Review Notes: OK, I've tried several different Montecristos now, hoping that one of them would finally be worth the price (even the $6 average sampler pack price). I have been disappointed in almost ALL of them, as they are too mild and flat for the price, and I'm a wimp about spices! It's a well-constructed cigar, good even burn, good draw, but...ho hum. Now to the Serie V robusto. I actually liked this a lot more than any of the other ones I've tried, and look forward to smoking the other two I have after some aging in the humidor. Started out with hints of coffee and pepper, then went to a leathery taste, which remained throughout. I didn't actually mind that the flavor leveled out since leathery cigars tend to sort of level out anyway. A very strong ammonia taste came quickly before the cigar got close to the band, so you aren't going to be able to smoke this one down to the nub. Still pricey for this cigar, why does this company continue to overprice their cigars!? All said and done, I would get one of these in the future, but I won't regularly stock this cigar because of the price.
