I judge all cigars against Havana monte #2's.......That's the starting point. These do not compare, for about the same price.

"Extremely even burn, Very Mild, Perfect white ash"
The cigar was very well built, a bit unusually narrow tip however. It burned with the best of em. The cigar produced the whitest ash I have seen yet, and was very mild. I would have liked to tasted more flavors. Construction 8, Burn 10 Flavor 6. Overall 7.5

The Dominican Montecristos are as good or better than the Cuban versions, in my opinion. I believe the #2 Torpedo is the best of the lot.

"Legend lives up to its rep"
I've heard the legend. It's seldom something lives up to its hype. This one does. I found the draw great, nice ash, flavor and aroma mild like I like it. Smooth, with no bite in the whole stick. In this case you get what you pay for.

"Not worth the entry price"
Overpriced but well made medium body cigar. Not as good as a (cheaper) Number 1 and not nearly as good as the Double Corona.

"Looks can be deceiving"
A shame to the name. Looks like a good cigar but
1) with this name it should be stonger
2) it should at least have taste
recieved on the first tee and by the second tee had changed to a Fuente Sun Shade
