Excellent long smoke.
3P's quickly became a favorite of mine. It takes some prep, but once in the pipe it is a smooth and easy smoke that packs a little punch on the backend. It smokes nice and cool, and for a long time. An excellent tobacco for outdoor activities.

Perfect is in the name.
I always try different tobacco; different flavors, different manufacturers, and I always come back to this. By far my favorite.

Nice smoke for the price.
This is my first plug Tobbaco l got three tin's to test. Chopped off some flakes and rubbed it out let dry for half an hour. Smokes very well pretty strong which I like very much. I let it age for a month on my second smoke, it was noticably smother.I will buy again going to dedicate a pipe to this tobacco. If you haven't tried this, it's worth the time and extra effort. This is going into my rotation.

I had to use a sharp kitChen knife to "shave" one side and I was left with a wonderfully flavored flake! I like to rub them out. I will order more.

Peterson 3P
I THINLY sliced the plug and fully rubbed it out before smoking. A nice strong smoke with good flavor. One for the cellar.

No aftertaste I seem to from other plugs. Thumb up!
Favorite plug so far. I smoked it in a brog pear pipe that I aggressively clean with alcohol, which seems to love the heavy hitters. No relights. No bitter after taste that I get from Old Dark Fired, Jackknife, Solani ABF. This could be a pipe review more than tobacco review. I am anxious to try it in my other plug pipes. Because this whole bowl had a great strong flavor with no bitter after taste I get from the others mentioned. I am buying a bunch more.

Excellent beyond words!
I've tried many flake and plug tobaccos, with Dunhill Flake being one of my favorites. But this stuff is some of the best tasting pipe tobacco I've ever tried. Mild, flavorful and slow burning. I prepare this stuff like peeling the skin off of an apple. Use a very sharp knife, cut it very thin, and gravity pack it loose with a very light tamp. Two lights and it's ready to go.

Fruit of Concrete
A fruity surprise with floral notes. Have to let it dry a little. Not easly cut even with a razor sharp knife. But worth the effort.

A fine smoke
A bit milder than university flake.

Great smoke
I'm always on the move so I like plug tobacco because it keeps it moisture and consistency with out to much attention.

Managed to smoke it
I enjoyed the plug format. I like the tin. The tobacco was unimpressive and the casing left my tongue numb and mouth bitter. I would not buy it again.

What in the world is that?
Take a can of this out and pull out the plug. Carefully get it ready for the pipe and watch the questions start. It smokes good too.

Refreshing and well balanced.
Currently I'm not into aromatics that much, but I always have a very good time smoking a bowl of 3P's. It is an easy going burley forward blend with a nice sweetness and fruitiness. The flavoring is not dominant but refreshing and very well balanced. The plug is very dense. I cut the whole plug into slices and put them back in the tin to be ready without the need of a knife. I smoke it almost every day.

Galway's go to smoke.
This is just plain cool to work with. Mixes with Virginia flake and Latakia in a very subtle way but adds horsepower to the blend.

Mild Aromatic
I am not overly a fan of aromatics. However, 3p's is a really nice tobacco that burns well and leaves a fine ash. I really like this tobacco.

Customer Testimonials
I didn't notice any fruit taste but a little sweet and a really good basic tobacco flavor. It was a little bit of a challenge for me to learn how to cut it but now that I have that mastered I am ordering more. I have discovered that I can slice it however I consider best for the type and size pipe that I will be smoking it in.
GD of Montross, VA
A very robust tobacco, simple tobacco taste not complex but I tasted hints of oak in it. I didn't taste the fruity flavors as the fresh out of the tin smell lets on. It does have a noticeable nicotine rush, but not overwhelming. I would say the overall experience was like smoking a good cigar. I cut the plug loosened it up and folded it in the bowl, next time I try I'll fully rub out.
AV of Fullerton, CA
I'm about halfway through my first plug of 3P and it is a most enjoyable smoke. I smoke it in a small Turkish Meerschaum because it is a nicotine rich smoke. This is a true tobacco flavor, not complex at all but very tasty. I like it in the evening after dinner with a good craft ale.
RS of Austin, TX
Reviews are very subjective, so with that in mind I took the plunge and tried Peterson's 3P's. Expecting a overwhelming intense rush of tobacco heaviness I was completely taken back by my test run. Firstly, yes the tobacco is on the robust side, and yes it has a very full bodied texture to the smoke. Secondly, the casing was not detected by me, even though the tin note reminded me of figs. Not a complex smoke at all, very straight forward, one dimensional, no nonsense tobacco. Finally, the nicotine content is on the higher side, nothing too overwhelming (I do not inhale), and manageable with a nice glass of adult beverage. Will smoke again, enjoyed the full bodied tobacco flavor.
WB of Norwood, PA
Great taste. Easy to work with and hardly ever goes out. Wife likes the smell so that's a big plus.
