Montecristo Classic Robusto cigars present an already-classic smoke in a classic shape. These Dominican beauties boast stunning construction and draw, and unrivaled flavor and aroma. Its 52 ring is slightly larger than the average Robusto, but you'll appreciate the extra heft once you're done.
I don t see why this one has so many bad reviews, it was a great smooth creamy smoke start to finish, burned nicely and an easy draw
For the most expensive cigar in my sampler, it tasted alot like the cheap cigars I tried. I would not buy again.
I bought a 5-pack of the Montescristo Robustos. So far, I ve smoked 3. Two of the three have been awful - bad draw, extremely bitter, no flavor to speak of. As far as I can tell, these cigars are living on their reputation and quality is not even considered any longer. The third was a mediocre smoke; no comparison to any number of lesser reputation cigars that are cheaper and better Carillo; Fratello; even R&J . I have no interest in investing any more hard-earned dollars in trying to see if I simply got a bad batch; considering their price and reputation, one shouldn t have to give them chance after chance.
The first one, I thought this must be an accidental miss labeling. No way in hell could a Monte Classic be this bad. Then, when the second and third where just as bad, I really did think someone at Montecristo, or Famous, was puttingClassic bands on second hand sticks. Realizing I ve NEVER had anything but a good buying experience fromFamous for many years now, I quickly abandoned my conspiracy theory. I am bewildered to say the least. These cigarssmell and burn like second hand short filler cheap crap sticks. The White #2 has always been one of my top 3 favorites.The Classic when it had just one brown band, not a second yellow band was also one of my top 5 favs. BECAUSEthis stick is so bad, I will never look at Monte the same again. AVOID AVOID AVOID!! Don t even buy samplers withthis crap stick in them....or if you do, give this one away to someone you don t like!!! Montecristo should be embarrassedand pull these from the shelves immediately.
