    Hi, I'm a musician who always indulges in a cigar or two whenever I have a rehearsal or gig. It's just a part of my performance ritual, I guess. I have a thing for maduro Montesinos (it's the complexity of flavor in a relatively mild smoke), but even their "Diplomatico" size is too long a...

    This was one of the first cigars I had even smoked. The first being a RyJ Love Story, which I really liked. I know you can't compare the two but ... Read the full review here: Montesino Robusto Cigar Review - meh

    Found this from a fiver I bought several years ago. A little hard, probably not enough humidity in my third stirng humidor. However, a fine taste a... Read the full review here: Montesino Gran Corona Cigar Review - Like Found Money!

    I bought a five pack of the Diplimatico back in the early Spring and I just finished them off. The first three I smoked had very tight draws, so t... Read the full review here: Montesino Diplomatico Cigar Review - 2 outta 5

    Montesino #1 (6 7/8 x 43) maduro I received a Montesino in a Sampler Pack from Tampa Sweethearts and wanted to get some feedback as to what you thought of this cigar? There haven't been many that I just didn't like, whether draw or taste, but this one I actually put down. Is it just that I...

    I was curious what other's opinions are on this showdown? I have had both. I like both. They are both made under the same manufacturer. What I find, though, is that I can enjoy the Montesino as much as the Fuente, and it costs less. In my mind, that's usually better. Do people find that...

    Real good smoke for the money. Great draw, good flavor, and burn nicely. You can pick the up for just over 2 bucks.

  10. Cigar Questions
    I have been enjoying the Montesino maduros in the robusto size. I have noticed that they sell these cigars in a bundle called the Napoleon Grande 7.5x46. My question is are these the same cigars that I have been smoking (except the size diff). It looks like they have a different band also.

    My search did not find any recent reviews of this stick, so I thought it needed one. Montesino Wrapper-Maduro Nicaraguan binders and Dominican long-filler leaves Size-robusto 5x50 Price-less then $3 a stick:tu I'm going to start off by telling you if you are looking for the prettiest stick...

    Has anyone had any experience with Montesino cigars? I particularly want to know if they have some of the typical Fuente flavor characteristics.
  13. General Cigar Discussion
    Has anyone smokes any of the bundled Montesino Napoleons? I see these at a fairly decent price from time to time but have been hesitant to pull the trigger on a bundle without hearing a bit more about them. Can anyone describer the flavor profile? Thanks, Steve D

    Gotta crank this one out fast before I head out this's holiday party season in Tejas... I don't have anything elaborate to say about these sticks, save that I just like them a lot. They're possibly the most consistently UGLY stick I've ever come across; it's not uncommon for the...

    MONTESINO DIPLOMATICO Size: 5.50 x 42 Wrapper: Connecticut Shade or Broadleaf, Filler: DR Price: $3.15 Montesino was the flagship line of the Arturo Fuente family after they were driven from Cuba. I picked up a single at a local B&M just to try it out, and because I was out of smaller cigars...
  16. Cigar Questions
    I picked a couple of Montesino Robustos up a few weeks ago and let them sit. The wrappers were not the typical color of most Fuentes and I read that they also come in Sun Grown. My question is how do I find out if they are Sun Grown or Natural since I may never be back at that particular B&M...

    Well, here we go; my first review. I've been trying to do a lot of reading and keep my piehole mostly shut, but this was a really good experience I wanted to share. I had a pretty crappy weekend - had to work on my birthday (which I legitimately think should be against the law) and ended up...

    My first impulse tonight was to go after one of those beautiful little rascals Alphuez55 bombed me with today... ESPECIALLY that Dark Knight!!! But sensibility got the best of me (for a change)... Alp's gifts went into a marked box in the coolerdor (after marking the cellos in his name), and...

    I confess to gushing over the flavor of a Montesino Diplimatico last week, though I do not apologize. Though the 5.5 X 42 size was a bit smaller than I prefer, the maduro wrapper was tasty, the chocolate-coffee flavor was very satisfying, the burn was great, and it left me feeling as though I...
