I have been a big fan of the San Cristobal Elegencia Carona for a morning/midday smoke but in the last 18 months or so the quality hasn t been quite as good as before. In exploring for alternatives I came upon the Montesino Robusto. Though not identical the Mentesin hits many of the same notes with a very similar body. Definitey the best I ve had in its price range and as good or better than more expensive cigars. Sweet spice, vanilla, and butter. Excellent construction and burn. Better performance than the last couple of boxes of Fuentes I ve had Ironically given that they come from the same people. I will be buying again!
Bought a box of the Montesino Robustos for my son’s wedding in Minneapolis this past weekend. A pleasant, creamy, mellow cigar from A. Fuente. Beautifully rolled, great taste, delicious aroma, even burn, easy draw. Everyone at the big party enjoyed these sticks, even the bride’s mother!
Best Buy’s and smokes for the money
At under $4/ea. a great cigar. You could spend more for less, and I have. I have empty Montesino boxes stacking up. It s always the least expensive cigar in my humidor for a reason.
I first bought a Montesino at a cigar store and liked it right away. It is very smooth, and the right size. They always burn evenly and are very consistent in taste and construction.
Good looking smoke. Great presentation! Great taste, and good draw. Very good construction and taste. Highly recommended
What a beautiful robusto. Perfect draw, great aroma, wonderful taste throughout the cigar. You can definitely tell it s an A. Fuente made cigar.
I never run out of these and keep a couple with me most always. I love em and you can t beat the price!
Very good value. Good smooth draw, great flavor. Slightly sweet.
Burns well and has fantastic consistency. Smooth draw and appearance. Taste is great and good construction.
