Good light flavor
They are good, but very hard to get a good draw on, they need to play around with right mixture and wrapper until problem is corrected, the regular size ones are perfect but these in the tins are not

Love those Montecristo's
Especial #3 is my regular smoke. I like the taste, and the way they burn,.nice and slow, with a long ash.Or, when you have a long comforable time period to relax and enjoy the best of a cigar, a Churchill seems to really fit the bill, that is for me anyway. Gotta love those Montecristo's.The White Label Montecristo's are also very interesting. I am developing an apprciation for those as well. Good luck with your cigar selections. Hope they are as pleasing as these have been for me...

Unusual batches
Normally a great little quickie cigar. I've bought these many times before. However, the last two orders were slightly defective. The order that I just recd had green blemishes on many of them. Either immature wrapper or mold? I threw many away. In the previous order, many of the cigars had tiny holes in them below the label towards the lit end. I couldn't get a good draw unless I put my fingers over the little holes. That was disappointing too. If these issues continue, I may need to try another brand or company to buy from... Too bad, otherwise I would give 5 stars. I like these little guys in the Summertime.

Nice when you don’t have time for a full size cigar. Burns well. Comparable to Cohiba Pequenos but a bit cheaper.

So far they’re very good, I did have 1 cigar that cracked just above the label and was difficult to draw. Hopefully that will be only one!

Great quality and value
This is the best value in a small cigar if you buy the thirty pack. The taste is great and they always burn evenly and stay lit.

Good smokes for quick smoke time
They burn good and have good Monte flavor, last about 30 to 40 minutes. Love the tins, you can carry a tin with you as they have the fresh seal pouch with them and they keep protected.

My favorite little smoke
Living in Wisconsin I can't always take the time to enjoy a full sized cigar during these cold winter days. I have found these Monties are as good as their big brothers, well constructed from quality tobacco. George (Mequon,Wi)

Great little smoke
The Montecristo Memories give all the smoking pleasure of the bigger Montes with out the cost or the longer commitment to a large cigar. Well made for a mini and very tasty.

Montecristo minis
I don't always have time for a cigar, so I keep cigarillos on hand. This is the first time I bought the Montecristo Memories. Great little cigar, I think they are the best I've had in a long time. Nice size and not too thin, like a lot of others. Great flavor. Will buy them again.

Fine little cigars
I'm a Merchant marine officer. I usually smoke four of these a day. They are of remarkably consistent quality. Unlike some other small cigars which always seem to be rolled too tightly. The Montecristos always draw easily. Flavor develops early and lasts throughout.

Baby Monti's
A great smoke if you only have 20 to 30 minutes to enjoy a cigar. I punch mine with a mechanical pencil. Unlike other small cigars, they are very well made, burn nicely, and have the consistency of a larger premium stick. And best of all, you can taste the Monti in every puff. It's a keeper!!
Customer Testimonials

I love this cigar. I smoke 'em to the nub every time!

As mundane as the Classic is, it has a darker cousin called Reserva Negra, that comes in a cute little 4.5" X 44 short corona which delivers a bit more flavor, complexity & strength. A quick 25 minute romp through clouds of thick white smoke, a great draw, tastes of earth & black tobacco, with a touch of peppery spice. Somewhat complex, perhaps due to the thick,oily maduro leaf that graces the well constructed mini frame of this flavor bomb by Monte's standards. I like it a lot, actually. It makes me anxious to try the White Series & Platinum Series standard 5.5" X 44 coronas I have had stashed away in my treasure humidor of solo sticks, in hopes that they too will bring more zing to the party. Anyway you slice it, for me at least, all of the Montecristo blends command a higher price point than I am willing to pay. Not while Diesel, Sancho Panza & many other excellent blends remain affordable. With that said, I give the Montecristo Reserva Negra corona a nice 89/100. Not bad at all!
A classic. In it's day.... The #3 Corona is 5.5" X 44 & features mild Dominican long fillers, wrapped in a splotchy Connecticut shade leaf. Well made, but a bit soft, particularly near the head & foot. Prelight aroma is earthy with mushroom scent. It starts off mild & one dimensional & remains that way for the entire journey. Earth, wood, mushroom. It's a short lasting vitola, compared to most 5.5" Coronas, too. About 30 minutes. Overall, I give it a 87/100, because it remains true to its origins. Post revolution, I mean. Like Punch, except that blend is as fabulous today as it was then. Montes are unfortunately, merely the same now, as then. If you have to have them, then go for it. I think I understand why. But, if you are like me, grab a 5 pack of Don Lino Colorado Rothchildes, for the same price as one of these & enjoy a much more enjoyable & complex mild blend.
I have smoked Montecristo off and on, for years, whenever the budget allowed, and have always found them to be a great smoke... Until now. This cigar has been resting for weeks under controlled humidification. No sooner did I clip the tip and fired up the stick, the wrapper started to fall off. I wound up smoking it with just the binder to hold it together. It was a struggle to keep it lit. It burned off center and then tunneled. The flavor was crap. I suspect this poor construction was a fluke, and will try them again. But, this was the worst ten-dollar cigar I have ever smoked. Bitterly disappointed.
DA of Rochester, NY
A smooth smoke (just as you should expect from Montecristo) but in my opinion, inferior to both the Classic, which I consider the standard of high-end mild cigars, and the White Label. Still, it's as good as its pedigree suggests it should be.
MP of Benton, AR
Great cigar, I don't care what size you get. Always smooth, good construction, long ashes.
I'm in real trouble with my wife, since she is already complaining about the dollar amount I spend on cigars. After smoking a Churchill, I have to add this fantastic Montecristo to my list. It took me more than an hour to finish, and I was still wanting more. This cigar has the right amount of strength, that could be enjoyed any time of the day. While it is not mild, it is so smooth that you don't even think about the bracket it falls under. With an even burn, easy draw, huge billows of smoke, and great construction. Who could ask for anything better than this cigar.
DM of Taylor, MI
Just received a 10-pack of Monte churchills. What a wonderful smoke! Well constructed, a lovely draw, even burn and plumes of lush smoke! It's mild-to-medium bodied and very smooth. It's a perfect everyday smoke. I don't always need to smoke a full-body powerhouse. Highly recommended.

