Montecristo Media Noche

Hearty maduros from Montecristo cigars.

Montecristo Media Noche: a beautiful, dark cigar graced by a thick Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper – oozing with natural oils. Under the wrapper resides a well-aged mixture of hand-selected long-fillers from Nicaragua, Peru and Dominican Republic. This hearty combination delivers ample oomph but in a balanced, enjoyable manner. It delivers an intense bouquet of flavor throughout, including a cedary core complemented by hints of leather and toastiness. The aftertaste is both sweet and spicy, satisfying each part of the palate equally with a savory, full-bodied cigar experience. Give this blend a shot, and discover the dark side of Montecristo.

one helluva cigar!
purchesed these through the BYO motherlode sampler, arrived extremely fresh, perfect sponginess. smelled like a whole choclate bar when i opened the package, cellos still on! these burned real slow and smooth, tasted amazing. one of the most delicious smokes ive had. only gripe was that i personally like lots of thick chewy smoke, and these didnt put that much smoke off. my personal flaw, but not the cigars. great cigar, would order a whole box!

MonteCristo Media Noche
This cigar is costing me a fortune. It is by far my personal favorite Cigar to date. I have to acknowledge "To Date" because with Cigars, there might just be another that rivals or surpasses my preference. So far, with hundreds of challengers, it is still my overall favorite. If you see it on sale, grab as many as your humidor will hold. Or in my case, buy a bigger humidor.

Montecristo Media Noche
Very tight draw upon arrival from CI and actually set them outside my humidor to dry out, with some success. Probably needs more time in the humidor. My second stogie had a better draw and began to pick up strength about two-thirds in. Still a little mild for me because I smoke almost exclusively Diesels. Will give numbers 3-5 (from the 5 pack) a chance to prove themselves. A great price from CI though.

Monte Cristo fan forever
This blend lives up to the name and quality. Great smoke.

Not a fan
Very disappointed with this stick. The first one i had i thought maybe i was unlucky, but i tried another 6 months later and it was the same as the first. I figured maybe letting them sit in my humidor for 6 months might make a difference, but it didn't. They both had a very difficult draw, little to no smoke. Flavor profile was less than desirable as well. Couldn't even make it to the 2nd third before tossing and grabbing something else. I will say it burned evenly and it looks well crafted but really thats the only positives i can give this Montecristo.

Actually this cigar is aliitle above average but not enough to give a 4. It reminds me of Padilla cigars. The draw and construction were typical Montecristo ie well made. This is a more full bodied smoke and earthy.

Perfect after dinner
I smoked Churchill's a few weeks ago, and got a pleasant experience that lasted for almost two hours at my pace. These are more or less the same, but the Torpedo shape helps to taste the notes better in the palate. Subtle spiciness and sweetness

What a cigar!! I really liked it
This cigar tricked me at first. It was extremely smooth with an extremely smooth retro that you couldn't even feel. I thought this was going to be your typical smooth and light Monte Cristo but when I got to the second half of the cigar everything changed. It went from a firm draw very light feel to the mouth and playful to a medium to full body..and pepper on the Retro. Great looking cigar nice dark wrapper and densely packed. A solid stick. Very pleasant raisin sweet smell off the foot before the light. Ash held on like a champ till almost halfway. Excellent Construction good burn. Mostly creamy wood taste on this stick. I truly enjoyed it as I will be buying more. Thanks CI

Cigars arrived extremely dry.
The cigars arrived after normal shipping time of 4 to 6 business days and were extremely dry. I put them in the humidor, but one cigar was so dry that even after a few days in the humidor the cracked wrapper would not heal. After over a week in the humidor the next cigar seemed to have re-hydrated fine. I am hopeful that all of the remaining cigars now in the humidor will be in better shape than the first one opened. The cigar itself was a very enjoyable cigar.

Disappointed
Disappointing for the first 2/3rds of the smoke. All 5 sticks lacked a good volume of smoke for the palate. I expected more body from a maduro and the name. Not until the last 1/3 did I experience an enjoyable richness. The sticks had a nice relaxed draw they just didn’t seem to produce much of any experience.

