John Cotton's Number 3

This item is no longer available for purchase.
See similar items below.

John Cotton's Number Three is a great addition to their English blend lineup. Like most of their other Latakia-based blends, there are wonderful Virginias and Orientals joining smoky Cyprian Latakia, but what sets Number Three apart is the addition of just enough Perique to add depth, spice and sweetness, making this a perfect late-evening repast.

Surprising Flavor
To those who are not used to an English blend, it may seem a bit harsh, but it has a surprising room note and is great for after dinner or with a good whiskey.

A great blend
I’ve tried all the John Cotton blends and I like them all. This blend has just the right amount of perique. I smoke it when I am ready for something a little extra than my favorite oriental/latakie blend such as John Cotton’s 1.

Action speak louder then words... Bought one tin on a whim, then before I even finished that tin ordered another 20(!) tins . Of course it helped that I happened to catch an amazing sale promotion which since ended, unfortunately. Shared some with members of my pipe club, and all responses were equally enthusiastic Amazingly rounded and matured tobacco inspite of being so new. Wonderful discovery. Wonderful English tobacco. My best compliments to Russ Aulett for this.

Great Taste and Aroma
One of my go to favorites. Well balanced blend with just the right amount of latakia and perique. Great flavor and aroma, and a very smooth smoke. More expensive than many comparable blends but well worth it. I look forward to every bowl.

One of the very best English blends there is
I'm excited to write this review. This is one of my favorite tobacco blends of all time. It is so flavorful and so satisfying, the quintessential English blend. This is an unsung hero mixture for the pipe and everyone who loves English blends should try it. John Cotton's Number 3 is as good as it gets.

A Rich and Flavourful English Blend
I really like this blend. My pallet is not as refined as a lot of people's as I don't seem to be able to pick out all of the subtle hints of this and that and pears picked on the third day of August etc. But I do know what I like, and I really like this blend. The perique is obvious but not overpowering. It seems to bring out the flavours of the other tobaccos and bring them together in a very well balanced mixture. Along with the Cerebrus by Hearth and Home, this has become one of my favourite English blends. I will be getting this again.
