Dunhill My Mixture 965


This item is no longer available for purchase.
See similar items below.

​Of all of the Dunhill tobaccos, My Mixture 965 is a true classic, even having been inducted into the Pipe Tobacco Hall of Fame. Great Virginias are blended with select Macedonian Orientals and a good amount of rich Latakia. What sets 965 apart is the addition of brown Cavendish, which deepens the blend and adds a subtle hint of mellow sweetness.

Excellent tobacco. Although I don't
Excellent tobacco. Although I don't as much as I used to, I smoke only Dunhill tobacco. I wish I had tried these tins 30 years ago. London Mixture is still my favorite. Perfectly balanced.

Good, consistent smoke
Another great one in the Dunhill line but I favor The Early Morning Pipe of theirs most. Another good consistent, flavorful smoke and excellent with a good bourbon.

Really Nice
Real smooth flavor with a good mouth feel. Made me feel oldschool while sitting on the back porch enjoying this tobacco. I will buy some more before it is no longer available.

Dunhill MM 965
A fine blend of premium tobaccos. Not the Murray era blend but still a wonderful smoking experience. The tobaccos work together to provide a sweet and complex flavor.

Sad to see this go... :(
This is one of the classics! So sad to hear that Dunhill is retiring this line of tobacco, as it has become one of my favorites.

Pretty good
Take this review with a grain of salt, I’m fairly new to English blends and pipe smoking in general. I don’t mind I full flavored tobacco, but I just don’t get much more than a standard English here. It’s good, and it smokes ok, but I won’t go out of my way to buy it again. Arrived wet, had to dry overnight on a paper towel to get it where I wanted it (American South, humidity).

A great mild English blend
965 is a great tasting English mix that is mild yet flavorful. I thought it was a good morning smoke with some coffee. Or an afternoon smoke with some strong stout beer like Guinness

Fantastic blend
This is my first real English blend and I was taken back by how much I really enjoyed it. It came in the tin at just the right moisture and it smoked just right. The fine Dunhill ribbon cut is easily packed and burns at just the right pace. It is truly unfortunate that we are having to say goodbye to the company but I hope that I can find a good match for this blend so I can keep smoking it!

very pleasant
Just had a nice fresh bowl in my Savinelli with a cup of coffee. It was very good. Glad I tried this blend. It doesn't bite. It's warm and has just enough spice to sweet mixture. Give it a try. It's worth it.

Great classic
The Dunhill 965 is a good smoke and I use it almost exclusively to “break in” a new pipe. It smokes dry and has a pleasant flavor with no bite.

Ordered this after reading reviews online. Arrived in a few days - always best service from P&C. Great tobacco- no bite and great room note. My new go to.

Good way to start the day
I found My Dunhill Mixture 965 to be more robust than Early Morning Pope. A more satisfying smoke for a better start to my day.

Smells like a fireplace...
Turns out the smell of latakia repulses me, I'm sensitive to 'campfire/fireplace' smells and it just turns me off, I'll cellar it for a few years but I'm going to guess I will never want to smoke it. What I get for not researching different types of tobacco for my first order.

Milder than Night Cap
Milder than Night Cap and a great all around smoke. If you find Night Cap to be overpowering, then, back it off a notch and try Mixture 965. Also found that Balkan Supreme, IMO, is very close to 965 in every way, I wouldn't choose one over the other. Nothing aeromatic about this one, but, if you're looking to please yourself to a great smoke, try it, you won't regret it. Thanks again P & C

An Classic that never disappoints!
This is a longtime favorite of mine. The current tin I'm enjoying is from '06. I load up a massive bowlful in my Mr. Brog Yerba Mate pipe and know I'm in for an evening of rich, latakia-laced smoke. The complexity and hint of sweetness never get old. Even my wife enjoys the room note.

Stepping Stone
I am enjoying this blend very much, I have to say that this is the first English blend I truly enjoyed. disclaimer- I am new to pipes and tobacco. I have mentioned before that I started this hobby with a few (too many) ounces of Lane BCA, not a bad blend, but one that grew old too fast. I had tried Nightcap and Elizabethan mixture, which although are great blends, did not register well with me. Mixture 965 however I think has helped me grasp the intricacies of an English blend. There was the creamy and sweet notes given by this blend's inclusion of Cavendish, but did not drown out the latakias and orientals (though I'm still learning how to identify those). All in all, I think for a piper willing to start on English blends, this would be a great stepping stone. Would purchase again and recommend.

