The first third is strange. Nothing exceptional going on in the first third. It doesn’t really taste like anything, not bad, but just any other cigar. In the second third it kicks into high gear and doesn’t let go! Wonderful rush flavors of espresso and sweet cocoa all the way to the end. If you can make it through the first third, you’re in for a treat!

Seems they always smoke this way:

“The Master Blends 3 hit its stride in the second third. The sweet smokey spice and the aromatic leafy cedar became the dominant flavors with earth playing a supporting role. Later on, black coffee and cinnamon emerged as sweet spice began to fade. I also picked up a brief graham note or two just at the end.”
