Montecristo minis are an excellent cigar for those with little time on their hands to enjoy a puff of cuban magic. Well balanced with a medium flavour - 3 1/4" - 21 ring gauge 100% Cuban tobacco, machine rolled in Cuba.
These cigarillos by Montecristo were quite enjoyable; however, they aren't close to the quality of a full gauge in terms of flavour profile. The taste is somewhat similar to a generic Hamlet cigarillo you would find in a corner shop (sad, but true). Not that Hamelets are the worst kind, but for those who want a Motecristo experience, these cigarillos don't quite compare to bigger cigars. Also, the craft of these cigarillos are beautiful in design: slim with a 8-12 minute smoke.

This is an excellent mini sized cigar and is certainly the best way to enjoy an authentic Habano when time is limited. It is certainly not in the same league flavour wise as the full guage Montecristos but it is not trying to be.
Despite its size, the flavour is still sweet rich and complex and for the price it is well deserving of five stars. The trick in smoking a Montecristo club, mini or purito is to draw light and slow so as not to overheat the tobacco.
A Montecristo mini, club or purito are all great cigars to enjoy with a Columbian Arabica in the morning.
