Montecristo Montecristo Especial No. 1 Review:

I received this cigar from a very generous brother that shares the same passion for cigars and Habanos as I, and he simply asked me to enjoy this cigar and if possible to jot down a few words about it. I have really been enjoying smaller ring Habanos due to what I feel is better flavors and complexity from them. The Especial No.1 presented a richly colored medium brown Colorado wrapper. I did not find a single flaw in it and the construction was perfect. The body of the cigar held a firmness to it and gave a slight resistance to the touch. This was a beautiful cigar from the heft, weight, look, construction, aroma, and what I was soon to experience, the flavors and complexity. The triple cap of the Laguito No.1 had a slightly bent over pig tail that looked a little worn and was probably due to shipping. It made no difference as I cut the cap it would be gone anyway. The pre-light aroma was earthy, but what really got my totally undivided attention was the draw, it was perfect, not too loose or too firm, it was the epitome of what a draw of a cigar should be. Perfect The Especial No.1 started from the very first draw with intense flavors. There was no waiting period, just vibrant, full Technicolor delicious flavor. I was greeted with flavors what tasted like old aged tobacco, not a cigar that was only about a year and a half old. Followed with a deeply rich mocha and coffee flavor that developed into a creamy toffee layer on my palate. This cigar danced around on my tasted buds and it was as graceful as a World Class Ballroom dancer could be. It developed mid-way with notes of vanilla bean which turned into a dryness that reminded me of spicy toast. The subtle sweet spiciness developed nicely into notes of gingerbread. The Especial No.1 burned straight, never needing a touch-up or correction. The ash surprised me, as it was almost totally white, which I rarely find in a Habanos. The ash held firm for 1.5 inches in between taps into the ash tray. I was really amazed with the richness of the flavor in this cigar and told myself that I needed to secure a box or two of these because they were such an exceptional well crafted, complex, flavorful cigar. This was another small ring Habanos that delivered above expectation and was over 1.5 hours of pure Habanos heaven. (Review by Tampa1257)

Review #41: FEB 12 Favorite Montecristo. Robust and rich flavors of milk chocolate, light wood, and exotic nuts. Starts mild and end on the medium-full side. Very complex, smooth, and sophisticated. - Submitted by Cubano-1 on August 29, 2017


Review #40: JUN 13 This is the only cigar that my friend enjoys. That is why I try and fine them whenever I can. He claims they are a robust and a fantastic smoke. - Submitted by susan92686 on March 29, 2016


Review #39: OCT 97 A sublime long panetela and the absolute pinnacle of Cuban tobacco flavor in a small ring gauge cigar. After eighteen years this box of Especials is simply magnificent. I Will weep when the box is gone. - Submitted by OLI62 on October 15, 2015


Review #38: --- 12 Despite being a young cigar, this one has blown me away with the intensity and complexity of flavors. Do not buy these and leave them all for me. - Submitted by ghevara on October 7, 2015


Review #37: JAN 14 JAN 14 - Very smooth out of the gates. Very light milk chocolate flavors come straight away. As a surprise with such a young stick, there was an absolute lack of harshness. Cuban twang was in the far background. Not much change in the second third, just beautifully robust, and creamy chocolate. The body kicked up to a medium full here, but was never harsh at all. During the final third, company came over as I was finishing up and I started pulling a little to hard on it. This made the cigar fairly hot and flavors turned bitter. Overall, this was a fantastic smoke. Just have to remember to smoke slowly. - Submitted by cacrat on March 9, 2015
