CI Knock Offs - Compare to Montecristo

The classic taste of the world’s biggest brand, for a fraction of the price. Indeed. The time has come, and this newest CI Knock-Off may be the best yet. A surprisingly similar blend to one of the industry’s most respected names, these eerily similar-tasting handmades will save you a whole lotta cash. Each time you smoke one of these smooth, creamy, and rich beauties, think about that Hamilton you saved, smile, then take another puff. You won’t miss much, but you’ll save so much cash you won’t know what to do with it all. 

Montecristo is a registered trademark of Altadis USA.

Today I received the Montecristo Knockoffs in the Churchill size. I was amazed. I could not tell the difference from the real thing. The consistency, easy draw, taste, and true flavor is that of the real MC. In the past I could only smoke one on special occasions because of the $11.00 cost per stick. Now this will be my every day premium smoke at about $2.00 per stick. I can have the best and save a ton of money. Thanks for bringing this great deal to us.
Good smoke for the price. Well constructed. I will buy again.
Love montes, haven't had one in awhile so I was intrigued and bought a bundle of robustos, just had one and I'm pretty suprised. Flavor profile extremely similar to the original MCs, alebit a bit harsher. The smoke was a bit thinner and harsher (by no means a harsh smoke) - however that's to be expected. Burned pretty quickly though. Very nice draw, but I doubt consistency wise they will all be like the one I had. Gonna have to buy a real stick to compare side by side one day, but pretty impressed.
These are a really pleasing cigar. I'd give them four stars.
Very well-made cigar (torpedo). Cuts cleanly, no unraveling, beautiful wrapper. Smooth taste. Not overly packed or loosely filled. A real treat. Save yourself some bucks and try this very nice example.
Was happily surprised with this stick, it is very close to the original, and perfect as a brunch/Lunch stick. It's a little bit like Rocky Patel and Torano came together and made a very yummy Medium stick. And for this price, how can you not love it?
This is the first time I've gotten Knockoffs and I have to say, they're pretty damn good and I will be buying them again.
Always consistently good!! A great value on an everyday cigar!
Never bought a Montecristo. Probably never will, given the price and quality of these knock-offs. Good wrap, nice draw, great finish.
I'm by no means an expert, but I know what I like, and I like these. Easy to light, easy draw and a nice smooth taste, what else could anyone want. Oh, I know, hey C.I. how about opening a store in Pittsburgh?
My new everyday cigar! Thanks, CI!
I ordered the churchill knock-offs and left them in my humidor along side of some Monte Cristo white label churchills. After 3 months the knock-offs smoke better than the real thing. I'm very impressed with these knock-off cigars. They have an even burn, light ash, and oh yes they definitely taste like Monte Cristos. If word gets around, I expect these will be a hot item. You can't beat the price.
The flavors of a Monte are definitely there although hotter and harsher. Perhaps a few months in the humidor will mellow them out.
These are without a doubt the best buy that CI has to offer. I have tried 5 of the 6 knock offs that CI offers. You can't beat these churchills for taste, smooth draw and excellent consistent construction, and that's not based on one or two sticks; it's based on about 100 or more and you won't have a heart attack if you happen to leave one laying on the golf course, you just light up another and enjoy. Much better than some of the $5-$7 sticks I've tried
