Review Notes: Monte '93 Club Cabinet #20 & #40 were some of the best sticks I ever smoked. However, the strange thing is that I found boxes with certain factory codes (3 letter) were far superior to some others. The good Montes had these certain codes in the darker wood cabinet and they aren't being made anymore. The newer version has a lighter wood cab. and the ones I tried were harsh and almost unsmokable, just like some of the older cabs with factory codes that weren't the same as the good ones... That being said...the best of these cigars (and they got better after about 6 months in my humi) were so good, I was dreaming of the day that somehow they'd come up with a machine that would take your smoke and reconvert it back into the original cigar, so you'd have it eternally... The combination of cinnamon, licorice, wood and leather of the good ones, not too strong, but definitely full of flavor and smoke just put me in orbit...I have about 15 left which are being kept for very special occasions only and searched high and wide for more of the boxes I knew were good...but alas, to no avail. I even wrote Altadis USA to ask what happened, but they never replied...A truly great smoke, now gone with the wind...

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (9) No (5)
