Blue Mountain Cigars El Threesome

Friday, November 16th, 2012

Thanks to Blue Mountain Cigars for sending me a few cigars. I had one sample of the cigar up for review today. Normally I’d smoke two or three before reviewing, but there are always exceptions. I know very little about this company, but more information can be found at their website. On to the review!


Wrappers: Connecticut, Habano, Maduro

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: 6 x 60

Price: Around $7.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

I’m sure you’ve noticed the triple wrappers. The maduro wrapper at the head was very delicate and oily. The Habano middle section was velvety smooth. Finally, the Connecticut wrapper at the foot rounded things out. This cigar was evenly packed. I mean PACKED like a rock. This led to a draw that was a bit to snug for my liking. The pre-light flavor was earthy and bitter. The aroma of the wrapper and foot was cedar mixed with barnyard.

The burn required two minor corrections, and the ash held for about two inches.

The first third was very basic. Earthiness with a touch of nuttiness just about sums it up. Through the nose, a slight pepper. The smoke feel was dry and crisp, which left me feeling parched.

Some of the large ring gage cigars can mute the effect of the wrapper. As predicted, the transition into the second third, which was the Habano wrapper, showed minimal change. There was a touch of wood, but earthiness remained the dominant flavor. Slight nutty notes were far in the background. Pepper increased slightly, and was only noticeable though the nose. Like before, the smoke feel left me craving water.

The last third was the maduro wrapper. An increase in pepper, along with a slight bitter sweet component, were introduced. The change was subtle, and a predictable maduro effect. Otherwise, that core earthiness was the focus of the flavor profile.

This was an OK cigar. The flavors were very basic, but not bad. I suspect a smaller ring gage would have allowed the wrappers to stand out much more. I am no expert though, and I could be wrong. The flavor profile was consistent and one dimensional. I think this cigar would go well with coffee. Pairing with water was just too bland. Keep in mind, this is a first impressions review. If I happen to run across these in the future, I’ll give it another shot.
