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.)

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
Sleek-looking cigar; looks great with the white band. Montecristos are ALL about look, and this one was no exception.

Montecristo White Rothchilde

Construction : Rating: ★★★★★
Superb ash, nice and white. VERY even burn. All around, it’s one of the best-constructed cigars I’ve ever had.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★½
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.

Value : Rating: ★★★½☆
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 : Overall Rating: ★★★★½
Great cigar from a great brand.

  1. I never have been a big fan of the White Label. It has a salty taste that just doesn’t agree with me.

  2. this was my first premium smoke, a great choice I would reccomend to anyone

    This cigar is the benchmark of construction! Very beautiful Connecticut Shade grown wrapper, which I’m sure adds to the price, and perfect burn…every time! Now if only they tasted like Illusione ~2~ this would be a perfect cigar!!!

  4. Great review! I’m a big fan of the Montecristo White and would recommend that everyone give it a try!

  5. Beautiful perfection … at a price! I can’t afford $10+ per stick too often (not at all, in fact nowadays), but if I could, these make impressive celebration cigars!

    I agree with these reviews – gorgeous wrapper. I just went to a wedding and the bride’s family offered Montecristo Whites while Groom’s family offered Montecristo Classic. What a great idea. I saw at they give you a set of coffee mugs when you buy one box Montecristo Whites – not a bad deal.

    Agreed my friend. This cigar is a construction masterpiece. As far as the flavor I enjoyed it much but I’ve heard so many great things about the white I guess I was expecting more.

  8. The Montecristo White is my favorite cigar. I’m fortunate to have a humidor full of great smokes, including many of the CA top rated sticks from recent years. The Cuban Montecristo No. 2 is very deserving of it’s current Cigar of the Year designation and I agree it’s a fantastic cigar. Each persons preferences are individual and the Monte White is what I reach for most often!

  9. Had 5-pack sampler of Toro size from AC. As with Rothschild this is a beautiful looking/constructed cigar. Despite a wee bit of pepper flavour, mine have been a little on the bland side. This comes from a mild/medium fan. But taste is an individual thing which makes world of cigars so fascinating.

  10. Having now tried a couple of the Rothschild’s now, I’d agree with the reviewer. Decent smoke & beautiful looking cigar, but maybe a touch pricey.
