Montecristo Yellow #3 Reviews
I've tried a few cigars, this cigar kicked my ass. I got a nick buzz like it was my first time. It didn't make me sick to my stomach like other cigars, and it didn't burn my nose and eyes. That's saying a lot, everything burns my nose. This is what I think a cigar should be. Rich and smooth (smooth like butter. I kid you not), burns evenly and slowly, easy to draw, didn't fall to pieces. The second hand smoke, from what some stranger told me, smelled "sweet. not bad at all. You have an extra one?" The after taste you have to experiance. Not the normal tounge burn, dry throat cigar bit, this left me not wanting to eat anything so I could taste it for as long as possible. Then I went and smoked another. famous-smoke.com runs a tight ship, kudos for the quick easy payment and delivery much sooner than I expected. Perfect perfect perfect. I want to be alone with my montecristo #3 now please.
these cigars are awful! If you want to smoke a Montecristo then buy the real thing and get a Cuban. I have smoked several of these FAKE Montecristos and just as the description for this cigar says, these "defy comparison to the Havanas", that is because truth be told, these are not worthy to be smoked in the same room as a true Montecristo and it is a shame that the name Montecristo is blasphemed by these dominicano cigar imposters!
Very good cigar! Easy draw and consistency. Taste is spot on with fullness. Highly recommend
The Montecristo No. 3 is a well-made corona with a firm draw, medium smoke volume. The wrapper is light brown and smooth.
This cigar is a classic and a must smoke! It burns and pulls very good and the taste is wonderful I would say a cross between vanilla and a woody flavor. I always keep these in my humidor.
The No. 3 is by far my favorite cigar. Not too long, not too short, amazing flavor and always an even burn. I'd smoke them more often if I could afford too, which is why I only buy 5 packs.
To start off with I like mild cigars. At first I was a bit apprehensive about spending $5 for a cigar with a big name. Big names do not always live up to their hype. I tried other brands, but could never find "my" cigar. On top of all this you need to make time for a big cigar, which I do not always take. My "small" cigar is Fuente's Cubanitos (consistent, good mild taste). The Montecristo #3 exceeded my expectations. It is very mild (milder than the Cubanitos), has a good draw, beautiful even grey ash and when properly carefully smoked, keeps its mild taste for the 3 quarters of its length, after which I dump it. (I think any cigar should not be smoked for more than 3 quarters of its length). My 2 regular choices: Montecristo #3 and Fuente Cubanitos. But at the end of the day it's always a matter of taste, like it is with wine.
So far the best cigar I have ever tasted. As mentioned before, a cigar is like wine: can be discussed, but not argued. It is a matter of taste after all has been said and done. This cigar is very mild, consistent to the end, easy draw, etc. It is not really cheap, but then offers very good value for money spent. If you do not mind $5 for a stick, then go for it!
