2018 was a sad year for fans of Dunhill tobacco when they announced that they were discontinuing all of their tobaccos for good. Thankfully Peterson has come to the rescue in 2019 and has released all the Dunhill blends you love rebranded under the Peterson name. And to top it off, the recipes remain exactly the same, the only difference is the branding on the tin. So you can be assured that the tobacco you get is the one you know and love.
Relaunched by Peterson in 2019, the Peterson Elizabethan Mixture is a rich flavoured blend of pressed, air-cured and ribbon cut dark Virginia leaves with a touch of Louisiana Perique for added zest and richness. Unfortunately, the recipes will never quite be the same as the originals as the same leaf is not available and times change but we have already had our first reviews. We are told that this one is close and dare we quote “could even be better than the Murrays version” (Cue the abuse.) We’ll let you decide what you think.
