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:
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.
