I’m reviewing both Three Nun’s Yellow and Green because I bought them simultaneously to compare. Both were smoked in a variety of pipes (hand carved, cobs, thick, thin, small and large) and in a variety of methods (sitting/tasting, while walking, while doing yard work). Based on all of those criteria, here are my reviews: Three Nun’s Green Described as a VaPer with Dark Fired Kentucky - this seems to me like one of those tobaccos trying to find itself.

Packaging: Like the other Three Nun’s in the family, this tobacco looks like it was packed in haste. Opening the round tin, I found loosely packed irregular coins haphazardly mixed with ribbons of tobacco. Moisture content on the other hand is perfect and smokable right out of the tin. Regardless, I transferred into a rubber sealed jar and let the tobacco breathe for a day before smoking.

Strength: I found the nicotine content to be on the more mild side for this tobacco.

Tin Note: The aroma from the tin could be described as a mixture of fig cookie with a little cocoa.

Taste/Flavoring: I chose to take this tobacco on a walk for the first few bowls and I found this tobacco to behave in a few different stages. In the first third of the bowl, I definitely noted a mixture of the sweet Virginia/Perique (bready and fig newton) combined with a toastiness from the DFK. In the middle third of the bowl, the tobaccos blended together into a sweet mixture that lingered across my tongue after every exhale. In the final third of the bowl, I detected almost no presence of the DFK.

Room Note: With the discerning nose of my non-smoking wife, she found the lingering smell of this tobacco to be a heavier tobacco then she appreciates. So, it clearly doesn’t pass the wife test and makes it an outdoor tobacco.

OVERALL: Considering that I love sweet Virginia tobaccos, when I compare 3NG to the other tobaccos in the family, I’d put this in a solid third place.

Dry right from the tin with many of the coins already broken. Miss the sweetness from the VAs and the perique is way in the background until the last 1/3 of the bowl. Leaves my mouth dry after smoking.
