Montecristo Classic

A classic rendition of Montecristo.

To create the Montecristo Classic cigar, only the finest Connecticut shade wrappers were hand-selected to conceal a superior mixture of top-notch Dominican long-fillers. As expected, quality is on point with each cigar, producing a dependable cigar that’s mild, smooth, and well-balanced. Notes of wood and earth are present just before a crisp, somewhat spicy finish completes each puff.

Good news, Montecristo Classic has received a well-deserved 91-rating, noting, "A golden-brown lonsdale with an earthy, woody smoke underscored by notes of coffee and caramel. Richer than it looks."

Good ole Monte!
You can never go wrong with a Monte. They are good, they are consistent, and they are always a pleasure to smoke. A great all around mellow cigar that is nice to sit on the deck out back with a good scotch and enjoy.

Total Win
If you don’t get this deal then you don’t enjoy cigars. Nice Montecristos Connecticut shade smooth but loaded with flavor and then the Cohiba red dots. Churchill heaven. Highly recommend

good draw but somewhat stale
these smoked well but were a bit dry. I left few in the humidor for a week and they were better, but once tobacco dries out it never really recovers

Not my first choice for a mild cigar
Was not a fan of this blend. Cigar arrived in good condition, I just do not find the flavor profile enticing.

Monte's are best!
Well I was able to purchase these cigars at a very good price and they live up to their reputation. They taste and smoke very well and last without having to relight them every time the wind blows. I plan on vacationing in Aruba and instead of buying over-priced Cubans I plan on taking these with me.

Silky Smooth Smoke
WOW! I smoked the Churchill (7.0"x54), and believe me that's a lot of smoking. For me it was approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. The cigar was well constructed, mild with a creamy caramel taste, and a hint of spice at the end. It also had a very silky, smooth smoke that was very pleasureable. As the name suggests it is a True Classic.

Great Smoke
I enjoyed the cigars slowly. Thanks for excluding them with my order. Sometime, that's the only way I get to try other brands. I smoke these when I have the time to really enjoy them. Thank You .

I purchased this because of the promotions that CI offers. It is a mild brand with ave.taste but worth the value. It was an add on to my favorite brand which is My Father.

Unrolled
Nice flavor, but the first two I smoked the wrapper came undone. I guess they need more time in the humidor or they weren't properly rolled in the first place.

The whole Monte
Got a free five pack (thanks CI) and let them rest a month in the humidor, okay at first light a bit scratchy, good even draw, burned well and the flavor was consistent all the way. A bit mellow for me and had a classic tobacco flavor, Surprisingly only lasted an hour. Overall a nice cigar, especially for a big Churchill that didn't get overwhelming, will buy again

I have smoked montecristo knockoffs
I have smoked montecristo knockoffs in the past and were satisfied, so I assume I'll be satisfied with these. Although maybe I shouldn't since I have found a big difference in the amati bundles.

A Classic Smoke
A classic stick like Monticristo for free? How could I pass this deal up. When received they appeared a bit dry, so they will age in my humidor. Going to be some great smokes next summer!

Montecito classic churchills
I have smoked the Montecito no.7 in the past, and I must say the classic Churchill is a fine cigar. I would give it a 5 star rating!

Poor wrapper quality
I have a love/hate affair with Montecristo cigars that goes back 15 years. I like the cigars but have all too frequently been disappointed by the outer wrapper. Whether I smoke them right away or let them settle in my humidor for a long time, the outer wrapper tends to break or tear, sometimes even before taking them out of the wrapper; other times it is when I cut the end; or later when I am smoking it it will come apart. This should not happened to a 'premium' cigar such as these.

80% good...
Tried a five pack and the first one fell apart so bad, I took a "Mug O' Joe" picture of it in my face with almost no wrapper left. Looked like it exploded. It was the freak of the pack because the rest were perfection. Would have been 5 stars if all five had smoked.

I was very happy these smoked more toward a medium than a mild. They were perfect for a round of golf - lasted about 13 holes.

My favorite DR
What can I say, these are my favorite sticks. They have always been well constructed and easy to smoke. But, I find that for my best smoke, I let them sit in my humidor for at least a day.

smooth and flavor
I'm a new cigar smoker and I will say I did not want to stop smoking this cigar. It was really smooth and had a great flavor plus it burned nice and even. Thayer a little price for me to stock a humidor full but one or two a month would sute me fine. I will say take a chance and buy one there just that good.

