Review #63: The Monte #5 is one of my faithfuls. This is enormous power in a compact package. The leather-like, thick wrapper makes it clear from the start that this little fella is really a brute. Although you'll find coffee and a generous touch of cocoa, in my experience the no. 5 is typified by the rich earthy flavour and aroma. It is prevalent in many Montecristo cigars, but here it takes the foreground and flows over the tongue in an almost overpowering way. This cigar is somewhat one-dimensional in that there's little evolution, but that one dimension is packed with so much great taste that you won't mind. Often this little format is left in the shadow of the famous Montecristo no. 2, or the ever popular no. 4. And while those cigars are grand when they're spot-on, my experiences with them have been variable. This perla, however, has never let me down. Make no mistake, this one is powerful. It is rich, strong and the inexperienced smoker could get quite a nicotine whallop from it. My personal preference goes out to something that delivers its flavour to the fullest. Some may find this lacking in subtlety, some may find it not varied enough, but for me this is the perfect flavour. When I smoke it, I forget about all those fancy cigars that promise so much, and realise this is where my happiness as a smoker lies. I have never smoked limited editions, or a Cohiba, but I've tried plenty of cigars. None, however, left me as fulfilled as this. Construction has always proved to be great, a perfect draw, and every time that wonderful flavour that reminds me why I really smoke cigars. If you haven't tried a no. 5 yet, forget about the big sticks for a moment. Lay aside the no. 2, put the EL's back in the humidor, and light one of these. It might not be your piece of cake, but when it is, what a cake you'll have. This will soon become my humidor stuffer of choice. - Submitted by Nekotaku on January 30, 2008

Review #62: Just smoked a Monte 5, having had fantasic experience with the Cohiba perla size. I found the start harsh, then towards the middle had about 5 minutes of delight before the end finished very harsh again. Am wondering what a couple of years would do to a box... - Submitted by jesterful1 on January 24, 2008

Review #61: I smoked one of these with a friend last night. It was from May '07. Normally I would have waited at least a few months, but I wanted to try one. Neither one of us had any draw problems and the last third of it left us wanting more. Good flavors, but I will let the rest sit in my humidor for a while. - Submitted by htown on January 23, 2008

Review #60: i aged it in a travel humidor for 4 to 5 months and it was an exellent cigar. bitter bu in a good way, and leaves you wanting more. - Submitted by 10yearoldcigarsmoker on January 10, 2008

Review #59: Excellent smoke, great favor and fine taste. Great if you like a quick smoke 30 min or so. - Submitted by yummy77552 on September 4, 2007
