"Still Among the Best"

Review Notes: For my 500th review I selected an old friend, the Monty Robusto. I still appreciate it unassuming style and elegance, and it's subtle but nutty/salty flavor. No gimmicks, just an excellent simple cigar. Sure they're a little pricey, and sometimes the flavor is not as consistent as I'd like. In other words, about every fifth one is not as tasty as the other four. I'm more likely to age a $6 cigar like this Monty then a $2 stick and these are much better with about a year on them. For me, a person who like mild or medium cigars this is a favorite.

Review Notes: This should be a $4 cigar, not $7. Still it was decent but nothing special. A bit spicy with a long bitter finish and very nice aroma. First half burned great but then started exploding on me. Nice white ash. smoked to 1 1/2".

Review Notes: My brother gave me 2 boxes which he did not have stored in a humidor. nursed them back to health after 2 years in my end table sized humidor and I am pleased with thier recovery. They are a medium to full bodied smoke with tastes of cedar, leather and spice. The finish is sublime. The one negative aspect was an uneven burn. This particular cigar I just finished was a Platinum series.

"Smooth Operator"

Review Notes: A medium (UPS) brown with few veins in this firmly packed stick. Easy draw with a nice even burn. The mild flavor was fairly consistent, like roasted nuts. A slight sweetness from the dark wrapper. No harshness detected in this cigar sampler mainstay. I was hoping for more depth of flavor in a cigar this expensive. A quality mild smoke that can be enjoyed anytime.

"Subtle quality"

Review Notes: I use the word "subtle" because it would be very easy for some smokers to easily overpass this cigar or be unimpressed since it is not what I call an "in your face" cigar like a Rocky Patel Edge or La Flor Dominicana. If you are one to smoke mostly full bodied cigars, this one may seem on the mild/medium side. On the other hand if you mostly enjoy mild cigars, this would probably be on the medium side for you. Its all about where you are coming from on the cigar spectrum; and what time of day (before meal, after meal?). The first one I smoked a year or so ago I was not too impressed, but I always like to come back again to a cigar if it has a reputation for being a quality smoke. This time I made sure that this was the only cigar I smoked today so I had a clean palate to work with. A beautifully rolled cigar, definitely lived up to the name. The draw was just right, not too loose nor tight. For the first 1/3 I had an even burn. A medium smoke with a unique "mature" flavor. A creamy, a bit of light sweetness. I had to be careful not to over-smoke this since it had such subtle flavors that could get burned out. The second 1/3 started to burn a little uneven, but after a very light touch up it was smooth sailing. If you are a cigar lover, this is obviously is a cigar that should be experienced just so it can be put in your "flavor memory bank". For the price there are so many other fine cigars to be enjoyed these days so it makes it hard for me to justify smoking these regularly. If you can find a nice sampler that includes this cigar that isn't a bad idea. I received a sampler which made this cigar cost only $3.00- not bad! Happy smoking!
