After smoking this, it was as though it was the tobacco I had been longing to find. The reviews I had read prior to ordering this were quite consistent and helpful.
The tin aroma is not as smoky as some other Dunhill blends. This is more pungent. Th... Read Moree tobacco is in perfect condition right from the tin. I smoked it almost immediately.
I love both English and VaPers, but the percentages of the mixture are in perfect equilibrium. Initially, the latakia is evident, but then almost magically the virginias appear and the characters are meshed perfectly. The orientals don't impose any sour notes here, something I also relished in this blend.
I had a feeling I would like this one and am glad I finally tried it. An amazing creation! Read Less
In Dunhill fashion, this tobacco is consistent. And probably that's the most special thing about it. It has an excellent ribbon cut, easy to pack and light. stays lit and leaves white ash with no moisture in the bowl. It's components are balanced and... Read More can be smelled in the tin aroma, rome note and in the taste profile.. It is an Oriental/Balkan blend with Cyprian Latakia and what I think might be Izmir. light and red Virginia act as a base but it's a mix of Latakia and oriental leaf. It's a good all day smoke and works well with coffee and tea. Which makes it appealing..

This blend was my education into English pipe tobacco.. Before London Mixture for me there was just aros.. good and bad... mostly bad... I didn't have the gills for it immediately.. I remember feeling green twice in my years of smoking- once from thi... Read Mores and once much earlier from an ill-advised foray into Old Dublin.. Whoa. Weren't ready for either. But London Mixture, through all those years, has remained interesting: spicy, fragrant, ripe, incense-y.. some notes of peanut, though the tin just smells earthy, like forest floor. This and EMP are easily two of the finest light-medium English blends ever made, though this one is slightly richer and more interesting. Read Less
A great English-Oriental blend, with emphasis on spicy Orientals, which play a major role in this mixture. The varieties of Orientals unfold a fan of interesting spices and flavours you will appreciate even more after a few bowls. No bites and peaks,... Read More though. The generously added Virginia contributes tastes of a little hay, ample wood notes and a discreet layer of sweetness. Latakia is always present, accompanying the smoke, never dominant, delivering some leathery smokiness.
As a whole it remains a moderate but still very tasteful, appreciative mixture. It has been among my favourites for decades. As far as I remember, it was stronger and smokier (more Latakia) in the 80s, when it was blended by Murray, what made the blend more English than Oriental. Both ways delicious and perfect for my needs.
You will most certainly enjoy this mixture, if you are an Oriental enthusiast. If you prefer more balanced than spicy varieties of Orientals, go for its sibling, the Dunhill DURBAR mixture. Read Less

Always a real pleasure of sweets and perfumes refined in English, timeless!

Having reviewed this blend in May 2015 it has become my favorite blend of all the Dunhill blends. It's funny how your tastes change over time and for me it has become the go to blend more often than not.
Given Dunhill's reputation, I was surprised to find London Mixture the only one I'd actively pursue. There's no accounting for sensory variations, I guess.

Skillfully blended to highlight the choice Latakia, Virginia, and Turkish tobaccos used in this mixture. Consistent from start to finish. Good straight from the tin, from a pouch, or with a little age on it.
