Montecristo White Rothchilde
5 x 52 - Natural - Box of 27
Montecristo White Rothchilde cigars present a luxurious cigar reminiscent of the original, Havana Montecristos. A gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper melds with a hearty Dominican-Nicaraguan tobacco core for a rich and satisfying smoke that's been called the Montecristo of Montecristos.
I actually enjoyed this cigar a great deal. Although there was no major nicotine kick, there was a very rich flavor, from start to finish. Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and Dominican filler and Nicaraguan binder. Perfect construction. Smooth, matte wrapper. Creamy texture and earthy aroma slight chocolate and vanilla. Firm gray ash. Spicier near the end, but not at all harsh. Just a very refined and flavorful cigar.
Upon removing the label I found the blue mold spots carefully hidden. It's certainly not fatal but it surprised me for such an iconic brand. The burn was very uneven and while it was indeed a savory smoke, the construction was sub-par. In all, a surprising amount of defects for a premium stick.
They started out good but half way thru both started to taste like F & A. Unable to finish. Then I rememered this happened to me once before about a year ago. I would be interested to know if anyone else had this experience.
