for me.

Outstanding
This is an outstanding tobacco. Everything that is to be said has been covered by the plethora of other reviews. I am usually an aromatic person when it comes to pipe tobacco but this stuff is just an awesome tasting tobacco all around. Not sweet, but not cigarette like either. And the parique is not super strong so it won't burn your tongue. Ive smoked this out of even a cheap drug store pipe and it was awesome. I mix it with royal yacht which has quickly become one of my favorite things to smoke. If you even think you might like this, I would encourage you to try it. You will not be disappointed.

I do not have anything to compare this to' purchased it based on reviews. It loads well, burns well, but the flavours just are not there for me. Guess I just expected more from a Dunhill product. Sorry guy's.

Good But Where Is The Perique?
Very smooth and mild blend with fine Virginias with no bite. I would highly recommend this blend for newbies who wish to try their first VA/PER, however for a seasoned old codger like me , I can't detect any Perique.

Okay I'm in love!! I know a lot of people are too with this blend and I'm glad to be a part of the love. I smoke this daily great all day smoke. It has such a clean finish all the way down the bowl. But I must say at the end the Perique is towards the front but you'll enjoy it trust me.

Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture Review
I'm fairly new to pipe smoking, but have smoke a few different kinds of tobacco. This is definitely a stronger mixture. It makes me a bit light headed lol. But overall it is a very good smoke. It reminds me of a cigar. Just maybe not as strong as a real cigar by definitely gives me a similar kind of feel and taste. Doesn't burn too hot and stays lit well. I give it 4 stars because it is a bit harsh if you are just starting pipe smoking but that's probably just me. Good tobacco though!

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.

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

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.
