Description

The Charatan  Curzon Mixture celebrates the heritage of this blend which is designed for the more experienced and mature pipe smoker. It has a composition of Virginia, Latakia and Oriental and has a well balanced smooth, dark brown smoke with floral and tannin tones.  

This great range of Charatan pipe tobaccos has been created to replace the previously very popular Dunhill pipe tobaccos. These have been made to a very similar blend and should delight fans of Dunhill pipe tobaccos which have now been discontinued.

In 1863 Frederick Charatan, opened a shop in Mansell Street, London where he began to carve Meerschaum pipes. These got very popular very quickly and Charatan moved to a bigger workshop in Prescott street. Here he began to make the briar pipes that made the name Charatan World famous. on the retirement of his father in 1910 Reuben Charatan took over the family business and the business was wholly owned by the Charatan family until 1960.

During the noughties, Dunhill tobacco of London, through the House of Edgeworth introduced a range of Charatan cigars, manufactured exclusively for the UK cigar smoker. However British American Tobacco (Dunhill Tobacco of London) made the decision in December 2016 to withdraw from the hand made cigar and pipe tobacco market in 2017.

 

Tasting Notes

The Charatan Curzon Mixture Pipe Tobacco has been produced as a direct replacement for the delisted Dunhill Durbar Pipe Tobacco.
Whilst Viceroy of India, Lord Curzon was responsible for the spectacular 1903 Delhi Durbar celebrating the accession of Edward VII as Emperor of India.

This name celebrates te heritage of this blend which is designed for the more experienced and mature pipe smoker and has a composition of Virginia, Latakia and Oriental. It has a well balanced smooth, dark brown smoke with floral and tannin tones.
The blend is remarkably close to the former Dunhill Durbar.

I used to love the Dunhill morning tobacco but this is not the same. I would not recommend it for a morning smoke it has a real chemical taste to it especially on first light. The taste settles down a bit after tampering and is ok with a nice scotch on an evening but certainly not a first bowl for me.. I will stick with an aromatic blend for that.

The Charatan tobacco arrived safely yesterday. I am really happy with the tobacco. Its very close if not the same as London mixture. Its quite a bit moister than the Dunhill. Required a small amount of dry time. No problem for me. The Virginias are sweeter and the orientals are dryer tasting. I actually think its a little better. Although it has been 8 months since I last smoked the Dunhill blend. Overall very happy with the product and thank you to C.Gars Ltd for excellent customer service.
