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.

Nice change of pace. Not quite a Montecristo, however, they are an acceptable alternative.

Good everyday cigar
These are good cigars, not great. Perfect for working in the yard or giving to friends that stop by for a cigar. They burned evenly although a little fast. They taste good, not too strong or bitter.

A Budget winner
Very good especially considering the price point. This is a great everyday cigar. Good for relaxing out back, or while doing yard work. Very mild. I would definitely buy again.

The Bargain for this was great. It basically average out to be $2 per stick. I definitely recommend getting them if you have a larger get gather and you want to offer cigars and not touch your prime inventory.

Good every day smoke!
Good price for a good cigar. Like others have mentioned, it's better to use a punch than a cutter for these. Every one of these burned well, and I didnt have any issues with any of them. Average of 60min of rich smooth smoke for each stick. The wrapper kept itself intact all the way to the end. Hints of pepper were detected with each draw with a smooth tobacco flavor. I'm impressed, and will most likely reorder these. A good cigar at a good price.

Fallen Flag
I have been buying these since they were first introduced. At one time they were worthy of a fine rating. However, the quality of these has been in a steady decline over the past couple years. The latest bundle I purchased was indeed worse than the previous. A true "fallen flag". I'm done with these.

I got these cigars for working in the shop. Dropping an expensive cigar in oil could make a grown man cry. I was not disappointed , but surprised by the mellow flavor. A couple cigars did burn a little uneven, but not bad. I will buy these again. The flavor is good, not harsh. Great with a cognac or whiskey in the evening also.

CI knock-offs
Since I’m a “rookie” cigar smoker I have not tried Montecristo cigars so I can’t compare the two . I enjoyed smoking the CI knockoff cigars. They burn evenly and had a good taste. I wish I could give a better review but like I said I’m a rookie and have not really had the opportunity to enjoy different cigars.

The only problem I have with the Montecristo knockoffs is that some of them have a very hard draw. To be fair many of the cigars I have received from CI have been that way. Still wont stop me from getting my cigars from CI .

Good daily smoke for the money
Only a few sticks in- so we'll see. So many great ratings that I was excited to try them. The few that I've had were inconsistent in flavor stick to stick- some leathery, some earthy and flinty, others had a sweet tobacco tinge. As Forest Gump said, "You never know what you're going to get." Despite the inconsistency, I enjoyed them all so far. Consistent for this bundle was the color, well made, a bit tight on the draw- but, nice burn ash to band. Perhaps my hopes were a bit higher than they should have been- like watching an 'OK' movie your friends were raving about. In the end, though, I'm not disappointed so far. Good daily smoke for the money.

Definitely not Montecristos, but worth the price
Tobacco is harsh and bitter. I’ve smoked a lot of Montecristos, and these were not comparable. But I still gave them 4 stars because they had a good draw and even ash, very well rolled. Definitely still worth the price, with knock-off expectations.

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

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!

I have burned through the last order of 2 bundles of these pretty quickly. They burn great, nice and even with an easy draw. I have handed out a few to friends and they like them too. Can't go wrong with these, I hope they continue to carry them and keep the price reasonable.

I bought them because you are out of the Torpedo 6. x 52 (MACS)

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.

A very nice cigar worth two to three times the price. I'd place it at a medium/mild, smooth, good construction, even burn, & consistent from cigar to cigar. It's a great golf cigar, among other times.

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!

Decent smoke, the filling sometimes is not well packed and the wrapper is probably too thin... but for the price you can’t go wrong... I would definitely order them again to have and enjoy...

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.

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.

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.

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,

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.

BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

These are fantastic everyday smokes. I'd call the flavor profile a good knock-off but not quite a Montecristo...I'm not really sure how else to put it. It's smooth and flavorful, each one draws well, and you can't beat the price. I've sold some of my friends used to paying $10 a stick on buying these instead.

They're cheap and can't be beat
Truthfully I can say these are very similar to the montecristo taste profile. It really is a great kick around stick. As these are short filler you will get some tobacco in your mouth if you use a standard cutter. I've found that a punch solved any issues. At this price you can't ask for much more. I would and will buy another bundle. Also, these have been in my humidor for about a year and they are still performing well.

good value
Good value, I have only smoked two so far, both on the golf course, lasted almost a full 9 holes. The first one had a few re-lights but otherwise both were a good mild burn. Jury is still out on the overall purchase but I think it will be a good value in the long run and I'll buy again.

I don't usually Smoke a lot of Montecristo's but these knock offs are very good, and a better value. I order them pretty often.

CI Knockoffs (Montecristo Corona)
I was not impressed positive or negative..(but they look exactly like the Original Cubans that I also ordered.I don't see any difference in size,packaging,or smoking them) maybe just different labels ? ) but I gave them 4 stars because I did smoke it with no problems.

Well it's a knock off
The wrappers were good as was the initial draw. The cigar smoked well and created a good ash. Plenty of smoke with the draw. It was more bitter than my customary Montecristo.

Quality, Flavor and Price
Title says it all. Unsurpassed when all three are factored in. An every day smoke for an every day price

CI Montecristo knock offs
Everyone in our golf group is smoking these now. It would take a real aficiodano to tell the difference. If you need a band to make you look good, don't buy em. If you want a great cigar that burns even, tastes good, even stays lit on a windy Mid-Atlantic golf course you can't beat them. These are my favorites and it doesn't take food off the table to fill your humidor with them.

Quality of cigars
Normally each one is perfect and taste great but this past batch had some cigars that we dry and I couldn't even smoke....so far out of 40 I have found 3 that were this bad....first time ever for this?

Okay for goolf course cigar
Flavor was nothing like a Montecristo. Some burned uneven (canoe) and some burned fine. Would probably not buy again. There are better golf course cigars available.

Macanudo knockoffs
Recently, I purchased a bundle of Cigars that you advertise as being like Macanudo. It would be more accurate for you to advertise them as being like King Edward. Otherwise, everything else is great.

I lived in Panama in
I lived in Panama in the 60's and in the free trade zone had access to the great Cubans. Montecristos were my favorites. These Knock-Offs drawn, taste and look like Cuban Montecristos. Because their sandwiched, they don't feel like Montecristos but at the price, who cares?

Stuck with - Bad Quality Corona Batch
When I received they were in very bad condition (very soft). I was told they might been over humidified. So keep them outside for a day and half, still no good, they are softer than cigarets. Unfortunately CI did not replace them with another CI knock offs I requested, which was good (the Robusto). Instead offered me offered me a partial refund which was not worth the RMA as I used the purchase with a gift card and 20% coupon on my original large order. Btw. I would not order Croronas agin from CI.

Very good cigar for a value.
I tried one corona before putting it for aging in humidor. Very firm,nice packed,burns evenly ,with a nice mild,smooth ,nutty and bit buttery taste. Just the way I like it. Its a great cigar,with a coffee, or some fruit forward red wine. Recommended!!!

CI Monecisto Robusto Knock Offs
Great cigar and value!
5 out of 5
Awesome!!!
I had my doubts about these but when I got them I was very pleased. I will be getting more for sure. Hats off to CI on these they are without a doubt a great comparison to Montecristo my only recommendation is to create a cool band as they come without bands. For me it's an extra bit of eye candy with my smoke.

probably won't order again
I have to say I'm a little disappointed in these. Quality is somewhat lacking and they burn very fast. Flavors are average at best. Most have stayed lit pretty well but I like a cigar that takes much longer to smoke.

great cigars
I have ordered many times and these knock offs are very good in taste and value.

Not even close
Let me start by saying that the knock off were a fine smoke, but they were not even close to what a true Montecito Corona taste or smoke like.
