Mixture No. 79: Mixture No. 79 1.5oz
Product Number: 003-804-0001
Produced by Sutliff, Mixture No. 79 was first released in 1933 and has become one of the blending house's flagship mixtures. An extraordinary blend of toasted Burley cased with hints of anise, whisky, and natural vanilla, this old-school Aromatic has maintained its position among the most popular pipe tobacco in the United States for decades. In fact, Sutliff's Richmond tobacco factory was originally designed and constructed more than 65 years ago for the dedicated purpose of manufacturing this singular blend.
Unlike other Aromatics, the Burley for Mixture No. 79 isn't dipped or sprayed with casing; it's fully submerged in flavoring and dried over an extended period on a proprietary 60-foot bed dryer in order to caramelize the leaf and enhance its delicious top notes. Sutliff is the only modern manufacturer to use this specialized, time-consuming method of applying flavoring, resulting in a unique, incredibly rich, complex, single-component blend, reminiscent of bygone eras: A testament to the blending house's commitment to the same quality and consistency today as decades ago.
