More info about purchasing Montecristo White cigars...
I wanted something special. My father had just passed away, so I wanted a good, not-TOO-expensive cigar to help me think. (Unfortunately, I didn't have too much walking around time, so I enjoyed it back in Chicago...while I was, um, thinking.)
Sleek-looking cigar; looks great with the white band. Montecristos are ALL about look, and this one was no exception.
Superb ash, nice and white. VERY even burn. All around, it's one of the best-constructed cigars I've ever had.
It smells a bit like cedar, but when I inhaled it, my nostrils stung a bit. This cigar has a bit of a kick at first, but when it’s lit, it’s mild enough for smokers of any level. It has a toasty flavor and would make a wonderful breakfast cigar, paired up with a strong cup of coffee.
For $10, you can get yourself a nice cigar. If you want a Connecticut-wrapped cigar with a bit of a punch, this could be it. At $10, I wouldn’t — probably ever — make this my regular smoke. But it may be a good thing to have around for small celebrations, bar mitzvahs, Web 2.0 site launch parties, etc.
Overall Rating :
Great cigar from a great brand.
