Hi everyone

This week’s review will be about the « Small Edmundo » Montecristo which wasn’t the best experience I’ve had with a cigar !…

Wrapper : Colorado

Type : Small Edmundo

Pre Lighting : mainly woody. The construction seems great.

1st third : very strong beginning (too much from my point of view…). The flavours are very spicy and the smoke’s consistency is great.
On the retrohaling, aromas are woody, earthy with some pepper.

2nd third : not much evolution with mainly the same flavours
The aromas are also close from the 1st third : very woody and earthy with a little leather

3rd third : the flavours are still similar but a little more salty and globally the same aromas
I don’t have much experience but this is the 1st time I didn’t sense much evolution during the smoking.

The drawing and combustion were anyway good.

What I liked
  • Good drawing
  • Good consistency of the smoke
What I didn't like :
  • A limited palette of aromas
  • Not much evolution
  • Not very « delicate »
This was globally an average experience : not catastrophic for sure but the flavours were from my point of view too limited and not really to my taste. I was expecting something better and more subtle.
The cigar was anyway well constructed and well balanced but at the end I’ll say it was an average cigar so my note will match that feeling with a 5/10.

Was this aged or new production? It can make a difference for complexity (i.e., "evolution").

Yes you're right. Unfortunately I don't know. I bought individually 2 months ago but probably it wasn't aged at all indeed
