A couple of years before Dunhill pulled the plug on their Orlik production, I would sometimes get the Standard Mixture sent when I had ordered the SM Mellow, previously known as SM Mild. The EU regs forced name changes for certain descriptive words - this was all for the children, you understand. Hence Rattray's Orange Passion got renamed Exotic Passion. What I don't understand is how this "Standard Mixture" is different from SM Medium. Any insight?

They used to have the Mild, Medium and Full when they were manufactured in the UK. I have not smoked the Mild nor the Full but my educated guess would be the quantity of Latakia used in each. I did, however, smoke several tins of the Medium which still remains my favorite English mixture.
