    I guess I’m a little confused. An overall rating of 3/5 and a less than stalwart flavor profile doesn’t seem to warrant an $11 price point for a cigar. Especially when there are much better vitoles available for significantly less money. I used to be a Monte smoker, but much as Partagas , their quality has slipped over the years and other brands have passed them by. I do, however, still enjoy some of their cubanos.

    Yeah I’d say I’m a little confused also.In my humble opinion the majority of Cuban Montes are overproduced,overpriced and overrated,with a small percentage of exceptions.They’re not “all that” by any stretch! So setting this one up as being “about as close as you can come to the “real thing”….”doesn’t draw me in at all.And then the review,well it’s “meh” at best.I don’t think they’ll be queueing up for this one,somehow.

    Resisting these until additional reviews filter in. I’m a bit curious re: “….same taste foot-to-head…” comment. But I will probably give them a chance. I’ll let you know how it turns out at this end.

    “A lot of people think Macanudo when they think Dominican”

    You need to get out a bit more. Nowadays we think Opus X, Aging Room, Kristoff, EP Carillo, Arturo Fuente Anejo, Avo, Davidoff, Diamond Crown, La Aurora, La Floe Dominicana, Crowned heads, PDR, Viva Republica, Matilede, the list just goes on.

    “If you want to see what all the commotion is about regarding fine Cuban cigars, this smoke is just about as close as you can come to the “real thing” ”

    I hope you mean visually. No peaty-tasting Cubans spring to mind.

    But it is a nice looking cigar.

    There’s the New York Edition
    The Chicago Edition
    The Las Vegas Edition
    The Texas Edition.

    I’ve tried all of them and, the best by far was the Texas Edition. I bought the box of 10 and enjoyed every stick immensely.

    I also enjoy the Montecristo Epic Line. I had both the robusto size and the Toro. Both smoked very well.
