A mellow masterpiece, the famous Montecristo Classic is a beautiful cigar with a silky, golden-brown Connecticut wrapper. The prelight aroma is crisp with a cedar essence and a touch of sweetness. The aroma is delicate and the burn is slow and even. The Classic starts with white pepper notes that yield to a fabulous bouquet of creamy-smooth nutty, cocoa, and coffee flavors. With the last puff tasting as complex and delicious as the first, I found myself hanging onto this beauty until I almost burned my lips. I give two thumbs up for the Montecristo Classic, a truly scrumptious premium handmade cigar!
