I am no stranger to Peterson’s line but this was my first purchase of 3P. I’ll admit I was a bit disillusioned when I opened the tin and found this little 1.75x1.75x.75 inch chunk. It looked quite dinky in the over-sized tin. It does come sealed in cellophane and looks a bit odd for a first time plug user. I opened the outer wrapper and wow! It smells like this dark delicious fig, date, raisin cake. Dark and wonderful. I cut off a slice and rubbed it between my palms to loosen it up. A thin slice rubs out to more loose leaf than I had expected. Sticky stuff. The aroma is inviting. Once loosened, it packed wonderful into my bent Ben Wade briar. It takes a two match light to get going. Burns slow and cool. Lovely billows of smoke. And the taste is “Perfect”. I get oak, dark fruit, and cigar leaf flavors coming through. I had this with a dark Belgian ale and it was a great pairing. No bite. I’ll give it a three on strength even though CI gives it a 4. I have to admit, there is something appealing to cutting and rubbing your own tobacco.
Wow this stuff is awesome. It comes as a solid chunk and it's alot of work cutting a chunk off and rubbing it out to smoke but when You load up Your pipe and fire it up Man is this stuff Good. It's like no other Pipe tobacco I ever smoked. I love it. All kinds of yummy flavors hit You.
