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.
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.
About as good as it gets. One of my two daily smokes. The other is the Montecristo Classic Churchill, which may be slightly stronger.
This is one of the finest cigars available. Smooth, even smoke, from light up to the end. Consistent taste, and burn. Treat yourself
Best Cigar ever. Not too strong of an after taste, rich in flavor and just tase good all the time.
Love this cigar. It s my new number one cigar now. The price is just outrageous for a box. Im rating this 100 all the way
Great cigar! Wonderful smooth taste!
This exact cigar, the #2 belicoso and no other size or shape Monte White, is one of my favorite cigars. Absolutley one of the best!
My wife bought me a few the cigars on the cruise. Truly an outstanding smoke in all respects. The taste is outstanding. Must get more of these.
This is the absolute best cigar Of this kind and line. The price is a bit but the cigar is the finest you will ever smoke. Go out buy yourself one or two maybe three. You will see why.. Excellent construction texture and long filler leaf. Very consistent with a nice white ash and even burn. The flavor is a earthy with a hint of nutty taste with a cream finish. This cigars flavor is consistent all the way to the nub.I take my time and smoke them very slowly.. The longer they age the better.You will not be let down.It is better to buy them by the law.
Best Cigar ever smoked, Its so smooth and relaxing. I would recommend to and new or veteran smoker
If you want something that has lots of smooth smoke, even burn and balanced taste all the way to the end, then this is the cigar for you. Been smoking these for years and they are my go-to cigar when I want something I know will taste excellent. Would highly recommend for first timers or those who are new to the cigar world. You will not be overwhelmed by this cigar s taste at all, it s about as smooth as it gets!
