A blend of dark fired Kentucky and sun cured Virginia tobaccos mixed with the finest Brazilian Lights to produce the unique flavour and mellow smoking characteristics for which Three Nuns is famous.
Pipe Tobacco Hall of Fame Inductee.
The original Three Nuns coin tobacco (containing Perique and not Kentucky) was a creation of J & F Bell, dating back to the 19th century.
It was a favourite of British authors (and friends) C.S. Lewis & J.R.R. Tolkien. The coin-like discs were phased out, and Three Nuns is now only available in a ready rubbed mixture.
