Peter Heinrichs Curly Special

Rare Virginias are spun into "twist" then sliced to the size of small coins. Each disk is a complete blend. Costly to produce, this spun cut can be smoked for its slow burning classic Virginia flavor or mixed into a favorite blend for a change of pace.

The description of Bell's Three Nuns is: A blend of dark fired and sun cured tobaccos mixed with the finest Brazilian Lights to produce the unique flavour and mellow smoking characteristics for this Virginia/Perique. PH's Special Curley & Bell's Three Nuns are the same mixture. I can tell no difference in appearance, tin note or smoking experience. Well, there is one difference..., I can buy 600 Gm of Special Curley for less than I'd pay to get 250 Gm of Three Nuns. This fine Tobak is best smoked slowly to allow it to develop with a faint essence of Almond woven amongst the strength of the Virginia leaf and the moderation of the Perique. As this is not a Tobak that enjoys a large following, chances are that what you get in an order will have age on it, as suggested by the appearance of the plastic lid. I will not attempt to improve on what has already been stated in previous reviews. I will suggest that you get some before it can no longer be found on this side of the ocean.

This stuff comes in 200g tins. Upon opening, there is a very lite, naturally sweet, well aged Virginia aroma. I am not sure if there is a topping here or just an outstanding natural Virginia! It has a very nice appearance with curls about the size of quarters among partially rubbed out (probably just unraveled)discs. Colors range fron yellows to light brown. There is no perique here and I don't detect any burley. Moisture content may be just a tad on the moist side if not just right. For the most part it rubs out quite easily. Some of the discs require a bit more effort than others. I like the feel of the tobacco. It has none of that sticky topping feel. It is a bit warm on lighting but quickly settles down to a very nice smoke! It is slightly complex smoke with several different flavors on down the bowl. This is a dry smoke and is very easy to keep lit. There is no negative aftertaste and, for all of these reasons, has become one of my very favorite smokes. I have put quite a few of these tins away for future enjoyment. In one word to me - seductive!
