The Elizabethan Mixture was adapted as part of the Peterson tobacco series by Orlik of Denmark. Now that Peterson has made this blend truly theirs, it is been brought back to life and offered to those of us in the western hemisphere. A rubbed ribbon cut blend made primarily of Virginia and Perique tobacco, this blend has a medium body and flavor with a tolerable room note. Some say they can detect citrus in this blend, but as it is not flavored, there is no way to be sure.

- Room Note:
First off, I'm an English blend type of smoker. I didn't like the much loved Escudo Navy Deluxe---I got the sense it needs aging. But, the Elizabethan is a vaper you can enjoy right away. It is tasty enough and doesn't bite. I'm going to put some away for aging before Dunhill disappears.
Great all day smoke, perfect moisture, consistent burn, great flavor
This is a substantial Virginia-Perique mix with a decidedly vinegar-y overtone. It is medium in nicotine strength and overall flavor but the acetic "olive" note it offers is not to my particular taste. It is satisfying but not delicious.
