Danashan Posted April 13, 2010 Share Posted April 13, 2010 What the heck, I'll through the hat in too. My first review of anything ever. Nice Sunday, quite cold and windy. I keep telling myself it is April and it could be snowing. Have to be outside to keep an eye on my daughter playing so no excuse to not enjoy a cigar This stick was part of 5 pack bought off Czar's few months ago. So far, Montecristo and I have not been friends - he took my money and have not given me much pleasure. Hmm, that did not sound right Good construction and nice easy draw, just as I like it! Nothing on cold draw, which doesn't say much since I do not usually pick up anything from unlit stick. Started off as nice toasted tobacco. Fairly deep flavour, just very plain Jane, so to speak. This lasted entire first third. Matching well to my cup of espresso, but somewhat boring. Second third a change to dark roast coffee and cream with splash of vanilla. Nice! Is that what Montecristo should be like? It is the first one that gave me that flavor profile. Last third cream disappeared and toasted tobacco returned. May be some very robust coffee in it as well, not sure. Again, while not unpleasant, fairly boring. All in all, nice experience and by far the best Monte I've had so far. I do really pity poor chaps that are presented with Monte #4 "The Classic Cigar" as their first cigar experience. With that much inconsistency, I'd never recommend one as a first cigar someone ever tries, since I would have no idea what would they taste. I'll give it 87/100.
