Generally a nice cigar, above average smoke that lasted about an hour. Draw on the one I had was a bit tight, however it was well constructed and burned evenly.
Cigar started off mild, then got spicy and peppery at the mid point. Last third the spice become muted, and some sweetness came through with honey and floral notes developing on the palate.
I would have given this 3 & half stars, but rounded it down to 3, because I'm not keen on the spice/peppery notes.

The Monte number 4 is one of the easiest cigars to smoke. I keep mine slightly more humid than other cigars as I find this improves them for my taste. Any one wanting to try a Cuban for the first time should go for a Monte number 4, they are great and not overly complex or too long.

Being new to smoking cubans i can now see what all the postive noise about this cigar is about. Had my first one a couple of days ago and i have only good things to say. Excellent construction, good consistent eay draw and burn with generous mouthfuls of smoke. Started creamy with chocolate, then progressed to nuttiness for the remainder of the smoke. Overall an excllent intro to the world of cubans, shall always try and keep some in the humi!
