Quick Smoke: Montecristo 75th Aniversario Robusto

23 Aug 2009

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


Released two weeks ago at the annual IPCPR Trade Show in New Orleans, this new extension of the non-Cuban Montecristo brand celebrates the storied cigar’s 75th anniversary. The new stick, which will retail for upwards of $15, has an inviting, deep brown, oily wrapper. Once lit, you’re greeted with a combination of cocoa, chocolate, and earth. The cigar’s medium-bodied and well-balanced flavors remind me of another limited Montecristo, the highly-rated Montecristo Cabinet Selección. With excellent construction properties, it’s a fine smoke worth trying, even if the price gives you some pause.

Verdict = Buy.
