Nice V cut and purge and drew effortlessly after lighting with an even burn. Nice silver ash with black fleck; however the ash started to expand with small slits appearing in the wrapper after only 20% into the cigar. The ash was not tight and expanded like a flower before finally dropping off before it reached 25% into the cigar. Nice silver smoke and a good plume, but not happy with the wrapper! The draw was excellent and the flavour was pleasant and will definitely improve after 90 days plus in the humidor.

I bought the 5 pack Montecristo toro sampler just to try them out and I didn t expect much. The Montecristo Montecristo brown band white fleur de lis was the best I had up till this point including the Monte , but I saved the White and Platinum for last.
After over two months in the humidor I finally fired up my White tonight and was blown away. From the first light it was awesome and stayed that way until the end.
Like all Montecristo it has a perfect draw, smoke and ash - textbook in fact. However, this one has a great slightly sweet chocolatey flavor that is super smooth. The toro was a long smoke too - I dragged it out to nearly 1:45 mainly because I was savoring it and smoking it slow so it wouldn t overheat. I enjoyed the flavor so much I went extra slow.
I had a Arturo Fuente Hemingway Classic after because I m a Hemingway fan, but I was so disappointed with the Hemingway after smoking this that I m going to look for a way to trade my Hemingway s for the Montecristo White!
This beats the Monte, Epic, Classic aka Yellow Box nasty , and even the Montecristo Original.
This is a full flavor cigar but a mild cigar from a nicotine kick standpoint too.

"my new number 1"
Love this cigar. It's my new number one cigar now. The price is just outrageous for a box. I'm rating this 100 all the way

"Great Mild-Medium Cigar"
I ordered a tin of the White Montecristos, because they were on sale. I'm very very glad I did. They're not as pungent or strong, in my opinion, as the Romeo y Julieta Reserva Reals I keep in my humidor, but they don't need to be. I actually enjoy them more as a weekly smoke, because they're not as strong. Everything about the cigar is superb. The only gripe I have is the particular tin of cigars I recieved were somewhat dry and had fairly large veins. They are very attractive, the draw is great as long as you make sure it is lit well, the consistancy is very good, and the burn is great. Regarding taste it is excellent. It is very smooth, creamy, and slightly sweet. These are definately going to be my weekly cigar that's for sure, and have a permanent place in my humidor along with Romeo y Julieta and Playboy

Just got the box of 27. Excellent price compared to stores. Nice bonus, Montecristo packs a Humi-stik in each box. I'll be using it when taking a few of these Toros with me on vacation.

"CREAM of THE CROP"
This cigar is bar none one of the best cigars out there, lately a lot of cigars out there were good but not anymore, but this cigars quality continues to be a perfect 10 just try them once and you will be glad you read this review.

"A superbly smooth, complex cigar"
The Montecristo White Label is worth every penny. A smooth draw, consistent burn, and creamy, complex flavors abound. While it is on the pricey side, and not an everyday smoke, it is a great cigar to pull out on occasion, or for special occasions.

"A muust try"
The construction was flawless though the wrapper was full of stems, the burn was even reguardless, perfect draw as well..wonderful flavor that never changed, this cigar has earned its place in my humidor, next to the cuesta-rey centro finos, fuente hemingway classics, and onyx reserve mini belicosos...

In over 40 years of smoking cigars, I must say
that this is by far and away the best, in every
respect. (Why do they ask how the cigar "looks"
in ratings? Who cares, except maybe a girl?)
It has totally spoiled me for any other brand.

"Great Cigar, It should be For the Cost"
I have been smoking the Monte White's for around two years, and they are one of the tops, in smoothness, and consistancy. They should be, for the price. I have had a few cubans, that were better, and I have to say the Fuente special reserve Hemingway, beats it, but it is even more expensive.
