Montecristo #1

This Montecristo #1 is a 6.3 inch ring 40 cigar with an oily wrapper with small veins, a light aroma and a good construction.

Smooth soft leather with a bit of pepper is what I taste. Not much of a development in the flavor department at the start. The pepper disappears soon and the leather becomes a bit bitter. After finishing about half the cigar the leather suddenly grows in strength and a nutty flavor supports the leather. The cigar slowly grows in strength and I could even taste a grassy flavor. The finale is wood, toast and nutty.

The smoke is fine, the draw is good and the ash is dark. No complaints about the burn.

Would I buy this cigar again? No, I prefer other sizes.
