Review #13: Smoked 3 so far in my habano career over several years, and somehow mixed feelings. Mixed in a way that tastewise, flavour, aroma, this comes close to the best I have ever smoked. Only, my first experience a couple of years ago, was very painful and hard to overcome. Longed for it the whole glamour night, and when the moment arrived, it turned out to be absolutely plugged. No smoke to be seen, correction, my whole craving went up in smoke, and that was the only smoke I saw that night. That particular cigar itself still is the main reason why I don't take a smoke outside my house (and standby 'reanimation' tools) when I go out for a dinner or drink without trying to be almost sure the draw will not be dead-difficult. On the other hand, when they draw well, these are fenominal cigars, my last 2 experiences were solid proof for that. Absolute elegance and top performance, best of the brand!!! Somehow I don't have a box of these, but one of these months I think I'll take the plunge, because every day when I think cigars, I 'm thinking, man, why don't you have a box of these?!?! - Submitted by Yapi on February 1, 2008

Review #12: From an 04 box. This has to be one of the most flavorful Montys I have had in a long time. Glad I put these away a few years ago. Very rich in leather and cocoa flavors. - Submitted by habanohal on January 25, 2008

Review #11: This was a '97 and although Monte's have been somewhat lacklustre over the years; this cigar reminded me quickly just how good a Montecristo can be! Perfect burn, perfect draw, superb aroma and even the aftertaste just lingered pleasantly for a long time. I wish I had more of these! - Submitted by Shooter on November 2, 2007

Review #10: Though this is a very difficult format to roll, the construction of this Montecristo seems flawless, perfect. The colorado wrapper is silky and fine, well stretched. The appearance is very elegant, refined, with the pigtail head giving it a funny twist. When unlit it doesn't have a deep smell, just a light mature tobacco perfume. The beginning is light in strenght but flavourful, with woody and leathery notes prevailing. After a while I detected a sweet spicy flavour, reminding of vanilla that will jump in and out throughout all the smoke. Towards the middle the flavour becomes rounder with leathery and undergrowth notes taking the central places, while the strenght increases step by step, without sharp leaps. The last third brings out lots of character from the stick: the spices become more intense, especially pepper piquancy and earthy tones. The strenght now is definitely high. The final is long and overbearingly flavourful, with all the spices resounding together. This is a thoroughbred, unmistakably Montecristo although much more complex than the classic nr.1, 2..etc. The cigar burns straight and even, absolutely no draw problems. - Submitted by sasha on October 27, 2007

Review #9: I smoked one of these superb cigars from a 1990 box. Construction was perfect giving an easy draw with just the right amount of resistance and a razor sharp burn. The flavour was excellent - predominantly cedarwood with dustings of gingerbread, pine and cinnamon enveloped in musk. The heavily musty aroma of well aged cuban tobacco was divine. There was a nice touch of spicyness to the smoke which built slightly through the second half where notes of liquorice and leather surfaced. This vintage example was a clear 10/10. Without the great aging these cigars are still very good. 9/10 but a clear 10 if you either mature them yourself or find aged examples. Happy smoking :-) - Submitted by A. Dyer on January 31, 2007
