Review Notes: The Montecristo Media Noche was a work of art from start to finish. As an inexperienced cigar smoker, the Media Noche has set the bar for which excellence in cigars is to be measured. The 7.0" x 58 Churchill is a power broker's stick that commands respect. It was quite comfortable to hold. This cigar was firm and it was immediately apparent that it could take a bit of roughhousing. The Media Noche had quite a pleasant almost earthy aroma prelight. The craftsmanship was immaculate. The Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapper was tightly wrapped and didn't flake on the cut. The ash was solid and tidy and held on for 2 1/2 inches or better. The burn was a little uneven at first but self corrected about 1/3 of the way down. Draw was smooth and pleasant and offered a mild but sweet, rich and tasty smoke that was easy on the palate. The first 1/3 was characterized by a delectable blend of earthy and leathery notes that was quite good. Some spice, not overpowering, popped up here and there after the first 1/2. This cigar was a pleasure to smoke from start to finish as I did not want to put it down. At $15.00, this cigar seemed pricey but I would have easily paid $20.00. I certainly want to keep a few of these in my humidor but at $230.00 a box that seems like a long shot, maybe after my tax return. Overall a fantastic cigar, definitely my favorite thus far as I am excited about trying out others in the Montecristo arsenal. Top notch, world class cigar.