Pleasently surprised
Being an aromatic tobacco smoker for many decades, I was a little reluctant to try an English blend. I now realize that I was mistaken. My Mixture 965 was a pleasant surprise from the very first bowl full. Cool smoking and great tasting. I will definitely buy this tobacco again.

Short Learning Curve
I first thought this was an unremarkable blend, but the I had never bought tinned tobacco before. After trying another bowl after the tin had been opened, I got a serious lesson in tobacco aging as the next two bowls were far nicer. A more distinctive Latakia note without the alkali aftertaste I had experienced before. BUT WAIT-- I had also bought a tin of Hearth & Home Marquee WhiteKnight, intrigued by the Balkan Sobranie Original Smoking Mixture story. A different blend from 965, but very nice as well. I also had half an ounce of Lane BS-005, so.... Yup: I decanted all three and blended them in a glass jar and let 'em sit a week. Well! Now we have an extremely complex smoke, very English in character and soothing to the soul. It is heavy in smoky Latakia taste with the fullness of the Western components and yet waaaay in the back sits the Oriental/Turkish leaves like a note of nutmeg. Wonderful! So: two tins each of 965 and WhiteKmight, one ounce of BS-005; throw into a glass jar, blend well (I used a kitchen fork) and ignore for as long as you can manage. Might even buy a largish tin, pack the blend tight and store in the basement a year to see how it compares to the young stuff. Even if you're not psychotic like me, the Dunhill will please.

Close, But No Er--
Rich all right, but a touch flat-tasting to me, with an alkali hint, not as complex as I had expected. Still, if I was out of tobacco, and a friend offerred me some, I'd load up in a heartbeat rather than stop at the drug store for some Cherry Blend... ;)

Wonderful stuff!
So glad they brought this and all the old classics back. Aperitif was my favorite, but this has it beat out as my new favorite. It's so nice and mellow when I want a milder smoke. Great prep, pack, burn, note, fisrt light and a nice slow burner, with little to no fodder. Just enough black cav to sweeten it down while cutting the bite. Wish I could truly claim it as "My" mixture! Wonderful stuff, Dunhill! Just wonderful.

One of the Best
I have been smoking a pipe since my university days. Over the past fifty years now I have tried a lot of different tobacco blends. Beginning originally with the sweet stuff like Flying Dutchman, I have matured and my taste has evolved and I've settled on various English blends. This is truly one of the best and I will continue with it.
5 out of 5
Amazing choice.
The flavor that My Mixture 965 offers is one of the perfect representations of a Latakia-infused blend, in my opinion. It never disappoints!

My friend calls it "Dungheap"... I COULDN'T DISAGREE MORE!
With 965, Dunhill created a true classic and I absolutely love it. It's perfect any day, all day and will be a regular item in my shopping cart. Thank you, Dunhill!

A little sweet and smokey...
...but not like the tiny little cocktail hot dogs, thank goodness. I bought this tin along with the Nightcap and Early morning mixture in order to compare and contrast, and get into the Dunhill blends. This one surprisingly ended up my favorite of the three. Though I'm not a die hard English smoker; I do love some good aromatics from time to time, I tend to gravitate more towards smokey blends for daily smokes. This blend was a solid compromise between the two. The added benefit was the pleasing room note for the non-smokers in my life. I feel like it's a guilty pleasure, but not guilty enough to cause me to smoke it in private. I will be purchasing more of this in the near future!

Great first English
If you're looking to broaden your smoking palate and try an English style tobacco, you can't go wrong with this one. I just branched out from aromatics and this is by far the easiest step into the English realm. If you're on the fence, this is the one to pick. This is my new favorite smoke.

My Mixture 965 is a Winner!!
I purchased the King of the Dunhill Sampler which included a 1.76oz can of My Mixture 965 and I must say that I am quite taken by this one. I particularly enjoyed the Nightcap tin and I thought that it was my favorite until my second bowl of My Mixture 965. VERY pleasant room note. Not an overpowering flavor... just right really. I quite like the mix of the Cavendish, Latakia & Oriental in this one. Latakia can be a bit strong but I like it like that. 965 was a great surprise. Next time I will definitely be ordering bulk.

Very high quality pipe tobacco. You know you're getting you monies worth too, they pack as much as they can into the tin.

My palate isn't sophisticated enough to describe everything in this mixture, but if you leave me on a deserted island, leave me with this.

Another nice Dunhill Tobacco
I really like 965. It is almost a cross between EMP and Nightcap. Very fragrant in the tin, and smokes great.

