Review Notes: Smoked my first #3 tonight, with a decent amount of age on it....Liked it better than the other "smaller" Montes I have smoked. Had a definite chocolate flavor at the beginning, that quickly became more of a coffee and subtle spice through the 1st half. The second half was filled with cream flavor, like a Boston cup of joe. The draw yielded tons of smoke, though the burn was a bit crooked in the 2nd half and took a couple touch ups. If I could find a 90s box of these I would buy it in a heartbeat!

Review Notes: This was my first venture away from any other montecristo besides the #2 and the petite edmundo. I love this smoke, and I think that a corona size cigar is perfect for the Monte flavor to come out. It is a beautiful stick with very fun veins and creamy looking wrapper. I tasted cream galore when I sparked it, but was disappointed that I got a large run in the first 1/4 of the cigar. After that it ran well, with bountyless smoke that tastes like butter but still pack a punch.

Review Notes: This cigar did not live up to the #4's that I like. It kept teasing me with some flavors but never opened up. Gave me a good buzz though and the burn was decent.

Review Notes: This 5 ˝” x 42 slightly box-pressed stick with box code PUL 5/01 sports a Colorado wrapper with fine hairs and minimal veins. The traditional triple cap is present. Solid construction without soft spots. Rich barnyard aroma on prelight. Easy light. Firm draw. Fairly even burn without the need for relights or corrections. Gray-black flakey ash. Started with mild pepper. The first third brought mild leather, nuts, and tobacco. The flavors were very subtle, indicating to me this could be an older cigar vs. a fairly indescript, almost bland, blend. The middle third saw the tobacco flavor assume a toasted quality, along with a slight woodsy taste and a slight “twang”. The last third introduced a very mild grassy note, more toasted tobacco, and a slight bitterness towards the end. All in all, this mild-bodied, one-hour smoke was nothing special for me. I kept waiting for flavors to intensify, introduce themselves, or open up, but alas this never happened in the sample I smoked. Paired with black coffee. Perhaps it would have done better with water…..
