Montecristo Classic Robusto: Quick Review


Montecristo Classic Robusto cigar

Again, this Montecristo Classic Robusto was included in a sampler I picked up a while back. I'm not sure what the price was but you can pick up a single from Cigar.com for $10.70.

Being this is my first Montecristo ever smoked I was pretty excited to give it a spin. The natural wrapper had only very fine veins and was rolled on tight and neat. It was a nice looking stick.

From the foot there was a sweet tea aroma and the free cold draw was flavored like spicy cedar. Once burning the initial flavors were oak, cream and pepper. The cream was soon replaced by some earth and that's were the flavor mix stayed until the final third. In the final third there was some toast and barnyard followed by bold pepper finish.

This medium bodied Montecristo Classic was a solid cigar. It had a fair flavor mix, great construction, great burn and a 50 minute smoking time.
