Review Notes: This was the second of two of these sticks I received about a year ago. The age was good for this cigar because I enjoyed it quite a bit more than the last one, (4-1-07). That being said, I still did not find this to be a noteworthy cigar. It had a nice leathery flavor at times, but was largely masked by a slight roughness. It was not particularly harsh, but its brawny overtones did not mesh well with its core notes. It could have been a lot better - maybe more age would have done the trick. In short, if you're in the market for a demi-corona, these will do, but reach for a Bolivar Coronas Junior or a SCDH El Principe first.

"Not Impressed"

Review Notes: This cigar was not bad, but it was far cry from its larger siblings. The flavor was leathery with some earth and nuts, but it didn't all come together like it does in other larger Montes. To its credit, the draw was perfect and it burned for much longer than I expected, (probably around 40 minutes), but the apparence was quite bad. It looked like a kindergardner put the wrapper on. Now I know what you're thinking - this cigar must have been a fake, but it was purchased from a duty-free store at the Frankfurt airport, so I assume it to be legit. I have one more, so I'll post a follow-up after letting it age.
