gk404 Posted July 1, 2010 Share Posted July 1, 2010 Today is Canada Day for us Canucks and so I thought it would be a good reason to light up a Monty Edmundo I've been saving. I bought this as a single on a recent trip to Cuba and I have been saving it for a nice day. With the temp 21oC and partly cloudy skies I decided it's time had come. Construction was flawless, wrapper a nice shade. It looked delicious. Aroma was somewhat faint, with the scent of light tobacco. Draw was good although slightly on the light side, which I did not expect based on the density of tobacco. It started out a little rough with woody/leathery flavour. I also tasted a hint of oak. Second third mellowed out somewhat with coffee flavour coming through turning slightly milky as it went on. In the last third, the tobacco flavour intensified a little and the coffee taste got a little stronger reminiscent of espresso. Overall I was somewhat underwhelmed. Its appearance raised my expectations and it the end it didn't deliver as promised. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy it but I was expecting more. I would rate this a good solid cigar but nothing extraordinary. Enjoy the pics Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
