Mixture Modern has retained much of the flavour experience that Mixture has imparted to pipe smokers over the last four decades, but with a more mild contemporary taste. Stringent demands were placed not only on the blend of tobacco leaves but also how the tobacco should be cut.
One of the changes that have been made is to remove the Original Cavendish and replace it with the milder Modern Cavendish. Besides being milder it gives the blend a light, sweet taste with just the slightest hint of tanginess.
The larger part of the tobacco leaves in Mixture Modern are loose cut, which makes Mixture Modern easy to fill. Mixture Modern also contains Ready Rubbed tobacco, with all else being equal makes the blend burn more slowly.
