This is Clegir rope with seven percent perique, and is smaller in width than your average rope. The high quality Virginias are earthy with a little grassiness, and a fair amount of naturally sweet citrus with some dark fruitiness, and a bare touch of spice. The perique is a little noticeable, being as much raisin and figs as it is peppery. There is a very minor floral Lakeland essence, but it doesn’t sublimate the natural tobacco taste to any extreme, and I think it comes from the blend being in the same area with Lakeland blends rather than it being a topping. Needs minimal prep time as the rope is very easy to slice, but depending upon your preference, you may want to give it just a little dry time once you have done your cutting. I’d not advise much drying because the tobacco spun in the rope is thin and a little fragile, and will turn crisp if you aren’t careful. Burns clean and smooth at a slow pace, and should be sipped for best effect, though I encountered no hint of bite. The nic-hit and strength is mild to medium, though the taste is a shade more than medium. Has a very pleasant after taste and slightly floral room note. Leaves no moisture in the bowl.

Medium to Strong None Detected Very Full Pleasant to Tolerable

With a few years of aging it gets very similar to the old Tree Nuns.

There is althogh a sliced variation called Ambleside Curly. Little diverence - a bit less Kentucky wrapper and sweeter.

Over years the stuff darkened very much.

Fresh stuff i like only in summer. Aged all over the year.

the same with Three Nuns

Age When Smoked: 1 - 8 years

Genial format. I think it needs a bit longer drying period after slicing. First it gives a beautiful natural sweetness, which you can get only from splendid selection of virginias. Than when you start to get full with the "spring", the taste-trip starts to put you onto a smooth vaper highway. Puffing it from a bigger chambered briar can be the optimum solution. Four stars in my scale.
