Mac Baren Mixture came on the market in 1958, since then it has achieved the status of a classic. Mixture was the main source of inspiration for the work that went into developing Mixture Modern.
MacBaren's tobacco master wished to develop a pipe tobacco with a flavor and aroma akin to Mixture, but which was milder and was cut in line with current trends. Mixture Modern was developed to create a natural, mild way for pipe smokers to make the acquaintance of the Mixture family. Mixture Modern has retained much of the flavor experience that Mixture has imparted to pipe smokers over the last four decades, although as the name indicates Mixture Modern is milder than the original Mixture.
Stringent demands were placed not only on the blend of tobacco leaves but also how the tobacco should be cut. One interesting element in Mixture Modern is the blend of the traditional Cavendish and a larger proportion of our new, mild Cavendish. Where the mild Cavendish imparts sweetness and lightness to the blend, the traditional Cavendish adds an intriguing depth. 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, which all else being equal makes the blend burn more slowly. As with Mixture, the taste is one of nuances and the composition of the mild tobaccos makes Mixture Modern a mild, pleasant smoking experience. Others will find the mild, aromatic fragrance, which spreads through the room, agreeable. Mixture Modern is exceptionally easy to fill your pipe and to smoke.
