I've smoked about 15 of these so far and my only big complaint is that there have been a few with moldy feet. I dunno if this is due to it being t...

I loved this cigar at first, it opened with a great mix of flavors and developed well, until the last third, when it went sour. Good burn and draw...

C'mon. It's a monte. You know it's not going to let you down. The price point of some montecristo cigars can be a turn off. This one, however, was ...

I was at my local JR and one of the guys recommended a nice 5pack of Montecristo Afrique Uhuru for $18. He said they are pretty flavorful with hints of chocolate/coffee. How are these for beginners? Are they pretty strong Nicotine wise?
this smoke is very good. construction and appearance were flawless. burned somewhat unevenly at one point but no issues really. flavor started o...

Saw these for $27.50/10 cigars on Today's Joe. Been wanting to try a cigar from this line. However, both JR Cigars and Top25.com show this cigar's size at 5 X 47, whereas CI shows it at 6 X 50.
Makes you wonder why the discrepency. Anyone know what may be up with that? :confused:
The Montecristo Afrique is just such a rare cigar. It is the culmination of a joint effort between George Gershel, Altadis USA's Tobacco Expert, and our Lew Rothman. The goal was to create a new cigar of African-grown black tobaccos, and, in particular, to use a wonderful new leaf from Tanzania...
For Montecristo fans these cigars are missing the leather and cream taste but still they are great cigars, kind of a woodsy taste as you might think of what Africa tobacco woudl taste like, still great coffee smoke, as I everyday wake up to a Montecristo and coffee
I received this cigar in a JR sampler about 2 months ago and decided this stick needed to burn.
The cigar is 5" x 52 and has a very dominant heft to it. The construction was excellent, like many of the Montecristo products, with a flawless and fairly smooth medium-brown Cameroon wrapper. The...

Montecristo Afrique Jambo Jambo: 6 X 50 parejo: Dominican: Med-full:
Picked this five pack up from JR. Had less than 2 weeks in my humi. Smelled great before lighting. (still too much of a newbie to detect anything special) Lit easy and had a nice draw. Strong flavor and good buzz during...
As a big Afrique lover, I couldn't wait to try one of the Uhuru's that I received from the Devil's site. I had sampling other cigars in my humi the past few weeks and saving my Jambo's for more special occasions. I just got a 5 pack of Uhuru's and had every intention of leaving them rest for a...
As many of you may know Prior to the Great Server Crash of 2005 I had several cigar reviews, many of them in great length and description. I had somewhere around 1,000 posts then the server crashed and was reduced down to a mere 100. This was a heavy hit on not just myself, but many Gorillas. It...
