MATCH Brindley's Mixture

This is a match to the old Brindley's Mixture. Mellow white Burley is combined with golden, ripe Virginias and a calmly-sweet, fruity top note for a subtle aroma.  The original was somewhat obscure, but those who were able to get it tended to be loyal fans. MATCH - Brindley's Mixture is definitely an all-day type of semi-aromatic blend.

An important but missing ingredient
I smoked this for a full year and was addicted to it. So, I am familiar with the original, and as I "remember" I was able to get it even while in my dotage. It is, and so is the match, a burley/VA blend. It is lightly topped lightly with something, lights easily and burns well. By and large the Match is a no bite all day blend. But here's the rub. IMHO the "something" mentioned above is just plain wrong. I don't know if the Match is modeled after the "green" aromatic or the "orange" non aromatic (referring to the pouch color, I am only familiar with the orange, and this is giving me a problem with the Match version In the orange version the blend was seasoned with deer tongue (a.k.a. saxafragus). Those were the pieces of green stuff (a.k.a. "what the hell is that?" stuff. To me, the deer tongue gave the blend it's pouch aroma and contributed to the taste of the original. I do enjoy the Match. It is a good blend, but it just ain't Brindleys.

Brindley’s Mixture Match Blend 👍
I love this blend. I was intrigued by it being a match of Moe Howard’s favorite. The Brindley’s Mixture is gone, I never tried it. The aroma from this bag is very heavy Latakia, like two fingers poking you in the eyes. It smokes very smooth and pleasant. The very last of the bowl was sweet vanilla to me. I read a review that said this match was more like oranges than marshmallows, but I didn’t get that. Based on the description of the original I expected a little more marshmallow. At any rate I will buy and smoke a great deal of this as long as I can get it.

Buy it, you’ll thank me...
I have been piping for 39 years. Brindley’s Mixture has become my favorite blend. It is relaxing in a way that burley blends can be, yet it’s not one dimensional. There’s enough Latakia to spice things up, and the light marshmallow topping weaves in and out. Just delicious. Buy some!

Down the Middle
Never smoked original but I judge tobacco (and beer) for what it is, not what I want it to be. I like the aroma and taste. But I do have trouble keeping it burning. I haven't had any tongue bite even when pulling hard on it. It's not a great tobacco but I do like it and will order more in the future.

This stuff is excellent. Similar to Holiday, though with a bit more Latakia and no Perique. The tobaccos are first-rate, and are balanced very well. The topping is sweet, but faint. The room note is spicy-sweet. I wish I'd had this years ago.

Match Brindley's mixture
It's been so many years since I've had the real 'Brindley's' that its hard to tell ... but this seems to be as close to the original as I can imagine you can make it.

Nice to have...
This is a nice remembrance of a long ago tobacco I used to be able to buy at the 'drug store.' Good basic mixture for that ever important change of pace in our daily lives.
