The Peterson My Mixture 965 is a fairly strong english blend, but thanks to the large amount of Cavendish used, it smokes very smooth and painlessly. Also combining Orientals and Latakia, this blend is a favorite of intellectuals and connoisseurs. With no flavoring and a tolerable room note, this is a blend that really speaks for itself.

Not a big lat fan but this is pretty good.
I was a bit hesitant to try this blend when I saw there was Cavendish in it because the only Cavendish I'd had in any blends is Black Cavendish and I'm really not a fan of the sweetness it adds. However, when I first tried this I was absolutely blown away. To me, this is the taste I think of when I think of "pipe tobacco". This is the tobacco I've been searching for since I started smoking a pipe. While it is an English blend w/ Latakia, I think it's a very well balanced blend. It is not near as Latakia-heavy as Nightcap but is not an underwhelming "Latakia-light" blend like I find Early Morning. It is a full-bodied, well-balanced blend. Pick this up as soon as you can, you will not regret it.
This is a perfectly balanced, carefully thought out blend. Nice body, and aroma along with an acceptable room note.
I was inspired to buy this due to its association to William Faulkner et al. I feel as though I need more bowls to get cozy with it and get my pacing right, to get the most out of it.
Honestly, the flavors are great, but I have found it a bit harsh, perhaps due to my cadence. I'm looking forward to enjoying it in the springtime, in the woods, with a great book, as per the Blend Recommender's instructions.
Very rich and not over powering