I have bought this one in a sampler but it was a robusto size cigar. Definitenly not the same. Could be because they need some time in my humidor. Seem dry and harsh unlike the robusto version.

A great buy on a favorite cigar.
I have always enjoyed this cigar for years. I watch for good sales and stock up whenever I find a good price. I have a handful of favorite cigars I scan all sale ads looking for. CI has the best prices more often than their competition. I almost always buy specific favorites and am past the stage of buying samplers. The Super Bowl gets two of these Montecristo Media Noches every year.............

Favorite Non-Cuban Monti
Media Noche is my favorite non-Cuban Monti, and one of my absolute smokes period. The depth of flavor is great, notes of espresso, etc, it is a great full body stick that doesn't give you abuzz the further down the stick you smoke.You can't go wrong with this one if you are a full body fan!
4 out of 5
Be careful what you ask for.
This is the second time I've bought the Montecristo Media Noche Edmundo. I first purchased it in a sample pack and found it very enjoyable, so much so that I ordered 10 more on line. No doubt a full bodied stick, extremely smooth and burns well. I will continue to buy it as I'd always like to have it available in my humidor. Having said that, the Montecristo Media Noche Edmundo has reminded me that I'm more of a medium to full kind of guy.

REVIEW OF MONTECRISTO MEDIA NOCHE CHURCHILL

Worthwhile Smoke
I've been wanting to try these for quite a while, but I didn't want to just go blindly, so I waited for a deal. These are quite a good smoke. They are definitely full-bodied, but not over-bearing. It's mostly pretty consistent, though it does get a bit peppery in the final third. My only criticism is the ones I've had so far seem to be a very tight roll, which can cause some draw problems. It's not a critical issue and hasn't needed to be fixed with a draw tool, but it's something to be aware of and why I dinged it a star. I would definitely purchase these again.

Keep some of these in my humidor for special occasions. They taste great , burn slow and even. Always good while barbecuing, watching your favorite football team, or just kicking back to enjoy a smoke that you can count on to be good .

One of the best
You won't hear me say "nice notes of coffee" or "Hints of Hazelnut frappachino" or even "vanilla bean finish" but the Montecristo "Media Noche" is a great cigar. Every time I smoke one it reminds me of the very best Cuban I had ever enjoyed (the Monte #2) almost the same feel and it draws perfectly! By far my favorite

Wonderful cigar
For the price, it's tough to beat this from Montecristo. Nice dark wrapper, smoke is creamy and smooth, just an overall pleasant smoke.

Love the Media Noche.
Must try. Nice, rich flavor. Great profile. Not too strong, but not a wallflower either.

Awesome smoke! A bit tight on the draw, but one of the best I've had so far. Definitely a keeper!

Smoking a year now and got 5 pack with a hefador. Great one here! Not rough at all. Lots of flavor but not too much pepper, (good for me!) super even burn with thick chewy smoke. Would recommend and buy again

Don't take my word just buy some!
Wow!... wow!.... Stopped what I was doing to tell you this is a fantastic smoke. Burning so smooth that when I just sat it down to type the 3 inches Ash just made an audible thud in the ashtray, and is still intact. This is a must have in the humidor!

My first choice. Hands down. Every cigar smoker should keep these in their private collection

Great blend and even burn. Enjoy
Hearty rich flavor. Burn is solid and flavor is consistent. Another good one for the group out of the DR.

Montecristo Medi Noche
A surprisingly pleasant maduro from Montecristo. It's a tight draw but not disruptively tight. This stick has a razor sharp burn and is never hot, even in the last 1/3rd. Solidly medium bodied and consists of a blend of subtle notes -- primarily chocolate, pepper, and espresso. It's a distinctly dark flavor but it somehow manages to be light at the same time. An overall great smoke but not extraordinary. I wouldn't recommend shelling out extra bucks for this one, but if they're on sale, you won't regret filling the extra space in your humidor with them.