A well-made, lighter-side Churchill
This is a well-made cigar with a sharp burn line and a good draw for its size. Lesser larger cigars are sometimes so stuffed they don't smoke right. I am a fan of very strong/dark cigars and thought this one would disappoint at first — but it's got some good flavors and exhibits quality construction which goes a long way in my book. I would likely not buy more for myself, being a fan of the strong stuff. However, if you prefer lighter blends you are likely to enjoy this one.

Montecristo is the best!
Love Montecristo and Classic is no disappointment. You just can't go wrong buying a Montecristo cigar!.
Customer Testimonials
All day long great smoker...right there with RP '99.
Just finished my Montecristo Classic Churchill, my first Montecristo actually. Been waiting patiently for 2 weeks for it to get a good rest in my humidor. Toasted it, and lit it anticipating a great experience. To say I am disappointed would be a massive understatement, but first I will tell you what I did like. Beautiful cigar, massive, well constructed, the burn is flawless and the draw is amazing, lots of smoke. Now the bad news..... it starts out harsh as many cigars do and it did settle down a bit. As far as flavors ..... all I could taste was "dirty ashtray",.... Once I peeled the yellow "classic series" label it started to get a little better with faint spice, but the taste never left completely. I will not even smoke the other one that came with my sampler....
GREAT texture, even burn, flavorful, mild. Very good cigar to enjoy while watching NFL playoffs.
I picked up a few of these churchills, and while it is a commitment, I loved every minute of it. It was a smooth smoke that happily finished a little spicy. Highly recommended.
Wonderful cigar. Yes it is mild so if you don't like the milder side, probably not for you but I have had nothing but a great experience with them. Great even burn, great flavor, just an all around good cigar.
Having waited until I smoked several of these before writing a review. It can be said that the ones I purchased had plenty of humidor time prior to being lit. With that said, I have had nothing but a great cigar and not one single regret on my purchase. It should also be noted that I am far from a novice, but I've never stopped trying to learn all that I can when it comes to the world of cigars. Without going into detail let's just say that I've smoked a great deal of different brands including some from Cuba. Because of this, I've had my share of both bad and good cigars. When it comes to the Montecristo Classic it is not a smoke that you want to rush, it is one that needs plenty of your time. The last one I smoked took 1:45 minutes to finish, which is a great deal of time unless you are enjoying yourself. The ones I received had great construction, even burn, plenty of flavor, with an abundance of smoke. The Montecristol Classic is smooth from start to finish, and isn't harsh in the least bit. It is worth the money spent to try a 5 pack of these and judge for yourself. I pulled the trigger on a box of the Churchhills and will probably do it again when the time comes
I received this cigar as a gift. I light one after a week in the humidor and the taste was great. The taste and draw was smooth. The smoke was heavy and pleasant. Thank you CI.
I love this cigar above all others (and I love me some others). It is my measuring stick. It is the reason I play lotto.
Was out of town and stopped by a smoke shop and bought a classic. It's an excellent cigar to smoke very nice flavor through out.
Montecristo Classic Churchill, mild bodied. Flavors of cream, spice, wood, cedar, tobacco, and hint of nuts. Very mild. Good draw. Excellent smoke output. No construction issues for me. The classic is a really mild pleasant smoke, I prefer medium to full bodied. The flavors were consistent but faint at times.... Will have to rest them and see how they perform later. I rate a 88 for consistent mild flavors and good construction
Sit down....smoke it and enjoy it. Can't buy a lot of these, but you deserve one now and then. I won't get all corny about the different flavors you'll experience, but you will find a nice change in taste through out. If i was smoking these every day, then you know I won the lottery. Hide a little secret money so the wife won't be upset. Tell her (or the kids) how much you enjoyed it You just might like your birthday or fathers day a little bit more.
A very mild cigar with decent flavor but with quite a few burn problems...tunneling, ash wouldn't hold, etc., things you would expect from a cheap cigar or 2nd but not from a ultra premium cigar such as Montecristo. It was a little disappointing.
These are among my favorite cigars. Smooth with nice woody hint and ending with a hint of spice. Perfect smoke for any time. Try one, I am sure you will agree. No humidor is complete without containing at least one of these babies.
