The choicest Virginias, Burleys and dark fired Kenyan leaf are enhanced with an impeccable addition of spicy Perique, then aged to perfection before being spun into enticingly beautiful, zesty coins. A delightfully vivacious and flavorful smoke.

Medium to Strong None Detected Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

The Virginias are naturally citrusy sweet, grassy with a little earthiness. I taste a little honey, too. The dark fired spicey, woody Kentucky is an important player, adding some flavor depth and strength. There is a fair amount of raisiny, peppery perique that plays well with the Kentucky spice as it tingles the tongue. You'll want something to drink while you smoke it. The tobacco is coin cut, but very easy to break part or fold and stuff as you please. It's very reminiscent of MacBaren's Three Nuns in several ways, which is no surprise since MacBaren manufactures both mixtures. It's stronger and spicier than Three Nuns was in any version. Consider this to be a hot-to-trot kissing cousin to the new Three Nuns. It burns well with a meaty consistent flavor with no bite or dullness, and no dottle.

Excellent blend with rich flavor delivery. It all comes together well - fresh out of the tin. Very Mac Barenesque, as should apparently be expected from the research I've done on this one. One light, clean burn, no fuss. A creaminess to the excellent flavors delivered, with nice spice on the retrohale. 4*.

Nice coins, fairly dry and smokeable without needing further drying. Reminds me of MacBaren's Dark Twist with a bit of Perique added. No country of origin or blender listed on the tin but I'm guessing MacBaren.

Medium Strong Medium to Full Pleasant

This is a delightful tobacco. Sweet grassy back drop from the Virginia while the dark fired Kenyan tobacco gives it some strength. The Perique adds some spice to make it interesting. A great all day smoke. It comes out of the tin ready to smoke. It is stimulating without tongue bite and never boring. I am surprised not more people are trying this. With its availability, cost, and undeniable flavor it is an easy 5. it could easily become a classic that a whole other generation will decry it's passing in later years. Rated an easy 4.

Pipe Used: any number. It is a very forgiving tobacco.

Age When Smoked: June 14 and ready to go.