Awesome Cigar!
I first tried this cigar as a sampler in 2007 and I thought to myself, what a good smoke! It is now my favorite and I introduced it to several of my friends. People have different likes but this beauty should be enjoyed by all. This cigar is a grand slam, touchdown, and 3-pointer all wrapped up in one!

Sub-par
Didn't like these as much as I thought I was going to. Not sure if I got a bad batch, but they were one of the tightest rolled cigars I've ever smoked. It was very difficult to get a full draw off of these and when I finally did, the flavor wasn't that great. Wouldn't recommend these.

One of my most favorite cigars that is so hard to find out in the public cigar shops. This cigar is a must have!

Newb review
Got 5 of these in a Chosen One III sampler and really enjoy these babies. The first one was good, liked the draw and the flavor. The second one was better after a few weeks in the humidor, hopefully #3, 4,& 5 will keep the pattern going. I am new to the cigar game so my ability to pick out a lot of the nuances of flavor is limited but I think these are excellent cigars. There is a bitterness towards the end but the majority of the smoke is nice and not overpowering.

What a surprise to a mild cigar lover!!!
First let me admit that I haven't been smoking cigars for too long, but one thing I already know, I don't like peppery/spicy cigars. I have a preference for mild/medium smokes. But I got 5 of these Edmundos in a sampler and after a few weeks in my humidor I finally had the balls to try one of these. I was really scared of the dark wrapper and the medium/full body description. I light it and OH MY God.... These are very smooth. Couldn't get the pepper note that many people like but I hate which of course is a BIG plus for me. I was really impressed and the smoke was thick and cool with a good draw. Don't understand the bad reviews and people saying it lacks flavor. What it lacks is pepper and that might explain the bad reviews. If you are like me and tend to like mild cigars, this one will be top on your list. Love CI samplers for this same reasons you discover gems and new favorites. Will definitely order more.

Great initial taste!
I dont know what everyone is talking about it being bland. It is very sweet, very good draw, 2-3 quick puffs gets lottts of smoke. or 1 long draw. good draw. Deep rich flavor, its definitely an evening type smoke as the name suggests. Subtle and light, yet very tasty, coffee, earth, and finish with spices. However it does get bitter at about halfway, and continues on with that taste.

Horrible
This is not a good cigar. The only thing going for it is a very even burn. The draw is difficult. The flavor is plain, no nuances of anything. After the first third it became too bitter to smoke. At that point I discarded it.
1 out of 5
Do not buy
Got these in the Build Your Own sampler. They are absolute garbage. I tried smoking one and it just would not smoke. Let the other 4 sit in the humidor for a few months. 1 out of 5 was actually smokeable, and it tasted just OK. Kind of musty and soggy. I tried poking, rolling, cutting more, cutting lit end and re-lighting; I just could not get them to draw and burn.

Love smooth taste
It's addictive!

I was looking forward to this one
The taste was not good, it reminded me of a cigarette or maybe a little like the roasted smell from the bug zapper on the porch. But it did burn evenly and looked like a nice cigar, but it did not taste or smell good.

Flavorless
I don't even know how to describe this cigar...I have aged it for a year and finally had one on a Sunday morning. Good burn, draws a lot of smoke, smooth, but no flavor, like someone said smoking a wood. Where's the taste? It's a good cigar, but not for "Montecristo" price point and I'm not ashamed to beexpecting more from maduro.
1 out of 5
Boring
Sorry Monte. Just a boring stick. Looks nice and burns even, BUT, little smoke and no flavor... nothing good to say about it. Way over priced, or I'd give them away to the mooches.

Tight and tasty
This is a smaller cigar that has a nice taste and firmness to it, thus a fluid draw. I like it.

One of the best at this price point.
This is a great cigar. I expect to buy many more boxes.

Not all Montecristo cigars are good
One of the worst cigars I have ever smoked. Can't think of one good thing to say. Smelled like a dirty horse stable. Hard to believe it is a Montecristo product. Put the rest in the trash can [outdoors]

Blah cigar
Smoked 1/2 a box. Inconsistent draw, usually too tight, not much smoke and washed out flavor. Very much overpriced for the quality of the smoke. Just mediocre at best.
4 out of 5
This is a winner.
For such a reputation as a almost full bodied stick this stick was extremely smooth. I am enjoying this stick as much as any Conn I have ever had.

