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 burn 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.

Very happy with this order. Good flavor with an even burn. Lots of bang for the buck! Not your high dollar Montecristo but a fantastic cigar non the less. I am ordering this again and would encourage others to do the same.

Close, but no....
Nope, not a Montecristo, but they are a decent and reasonably priced smoke. They draw well and have a decent flavor. Although the burn is not always even, so you will need to light the side that is not burning evenly on occasion.

Good smoke
Good smoke for the saturday on the course or grass cutting. Taste comes close to Monte. Construction not so much. Several really tight. Cap flakes after cutting. Half way through you get a lot bits and pieces in your mouth. I still enjoy them though

Don't read this review unless you are an avid cigar smoker
Smooth, miles and well constructed. The cigars have a good draw and a nice mild flavor. It won't knock your socks off but, that's kind of the point when you're ordering this type of cigar. No big bold flavors but it is smooth and easy to smoke. The price point makes it a great cigar to smoke if you are concerned about having your cigar time interrupted and don't want to burn an expensive stick that you might have to put down. I'd order it again But only to give to friends that are less experienced. To be clear, if you wanna try it, you'll be OK and you won't feel ripped off
5 out of 5
A very good cigar!
This cigar is probably the best inexpensive cigar I've ever had. Smokes like a $10 cigar for a 1/5 of the cost. Will definitely order again.

customer notification
I have been a customer for some years now and have noticed a change in some areas. On my last order after waiting for weeks I finally called and was told my cigars were on backorder and no know date was available for shipment. I ordered another brand and received them within a few days. It would have been nice if I was notified about the delay so I could have ordered something else earlier. Other than that I am pleased with CI---thank you

Good everyday cigar.
While they're noticeably more mild than the real thing, CI's knockoffs are a good everyday cigar. The consistent taste, draw, and burn quality are worth the price, and ensure that I always have 'em on hand.

The worst I've had! Not my lane for taste at all. I gave one to a friend that owns a cigar lounge. He said it tasted horrible. His associate suggested I put them in a humidor with a shot of whiskey for a month. There, they sit!

The "knock off" is a "rip off".
A good tasting cigar, BUT..... It's wrapped real loose. It burns rather quickly. Additionally because of the loose wrap you get tobacco in your mouth. I believe the tobbaco is short changed in order to save money, that's why the real loose wrap. The "knock off" is a "rip off".
4 out of 5
Smooth taste
The cigar is fantastic for the price. The only problem is the torpedo has been out of stock for a couple of months. Otherwise it is a 5 star cigar for the price.

On par with most $10+ cigars
Good quality, nice taste, even burn. Very enjoyable. Not just for a cheap cigar, but for any cigar in general. I’m starting to regret spending so much on expensive brands in the last. You don’t need a brand name cigar with an aesthetic label to have an enjoyable cigar experience. I think I’ve found my new go-to smoke.

Best Cigar Value I Have Ever Purchased
So good! Finally a cheapish cigar that consistently has a good draw, burns even, and tastes decent. Its not a premium, but I would smoke this before most cigars that are in the $5-$10 range. I look forward to it every time I reach into the humidor. Whether its for yard work or winding down in the evening. Fantastic value!

Both CI knockoffs were very dry when first received. The cigars are hard to enjoy as the leaves unwrap and the cigar basically falls apart. I should have sent them back.

Great stick at a great price
These cigars are great, especially for the money.. I actually just purchased these for the second time. These are very mild cigars. I usually prefer more full-bodied, but these are great while working in the garage or around the yard.
1 out of 5
Regret is an understatement...
I had high hopes for these sticks, but it just doesn’t pass muster. The wrapper cracked and was horribly wrapped by unwrapping while smoking. The inside was the most disappointing. Filled with scrap leaf which falls apart into your mouth as you take a draw. Packed lightly leaving an inconsistent draw. I’ve had some really disappointing cigars in the past, however this takes the cake as the worst cigar I’ve had. Please CI get some quality control on these sticks. There are a lot of potential in this run, but it’s just not even close. Why even sell this?

Good "Burner"
This is a good reasonably priced, everyday cigar. It won't replace a real Montecristo, but is great for just burning through cigars while you are working, or otherwise occupied. It's mild to medium bodied, and has ample flavor to keep you interested. It's not harsh, nor does it burn poorly. For the most part, a consistent, well made cigar.

