Mac Baren Mixture was introduced to the market in 1958. Since then it has achieved the status of a classic. Mixture was the main source of inspiration for the work that went into developing Mixture Modern. Our tobacco master wished to develop a pipe tobacco with a flavour and aroma akin to Mixture, but which was milder and was made with current trends in mind. Mixture Modern was developed to create a natural, mild way for pipe smokers to make the acquaintance of the Mixture family.
Mixture Modern has retained much of the flavour experience that Mixture has imparted to pipe smokers over the last four decades, but with a more mild contemporary taste. Stringent demands were placed not only on the blend of tobacco leaves but also how the tobacco should be cut. One of the changes that have been made is to remove the Original Cavendish and replace it with the milder Modern Cavendish. Besides being milder it gives the blend a light, sweet taste with just the slightest hint of tanginess.
The larger part of the tobacco leaves in Mixture Modern are loose cut, which makes Mixture Modern easy to fill. Mixture Modern also contains Ready Rubbed tobacco, with all else being equal makes the blend burn more slowly. As with Mixture, the taste is just one of nuances. The composition of the mild tobaccos makes Mixture Modern a mild, pleasant smoking experience. Others will find the mild, aromatic fragrance quite pleasant as it spreads throughout the room. Mixture Modern goes into your pipe exceptionally easy, and it smokes trouble-free. (shipping weight 1 lb)
