Montecristo Classic Churchill
Montecristo Classic cigars are the pinnacle of this legendary brand. Medium-bodied cigars simply don't come any better than this. The highest grade Connecticut Shade wrapper caps the finest Dominican binder and filler tobaccos, creating a veritable masterpiece. Its flawless construction produces smoke aplenty with each draw, and a supercharged version of creamy, familiar Montecristo mellowness melts into notes of cocoa and spice. More than just a fine cigar, it is the finest Montecristo.
This is the best smoke I ve enjoyed in a long time! Smooth, flavorful, not overbearing.
This is a mild but very flavorful smoke that has been a consistently excellent smoke for me for at least the last decade. I can't afford to smoke them all the time but I buy a few boxes a year and smoke them when I have friends or family over. They never disappoint. Nice flavor, beautiful aromatic smoke. The least constant thing has been the ash but its not that important to me. For me this cigar is an affordable and enjoyable luxury.
At the time of this review the rating for the Classic Churchill natural is a 97. This just seems way too high of a rating. That's next to perfect. Huh!!!??? The cigar seemed to be well constructed, cut easily, but was a little slow to light. The burn was OK, mostly burning consistantly and the draw was very nice. The ash didn't hold up very well as it dropped very early, held a while, then dropped quickly again. This didn't seem to effect the taste though as it has for other cigars I have smoked. The aroma was nice and the taste was good but not "Oh my God" good. A pleasant enough smoke although I was getting bits of tobacco in my mouth regularly. Not that big a deal. It stayed lit with no sign of quiting on me. Overall it wasn't a bad smoke, in fact it was good, but to be rated so high and sell for over $10 a stick I was expecting MUCH more. Taste being subjective, I am glad others like it so much, but for me, I'll pass for cheaper and equally good cigars.
