Montesino

An affordable gem from Fuente

There's a few brands that can regularly be found in the CI ashtrays. While we have to burn new cigars as they come in (tough job, right?), there's some perennial favorites that pop up week to week without a doubt. I wish I could tell you Fuente was in there, but, the high-end premiums from them are a little too rich for our blood. Luckily, Montesino exists.

Although slightly different in taste than the regular Fuente line, the smooth and mellow Montesinos are a nice value. Handmade with Connecticut shade or Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers, Nicaraguan binders and Dominican long-filler leaves. Add a box of these to your cart, and enjoy the experience of the Fuente family techniques without taking a second mortgage.

last box of Montesino Diplomatico
The last box of the above seem stronger that previous boxes ? and I've smoked quite a few. Not as pleasant. Too much of a "buzz"

Great cigar
I have been buying the cigars for years tried other brands but always go back to the Montesino cigar.

One of my favorite smokes. A gem that most do not know about.
I truly enjoy these sticks. Had one many years and have always tried to keep a few around in my humidors. Purchased a box on CI several months ago and was excited for their arrival. Needless to say, they smoked fantastic. However, there was one issue, about 6 or 7 of the sticks were damaged. I do not believe this was a direct issue with CI, as the box seemed to be in great shape, both the cigar box and shipping box. So this must have just been a poor quality check (which is hard to imagine as these come from the Fuente family) - With that said, I will still buy them when I need more, but I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed with the last purchase.

Not Mild!
Not sure why these are listed as mild? They are medium to full in my Book. I admit that the blend I have in Humidors is 10 years old. But, no way can't be mild. One thing they are is "Excellent!". Thank you.

Trusty Friend
Some ten to fifteen years ago, I tried a Montessino and was hooked. If you're looking for a mild smoke, great construction, never a dud--this is good one! And get this: a Fuente product for less than four bucks!

Montesino Diplomatico customer review
Great cigar and enjoyed my selection

Very nice cigar
I used to smoke these all the time and when I saw them on CI I thought I'd try them again. For a smaller cigar these pack a bunch of flavor. Well made and an even smoke. Really a solid choice for anyone that wants an inexpensive cigar that doesn't taste cheap.
Customer Testimonials
It is an overall smooth draw with a mild foot, the body gets spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg notes and leading into the finish are toasty flavors. It burned even and the ash wasnt too long, the ash color was light. Over all I would call this light and spicy.
great cigar
I forgot about these. I received one in a sampler two years ago, liked it and ordered a box. When I went to order my second box they were out of stock and after checking numerous times, gave up and forgot about them. Recently a friend gave me a box of Robusto's - natural wrapper. They are great. Now, these are manufactured by Fuente, which explains the shortages, and have the excellent construction characteristics for which Fuente is known. This is a light cigar, mild as to taste and body. I'm told that Montesino hasn't change their blend in nearly 40 years and has a world wide following. This is a wonderful cigar for the first of the day, especially with a clean pallet; and as I wouldn't some an Oliva V, Ashton VSG, etc. as the first cigar of the day on an empty stomach, likewise I wouldn't smoke the Montesino as the last of the day after three or four cigars. It would tast like so much hot air. Get them while you can.
These are pretty good. If you want a real Montesino grab some of the "Cabinet Series" as they have a sungrown wrapper. Now that is a cigar to savor!!!
Hard to believe that a cigar as mild and smooth as the Montesino can have so much good flavor. A friend gave me 3 toro's, I smoked them, I enjoyed the heck out of them so now I'm buying a box as soon as CI gets their shipment in.
Montesino Diplomatico, maduro wrapper. The perfect golf cigar, regardless of your round!
If you love AFs you will love these. Sweet and mellow. You can't go wrong with these.
Smooth (Montesino) my wife like's the smell I love the taste of this very mellow cigar,! jpb
i love these cigars (Montesino).great taste,nice burn,great aroma.i always get the toro size (6x50)this cigar is the same box after box.if ya like a lighter tasting,well made smoke.this ones for you brotha.
A great all around smoke (Montesino) with easy draw, and bellows of rich, creamy smoke! A great smoke by A. Fuente.
