Hi everyone

This review will be about the « famous » Montecristo 4

Wrapper color : Colorado

Type : Petit Corona

Pre light : mostly caramel – toffee - nut. The construction of the cigar doesn’t seem great with many « veins » so it worries me a little before lighting it.

1st third : very spicy at the beginning for the flavour and it became softer after. On the retrohaling, the aromas are to my mind very earthy and woody.

2nd third : the flavour stays spicy and a little creamy. The aromas become a little more on the woody side with apparition of nuts and some pepper.

3rd third : No big change on the savour and the aromas came back on the « earthy side » with still the nutty tasty.

It was very nice and pleasant BUT the fear I had concerning the burning was unfortunately real and the burning was really bad.
The draw was also not excellent and the consumption very uneven.

What I liked :
  • Good variety of aromas
  • Very pleasant aromas
What I didn’t like :
  • the drawing
  • the consumption
Globally speaking, I had a great time with this cigar and it’s only the construction that deceived me.
Otherwise, it was really great
So general rating will be 7/10 for me (with a better construction it would have been a 9)

Thx for your reply :) I'm also a beginner but I saw that when the construction doesn't seem good, the consumption can be uneven
