Mixture No. 79: Mixture No. 79 1.5oz Pipe Tobacco

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.

Don't understand the hate
December 06, 2018
Product: Mixture No. 79 Mixture No. 79 1.5oz
I can't understand why everyone seems to hate this blend so much. Yes, taste is a very personal thing, but negativity is so prevalent that it cannot be justified - at least to me. Certainly an all day smoke, with a flowery aroma one can only get the ... Read More

I respectfully disagree on the low rating for this tobacco. 1st time I tried it, it's quite way different than all aromatics out there. I know this is probably the most polizing blend if all time. But please hear me out. Smoke this blend for 3-4 day... Read More

This is quite like the bulk version, except the aromatic flavors are stronger and it's a bit more moist. An excellent blend that pipers should try.

I bought six pouches of this stuff just over two years ago and never tried it, never did anything with it, so it's just been sitting in my cellar. By chance I decide to give it a whirl today, and it's great. I've been missing out. It's really good. I... Read More

Reminds me of Birch tree twig when you break it off and chew on it a little bit. It tastes more like that than birch beer. That’s a good thing. There’s some vanilla lurking around but that woody, fresh snapped birch twig flavor is front and center to... Read More

Not as soapy as it used to be, more liquorice too. The pouches version is slightly drier, the tub more anise. An easier smoking version these days compared to 40 years ago.
Cool and Refreshing

This tobacco has either greatly improved or the great many hate filled reviews are greatly exaggerated. Mixture 79 is a great old chunk cut Burley blend with just a touch of what I believe to be Virginia and Cavendish. The topping, which I believe is... Read More

This is maybe my favorite, number 1. Like others advise, it’s best when sipped slowly in order to bring out all the tastes. I like the licorice taste, it’s not cheap or overpowering, it’s simply a good taste.

The bag smells nicely of Root Beer. The smoke and room note however are just standard old school burley and rather plain. If you like Prince Albert or Carter Hall, you'll probably enjoy Mixture 79. I put off trying this based on reviews that gave the... Read More

Ok,been wanting to give this a try for a long time. I have heard so many different things about this blend. I am glad that I tried it. It might not be a everyday smoke, but I will keep it on hand. Going to get a few tubs to jar up.

And just once. Buy the small pouch just to say you did, if you like it, you'll love Lakeland essence or other aromatics, perhaps. If you don't, don't worry yourself too much about it.

This just taste like straight burley that's dry. And it's full of bite. It's honestly the worst blend I've had from Sutliff.

An easy-going blend you can smoke on autopilot while you’re busy with other things. Just a mild, pleasant tobacco.

Tobacco would not light. I laid it out for 12 hours still difficult to light. Bowl got so hot I couldn’t hold but still no smoke. Finally got it going after 10 matches. No taste no aroma. It’s not me. I bought Sutliff 1M which smokes fine. Think Su... Read More

Flavor is good. I liked it. However it doesn't behave that great in the pipe unless dried out. Burns hot, can bite, and has a bit of chemical taste on the smolder.
