Three Year Matured is a medium blend consisting of red (and other) Virginias, a pinch of Oriental leaf, and a very, very subtle fruit essence, leaving the flavors of the tobaccos themselves clear and intact. A Dunhill classic now returned after a long absence.
This is a great blend from one of the Masters. There is a topping added to it. A Citrus and other fruits. But I didn't really realized it untill I read info about it. But I still do enjoy this one. Especially in the Autumn months with good

Topping is not noticeable in my opinion. Orientals are sitting way on the back burner as is any Turkish. Mellow and smooth to begin, hearty and stout to finish. Treat this one carefully. Long soft puffs will get you the most out of this.
I love McConnell's 5 year matured, so of course that is a direct result of my love for this particular blend from Dunhill. The two are similar, yet stand apart. Flavors are similar, but I can tell the difference. This has a regular spot in my tobacco... Read More rotations. ~J Read Less
This is one of my most outstandingly consistent and enjoyed blends! The Virginias are smooth and creamy with just the right balance of age and sweetness for me. The topping is just a dream of an essence that does not distract from the great tobacco... Read More flavor one bit. I have always enjoyed Dunhills discrete ribbon cut and this is no exception.

Dunhill Three Year Matured is back! Three Year Matured is a full-tasting, well-rounded Virginia blend. It's not so much sweet, but has a matured dryness like a good bottle of wine or scotch. There's the taste of dark, heavy bread and oats, along wit... Read Moreh an herbal spiciness, which I suspect is due to the presence of a "pinch of oriental leaf." It burns cool even in my most finicky pipes and is gentle on the tongue. I sometimes smoke a little too voraciously, and Three Year Matured has never bitten me. If you're worried about the addition of a "fruit essence," don't be. It is truly as "subtle" as promised by the description. I only noted its presence occasionally in the side-stream aroma.Having only had a chance to sample a fresh tin, I look forward to trying this after it has been aged a bit. Read Less
I'm not normally a smoker of aromatics, preferring English with varying degrees of Latakia. But, I bought this on a whim and gave it a shot. Smoked it in a Dunhill, well, just because. Found it not unpleasant but somewhat underwhelming. Nicotine hit... Read More seemed strong. Smoked a bit hot so had no problem keeping it lit. Second third of the bowl was the best. Toward the end though it did remind me of cigarettes, which kind of defeats the purpose of the pipe.
Not sure I’d buy this again. Read Less
Tobacco has a gray coating and a pleasant aroma smoked immediately from a can. The humidity was perfect. The taste was very pleasant.
The last batch came very moistly (humidity 80%). The aroma from the jar is weak, honey. I put it off for later.
I tried the recent version, have not met the original so i can not compare but its by itself a pretty decent smoke, sweet and a little citrus are the main flavors and as you give it its time and you know it better its better, its a ligth VA blend but... Read More a ejoyable one. Read Less
A foul tasting "aromatic" blend. Rated #2 in sales on this website? Get real... we all know better. The taste of this tobacco is awful.

Dunhill Three Year Matured Virginia is an excellent Dunhill tobacco. I am smoking a 2019 purchased fresh tin from Smoking Pipes , SC USA ; smoked fresh from the tin .

I smoke TYMV in large to extra large James Upshall and Tilshead bowls where the fine ribbon cut burns consistently well and provides an outstanding matured red Virginia experience. There may be other Virginias and Oriental tobaccos in the mixture , but when I pick TYMV up I pick it up as a matured red Virginia , with an excellent deep mature red Virginia flavor and excellent burn . Strong nicotine , smoke it under your favorite tree , you will be amazed. Highly recommended. Read Less

It is supposed to be a Virginia Mixture with Oriental, “lightly flavoured with a mixed fruit essence”, as the official description states. Regarding flavouring, the reviews range from 1 to 10, that is from “none detected” to “extra strong”. Nearly th... Read Moree same spread regarding “strength” and “taste”. This inconsistency highly irritates me.
On opening the tin I smell bread/yeast from the Red Virginia and some vinegary sourness from fermentation of the matured Virginia, that’s all, neither Orientals nor artificial flavours. Let’s see, which aromas will appear upon smoking:
Good burning conditions. There is not much taste, it’s faint. The most obvious being that of matured or stoved Virginia, a bread/yeast note that is, hiding away the hay/grass notes. The small amount of Oriental leaf is noticeable and welcome. All aromas (good and bad) are quite irregular while smoking through the bowl. Some might find this interesting. I am not able to describe and specify the added flavouring. The tragedy is, that this artificial flavouring hinders most of the natural tobacco aromas to unfold, and the subtle ones are totally suffocated. Like many other artificial flavours do, it releases bitter tastes. At the end of the bowl I don’t know what I have been smoking and I am left behind with an unpleasant, weary after-taste.
It is misleading to call this mixture TREE YEAR MATURED VIRGINIA! It does not taste like an honest Virginia Blend. It is an indefinable, obvious Aromatic. It lacks in body, depth, character and taste. A disappointment. I can’t recommend it. Read Less

Read Moreed this rather quickly due to an impending storm and to my surprise there was absolutely no bite. 😛 About halfway through it starts picking up more earthy, mineral flavors though still remaining smooth and mellow.

I never had the original but this is a solid blend of VA's. the fruit topping is very subtle and lets the tobacco shine. No bite, even if puffed at a higher cadence. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this blend ages.
I smoked this fresh right out of the tin in a Missouri Meerschaum Wasp, this stuff bit like a rabid dog, it smoked hot, harsh and largely flavorless. The tin note was nice, not much of a top dressing noticeable, it wasn't too moist or dry, it was jus... Read Moret about perfect.
