MonteCristo Cigar

monte cristo new york edition cigar
This evening I treated myself to a MonteCristo New York Edition.  It is a box press that measures around 6 inches with a "48 to 50" ring gauge. The wrapper is light brown in color and is a smoothed full-bodied cigar with a nice draw and pull, but  I had to re-light the cigar because it burned uneven.* The cigar has some spice, pepper, and wood flavors.Cuban cigars are illegal in the US therefore the only Montecristo cigars you will get will be the one made in the Dominic Republic by Altadis SA. The Cuban brand is produced by Habanos SA. * There could be a lot of reasons for an uneven burn like humidification issues, damaged  during deliver, moisture, lighting, speed smoking, etc. I smoked 2 more cigars after this and gave it another review.
