This is supposed to be a blend that has been blended as a replacement for the Original Three Nuns Mixture. Having never tried the real thing, i thought i would give this a shot since it contains my favourite tobaccos.
I find this blend to be most satisfying, it is full to the brim with our beloved VitN.
The more i smoke this, the more i find similarities to C&D Night Train. I find the blends so similar that i would need at least 1/4 of a bowl to tell the difference, how this compares to 3 Nuns i can unfortunately not tell.
Upon lighting, the first taste is that of Perique. I settles down after puff 3-5 and becomes a wonderfull, rich blend where different components play together beautifully. The last third however becomes very strong and that is the reason for me awarding it 3 stars and not 4.