Disappointed
Great construction and draw. I was disappointed with the flavor though. It started out with some ok fruit taste but then an infused flavor started in that reminded me of an herbal Drew Estate Blend. Not for me.

They are not the cigar they used to be
This cigar used to be a 4. It seems like when they changed the ring on it the changed the cigar too. They weigh less and the wrapper is very rough. I don't think they sealed the one I'm smoking now. The draw is good but very little smoke production. The flavor is ok but it no longer the wow factor they used to be. It used to have a little of that barn yard taste to it. I still have a box of Edmundos and Churchills. I even think I still have some of the older versions aging. Maybe this cigar is a fluke, but if they don't get better These will be the last ones I get. It's a shame though because these used to be one of my favorite non Cuban smokes. I wish I could include a picture of this veiny, ripply Franken-smoke. It's downright ugly.
4 out of 5
Very smooth cigar for a more full bodied cigar!
My preference as I have gotten older has been to smoke milder cigars but I found this cigar very enjoyable, smooth and full flavored without being harsh or overbearing. I have been redefining my tastes by buying samplers and this was part of a sampler and I will order this cigar again. I am new to Montecristo and have Platinum, White and Yellow label tubes I got a deal on from a local cigar shop and I have been pleased with every Monte I have smoked including this more full bodied Monte. Definitely more full bodied than other Montes but delicious.

I smoked 2 of the five in the sampler and they are a disappointment, no flavor, like smoking wood. This brand has gone downhill. I have tried many Montecristoes and they don't compare to other comparably priced cigars.

Superb in every respect. Black Cherry, Coffee, Excellent Draw and Burn to the Nub.

Disappointment again with Media Noche.
I was very disappointed with. Literally the first Monte Cristo I ever had that had soft spots. The taste was wet and not nearly as flavorful as a "real" Monte Cristo. I have now tried all of the different Media Noche and found all to be far inferior to the other brands cigars. Don't wast you time.
5 out of 5
AMAZING!
Oh man these are amazing. As soon as you light one you get that aroma of dark chocolate like flavor. When you puff these bad boys you will be surrounded by nice thick smoke. I usually don't prefer a dark cigar but these things are worth every penny and some. My humidor will never be without these great creations.

