I split a box of 10 with another great member here on the forum and am finding myself really enjoying this cigar. I like the Monte profile and this cigar has that. It reminds me of the Media Corona, which I also enjoy. The wrapper has a molten chocolate appearance with some areas lighter in shade than others. Rather smooth to the touch and feels great in the hand. The cold draw has a light and pleasant sweetness.
The first third is predominantly coffee, cocoa, leather, with some light spices that all work together nicely. The leather fades in strength and makes way for a cream element. The burn is rather even with a great amount of heavy billows of smoke.
The cigar progresses nicely and the coffee along with the cream intensify while the cocoa seems to be at its peak at the start of the 2/3. Throughout the 2/3 I find the cocoa fading out and the coffee flavors coming through more strongly. I am finding a nice nutty element that reminds me of macadamia nuts and is a welcome accompaniment to the other flavors.
Entering the final 3rd of the cigar the creaminess is now in full stride and carrying the lion share of flavor. I find the coffee to be there as well along with the nutty flavors and an undertone of leather. The spices from the beginning of the cigar are no longer present, or at least I am not detecting them. Overall I really like the Petit Edmundo and would be hard pressed to turn one down. I look forward to smoking the last one I have from the split I did, and will definitely be ordering more of these cigars.
