Taste Test

The montecristo open eagle

After visiting Havana and booking into the same hotel where Ernest Hemingway stayed it was inevitable I would fall in love with cigars, oh and Cuba. After finishing the box of 25 montecristo no 3's recently I decided to explore the fine selection of cigars supplied by c.gars ltd. although I enjoyed the No3's I found myself wanting to try something milder. On a hot summers day I headed for Robert Graham in Cambridge. The guy in the shop was so helpful and after a un-rushed tour of the cigars he recommended the montecristo open eagle cigar. Now for the review. Without sounding over dramatic, I often find some foods,drinks and smells take me on a trip down memory lane. After lighting the cigar I was subconsciously transported back to Cuba. The 7 year old Havana club only enhanced my senses. What a fantastic smoke. I was so nervous that my first experience after the montecristo No3 would be an anti climax. I spent weeks reading reviews. Definitely an experience of coffee, but not just any coffee. I remember waking up in Havana after a hurricane passed through. The first thing I smelt was this amazing aroma of coffee. As I walked out of the hotel I decided to follow my nose. It took me into a small back street. There I saw an old lady at her table, rolling cigars. She puffed away on a cigar whilst rolling. I could just see the stove in the background where the coffee pot was boiling away. I didn't speak Spanish and she didn't speak English but she knew I was drawn by the smell of the coffee. She offered me a cup which I humbly accepted. I decided to light one of my montecristos and sat there for over an hour. Smoking the open eagle took me back to that day. I am so grateful to the guy at Robert graham for recommending this amazing cigar. Thank you.

Well, just one week more in the Humi has transformed these big boys. Much firmer, and very much better. Rich, chocolatey, with an aroma of Jenny Agutters nearly new shoes.

Picked up a nearly full box of these in Spain from a friend who found them too mild. After 5 weeks in the humi, tried the first one. The construction is good, though loosely packed. I suggest the price reflects this low density. There is nothing offensive in this cigar and if that sounds like faint praise, it is. Its ok, but lacks interest. I would choose an Edmundo over this, every time.

I had this cigar on new years eve and it is without doubt the best cigar i have smoked to date. Perfect draw and burn and flavours too. It also goes amazingly with a glass or 3 of highland park whisky.

I enjoyed this. It was quite an intense flavour and looked magnificent. I did have burn issues though and at times it was difficult to get a good draw, but overall not bad.