Brotherly Love !
My brother Jim stopped by one afternoon, and we enjoyed a MC Media Noche sitting on the patio....WOW what a great smoke ! Had to order my own the next day.
5 out of 5
Mind Blowing!!!
I got these cigars in a bundle. FACTASTIC!!!! Great even burn with a splendid aroma!!!! I recommend a V cut when smoking these for a nice easy full draw (although that is my personal opinion). These are now my new favorite cigars! I will definitely be purchasing these again soon.
Customer Testimonials
These Media Noches are wrapped so tight that even after using a "drawpoker", the effort required to draw and keep them lit becomes a chore. This has been true with every shape I've ordered, so I give up!
This is now my hands down FAVORITE cigar!!! Love the Montes and also periodically get Partagas Black label. And just tried the Media Noche sampler--may get some RYJ and H Upmann Media Noches....but these Montecristos are the best! FIVE STARS!
I have been hooked on these since I got a 5 pack with a box of Montes. LOVE them! Definitely fuller and tastier than "regular" Montecristos.
For years I was (and still am) a big fan of Partagas Black label. Never cared much for Montecristo because I like a more full-bodied smoke. But now its a toss up between the Media Noches and Montes as to my favorites. Still love the Partagas Black but cannot recommend the Montes and Media Noches highly enough. GREAT smokes both!
I absolutely loved these.. even creamy sweet burn with notes of coffee and a nutty finish.. right up my alley.. would've liked more chew but none the less it was a great smoke from start to finish..
Absolutely love the Montecristo Media Noche. I received 5 of these in a sampler and have smoke my first two to the nub. I'm will order a box of these with the intent on aging them for a few months. The flavor of this is full bodied but creamy with sweetness and a nutty taste. I'm still looking for something I enjoy as much.
Fantastic cigar for the money and an excellent everyday smoke.
I hate to say it, but I am in the minority here. Picked up a flight sampler about a month ago after CI offered a great 1-day deal. Maybe my expectations were too high, but these smokes just didn't do much for me. Hopefully my opinion will change after some more aging as some reviews have alluded to. At nearly half the price I prefer others to these. Different smokes for different folks I suppose.
Very easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Perfect white ash and heavy smoke output that is slightly oily on the palate. Mild to medium strength and medium to full flavor. Deep flavors of cocoa, coffee and molasses. Becomes milder in the second half with no spice and a hint of sweet cedar on the medium to long finish.
Great taste! It came fresh and fast!
Received this at random in a cigar club shipment, and gotta say I was thoroughly impressed! Wonderful smoke, paired quite well with a Jameson on the rocks, great draw, and lotsa very creamy smoke! I succeeded in annoying the other bar patrons with the sheer amount of smokethis cigar put out! Definitely recommend this cigar! Thank you CI, I love you guys!
Just bought my 5pk of the #3's. wonderful smoke. With montecristo you know you'll get great construction, so I won't bother with that here. What you should know is that these cigars are absolutely loaded with wonderful flavors. Some reviews on other sites say that the draw is hard but I haven't noticed that at all. These sticks have a surprisingly long burn time; I tend to smoke more quickly than others and the cigar still lasted about 45 minutes. Highly recommend this cigar to anyone.
Wow!The first Montecristo(Medianoche-edmundo size)that I really enjoyed.These are excellent cigars.Consruction,draw,flavor,aroma,burn quality are all top notch.If these are too pricey for you,catch them on special,totally worthwhile.Thanks CI!
This is what Montecristo should be! Excellent, balanced smoke that is medium full. The ONLY Monte that I really like!
I bought the Edmundo Herf-a-dor combo while deployed to Afghanistan, and all I can say is WOW. These are a great smoke with a nice, tight draw and smooth all the way. These are going to be permanent residents in my humidor.
First time I ever had and it won't be last. Extremely smooth with tasty flavor. What a nice smoking experience. It wasn't burning fast nor slow but just right. Usually there's some kind flaw with other brands. I've heard alot of good and they stand very proud when they speak. There are so many good things to say so I'll say this try them an you'll be speaking the same.
I bought these as part of a Herf-a-Dor combo to see if it was worth all the noise. Well I under-estimated this gem to say the least. If you want a real cigar with a great full taste, and great smoke look no further. Buy the Herf-a-Dor deal, and quickly buy another box to put to rest you won't be disappointed. Thanks again CI.
This is one smooth smoke. I greatly enjoyed this cigar. Very well made and quality throughout. I had to load up on these (Edmundo) after having enjoyed this one so much. Enjoy!
Media Noche is a beautifully constructed smoke wrapped in an oily,dark broad-leaf wrapper that makes your mouth water just holding it your hand. It has a very smooth, perfect draw and leaves a thick smoke trail like a .357 that billows up from the foot between puffs. Nice earth tones with a sweet, almost cocoa like finish. Have at least an hour to kill before enjoying this beauty as the Edmundo (5x55) lasted me a surprising 65 minutes. This will be a permanent staple in my humi.
The Montecristo Media Noche is THE best non-Cuban Montecristo hands down.
Awesome!!!
Monecristo [like Cohiba] is a brand saddled with counterfeits. But you get the real deal... it's always a man's cigar. This Media Noche [named after a Cuban grilled sandwich - that will put you down], this bad boy will keep you up till mid-night! First off, for a lush and oily aged maduro Broadleaf... that was step one in creating a sassy girl. Then add a hint of leather, and as you begin to note the bouquet is light with a hint of sweetness as you draw down on it. Not a huge fan of Monecristo - but I really like this Media Noche... heck, oil... leather, spice - see a picture coming together? This is the girl at the club that buys you a drink, and spanks you all the home! My rate, this stick: 89
