Blue Mountain Cigars El Threesome Toro

Blue Mountain Cigars El Threesome Toro Cigar
This El Threesome from Blue Mountain Cigars came my way via Cigar Train. They're a bit hard to find, but you buy these cigars at  Planetcigars.com $146.97 for a box of 24.

Covered by three different wrappers this El Threesome is a real eye catcher. It starts on the foot with a claro colored (Connecticut) section then there's the Colorado claro (habano) mid section, while the head is covered by a chunk of very dark oscuro colored (maduro) wrapper. With three sections of wrapper there are lots of seams, but they were all fairly tight. Veins varied by wrapper and the ocsuro section had some nice sandpaper like tooth. From the cold foot there were notes of brown sugar while the firm draw had a barnyard flavor.

Once a flame was put to the foot, the very first very mild bodied flavors were a mix of cream with a hint of spice. After a few draws the cream and spice faded to be replaced by what I can only describe as wet straw. Once the burn hit the habano section the flavors changed to spicy oak, more cream and brown sugar. When the burn reached the oscuro, the flavors peaked. There were notes of charcoal, molasses, chocolate and espresso. The Threesome finished it's sixty-five minute burn with a nice mix of charcoal and chocolate.

Overall it was a good cigar, but it did have a burn problem. In the habano section the burn canoed and needed correction twice.

Rated 89

I would like to thank Cigar Train for supplying this cigar for review!
