Wow, this is one beautiful cigar. It is satiny and smooth to the touch. The cellophane is yellow from 13 years of contact with this beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper.

The pre-light draw was easy and the cigar lit very easily from the flame of my IM Corona lighter. The flavors, as expected were mild, but numerous. I was hit with waves of cream and wood, leather and nuts, with some of the Kelner mustiness thrown in as well.

The ash burned red hot leaving the most striking white ash I have ever seen. It did not heat up the cigar too much and the burn was dead on even. The exhale is rich with creamy coffee and nuts with some leather and grass.

The Davidoff Mille 3000 burned flawlessly another example of the artistry of Henrik Kelner. I enjoyed every minute I spent with this cigar!

Overall the cigar was creamy and woody, mild but with a lot of flavor still after 13 years. It was a pleasure to get the opportunity to try it!

One Comment on “Davidoff Mille Series 3000 (Quick Smoke Series)”

  1. A bit surprisingly, Davidoff has now discontinued offering both its 3000 and 4000 in the Mille series, though these sticks can still be found in the humidor rooms of finer European (non-Davidoff) cigar shops. As someone who prefers mild-to-medium cigars, I have always been a bit indulgent of the often-lovely Davidoffs, despite the price point & how quickly some of them tend to burn.

    The MIlle series was a great concept so it seems a bit odd for Davidoff to leave these gaps in the Mille numerical line-up.

    The other day I couldn’t resist picking up a beautiful Mille 4000 ‘Corona Larga’ (length 155mm – 6 3/32″, by 17.06mm – 43 ring gauge). That cigar was unique in the Davidoff range as the largest cigar Davidoff considered both ‘mild’ & ‘sweet & creamy’. It was an elegant hour’s smoke, though draw was a bit tight. I enjoyed its subtlety of flavours & gentle aromas … but in the end felt it wasn’t quite as extraordinary as I would have liked for the high tariff.
