Well here is another nice cigar. I acquired these thru a box-split, that was purchased thru JR's madness special, the price was $98.00 which is half the normal price. "If you are not familiar with this cigar, I will give some background info. From Tabacalera Fuente and the Newman family comes the Montesino Super Belicoso Sungrown. This is a big, brassy belicoso wrapped in a dark, sungrown Ecuadorian Sumatran leaf and densely packed with Piloto Cubano fillers" This cigar is handmade in the Dominican Republic. When I first looked at this cigar I noticed how well constructed the feel was, nice and firm with a slight softness upon palpation, outer leaf was a beautiful mahogany color with a nice leathery sheen look. The aroma was earthy and pleasant. I used a guillotine to snip the end, and the draw was very easy. Upon toasting it, the cigar emitted a pleasent cedar aroma with light gray smoke. The first draw had essence of pepper and cocoa to it, and the taste was light with no bitterness. I had this cigar with a glass of lemon water. This cigar maintained it's flavor of pepper throughout the smoke, and I detected some subtle flavors of cocoa and cedar, and a slight earthy taste, all where pleasant. Overall the cigar was of medium flavor, with the flavors that I did taste seemed to be subdued, I will credit this to the fact that the cigar was very young and still in need of maturing, but for a young cigar it was complex, I will not say that this is in the same class of the VSG, but I will go out on a limb and say it is right up there, if not better than the 858 Sungrown. If you like sungrown cigars, you will not be disapointed with this one.
