We discovered a source of Turkish leaf similar in profile to what was used in the original Goblin Mixture. We’ve enjoyed bringing you small variants of this mixture occasionally for the holidays with various types of Latakia or Oriental substitutes. We hope to send the new test candidate to testers shortly and have it rejoin the regularly stocked blends if accepted.
Goblin Mixture is a Scottish blend in the tradition of Perth. (versus a “scotch” mixture in the Lakeland/SouthHighland tradition). It has Virginia selected according to Charles Rattray’s design philosophy with condimental orientals and Latakia used as he described in the Perth tradition.
