Good choice... I have been enjoying Cabbie's Mixture, and find it to be a top quality VA blend that reminds me of an Escudo Navy Flake/PS Luxury Bullseye Flake/Davidoff Medallion mixture with the edge taken off, so marginally lighter but no less flavorful. I recommend letting the Cabbie's Mixture age for at least 6 months in a tightly sealed jar. It is a 4/4 Star winner in my book! ENJOY!!!
I read Jim's review as well as other comments and am including a couple of tins on my next order. Looking forward to trying this new one from SG.
I also highly recommend Cabbie's Mixture, and while excellent straight from a new tin, I suggest you mason jar it for at least 6 months - the Virginia's sweeten a bit and the fuller true character of the blend pushes forward, IMO. ENJOY!!!
I tried the Cabbies mixture that a dear friend of mine over the pond sent me before it was available in the states. We both came to the conclusion that even though it is a fairly good smoke that it needed a little time to age a bit. My favorite tobacco is Escudo and I've been smoking it for years and I find no comparison to Cabbies Mixture but, everyone's palette is different.

Cabbie's Mixture sounds like my cup of tea, added to TAD list. Dunno about Lakeland Dark though...I seem to prefer the brighter flavours of tobacco, as opposed to the darker ones. My tin of Irish Flake is lasting me ages, and my stash of ODF is going nowhere fast...
