Quick Smoke: Montesino Robusto Maduro

13 Jan 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Some of my favorite smokes are made by Fuente – the Hemingway line, the Double Chateau Sun Grown. This 5 inches by 50 ring gauge Montesino Robusto Maduro, though, was a disappointment. The Fuente site describes it as “full flavored, yet smooth.” I didn’t find that. To me, the flavor was harsh and the smoke, while abundant, was bitter.

Verdict = Sell.

    Interesting George. Maybe just a bad stick? Brian recently reviewed the Diplomatico and seemed to have a different experience:

    Jerry – I saw that and found it very interesting. I'll definitely have to smoke at least one more sometime, maybe when I drop by my local B&M.
