One of the unfortunate realities of having a world class selection of cigars and pipe tobacco like we do at Twins Smoke Shop is that really great things can get overlooked. This week we review two of things that are hidden gems in our selection: First we review the Antaño Dark Corojo Poderoso by Hoyo de Nicaragua. This storied cigar has been around since 2007. Does it really still hold up after all these years?
Second, we light up Three Nuns by MacBaren. This famous tobacco has been in production for over 100 years and was a favorite of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. But Three Nuns has changed manufacturers several times over the last century, and what originally was a Virginia Perique blend is now a Virginia Burley. What we have today is not the same thing that Lewis and Tolkien enjoyed. But is it a tobacco that deserves to carry on the name Three Nuns?
Joining us for this episode is special guest Nick Laramie from Drew Estate who distributes Antaño. Nick is also a pipe guy and joins us in our review of Three Nuns. Kendra gets back with us as well and has some excellent pairings from the 7-20-4 Lounge for each review. You can listen here or click the link below.
