    I know nothing can replace the Monte 2 when they're on the mark. Being that the last box was a disaster i'm looking for a decent replacement.Besides the H.Upmann 2 or VR Unicos,does anyone have other suggestions. Having a little trouble making a choice so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Had one of these on my honeymoon, and recently lit another one up. Burn wasn't great and neither was the plume, but the flavors of this vitola are... Read the full review here: Montecristo (Cuba) Petit Edmundo Cigar Review - A great habano Monte

    Construction and draw from this stick was good. Plume was nice and thick, but with all that smoke, you would think taste would be prominent.......... Read the full review here: Montecristo (D.R.) No. 2 Cigar Review - A typical Monte, mild and nothing special

    I have been aging Monte No.2 & Cohiba Siglo IV for 1yr now after I bought it from a known source, not sure how long they had it for and what box was it from, I am sure it was not laying arround in store for more than month or two.. I know these sticks should have 3-5 years of rest, should I try...

    This afternoon I had a Monte #4. The cigar was kept in my 61-62 rh humidor, the head clipped with my xikar, and lit with a torch. The pre-light draw was a touch on the tight side, but workable so I didn't cut lower. The flavor was coffee and earth. After toasting the foot, the first few puffs...

    Yes it is just a baby but it is my first cc in years and am compelled to review it. I've been storing it at 68 rh, a bit high but haven't had the chance to adjust it. It has a nice solid feel rolling it in my fingers and the wrapper has a velvety texture to it. I paired it with B&B. I snip the...

    I have some of these coming my way. Anyone have thoughts or comments on how these are smoking at this point??

    So I lit up my first Montecristo yesterday, it was an 06 Monte 5. I was really looking forward to smoking my first Monte. Unfortunately it was not a great smoking experience. The draw was so hard i could barely get any smoke out at all, let alone try and and get any flavor out of it. I tried...

    Im halfway through a Monte 2 and it is one of the good ones!! :nod: Perfectly rolled, nice sheen to the light tan wrapper, ash coming off in nice tight logs.. The smoke is classic Monte, sweet, earthy, creamy coffee flavor. When a Monte 2 has its game face on.. You know you are smoking a...

    Brothers, Monte 4 has been well-reviewed; so, I'll indulge in a bit of talk about the settings for smoking > than smoking the cigar itself. Let me know whether that proves to be boring. My first (a couple of years back): I telephoned Hillman Lentz, the owner of Club Perdomo in...

    Well it seems after helping out Warren with some pipe tobacco vs. customs trade he decide to fill my wishlist. I cant wait to smoke one but I know they need some rest traveling so far. Thanks Warren for destroying the brand new PO box and I am sure the postmans limp will go away in time. now...

    Hello all, I'm reading a lot about the need to be sure cc's are properly aged. I was gifted three Monte #1s that I have no idea how old they are, but likely not very. How long would you hold these before trying them? 1 year or 5? Yes, I understand that there may be at least 6 answers to...

    Any thoughts on these? I haven't had one yet but it's on my "to try" list. Any recent reviews? How much rest do these usually need? I'm going to add it to my next order (assuming my most recent order arrives) with a box of Trini Coloniales. Thanks in advance!

    out of my recently acquired stash and I must say I Love This Cigar! Smooth mild solid smoke just as I remember them. Just the right size for a time when you don't have a 2 hour window to devote. Having mostly only experience with the Montes and Cohibas on the dark side, what other...
