Review #43: ---   I'm in complete accord with review #41 in almost every possible way, excepting that mine had a very sloppy burn that canoed this way and that, and was likely due to its youth. If frozengun420's review is any indication, it would appear that it's the only thing that age will improve in this cigar. I acquired mine from a reliable local cigar shop in Montreal that tends to purvey their cigars with at least two years past the box date, and having mine for nearly six months in the humidor; three years is the most charitable estimation for its post-production age. However, realistically; it could easily have been half that age. The typical woody, grassy Montrecristo flavor was there in a light to medium body, but it was so faint I barely knew I was smoking a cigar, especially in the opening of the first third. It basically stayed this way until somewhere in between the last half and third of the stick. But in spite of this blandness and lightness in body and profile; my palate quickly began to be clouded by an unsavory aftertaste that developed as early as the end of the first third, which significantly interfered with my ability to pickout any underlying subtleties and nuances, let alone enjoy it. When finally things seemed to be going somewhere, it gradually picked up in power and strength, but lacked what I would call refined development, and proceeded to do only just that until finally it developed that harshness that tells you the jig is up. I feel like giving this stick an absolute zero, especially since it robbed me of nearly an hour and a half I would rather have spent watching paint dry. I've had far more satisfying smokes that had almost as little development and took less than half that time; the Cohiba Siglo I (also purchased at the same time and place, and thus subject to the same conditions) comes to mind. I know it isn't fair to judge a cigar based on one experience; but at this price I can't imagine desiring a box, let alone a second round with it. Since it was my one and only experience with this cigar, in all likelihood there's room for improvement, and it could've been worse. The nicest thing I can say about this cigar is that it was certainly better than a JLP or QyHno., but I struggle to think of another, more reputable brand that was worse. Maybe I'm being too harsh, but I'm making a sincere effort to honestly and fairly evaluate this cigar. And in all honesty and fairness the Montecristo line doesn't appeal to my tastes. But all things considered; I'm giving it one-and-a-half stars (3/10), and I shan't say I shall ever try it again, perhaps even if offered in gratuity. - Submitted by Karlos Marxos on May 23, 2010


Review #42: Wow, this is a cigar that encourages me to keep spending a little more than usual on cigars. Really satisfied. It's a little longer than most cigars so perfect for a little discussion with friends on a patio or to stretch the pleasure. Perfectly rolled, good draw and tasteful earthy flavor. I Loved it. Enjoy too - Submitted by dios humo on July 17, 2009


Review #41: This cigar had been aging in my humidor for 5 years(out of the tube). I was looking forward to smoking it, but was disappointed when I did. Don't get me wrong this cigar was well built, the burn was excellent and the draw was a bit firm but created a nice thick smoke. The disappointment was with the flavor...or lack there of. The first half was light and BORING. The second half(what I smoked of it) was stronger but also lacking any real flavor. Probably over aged for this stick. - Submitted by frozengun420 on June 10, 2009


Review #40: NOV 07 Another excellent cigar from Montecristo. Very balanced and earthy smoke, with great construction and draw. - Submitted by titobueno76 on May 28, 2009


Review #39: Ένα πολύ ευχάριστο πούρο για όλες τις ώρες, με πλούσια χαρακτηριστική γεύση Montecristo. Θέλει λίγο χρόνο και περίπου δύο εκατοστά στάχτης για να ζεσταθεί, και μετά η Κούβα φωνάζει δυναμικά παρούσα, με αφθονία γεύσεων από ξύλο και δέρμα μέχρι ξηρούς καρπούς και καφέ, με εμβόλιμες spice καρφίτσες, που αφήνουν μια ισχυρή και βαθιά επίγευση. Το άρωμα, εκλεκτό και φίνο, πιο βαθύ και καβουρδισμένο από κάθε άλλο Montecristo, είναι από μόνο του μια ξεχωριστή απολαυστική εμπειρία, ένα μικρό μυρωδάτο θαύμα. Όλο το πούρο χαρακτηρίζεται από τη λέξη ποιότητα, που την αντιλαμβάνεται κανείς αμέσως μόλις ξεβιδώσει το κόκκινο καπάκι του tubo. Αυτή η ποιότητα διακρίνει κάθε του χαρακτηριστικό και το συντροφεύει σ όλη του την καπνιστική διαδρομή, μέχρι το τέλος. Ένα αρχοντικό πούρο που άνετα αφήνεις να σου κάψει τα δάχτυλα, ίσως το καλύτερο Montecristo. - Submitted by cipu on April 25, 2009
