The Montecristo tubos, a long cigar which I thought may take two hours to enjoy but lasted 1hr 30mins. I was surprised the cigar seemed to burn quite quickly at first but then slowed from the middle to the end. The cigar had a nice free-flowing draw from cold and throughout, it had a bitter taste through the first 2/3 but a nice aroma. Unfortunately the cigar was blown off my table in our garden by a gust of wind on an otherwise beautiful day 26°, it needed re-lighting as the fall to the floor seem to knock the ash off and take the fire with it. It needed to be re-lit again before the final third which annoyed me as I would prefer to like the cigar once at the beginning. During the smoke it seemed to be going out which dulled my enjoyment as I felt I needed to take more regular puffs than I would otherwise have wanted to. I have a natural period of time I like between draws and this issue made me rush it so I didn’t have to relight it – I won’t be having this cigar again it’s not worth the price paid I suppose I can’t enjoy every cigar I buy.

2020-12-06/ ANDREDIAS95

From my own collection.

Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens Fine Tobacco’s cigar lounge.

Information:
Wrapper: Cuba
Binder: Cuba
Filler: Cuba

Bought in a small games shop in 2019 with a humidor with some of these MAR 07 cigars laying in a box.

Size: 6.2×42, Coronas Grandes (Long Corona).

Wrapper: Milk chocolate, smooth with tiny veins.

Construction: Fairly firm and even when lightly squeezed.

Cold draw: Cedarwood.

1st third: Starts with a red pepper spice, cedarwood, walnuts and figs.

2nd third: No changes from part 1.

Burn: Burns sharp with a firm and stable whiteish ash.

Smoke: Voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a light draw.

3rd third: No changes, just well balanced flavours.

Duration: 20:45-21:45, 1h.

Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile.

Result: In my book this is an 91 point cigar.