Ordered these while deployed to Iraq. Not only did I receive my shipment in about 8 days ( fast given it went around the world) but I couldnt believe the taste. I ordered these in the combo pack with the lighter and travel humidor so I was a little sceptical about the quality of the cigar for such a low price. I sat down in the sand and figured I would give these a shot over all the other cigars I had ordered. Completely amazed over how smooth, slow, and evenly burning this cigar is. After an hour of heaven I went to bed in peace knowing this is by far one of the best cigars I had ever tasted. Will forever have a few of these at the ready.
I have to say, I bought the travel pack with these for myself and my father as a gift. After I lit one up on my 30 birthday a couple weeks ago. WOW, this I do believe is my favorite cigar. I still have 3 more from the first five and have already ordered another box of 20 to let sit awhile in the humidor. If you like a more full flavor cigar than you'll enjoy these. Also if you don't have a HERF-A-DOR, buy the combo kit and get a great travel case with five Montecristo Edmundo's in it, that's a hard deal to miss out on for fourty bucks. Thanks CI
Just had one of these after work on Friday to celebrate the weekend and wow, such a flavorful cigar. Like some reviewers had said, it has a tight draw but I like it that way. It makes for a slower burn, which was nice and even all the way through. It took a little over an hour to smoke the edmundo that I had and by the end, I thought that it will be tough to find a better smoke. Absolutely loved it.
Sorry, but I can't say much that is positive about this smoke (Montecristo Media Noche). I had a ten pack from CI resting in my 3rd humi for about 8 months and I was very disappointed, I gave the rest away. Flavor was ok but very little smoke. El Mejor or a Liga Privada are much better than this.
I purchased the (Montecristo Media Noche) and usually let cigars sit for awhile but I got a little bit too anxious and immediately lit one up. The draw was terrific. For a Full Bodied cigar it was surprisingly even and smooth til the very end. It had a deep taste that left almost a light pepper taste in your mouth. The Edmundo size was perfect accompanied with a coffee that made a perfect ending to a cold New England Night.
The Montecristo Media Noche is, perhaps, close to the perfect cigar. Great flavours. Deep, rich, and a little sweet.... Perfect draw. Perfect Burn. A lot mellower than some of its kindred in other brands. If you like the dark tasting cigars, but want a little mellower experience, this cigar is the bomb-diggidy.
Montecristo Media Noche Edmundo Very mellow tons o smoke Steve O nailed it read his review as well, IMHO just about perfect construction for me a little soft great draw, oily wrapper, sweet taste very similar to the pardon 5000 maduro but a little darker. As dark a wrapper as ive seen that wasn't spray painted like some cigars. Full flavored maduro and no black tongue afterwards ;)
These are knock out smokes. (Montecristo Media Noche) Great right out of the cello, but if you age them a bit, you won't be disappointed. I wish I had the dough or patience to let them simmer for a year, but it's my go-to when I want something completely satisfying. The wrapper is delicious... leather and nutty....The sweet spot smokes like a dream with consistent flavor. I love the churchills because that sweet spot lasts a long time. Nothing in Montecristo's line is anything like this!
A very nice Montecristo. (Media Noche) This one offered a very slightly tight draw which probably contributed to its slow, cool burn. Very nice prelight aroma and an excellent flavour. At about a $10 retail price, it isn't cheap, but it's a fine, flavourful cigar. My first one went somewhat uneven in the burn which is unusual for a Monte, but nonetheless it's a fine smoke.
I have to admit, I was reluctant to fire-up my first Media Noche as it was the first dark-wrapper cigar I have tried since I ran out of Cohiba Blacks, which were given to me as a gift. What a nice surprise. I just did not expect such a "luxury" smoke for the price. No need to spend big bucks for a creamy, wonderful rich flavor. This one is a first rate stick and has earned a top spot in my line-up.
Wow. Just decadent (Montecristo Media Noche). As a fan of fuller bodied cigars, I can honestly say that this delivers, both to belly and palate... Woody, leathery notes, hints of spice... Slightly sweet aftertaste... Love the Edmundo size... Can't go wrong with this one...
This cigar is a must have for any humidor (Montecristo Media Noche). I bought my first box of these in the edmundo size back in May of 07. Since I have bought 2 more boxes and have to have these in my humidor. The flavor is one you will want to savor over and over. I have shared a few with family members and every time they too agree it is one they need to keep as well. They are very full of flavor and will go with anything you drink with them. If you haven not tried these you are missing out.
Media Noche is one fine cigar and my new favorite maduro. I have been smoking cigars for about 1 1/2 years now and am a big fan of Maduros. I normally stick to cigars in the 2 -5 dollar range but decided to purchase these babies because of the unreal freebie that only CI can offer which brain washes me into clicking the purchase button. The construction and burn is top shelf to any cigar I have had. It has a tight draw but comes with plenty of smoke and will not burn hot. I am not good at pointing out flavors but you can definitely taste the distinct flavor that maduros offer plus other pleasant complex flavors. It also leaves a nice sweet after taste. I normally let cigars sit in the humi for a couple weeks before smoking but could not resist smoking one immediately after these sticks arrived because of its beauty, feel, and smell. Can't wait to see how these babies taste in a couple of months.
Just got the 2 boxes I won on Saturday. Unreal smoke. Montecristo really knows what they are doing. Really a commanding size, chewy texture, oily(which I love, Dark (which is great), Contruction (superb), lot of smoke on every draw but slow burn not super slow but doesn't burn hot. I had the torpedo Montecristo Media Noche this weekend though it was tight but good this is a nice pull but again doesn't burn fast or hot. The taste it really amazing. It has a sweetness to it like the ad says. It is quite remarkable. Really complex. Cigars say it but this one is. I used a punch which was perfect. Enjoy..........

