Quick Smoke: Montecristo Petit Edmundo (Cuban)

16 Oct 2016

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


On Friday, news broke that the Obama administration ended the prohibition on bringing cigars into the U.S. for personal use. (An earlier change had allowed up to $100 worth of Cuban cigars to be brought back only by licensed travelers to Cuba.) This will certainly kick off a rush of people wanting to try their first (legal) Cuban cigar, but the question remains: Are they any good? I get asked that question frequently, and the answer I always give is as follows: Like non-Cuban cigars, some are exquisite, others quite bad, and most fall somewhere between. This Petite Edmundo has over half a decade of humidor time, which has resulted in a savory smoke with roasted flavors, light spice, and a slight creaminess. I suspect many people will be disappointed when they finally get their hands on a Cuban cigar as they wont live up to the hype, but this well-aged Montecristo didn’t disappoint.

Verdict = Buy.
