Review Notes: Typical for Montecristo...My first Afrique was wonderful, the stick I had yesterday was average tasting at best. All it offered was a one dimensional, shallow, tobacco flavor all through. Construction was fine. Tread cautiously with these as I think Monty is once again having consistency issues within a brand. When they are "on" they can be superb.

Review Notes: This is a med to full bodied smoke. It is not as well balanced as other smokes, but that can make a smoke better if you like a play of tastes. It had a kind of floral taste, like good incense (I hate insense, so I qualify it as good).

Review Notes: I went to smoke this thinking this would be a typical "Monty-mental" disappointment. I was wrong. It was my first, and upon finishing, it certainly will not be my last Monty Afrique. This was a different tasting, medium bodied, and enjoyable, cigar. The wrappers on these are paper thin and very delicate...store accordingly, mine was a mess at the foot. She lit and smoked quite well in spite of the messy foot. The aroma was intoxicating and very different from any Cameroon I have smoked before (including the Perdomo 2, Compay, C.T. 1916, H Up., COA L'Anniv., and the Vegas De Fonseca...all of which are nice) The flavor had that distinct cammy twang that I always have a difficulty with in describing. Other than the twang there was a nice spice flavor and some mocha and coffee within a slightly sweet tobacco base. These flavors all melded smoothly together to hit my palate just right. There were a couple of moments of some harshness, but aging should correct that. I stored this for about 2 months at 70-72% humidity. It lasted about an hour and 30 minutes. To me this was a very enjoyable different tasting type of cameroon that really surprised me especially coming from a maker that usually disappoints me. I think I paid about $4/stick. A fine value.

"Poor Burn"

Review Notes: I was excited to try this and was annoyed that it did not deliver. The issue is with the burn. This cigar forced me to draw it 3 times before each I could get any smoke...l was patient with this for about 10 minutes and then decided it was just too much work. I'll let the other 2 sit in the box awhile.
