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.

...and that’s a good thing! I first smoked 965 decades ago (at that time the big debate was whether the bulk was as good as the Dunhill tins). After years of smoking this mixture, it disappeared from the stores. Then I saw this Peterson branded product. I was very trepidatious about buying it. Glad I did. Great to have this back.
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
