This is by far my favorite cigar. I'd get a box of 50 if I could afford it! I'm no expert on cigars but I have tried a few and I have not had a better tasting cigar than this one, I will keep coming back to it.

The world famous Montecristo Petit Tubos. At first sight the tube is more impressive than the actual cigar. Probably due to it's brown and rather drab looking cigar label.
Looking at the cigar I did not feel there was anything to write home about, other than its typical grassy/barn yard smell and it being a well made cigar.
Once lit, the story changes.
On first impression I am hit with pepper and old leather, with very little trace of the initial barn yard smell I noticed prior to lighting.
The draw seems to be very good but the burn is a little thick and somewhat temperamental to start.
Half way through everything starts to even out, becoming a little more complex and full bodied while taking on a very obvious nutty flavour, yet still retaining the leathery notes which has now amalgamated with a very subtle peppermint freshness on the tip of the tongue.
All in all a very nice cigar, and much more complex than you would initially expect, reminding me of Hennnessy XO.

Quite smooth early doors progressing into a nice spicy kick at the end. Not a bad little smoke at all!

I am new to the cigar world and so I am probably not the best person to listen too on whether or not you should buy this cigar. I enjoyed this cigar, very smooth and pleasant to smoke. All I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I bought a sampler pack and I will be very happy if all the rest of the cigars are similar or better than this. I am already looking for a 'nice' cigar to purchase for my Father's Day gift.

I found this cigar to be very well constructed, easy to light and experienced no issues keeping it alight. This coupled with an excellent draw and plenty of smoke made it a trouble free experience, but not one I'd personally go for again. This cigar came with a reputation of consistency, and in this instance I found that to be a bit of a handicap, finding the smoke somewhat uninspiring, with little excitement, but then I suppose that does come hand in hand with consistency, however! All in all, a good, well built smoke, but not the most exciting.