Not Impressed
Flavor was fine for the price, however they fell apart and were the worst ones I have ever had when it came to the draw and enjoyment. Ordered me some Montecristo White Label Toro and threw these out.

Great stick, great price!
Wow what a surprise! This was an amazing smoke, awesome flavor, pull and just an enjoyable cigar. Being new I try many different cheap cigars and a good friend has been steering me toward more expensive cigars. As I have started enjoying the difference of a quality cigar I had a hard time ordering these but not disappointed at all. Enjoyed this to the nub.

Service & Quality
To a novitiate, the selection of good cigars is hit-miss or from word of mouth. Having tried a Montecristo, a shot at CI knock-offs is a pretty good risk. Not bad for a cigar. What's really great about CI is the service. Easy, quick and efficient on a superior note. I'll be doing business with CI for some time. Thank you.

When I first tried the
When I first tried the Montecristo CI Knock-off, I wasn't expecting anything "blockbuster." I slit open that first bundle and immediately recognized the aroma. It was reminiscent of other cigars I've had from Altadis. That was a good sign. After inspecting every inch of that first cigar, I was impressed with its obvious quality construction. But, the truest test, taste? Well, like I give people a second chance, I always give cigars a second chance, too, thinking that I'd not judge this product until I had at least another.

I'm halfway through these and haven't found a dud yet.

CI knock-offs - compare to Montecristo Torpedo
Overall I liked the cigar. It was mild to medium in flavor and had a flawless Connecticut shade style wrapper. However, on the negative side, I thought I was purchasing a long filler cigar. It burned like a medium filler cigar. It couldn't hold an ash, which I found annoying.

This is a solid product. It is fairly light, but has flavor. The wrap is good, soft like some of the RPs I like. It reminds me of a RP Edge with a little less flavor.

Not a good deal at all
I have only tried three so far, and I'm not impressed. First one I punched and the draw was impossible. Finally cut an inch off both ends and still no draw. Second one the wrapper pretty much fell off of the second third after cutting . The third one smoked OK and wasn't bad at all. For 1 out of 3 being enjoyable, just buy better cigars.

Good price, daily smoke
You can't smoke $5 sticks everyday without going broke. I like having 2-3 cheap bundles in my humidor for daily smokes and leave my pricey stuff to only one day a week. These do a pretty good job. They burn even, did not have to relight any so far. My only real complaint would be that I can tell they're a cheap smoke. I have others I've tried that are hard to believe that they're cheap; these are not the case. I would buy again, don't get me wrong. Its just important to know that bit going in.

Good even burn right out of the box. Nice flavor if you like mild. Only downside is a bit seedy and some stems at the end but overall what I expected for the price.

Good Smoke
This is a really mild cigar that draws and burns well and has a really great taste. The only drawback is that with a short filler, you will be spitting a lot unless tobacco leaf is part of your diet. Overall, a nice smoke for the money.

I tried these for the first time and have only had about 3, but they are a very mild, tasty and burn very well. I was very surprised. I did find that the last two I smoked were a little better after I left them in the humidor for a couple days. The first one I tried as soon as they arrived and it was a little dry with some mild outer leaf cracking after it was snipped. I would definitely buy again.

Bitter corona
I have ordered both corona and Robusto in past. Very happy with flavours! Last order in Dec was bitter with the coronas, no matter what I did with the sticks, either 60 or 70 percent humidity, patches of bitterness. I discovered another review to find the same sort of reply. Lots of ammonia . It's not CI's fault. They are a great company. They offered to refund. I'll wait till the summer to try another brick I guess,

The burn
The cigar is not bad. As for the cigar it is not a Montecristo. It seems to burn very fast and not rolled as tight as most cigars. But for the price you can not ask for a better stick. Great for walking the dog or getting in a quick smoke.

A pleasing smoke
This was an excellent smoke for the price and was everything it was promised to be. The only reason I held off a star was some of them were very hard to draw and it made them difficult to smoke. Happily it was only a few from the bundle of 20 and still worth the price.
5 out of 5
BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
For the price you can not get a better cigar. I have given these to friends without telling them what they were. Their first reaction is where did I get them and how much did they cost. I love everything about these. I highly recommend them and will definitely be ordering them again
