A beautiful spicy cigar
The Montecristo no. 5 is an immaculately rolled little cigar. It has a fairly tight draw and smokes for 30-40 minutes. It starts with a blend of strong spices which gradually become lighter as you smoke. There is a faint hint of chocolate aftertaste that really brings the spices together. Don't let the size fool you, this cigar has a full-bodied flavour and will certainly satisfy even the most experienced smoker.
Note: Best enjoyed while listening to the Beuna Vista Social Club album to add an authentic Cuban atmosphere to this fantastic Cuban cigar.
Delivers in a small rolled package
This petit corona only lacks in size and nothing else. The flavors started off with a wholesome earthy body with some hints of spiciness. The burn was very even and the draw was easy, making this a very pleasurable smoke. The strength picks up gradually during the smoke trading the earthiness with some ceder and the spiciness is joined with some subtle hints of vanilla. The flavors captivate you so that you find only the stub between your fingers as the hour has drifted by, accompanied by some impressively full smoke.
You find yourself wanting more but very satisfied when you finally put it down. Its size may be small but it still manages to make an impression.
