Gran Habano 3 Siglos
Size: 7.0 x 50
Tobacco: Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Columbia
Price: $7-8 (retail), $3 (online)
I've read such great reviews of this cigar on Puff.com, I thought 3 Siglos was Gran Habano's top-of-the-line offering. However, I read today that a trademark dispute is forcing the company to discontinue this line. They're selling for $3 over at CigarsInternational, which is less than half of MSRP.
I was supremely disappointed. After an initial peperry blast, this stick mellows into mild-to-medium with notes of nuts and grass. It burns well, but nothing special going on.
I'm not surprised it's being discontinued.
