3 Noggins - First Impression

Post by graperonto » Thu Feb 16, 2012 8:12 pm

OK, I just opened a tin of 3 Noggins. Never had it before.

I'm chatting with a pipe-smoking friend in Maine. He says it's VERY heavy. I said "Heavier than 925 or Nightcap"? And he said yes...

So... here I go... initial light up. Yeah, this is pretty heavy. But I like it. It reminds me of Nightcap. The aroma is "thick"... definitely a full, rich, latakia blend.

I think as I puff, it gets a bit heavier. I think I really like this.

I walked out of the room and then back in... definitely a heavy smoke. But yeah, I like this.

What have others thought?

It's my opinion that 3 Noggins gets BETTER as the bowl goes down. I'm really impressed!

The 'O' is for obsessive.

I have been having this blend quite a lot since the most recent Box Pass graced my door step.

I'm having some in my Teipen briar stem Dublin as I two finger peck this post.

Heavy? hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Heavy?

I don't think I've ever had a blend similar to this one. My previous Rattray's tries have been average minus. That includes Hal O' Wynd and Old Gowrie.

I do like this one. But, I have nothing to compare and contrast it to.

Any ideas of similar blend(s) for me to try?
