"A Benchmark Cigar"

Review Notes: I've smoked two of these and the first one was almost two years old with the second one a little less than a year. Well, they were both delicious with the older being decididly the better. Not that it was so much smoother, but it was more flavorful and complex. That said I can readily see the benefits to proper aging in even an excellent cigar. At first it may seem a bit milder than you'd expect. I'm guessing that is because it so well blended and smooth. As you smoke it a bit more it really does involve you though. It has the smoothest cedar and leather of any Cuban I've smoked including the Montecristo no. 2. It really seems to just get better and better with other flavors entering into the mix as it warms up such as a sweet tea like taste and a toasty nut like flavor that really balances the cedar and leather notes present. Admittedly, with a whole box in my humi I should sit on them and let them age as I already noted the older one that was gifted me did smoke still better...But, with such an excellent taste already it will certainly be tempting to reach for them any time I have enough time to enjoy a leisurely smoke. I think this cigar is one of a few "benchmark" Cuban examples of why the whole Cuban cigar mystique exists. Get several of these and stagger the age on them. This is truly a wonderful smoke and smoking them at different ages is downright fun as well as a treat!

Review Notes: I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. It delivers the right amount of full flavour and complexity for me. From the first puff to the nub, just got better. First experience was a couple from a sampler. Ended up buying a box that's resting right now.

Review Notes: Decided to celebrate a bit on my birthday and dug this 3 year old cigar out of my humidor. What better way to celebrate adding another year to the meter than with a cigar named after everybody's favorite dealer of vengeance and a dram of old Islay single malt. I wasn't too impressed with the first 10 minutes of puffing. Flavors appeared a quite muted and the burn was not being compliant. After the first quarter, the Edmundo did end up exhibiting its flavor a lot more. Although this has been called a stronger and more flavorful cigar than some of MC's other offerings, I must say that I found it to be a bit milder. Some of this probably had to do with my choice in drink. All in all, a enjoyable way to spend 90 minutes, but perhaps not to be paired with Caol Ila...

"Better then Expectations"

Review Notes: When the Edmundo came out a few years ago most initial reviews of the cigar were not impressive and so I passed on the cigar. I bought these cigars after smoking the Petit Edmundo. My initial reaction was not good. The cigars started off bland and then turned into something like a Petit Edmundo but not as good. However, as I purchased more boxes and allowed them to age (or possibly because quality improved) they improved. They look fine and smell great. The construction, burn, and aroma are nearly perfect. The cigars are also generally consitent and reliable. Otherwise the cigar has the classic Montecristo flavor. It's not as strong as a Montecristo #2 but more mild and fresh. It tastes of vanilla, cream, nuts, cedar and tea leaves. Midway through the flavor is similar to a Petit Edmundo but slightly more mild. Towards the end the cream and cedar flavor intensifies and there's a strong taste of leather. I would recommend the Petit Edmundo initially and if you agree with me and think they're great try the Edmundo.

Review Notes: I'm always surprised at how easy going these cigars are. The flavor is smooth and mild yet had a subtle richness to it. They are very nice cigars. They're a little pricy at $14 a stick, but not bad given their size and quality.
