For fans of the original Three Nuns, first blended over a century ago, the Mac Baren iteration will invoke memories of the original, but is its own exceptional smoking experience entirely. For those of us who are HUGE C.S. Lewis fans, but were not alive for the original, this blend is a chance to smoke something exceptional while wondering what Oxford would have been like in the glory days. Whichever side you fall on, this is a slightly spicy and smoky experience not to be missed.

I know it’s called Three Nuns but I rank it 5 lol. Anyway, this is an incredibly good blend in my inexperienced opinion, only been smoking pipe tobacco for about a year. It is very smooth, creamy smoke with a hint of spiciness, almost like a spice cake. Not too strong and not too weak. I found it tastes even better smoking very slowly.
Wonderful. Lots of flavor with just a touch of spice.
I love the prompt shipping and competitive pricing. I didn't know what to expect from the tobacco, so was pleasantly surprised.
I love this one and will keep it in my regular rotation. Smooth and a little stronger flavor compared to some other blends I have tried, a little nutty. Excellent.
Extremely smooth smoking but I like a little flavor. I mix this half and half with Mac Barrens Vanilla Cream. Perfect!
This is a good well balanced tobacco.
Burns really good and taste good. It’s very smooth and still has plenty of nicotine smells very good as well
I'm on my third tin of this. It is a very pleasing smoke. If you want to step up from the aromatics you are smoking give this one a try.
I really enjoy Three Nuns. I have never had any other version than the current Bells (Mac Baren) it is very mild and easy to smoke. If they lowered the price I would give it 5 stars and put it in my rotation but it is definitely overpriced in my opinion
