Quick Smoke: Montecristo Edmundo (Cuban)

31 May 2009

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

Montecristo Edmundo

The Montecristo Petit Edmundo has been one of my favorite cigars for some time now, so I was excited to see what the longer Edmundo format had to offer. While a tad soft to the touch, the Edmundo has the same good looks as the Petit version, and later I found the construction to be outstanding with an even burn, ideal draw, and dependable ash. The smoke is a pleasant combination of cedar, leather, and toasty flavors. I’d agree that it isn’t as complex as the Petit format, but that doesn’t mean the Montecristo Edmundo isn’t a fine Cuban cigar.

Verdict = Buy.

    Patrick,

    I absolutely love the Petit Edmundo, but I have never tried its big brother. After your review, I will have to get my hands on a couple.

    Thanks, and great job with this review.

    This is a great habano, and in my mind, a stick that has become somewhat underappreciated in recent years due in large part to the success of its little brother. A medium flavor profile of earth, leather, and light spices with that characteristic salty twang present in the second third. 89 points non-blind in my latest notes from a November 2007 box.
