Not on par with the No. 1 or 2, the No. 3 is still a well made cigar but was probably made to fill a gap in the sizes offered in the range. Without ageing the rough Bolivar tobacco taste hardly succeeds in finding a balance. Good marks for spice near the end with decent Bolivar aromas, yet lower marks for the smoking experience. Certainly not the worst cigar as the burn was very consistent but just not interesting.
