Montecristo Monte

For those who want to see the full MONTE!

With a name that’s short and sweet, this savvy, sophisticated cigar turns tradition on its head by employing not one, but two binders for an added dose of depth. The end result is robust, complex, and flavorful, leaving you with a highly memorable experience that’s a cut above the rest. A mix of aged Dominican long-fillers are cradled by a Dominican and a Nicaraguan Corojo binder, adding a touch of spice. It’s all bundled up inside an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. And coming from Montecristo, one of the most well-known cigar brands in the entire friggin’ universe, it’s no wonder this is one helluva tasty experience. Have a great time with Montecristo MONTE.

Montecristo Monte already caught the eye of critics, earning a 93-rating in the process. Here's what they had to say: "The cigar has plenty of leather and spice on the palate, with a note of chocolate on the finish. It’s a delicious new take on a celebrated old cigar brand."

I'm disappointed in these
I'm no expert but I do smoke cigars regularly and I find these to be hard to light evenly and hard to draw. I also have to work to hard to keep them lit.

Great Start
It is a very good cigar, The only reason it doesn't get a 5 star is that I have to leave them in my humidor for 3 weeks before they are in good condition to smoke.

The Monte were fresh and great taste from the peppery start to the smooth expression end. Nice smooth draw with an excellent burn.

Jacopo No.2
The Montecristo Jacopo No.2 truely is a delicious cigar. I recently smoked through a box and half of them. However my only gripe is i found about a third of them rolled a little to tight. This is why I typically avoid torpedos. In my experience torpedos often present more tight draws than any other size. So I just bought another box in the Toro 6x52 size. I have only smoked 3 Toros but I can definately tell the Jacopo No.2 has a much richer flavor. So in short if you can deal with an occassional tight draw the No.2 is excellent!

Not bad, but . . .
I Smoked the Belicoso-sized stick (Jacopo?). Beautiful cigar. Construction seemed spot on. Initial pre-light draw was similar to Raisin Bran cereal. Once lit, I got a full-bodied version of classic cigar flavors: Leather, tobacco, cedar. My problem with this cigar is that it never really went anywhere flavor-wise. In fact, the flavors seemed to become less complex as I smoked through this stick. In the last third the cigar seemed to have trouble staying lit. Also the cigar became pretty strong and I was definitely feeling the nicotine. I would be interested in trying this cigar in a smaller front mark. The Belicoso size was a little too much for me.

MONTECRISTO MONTE-This is a terrible cigar. It is very loosely wrapped , could not keep it lit. I have had better cigars for $1.50. I have never written a review but was compelled to do so after smoking this mediocre cigar. Paul

Just amazing! Smoked many ok cigars, but all have been lacking. This Monte has what I've been searching for! Perfect in every way and a taste that I truly love.

Very nice traditional taste
I started this cigar with a nice dry merlot then decided they weren't a match so I switched to a beer and that was the key. I am a huge Montecristo fan, mainly white or the classic but this is right up there on my list. It's a little stronger than I usually go for but the flavors were blended perfectly and it was a nice even burn from the foot to the end which took about an hour. When you think of a great tasting cigar this is the one you're thinking of.

Monte Conde...a delicious little treat!
The Monte Conde is a super flavorful robusto! Smoked one last night, produced huge amounts of smoke as well as strong notes of cream, coco, chocolate and cedar. Just a tasty treat. I'm excited to let the other 4 of the 5 pack I bought rest for another 6 months in my humi before lighting up!

Customer Testimonials
What a wonderful cigar. It was listed #9 on the Cigar Aficionado 2014 list of cigars. I have treid two other cigars that were rated higher on the list than #9 and this MONTE should be higher than #9 on the list. Starts with a little spice on the tongue, but has smoothness, with decent smoke output with hints of chocolate/vanilla caramel notes. We sampled it with a 30 year aged rum. WOW! Get yourself some of both.
I received this cigar for Christmas from my sister-in-law and well....she knows me! For one thing, I'm a huge fan of Montecristos as they are reliable and consistent. If I don't want to try anything new and want to spend time with an old friend, Montecristo is the place to turn. This was my first box-pressed cigar and the double binder was a bit hard to get used to as the flavor gets a bit wonky, however I brewed a fresh cup of locally roasted coffee from the Senoia Cafe in Senoia, GA (black of course) and all the notes evened out perfectly. The ash hung on for a good 2 inches, it burned perfectly even, and the You won't be disappointed! Spend some time with an old friend and take some time with a Monte!!
This is a damned fine cigar. For me, that's surprising. Before trying the Monte, the only Montecristos I cared for were the Platinum line and some of those that are off-limits to us 'mericans. Simply put, I really like this cigar. You should try at least one....
Excellent spicy notes. Nice robust medium-full bodied stick with plenty of flavor. Highly recommend the Monte if you like a nice complex cigar with a good rum.
Outstanding smoke. Definitely more medium bodied, not so much medium-full until the last third. The wrapper has a chocolate color and appearance. The odor of chocolate is definitely present prelight. Cigar has a good draw, perfect tightness. It produces a fair amount of smoke in the beginning. Pretty smooth smoke, almost kind of silky and rich. In the first two thirds the main flavor is chocolate and slight spice. It leaves a very pleasant after taste. Pretty sweet finish. The burn line is perfect, razor sharp. Required no touch ups. The ash lasted for about an inch or so before it needed to be discarded, consistent light gray color. The cigar finishes out more spicy than sweet, not overwhelming in the least bit. More generous amounts of smoke were produced after the first third was gone. This paired very well with a cup of coffee. Burn time was about an hour. Maybe a little longer. I tend to stick with more full bodied smokes, but I'll definitely be buying a box of these.
Amazing smoke. Burns evenly and the spice notes are great. It is a velvety smooth smoke. The wrapper hides the gem of a cigar that the Monte is. I bought a box and already have smoked through it all and will be buying more. Get these while you can. This is my #1 smoke right now.
The Monte No.2 is presently my favorite smoke. Im a newbie so I havent been exposed to a plethora of top end smokes but this cigar fits the bill for me. It burns well draws great and really opens up about a third of the way through. Great to smoke when you have a hour and a half to enjoy a good cigar at a good price.
Nice flavor, but burned a little funny due to the double binder. Overall a good smoke, nice finish.
