A few days back, Room 101 posted a photo on their Facebook indicating that the Master Collection Three was slated for February. For those unaware, the Master Collection was launched in late 2013 with the Room 101 Master Collection One and was followed shortly thereafter by the Master Collection Two in 2014. They were both one run, limited edition releases that came in the same five vitolas.
The Master Collection Three will likewise come in those five vitolas
A total of 105,000 cigars will be released divided between five sizes. Even though the photo from a few days back showed the boxes, there were no pictures of the bands or the cigars themselves. No surprise, the band is white and black to match the boxes. Color-wise, the wrapper leaf sits somewhere between the San Andrés Maduro of the Master Collection One and lightly shaded Criollo of the Master Collection Two.
The Master Three utilizes an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Dominican binder and Nicaraguan fillers.

AS THE MOUTHWATERING TASTE OF THE THIRD AND FINAL INSTALLMENT OF OUR MASTER COLLECTION CASCADES OVER YOUR TASTE BUDS AND CRASHES DOWN ON TO YOUR PALATE LIKE A 900 POUND SACK OF FLAVOR NAILS, I COMPEL YOU TO CONSIDER SOMETHING. WHAT ELEMENTS CAN TRULY COMPRISE THE FLAVOR OF “THE END”?
DEEP, I KNOW. FOR EXAMPLE, BY THE TIME YOUR OCULAR UNITS GRAZE UPON THIS TEXT I WILL BE STRADDLING A LOUNGE CHAIR JUST OUTSIDE OF BOYS TOWN IN PATTAYA BEACH, THAILAND SIPPING A NON SPECIFIC UMBRELLA LADEN BEVERAGE, ADORNED IN THE FINEST OF EUROPEAN SWIMWEAR (PURCHASED SECOND HAND OF COURSE), BEING FANNED WHILST PEERING OUT ACROSS THE INEXPLICABLY BROWN SEA WATER.
WHAT, YOU MAY ASK, DOES THIS CLAYMORE-ESQUE VISUAL EXPLOSION HAVE TO DO WITH FINE CIGARS?
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I SIMPLY WANT THIS IMAGE TO LIVE INSIDE YOUR MIND RENT-FREE FOREVER – FOR MY OWN PERSONAL SATISFACTION. FOR “FUNSIES” IF YOU WILL…
OK, ACTUALLY THAT’S NOT ENTIRELY TRUE EITHER. MY BEACH SCENE WAS, AMONG OTHER THINGS, A SNAPSHOT FROM THE GOOD LIFE. WITH CIGAR IN HAND, ENJOYING THIS ULTIMATELY PLEASURABLE MOMENT IS THIS INDIVIDUAL SOMEONE’S (MAYBE NOT YOURS, SPECIFICALLY) “GOOD LIFE” MOMENT. IN THIS SAME WAY, I WOULD LIKE YOU ALL TO IMMERSE YOURSELVES IN YOUR OWN MOMENT WITH OUR MASTER COLLECTION THREE.
WRAPPER. YES. BINDER. UH-HUH. FILLER. INDEED.
WHATEVER. IT’S OVER NOW, SO SMOKE IT UP. MASTER COLLECTION THREE – BECAUSE TWO SIMPLY WASN’T ENOUGH.
