Montecristo is among Habanos significant Brand. Together with Cohiba and Romeo Y Julieta those 3 marcas cover an significant part the marketplace.
Montecristo was made at 1935, because of its 80th anniversary in 2015, Habanos made a decision to start a commemorative cigar. Since it starts to be a fad and a standard item, the Montecristo 80th Aniversario was initially seen and appreciated 2016 and accessible in extremely tiny amounts in 2017… two decades later.
About to turn into a mythical cigar I have to catch 1 pole and can share with you my own idea!
What a great looking cigar! Oily, silky, claro wrapper! Everything I’d expect from such a high excellent cigar. Its apparel is sublime and I felt guilty cutting on the pole!
The slick feeling on the finger is quite impressive. The softness of this wrapper proves that only large grade roller could take care of them without breaking them.
The pre attraction was fantastic. The cigar revealed a excellent structure. Same pressure all the way from head to toe when touching this and it was verified with the very first lit draw.
The Ash was consistent and solid. Light gray colour and maintaining the cigar hot for quite long. Through the cigar I never needed to light it or to burn off a side to correct the combustion.
The initial third starts off quite softly. On account of the very long shape, the smoke is somewhat cooler in the very start and expressing a small freshness or beneath fermented java leaves.As the smoke gradually warms the woodiness and earthiness standard of Montecristo appears discretely. Much as I would like it. The acidity is reduced nevertheless a somewhat significant bitterness is present upsetting the mix potential to fully express itself.
The next third increase in strength as well as the cigar is growing roasted coffee beans aromas and toasted almond notes.the power is moderate and the total component is monotone without a lot of sophistication or changes. Enjoyable tastes and scents and very consistent with no surprises.
The last third is with no openings, the joys of this mix. Smooth flavour and scents at exactly the very same notes of woodiness and earthiness. Low acidity and low bitterness. The cigar evolves marginally stronger but not into the normal new power of moderate to complete. Pleasant end on the palate letting us love its coffee and toffee notes melted with green vanilla odor.
We’ve been awaiting its Montecristo 80th Aniversario for so long as well as my humble opinion when you cover to get a cigar over 50 euros you’ve got high anticipation. Almost the exact same price now as a Montecristo 520 along with also the 80 Aniversario would be to me not enjoying at precisely the exact same league.
This really is a fantastic cigar but I did not locate the intricacy of a wealthy Montecristo blend. The adjustments, the kick, and the crush I wished to have with this cigar. There was nothing wrong and bad and that I expect the character of this smoke increases and grow through time.
should you find them, get them since they are most exceptionally to get improved over the last few years and they’ll become as rare as a unicorn.
