Easy fix if a little dry
The tobacco arrived on the dry side, which I admit is not unusual for large bags. A couple of pieces of tissue soaked in some alcohol and paced in the bag and resealed does a good job in giving the tobacco that slight touch of `not dry anymore`and yet not moist enough to stop a perfect smoke. The smoke has a good texture without the bite. Excellent value. A small soaked tissue in dark rum is my favorite

Beware, but enjoy.
I understand people using Three Sails as a roll-your-own tobacco, but as the name suggests It's also a most delightful and unique pipe smoking mixture. She's a light, yet bright smoke that leaves you wanting to burn another bowl. Puff her too fast and she'll bite a bit. But if you sip on her softly, like a fine wine, she'll show you what she's made of. My only qualm is that she burns out too quickly, no matter how hard I pack her. So beware, but enjoy.

I'm on disability and the price of cigarettes are so high a friend said roll your own I tried a couple different tobaccos didn't like them at all and I called and spoke to a very helpful person told her I smoke menthol and she suggested this brand and I love it this all I buy it's smooth just perfect for me the only problem is usually when I call it's on backorder so I believe it's popular just need to stock more and with the money I saved I know can buy groceries as we are only paid once a month love this brand

Extra fine cut
Not used to such a fine cut with packing and burn speed. I mixed it half an half with Ohm yellow and got a smoother burn and nice taste.

3 Sails was a good tobacco... a long time ago...
I have been a devotee to Three Sails for over 10 years. Sadly, That was the run... This blend is no longer consistent, but the character changes dramatically from batch to batch. The latest bags I have used were obviously "chocolate" "flavored" and the ones before that were sprayed with the same "flavoring" that is used on Bugler tobacco... after it was really considered "good". IS Mark Ryan really still in charge of these things? I sincerely hope not, as that would severely tarnish my opinion of D&R and Mark Ryan.

Best tobacco
Some of the finest RYO tobacco you can buy. The tobacco is cut very small and perfect for a injector. The tobacco is fluffy and seems to stick together when you get it out of the bag, so you might have to play with the tobacco a bit to make a perfect roll. Other pipe tobacco I've tried taste like pipes and seem to have a ton of burley in them. This taste like a normal cigarette, and most importantly smokes like one. If your hesitating getting this because of the price, I would atleast try it out and you most likely will not be sorry. The bag came in at an 8% moisture level from the mail, so I hydrated it a bit to about 13%, and it is a great experience in a roller.

Love this stuff. Perfect for tubes.
I really love this stuff for RYO. It's a bit too bright and bland for me though by itself, after awhile. I prefer to mix it with about 1/3 Ryback Gold. I assume the "Gold" part of Ryback Gold is 3 Sails, based on the descriptions. Ordered Ryback Regular by accident last month to complement the 3 Sails, and WOW is that stuff potent. Just needed a small pinch of it for each tube. A little Ryback goes a long way. But adds a dark deliciousness to my 3 Sails that I can't do without. I'd highly recommend giving the mix a try if 3 Sails alone isn't cutting it for you. Ryback Gold is too much for me by itself, but really sets this tobacco off. And this tobacco is Amazingly perfect for RYO. Which seems to make a lot of pipe smokers mad (?) :(

Excellent tobacco
1st hit is powerful like eating an Andies chocolate mint but after that it's totally smooth and not too bold. A very mellow nice flavored menthol that has no harshness. Doesn't hurt the throat. Will only buy this from now on.

A nice smooth puff
This is a great tobacco for RYO. Bright, yet mellow. Fresh, but just a little thick to its smokiness.

Pretty good
First go at the legendary MYO. The cut is what sets it apart. It is a very fine shag and it stuffs beautifully and can make a tight cigarette easily. Flavor is nice and there's nothing offensive about it but not mind-blowing. Very smooth and medium-rich but to me lacks a little edge. High quality. Has some kind of casing that is vaguely alcohol-like, and I wonder how the raw tobacco would taste without it. Richer than a, say, AS standard cigarette but missing some of that brand's sharpness. Good all-day smoke. Will buy again and want to try others.

