Monte by Montecristo AJ Fernandez

CI's #3 New Cigar of 2017!

So nice they named it three times! 

The old world heritage of Montecristo. The new world flair of Nicaragua. I hope you’re ready for a Montecristo like you’ve never experienced before, because Monte by Montecristo Crafted by AJ Fernandez (or MBMCBAJF for short) doesn’t pull any punches. The story behind this one is about as long as the name, so let’s skip it and jump right into the blend.

At first look, you’re going to know this is a cigar you have to get your hands on. Each gorgeous specimen in these boxes of 20 is expertly wrapped with a stunning Habano 2000 wrapper. Inside, you’ll find vintage Dominican Criollo binder and long-filler tobaccos, hand-selected from some of the finest harvest the DR has ever experienced. And the flavor. Oh baby, we could write paragraphs about every complexity contained in this powerhouse blend. Coffee, thick sweetness, dark chocolate, and a warm and nutty core meld together perfectly into every puff. Try one today, we guarantee you won’t regret it. 

Monte by Montecristo by AJ Fernandez received two 90-ratings, and a 91-rating, noting: "Enrobed in a pristine, chocolate-brown cover leaf, this cigar burns and draws evenly, delivering big notes of coffee, fruit and toast with touches of dark chocolate."

Great Cigar
Another Great cigar by Montecristo, Have always been a Montecristo fan and this little cigar proves why. Thanks CI.

Monte Cristina by AJF
Excellently made, very good smoke. Not quite full-bodied.

Right smoke, wrong size
This is one of AJF's very best efforts. Good to see that he is adept at blending Dominican tobacco as well as Nicaraguan. My only problem is with the short size of the robusto, especially when the generously sized toro costs virtually the same amount.

Another nice stick
Seemingly small, but big on flavor. Well made, long burning. Don't usually invest in a stick unknown. Would by again........

Surprisingly sultry
Very good cigar - beautiful box press compliments a tasty wood start and sweet nutty finish - draws well and has a little kick with its full flavor- must have!

Not a bad one - a little to short though
They were a nice taste, but I either enjoyed them way to much or they just burnt faster than others I have taken out of my humidor. I would get again though as I don’t always have an hour to sit and enjoy one.

Always a great smoke.
Have been a CI fan for some time. These folks sent me my cigars when I was in Iraq (retired Army), in Germany and everywhere else I’ve been assigned. I still love CI now that I’m retired. They never disappoint.

Robust, nutty, med to full flavor
love this size cigar. AJ did a wonderful job on this cigar. It starts off earthy with a bit of pepper. progress to the second 3rd, it gets nutty, with hints of cedar and earth. it finishes with a wood after taste that lingers and reminds you of why you love cigars.

My favorite
This is one of the best cigars I've ever had. Full of rich and enjoyable flavors, too many to name. It would be the only cigar I smoked if it costed a little less.

A Jewel from AJ
I smoked many Montecristo cigars over the years, including a few Cubans, and I must say I was very impressed with this cigar. Upon lighting, your palate is filled with an abundance of spices. About a quarter in, the spices ease off and your greeted with flavors of chocolate and espresso. The finish is long and leathery with some black pepper. It has an easy draw and a slow even burn. Excellent Cigar!

AJ Scores Again
Everything AJ blends is a cigar worth trying. I've never had an AJ Fernandez cigar that I didn't enjoy and this is no exception. He is a master.
4 out of 5
Very good
Finally, a Montecristo that has some stones. Give AJ a chance and he'll turn any boring brand into a super fine stick. these are medium bodied with plenty of super nice flavor. First non Cuban Monte I've smoked that was actually enjoyable. I like em with some oomph and lots of flavor.

Montecristo perfection
I have lived the Montecristo line for years. From the creamy White series to the Montecristo Monte. They keep coming up with new ways to wow me. Teaming up with AJ Fernandez was pure Gold. Nice work gentlemen. Good call. You have another winner.

Excellent Stick!
I'm a big AJ fan. Love Enclave, New World etc. Because of this I've made it a must to try AJ's collaborations with big name brands like UPmann, Hoya, R&J and Monte. This one does not disappoint. I tried the robusto size. It was like smoking a chocolate bar. Excellent construction, burn, draw and flavor. Definitely "box worthy"!

Really Good Cigar
In my opinion, this is another excellent blend constructed by AJ. Maybe I’m a little biased, I have yet to find a Fernandez cigar I dislike. You must try this one.

Relaxing cigar
This is a very nice smoke, good easy draw and nothing better to have in my hand, with good scotch in the other hand sitting around the camp fire

Enjoyable short smoke
A very nice smoke. The 4" is ideal for if you don't have an hour or more to relax and enjoy a longer cigar.

Not bad but there s something missing in my opinion. Its a bit tough of a draw and rough at the beginning and end.

Misadvertised
Cigars fine, but it was advertised as a 6x54 and it came as a 4x54. I called to complain and they said it was a typo in the magazine and that the right info was in the website when I ordered. The same typo was in the magazine and second time. I call that false advertising since it wasn’t corrected. That’s what I think of these cigars.

I was very impressed with the cocoa aroma right out of the box. Razor sharp burn and pack full of complex flavors. The robusto is perfect for a quick smoke that does not disappoint.
