The Mellow Mallard is a Ready Rubbed, consisting of slim-cutted, but longer bits of flakes. It is generally medium brown, with some darker and lighter proportions. Typical of pure Virginias the tobacco smells of hay with a slight fruity sweetness in the background. In the tin The Mellow Mallard seems to be a bit damp, but is so well conditioned that it can be plugged immediately.
The Mellow Mallard can be easily accommodated in the pipe. Depending on the pipe size, it may only be necessary to grind larger bits of flake smaller. Stuff not too tightly, because pressed tobacco generally tends to rise under the flame. Loose tobacco fibers and crumbs on top of the filling are well suited to take the flame quickly.
Despite a certain residual moisture to The Mellow Mallard can easily be ignited. After two flames and in between once smoothing with the tamper the tobacco burns comfortably and makes no further work.
Despite its gentle name The Mellow Mallard surprises with a lush smoke, which also comes yet neat spicy. Here, the tobacco does its name still all honor, it is very mild, you have - unlike some other pure Virginias - neither fear tongue bite nor gargling.
