"Not bad, but dissapointed"
My experience with Montecristo is with the Classic which I actually enjoy, and the Yellow box which I find to be terrible. My normal smokes are from Davidoff, Arturo Fuente, Ashton and Padron so I tend to prefer finer cigars with lots of flavor.
The Monte reminded me of a stronger bodied Classic yet it lacked the sweet chocolate flavor of the Classic that has made it one of my favorites that I'm ashamed to tell people that I like.
This wasn t a bad cigar, it just didn t offer enough over the Classic to make it worth smoking.
