    I must admit Shortbusgangstas posts regarding Three Nuns(and more) was quite enjoyable. I hope he sticks around.

    I treat people the way they treat me. It's that simple.

    Given that Peter Heinrichs wasn't licensed to manufacture 3 Nuns, and he was insisting that they did and that he was witness to it, while constantly attempting to insult anyone who dared to disagree with him, and providing no other corroboration than that we were expected to automatically believe him, what good points were raised? His posts stank of bitter envy.

    The original version of it that CS Lewis and Tolkien smoked did not and did not have Perique. The US version at one point had up to 23% in it. Talk about tongue bite!

    This one threw me. I smoke straight Perique from time to time. What tongue bite?

    I don't think I'll miss him much. I enjoy a good controversy, but not with so much ill-will. And playing the "thank me for my service!" card was abhorrent.

    Perique and tongue bite= BS. He wasn't very clear with his facts, would throw insults left and right and then bring military service into a pipe tobacco discussion, not impressive.

    I could deal with the controversy, but I thought a mod should have launched him for the vulgarity and contemptuous personal attacks. Maybe he was warned via a PM. I dunno.

    I did agree with him on some points (well maybe one) but he certainly could have conveyed his thoughts a lot better and with more respect. He really came off sounding like a spoiled child, "but I want the GOLDEN TICKET, DADDY!"

    He was right to challenge Jim's opinion, everyone has right to disagree with another's opinion.
    But to keep bitching after Jim clearly stated that he still has the "original" mixture and smokes it on occasion .....

    Ok, I just read the entire "Bell's Three Nuns" post.

    Mr. Short Bus raised an interesting issue about 3 Nuns and Peter Heinrich Curly being one and the same, but couldn't provide any corroborating evidence to support his claims. When challenged on this, he turned defensive and gunned down the entire forum. Maybe that kind of behavior was useful back when he was toppling regimes, but I'm sure that it hasn't served him well in the intervening years.

    Kudos to Jim for handling this so well. He responded in the calm and super-informed manner that we all respect him for. I would not have been so restrained. Jim is the better man for it.

    Virginialover won the internets for his retorts, though. Good on ya', Bunnyman!

    I thought Jon G summed it up nicely:

    About you, shortbus, all I know is that you offer unsupported (and perhaps unsupportable) assertions, and that your posts are so agitated as to verge on hysteria. Speaking for myself, taking a contrary view is always welcome; violent opinioneering and sarcasm are not.

    Al, I was just about to go all out flame war on his ass and you closed the thread before I could let go my salvo. You know your supposed to check with me before you close a thread I was about to have some fun with...right?

    This place needs a good flame war here and there, lets face it, we all love a good one. Ok some may not like them, but I sure as shit do. The part about "toppling regimes" that was one of the funniest things I have read on this forum in the all my years here, you cannot make that stuff up.

    Yes, good flame wars are entertaining, sometimes enlightening. While some good ripostes, the thread turned pathetic. Totally agree with Jon G's comments.

    I am glad to see Mr. Short Bus gone. I do not mind contrary opinions;however, as stated above, they can be stated without blatantly trying to be offensive. Also, it would have helped if his ramblings would have been at least coherent. I think I may actually be dumber for having attempted to understand Shortbus' logic.

    You guys convinced me to read the thread. The only thing I have to say is: Hawky454 Did you really think deertongue was the tongues from deer?
    I am not sure what plant Deertongue is exactly, either Carphephorus odoratissimus or Trilisa odoratissima. I've believe it is supposed to have a similar flavor as vanilla but contains coumarin which makes it more risky to use than vanilla.

    Although I've whined about Three Nuns changes in its versions, the most I can do is boycott the current version. Writing and reading about it has become boring, so I missed all the excitement, which is good for an excitable nature.

    Although I will admit to a sleeping taster when I smoked 50g of Doblone d'Oro earlier this year, I didn't think it as good as the one version of Three Nuns during '02-'04. I didn't think to compare the two, but had it tasted like the last version of 3Nuns that I smoked, I do believe I would have remembered. Whatever, I still have the other 50g so now I'm excited to smoke it.

    Salted Plug: I agree with you. Unfortunately, the Doblone d'Oro is the closet thing to VaPer Three Nuns made today. Wish we still had the original with the same tobacco sources. I'd be swimming and smoking in it if we did! But, Doblone d'Oro is still a real good blend, and all things considered, I'm glad we have it around.

    ... Orlik got it early in 2004. Can't recall who made it before that...

