Best Scottish Mixture ever.
Patrick Eruimy (Switzerland) 2/7/2016 10:03 AM
Open the tin, and 3 dominant scents welcome you: sweetness, smokiness and a vinegary sourness (from successful fermentation). Nice and rather powerful scent, but not one to instantly fall in love with. As always, scent and smoking are different animals. A typical Scottish Mixture, indeed, and a Hall of Fame mixture, too. For many pipe lovers it might be the best Scottish Mixture ever. I remember 965 quite differently in several aspects when I smoked it in the early 80’s. But I don’t want to get into this. The Virginias and the English Cavendish, as a courting coupe, form the body of this mixture. The bright and obvious sweetness lies unequivocally in the Macedonia Bright (a sweet Oriental). The darker, more settled sweetness, as well as the discreet nutty, creamy taste, originate from English Cavendish, not from Burley, as it normally does. To my knowledge there is no Burley at all in this mixture. The Orientals (other than Macedonia Bright) provide and enhance the natural tobacco aromas and add some spice to this blend. Latakia is there, as in all Scottish Mixtures, on a small scale though, just to provide a decent woody, leathery smokiness. Over all, an excellent all-day mixture, although it might be too dominant on the diverse sweetness for the dedicated English, Balkan and Latakia smoker. Last but not least, this mixture has the quality of a “transition mixture” for Danish smokers who want to become English smokers. Try it.
Perfectamente balanceado.

Como fumador novato, el olor en la lata me atemorizo un poco, pero eso se disipo al comenzar a fumar. Sabores muy agradables ofrece este tabaco dulce, nuez, ligeramente espaciado y ligeramente ahumado (por la latakia supongo). Todos estos sabores están muy bien balanceados. Esta debe ser una mezcla de referencia para todo fumador.

When we talk about something being greater than the sum of its parts we could be talking about MM965. It smells amazing in the tin, burns perfectly and offers a myriad of tastes: cool, spicy, and pure tobacco goodness. Smoking this is like looking at an old sepia photograph. It has a distinctively "brown" quality to it. Brown in a studious and introspective way. Itbis a perfect blend.

One of the finest oriental English blends ever made. Lovely smokey Latakia smell in the can as well as a sweet musty raisin precents. It is a little moist in the tin and can use a bit of drying for a wonderful cool rich manly smoke. Buy some right away if you like Latakia forward mixtures. Cheers.
A Classic

This tobacco has been my favorite for many years. Not the same as the old Murray's but still recognizably 965. Dry, nutty, full flavoured and slightly sweet. Fresh out of the tin, it can be acrid and tarry due to moisture, but once aired out and dried a little it regains its speldour.