Its cigarette tobacco. Trust me, an ex-cigarette stuffer.
I'm an ex-cigarette smoke. D&R was the greatest gift to those of us who stuffed our own tubes. This is cigarette tobacco and always will be. They don't even try to cut it for pipes, its the same stuff I used to buy love and inhale. If you like a cigarette, this is good stuff. I cant imagine its any good as a pipe tobacco.

A Grand and Pleasant Smoke
I bought two tins of this recently and was utterly satisfied with my purchase! I had a bit of a problem with delivery which I believe was my fault as I double-clicked the purchase page and received no confirmation email. When it hadn't arrived in a week, I called and spoke to Tiffany, I believe, - the package was here late the next day!!! (Thank you Tiffany). As for the tobacco, just opening the tin brought a grand and pleasant aroma to the room. The bowlful only enhanced that. A superb and smooth smoke and flavor without being over-powering. I whole-heartedly agree with what a previous reviewer, Roger G., states in his raving of the attributes of this fine product. Thank you Pipes and Cigars, Tiffany, and Daughters and Ryan for putting this out here for sale...Tim E.

I like it!
I really like this tobacco. Has the fresh hay tin aroma and for me had just the right moisture content. It burns evenly and all the way to the bottom of the bowl with one light. Room note was mild and not offensive. Will buy more of this!

This is a mellow sweet tobacco that works excellent as RYO or in a pipe. I will be buying this again.

For those that say it is not pipe tobacco give it another try. I found it to be a bite free, few relight, sweet tasting moderate nicotine delight. It's also nice to pack at the top of a flake to help hide my poor flake technique.

Three Sails.
Bought 8 ounces bulk of this and recently finished it off. It's not bad to be clear, but it's definitely not great. I found it to be smooth with a slight sweet undertone. This Virginia was smooth to the point of feeling as though I was drawing no smoke. No bite whatsoever. If that's your preference then you're looking at the right tobacco. The flavor I found was almost non-existent, taking it after or with coffee or tea allowed me clear my taste buds enough to taste the sweet undertones, they are there just very subtle. This tobacco does come very dry while rehydrating is simple enough, smoking this beforehand it will burn very fast. This may be attributed to the cut. This does make a great blend when mixed with Burley which makes Three Sails shine and will bring out the best in Burley blends. All in all not a great tobacco, but not necessarily bad.

World's Greatest...but not for a pipe.
99% of the reviews here fall into A. those that bought this for and smoked it in a pipe, and B. those who used it for rolling or injecting in a "small cigar" format. Those that are pipers tend not to like this so much. Those that use it as intended (RYO/MYO) think it's just about the best blend in the world. This stuff is literally the darling of the RYO/MYO world. In a white paper tube it is sweet, mild on the tongue but with great character and finesse. It is potent, but not overly so. It is blendable and forms an excellent base. Quite literally, for a pipe smoker to say this is bad tobacco just shows their ignorance. In fact, it is one of the most excellent tobaccos in the world...extraordinary quality. However...It does not do as well in a pipe, being designed for a different 'modus operandi'.

Alright
For a cheap tobacco, it's not bad. When I'm in a pinch this is the go to. Not really anything to right home about, but all in all it gets the job done when all else is out. Would I buy again, probably; would I be thrilled about having to do so, not really.

My 1st disappointing pipe tobacco. I bought it based off the number of reviews but did not enjoy it, myself.

4.5 stars! Good stuff.
I ordered an ounce at first and I liked it so much, I ordered a pound. Have I found the one??? Great cut. Makes it easy to compact for hunting trips. Burns great, stays lit but never hot. Nice and smooth. Will order two different D&R tobaccos before I settle on this one for good. The quality is good enough that I have faith in them. Oh, and when you order the pound, the bag it comes in (from the manufacturer, not P&C's "re-bag") is great! Thick and actually airtight.