I have a problem with Brando's trashing (86 for this cigar is a trashing) of a benchmark cigar. This is one handful of the cigars all others are compared to. Yes, it doesn't have the mix of tabacco or vary from foot to nub, but no one wants to each french cuisine every night either. This is the BLT of cigars, allways tastes the same and allways hits the spot. When you are done experimenting, you can always go back to the Montecristo and get that same wholesome, reassuring, wonderful smoke. Its like a BLT and tomato soup, sometimes, it really hits the spot.
RM of Centennial, CO
The No. 3 is by far my favorite cigar. Not too long, not too short, amazing flavor and always an even burn. I'd smoke them more often if I could afford too.
JF of Astoria, NY
I ordered 10 of the churchills from a daily deal and wish that I had ordered more. (Montecristo) These are by far my favorite cigar and I have even tried the cuban montes. They are very smooth, have great taste, white ash, and an even burn. You can't beat these cigars. I'm definitely going to buy another box when I run out.
TM of San Diego, CA
Been smoking the #3's (Montecristo) for years now. My favorite! The Cuban equivalent has nothing over these. Always a great taste with never a surprise. Has a nutty blend to them.
DP of Merritt Island, FL
A fine cigar indeed (Montecristo)! I've been spending over 3 times the price on the Cubans and am convinced that the Dominican version is a great tasting cigar as well. It also impressed my cigar smoking friends as well!
GB of Las Vegas, NV
Flawless. Every Montecristo I've ever smoked is dense and perfectly constructed, and the burn is always even. A little on the mild side (easily the mildest cigar in my rotation), but not lacking flavor by any means - a very smooth, even creamy smoke. Outstanding!
PD of Metairie, LA
The Montecristo is one of my favorite cigars. For the price, I would have to say it's in my top 10 of favorite cigars. It has a good taste and a smooth burn all the way down. Not too strong, it is a great cigar for beginners. A Montecristo is a great, relaxing way to end an evening.

Montecristo is easily one of the world’s most recognizable trademarks when it comes to cigars and I’m quite sure you’ll agree with me on that. Ask a few folks to name three brands of cigars off the top of their head and I can all but guarantee you that Montecristo will be one of them along with Macanudo and Cohiba. What I find interesting is that for all of the fame and recognition this brand gets, these cigars have very little to offer the savvy cigar-enthusiast. These days the trend is headed towards fuller-bodied and more complex cigars that are loaded with flavor and spice. This is not to say that there aren’t a great number of people who enjoy the Montecristo brand however. More so, it is an observation of a brand that owes much of its recognition to the fact that its Cuban counterpart is largely regarded as one of the finest cigars ever produced. To validate this I grabbed a 5-pack of the Montecristo #2 size (Dominican version of course) after realizing that I hadn’t smoked this cigar in at least a few years and owed it to the brand to review it objectively.

Out of the box it is worth noting that the Montecristo is a very well-constructed cigar with no soft-spots to speak of. This is true of each of the five I have on my desk. The Connecticut-Shade wrapper is golden in color with a slightly mottled and blotchy appearance. Clipping the head I drew on the cigar a few times before actually sparking it and found the pre-light draw to be reminiscent of freshly-baked bread and very pleasant. The draw itself is perfect and provides just the right amount of resistance. I toasted the foot, took a few puffs and I was off… The first few draws are very smooth and produce large, thick clouds of smoke. The flavor is gentle with a subtle cedar note and a very short finish. At an inch or so in the burn is impeccable and a sweet, woody aroma has filled the air. The ash is tight and compact and requires a firm tap to dislodge it from the foot. At the half-way mark I find the flavor and strength to be nearly identical to the first inch. Nuances of cedar persist but really not a whole lot else going on with the fabled Montecristo. With just over an inch and a half to go I find myself ready to lay the #2 to rest and hardly impressed with it.

The Monte #2 isn’t a bad smoke by any stretch of the imagination but it does lack the excitement and dimension of many of today’s newer boutique blends. In recent years the cigar industry has become one where the latest and greatest is constantly being redefined by small-batch production that utilizes the very best tobaccos often previously passed over by larger manufacturers due to lack of sustainability. While Montecristo will most likely remain a popular brand name for years to come, the cigar itself is average at best. The sea of mediocre cigars is a large one and if smooth to medium-bodied and one-dimensional is what you seek, there are plenty of alternatives to Montecristo that are equally well-constructed and sell for less than half the price.