Montecristo Media Noche

Steve R

I’ve really been struggling this week. I can’t snap out of it. The weather has been flippin’ gorgeous and I just want to be out on the golf course. Despite putting the lives of others at risk with my horrific slice, it’s always good to be out in the sun with the guys and a great cigar or three. But, I’ve hardly had time to hit the range after work, let alone make room for the course.

Adding insult to injury, a delicious new cigar hit our docks just in time for the golf season. Montecristo Media Noche, a very different breed of the industry’s most powerful brand. Of course, the standard No. 2 Torpedo can be found among the lineup of sizes. However, two new vitolas have been introduced: a ginormous 7” x 58 Churchill and a stout 5” x 55 Edmundo. The Edmundo is actually a variation of Cuba’s Montecristo Edmundo, just made a little thicker with a 5 inch frame.

I chose the Edmundo. I love the size.

The Media Noche is dark. Very dark. The wrapper may not be the oiliest leaf on the planet, but you can feel its soft, silky texture when rolling it between your fingertips. This Connecticut Broadleaf is used to complete a long-filler blend of Nicaraguan, Dominican and Peruvian tobaccos; the same combination used for Montecristo Platinum and the new Montecristo Serie C. The pre-light aroma is sweet with a slight barnyard influence, with no hints of ligero.

The cigar is packed pretty solid. So much so, it took some extra effort to cut with my Xikar MTX. Fortunately, the pre-light draw was just fine...a little resistance, exactly how I like it. First thought after lighting: the Edmundo is a chimney, filling my palate with thick, chewy smoke and leaving behind a series of thick, pillowy clouds overhead. The burn is somewhat slow, creating a dark grey ash that’s a bit flaky, but strong.

The smoke is leathery in character with a toasty (almost smokey) note that hits the center of my tongue and the nose. A hint of cedar sneaks in just before the sweet aftertaste takes center stage. The aftertaste is very long, and the surrounding area has become filled with the lovely aroma of toasted wood. The Edmundo finishes with a bang, developing a deep richness and creeping into the full-bodied realm. Thanks to the Edmundo’s thick 55 ring, the burn remains cool right down to the last inch.

Yeah...I really need to get out on the golf course sometime soon. Montecristo Media Noche will no doubt keep my mind off my terrible game.
