Part Number:Three Nuns 1

Reportedly, Three Nuns was the favorite smoke of authors C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. However, the blend has changed a bit since they lit their bowls. The coin cut spins together an outer layer of Virginias with a center of Kentucky Dark Fired. Some Brazillian leaf is thrown in to smooth the edges and add a spiciness. The body rates as a medium, and the room note is very natural. 

I enjoyed my bowl of Three Nuns Red. I can’t comment on the differences from the original blend, but the absence of perique would make it different. However, the natural sweetness of the Virginias is the start of the show complimented by some smokiness from the Kentuckys. I would put this as a solid medium body smoke, and the room note drew no complaints.

I Hate Bad Reviews
I am not going to give this one a bad review. I am not one of those old codgers rocking on his porch, spitting through toothless gums, saying, "Back in my day, Three Nuns had perique, and I used to have walk ten miles to get it, uphill, both ways." I am not that guy, but for a round sliced flake with Dark Fired Kentucky and Virginias, well, it's one that you should at least try. You won't hate it, but it is good, especially if you are a cigar guy. Maybe it was better back in the old days, but it's pretty good now. There are better blends, but there are people who love this stuff as it is now. Some people really, really love it. That's how good it is.
