Capstan. Three Nuns. The mention of these two famous blends, I trust, has gotten your attention. Both mixtures are practically antediluvian in origin, dating back to the days when the entire concept of a standardized, much less famous blend of pipe tobacco was first born. They were already long-established as smoking mixtures of refinement and trustworthy, consistent quality when two of their most famous aficionados, J.R.R. Tolkien and his friend C.S. Lewis, would have taken their first puffs.
However, for those of us on this side of the Atlantic, they've been unavailable by normal means for decades.. until now. Yes, that's right -- Capstan, in its mild Yellow and medium Blue mixtures, both in flake and ready-rubbed form, as well as the Three Nuns coins are all soon to arrive here, at Smokingpipes exclusively for the next three months. As many of you may already know Imperial has of late entrusted these time-honored formulas to the fine blenders at Mac Baren, and fortunately for us all, Mac Baren has seen fit to make them available on our shores once more.
