The Cabinet Seleccion packs plenty of complexity into its beautiful shell.  The first third begins with some spice and earth.  A very sweet flavor then creeps into the mix.  The second third picks up a notch in terms of the spiciness but remains medium-bodied.  I also notice some flavorful notes of chocolate here.  The final third finishes off the experience with earth, nuts, and molasses.  This is a very tasty cigar that is a great treat after dinner.

I can’t say that I am surprised by my positive impressions of the Montecristo Cabinet Seleccion.  The cigar definitely delivers as promised in all departments.  It has great construction and flavor that really keeps you on your toes.  I would recommend the Cabinet Seleccion to experienced smokers seeking a full-flavored experience with medium to full-bodied strength.  The Cabinet Seleccion is pricy at around $9 per single, but it is worth its price tag for a special occasion.  You can also find the Churchill in packs of five or boxes of 22.  Pick up a box if you are willing to splurge on a great cigar.

The Montecristo Cabinet Seleccion Churchill earns a rating of four out of four stars.

Aging Room M356 Mezzo


Aging Room cigars are produced in small batches by Oliveros’ Rafael Nodal and are made with specially selected tobacco leaves.  An interesting side note on Nodal is that he’s not only an expert at making cigars, but he is also a classically trained musician.  Talk about talent!  As you can tell by the company’s name, these small batch cigars are also aged for that added touch.  Such a process has helped Aging Room to garners some pretty solid reviews for its releases, so I am expecting some good things from the M356 Mezzo that I am about to light up.  Before I do, let’s take a look at the cigar’s composition and characteristics.

The Aging Room M356 Mezzo is one of four sizes in the line and measures 6 x 54.  Other sizes include the 4 1/2 x 48 Presto, 5 x 50 Rondo, and the 6 1/2 x 60 Major.  The cigar is a Dominican puro.  In other words, all of its tobacco is Dominican. As far as the cigar’s strength is concerned, it’s listed as being full-bodied.
