Review: Tres Puntas Green by El Septimo
A 3 in 1 cigar designed to be smoked as one or by the whole, this cigar offers a generous model in ventilation, and packs a lot of nerve! Spicy flavors with subtle notes and a remarkable strength characterize this cigar.

I was already very familiar with the green series from El Septimo. I had an idea of what I was in for, but as always every cigar is slightly different. I had high expectations for this gem of a cigar.
Nothing changes here to much. I get a good scent and aroma from the cigar. I like to pre game that way. I did separate these cigars and smoke one of the three. I made my cut and prepared to smoke.
Lighting, Draw, and Burn:
Lighting was in the odd size for me. Not that it was bad to light it was just different due to the bent shape and small gauge. The draw was actually very pleasant. Just right with every puff. The burn was even for the cigar being twisted. It did burn a little off, but that is just the nature of this type of cigar. No touch-ups needed.
This cigar has loads of flavor right from the beginning. It starts off with a strong flavor of pepper and mixed earthy spices. Shortly into the first third the pepper and spices remain very much in the picture, but take a backseat to the flavors of leather and dark chocolate. As I entered the second third everything stayed the same with the exception of strong notes of caramel and toffee. The final third was very smooth with all flavors remaining. The leather, dark chocolate, caramel, and toffee seemed to all even out with the pepper to compliment. This had just the right amount of sweetness to let you know it was there, but not so much that it overtook the flavors.
This premium cigar was ready on arrival. I did give it one day in the humidor since I always do that. My cut was made with a Les Fines Lames cigar cutter knife. My source of fire was the El Septimo black and gold jet lighter.
This cigar rates very high on my list as do all the offerings from the green series. It packs a punch form beginning to end. The flavor profile mixes perfectly. This is a cigar that is made to enjoy to the fullest. It will not disappoint. If you want a luxury, flavor filled, full bodied cigar this could be the one for you.
