This Montecristo belongs to the Seleccion Piramides Series, a limited edition of 5 Cuban piramides released in 2003. You can get yours here.

An incredibly beautiful smoke, the Montecristo Seleccion Piramide was completely different from the previously reviewed Cohiba which I also found excellent. If you have already tried a Montecristo No. 2 you probably know what to expect out of this one - creamy and smooth flavors, soothing yet entertaining. All of this with impeccable look and construction.

Montecristo Seleccion Piramide

Appearance : ★★★★★
The cigar is sublime. Beautiful lines, a smooth, silky wrapper. A masterpiece.

Montecristo Seleccion Piramide

Construction : ★★★★★
Although the Montes No. 2 are well-known for their unstable construction (one out of three seems to have burn or draw problems), the Seleccion Piramide was perfectly-constructed. Of course, I have only tried one, but since all other sticks from the sampler were also excellent construction-wise I think that some additional work is put into their confection.

Montecristo Seleccion Piramide
Flavor : ★★★★★
As for the flavors, it tastes like the best No. 2 I've ever tried in my life. Creamy, coffee, chocolate flavors all the way, some spice with a hint of sweetness, delicious walnut... Pairs up very well with a huge cup of slightly sweet coffee with milk. A true Cuban classic.

Montecristo Seleccion Piramide

Value : ★★★★☆
Obviously, this is not an everyday cigar. Save it for special occasions only.

Overall Rating : ★★★★★
Although not as majestic as the Cohiba, this Monte left a very good impression. If you like med/full-bodied creamy cigars, this is the way to go.

  1. is it much different from the No. 2?

  2. Yes, much creamier and elegant. Exquisite smoke.

  3. A friend of mine brought me back a 5 pack of these. It is a fantastic smoke, More elegant than a No. 2…more exclusive. I absolutly loved it, The best Montecristo i’ve smoked by far. The only regret I have is that I did not keep one to age it for a year or two.