    It's written "The contents of this package are the goods of the successors of J. & F. Bell, Glasgow" and "Made in England". It's a trigger way to paraphrase that it was no longer made in Glasgow.
    My Glasgow tin in round shape has yet to be finished, so I don't have to open this square tin yet. And they are really rare resources for me so I always find excuses to say the occasion is not special enough to taste them. For the knowledge of blends, I definitely have to rely on experienced forum members like Jim who has been through the history of quite a few historical blends.

    In 2018, I can enjoy something new: smoking Doblone d'Oro in my pipes while staring at the TN tins in my cellar.
    On a daily basis, I smoke mostly English/Lat oriental mixture though. And if I crave for VaPer, I'll go grab my aged Marlin Flake; and for coin cut with a touch of VaPer, I do miss something, a lot indeed: Motzek Strang.

    After some time he felt for his pipe. It was not broken, and that was something. Then he felt for his pouch, and there was some tobacco in it, and that was something more. Then he felt for matches and he could not find any at all, and that shattered his hopes completely.

    He raised some good points. Maybe too good.

    Indeed. But in the wrong way, which guaranteed an explosion instead of the discussion that is happening here.

    Hopefully he will mend that and return.

    I think most forums refuse registrations by a banned ID if reused; I don't think they do so by IP, which is what is really needed. Given that people don't change, he'd probably get in trouble again though it seemed he'd been around pipes for some time.

    Ummmm, no. Did it come across that way? I used that as an example of something that is added to a tobacco blend that is not tobacco but rather a plant or an herb of some sort. I did not think that they were actually slicing up tongues from a deer and putting it in tobacco, that just ridiculous. I did almost buy into there being seaweed in Exotique though, I'll admit to that. I mean why would someone go into such depth about it if it were a flat out lie? Well he did, I guess some people get off on lying. Anyway, I was using that as an example to compare with this Shortbus Gangsta (wannabe) He was probably just flat out lying about all of this. I can almost guarantee that he was lying about who he was as he didn't appear to even be old enough to legally smoke a pipe.

    Btw, I'm a fan of the use of Deer tongue in blends. Crooner is an outstanding example of fine use of Deer Tongue. Jitterbugdude also created his own blend from his homegrown tobacco where he uses some DT and I must say I enjoyed that one very much, too.

    When he got off onto his "I'm a macho military man" bullshit, I thought he was going to treat us all to a full-on "I'm Hub McCann" rant a la Robert Duvall. I was kind of disappointed he didn't, to tell the truth.

    A man who serves his country is a patriot. A man who serves his government is an employee. The two are not always the same thing.

    I still say that the original 3 Nuns has a cinnamon topping, I was actually in the factory when they came up with the original recipe and I specifically remember them grabbing a big jar of cinnamon (mixed with sugar of course) and dousing the coins with it.....

    I was there, I swear! Don't you believe me fellas???

    Chasingembers. It is for real. I would personally never admit to using the service but I am reliably informed the results are as expected. As an after thought who is Hub McCann? Would someone like to enlighten me on that one as it flew straight over my head!

    Hub McCann is a character from the movie Second Hand Lions. Good movie; always liked his quote "We're old, dammit! Leave us alone!" He was a specialist at hand to hand combat and was full of life's wisdom.

    Also had to look up this quote: "I'm Hub McCann. I've fought in two World Wars and countless smaller ones on three continents. I led thousands of men into battle with everything from horses and swords to artillery and TANKS! I've seen the headwaters of the Nile, and tribes of natives no white man had ever seen before. I've won and lost a dozen fortunes, KILLED MANY MEN! And loved only one woman, with a passion a FLEA like you could never begin to understand. That's who I am. NOW, GO HOME, BOY!"

    Yes, but even Hub never went toe to toe with the Bunnyman.

    A researcher in social psychology would have a field day with this thread and the other.

    The penny just dropped. That was a rather good film that also featured Michael Caine as well. Thank you for filling in my blank spot!

    Sorry to leave that one hanging, fellas. I got called away from my desk to do some actual airplane work for a change. Prairiedruid, thanks for picking up the slack on that one!

    Thanks for responding hawky454. I know plenty of Chinese medicines that contain strange ingredients, it isn't ridiculous to think it could've been used. I am sorry to have misinterpreted your post.

    Just for fun here is an example of a deer tongue contributing to tobacco:

    And here is an Authoritative source for Seaweed being added to tobacco, even if not as a blend enhancement:
