Review #68: APR 07 Box of 10 from Apr 07 purchased Feb 09 at a LCDH in Varadero after reading the many rave reviews here. First impression was: what a sexy vitola! Construction seemed flawless. Holding the cigar in my hand, it was a weird sensation given its large ring gauge yet short length. This was to be my first petit robusto (if it can be classified as such) having been hesitant to try this (or a similar) format before. Lighting it was an easy task but it took a few puffs for it to really come to life. As many here have mentioned, I was expecting a very similar flavor/strength profile as the MC2 but I must say that it isn't so. This petit edmundo starts slowly with a very subtle delivery of earthy and woody notes of mild to medium strength and builds up as it aproaches the second third where the flavors keep their complexity yet become more pronounced. Despite it's age of almost two years and after two resting weeks in my humidor (yes, I was impatient to try it) I noticed a slight hint of ammonia but it quickly disapeared. It took some effort to keep it lit without overheating come second half. By that time, this cigar had built up in strength and spice, getting closer to an MC2 experience but still a distance away. Come the final 1/3, having removed the band, I had to let it go out and cool down. It seemed to me as it had a lot more to offer but it was quickly becoming a handful to manage. I don't do this usually but I'm glad I did. The relight didn't ruin the experience, it even enhanced it as I was able to enjoy the long finish all the way down to less than an inch. For a short stick, it's a big surprise. The complexity and flavors are there and just as in larger formats, it develops and presents the smoker with the challenging task of identifying its many faces. However, I think it needs at least another year or two before it really matures to become a truly memorable smoke. As such I can only give it 8/10 for the moment, but a very respectable 8! - Submitted by SmokeRings on February 28, 2009

Review #67: --- 08 Just like the No 2's I just reviewed. Box of 10 and very good. - Submitted by ian on February 24, 2009

Review #66: something is wrong with the flavor. lack of flavorn, so flat, one demension. maybe needs a little aging. but so far not really impressed with this one. monte2 is absolutely far better than this - Submitted by akaiserf on February 6, 2009

Review #65: Last from a batch of 3 bought when the cigar came out, about 2 years ago... The first one just blew me away, just like the second one and while this one was very very good, it seems to me that it lacked the pure power the first 2 had and that made them so mind blowing. Good, classic Cuban tobacco caracteristics : leather, earth... I guess the extra aging just shaved that extra power off where I was still expecting it.. Still one of the greatest Cubans available on the market today... - Submitted by Smokin' Phil on January 23, 2009

Review #64: SEP 00 I was a little skeptical about this cigar at first. I felt it was going to be way over-rated but it wasn't at all. I admit still I think every Montecristo tastes the same but this is a level up from any other Monte that I have tried. It had a very earthy and that classic Habanos taste. I give it a 90% in the Robusto category. I admit still I am a Hoyo fan for life but if they don't have them in stock I would pick this up along with an H.Upmann before anything else. A great 1 1/2 hour burning cigar! - Submitted by Cuba_Raff on November 17, 2008
