A rich and hearty VaBur done in a style that is becoming rare, a true heated press plug, in the old Irish style!!! A lot of dark fruit flavors from the Va and the light topping adds some citrus and fig flavor. The burley is nutty and earthy sweet. A very full flavor with a creamy texture and lots of billowy smoke with lots of depth and a medium nicotine hit. It’s a hard plug so it needs to be prepped but cut it don’t peel it and it will reward you with a long lasting bowl of true tobacco pleasure...one of my all time favorite overall and in the VaBur line.
I love this tobacco. You have to be prepared to slice and crumble - it requires a little work to load your pipe but it is well worth the effort. Great with a cup of fresh coffee in the morning or over a bourbon late at night. I think this a 'sleeper' in the Peterson stable of pipe tobaccos. I highly recommend trying this plug tobacco. This is another pipe tobacco that I can smoke at any time of the day.
I am fairly new to pipe smoking, however, I can say 3P's is an excellent tobacco. It is a straight forward, rich, full flavored, smooth tobacco without any added flavors needed and very enjoyable.
A great full bodied simple pipe tobacco. Determine your cut, and smoke your worries away.
So this is my first plug and let me tell you it is so worth it.
Yes, this will not be my daily smoke but it's a good treat when you really want to slow down and enjoy the little things in life, The room note is amazing that my wife wanted to try it and she's not a smoker. Give it a try you got nothing to lose and so much to gain.
When you just need a little pick-me-up, this will do. I need to express one thing on you, this is not a complex tobacco that needs a lot of explaining. This tobacco has a decent room note, moderate flavor and a fairly strong Nicotine hit. I think that when you need something simple and to the point, this fits the bill. This tobacco has a heavy oily smoke so have a sweet tea, coffee or soda to complement this tobacco.
