Montecristo Media Noche

Dave Montecristo Goes Dark

Edmundo (5.0"x55) This fat robusto has a cool burn that slowly roasts its oily maduro wrapper. Sweet notes of cedar are on the palate with caramel and espresso undertones. Very nice burn.

No. 2 (6.1"x54) This torpedo brings some complexity to the palate with flavors that change over the course of the smoke which include notes of peat, wood and a short sugary finish.

No. 3 (5.5"x44) This corona has the most flavor relative to the other sizes. While the cigar became a bit hot toward the end, it brought complex and balanced flavors to the palate including a sweet coffee aroma that had a moderate finish.

Churchill (7.0"x58) This cigar was a bit difficult to smoke on account of its diameter. Bitter, damp notes of peat with hints of leather were on the palate with some balance issues.