A decent smoke
The flavor profile is what you would expect after reading the description. I found it rather plain, but that's not a bad thing. It's a good middle-of-the-day smoke or a palate cleanser

Not what I expected
I know there is cheap cigarette tobacco that is labeled as pipe tobacco, but I didn't realize that was what Three Sails is. Too fine for me to smoke in pipe. Great for roll your own.
2 out of 5
Not for me
Hey! I think I just smoked a bale of Hay! or Straw, or dried lawn grass. This is definitely a roll your own cigarette tobacco. In the pipe it is not so great. Very mild, no backbone, no flavor other than grass. Citrus? That's a reach. Stuck with an "in case of emergency" bag of tobacco. Or I will give it to someone who smokes roll your own cigs.

D&R 3 Sails
I like the aroma and flavor when smoking 3S; however, the cut is too small for a pipe, doesn't pack and is really more for RYO cigs. I get that, but if 3S wants to get more of a wallet share with pipesters they need to make the cut more hefty like ribbon or shag. It's a mellow smoke, doesn't bite, has a low nic hit, and is generally an okay smoke for all day... if you don't mind dealing chaff now and again. I won't buy it again unless D&R change the cut.

Since I use this for rolling cigarettes, I was very disappointed in the smell, the thin, feathery cut and dryness of this tobacco. I've been using PS Virginia and Turkish and have now kicked myself in the keester for trying a cheaper brand. Not a fan...

The Results Are In: Best All Day Smoke-Daughters & Ryan Three Sails
After weeks of taste testing everyone's favorite tobaccos I found Daughters & Ryan Three Sails to be my favorite all day smoke. I reasoned that the tobaccos on P&C's Top Seller's pages just had to have my favorite too. It took me a couple of months to finally try Three Sails but the more I thought about what tobacco I wanted to smoke out of a big tobacco order, I kept returning to and liking the Three Sails best.

Warm but Smooth
Three Sails is strong for some, but is a smooth slow sipper for me. Just a little too fast and you will get burnt. I mix it with other blends according to my mood. Most often being mixed 50/50 with Five Brothers, Dark Flake Unscented, and Best Brown. Cut is very similar to Five Brothers, a bird nest. I'll probably reorder, but mostly for blending purposes. Pipes and Cigars is a reliable supplier.

Three Sails = Three Castles
I am not a daily smoker anymore, so when i do want to smoke, i want it to be the way i like it. Three Castles was the cut and flavor for me, but until i found this, i was out of luck. It hasn't been available for quite some time. The Three Sails is the same style of cut, flavor and texture (Virginian?) that came in the bright green pouch. I don't need to keep waiting anymore. This is the same flavor, texture and quality as Three Castles. Maybe better.

Customer Testimonials
This is great RYO tobacco. It's very mild and pleasant on it's own, but also makes the perfect blending component to add "condiments" to. You can add a little bit of basically anything to change up the flavor and still maintain a smooth, well burning smoke. Anyone searching for the perfect RYO smoke should start with this as the base. I like to add a tiny bit of Ryback, Ramback, or Perique.
This tobacco is great! I decided to give it a try and it payed off. This tobacco like another reviewer said is a great night time smoke. I used this to roll come cigarettes and they actually turned out pretty good. They get you a really nice buzz and the aroma is perfect for a nice cool night. Great tobacco!
I like it. it is the closest thing I could find to the original bali shag golden shag which if I am correct, was sold out by peter stokkebye to another company and promptly went to crap. I noticed the quality of thee sails lately has come down a bit since it first came out. for example, it looks like the last batch I got had stems which is not preferred. perhaps someone should mention it to d&r??? overall it is still a top choice, a close 2nd to the original golden shag and so far unmatched other than maybe the danish export from peter stokkebye.
Just got this tobacco in today and I got to say this is a very good night time smoke its on the strong side but very tasty. It has a classic American tobacco taste to is its nutty and semi sweet to me. If your looking for a nutty tasting tobacco this is a good choice or looking for something to bled your other tobacco's with to make stronger this is a good choice.
A great tobacco. I have used it for years and it has never disappointed. Aromatic, full bodied and very smooth. Highly recommended. Jr