It grows on you...maybe
I would say MM965 falls somewhere in the middle of the pack as far as English blends are concerned. I think it might benefit from either some aging or drying out (or both), as I am about halfway through the tin and only now am I starting to notice the perfumed-smoky Latakia note that I typically associate with my favorite English's. The shaggy cut is also very quick-burning, before you know it the bowl is finished. For the time being, "Durbar" remains my preferred Dunhill.

Not a fan
Let me get this out right here in the open. I’m 50, drink smoky peaty Islay malts and drink my coffee black. I like gin martinis and bold heavy cigars. However, I don’t think I’m grown up enough for this 965. It’s bold, it’s smoky, it’s got a lot of flavor going on. It’s like rolling up a steak, sprinkling it with peat and setting it on fire. If you’re into that (and from what I can tell a lot of people are) you’ll probably love this leaf. Me, I’ll take a sweet Virginia or VaPer over this and wait for my testicles to drop before I try this again.

965
A balanced mixture that's easy on the palate and quite strong. Campfires, Leather and a nice smokey sweetness. The Macedonian orientals are quite pronounced and very satisfying on the retrohale. An excellent blend that well deserves its classic status.

A Truly Great Old Classic For Good Reason.
Everybody knows about Dunhill tobaccos. They are often thought of as the most classic, standard of the English tobacco blends. World renowned. Your Grandfathers Go-To English. But in this current world of pipe tobacco, new blends seem to be offered every other day. Many, like me, quickly buy these new iterations as fast as we can to stay on top of what's new, searching for, perhaps, the perfect blend. Things like Dunhill My Mixture 965 can be forgotten. Lost in the shuffle of too many choices, and too many tins of tobacco to smoke all the time. After seeing a vintage tin sitting on the writing desk of famed American author James Faulkner (on an episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown) I was intrigued to try a tin again to revisit this old standard. If your Grandfather smoked 965 often then your Grandfather really knew what he was doing. Opening the tin I was presented with a bouquet of English tobacco aromas. The ribbons were moist but not wet, and took to the flame with ease. The taste is simply stated Classic. Perfect! Exactly what I expect a great English blend to taste like. Full in flavor, but never harsh, with a medium to light nicotine touch. The PERFECT all-day smoke for English lovers. Other Dunhill classics have their devotees, like Early Morning Pipe or Standard Mixture, and they're all great as well. I recently rediscovered how wonderful Elizabethan Mixture is as I took a journey relearning about VA/PER tobaccos. I have no point of reference for what 965 USED to be, or tasted like. I can only judge it as it is currently offered. It comes down to this. If it was James Faulkners favorite blend, then it' great enough for me. Stock up on this one ASAP!!

PURE GARBAGE!
After reading reviews based on Orlicks as opposed to Murrays VERSIONS of 965,,,Well I figured I'd give it a shot.... I have had the pleasure of smoking Murray's back in the day,,,this NEW orlick 965 is pure garbage! Tastes like cigarette smoke,,NO COMPARISON at all...everything is lost compared to Murrays version. Try Mc Cleelands 9to5 , or even "Sunjammer" both getting a lot closer to the real deal...I am throwing this in the trash,,,would not insult another pipe smoker by giving it away. If you like cigarettes and want to roll your own then perhaps this blend would be suitable for you....

There is 965 and then there is everything else
Have been smoking 965 since 1967. Occasionally try other blends, but they disappoint and I go right back to 965. Don't know what's in it except for Latakia, Cavendish and Virginia and in what proportions, but Dunhill has been doing it right for 100 years. The quintessential English. Not too strong, not too mild. Nutty flavor. Great nasal and room aroma. Relaxing and satisfying more than a glass of wine. OMG is it good.

Review of Dunhill My Mixture 965

Get it tinned and don't let it dry out!
Just bought my first tin of 965 after reading all the rave reviews and I must say, 965 deserves every one of them. I was advised to let the tin dry out a bit - but boy, that was a big mistake! The tin note upon opening was that famous ketchup-y smell, but also a little mustiness that I can't quite identify. Regardless, I found the tin note enticing and although the tobacco was a little moist, I smoked a bowl anyway. Wonderful smokey Latakia was right out front quickly followed up with a leathery and almost oily note. A surprising amount of sweetness - but not too much, and a delicious tangy finish that I found disappears if you let the tobacco dry out too much - as I did! Unfortunately, I let the rest of the tin dry out too much so I only had that first bowl full with all its rich flavors. Next time i'm buying a few extra tins and setting a couple back to age a little - i have a feeling that the 965 will age well, and this time, I won't let it dry out!

