Montecristo Epic

Posted in Cigar Reviews on October 1, 2012 by Griff

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan and Dominican

Size: Robusto (5×52)

Pre Light

I’m hoping this cigar lives up to it’s name and is epic.  It has an oily milk chocolate wrapper with a barnyard aroma to it.  The cigar feels well packed and has a nice in hand feel to it.  The draw after slicing off the cap is free and has a spicy cocoa flavor.

1st Third

Opening up with a slight spice then changing into a chocolate and coffee mix.  The stick is burning relatively even with a dark gray ash.  Towards the end of the first third I’m starting to pick up a slight nut flavor as the coffee flavor seems to fade.

2nd Third

The nut and chocolate flavors are still present put towards the end of second third I start to pick up an earthy and wood flavor.  Burn and construction is still good not needing any relights or touchups.

Final Third

The cigar finished with so many flavors.  The chocolate, wood, nuts and earth were all present along with the pepper kicking back up.  Lots of smoke is floating around with a pleasant room aroma to it.


I thoroughly enjoyed this cigar. There were so many flavors and construction was flawless.  The price point on these is around the $6-7 range which isn’t too bad either.  Your hearing it from me, get out there and get a couple of these cigars ASAP.

Keep em burnin’
