Montecristo White No. 3 cigars present a luxurious cigar reminiscent of the original Havana Montecristos. A gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper melds with a hearty Dominican-Nicaraguan tobacco core for a rich and satisfying smoke that's been called the Montecristo of Montecristos.
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 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.