My No. 1
This is my everyday go-to blend. The tobacco in the tin has an amazing aroma. The flavors are delicious, and the smoke is smooth and cool. Who needs an aromatic when one can enjoy all the flavors that the tobacco itself has to offer? When "sipped," this mixture is delightful.

One of the Greats
My regular English blends are Dunhill Standard and Gawith Squadron Leader. But when I want a little more oomph, I reach for Dunhill 965. It’s a medium/full blend of Virginias, Orientals, Cavendish, and Latakia, and for me it hits all the right notes. Dark, round, spicy, and smokey. Great after a meal, or when binge watching back episodes of NCIS. It is often called a Scottish blend (and English with some cavendish thrown in), and I could certainly see myself to help recuperate from a dish of haggis. One of my favorites.

For the experienced piper...
Nice leathery, woodsmoke taste but it was a bit too powerful for my liking. Lots a nicotine in this which some may like but it made the room spin on me! No tongue bite. Definitely for the experienced smoker.

New daily smoke
This has become my new go-to daily weed. I still consider myself a novice pipe smoker (2 years), and I'm starting to break away from super-mellow Cavendish blends. This was a welcome transition into something else. It's inexpensive here (never buy at a local tobacconist; $15 markup from P&C's price), and is always delicious whether in morning time or evening. Smokes fairly cool and long. Not going to pretend I know too much just yet, but all's I can say is I heartily recommend it.

i just started smoking pipes, but I can tell you 965 packs a punch in both strength and flavor! Definitely one of my favorite smokes
Customer Testimonials
Not for the faint of heart is what I'll say on this. Maybe it's just my tolerance but I find this respectably full BUT I will say this is a great blend. It's very flavorful rich and smooth for a "medium full" bodied tobacco. If you like a no nonsense good mix this is for you
DG of West Springfield, MA
Greetings my Friends, I wanted you to know how very quickly my shipment arrived. I can't wait to try this blend (MM 965) as well as many other Dunhill and other mixtures from your firm. I am so delighted you are there, and wish you all the best. Dr. M
DM of Las Vegas, NV
It's a nice, mild smoke. Burns reasonably well right from the opening of the tin. Subtle finish. Does not overpower. I enjoyed it quite a lot.
DH of Ogdensburg, NY
Good smoke. Didn't enjoy it as nearly as the hype for it forecasted.
AN of Gainesville, FL
Very good tobacco.Classic English with a clean taste. High class all the way. A must try for all enthusiasts.
GP of Lake George, NY
Just like I remembered it 30 years ago. Got away from latakia blends but this brought me back, great tin aroma and nice room aroma. Easy on the tounge .
EB of Malta, NY
This blend is absolutely delicious! It is smooth, nutty, and semi sweet!
AR of Brownhelm Township, OH
To start with this is a medium to light English blend. I'm not a huge fan of Latakia because most blends I have tried the Latakia has been quite overpowering but with this blend the Latakia doesn't overpower the other flavors but seem to compliment them. even if you don't usually smoke English blends I would suggest giving this one a try. I believe this tobacco will appeal to a wider range of smokers than is usual for most English blends.
JC of peru, NY
Probably my favorite Dunhill. While I enjoy Nightcap, this is a great all day smoke. Smooth, flavorful and a great room note. Bulk is as good as tin.
JH of Lagrange, GA
This is my all time favorite blend. I smoke it year round!
JS of Midland, TX
Very heavy and full flavor. Good complexity. Not for the faint of heart or empty stomach. Makes a better night excursion. Packs too much of a punch for lunch and if taken in too quickly can make you light headed.
KL of Steubenville, OH
I just cracked open this tin I purchased a while back and now I am sorry I waited! Subtle flavors and scents throughout my initial smoke have led me to consider this as one of my top five blends. Hints of cedar, incense, and peat make for fine room notes. Flavors include rich notes of coffee, toasted walnut, and even a slight hint of single-malt scotch. I'm thinking of buying bulk when this tin runs out.
JW of TRAVERSE CITY, MI
A flavor reminiscent of Dunhill London Mix, which is the gold standard of English mixes for me, but lighter and milder in flavor. It's a good choice for a primary tobacco, and then enjoy your special blends at your leisure.
RB of Steele, AL
Nice blend, I'm learning to love it a little alien to my taste but every time i smoke it i notice suddle nuances of flavor then nutty aspect is somewhat of a mystery in a enigma but im waiting to expand my knowledge upon its flavors :D by the way second type of tobacco I've ever tried I'm a newbie if you will and my first blend was an aromatic house blend at my pipe shop.
