"A consistent demi-corona"

Review Notes: If there is a Achilles heel of most demi-coronas, in my experience, it has been a lack of consistency. Stumbling upon the San Cristobal El Principe, I was simply amazed, but the second and third times got progressively worse. However, my experiences with the Montecristo No. 5 have been consistent: it's not the best cigar ever, but it's a very nice, short cigar. Definite tastes of the No. 2, in a compact form. For the times you want a great cigar, set aside more time and sample some of Havana's larger offering; if you want a short, high-quality, consistent smoke, the No. 5 is your best bet. Another thing worthy of note is that, compared to all the other small cigars I've had, this cigar simply looked amazing, and the draw was perfection itself; never too much or too little.

"The single malt of Montecristo"

Review Notes: my only other experience with Montecristo [Cuba] was with the legendary number Twos. While the number two appears to have a delicate/creamy shadegrown wrapper, the no 2 is wrapped in a rich leathery sun grown wrapper, translating to a much fiery and earthier smoke. As a package I am in love with the no 2. Formal qualities (burn/construction) are impeccable as would be expected. The shape and size of the stick are what make it so unique and ellusive. Like a robusto, but more chic than brawny, and slightly box pressed, making it a pleasure to hold.

"Humidor Selection"

Review Notes: The Monte 5, confirms why this range of cigars is such a big seller. The 5 is simply a good smoke. Its packed full of flavours, complexity and finesse. Their is inconsistency in construction, and sure you will find a few duds in the box. I have found they light well, burn well. Draw may vary. Its not as finessed as a Monte 4 or as complete as a Monte 3, but its still good enough to stand with the others. Definitely Humidor Selection.

Review Notes: got a perfect light left 4 2 minutes to burn then first puff was followed by a lovely chocolaty coffee flavor about a 3rd of the way down a spicy after-taste followed. this one burnt perfect and the draw was just about perfect too.an excellent 20 min smoke.will add that some in the box don't smoke the same though
