Among 1935 line I like the Dumas the most started with a grape taste the storing was great for the stick it’s a medium body
great smell and a grape notes continued all the way

I had this almost 2 weeks ago at a Smoke Room meet-up and I really enjoyed it. I picked up a lot of cedar and chocolate notes. It was milder in taste than I was expecting but that didn't matter as it still tasted great. I've read that the Maltes and Leyenda vitolas are even better than the Dumas, but they seem to be scarce. I'm glad I have one more in my keep to age longer.

157. Montecristo Linea 1935 Dumas

2018-07-17/ ANDREDIAS95

Store bought at Mellgrens Fine Tobacco.

Location: This review was made indoors in a cigar lounge.

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, silky smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Firm but still a giving feel.

Cold draw: Hay and oak wood.

1st third: Starts of with a dark roasted coffee, clear dry oak wood notes and a hint of cinnamon in the background.

2nd third: Smoothens out with a creamy 60% milk chocolate and there is still a oak wood note.

The burn: Burns slowly and fairly sharp with a white-ish ash.

Smoke: Voluminous white smoke with a medium heat feel on the tounge.

3rd third: Keeps the flavours from part 2 with the re-entry of the spicy cinnamon from part one re-appearing.

Conclusion: An enjoyable cigar, sadly not as good as it’s bigger brothers Maltes and Leyenda. Medium strength with a medium bodied taste. This cigar fits better as an after lunch or early afternoon smoke.

Result: In my book this is an 89 point cigar.
