Montecristo White cigars boast a luxurious, hand selected Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and a blend of select Dominican and Nicaraguan long fillers, making for a rich and satisfying well-rounded smoke. Packaged in distinctive hand lacquered white boxes.
Very well made and like most I've bought here fresh and in great shape. Perfect draw right from the cut to the end. Opens a little light but develops nicely. Even burn from start to finish. Light gray ash holds on well. Medium smoke, on the creamy side but not too sweet just hints of carameltowards the finish. Great in the morning or mid day when you still need to function. Slow burner despite the size so plan on spending some time. Warm and supple down to the nub. Keep some in your box.
I?ve been smoking these for years and normally love them. This specific box however, is a real pain. So far 7 out of the 10 cigars smoked have an impossibility difficult draw. Maybe they recently hired some apprentice rollers and then failed to test these. Still a great tasting tobacco but it?s work to get any real enjoyment out of most of these.
I liked this cigar becuase it was so light. You can smoke this in the middle of the day and not worry about tasting it the rest of the evening.
I received 5 Montecristo Especial #3s the other day and just tried them. I was surprised at how mild they were. I usualy smoke Macs and these were as mild. A very pleasant cigar but no better than many others which cost much less.
