"Great Expectations"

Review Notes: I have only smoked one of these to date and I tried hard to approach it objectively. But "everyone knows" this is a great cigar and an expectation that strong tends to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. I wonder what I would have thought in a blinded test? That said, the cigar has a nice appearance with a rather strong pre-light aroma. The one I smoked was well constructed, maybe a little tight on the draw. The flavor was medium in strength, slightly spicy, with overall a very nice taste of (surprise) tobacco. I enjoyed the smoke but really found it hard to be objective about the experience.

Review Notes: this was my last chance for the cuban. out of many, all were more trouble than they were worth. Not this, the flagship lives up to its name. appearance lacks, as on a lot of cubans, but the rich flavor I heard about was finally there. lots of rich flavorful smoke. I <3 punch gran puro, and have yet to smoke a punch habana, but this is the 1st cigar that meets all my needs. ROCK ON!

"Had to splurge on a box"

Review Notes: This cigar came from a SEP05 box, which I recently purchased via Hong Kong. It was a very nice looking stick, but not exquisite. Construction was suprisingly good, despite the horror stories I had heard about recent batches of Monte #2's. Prelight it had a very sweet aroma, almost nauseatingly so. The smoke starts out great from the first puff. I normally don't enjoy most cigars until several draws in, but this was tasty right from the get-go. I immediately noticed the richness of the thick smoke -- richness that only comes from top-notch tobacco. I haven't smoked many Cubans, but the first 3rd of this one tasted a lot like a H. Upmann(Cuba) Lonsdale I had a few weeks back--very mild, creamy, and smooth. If I had to pick a weakness of this cigar, it would be the middle third, where the experience seemed to stall a bit, before picking up steam for the spicy finish. Overall, this cigar makes it into my top 5 easily, especially at the price I got them. US$231 for a box of 25! This one was great out of the box but I can't wait to see how well the other 24 age!

Review Notes: That unreal Cuban taste. Draw is a tad tight but not so much that it distracts from the smoke. My new favorite.

"Excellent Monte"

Review Notes: This Monte had the best flavors I have had in any Monte besides the ELs. A sweet prelight flavor, an easy draw with lots of smoke and a perfect razor sharp burn. The flavors were a mix of nuts and cocoa with a relatively flat finish. Not as spicy as some of the Montes I've had but the creaminess didn't detract from the smoke in any way.
