This cigar is a proper monster. Monte Christie have a reputation for being a bit commoditised, but is that fair? The No. 2 is a sensation frankly and some of the newer ranges are delicious. They are also very unCuban in their reliability. This Anniversary cigar is a triumph - rich and deep, toasty and with a proper kick it gets better and better AND it has a perfect draw. I was put onto it by a hedge fund billionaire I met and whilst I find it hard to emulate these titans - in this case I was able to join the party. The smoke is a bit how I imagine one of those NLAW tank busters - about the same size and with a hell of a punch. But smooth as silk and easy to operate. The epitome of modern cigar warfare. Sadly you now need to own a hedge fund to be able to afford the, - but if you see a single stick in a good lounge pay up since your view of Montecristo will change for the better and your next hour and a half will be spent in blissful puffing.
