    Simon, it’s a pleasure to read about the Monte 4, my every day cigar. To enhance on the irregularities of this outstanding cigar, I have gone through seven boxes this morning on my local estanco in Madrid before finding a reasonably acceptable optical approval on one of them. They were may 06 june 06 july 06 june 07 boxes from what I can recall. As I wrote in another review of the Monte 4, I wouldn’t buy a box without at least an eye review and even if you have the chance, you simply have to feel how they have been” torcidos”, because some are hard as a rock. But as you say it is a great cigar and I have been smoking it for the last thirty years. I can remember when all the boxes were simply just great.
    I cannot picture the cigar world without the vitolas marevas and coronas as they have been the base. But I suppose I will have to get used to it as they are disappearing right before my eyes.
    From the close up picture of the cigar I can see it’s a post 08 cigar from the vitola which is slightly embossed as well. I have experienced a more stable quality standard in these later year productions although I feel there has been certain changes in the taste. Maybe a little more pungent, using your terminology, and yes maybe a little bit lighter. I myself would always categorize this cigar as a medium to strong cigar but possibly they are softening it and I just haven’t felt it.
    Wonderful review. All those sensations are in a Montecristo numero 4.
    My best regards from Madrid

    Hi Manuel,

    I haven’t had the chance to try the pre 08 Monte 4 but I will try to locate one. I would love to do a vertical tasting with them
    Thanks for your insight. I am traveling to Spain next year and I have many Estancos to visit, if you have any tips or best place to buy for me, please do so!

    Buen Humo mi amigo!

    I’ve read so much about the inconsistency in Montecristos and especially the No 4 but i’ve never had a bad MC so far. The No 4 represents the best value of all Montes, probably of all cubans, 8 euros for a 45min smoke. Classic Montecristo flavors: sweet, coffee, chocolate, bit of anise, caramel. very smooth, balanced, medium body, can be smoked to the nub.

    Hi,

    An excellent smoke. Better than other Cubans of similar size, with a reliable draw. The earthy taste can be combined with an undertone of coffee. Occasionally (Jun 08) there is a heavy oaky aftertaste which can be overwhelming. An excellent Cuban choice overall.

    Best regards

    Just finished a box of these. Best cigar ever. 2 more boxes on the way and i can only hope they are as good as the last box. Honey roasted nuts with spice. Outstanding

    Have to agree. Tried a broad selection of cigars, RE’s, LE’s and the most consistent, pleasing value in cigars 2014 was my box of Montie 4. Spicy Mochachino, great burn and duration. $4 a piece- amazing.

    No.4’s I have had have been consistent/good with a great wood/coffee taste. Not a great smoke, but one that is usually enjoyable in this format.
