    A few days ago I cracked open a tin from the mid 2000s of Orlik produced Bell's Three Nuns. Is this anyone's favorite blend? If so, why? Enjoy the tasty pics.

    I'm still smoking it and getting a feel for the blend. But my initial thoughts are a bit mixed. I would certainly describe this as a medium-full body smoke with a darker sweetness that makes me think of a simple stout beer.

    It is certainly a very mellow, excellent dry smoke, and the ash seriously broke down to a perfectly fine powder. I smoked 3 bowls with a varying level in moisture and was surprised by the consistency of the cool/dry smoke.

    The Kentucky seems to show up more as you progress to the end of the bowl. I know I'd be a little bit happier if this had perique instead. The jury is still out for me.

    Buy yourself a tin of Savinelli Doblone d'Oro. It's a very close match to the Va/Per Three Nuns.

    Is the Orlik incarnation a Va/PER or already a Va/Ky like the Mac Baren one? Ah okay, you mentioned it to be Kentuky in there!
    I only got to taste the Va/Ky Mac Baren and LOVE IT as hell...but the price is just out of this world (16,50€ 50g), so this is more like a "special something" that I enjoy only rarely as it's just to pricey.

    Thanks for those fine picks, looks tempting! Also the tin looked way cooler than the new one by MB.
    Enjoy it!
