    I can't decide which to try next. I suppose I could get a tin of each but I've already got so many tins of stuff I have not yet tried it will take me months to get through all of them.

    London Mixture has had more of a following throughout the years, if that helps any. I'm not sure if Standard Mellow is the same as the old Standard Mixture Medium or Standard Mixture Mild, or a hybrid of some kind. The Mild I found too boring but the Medium was ok. I prefer London Mix.

    Once you got your favourite Dunhill Blend (my one is their Mixture965!) treat yourself to a Dunhill pipe!:bing:

    definitely a good reason to reverse my stance on those damn purses

    back on topic - I have to say that London Mix is at the absolute top of my list, followed by EMP and Nightcap. I haven't tried the Standard Mixture (regular or otherwise), so I can't really help you there, and I haven't yet smoked a whole lot of other brands, so take what you will from my opinion.

    Dunghill I reckon would be better the Dungstore just because your able to cut the middle man.

    Arkie, I like London Mixture, but have not tried Standard. I have a new LM tin that is still unopened, if your interested in trying both, buy the Standard send me half, and I'll send you 1/2 of the London Mixture. Or, just buy both tins! :) -David

    Thanks for the offer but, judging from all the comments about London Mixture, it sounds as though it is the blend for me to try. I'll eventually get some Std Mix as well. So many blends...so little time & money.
