So those that have been in vherf hear me constantly talking about the order of Montecristo New York's I have ordered. I wasn't trying to brag, it's just I have not been excited for an order like this before. Half is being from NYC so the homer came out. The other is, a lot of puffers haven't tried this cigar yet, and how many chances do you have to review a smoke that nobody else has?
Anyways I just got back from lunch with my cousin, who accepted the shipment for me so here is some pron and review (I plan on updating when I smoke them with a review)
Size - 6X60 Box press (square)
Wrapper - Ecuadorian
Binder - Nicaraguan
Filler - Dominican
Body - Medium full
I ordered 2 boxes. They came in a "shipping" box which has the NY skyline. Simple and classy. I like the black with white coloring.
Opening the box, it follows the same theme with the NY skyline. The cigars themselves look nice too. 6x60 is a little intimidating, and reading up the reason they chose this size was because it reminded them of "the big city". What was nice is there is a ribbon going throughout the box, so when you want a cigar you just give that a little tug, instead of digging in to get one and possible cracking something (yes that has happened to me before)
Attached is a little note. Nothing special here...just a pep talk on paper about the cigar.
And of course, the actual cigar itself. Follows the clean simple look of the brown Monte band, on top of a black and white with gold trim NY edition band.
Again, once I have one I plan on writing up on it, and will update this thread accordingly
